Sometimes you really want to give a game the benefit of the doubt. Created by the same company behind Syberia, this game is certainly style over substance, The presentation is certainly pleasing, with nice visuals, voice acting and music but the core of the game is lacklustre. Some puzzles lack any hint on how to complete them, and your left randomly trying things untill you eventually get the right answer.
The main gripe however, must be directed at the story. If you have read the orignal Nikopol graphic novel, or have seen the movie based on it, then youll probably be ok here. If you havnt however, then you will be lost pretty fast in whats going on. There was something going on with your father, Egyptian gods, a floating pyramid and giant jellyfish.
Answers on a postcard, avoid.
