  1. Not many developers would take the time and energy needed to recreate these famous sites with the care and attention that they require or conduct the many hours of research that this game calls for. Not many games can claim to give you the feeling of actually being there.
  2. The blurry graphics and amateur acting detract from what is otherwise a very immersive gaming experience, but seasoned adventure gamers should still find a lot to explore and discover in this latest offering from The Adventure Company.
  3. The game was obviously made by people who love the subject matter, and that affection comes across in every element.
  4. The generally high production values combined with the unending series of coherent brain-stretching enigmas make this worth a serious look.
  5. 65
    The difficulty of the game's puzzles (aggravated by a poor interface), combined with tedious mazes and trudging back and forth through emptiness killed my enjoyment of the game.
  6. An exciting puzzle game, and the ending creatively explains the link between the locales you've visited. Despite Stone's imperfections, this nicely improved sequel is worth digging up. [Aug 2003, p.86]
  7. Simply stated, TOS is a mediocre puzzle game at best. It really is a shame because the designers came so close to crafting a game that would forever reside on your shelf with the classics.

    Running back and forth became tedious. The patch worked fine for a partial install. Overall story and puzzles okay - I would have liked more humour.

    I find the game frustrating, with game crashing, items in inventory multiplying or disappearing, magnifying glass stops working. Even though i downloaded the patch, and did a full install of the game. Not a user friendly game at all! Expand

    Looks and sounds good (before you play it) controls suck. Included instructions don't even suck - they don't exist (unless all you want to know is how to install the game) You don't have a clue or a goal. If you had a good interface, it might be fun to play with, but you don't so it isn't. If you buy this game - trade it for three peanuts, you'll get no more. Expand
