The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 Cup Not serious entertainment
2 Cups A reasonable game, worth a try
3 Cups A good game, worth playing
4 Cups A great game, well worth your time
5 Cups An outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been underrated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

AGS Panel Review

"The Samaritan Paradox is a game with a story cleverly split into a real-world, Gothemburg-based thriller and a medieval fairy tale. The graphics are nice low-res backgrounds with good animations and together with great music provide a dense atmosphere. The story is interesting and the characters have all their own agendas with a dynamic dialog system that allows diving deeper into the various personalities. The most noteable aspect of the game are the puzzles which appear in a wide range of types and are challanging, yet fair and rewarding. However, the general lack of responses to actions as well as several technical glitches make this game a bit rough around the edges for a commercial release. "

I'd been looking forward to TSP for a long time and it didn't disappoint. It's a very smart adventure with mature themes but still very fun to play. The characters are believable, the writing is strong and the puzzles are pitch-perfect. The decision to use two totally differing art styles for the two different settings was a nice touch and you can tell a lot of love and effort went into those backgrounds.

A very strong game and one you really should play if you have the chance.

A solid adventure game, some good puzzles. I enjoyed the book sections much more than the real-life sections, which sometimes felt a bit forced to me. There were quite a lot of missing interactions but I think these have probably been fixed (I had an early review copy). The plot was interesting but I wasn't convinced by the plot twist at the end.

Really great game. Interesting plot with twists and turns, nice atmospheric surroundings and graphics. Original puzzles. I'd recommend this

I am enthusiastic. very nice plot, the subject treated well in various aspects, thanks to the subtitles I could appreciate every dialogue, (let me emphasize that I lose a lot of videogames '' only'' because they are not translated , in italian)
I believe it has a good gameplay does not get bored and has a good pace.
be recommended.
