CG Online has put up their review of Anachronox (better late than never). 3 1/2 stars out of five is their rating, and they coplained about graphics, load time and some monotonous quest elements. Nevertheless, their summary is positive:

    Anachronox provides an entertaining, if somewhat been-there-done-that, role-playing experience. The plot is irreverent and fun, if mostly formulaic, while the characters and dialog are a mix of Monty Python inspired humor and Douglas Adams style sensibility (or lack there of). It's obvious that Hall has used some tried and true elements from role-playing lore, but they're the classics for a reason, and they work as well here as they ever have in the past. Sadly, also present are some of the classic pitfalls, such as being forced to repeatedly talk to everyone in sight, follow some monotonous take-this-there quests, and suffer through numerous annoying area loads. Brief moments of brilliance speak of the fantastic game that Anachronox could have been, but it never quite makes it up to anything more than slightly above average. A good pick for role-playing fans, but don't expect the second coming.
