Excerpt: The Sacred Rings (also known as Aura 2: The Sacred Rings) is an adventure game developed by Streko-Graphics based in Vancouver, Canada. The game is the second title of a planned trilogy for the series that includes Aura: Fate of the Ages and Aura 3: Catharsis.

Conclusion: With its polished presentation, a nice variety of environments to explore, and plenty of puzzles and puzzle variety scattered throughout the game, The Sacred Rings has a decent amount going for it.
