It's Groundhog Day!
Although Randal's Monday features some clever writing and classic point-and-click gameplay, it ultimately falls far short of classics like Monkey Island and Discworld. This failure is largely due to two main elements, the first being some overly obscure and frustrating puzzles and the second being the intensely unlikable protagonist who really is enough to kill any interest you might have in the story. The game also features copious amounts of pop culture references, which can easily split audiences but it's all too easy to find the game just a bit too knowing and not enough fun to make it easily recommendable. The story is bit like the movie Groundhog Day, with Randall caught up in a series of events which repeat ad infinitum until he fixes them or the universe ends. In gameplay terms, this is a classic point-and-click style adventure, where you explore and solve numerous inventory-based puzzles and which also rely on Randall's rather dubious predilection for stealing things. The game also manages to throw in staggering amounts of pop culture references, so some players might find amusement in spotting them all, but in all honesty, it does get a little wearing. Other problems here include the fact that the gameplay is very slow, even for such a game, while the puzzles are deliberately obtuse and which creates a fairly high level of frustration all too frequently. There's also a sense of deja vu as many of the puzzles seem lifted from better games, while the unlikable main character also means that most players will find it hard to care about what unfolds here. All in all, this is a game which thinks it's clever but which ultimately proves to be less intelligent than it thinks it is.
