One of the best looking point 'n' click adventures ever made, but the unique visuals don't compensate for illogical puzzles and a weak script.
Sci-fi adventure set in ’60s Germany is a beautiful, artsy letdown
Trüberbrook isn’t bad, but it feels like a wedding cake with a couple of tiers missing. Beautiful icing, great craftsmanship on show, but somehow not all there.
The story of Trüberbrook has an intriguing concept. However, it is resolved too quickly and lacks an impactful revelation that it was seemingly building to. Nevertheless, the voice acting and visuals alone have left me so impressed they eventually became the reasons I continued through the adventure.
Truberbrook is a very average, obsolete adventure, which by all parameters, except graphics, is inferior to the last Leisure Suit Larry game.

Overall, Trüberbrook is a very special and quirky game that most people are going to love.
With sumptuous hand-crafted visuals and a throwback LucasArts approach to puzzle-adventure gaming, Trüberbook is a treat for genre fans. Well, in part anyway. It's a pity that all the goodwill the game generates is drained by an unsatisfying story that doesn't bother to answer even half of the questions it's raised.
If you’re a fan of the genre, appreciate fine artwork and want to experience a fairly interesting story, Trüberbrook is worth a look, just go in with expectations in check.
This game has a few sizable issues that hold it back from greatness. But for genre fans, Trüberbrook succeeds thanks to its sci-fi plot, quirky voice-acted characters, and exceptional aesthetics.
If you enjoyed the Kings Quest games and similar titles, you will enjoy Trüberbrook. Hands down, this is a surprising slam dunk. It's a great story, with twists, humour, problem solving, adventure and mystery. There is also a choice you make at the end, which I suspect provides two endings, so it's likely to warrant a second play through for this, but you would want to wait a bit between, to appreciate it again.
The handmade game scene is impressive, and the background settings of this game are attractive as well. But the story is not good enough, and the puzzles are lacking of creation and fun.

If you don't mind some wonky voice-acting, there's plenty of charm to be found in Trüberbrook's engrossing and rustic sci-fi tale.
Unless you're a die-hard point and click aficionado, it's difficult to recommend this adventure. One thing is for certain though: It's not worth its RRP of £24.99.
If you can overlook these problems, Trüberbrook offers up fun moments all the way through.
Trüberbrook is the kind of game that is entwined with art. The visuals are mesmerizing, stunning and beautiful and the overall atmosphere is very likable and unique. Although the game is not perfect at all and there are numbers of narrative and gameplay issues, it's definitely worth the money you'll spend on it.

Truberbrook is definitely the best looking adventure game to date, and thanks to its wonderful music and sound design, it is a great choice for fans of the genre. That said, issues in story-telling and some weird puzzles prevent it from becoming a new benchmark for adventure games.

Trüberbrook was, undoubtedly, a labour of love for its developers.
Truberbrook has a few faults, but its engaging characters, enjoyable narrative, and fantastic atmosphere make it easy to recommend.
I wanted to enjoy Trüberbrook but mediocre frustrating gameplay can only be helped so much by amazing art.
