The 3d environment was really cool to see, but felt bland after a while. When you're wandering around and a cutscene jumps on you, that's when it became interesting again. The snow added at lot to the atmosphere, which got it out of the bland area a bit later on in the game. One of my complaints is the lighting. I know the power in the city was out, but my eyes felt stressed from trying to see what I was looking at at times. The sky shots of some of the areas made it even more difficult to see what I was doing or where I was going or coming from.
The escort mission at the end bored me a bit, mostly because I was expecting things to happen during it that complicated the situation more and made room for some quick puzzles.
I didn't understand why I had to be sent back to the main page after the abrupt ending and credits just to see the rest of the ending of the game. It felt like it risked players quitting the game before seeing the ending, since they might miss that it says Epilogue instead of Prologue on the main menu.
The characters were ok. They stretched a little beyond 2-dimentional. I liked how you were gathering survivors and made me think of how that concept could of expanded this game on a larger scale. If the characters weren't keeping the story interesting, the music helped out in that area when those suspenseful scenes occurred in the game.
Overall, an all right War of the Worlds story with some cool cutscenes. I love the way you did the main menu, having it going along with the music and the Ben Jordan movie preview was fun to see. I'll be looking out for that on Youtube whenever it sees the light of day.

Without the arcade part that needs to be done again and again, this game is much shorter.
I thought the 12 times for the same arcade part was a misunderstanding of the game. But after reading the forum, no.
Even if this game was a real situation, doing the same movements again and again is a lack of planning from the hero.
SPOILER
Instead of avoiding the danger so many times (12x3=36 times more or less), i bet a real hero would try to suppress the danger!
Or the character should just find some streets with no robots from the roof to the helicopter... as it looks like a big city... and the whole process is supposed to last no more than 15 minutes...

Adventure game, with arcade parts.
An arcade part must be done 12 times!
3D game with 2D liberty of moving.

a 3d adventure game. Exciting survival story. Good graphics, characters. That doomsday feeling.

Very fun game with high immersion factor. The puzzles could be a bit more challenging and a bit less linear. I'm surprised that the icons used for look/use/walk were the default AGS icons considering that the graphics were high quality 3D images.

Otherwise, well worth playing!
