A Couple Of years ago a game called Druuna: Morbus Gravis was released, and it was one of the worst games ever made. Worryingly, instead of retiring from a fickle and cruel industry, the people who made it decided to continue, and this more traditional point-and-click adventure is the result.
Based on an Italian comic-book hero (who is also apparently one of the biggest stars on Canadian TV), Martin Mystere is an intriguing adventure, one that strives to be both humorous and puzzling. Thankfully, aside from his rather unnerving resemblance to Charles Napier, the eponymous hero is rather likeable and the murder mystery in which he's embroiled is engaging and rather unique.
Unfortunately, most of the other characters are wooden and the dialogue is far too wordy, but you shouldn't let that put you off, as this is one of the better adventures to appear since the genre took a nosedive.
