  1. Curse of Atlantis provides some good, old-fashioned point and click with a solid story and voice work.
  2. Entertaining while it lasts, but not innovative in gameplay or storyline.
  3. Your typical adventure game that strives to pay tribute to the classics of the early 90’s. While I found a non-FPS adventure refreshing I felt this one could have been a bit better.
  4. In a short period of time I realized that the problems with hidden objects, irritating action sequences, and extremely brief gameplay keep this title from getting anywhere near its potential.
  5. If it had given you a bit more to do, the game would be a simple and somewhat straightforward adventure game, but as it is, it's simply too short.
  6. Curse of Atlantis: Thorgal's Quest took about 10 hours and was not unenjoyable, but nor did it reach any great heights.

The graphics aren't as good as the first 3 Atlantis games & it's done by a different publisher. And instead of it being a puzzle adventure game, it's an action adventure game. I'm stuck in some horrible scene where I have to shoot down 3 sandbags & it doesn't give you enough time to get the job done AND your mouse doesn't move smoothly enough and I've slowed down the graphics acceleration, but, it's not making a bit of difference. So far, I hate this game! I was absolutely in love with the first 2 and the 3rd one had good puzzles, but, was virtually plotless. Expand

    The graphics are very lousy, Thorgal is only a walking shadow,and objects are invisible. I'm really dissapointed with this game.
