I, being a fan of LucasArts adventure games, such as Maniac Mansion, Indiana Jones, and Full Throttle, welcomed Loom with open arms. In Loom, you must unlock sounds to save the planet or something. This very interesting plot sucked me in. However, the linearity and simpleness of the game have proved to be a major factor in the lack of a positive gameplay experience. For one thing, I played through Loom in a day. I have never beaten a game in one day before, no exceptions. Not only was it too short, but it lacked anything that was standard in games using the SCUMM engine (i.e. Sam and Max, Monkey Island, etc.): the ability to pick up anything. Not only that, but there was little interaction with the environment throughout the game. Also, everything you did was relevant to the plot, which removed the element of exploration common in other games of the genre, such as the Monkey Island series and Day of the Tentacle. The puzzles were too easy, even for a 10 year old. If Loom had been marketed as a stepping stone for little kids who want to learn to play point-and-click adventure games, which it basically is, I could forgive it. Also, it's too short (2 hours) to even be considered a game. On the plus side, I really liked the music. While the music was good and the story was intriguing, Loom is just too short and linear for my tastes. I would recommend it as a time-waster and nothing more.

I loved this game as a kid, but I remember how some of it freaked the living hell out of me. It's going to be SO easy now that I'm older, but nostalgia doesn't need to be anything other than nostalgic.

One of the most atmospheric games ever. BTW, here is the background story that came with the game:

There were 5 Guilds. First, The Glassmakers, a Guild of sheperds, long lost where there abilities but for a few. Second, The Blacksmiths, those who made a Scythe sharp enough to destroy Chaos itself. Third, The Weavers, the ones who crafted reality through the drafts of their distaffs. And finally, the Dead Ones, those who lived on the other end of the Loom.

Lady Cygnus of The Weavers concieved a child through the power of the weaver's Loom, Bobbin Threadbare. She was punished by the elders, a swan not able to set a foot on Loom Island.

Now, one is attempting to use the Weaver's powers to open the very fabric of The Pattern itself.
