A shot in the dark
If you go in expecting a lot from this game, then you're going to be disappointed. However, if you lower your expectations a little then you might not be too let down, as it has a lot of potential that it just doesn't quite live up to. It's a strange mystery adventure, with elements of things as diverse as Myst and Dear Esther, and features some impressive visuals and a haunting narrative but its many frustrations bring the enjoyment level down. You find yourself waking up on an island, with little but the wreckage of your boat and the cold water as company. As you explore this bleak island, you'll encounter various puzzles which, if solved, will reveal its many secrets and fill in the gaps about your own reasons for being there. In gameplay terms, this is an adventure with a strong focus on exploration alongside the puzzle solving, and with a narrative that is deliberately vague and open to interpretation. The puzzles are a nice mix of styles but most of them are pretty challenging and should make even hardened genre fans scratch their heads from time to time. Montague's Mount seems like it should be an easy game to like for adventure fans. It's got a highly intriguing storyline with an interesting setting and is genuinely atmospheric and moody for the most part. Exploring is enjoyable enough, as are the puzzles, but the game's sheer grimness and poor lighting does make solving some puzzles difficult, while the lack of an independent save feature is also annoying. The game is pretty short too, so overall this is perhaps one for the dedicated genre fan only.
