Summary: I had the pleasure of being lucky enough to play the demo twice, as my BFG manager missed that I had already played it for one hour. I'm glad it had that glitch, because the second time around, I found the characters very annoying, and the game frustrated the heck out of me after the first 30 minutes. Got tired of backtracking. No hidden object scenes really, and I always seemed to be short one fragment piece on most of my items in inventory.
Summary: To my surprise I thought this game was pretty good. It remained faithful to the Egyptian theme and gave the player the chance to fully explore the tombs & pyramids. It stuck to it (unlike some other HOG who kept changing to different locations of different cultures/themes) so it felt kind of coherent and complete. Yes the graphics wasn't the best and most scenes looked dull, there was nothing to complain because it reflected the sandy dry dusty arid nature of the scenes.
Summary: Franchement un très bon jeu pc avec de bonnes énigmes, un beau graphisme mais on reste sur sa fin. Je me demandais lorsque j'ai vu le mot "fin" à l'écran si j'avais eu la version complète. Quel dommage car c'est vraiment le style de jeu que j'aime.
Summary: I liked the way the game looked and hint charged pretty fast. Now for the bad; way to short -finished in about 1- 1 1/2 hours and the story does not explain much. Why was the dad and daughter in the picture? Why are they thre in the first place? So on and so forth. They really could have told more on the story. The begining started strong with a bad ending.
Summary: This game reminded me of an inferior Escape the Museum type game. The children were annoying and it's never really explained why the family is there in the first place. The puzzles are ok, but making sure you find everything before you leave a room so you don't have to backtrack is really tedious, especially when you can't figure out which way to go and the map is very confusing. And Spoiler! why is the little girl and the dad in the painting?
Summary: First let me say I didn't have a pair of 3D glasses to wear while I played this. I can't really tell if that would have made ELK a transporting experience, so for now I'll just say that I enjoyed playing it, though it didn't bowl me over. The details: it starts with a story, and ends with a bit of a story, but there's not much story in between. Something about a pharaoh and his pyramid.
Summary: I really enjoyed the game, but I wish it had been longer. It only took me about 2-2 1/2 hours to finish. I enjoy this type of game where you have to move around to find objects that will be used in other locations. I also like Egyptian settings for games. I played the 3D version. It was neat, but you're not missing out if you don't. Some of the cut scenes look cool, but I actually thought it made it more difficult in the few HOG scenes that used the 3D.
Summary: I can only give this 3 stars as it only took me 2 1/2 hours to complete it (no skips, no hints) so big thumbs down for that. I don't have 3-D glasses lying around, so I can't attest to the good effects of that aspect. Otherwise, the puzzles were great, characters were ok, and great graphics. This really needed another couple of chapters...
Summary: I did enjoy this game, but wish it had been longer. I love HOG and Adventure combined games, and this was a pretty good one. It is good for replay since you can start with a different character each time, so it changes the game somewhat. I love games of looking for relics, escape from somewhere, and the haunting games. This was not the best, absolutely loved Dead Time Stories, but this was a decent game and I would give it a 3 1/2 to 4.
