Egypt III: The Fate of Ramses
I personally loved this game. The graphics are great, no glitches, interesting.
Each level was solvable within itself.(everything you need to finish that level is on that level). There is not alot to each level, but do not get me wrong, you have to really think. Same for the many fun puzzles, they are more a common sense, patience type puzzles.
I will say once again I loved the game. Remember to think, look around, and do not forget to look up sometimes. Enjoy the game.
I do not give a five often.

This game is truly beautiful, the graphics are fantastic, the story is very interesting and I love ancient history, is very challenging and not your typical game to play as like any long file games are, it can be a littler bit frustrating at times.
But I did enjoyed playing this game.

A Collosus of Beauty and Difficult Mysteries.
This game is a collosus of beautiful graphics combined with puzzles, mazes and intricacies as difficult as those in the other large format games I have played. I found this game more difficult than the Nancy Drew disappointment, "Shadow at the Water's Edge," which featured so many puzzles that had nothihng to do with the storyline, and wasted so much time.
I know that some of the reviewers of this game made the claim that the puzzles (does that count finding items to get to the next scene?) are not especially difficult. That's just not the case. The ENTIRE GAME is a puzzle, constantly throwing new challenges at you at every turn. So either those reviewers are geniuses or they used a walkthrough.
This was one of the very best of the large format games and I look forward to EGYPT IV -- an EGYPT IV that uses ONLY a linear format, as the non-linear format is so clumsy to use.
A final word about this incredible game: The gorgeous graphics are, indeed, the epitome of prismatic ornamentation, especially when the heroine deals with the various gods.

I found this game absolutely delightful! The puzzles were not so hard they couldn't be solved, the graphics are beautiful, and there are so many hints that just keep you going.... It is rather easy to figure out what to do and/or where to go next. I enjoyed it all the way to the end. I highly recommend this game!

WOW!!!! Is my #1 Game
I LOVE IT!!!! What a incredible "movie-game". I was immersed in the game-play scene by scene. It's a totally different game of the hundreds that I've played so far. It keep me awake until I finished. The puzzles were different and a little bit challenge but I have to look for the walk-through just at the very last puzzle, because I had to go to bed.
The visual and sound were beautiful through the whole game. I even saw the "making" because I wanted to know a little bit of how it was made.
When is the next one coming?

Take your time and explore
Every location had a different type of challenge, but the answers were always in the same location as the puzzle. There were some very fustrating tasks that needed to be accomplished while being timed. A few were "Duh!" type of tasks. A couple of the challenges/puzzels required you to think "outside the proverbial box". Some of the solutions to the challenges/puzzels were so obvious I couldn't believe I spent the amount of time trying to solve it!
I found the important part of the this game is taking the time to stop and look around. I passed by clues and/or areas of play many times. Taking your time gives you a chance to appreciate the graphics and details of the different locations. Historical storyline is wonderful! This game is pretty much enjoyable and I did not regret the purchase.

I bought this game (which has no trial version available) with a coupon, simply because I love anything to do with Ancient Egypt and the introductory video seemed ok. What a mistake it is to buy a game without trying it beforehand! I hated this game and believe me, it takes a lot for me to say this as I have never given a game only 1 star before. There are so many things wrong I don't know where to start. The main problem is the 360 degrees rotating view which makes travelling from room to room difficult and awkward and I just got nauseous. There is also nothing happening, you spend all your time walking from room to room, getting lost (no map is provided) and no explanation is given as to how to use the controls. You spend your time talking to characters (how boring) and walking around with no idea where you are going! No HO scenes, no puzzles - after 30 min - I just quit. How awful!

Too hard to Move around!
I ended up getting a refund for this game since there is no trial version. BUYER BEWARE! You have to move through this game manually. It is confusing. It has the kind of layout like the old game "Myst" if anyone ever played that. I hate when you have to click-and-point to navigate your location.
