  1. Great fun while it lasts, though the developers need to deliver a few more of their promised episodes to quell my fears that this will be a story that remains unfinished.
  2. AGON: The Mysterious Codex remains a work in progress, and based on the chapters released so far there could be 100 hours or so of gaming still to come. Whether it can sustain itself for that length of time remains to be seen, but on the strength of this first part I will certainly go along for the next part of the journey of Samuel Hunt.
  3. Perhaps the Codex will finally bring an unheralded series the attention it deserves. There's no new content, but those unfamiliar with the series should definitely give this release a closer look.
  4. Viva Media's first release in the series is a good value and will certainly get you started on the path to adventure, but for those wanting to start off slow you can also buy and download each episode separately directly from Private Moon. Either way, the first chapters in this 14 episode adventure series are pretty solid and entertaining.
  5. PC Gamer
    While AGON is deep, with subtle clues and intricate puzzles, the story often drags, and seems little more than a preamble to the board games--which aren't that scintillating themselves. [July 2006, p.99]
  6. PC Gamer UK
    The game doesn't make note of important discoveries. [Nov 2006, p.98]
  7. A huge disappointment. The board games provided are enjoyable, but the journey to each one is ultimately not even worth it.
