Rainmaker Software’s Isle of the Dead is an innovative mix of first-person shooter and point-and-click adventure game. Of course, innovation isn’t always a good thing, as it’s known to pop up on lists of worst PC games of all time.

    YES! 😀

      Yeah I should probably better feedback. I was just excited seeing you actually reviewed this. Plus that tawdry, misleading box-art…

      Anyway, I was not disappointed. This review actually had a surprising amount of background information, compared to other videos out there. It seems like you got further into it than the other plays I’ve seen too. (Even finishing it?) Had no idea there were two versions of this either.
      Great job as usual.

      Only problem: I won’t be able to unsee the image of you squeezing Rainmaker Software’s invisible giant balls with your hand.

    How did we both end up choosing an adventure / 1st-person shooter for our shows this week? Next thing you know we’re going to end up choosing the same GAME one of these days! XD

    nice review mr. LGR. I had this game as a child, and it almost gave me permanent brain damage. So I was hoping you were acting more in an angry mode. This game doesn’t deserve a mild or neutral approach, if you ask me. Are you doing your reviews unscripted by the way? Sometimes I can’t believe how you can tell so much information in only a matter of seconds, but on the other hand, if you are doing your reviews scripted, wouldn’t that require tons of pages of writing… since you are talking really a lot?
