Re: Dexter PC game

I've played this on my iPhone 3GS and wasn't that impressed, heres why...

Controls can be difficult.
Graphics are good, but I noticed frequent glitching.
Memory hog (averaged 120MB for me) for original iphone and 3G that will be a problem, 3GS and 4's shouldnt be.
Load times vary from under 20 seconds to over 3 minutes.
Crashed quite often (once every 5-15 minutes, 6 crashes total for me) and Crash guaranteed if you get a call.
Battery Drainer, and made my phone very toasty.
Actually really short, just takes time to actually play it to the end.

Thats about it I think... since I yarr'ed it, since iPhone demos don't exist, and I wasn't impressed I removed it ( or i would have bought it), no harm since I played it for an hour only.

The voicing really wasn't that bad...

But Im grabbing the PC version now, will post once its done and installed smile

EDIT: The PC version is much the same, except for the tearing issues noted on the iphone version, memory also isnt a problem this game topped out at 250 MB of ram usage, not much for a normal system.

The contols are somewhat annoying on the PC, and there isnt much help in terms of hints of what you should do next, enless you have actually watched season 1 of dexter recently, since that is what the game is based on.

Some of the flash videos repeat endlessly on occasion which is annoying, and it doesnt support 1680x1080 just lower end resolutions, so people who like their desktop icons arranged nicely will be annoyed each time they load the game...

Camera control is a little awkward aswell, but that could be my mouse...

not worth buying, but still worth a play for a dexter fan.

Could really use a big update in graphics, engine, playability, size and scope, areas are small and simple.  Otherwise, not a bad effort at a dexter game, obviously designed for mobile devices not specifically PC's.

Re: Dexter PC game

I can't understand how they could ever make a good game about Dexter. A series that lives on emotions, acting and storytelling, can't be told through a game adaptation.

Something like Burn Notice would be perfect for a game adaptation:
1. Every "mission" you choose your partner: Fiona, Sam or Jesse
2. You restock your weapons at your mom's house
3. Savegame/safehouse is your appartment
4. Depending on the partner, you get a different car, the Hyundai Genesis, muscle car or one that Jesse drives
5. Every time you meet a client, you get a mission objective
6. You go to mission objective, do some dialogue options which can alter the result
7. You return to the client, getting updated mission objective
8. You set trip wires, bombs, fake stuff at the objective location
9. Showdown commences, you go at it with slow mo action because Michael almost never gets hit.
10. Return to the client for 10.000$ reward so you can repair your car, buy ammo and get upgrades for whatever.

Now that would be a game adaptation that would fit a TV series, because the series itself is very repetitive and balances on action being taken. Something Dexter totally isn't.

Re: Dexter PC game

Games based on TV series are equally bad as games based on movies. The only good game I could think of was 24 on PS2.

Re: Dexter PC game

well, isn't it just for tablets and iphones and such?

Re: Dexter PC game

If a smartphone or a tablet can run GTA3 then why does this look like shit? And it's also going to be PC, but probably no one will care. wink

GTA 3 had traffic, pedestrians, buildings that didn't look like cardboard boxes, shadows (!!), normal character animations (have you seen the animations displayed in Dexter 2 trailer?) and tons of other stuff. And that's from a game that was originally released in 2002.
