brief story Simon the Sorcerer 5: Who'd Even Want Contact?!
GENERAL APPEARANCE Simon was himself. This clearly understand when the "stronghold of emancipation", built of sand ardent feminist red cap, crumbles under the relentless blows of the magician in jeans. Simon was Simon, and only real treasure hunters will find a "stupid aliens' other advantages. Although unlikely, and they will be happy. Funny characters (the captain of the "Black rhinestone" Jack Cock, well you know someone mimics, or genie, game events assesses in terms of psychoanalysis) and some unusual puzzles, interesting "in a vacuum", are losing their charm in the background of the absurd, even for a plot of Oz and boring locations. Jokes can be divided into two schools: in the spirit of "South Park" and in the style of Terry Pratchett. And if the first, topical and politically incorrect, well suited the character of the protagonist, the second, cute and harmless, does not fit into the context of the game. However, both are rare exceptions hopelessly templates. Technologically, the game also is not anything outstanding. Sel-shading technology allows you to produce a beautiful close-ups, but still spoils the "budget" animation ...
But Simon was Simon, all these shortcomings, he knows and he often makes fun of, and the audacity of bribes. Yes.
Bolotnik and Goldilocks met Simon in all parts of the series. "Stupid aliens" were no exception.
In the middle of the game Simon will be without his magic-cap stock and it will have to go with a conventional backpack. If they drive away the evil of the crab, of course.
Disadvantages The plot, graphics, humor, music - all at the secondary level. Progress compared to the previous part of the show is virtually nonexistent.
ADVANTAGES Personality Simon, two and a half of bright minor character, as many good jokes.
