Reviewed: Secrets of the Ark
Producer: The Adventure Company
Required System: PC, minimum processor 1.4 GHz, 256 MB Ram, 128 MB DirectX 9.0c video card
Overall Rating:
Author: Michael Ahlf

Another year, another crop of adventure games - thankfully, the genre has been having a resurgence lately, based largely on the works of European game studios eager to take on deeper stories and finding the point-and-click adventure genre a great way to get them out.

The Adventure Company has brought the fourth part of the highly acclaimed Broken Sword series, Secrets of the Ark (also known as The Angel of Death in Europe) to America, sharing a game that uses more computer than most adventure titles do, but takes good advantage of what it uses to create lush, enjoyable scenes and intriguing puzzles. Overall, it's not a perfect title, marred by a few control issues, but it remains worthwhile enough picking up for the solid storyline and writing.
