This may look like a dumb game but its very fun to play for kids and adults some of the puzzles are kind of tough but very doable.. For the achievement junkies quick easy 1000 in about 2 hours really cant miss any of the collectibles... Very Fun Game !!
If you are renting a game like this it is for one of three reasons; You want to boost your gamer score or you have kids or both. I fit into the "both" category.
As the other reviewers have already mentioned the biggest gripe about the game is it's length (re: too short) which is great if you want your 1000GP, but not so good if you got it for your kids to goof around with it. Another is that some of the puzzles are not kid friendly at all. Why make the game easy to play and get into and then throw a hard Tower of Hanoi puzzle or car parking puzzle into it (moving trilobites around)?
The real reason for this review however is that I loved how they incorporated learning material into the game so your kids actually learn a few things without even knowing it. Sure there is a lot of artistic license needed when bringing back to life a Pharoah that has been dead for thousands of years.
If ever there was a reason for Gamefly this game is one of them. Too short, but a lot of fun.
