Mata Hari: Betrayal is Only a Kiss Away is an entertaining, classic adventure game based on real-life events. While the character models could have used some extra polish, the graphics and sounds are enough to make you overlook the small issues. You will use Mata's unique bag of tricks to ferret out information, documents, and codes from a lot of people, many of them actual, historical figures.
Guiding Mata up to – and into – World War I before finding one of four possible fates for her makes for a very intriguing, albeit somewhat slow, game. People with a fondness for historical fact, historical fiction, and especially gamers who want a realistic female protagonist would do well to pick this game up.
