As a final part to the old Amerzone
game, Amerzone: The Explorer's Legacy - Part 3
conveys everything nicely to the iPad. It isn't a wonder that Microids has been re-releasing some of their older titles in this manner. I don't know what kind of effort is involved in porting the game to the iPad, but since they have released several titles in this manner, they must have a system that doesn't make it too difficult for them. As a result, they can re-release some of their older products to audiences, both new and old, and at what I would imagine is a fairly low cost to themselves.
Amerzone makes a solid choice on their part as a game to release in this manner, and it definitely seems like something that both gamers who remember playing it on the PC or PlayStation One and those who are just now getting into adventure games will want to download and have fun with. My only real problem is the somewhat pointless Part 2 and I can easily see gamers who accurately remember that middle part simply not downloading that app, and those gamers that do download it feeling a bit let down. At least before, your motivation was reaching the end. Here you reach a drop-off only to have to boot up Part 3 for the same pay-off.
Either way, Amerzone, in general, is a good purchase for the iPad for fans of the genre. While it wasn't the best game of its type to come out in the late 90's, it was still good, and actually, its a bit better than some new titles I've reviewed lately. In the end, I would recommend all three Amerzone apps in order to get the whole experience.
