New York, 2000...

...Without knowing how or why, Brian, a student on the verge of graduating from college, is attacked by Mafia gangsters.

During his desperate getaway, in the company of a mysterious striptease dancer, he ends up meeting a wide range of unusual characters. But which ones are trying to help him and which ones are planning to blow his head off?

You will have to be very ingenious to figure it out, without forgetting that nobody is who they seem in this explosive mixture of murder, money, ambition, santería rituals and deception... a whole lot of deception.

 First class point and click adventure

Runaway : A Road Adventure is basically what Broken Sword 3 should have been. This is a really absorbing adventure game with a good storyline, brilliant animation, great voice acting and lavish backgrounds. At certain points through the game your character, Brian Basco, interupts the proceedings and you see him in what looks like a director's chair, telling you a bit more of the story. This is a nice touch. The only downside to the game is the pixel-hunting, however this seems to have been rectified in the sequel. Most mainstream PC games magazines didn't even bother covering this game. If they had, you'd have invariably read "nice attempt but it's no Monkey Island". Ignore the nay sayers, the adventure game is far from dead, it's just suffering from mass prejudice against it. If you want a relaxing game playing experience with a satisfying conclusion, go for this title.

Difficult to write a review about this game...the story is very nice and the graphics and sounds too, but the main downside is that the interface is not as good as the rest, so you can miss something just because this stupid pointer was developed in this way.
It is to mention that some puzzles are not easy and beginners could have some problems in solving them.
