Journey to the Center of the Earth
Very challenging game to play
I bought this game back in 08 and played, it was my second long file game and I gave up on the first one I bought because it was too tedious, but this one got my interest and I played until the end, it took me long hours and many incursions into the strategy guide but I did it and enjoyed the game a lot.
Is very challenging that is for sure.

Excellent! Loved it so much!
I watch every version of the movies and the video game did not disappoint. The graphics were beautiful, the story was interesting but not phenomenal. The puzzles were challenging and it was a very entertaining game.

One the best
Even Jules Verne would have loved this. It is beautiful to watch let alone challenging to play. Each scene more attractive than the last. Great characters that you are sorry to say goodbye to at the end. More like this please.

Great adventure game
Played this game shortly after if first came out. Granted, one has to explore a lot and must admit I d/l'ed a wt. but tried not to use it any more than necessary. Liked the story line and the graphics were well done.

Decent old-fashioned game
A bit of an old-fashioned point-and-click adventure game by now, but still one that can rise to the top.
The graphics are a bit clunky by today's standards (I still fondly remember the sceneries with the giant mushrooms) and some of the going back-and-forth for items can take a long time. This is a game for a weekend, not just for a quick game in the evening.
But the world you get to explore is fascinating and there is quite some varation. I'm a fan of the art-deco look of the game.
One puzzle in particular, the island of the spirits puzzle, quite stumped me. There seems to be no way out of it, once you started it wrong. I had to resort to return to saved games to get out of the loop. But apart from that one, most were enjoyable enough, even if some get you walking around quite a bit.
Two nice endings.
I wish they made more games like this one.

good old game but can be a challange
Not a bad game just older than the new ones now with lots of HOS and adventure. This one has more adventure and finding items to use so you can advance. Not that much for HOS.
graphics are not bad just no voice over. This is a fun game with lots to explore to advance. Can be challenging but give it a try.
Hint button is there if you need it, I did. No walk-though which I like just in case.

A bit disappointing
This is a good game with an interesting story and great visuals although many of the puzzles and challenges are left too much to trial and error. The gameplay does not provide sufficient information about what needs to be achieved.

COULD OF BEEN A GOOD ONE
I gave this 3's because I liked the story line and graphics. Nothing intuitive about this game. Takes wa.......yyyyyy too long for the character to get anywhere. Given that, I finally finished it. The title got me, but had I read the reviews I would not have bought this game. And it has such potential.

More of a Chore, Than a Challenge
The video sold me on purchasing this game, it looks like it could be an amazing if it went smoothly. However, the number of times my character seemed stuck with no guidance on where to go, was more stressful than stimulating. I opened up a walk through of the game, but it's not what I'm used to. I'm aware that this is an older game, but I can't stand how it's so picky. Example: Searching for the one little spot on the beach where she can fill her flask. Anyway, I didn't even come close to finishing it because personally, I like to enjoy my games not be annoyed by them.
