All roads lead to Rome
As the name suggests, this is the first part in a series of four episodic point-and-click adventures that aims to imitate the success and style of things like Fate of Atlantis and Gabriel Knight, but which sadly falls very far short of such lofty aspirations. It's not a bad romp but it's just distinctly average so it's likely that only diehard genre fans will get much enjoyment here. Freely adapted from a novel, the plot finds former priest-turned-doctor getting a call from an old friend while in Rome, but in classic fashion, when he shows up for their meeting, the old man is dead and our hero now finds himself caught up in a Da Vinci Code-style mystery involving the Vatican and organized crime. What follows is typical genre stuff, where you explore a series of environments while attempting to solve the numerous puzzles which bar your progress. These are mostly of the traditional inventory-based nature although you will find a couple of mini-games here as well. For the most part, this is well enough executed stuff, with decent puzzles and a reasonably gripping storyline which leaves you looking forward to the next part, although this first episode is a little low-key in nature, with more interesting things promised for future episodes. The visuals too are nice enough, with some very detailed and attractive environmental design to enjoy which harks back to the glory days of the genre. There is some ropey voice acting to endure and a few other elements which bring the enjoyment down, but overall, this is a solid, if unspectacular effort.
