I finished Labyrinth of Lies a few days ago. My general overall impression is that it’s ok. Nothing seemed to jump out at me to make it into my favorites category (games I want to play over and over). But it wasn’t a game that I probably won’t play again. I liked the Ancient Greek history and culture part of it and that it was in Greece. I also liked the Greek play part and the underground world, was very cool. There really wasn’t anything I disliked about the game. The story line was better than the previous games, more believable. I felt this game was a flashback to some of the earlier games but with better graphics.
I’m still playing Labyrinth of Lies, but so far my thoughts on it are. The underworld part is pretty cool, (especially the fire room). and it’s a new element of the game. I like the “costumes” the characters are wearing. There is a lot of information about Ancient Greece in the game. There are some new types of puzzles to figure out.
LOL also reminds me of several of the older Nancy Drew Games.
1) Secret of the Scarlet Hand: Both take place in a museum. However LOL makes more sense to me that SSH, because unlike the latter, which takes place in a Washington D.C. museum that specializes in Mayan artifacts, the museum in LOL is a Ancient Greek museum that is in Greece.
2) The Final Scene: Nancy is sort of stuck there. She can’t leave, and travel to other places.
3) Tomb of the Lost Queen: Ancient artifacts except this LOL is about Greek ones and not Egyptian. And there is that weight puzzle too.
