I just got this game, and yes! I have read all the bad things people say about it, but I didn't find a review here and we all know Boomers know best! Tell me what I'm in for okay? I know there is a small screen but that's about it...!??! I'm gonna start tomorrow, please forwarn me! laugh

bravo I liked it!! I played it several summers ago and when I think back on it, it brings nice memories. You don't need to be Einstein to get through it and if you like a nice little mystery and don't mind less than Academy-award-winning acting performances, this one's for you. thumbsup

The story is good.
The acting is decent.
There's a Rube Goldberg type puzzle that some people don't like at all, though I liked it.

There seems to be a bug with the puzzles in the museum shop. People have reported that if they solve the jigsaw puzzles in the wrong order, a game trigger doesn't work and they get a dead end.

I thought some of the puzzles were pretty difficult and had to consult a walkthrough. If I hadn't, I don't think I'd ever have gotten them.

The viewing window is small.
The navigation system is terrible. There were two ways you could move forward. Skipping the transition video also skipped some of the exits. But the transition video had such terrible sideways jerking that I got the worst motion sickness I ever got in an adventure game.

The end has timed sequences.
There was a nasty puzzle that involved aiming some sort of crossbow thing. I had way more trouble with it than I did with the Timelapse arrow puzzle.

It's worth playing, since you have it.

My friend, RON DORTCH, is one of the actors in TEMUJIN, and I bought it for that reason but I ended up actually enjoying the game in spite of its technical limitations.

I really enjoyed it.. did have probs with the catapult, but after getting some help here got through it.

Sometimes you need to enter rooms via a certain door to trigger the next sequence.

All in all, a great playing experience smile

I really enjoyed this game also. Not iin my top 20 - but definitely in the top tier of games that I have played. Granted I love FMV - but I loved the story and the puzzles. Great mix of the practical and the whimsical. Yep there is a rube Goldberg type contraption - I thought it was fun. There are hints about it - but if it starts interfering with your gaming pleasure - that's what hints and WT's are for laugh

Nice ending too. The game has it's share of twists and turns plotwise. Also one of the few games that isn't about Atlantis or Egypt. I liked the novelty of the game story - quite a bit. smile

The story is one of my favourite stories in a game and the different chapters in the game have good variety of feels.

The game interface is awkward and some of the puzzles (the catapult particularly) is difficult even when you know what to do.

Wow.. so many positive responses. I thought this game was just terrible.. Yuck. Worst navigation system I have played. Bad puzzles. (I hope you like making tea!) Pixel Hunting. Bad story.
And worst of all, you never leave that museum through the whole game! Aargh!

I do have to admit that I loved the security system puzzle that came late in the game smile

Cute, it sounds like it had at least one redeeming puzzle in it for you!

I really enjoyed the game despite its flaws (face it, every game can't be a Gabriel Knight or Tex Murphy game)!

I just got started today, this is really a strange little adventure isn't it? wink Funny that it doesn't need to be installed..that really threw me! Yet you can save..hmmm....more mystery! lol
It seems to be kind of easy, probably misleading tho...

You don't leave the museum, but the puzzles make you feel like you do. Count me in as another that has this as a keeper. I thought it really unusual and fun.

This game is definitely a keeper for me. It seems/seemed to 'call' to me from the shelf after I had played it - and even with the difficulties I suffered with it something about it keeps 'calling' to me - it definitely is not the MOST frustrating game I have played - I loved it even with all its 'warts'....
Love, Betty Lou laugh
