  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 Omega Stone is an imaginative tale that is more ambitious than its predecessor and manages to weave into the story a shadowy brotherhood that seems to have links to the Templars, and hints at further ambiguous, if not sinister motives.
  3. The game was obviously made by people who love the subject matter, and that affection comes across in every element.
  4. 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.

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. Full Review »

    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.

Even though 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! Full Review »
