Summary: i searched for a digital copy from this game, for weeks. then i finally found it on gamefly. after that, my Ankh trilogy was complete and i started to play it. now i can say that this searching for the first Ankh game was no waste of time or money! Yes, graphics are may be not very smooth...but i like that old skool look. dialogue and characters are funny. voice acting is good in english . and i just love that ancient-egypt scenery.
Summary: I had posted the review for two here earlier and decided to correct them. I will not elaborate here but you are welcome to read the review I have for the Ankh 2 game. They are similar. I am just itching to play the game. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and came back to buy just that. I realized they had 2 and 3 and I bought both but can't play it yet. I was directed by Amazon to the creators and I am currently waiting for help.
Summary: I ordered this game pack based on recommendations. The games are very hard to load, but they are worth it. Once I got a local computer guru to help me and could play them, the games are a lot of fun. I look forward to many hours of enjoyment.
Summary: Because I loved Ankh 1 and I don't do downloaded games I ordered this. It's a good deal/price. Re the Heart of Osiris, I'm glad I played it but it's nothing compared to Ankh 1. I was so disappointed that the cute opening song and ending animation were not there at all, the music played only once during the credits but NO ANIMATIONS, just music once. Game used up time and space by running you back and forth across many,many screens a good deal.
Summary: Ever come across games that do NOT want to play with you ? Ankh is one of them. And it is more stubborn than most ! After a cartoony Intro, featuring silly-loking characters, that cannot be skipped, uninteresting dialogs take over, which can be skipped (thank Isis !). Scene #1.The Camel Wash. Don't think you're gonna wash a camel, no ! Instead, armed with a broom, it's cleaning time for you. That means removing 20 animals provided you can FIND them !
Summary: After playing only 20 minutes of the free trial, I was still on the first screen and knew this game was not for me. The objects are extremely small and I found some of them simply by random clicking. I like games that are challenging, but not frustrating. The characters are just silly and the graphics only average. Won't even finish the trial.
Summary: If you liked any of the Monkey Island games than you will like this one. Most puzzles are logical, the Osiris temple not so much. I am only 1/3 to 1/2 the way thru it but it is fun and the graphics are pleasing.
Summary: I only played the german version of this game, which is the original, so I can't say anything about the quality of the translations or speakers. But what I can say is that the german version is a very very good game! It really reminds me of the good old Lucas Arts adventures that we all love so much, because it has a similar style, great gags, logical riddles and VERY good speakers t hat fit to the characters, which create a very convenient atmosphere.
