Why in the world do they do that? Put timed puzzles in, I mean frown You're playing along with this great game and all of sudden you're stuck for 2 days trying to gather 20 piglets into a small basket and make it through the stone door as it slowly closes. <img border="0" alt="woozy" title="" src="graemlins/woozy.gif" />

I wouldn't have minded the game saving for me. The real aggravation was all those timed sequences and game overs.

GK3, if only it had been FMV instead of crappy 3D.

Emily,

I think that the addition of the action sequences at the end and the rough 3D used definitely could have been scrapped and made me happy. Took what would have been a sure fire A+ game and made it a B.

GK went through so many incarnations in this series. rolleyes One thing that saved the game for me was of course Jane's excellent and meticulously researched plot, the characters and most of the game play. Great updated theme music too.

I agree about Mystery of the Druids.

Hi, all! Hi ya, Andy smile I have to say that GK3 would have been a phenomenal game if it weren't for the whole slew of insidious timed puzzles at the end. The story was excellent, most of the puzzles were fun, the graphics were awesome, but all those timed puzzles one on top of the other at the end really ruined the game for me. There was a point like this in the middle of Cameron Files too and that's why I still haven't finished the game.
