  1. If you like ancient Egypt, challenging puzzles with actual clues, and first-person exploration of fascinating environments, “Riddle of the Sphinx” is for you.
  2. The combination of an unsolved mystery, great music, a desolate ancient landscape and captivating underground chambers creates a truly immersive experience.
  3. For the adventure purist, Riddle of the Sphinx is an intriguing journey that should not be missed. For those who do not typically enjoy lonely exploration, this game may still be a trip worth taking for the sake of learning and experiencing a bit of the Toblers' Egypt.
  4. Makes up for its technical shortcomings with a great location and an impressive amount of detail.
  5. Exploring the pyramid is truly fascinating - both the 'real' structure consisting of unadorned claustrophobic passageways, and the 'imagined' secret chambers with their carvings and paintings fit for a Pharaoh.
  6. Riddle of the Sphinx's immersive storyline, hearty exploration sequences and challenging puzzles make this three-CD set an enjoyable--albeit somewhat taxing--experience for the seasoned adventurer looking for a value-priced fix.
  7. 53
    While solving puzzles in the rather mundane Riddle of the Sphinx isn't necessarily a tedious chore, finding them in the first place is more than half the battle.
