I am pretty deep into the game now (or at least the pyramid!!) This is truly an amazing experience. It is non-linear and there are so many places to go even without solving a single problem. Well other than a few minor advancements at the very beginning. At first it felt strange to find room after room, picking up tons of artifacts – without having a clearly defined path or even using the items. Then I finally got some long game play and felt like I was really in the pyramid, sifting the sand – warily approaching dark corridors and cautiously opening chamber doors. My knapsack has a collection of strange and beautiful items. Some – their use is now apparent – but I haven’t even gotten back to the chambers where they seem to be useful. There is still more to explore. I love this game. What a deal for $20.00 or even it cost a lot more. I have paid $30.00 to take the kids to a two hour movie and buy refreshments. Can’t even come close to the hours I have already had with ROTS. Well done!!
Folks if you’re not playing this one you are really missing out. Great 1st person game that really makes me feel like an archeologist. I’m wandering around some of the most beautiful rooms I’ve ever seen in any game. So far lots of clues for the taking but little in the way of solutions for my part and I don’t even care. I’m so glad I bought this one. The creators are way ahead of the rest of the pack with this one.
It is the MOST FABULOUS GAME. The next to the last puzzle (Sacred Pool) is almost mystical and spiritual with the ambiance in the 6 tombs. You have got to play this game!

I’m just inside the tent, but I love ROTS. It’s my kind of game. It’s right up my alley ….slideshow ……inventory ….a little VR ……lonely…..great music and graphics. I loved the candle bit….. I kind of like the VR…..it gives me a chance to scope the area deciding where I want to go without the limited slideshow moves, and the graphic change is a great warning VR is working.. As for saving……there is “save” and “save as”. I use the latter and name the save whatever I want. I also choose to put it in documents. I think ROTS is very Riven like.
Get this wonderful game and play it with all your might as soon as you can get your hands on it! This one has everything! It is a classic, first-person adventure game. It has suspense, education, challenge, danger…everything you could ask for. A totally rewarding adventure gaming experience! With limited resources, Omni has produced a fabulous product. And, even though there were a few little QuickTime gliches and small bugs, the game is well worth playing. And the developers are responding ASAP to fix any problems and answer questions. It may well be the best or, at very least, second best adventure game of the year 2000! It has my most enthusiastic recommendation! Do not miss it!

This game is a keeper. It is one of my top 5. By all means, play it. It is simply fabulous and you can do it without a walkthrough if you just want to explore and really pay attention to the many clues you get. It is a FABULOUS game and I loved it. Wanted it to go on forever and there will be a sequel.
