Another decent all-talkie adventure game, set in the spooky New England of HP Lovecraft and based on his Cult Of The Cthulu books. It's a case of an involving storyline winning out over less than top-notch presentation: characters scale badly as they make their way around the screen, and 'atmospheric' close-ups look bloody silly because there's no attempt at lip-synching. But anyway, at least the CD version has a (clunky) mouse-driven interface and the speech is clear and well-acted. Despite its minor faults, the plot means that Lovecraft fans will enjoy it To round it all off, the CD also includes a simulation of the Lovecraft Museum to wander through, which is hardly a multimedia sensation, but it's a nice touch all the same.

Following Its success with the Lovecraft-inspired 30 graphic adventure, Alone in the Dark, French publisher Infogrames is currently creating it's first official game based upon Lovecraft's Cthulu Mythos. Shadow of the Comet is set in the New England town of Isthmus, in which strange goings on are discovered by the astronomer John T. Carter, who has set out to prove the theory of eccentric British Scientists: that the night sky over Isthmus doesn't appear as it should do. While in Isthmus, Carter uncovers a dark cult trying to open a pathway for the Ancient Ones mentioned in the Necronomicon to return to Earth. Carter must prevent the ancient gods from succeeding in their plans, or the Earth will face a new dart age. This stunning graphic adventure uses the advanced techniques employed in Etemam. This not only allows the designers to incorporate 100 impressive locations, but also large dose-up animations of important actions, or the faces of the games' forty characters.
