Jules Verne’s Return to Mysterious Island

Jules Verne's Return to Mysterious Island

This is an adventure game port, much like Myst, but with freelook (which actually adds a lot). The artwork and theme are quite nice, as are the ambient sounds. You collect seemingly useless objects, then combine them (if you’re lucky) to make less useless objects. Is it fun? Mmm, not so much, really. You usually end up with a huge inventory, cluttered with junk, but not the one piece of junk you need to progress to the next level. It is possible to lose the items needed to progress, with little feedback that this is the case. This can be quite frustrating.
