Final Breakdown


Overall, the gameplay is solid, but marred by the fact that too many events must be "triggered" rather than explored for.


Visually, Nibiru is superb, offering stunning graphical environments to explore.

Sound and Music:

The musical score is awe-inspiring, but someone really let their guard down with the voice acting for the American release.


Puzzle difficulty in Nibiru is limited, and too many solutions are a matter of trying everything in your limited inventory on just one or two possible places.

Controls and Interface:

The controls are exactly the same as Mysterious Island's, which is a wonderful thing; the ability to explore the item-combination engine was something I had missed in Echo.


If you're an adventure game fan, Nibiru is probably worth your time, especially if you enjoyed Future Games' earlier work The Black Mirror. If you're not, I'd advocate doing more research before deciding whether you wish to give it a try.
