Doctor Leporello did every possible thing to seek cure for his dying son, and when your familiar foe, the evil dwarf appeared in town – the townfolks started to blame the Doctor for the missing children, saying that he has been using children’s life energy to prolong his son’s life. The Stone Guest takes on another tired story of an ill son and a cure-finding mission; and unfortunately, it does not go much further beyond that.
The Stone Guest looks and feels like the previous works from ERS-G, both in terms of the graphics and the gameplay. The visuals in The Stone Guest are great, but nothing really striking or spectacular, many of the locations in the game look very familiar as if they are being adapted from those in other ERS’ games. The cutscenes, soundtracks and the voice overs are just fine; again, nothing in particular to be thrilled about.
As you might have guessed, the gameplay is fairly mediocre. From the predictable story development to the easy and dull adventure gameplay, the 3 and a half hours of gameplay felt like 5+ hours for us. Luckily, the hidden object scenes and the puzzles are better; a number of them are arguably creative and fun.
Personally, we do not recommend the purchase of the Collector’s Edition since the extra features are not the strongest. There are not even actual Collectibles to collect, which is unacceptable nowadays; other extras are just the usual gallery and replayable stuff.
