I'm not sure too many ppl bought this game. I've been waiting to find out if it was worth buying but haven't heard yet.

I played Riddle of the Sphinx a looooooooong time ago and couldn't wait for this sequel so bought it as soon as it appeared on cd's !!! yes it is VERY long and well worth the money if you love mental work outs. I must say the puzzles WERE harder in this one and we used hints a lot, (although with all the walkthroughs available now anyone can do this !!! we just got hints and worked it out) but the graphics are excellent and the sounds and music are excellent.

I just love these type of games anyway, lol many people dont because they require a lot of thinking and coming and going.

I dont remember too much of the detail as it was a year or 3 ago that I played it, but it is a must for hard core adventure fans !!!

Explore and enjoy and do Riddle of the Sphinx too coz that was even better. !!!

i bought it because of the video, it looked like a great game. i'm still wandering around the Sphinx, i'm not able to manipulate anything and haven't found any puzzles/traps yet to work on! even inside on that stone at the end of the crawlspace from the Ark. is there a walk-through with hints only yet, i wonder?

I couldn't tell what type of game it was... puzzles? what? Is it like the old game 7th Guest- that sort of thing? I haven't played one of those in ages. Frankly, I didn't think they made games like that anymore.

What you'll either love or hate about the game is that it is really free roaming. If you like a linear game where you work though one location before the next one is opened up then maybe this game isn't for you. There is a lot of exploring to do before you get a picture of what is going on.
For hints try the Universal Hint System site. Rather than laying out what you need to do in a walkthrough this site let's you choose how much information to reveal so you can get a nudge in the right direction or a step by step answer to a puzzle.

Oh, and as has been said on this forum before SAVE, SAVE, SAVE. You can die easily and frequently!

Just downloaded it and am completely baffled as to what I'm supposed to be looking for. I have no idea what I should be taking of and why. I can move around fine, but when you try to play a game w/o a clue to what to look for, what to find, it gets frustrating as heck. That's the state I'm in right now. If you can't play the game, it's not fun. So I'll probably uninstall it.

Yep it looked good, large yes, can I do any thing, no, Do I have to go through that long pro log each time I open it to see if I am a bit smarter, operantly, am I happy with it NO. Will it stay in my computer, most likely not.
Small wonder there is no play before buy. LESSON LEARNED!!!!

I really don't like this game because it has alot of errors.I saved often because it will go off and you have to restart.It is a hard game but I don't mine that. but seems to have trouble in install.

I am a die hard adventure large file gamer. Those who do not know what to expect on a large file games get totally frustrated and think it is horrible. This is a very difficult LF game not for the unitiated. It was not my favorite plus I had computer issues with it, a bug in one of the first puzzles, I also do not care for LF games where I can die every 5 minutes. But that is just me. The puzzles in this are not very clear and real stinkers so you really need to be smart. For some this is gaming heaven like I said not my favorite. If not for the glitch I would have played it through anyway using a walkthrough when I got stuck and save, save, save.
