Circle of Blood

Virgin's beautiful adventure Circle Of Blood ships this weekend.

An explosive beginning
Developer: Virgin
Publisher: Revolution
Platform: PC
Genre: Adventure

It follows the tale of George Stobbart, an American tourist in Paris who finds himself investigating an explosion. The gorgeous graphics are drawn by artists formerly of Don Bluth's renowned studio. Ten-layer cel animation is fantastic with character movements, and cinematic cut-scenes a joy to watch. Much care has been taken in integrating these scenes with gameplay and the effect is satisfying.

The story is rich in mystery and intrigue with plenty of puzzles and locations to explore. The interface is nice and simple, but then, so are the puzzles which can be a little disappointing.

Nevertheless, this is a superior adventure.

Bottom Line: Compelling and beautiful
