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..
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.
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.
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!
Summary: Graphics aren't too bad which is the only positive thing I can say about this game. Far too much wandering about from place to place and heaps of unnecessary dialogue. Hardly enough puzzles and those present, would not jangle the little gray cells of an ant.
Summary: this is actually a really good game, for the money its much better than many others around at the moment and it has a real sense of humour. One complaint- lots of walking around from location to location REPEATEDLY gets bit boring, but im prepared to forgive that. Buy it!
Summary: I wander what age group this is aimed at. Could be a good game for a kid. The dialoge is so bad that it put me off straight away. The graphics are OK but that is the best I can say about it. I have had a few go's but have decided that life is to short to bother with it.
Summary: I have seen some rather poor reviews of this game, and was not expecting much. I was however pleasantly surprised. Gamers looking for extremely complex puzzles, and difficult scenarios, can forget this game. It is simple an old fashioned point and click adventure with a not too difficult storyline.
VERY polished point and click, but not revolutionary

Summary: 'Ankh' is one of those very few games that are hard not to be pleased with so long as you don't ask for a revolutionary gaming experience. Ancient Egypt, Azil has smashed a number of priceless vases belonging to a mummified Pharaoh and has been given a death-curse that could send him to the next...
