|Videogamepeople Resonance is a must have if you are in the adventure games, also if you’re not. This being for the immersive and non-predictive story it offers. The game-play is great but the biggest high five is for the story and that is where you see the commitment of the persons involved to create this game. Read Full Review||95/100|
|BeefJack Quasi-futuristic point-and-click thriller Resonance tangles with some big topics. But how well does it pair all the scientific mumbo-jumbo with cerebral puzzle solving? Read Full Review||87/100|
|The Digital Fix Those that follow the torrid torrents of fashion all come to realise that popular styles can rise out of the darkest unfathomable corners and then just as quickly fall back to the depths from whence they came, only to raise their heads again decades later.

With likeable, interesting characters, clever yet believable puzzles and a superb story, it was the best adventure game I’d played for years. Resonance is another adventure by Wadjet Eye in the same style (and the same inability to accept higher resolutions), but it’s been co-developed with a team called xii Games. Will the joint development cause the game to suffer? Woo, mystery! Read Full Review||70/100|
