"...Alan Cameron, PI is back in business. The game is
Pharaohs Curse: The Cameron Files II. I think this is a better game than
"...The game is
classic point and click and is presented in first person perspective. Full 360
degree range of vision is incorporated and I found the movement silky smooth.
The music and sound effects are top notch. I enjoyed the Egyptian style music
so much I actually sat at the start screen to listen to all of it.
The developers used the vocal talent of Djazia Satour and she is truly
sensational. Throughout the game, the music is wonderfully matched to the
environments and activity. The graphics are crisp and clear and the game
presents numerous cut scenes slightly pixilated, but very watchable. The
cut scenes are saved for the players reference."
Review by Rosemary Young
"Its a gentle journey like the first, not too easy,
not too hard, and not too long. You once more play as Cameron and the game uses
the same mouse-driven engine, with a first person perspective view..."
"But, of course, theres
more to do than simply explore and admire the scenery in Pharaohs Curse.
Each section has a range of problems to overcome. There are quite a few things
to find, some of which (letters and diaries, etc) simply provide information to
advance the story whilst others have useful clues. Still more, of course, are
items you just collect up and wait for the opportunity to use to solve a
problem in the game world. There are also some aural signals in this game to
listen for, and at least three timed puzzles. If you dont like timed
puzzles rest assured they are short and not too difficult..."
"...As I said earlier, its a gentle and enjoyable
adventure that wont have you climbing the wall too often in search of
answers. The story literally trips along as you solve the puzzles, and there
are some fun things to do and a few frights to be had before you reach the end.
As with the first Cameron mystery, this one is a good game for new players or
if you want a relaxing ride..."
