The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles Review
The Book of Unwritten Talesmay well have been stuck in development for a long, protracted length of time – due to a slow and mammoth task of localisation from German – but when it finally received an English-language version, the game was hugely impressive. A deep, complex story split between four heroes, detailed graphics that were full of character and a brilliant rousing musical score, with impressive voice acting. Not to mention a sense of humour that was legitimately funny.
So it comes as no surprise that a sequel was soon under way, and just over a year later, The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles has emerged – actually a prequel to the first game – still following two of the protagonists we met before, namely the adventurer Nate and his strange, furry sidekick Critter.
