Al Emmo and the Lost Dutchman's Mine Review
Review by Sara
Al Emmo is a middle aged man with no job, lacking in stature and a full head of hair, who lives with his parents. After traveling to meet his mail order bride in Anozira, a near ghost town out west, his potential lover is unimpressed with his demeanor and general appearance, leaving him in haste, stranded in the middle of nowhere. Our protagonist then begins to explore the town and outlying areas, biding time until another train rolls through town.
Two story lines intertwine in this thoughtful game, Al Emmo's search for an acceptable, or rather any bride and the mystery of the lost Dutchman's mine which features the main character delving into both issues. Dialogue is particularly witty and rather enjoyable, including such prevalent pop culture references as the first chapter titled “Dude, where's my train?” However, the voice acting for the main character, Mr. Al Emmo, is cumbersome and his high pitched, whiny, and squeamish tone grows annoying rather quickly.
In addition, there is no background music unless entering a location such as the saloon in which another character is playing an instrument. The effect of this can make the game seem a bit dull and slow moving at times, but generally speaking the creative plot will keep you intrigued.
Graphics are not particularly noteworthy or original and serve as a minor detractor from the overall experience of game play. However, mini-games are exuberantly creative and challenging and are woven into the plot seamlessly, including mixing wild, outlandish drinks such as the “Flaming Kev” without any knowledge of their ingredients.
Conclusion - Good for Those Who Like Slower Paced Adventures
On the whole, Al Emmo has its downsides that may result in a less appealing game, namely the overwhelmingly annoying voice acting of the main character and tendency towards a slow moving, possibly boring pace, but this game is worthwhile to players seeking a true adventure and challenge, and most audiences will be joyfully amused by the witty, sarcastic dialogue and original plot line.
