Chronicles of Mystery: Curse of the Ancient Temple (Nintendo DS) Review

Cubed³
29 December 2010

Dan Brown-like mystery solved through puzzles and pointing.

Common Sense Media
19 September 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this puzzle-based mystery game is centered around a tangled conspiracy plot where the villains are a scheming sect of the Catholic Church. In that respect, it's much akin to The Da Vinci Code . The Catholic Church is never mentioned by name, but the Vatican is -- and the lost artifact that people are willing to kill over dates back to the Crusades, which are discussed often in the game.

Chronicles of Mystery: Curse of the Ancient Temple review (DS)

7 December 2009
  • Excerpt: An undeveloped plot is this title's catastrophic failing. A casual game like this, without providing much challenge or variety in its gameplay, has to tell a compelling story.

Chronicles of Mystery: Der Fluch des alten Tempels Review

Nintendo-Online
28 November 2013
  • Summary: Die Temperaturen werden kühler und die Menschen ziehen sich in die Wärme der eigenen vier Wände zurück. Was könnte es da Schöneres geben, als sich auf das Sofa zu kuscheln und eine Runde mit dem Nintendo DS zu spielen? Für die ruhigen Stunden veröffentlicht Ubisoft nun . Das Adventure verspricht eine spannende Geschichte mit überraschenden Wendungen und kniffligen Rätseln. In letzter Zeit wurde den Spielern das allerdings von massenhaft Spielen versprochen.

Chronicles of Mystery: Der Fluch des alten Tempels

Nintendofans.de
8 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Obwohl das Spiel sehr kurz ist, bietet „Chronicles of Mystery: Fluch des alten Tempels“ einiges an Spielspaß. Trotzdem erwartet man sich von einem 30 Euro Spiel mehr, als 2 Stunden Spielzeit, keine Sprachausgabe, durchschnittliche Unterhaltung und niedrigem Schwierigkeitsgrad. Auch die Gesamtpräsentation ist eher mittelmäßig. Die Story ist zwar gut gelungen, braucht aber etwas an Zeit, bis diese wirklich in Schwung kommt.
  • Pros: anspruchsvolle Suchbilder, hübsch gezeichnete Bildausschnitte, leichte Steuerung
  • Cons: viel zu simples Spielniveau, schwache Gesamtpräsentation, viel zu kurze Spielzeit
