The Adventure Collective by Phillip Jong
"The graphics in Relentless are breathtaking to look at. The details seen
despite a huge game world is testimonial to the attention given by the
programmers to this game. The CD music is surreal and a joy to listen to! Game
control sets an usual twist to the classical way of character manipulation. It
is one of the few adventure games that has combined successfully this large
degree of action sequence. The graphic engine even allows the player to track
Twinsen's movement through otherwise visually obscured areas by making the
walls or any obstructing object partially invisible. There are plenty of
puzzles, enough even to wet the appetite of most expert gamers. It easily
offers over 30 hours of solid gameplay. It is somewhat humorous to see how
different Twinsen can react to the exact same scene in different movement
modes. Twinsen's girlfriend is also quite funny."
"A beautifully animated adventure game that mixes a heavy dose of physical
action with puzzles while packing quite a punch in gameplay. It puts a
refreshing spin to the genre of adventure gaming."
Multimedia World, March 1995
"Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure, the latest adventure game from Electronic
Arts, is a complicated and sometimes mind-boggling fantasy that takes place on
Twinsun, a distant planet orbiting around two stars. The game centers on
Twinsen, a prophetic Chosen One whose task is to deliver his people from the
powers of darkness, personified by Dr. Funfrock."
"Although the plot is strictly cliche, Relentless is
a solid adventure with some role-playing elements thrown in. It also features a
host of dazzling animated and cinematic sequences. In fact, Relentless is one
of the most visually stunning games on CD-ROM."
"Relentless is not entirely intuitive, so you might die more deaths than
you'll care to remember. But if you stick with it, you'll be rewarded with
hours of intriguing play and enough jaw-dropping graphics to please even the
most jaded gamer."
Electronic Entertainment, January 1995
"This action/adventure game features outstanding graphics, great puzzles,
plenty of fights, a seriously awesome quest, and - best of all - true
originality. Relentless is an amazingly enjoyable experience. It's chock full
of action, discovery, and exploration."
