  1. Gameplay lurches between the exultation of easy victory and the frustration of arbitrary defeat after hours of effort. Enigma: Rising Tide's slowness of movement and action only throws its pleasures and miseries into sharp relief.
  2. The best of its genre, which isn't saying a lot to be honest, but it will definitely appeal if this is the kind of thing you enjoy. Unfortunately, Enigma's niche appeal doesn't make it a particularly attractive proposition to anyone else.

It was overall fun for a bit, but there weren't enough missions to do. I didn't really like the game. Despite being fun, there are real drawbacks in actually defeating an enemy and how helpful your allies are (Which is incredibly critical given how many enemies you may have to defeat). Full Review »

The speech recognition makes it truly the best. I'm aware of some folks having issues with running it but from the forums I've read there is no reason you shouldn't be up and running in no time. Very, very cool. I'm anxious for Tesseraction's next Enigma version. Started Sept. 07. Full Review »

I did buy this game off the cheap rack at EB GAmes but still be nice if it bloody well worked. Full Review »
