Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual

Game Vortex

  • Excerpt: Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual is a mixed bag that could leave hardcore adventure gamers cold, but less experienced ones with a nice challenge ahead of them. Story and puzzles aside (we will get to those later), The Scorpio Ritual looks great. The game's pre-rendered backdrops have just the right hint of animation to make the game feel more dynamic than it really is, and Sylvie Leroux's and other characters' movements are nice and fluid.

  • Excerpt: It's been a while since adventure gamers had some good, serious games to enjoy. For a while we had a nice revival in the form of the Syberia games and the Longest Journey series, but aside from that, good adventure games that aren't also comedies are hard to come by. It's with a sense of pleasure then, that I recommend Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual.

Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual Review

  • Conclusion: without giving things away. It’s not to say there aren’t some strange solutions, but any seasoned adventuring type will be pleased that most of these are fairly tame and land less on the side of plain bizarre. The voice over work is good as Sylvie remarks about each and every object you click on. Useful objects automatically get added to your inventory, and just as slick they disappear when they are no longer useful.

  • Conclusion: Me, I don’t mind the occasional nice, easy adventure. And ultimately I think that’s a fitting description of the game as a whole: nice and easy. Pleasant while it lasts, but very, very short. While The Scorpio Ritual doesn't overtly hint at a sequel, there are certainly plenty of story opportunities left to explore, and I for one hope we’ll get to see Sylvie again in a longer adventure.

Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual

Adventure Classic Gaming
17 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Originally titled Testament of Sin, City Interactive's Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual is a high quality point-and-click adventure game that all fans of the genre will likely enjoy. The story is good, the graphics are great, and the characters are fun. The only gripe is that the game ends rather abruptly, making it feel more like an episode or a prologue than an epic adventure.
