Funk of Titans Review
It’s always particularly tough to find the funk of a game when it already doesn’t have much rhythm.

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule

I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Where are all the naked chicks???

Really, I had high expectations of this game...but unfortunately these expectations were not met. Reading the back of the box makes the game sound like it's gonig to be some kind of pornfest, but the only nudity actually depicted is a guy's naked butt and a split second of tits. Voyeur 2 dumps you in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, let's just say Montana for argument's sake. There is no electricity, just a solar panel. You are all alone, and you like it. For companionship and entertainment, you have a gun, a camera, and a 1930's-ish radio. Basically, you are Ted Kazcinski.

The peace and quiet is shattered when a wealthy woman builds a house accross the valley. You start spying on her and her visitors with your really expensive video and audio equipment. All this "plot development" unfolds before the game begins. The game actually starts one night with you preparing for a nightcap of spying. Apparently, the rich woman's father died and everybody and their dog is at her house to see who gets the dad's share of stock that he'd been holding in a pharmaceutical company. This is where you, the kind-hearted voyuer freak, come in. You are supposed to stop a murder by shooting the murderer and making sure that you get some incriminating evidence on him or her. You only have one bullet, so use it wisely. Each time you play, the game won't last more than ten minutes. You have to play it several times before you can win, but once you do, the fun is lost. Plus, there are only two real endings which pulls the life out of the game as well.

HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT A MURDER WILL HAPPEN??

The graphics are good (Not as good as a T.V., but good) and so is the sound (unfortunately the best part of the game), but the game is full of problems. Even with twice the minimum system requirements the game still loves to freeze up during key points in the game. The box warns of nudity and adult subject matter, but I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone over ten. It is just too frustrating with all of it's freezing up, and too mind numbing with all of it's technicalities.

Trust me, if you're looking for a titilating game, this one is not worth the split second boob shot or the guy's ass. Playability sucks. You basically point your camera at a room and watch a short video clip. Then you get your gun (you have no control over aiming) and shoot somebody. This game made me want to shoot myself -- it casts the player as a complete loser with no life except his animal friends and the people across the valley, who are totally unaware of his existence. Thinking about this puts a bit of a damper on the fun, hmmm? I suppose that if you are a reclusive Luddite, believing that technology is the evil of the world, this game is for you. But then, if you were like that, what would you be doing reading this over the Internet?

C+ Revolution report card
  • Good graphics and sound
  • Tries to be too many things -- fails at all
