Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

Like Return to Mysterious Island before it, the gameplay is completely solid. One known game-stopping bug takes the score down a bit.

Graphics:

Great visuals and well-constructed fantasy landscapes, on minimal hardware requirements.

Sound and Music:

Well-done musical score and voice acting, with a very time period-appropriate announcer for important voiceovers.

Difficulty:

One downside to the myriad options in the game is that it's nearly impossible to get stuck in this game; any time a possible solution seems not to work, there's always something else.

Controls and Interface:

The controls are exactly the same as Mysterious Island's, which is a wonderful thing; the ability to explore the item-combination engine was something I had missed in Echo.

Overall:

Well worth playing through, especially if you can get a copy of the Jules Verne novels and read them first.
