Nostradamus: The Last Prophecy
Too hard for me
I play these games to relax and this one just stressed me out. The graphics were great and the story line was probably really good but I can't get past the first day. I buy a lot of these types of games and have never had to buy a strategy guide - I bought this one and still can't figure it out. I may try again some day but I have given up for now - walking around in circles trying to figure out what to do next just wasn't much fun for me.

360 degree movement
This is one of those games where I wished I had searched for comments rather than reviews. There is no demo available, you either buy or not & after reading how great the game was in the reviews I bought.
The initial opening cut scenes were really lovely & I really looked forward to playing but once the gameplay started it was impossible for me. The screen juddered badly & instead of remaining static as you move the mouse the screen moves, nausea set in & I couldn?t even get out of the first screen before having to leave the game.
I wish I had known that this was one of those games where the screens are mobile; I would have known not to buy. I definitely do not recommend for players like me who cannot take 360 degree movement.

I feel ill!
A truly awful set-up. It's a shame, as the developers look like they were trying something a bit different, but it doesn't work for me. I lasted less than 10 minutes before the rotating movement made me feel dizzy. Maybe if they'd kept the movement to horizontal only, it would be more bearable.

The 3-d graphics and sound are excellent in this game. It runs smoothly and does not crash. In this game you are a detective looking for clues. It is impossible to play this game without using a walk through, step by step. This makes it extremely boring. The puzzles are difficult and sometimes it's hard to figure out how to navigate the puzzles or even what you are supposed to do. The beginning task is ridiculous. I am always looking for games that are challenging, and not to easy. Although this games has a cool premise it is not very functional or solvable. I would not recomend this game. I wish there had been a trial version, because it was a waste of time and money.
