Reviews:

Just Adventure by Robert Freese

"...Alan Cameron, PI is back in business. The game is Pharaoh’s Curse: The Cameron Files II. I think this is a better game than its predecessor"

"...The game is classic point and click and is presented in first person perspective. Full 360 degree range of vision is incorporated and I found the movement silky smooth. The music and sound effects are top notch. I enjoyed the Egyptian style music so much I actually sat at the “start screen” to listen to all of it. The developers used the vocal talent of Djazia Satour and she is truly sensational. Throughout the game, the music is wonderfully matched to the environments and activity. The graphics are crisp and clear and the game presents numerous cut scenes – slightly pixilated, but very watchable. The cut scenes are saved for the player’s reference."

Quandary Review by Rosemary Young

"It’s a gentle journey like the first, not too easy, not too hard, and not too long. You once more play as Cameron and the game uses the same mouse-driven engine, with a first person perspective view..."

"But, of course, there’s more to do than simply explore and admire the scenery in Pharaoh’s Curse. Each section has a range of problems to overcome. There are quite a few things to find, some of which (letters and diaries, etc) simply provide information to advance the story whilst others have useful clues. Still more, of course, are items you just collect up and wait for the opportunity to use to solve a problem in the game world. There are also some aural signals in this game to listen for, and at least three timed puzzles. If you don’t like timed puzzles rest assured they are short and not too difficult..."

"...As I said earlier, it’s a gentle and enjoyable adventure that won’t have you climbing the wall too often in search of answers. The story literally trips along as you solve the puzzles, and there are some fun things to do and a few frights to be had before you reach the end. As with the first Cameron mystery, this one is a good game for new players or if you want a relaxing ride..."
