Belief and Betrayal is a ‘Point and Click Adventure game’ — something you see a lot less of these days in the age of photo-realistic graphics and free-roaming open-ended game worlds. The ‘Point and Click Adventure’ was a type of game which saw real success back in the 90s – those were the days of great games like Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Broken Sword — unfortunately here’s where the likeness ends!
Belief and Betrayal states on the box “Unveil dark secrets that could destroy humanity” and “Become enthralled in a secretive and mysterious world of power and intrigue; truth and conspiracy” — which I initially thought, “this sounds an awful lot like the Da Vinci Code, but it might be good all the same”, I think it’s fair to say the developers have taken some inspiration from it!
I installed the game — it took a while, so I went away and make a hot beverage, came back to find it was still installing — it eventually finished, I took this to be a good sign – there must be lots of high-quality graphics and audio to make for a really polished game experience. Unfortunately once I loaded the game up I found that this certainly wasn’t the case!
