Before talking about Ankh however, a massive round of applause to Heart of Osiris’s copy protection; a code-breaking set of concentric cardboard rings which - if used correctly - win you an essential item in the game. Essential to passing the first chapter, anyway. It’s a fitting retro throwback, and instantly warms you to the game. If you’ve played the first game, there’re plenty of recognizable faces to draw you back into the world of conniving Egyptian gods.
