I've been to Easter Island and am now in the underground caverns of Chichen Itza and am finding the game rather gloomy so far. I guess I'm missing all the fantastic and colorful rooms and chambers of ROTS. Of course ROTS was set completely in Egypt, and TOS visits many locations, most of which I haven't seen yet. I just hope it gets a little more lively as it goes along.

The Chitzen Itza area as well as every location in the game is very realistic - that is what you do find when you're out spelunking in caves and digging in archeological sites. These are what an archeologist would find. You are playing an archeologist. The graphics are wonderful and are true to scientific papers. The details of the glyphs on the walls and murals are well researched.

Maybe we can find a disco at the inner chamber and have some dancing to go with Laura's drinks and hotdogs.

I share your sentiments exactly, Sumac. So far I'm finding the game very drab and for the most part...uninteresting. I suspect the fault lies largely within myself, though...as I never found archeology and the study of ancient civilizations all that exciting.

I was hoping this game might exceed my expectations and spark a new interest for me, but so far that hasn't been the case. At this point, I'm mostly impatient to get out of these dark drab caves and into some more colorful scenery. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Confused]" src="confused.gif" />

I suspect I'll eventually change my opinion of the game...if I ever get out of this depressing atmosphere. lol

True, Mag, but I'll betcha an archaelogist would be carrying a flashlight!!! lol I'm going to try and carry on, I just went to ask a question. Thanks you guys... I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. There better be a HUGE payoff!! wink

I'm sorry, but my idea of adventure is EXPERIENCING it... not FEELING AROUND for it. Why these people would waste all their time putting together a game that is so dark, you might as well click your mouse on your monitor that's been turned off, is beyond me. What were they thinking???? This is not my idea of fun. I can only say, if you want to waste $30.00, be my guest, but you've been warned. I've waited so long... and for THIS!! From now on, if it doesn't say "Nancy Drew" or "Cameron Files"... I'm not wasting my money on it. Why are these games so [blip] dark nowadays? Do they think gamers are vampires? No, wait... Dracula wasn't this dark!!! frown
I got the game a couple of days ago and i MUST agree with you, the game is way to dark...

Finished it last night. While I can agree to some extent with the complaints I thought it was a great game. I think it might have been the hardest game in memory. And the graphics in the Celtic compound were absolutely gorgeous. That section really sucked me in.

It sounds like this game really needs to be played with a video card that can allow you to boost the gamma. However I had to turn up brightness on my monitor more for Mystery of the Mummy than I did for Omega Stone. I've only played Omega Stone with the patch, however.

Hopefully the next game in the series will have an in-game gamma control, the way Timelapse did.

I really enjoyed Omega Stone, though it was awfully grim in spots. So many skulls! I hope the next one will be brighter, though I think the authenic feeling of being in an archeological dig is massively cool!
