    ER does manage to capture the spirit of the TV show. If you are looking for a casual sim game or if you are a fan of the show, consider giving ER a chance. There is plenty of material here to interest you.

    The journey, however, can be fun if the meticulous style of information parsing doesn’t turn you off.

    Other than the “save” issue, I found this to be a very professionally produced and enjoyable game. If you enjoy puzzles, this game is for you, and given the relatively low MSRP, there’s a lot of bang for the buck.

    If you're of a mind to revisit this singular game, having it in handheld form can be a fun way of re-experiencing it on the go. If you're all Myst-ed out, this port probably won't change your attitude.

    Murder in the Abbey is a classically-structured third-person adventure game with an intriguing setting, a strong story, quality music, and generally excellent graphical presentation. Unfortunately, it’s also got problems that undermine whatever potential fun there is to be had.

    I should also mention that Adam's Venture is intended to be the first in a series of games. Hopefully, the other characters will get more to do in future games.

    One big graphical and phonetic experience. If you like to solve logic-based puzzles and didn’t play hooky during your math lessons then this game really is a must. But be aware; besides your own calculation skills, this game requires quite some capacity from your computer and video card as well.

    But if what you’re after is a good twisted mystery and a game that will creep you out, in deeper ways and beyond “boo, I jumped out of the closet”, then you should consider checking-out RoR.

    You do eventually play as both the brothers and also their mysterious helper, but it is not a matter of choice as the game forces you into situations. There are also some timed puzzles and circumstances that can cause your capture and in one case even death, but fear not for the game is forgiving and you will automatically return to the point before the deadly mistake.

    Cards of Destiny, if you can ignore what the characters are yammering on about, provides a decent ten to fifteen hours of adventuring, and the usual dosage of nice eye candy, but it's a step backwards from City's last AG effort, Tree of Life.

    Gameplay is linear, but refreshing in its use of locales and inventory. It is on the easy side so there is little frustration in playing.

    Possibly the least original shooter released this year. The enemy AI is standard but effective, the guns are big and beefy and it's basically a case of running around and pulling the trigger.

    As an X-Files game - directed to fans of the show - it should receive an ‘A’ as it features everything an X-Files episode would and the player gets to participate.

    Like a breath of fresh air in the survival horror world. Although its gameplay is a direct copy of CT3, it is still something that hasn’t been seen much.

    Still uses the same sucky navigation system/interface. No real surprise. Ubisoft was obviously trying to recoup their expenses from Uru Online and didn't want to spend any more time on development then they had to.

    Imagine, a game that played like Gabriel Knight, but set in the world of "The X-Files."

    Its downsides lie on elements key to an adventure game and cannot be overlooked. Overall though, even though the style will not be everyone’s cup of tea, Frogwares has managed to prove that they can take the genre to new levels and build it around new technology without a need to hybridize it with other genres, and in my book that is highly commendable.

    Sherlock Holmes versus Jack the Ripper is a well constructed adventure, but the necessary linearity and dependence on following a pre-established timeline do hinder the overall effect of the game and rob it of much of its suspense.

    Although the engine and interface are quite antiquated and there’s no innovation here; for you Myst and Riven fans, I’d like to stress the positives. There are unbelievable opportunities for exploration. The game is truly gigantic. The many puzzles are varied and very challenging.

    There’s nothing really intellectually stimulating, the 2D graphic novel-style graphics leave things to be desired, and the concept tires quickly.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    A game that has major highs – the plot, the graphics, the soundtrack - and major lows – the arcade sequences, twisty jungle mazes, lame dialogue and timed events.

    The bonus crap isn’t worth it, unless you want to see a character through stages of weight loss or areas with Martha Stewart remodeling before they were added into the game.

    An okay game, marred mainly by its repetitiveness.

    Overall, I found Curse of the Ancient Temple to be somewhat easy, but novice or younger gamers should find it challenging.

    An occasionally amusing game that can at times be involving.

    Art of Murder gives it a decent try but doesn’t quite rise to the challenge. Poor Agent Bonnet has beauty but not brains.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 58 Critic Score
    There are simply too many characters to remember, too many quests to keep track of and too many different devices and combat moves to simply remember them all.

    An RTS with a couple of interesting variations. It is written in a religious setting, but is not preachy nor does it condone violence against the heathens. If anything, it discourages violence and intolerance. The game was just too complicated for me to enjoy. But, to be fair, I am an Old Fart and the game was written for the young, gamers crowd.

    Jack Keane is an admirable effort which is compromised by a half-assed and inconsistent focus on the quality of the various game elements.

    Compared to the lush screens, smooth animations and high-quality musical scores of the PC versions, MillionHeir feels more repetitive, and the gameplay simply wears out its welcome more quickly.
