Surface: The Pantheon
It is a Surface, what more you need to know?
Elephant games puts out top-notch games, and the Surface line is the best of them.
So, this is one of the best games around.

Now we know where the people lost in the Bermuda Triangle end up!
This game has it all for me: great art, strong storyline, game play that never lags, and imagination.
There is a sort of Science Fiction theme in that there is a form of higher technology---but nothing that you and I have ever seen.
Good map that transports with code for objectives.
Challenging puzzles that relate to the game.
HOS--besides being beautiful were complex. Sometimes you needed Inventory items to open something and continue with the puzzle.
Grreat game---keep it up, Devs!

Terrific and Compelling Story, Fun game
I see other ratings for many games saying that there was a compelling story but never really got it until this game. I was rooting for the characters throughout the game. The story was great. The voice acting was okay. It wasn't super long, but long enough. Maybe I should have bought the CE but am happy with this purchase.

An exceptional game
Elephant games are always great value for money. This game has an engaging storyline. The graphics are awesome. Music is good - appropriate to the setting. I really felt like I was in another world.

This game is visually compelling with a great storyline and excellent soundtrack. Each scene is very well done and I felt like I was in the middle of the adventure. The characters were well developed and realistic.
It was pretty challenging with puzzles unique to this game.

out of this world hidden object/puzzle game
Have just finished The Pantheon and loved every minute of it.
Plenty to keep you busy and the storyline was excellent. Elephant games are amongst my favourites and look forward to the next Surface game. Well done

superb superb and superb
Excellent graphics beautiful scenery wow. I played the trial and plan on buying it soon. Hidden objects were good.
Another good elephant game. There's so many good games coming out you don't know which to buy first.
The background effects look like 3d. I loved it

Everything about this game is a five-star, perfect Pachyderm except for the hints which tell you exactly what to do, which IMO spoils a lot of the fun. You do have the ability to turn off hints in the advanced mode, but I need one every now and then, in addition to an interactive map, if available, which it is in this game. I would much prefer a directional hint, e.g. a pointing arrow. As a result, I wound up being on the fence as to whether or not I would buy what is otherwise an outstanding effort by this developer and have decided to pass on it for now.

Can We Say Over My Head
This review is after playing the complete game.
WOW another great game from Elephant, but I have to admit it was way over my head. I was lost constantly and had it not been for the hint button I would still be in the first scene. I had a terrible time figuring out where to go and what to do so much that it did lower the fun factor for me. There is a map, but like so many Elephant games, it was good for getting around and that was about it. I played in the casual mode and would hate to think what it would be like in the others.
The graphics and sound were excellent as usual. The voice overs added so much to the game. The music and effects were super.
I already mentioned the challenge. It was a very tough game for me, but if you like this type of situations, you're going to love it. The Hidden Objects were well laid out and clear, but they hid them well. Also they have them where you have to leave the HOS to go fetch something if you missed picking it up along the way, but you don't find that out unless you click the hint button. Then you come back to the Hidden Objects and finish it up. I did a lot of that. The mini games were challenging too. I did skip several. I just couldn't figure out what I needed to do.
The story was tremendous. The cut scenes told the story unlike so many where you have to read the story, this one tells it to you. There was a beginning a middle and and ending, but the ending perhaps laid the ground work for a sequel. You will not be disappointed in the story at all. It was very enjoyable.
All in all this is a good game. I have got to figure out how they are putting these together so I don't get so lost in them. It kind of takes the enjoyment out of playing. Having said that, I am not disappointed that I purchased it and will be playing it again. This series while going by the same name, Surface are as different as night and day.

Looks good so far from the demo
Had no problems with this game and will definitely buy it. The scenes are great, the challenges are stimulating (you have to use your brain a bit, lol). Not too many hidden objects so far but I enjoy them anyway especially if you have to do something to achieve another result!
