Intriguing and complex adventure
This is a first-person RPG adventure with a thoroughly intriguing storyline that mixes challenging puzzles with a well-realised and believable game world, while also throwing in some shooting for good measure. The player takes on the role of a grave robber/archaeologist on a quest for the legendary Holy Grail, but to reveal much more of the plot here would be to spoil much of the game's appeal, as the various mysteries and plot twists will really keep gamers glued to their screens. Further adding to this sense of immersion is the detailed world in which the game is set, with beauty and subtlety to be found at every turn. The artistic design on display here is really top notch, with music and sound further enhancing the eerie atmosphere. Puzzles too are integrated in superb fashion and manage to maintain the story's flow while providing some extra challenge and affecting the world at the same time. The only real problem with the game is its interface, which is clunky and awkward and may put off players unwilling to stick with it. If you can get past this initial frustration though, you will be rewarded with a thrilling, dark and complex tale that is genuinely rewarding.
