  1. As for me, I had a surprisingly good time helping Maya struggle to bring all of the events back into the bosom of the benevolent gods. Tight story, excellent puzzles, attractive graphics -- what else could we grouchy adventure game players ask for?
  2. I gave every category about 80% in my scoring, and that sums up The Egyptian Prophecy pretty well. Nothing about it is amazing, but nothing about it is bad, either.
  3. It's very short, and can be beaten in a matter of hours, but at $20, it's an excellent buy as it is inspired, and engaging. [Aug 2004, p.70]
  4. A gripping storyline and entertaining puzzles that do not frustrate combine to help create a compelling adventure game.
  5. The visuals are stunning, the history is accurate and the dialogue is good.
  6. With a decent story, authentic backdrop, intriguing personalities and classic puzzles, there’s a lot to like here.

    As things stand, unless you go rabid for Egypt or tired old adventure games then I would advise you pass up on this time travelling opportunity.

    This game is dumb. A good game is entertaining. Graphics, sound, and pretty things don't make a game, they make a movie, and that means This game is dumb. A good game is entertaining. Graphics, sound, and pretty things don't make a game, they make a movie, and that means this isn't a game then, and hence my score. Expand
