Summary: After finishing COM: Tree of Life, I had to go back and play this one. I was not disappointed in the least and had no glitches or technical problems. The story comes alive through the visually stunning details of the scenes. My favorite was outside of the temple surrounded by the sea...unbelievably realistic. Yes, characters were at times a bit off in form, but it didn't take away from the story.
Summary: Beautiful graphics, pleasing music, and moderately interesting story. Occasionally frustrating because of back-tracking frequently, and relatively few sites explored. That and the abrupt, unsatisfying ending bring this to 4 stars instead of 5. However it's still a worthwhile adventure game without excessive hand-holding or difficulty. I bought it with no regrets.
Summary: Intriguing game which I think has been overlooked by a lot of the gaming community. Just finished this game and it was most enjoyable, intriguing and challenging. Finally, a game whose story line makes sense, is worth keeping up with and an ending that surprises you. May be a tad slow in the start of the game to capture one's interest, but the pace picks up as does the intensity of this game. I recommend it; it's a nice diversion from the mundane ones I've seen lately.
