Road 96 Review (𝕋𝕖𝕒Я𝕒𝕚𝕟)

𝐎𝐮𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝, 𝐦𝐚𝐲𝐛𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞
Where do you think the adventures of the game take place? America? no The story takes place in a fictional country called Petra. It is not the time to play today and these years. The game takes place at the end of the 20th century. Road 96 takes the audience to Petria in 1996. A world where cassette tapes are popular and there is no news of virtual space and social networks. The TVs are cable and the big neon signs and motels give the audience a fascinating look at that era. Ready for a long drive on the highways of Petria?

One of the bright and very special points of the Road 96 game is the great attention to detail and the creative and timely use of visual effects. For example, there is a desert camp in the middle of the road. This camp is not indoor. When you sleep in the camp, you suddenly see a view of the desert sky. A view full of very beautiful stars that will leave you speechless. In another situation, a group of travelers picked up instruments and are playing music and happiness. You will join them. The sound of birds and flames have their place. These places are so beautifully designed that you might want to stay in each one for a few hours and enjoy it. The basis of the game is talking with people and traveling. But the point is to insist on going. So you should not stop too much at any point. All routes end at road 96.

What shapes the game is of a different kind. The ruling government of Petria in 1996 is a dictatorship. The economic and living conditions of the people are not good. Most young people seek to escape from the borders. It is this escape from the borders that gives the game a different color. The most interesting thing is the variety of characters. You can play the role of several young people of Petria. You may be able to get some of them safely across the border and others get stuck on the way to escape. You have until the election day to remove people from Petra. On the way out, you have to stop and hang out with people to find a car or eat. You can get the necessary instructions to continue the path by socializing with other people.

The work does not end with just one border crossing. After crossing the border every time, you have to go back to the starting place and pick up another young person. Your own face is not clear at all. In fact, your character is an unknown character. But each of the young people you travel with has a special and unique personality. Beyond the characters and crossing the path and not getting stuck, you have a much more important task. You have to use the energy level, financial resources and food storage in such a way that you last until the end of the path. For example, if you use a taxi or bus to move from one stop to the next, you have a chance to rest and your health bar increases. But you have to pay for taxi or bus. You can walk or use interstate cars. Walking has its own risks. Using off-road vehicles is not very easy, your life may be in danger.

The characters in the game each have their own story and have been processed in a special way. For example, one of the characters is John. John is a truck driver. He has a long beard and a masculine and big body. John, with his large stature, must hide behind the back seats of the car. This issue is both very funny and troublesome. He lost one of the fingers of his right hand in one of his trips. He loves the voice of one of the announcers on the CB radio network and used to carry a series of Life brand energy drinks in his truck.

Of course, not all characters are supposed to be good and attractive. For example, you may travel with several fugitives. You meet each character several times. You meet them in different forms and shapes, and you see each person in a different time frame. For example, you may meet John halfway or at the beginning of the path. Of course, the game did not intend to enter the specialized field of playing with time and creating time cycles.

Fitzgerald, a famous writer, said a very interesting sentence. "Every American can have a thousand different personalities," he says. The same is true for the people of Petra. At least each character in the game has two completely different faces. For example, one of the characters may be very scary and funny at the same time. Another character may be able to make you laugh but lead a sad and boring life. For example, a cruel person may be oppressed and oppressed. This characterization method has given a lot of depth to each character. This creative characterization has made the moment of this game very attractive.

You may have wondered that although the characters of Road 96 are different, if the game path is always the same, commuting on this path can become very boring. But the production team has found a solution for this problem. First, there is no news of a route and a destination. Although the final destination is road 96 and the border, you can reach the final goal from at least 5 different routes. Secondly, you have many opportunities to update your features and improve your character in every path and every round of the game. For example, you may fall into a valley while running and lose your life. The upgrade may boost your power enough to save your next turn. Also, sometimes upgrading skills can open up new options and dialogs. There are no repetitive and boring routes at all.

It has already been mentioned that nature and natural landscapes, including the desert sky at night, are beautifully designed. But on the other hand, the production team did not put much effort into mixing and harmonizing the dialogues, lips of the characters and their voices. Sometimes the movement of the characters is not very natural. We have to go to the music of the text of the game. The tracks chosen for Road 96 are truly masterpieces. These pieces reflect the general atmosphere of the 1990s very well and have a nostalgic feel.

Sometimes the game does not progress according to the real events and you have problems. The story of Road 96 is sometimes very convoluted. For example, in one of the situations, you may decide to hide in the fuel tank of a truck to cross the border so that the border patrol does not arrest you. If your health bar is high enough to hold your breath, you can survive. But the next day, newspapers publish the news of the arrest of a teenager hiding in a fuel tank. This discrepancy between the story and the reality is a bit annoying. Of course, this part as one of the bugs in the game does not happen very often and can be ignored.

Road 96 video game is an action and adventure game produced in 2021. This game tells the story of young characters who are from a green and beautiful country called Petria. During the 1996 dictatorship, they are trying their best to get out of the country, and you have to get these young people out of the country safely, along with energy conservation and resource management. Some people believe that the idea of the game is very creative and new, but its implementation does not touch the heart. However, if you are interested in adventure style games, Road 96 video game can be a suitable and attractive option for you.
