    Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths does nothing special, but it's — for the most part — a well constructed and enjoyable adventure.

    Just because the main selling point of a console isn't utilised, doesn't make a game flawed.

    Whilst the title does sadly feel a bit too simple, Secret Paths possesses a lot of charm and tries to offer a range of challenges for all levels of skill. In the end it skews a little young overall, but that age group will also probably be more forgiving of the repetitive nature of the puzzles throughout the game.

    The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths is yet another example of an entertaining game based on a popular television series…entertaining, but flawed, as it does not make proper use of the 3DS, starting with the lack of a 3D mode, added to an overall feeling of repetitiveness. Still, it’s an effort that can be enjoyed by fans of the series, but not a trailblazing or groundbreaking piece of work.

    Esteban and the Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Worlds is a puzzle game that begins pretty well but gets worse very quickly due to a strong repetition, a confusing plot and a very low difficulty level. Technically it would not even be bad and the fans of the original TV series will appreciate the animated cut-scenes, but the rest of the game (including the weak stealth sections) is not so good.
