Runaway Trilogy

So, I was browsing the internets for adventure games, and I came across a series called "Runaway." Apparently, the games are developed for a more mature crowd, but they hope that the game(s) help to revitalize the ailing adventure format.

This trilogy of games looks interesting to me simply because I love adventure games...has anyone played any of the three games (there might only be 2 out at the moment)?

Official Website

Anyone know if they're worth playing?



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

While it looked lovely, I didn't enjoy playing Runaway 1, due to hating the main character with a passion, and having lots of infuriating puzzles, including major pixel-hunting, illogical / stupid puzzles and highly repetitive ones.

Gina was cute though.

Didn't bother with the sequels.

There are demos for Runaway 1 and 2, I'd suggest you try them.

Plenty of people (apparently) loved Runway.

I've heard the second one called "the anti-Christ of adventure gaming", but I'm not sure how true that is.

I just think they are ridiculously bland. Their puzzles and logic sucks if the first one's anything to go by (the only one I played).

I would assume this is the most accurate overview:
