The Gamers Temple: Cleopatra: Riddle of the Tomb Review

Review By Tom Cross:

"When Myst III: Exile introduced the fisheye cam to puzzle games, the entire puzzle-adventure genre took a huge leap forward. No longer stuck in the static, postcard-like version of reality pioneered by Myst, gamers could see almost all of their surroundings, allowing for more complicated gameworld interaction, and more interesting and arresting landscapes.

What a sad thing it is to look at today's puzzle games and see that they haven't evolved in a promising way since Exile. If they've done anything, they've regressed, making up for this new technical capability by mothballing stories, acting, interactivity, and originality.
