Chronicles of Mystery: Tree of Life
THIS is an Adventure game!
Now THIS is what an adventure game should be! The story is interesting, the graphics/video (not sure which to call it) is great. Why can?t they have this visually in ALL pc games of our genre? There are no HOG?s (yea!) you do have a ? button, call it a hint button or a map of sorts. I used it! This is not an extremely difficult game to play. If you?re not familiar with adventure games it may be confusing at first. Please don?t quite. Use that ? button!
You play an archeologist who investigates an antique chest and that leads you to different parts of the world and into a story that is fascinating. There is quite a bit of conversation between your characters so be prepared for some reading. At first it was a little disappointing at the amount of conversation, but then it just becomes part of the story and helps to relate to the characters. There is even some humor and funny situations (fountain in Venice), actually made me chuckle.
It has some length, I played several hours a day and it lasted for 3-4 days. I definitely got enjoyment and my money?s worth. I hope you will try to play. BFG also has a walkthrough, and there will be times you will probably need to refer to it, I did.

chronicles of mystery the tree of life
I thought quite highly of this game and found it to be engrossing, exciting and challenging. Some of the dialogues were too long but they could always be cut short at the player's discretion. This is another game that I would place on the top level with Syberia, Syberia II, Chronicles of Mystery: The Scorpio Ritual, Journey to the Center of the Earth, the Nicole Bonnet Art of Murder Trilogy and the best of the Drew series.
But, what happened to Sylvie Laroux at the end?

Being a keen avid point and click gamer player I would definately put this in the top ten favourates. Buy it, you won't be disappointed, to me its up there with Syberia.

A Good Adventure Style Game
I miss the old days when PC adventure games were more popular. This one took me back to those happy days. The graphics were nice, the plot was good, though a little odd, and I enjoyed it end to end. (Ok, some of the dialog went on a bit long). Overall, I really good game.

An unexpected great ending!
You get involve with Nichole and her search for articles linked to the Tree of Life.
It looks like a movie-game where you help the main character and you are part of the development of the story.
It's better than a movie because you are part of it and you need to finish all tasks to see the incredible ending.
I love long files because they are out of the extraordinary with difficult challenges no seen in regular games.
Don't feel bad if you have to look for help in a walk-through site because sometimes even with the walk-through you have to accomplish a lot on your own to finish the tasks.

Excellence! A Truly Great Story!
Another of City Interactive's classic as well as excellent point and click adventure games. A true adventure with many twists and turns to try and discover if the Tree of Life is a myth or a reality. Such depth and intensity is well worth five-plus stars.
All of the Chronicles of Mystery are life-like and 3-D and seems like you have jumped into an interactive novel especially when several escape scenes must be completed within a certain time frame.
The release dates for those interested Gamers follows.
They are all-- Chronicles of Mystery:
1. Scorpio Ritual - Released in Nov. 2008
2. The Tree of Life - Released in Dec. 2009
3. Legend of the Sacred Treasure - Nov. 2010
4. Secret of the Lost Kingdom - April 2011
One of many positives in being a BFG Member/Adventure Game Lover is that I can play a Large File game and then delete afterwards knowing I can always download at a later date so as to free up my computer memory.
Highly recommend this Adventure!
Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

One of my favourites
This game was my second "Chronicles of mystery" game, and its even more exciting and more tricky as "Chronicles of mysteries: The Scorpio Ritual".
Excellent Graphics, some very difficult things to solve. For players who loved "Scorpio Ritual", they will adore this one.
Definitely one of my favourites.

Excellent Adventure that Harkens back to the "old days"
I really liked this game. It was immersive and made you think. You had to solve puzzles and consider how to get out of situations rather than just find an object in a "hidden object" scene.
This reminds me of the games I used to play when PC adventures were KING - Gabriel Knight, Syberia, Indiana Jones.
Worth the price. Yes sometimes the dialogue is long but you can read it fast and skip thru if you don't want to listen. Graphics were good, game play good.
If you liked the old adventures that were part puzzle, part inventory-based solutions, then this game is for you.
I wish Big Fish would convert some of the old classics for download such as the Star Trek games, Kyrandia, Indiana Jones, Gabriel Knight. I would be in heaven!
