the Runaway series returns.  I need to remember to grab the first one off of GOG as I think I played it but can't quite remember.  Luckily this one is supposed be independent of the others to attact new fans.

I got about 3/4 of the way through the first one when my PC ate the save file.

I haven't done the second, but I hear it's pretty good.

I subscribe to Comcast Games OnDemand.  Not a great service, but they have a ton of puzzle games ( a lot of the gem matching and hidden picture games ).  Anyway, they have the first two there.  I finished the first one and just started the second.

Played the demo to the first one and loved it but never did get around to playing any of the games.

here's another trailer.  I don't know, from the way they talk it doesn't sound so independent to me.

Just finished this one. Overall, it was a very fun adventure, and definitely much better than the previous efforts.

Runaway 1 had great graphics, bad characters, difficult adventuring, and a total let-down of a finale. It was 'okay'.
Runaway 2 had great graphics, bad characters, bad writing, no humour, difficult adventuring and no finale. It was very very bad.

Third time's a charm, because while it was an uphill battle for the game to convince me of its merits (I didn't look forward to playing it, but felt like I should give it a go since I had bought it), it was a nice surprise. The story's fun, the writing is actually genuinely funny (a first for a Runaway game), and the game even has logic puzzles. The only times I got stuck and had to consult the (very good) in-game hint system, I thought to myself I could have figured those out on my own if I had had a bit more patience.

So, don't ignore this game because of the previous games, it can stand on it's own, and is one of the best adventures I've played.
