  1. The complete freedom of movement, absorbing storyline, gorgeous graphics, entrancing musical score, and, yes, brain-melting puzzles make this a real treat for your mind and your eye.
  2. Definitely meant for hardcore adventure players, and anyone who has good experience solving puzzles. It offers both an attractive if not overly compelling storyline, great-looking graphics and good (although as I've stated above, very hard) puzzle elements.
  3. The unique story line, tried and true gameplay, and good graphics will please. However non-adventure fans will probably have a problem getting into the game.

    The developers did a great job improving the story in Mysterious Journey II, but I was still left as frustrated with the puzzles as I was in the original.
  5. It's filled with lots of arbitrary, convoluted, brutally tough puzzles, though. In fact, you could say this is really a puzzle game masquerading as an adventure game.
  6. While the game is well designed and looks pretty good, it is incredibly hard and has some performance issues. An adventure game should be challenging, but not require a Ph.D. in astrophysics to beat.
  7. Like a weak and very old dinosaur that's been resurrected only to find that after years of evolution, it's still the weakest leak in the chain, forever destined to be outdone by stronger and sturdier counterparts.
