Knee Deep's swampy noir mystery play is one of the most interesting and entertaining ways to frame a game you'll ever see. Just a shame the final act doesn't rise to the humid, neo-gothic heights of the rest.
Despite its basic visuals and limited gameplay, Knee Deep’s interesting, well-written story is worth the investment. This game’s strength is in its writing – the snappy dialogue and quirky characters will make you forget its flaws – most of the time. What many may take issue with is its relatively steep price for what is going to be a 4 to 5-hour experience for most players. If you can get past the cost, you’ll enjoy your time in Cypress Knee – just watch out for the gators.
Knee Deep takes the traditional narrative adventure and turns it on its head, presenting the action as if it were a stage drama. A few poorly designed mini-games prove to be more of an annoyance than gameplay variation, but the story is strong enough.
