IMG Reviews The Next Big Thing
6:10 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Focus Interactive's The Next Big Thing. The humorous adventure title is set in a Hollywood where monsters are real and make their living acting in movies. Players must help reporters Dan and Liz solve a variety of puzzles and mysteries along the way.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

There are lots and lots of places to visit, characters to interact with, and items to play with in this game. The characters are enjoyable, the monsters remind one of the standard B-movie fare. I especially liked the single minded robots that prevent passage into certain spaces. Liz and Dan, although very opposite in their attitudes, make a great pair and their interactions add a lot to the enjoyment of the game. The environment itself is very imaginative, full of creativity that portrays the game environment very well.
