Beyond Atlantis (a/k/aO) Beyond Atantis, is an extraordinary game! Worth every penny. The locations are unique, puzzles are consistent w/ the locations, the characters you get to care about, and the puzzles are (being redundant) likewise. It's an older game, so there IS disk switching. Also, when I seriously upgraded my video card, I did need to dumb down my display so thing wouldn't twich out. After you get into the game, though, you can change back to better definition. Having said that, fact that I still keep playing the game says something. One thing to have a cheap thrill for $20+ and figure you'd lost your gamble, another to pay the same and keep on wanting to go back. Beyond Atlantis - for the most part is the latter. Well worth the price.
Now I see that BA 1 and 2 are offered as a package. I've played both. Would that I'd waited but I'm an adventure gamer/graphics freak. BA 2 (or Atlantis 3 whatever) is definitely a cynical attempt to ride the success of its predicessor. Still not a waste of money, given the deal offered here, so I would recommend going for it. Both are still great fun, and a lot cheaper than therapy.
I'd rate BA 2 5 stars in both categories, but here they're combined. Besides, some thought should be given to "I've gotten this far, so...?" Nevertheless, the trip was a hoot, if unevenly so, given both games.
Go ahead and buy the combo! worth the ride at this price.
But the second game definitely drags the set down. Some of it was pretty, but it is not nearly as interesting as the first game. And there were way, WAY too many linear puzzles, as in "I'm stuck in a room and have to find the one thing I need to use to get out, which leads me to another room, where I have to find one thing..."
I don't personally plan on playing either of them again, but since I got them for a good price, I suppose they were worth it for a few days entertainment.
Technically speaking, the game definitely has some issues on today's computers. Running windows XP, the game crashed many times. The load times are also quite long, even though the hardware should allow them to go much faster.
