TerraX - Curse of the Pharao

The game includes a 35-min. Video on the main topic of the game, many texts, Info-adventure, informative encyclopedia on the topic of the game... It all sounds good, but unfortunately the game is not a 3D-Reconstruction, but made of simple drawings (take a look at screen shots). As I said already, there are only drawings, which are not interactive und not mobile. Everything stays on it's place, there are also some figures which move, but they are very unreal. The drawings look very simple, as if they were made with color pencils on a piece of white paper. It's really dull. It took me much time to descide, if I will take these 4 games on my site (there are 5 games created by Terra-X, 4 of them can be found on that site), they are here now - but only to make my site complete. The encyclopedia and videos are nice. The videos are like small movies with good costumes and decorations, played by real actors, but the videos are small and don't have a good video-quality. If you are really interested in the topic of the game, you may buy it, but if you just like to PLAY history adventures, forget it.
I don't have any information if the games were released in English or some other languages but German. If you have some info, please tell me.
