  • Summary: Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy is set in 16th century Provence, in a country ravaged by religious wars and devastated by the plague.

It has been three years since Catherine de Médicis' rule as regent came to an end, but she still holds the reins of power, making her the target of repeated attacks from the French nobility. One day in March 1566, when she realises that she has fallen victim to a terrible curse, she turns to her doctor and astrologer, Michel de Nostre-Dame, better known as Nostradamus. Unfortunately, the famous prophet is too old and weak to take on such a mission alone. Refusing to abandon his queen in her hour of need, he sends his daughter Madeleine in his place. However, there is no such thing as women astrologers, let alone women doctors in medieval times. To be accepted as such, the young woman must go in disguise and assume her younger brother's identity, César, who is away for some time. Alternating between Madeleine the young woman and Madeleine disguised as César, players are plunged into a thriller where political scheming and ancestral prophecies are intertwined. The game begins as an initiatory adventure in the footsteps of her father, the prophet and astrologer, before creating all the suspense of a detective novel: from one murder to another, players make their way through a test-riddled forensic investigation.

  1. But if you’re the type of gamer who enjoys a good, logical mystery within a solid historical framework, I predict you’ll have hours of enjoyment with Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy.
  2. Throughout that time I was both pleased and impressed, as Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy is a solid game with an intriguing story and fun, well-integrated puzzles.

    You will learn at least a little about astrology by playing this game. If that doesn't interest you, you may be annoyed, but then you are probably not the type inclined to pick up Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy in the first place.
  4. For fans of the genre who love to have their brain teased as well as hung up for hours however, this is to be expected, and you could do much worse than what the developers of this game have come up with here; a genuinely challenging, if a bit inclusive adventure.
  5. Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy does do some things right in terms of the graphics and sound quality. The overall concept isn’t that bad either, but some of the finer points such as the tasks that need completed could’ve definitely been dulled down a bit. This game is, however, an absolute must for any astrology buff!

    Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy is enjoyable but flawed; it's too short, with little reason to play it again (beyond seeking a higher score), the game world isn't lively or well populated enough to be convincing and the puzzles are of mixed quality, making it a pretty standard point-and-click game.
  7. The Last Prophecy? I bloody well hope so.

    Excellent point and click adventure.. The new interface is a treat and the transitions are quick and seamless. Loading times are fast. TheExcellent point and click adventure.. The new interface is a treat and the transitions are quick and seamless. Loading times are fast. The story is wonderful along with the voices and music. Very polished. A little short but well done. For people who remember that almost all adventure games were once point and click ie myst series and others will enjpy it completely. Puzzles are not so tough to drive you crazy.. A must for Adventure gamers..Enjoy.. Expand

I found myself mixing herbs and cooking during this whole SHORT adventure. There are no real traps anywhere and you can wander around forever bored trying to figure out what you missed. The game does not reference Michele deNostradame's written work of prophecy at all. Expand
