Egyptian Prophecy takes you into the world of the ancient pharaohs, for a supernatural mystery. King Ramses II is dying, but would not leave his beautiful kingdom. The god Amon-Re grants Ramses health and long life, if he will rebuild Amon-Re's ancient temple. But a vision has foreseen the destruction of Amon-Re's temple, and with it all Egypt. Only you can find the source of this curse!

The cut scenes are as good as it gets. They alone are worth the price of the game."Prophecy" in a way, is a study in beauty.
Although the puzzles are not very difficult I found them satisfying and I was highly relieved that no advanced mouse acrobatics were necessary to solve them. There was a diabolic sequence in "Uru" in which you had 5 seconds to run down a set of stairs and hurl yourself into a basket that immediately swings away. I probably tried that maneuver 50 times and never managed to get into the basket and I was close to shedding tears of rage. If you don't get into that blasted basket you can't finish the game. I was resentful and my thoughts of "Uru" are not kindly. Thank heavens nothing of this nature marred the pleasantness of "Prophecy."
If you like blood and thunder you probably will find "Prophecy" too tame.I personally like to smell the flowers and proceed in a leisurely manner, looking at everything, exploring everywhere, enjoying the scenery, enjoying the characters. An adventure game worth its salt will enable you to do just that- enjoy yourself and your experience and perhaps learn a few things as well. There has been very little brouhaha made about "Prophecy" as opposed to the "Myst" games and "Syberia." But if you're an adventure game buff, don't miss this one. You'll love it, trust me!
It *is* a bit easy, although for an average gamer like me, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes, it's fun to progress through a story without spending days on a super-hard puzzle.
Speaking of puzzles, some are variations on ones you find everyone, but others are pleasantly different. The "Land of Isis" and "The Book of the Dead" were particularly interesting sections. And I really enjoyed the "finale" sequence.
Other strengths were the generally good graphics, pleasant (although not memorable) music, an excellent 'save' feature so that you never have to worry about 'dying' and re-doing huge sections, lack of gore and violence, and supplementary info on ancient Eqypt (I'll take the word of other reviewers that this info was fairly accurate).
1) Very linear. You finish up one section, then move on to the next.
2) Too much walking from one place to another, with no 'shortcuts.' The trek from the Noas to Paser's house took 20 clicks. I wish game developers would incorporate some kind of "teleportation" system (a map, a spell, etc.) to get from one place to another. Once you've gone to a location, why prove you can do it again (and again and again)?
3) The main character was very 'white' for an Eqyptian, wasn't she? I'm surprised they didn't give her blue eyes.
Despite these minor flaws, the game is a good one, especially for those who don't crave the most challenging experience.
Give it a try.... Hope you have fun!
This is a first-person game, with appropriate "cut-scenes", and although most of the characters were not much above standard-woodenish, I did find the heroine, Maya, quite the most engaging since Kate Walker of Syberia. This sort of stuff matters to me and adds a lot to the enjoyability of the game. Why I don't mind spending my money as much as I might do otherwise with this.
The features such as "save", "load", etc., were VERY satisfactory. I ABSOLUTELY HATE GAMES WHERE SAVING ISN'T GENUINELY POSSIBLE! (HINT TO OTHER MAKERS!)
Game played flawlessly, but for some cut/glitches that I've come to expect from new games. DEFINITELY not a major issue here, as the only problems were when I tried to save, and game "blacked out". Overcomeable!
All in all, I would give game 5 stars in both categories, except I'm hyper picky. The concept, given that I own 3 games w/ an "egyptian theme" (I get desperate), was truly 5 stars in imagination. Well worth the price by all means!
