Quandanry has sone a review of Anachronox. Although there is no final rating given, the overall tone is very positive. Here's a snip:

    One big plus is the option to save anywhere or choose to use the save points. Iím not sure why anyone would choose the latter but hey, itís your nickel! I did crash out to desktop a couple of times so saving becomes even more important. My system is very stable at the moment and I havenít had any problems running other recent software. However this did not occur often, the game loads quickly and saving and reloading is painless. There are only eight save game slots. The game seems to have no dead ends so eight should be sufficient.

    Although quite linear at the start the game opens up during your journey. I was nearly stuck a few times but a bit of lateral thinking and exploration soon solved any problems. One of the mini games was a huge sticking point until I realised clicking on an icon reloaded my weapons. Checking posts on the Internet I found I wasnít alone in figuring that one out. This is not a puzzle though but an interface problem and should have been fixed in beta testing.
