The City of Lost Children
a game by Psygnosis Limited
Both Jeunet & Caro's wonderfully imaginative movie and Psygnosis' eponymously titled adventure game are now available at knock-down prices. However, given the choice we'd go for the film every time. The City Of Lost Children isn't a bad game, but it isn't a great one either. Its Alone In The Dark-style of presentation fails to capture the distorted nature and claustrophobic atmosphere of the film, and the unnecessarily clunky ingame mechanics prove frustrating from the off. If you haven't seen the film, you probably won't be disappointed; if you have you'll be able to compare the two, and will no doubt find it needs more than subtitles to keep you going throughout its duration.
