Secrets of Atlantis: The Sacred Legacy review

  • Good dialogue system
  • Red-Line-on-Map travel segues
  • Clicking! Clicking on items!
  • Stupid, pointless puzzles
  • Stupid, pointless dialogue
  • Cookie-cutter story

We challenge you to determine, using only your primitive Earth logic, which of the following scenarios does NOT occur on the path to Atlantis:

  1. In New York, a bellhop won’t let Howard use the elevators, but the stairs are strictly for emergencies. Howard starts a fire in a trash can, but first he delivers a letter to the bellhop which (coincidentally!) reminds him of the proper emergency procedure.
  2. Outside the Macao casino, a broken limousine blocks the road. Before he calls a tow truck, Howard arranges mirrors to trick the tow truck driver into ramming the limo, sending both vehicles into a roadside ditch and clearing the way forward.
  3. On the Hindenburg, Howard needs a glass-breaking hammer that is located behind glass. He smashes the case with an ashtray and takes the hammer. Later, he uses the glass-breaking hammer to remove bolts from a steam pipe.

Give up? Scenario 2 is BS. 1 and 3 are in the game (honest). We advise you to save your sanity and leave Atlantis at the bottom of the ocean.
