I first found “the nomad soul” on p.c., and was hooked, it draws you into an immense city, filled with interactive people.

I'll keep this opinion short & sweet. The Nomad Soul is a port from last years PC game. An adventure game set in a Blade Runner-esque backdrop with plenty of exploring and puzzle solving to do. The game exhumes an intoxicating atmosphere and conveys the storyline pretty well (you have to do plenty of 'piecing-together'). However, points are deducted for the jittery frame rate & frequent loading pauses. If you can forgive the game for these annoyances, then this is an enjoyable action adventure, some way off perfection, but reasonable none the less. Oh, and by the way, the soundtrack features plenty of David Bowie (which makes a change from the endless generic Read the complete review
