Anachronox review

IGN PC has reviewed Ion Storm's Anachronox. With a rating of 8.0/10 they seem to have appreciated it, thinking it's a good Amercian adaptation of the console-style RPGs...

    Where other attempts by American developers have flopped when they try to duplicate the console formula, for some reason it just works in Anachronox. Despite the aged graphics, the game makes you laugh and once you get past the first couple hours you'll find a truly fun RPG. While it isn't the 200+ hour monster that most PC gamers are used to (see Badur's Gate II for that), it will keep you busy for over 60 hours, and for a console-style RPG that is a very good length.

    Hopefully Anachronox is a sign of things to come. Finally, an American developer has created a console inspired RPG that isn't destined for the bargain bin within a week.
