You Get to Shoot Mummies!!!
I love this game! Even before all these shiny new games came out this one was one of my top favorites. It has a ton of adventure, excitement, and you even get to be a "Miss Indiana Jones". I play a lot of casual games. I've probably tried at least 90% of the games on this site. My first game was 'Mystery Legends:Sleepy Hollow' which I bought June 2009, (i enjoyed that game immensely at the time, for it was my first pc. game ever, not to mention my first hidden object,i used to do puzzle books). & I should be reaching my 100th game pretty soon, so I have a little experience. Just try and I think you'll love, and as far as I'm concerned it was the best Collector's Edition at the time. Beautiful pictures and other additions, which don't seem like a lot compared to today's new C.E.'s, but I thought they were great at the time, especially for my first Collector's Edition. ***RA***

Fun and Beautiful game
I loved the Egyptian theme. It was visually wonderful. The bonus play lasted almost as long as the game itself. Lots of fun puzzles and not just one HO scene after another. Lots of places to explore. It isn't a super long game but I really liked it. Highly recommend it!

Temple Of Life Thrills Around Ever Corner
Finally got around to playing this and I have to say what a game!! Music and sound effects are pleasing to the ear, graphics is fabulous to the eyes and the game play is absolutely wonderful and fun! Lots of puzzles and hidden object scenes! Just all around lots to do! There are also trophies to be earned and monsters to shoot as they pop up randomly in the game. If you haven't checked out this game, you really should....it's a beautiful older game that holds up well against the newer ones. This is one temple I will definitely revisit!

Just played the demo and this is a fun rainy day game. Not very challenging. I finished in 37 minutes including all scenes and dialogue. The puzzles aren't that difficult, but they are fun. The HOs were only fair, but had some fun interaction parts. The dialogue moved rather quickly so it made it difficult to keep up. I keep the sound down so can't really comment on that.
Was it just me or does Jane remind you of Anjolina Jolie?
Having said all that, this game has absolutely beautiful graphics and is very bright-a nice change from all the dark stories. It also has some clever transition scenes. I won't be buying the CE, but may buy the SE.
Overall it was a nice easy, relaxing game to play. I'm going to recommend this game mostly because the graphics were so gorgeous, and it was easy fun. A great beginner game.

Does Archeology appeal to you ?
Having the trial version as sole foundation to this review, and the trial giving access to the first chapter only, my rating concerns solely that chapter in the absence of all the rest. I hope the other chapters will justify my appraisal. The story isn't new since you play the role of a lovely young female archeologist embarked on an Indiana Jones type quest.... guess where ? In Egypt ! But never mind. Even on the harder of the two available modes, this adventure isn't a difficult one. I cannot tell at this stage whether the storyline is gripping no more than I can assess the level of difficulty of the subsequent chapters. There is no voice-over, only scripts, and the music is pretty insignificant though not at all obtrusive. Now the goodies ! No skeleton, I'm sorry, but plenty of... no I won't tell you because it would be a spoiler; all I can say is that it's a kind of new feature that acts like a permanent minigame and rewards you with extra hints and trophies.There are trophies for all sorts of achievements; we are starting to get used to that as more and more games seem to offer this little extra and this too is part of the fun; it's nice to see your panel filled up. But the strength of this adventure lies in the HOS's, the hunt for useful objects and the puzzles. Like the rest of the artwork, the HOS's are clear, neat, lively colored, uncluttered, interactive and with items easy to find. Hints are limited to 5, but they are not really necessary. The puzzles are good, some are classics, others are innovative, all are challenging yet not frustrating. The objectives are clearly stated. There doesn't seem to be a profusion of scenes to explore per chapter, but there's plenty to do in each. With four chapters for the main story plus a "secret mission" as a bonus, I would estimate the total playtime to about 8 hours. The game is relaxing and quite good. Is it good enough to justify the extra expense on the CE, especially if, like me, you are only interested in the bonus chapter ? I'm not sure..... but I am tempted.

A good game
We played the demo and finished the chapter to 45 minutes. The graphics and story line are good. We like games that have achievements to work towards and this game has many. There is the ability to collect extra hint points and we thought we were accumulating many, then found hints are limited to 5. This didn't really matter since we didn't use any hints in the demo. Because we finished the demo chapter in a short amount of time, we will wait until the "non-collectors" edition is released. All in all, it was a fun game.

Just Short of The Mark
This game was packed with so much extra, arcade and collecting of items for example, which detracted from the Hidden Object theme. The challenge portion was diminished with hints of the item needed to solve that particular step. The only reason for the high marks given here is that the graphics were superb and playing the game was fun, not challenging but fun.

Like the Egyptian setting!
This was a fun game to play with enough things to figure out to hold my interest. I especially find games with the Egyptian theme mysterious.

just missed being a great CE/hidden object game.
The advanced version was still a little too easy, puzzles not very challenging. Length is great, lots of play for your CE price. love the settings, that you can turn off the dialogue and music but keep background. Loved the extra twists to the hidden object scenes, and shooting monsters. Got really tired of the floating lights and "special effects" lights and sounds every time you solved a puzzle. But all in all a game worth playing.
