Reviews:

Just Adventure by Ray Ivey

As with the other titles in this series, the game comes with an online encyclopedia that covers all of the areas of the game in exhaustive detail. At least one puzzle requires searching through some of this material (again, this is not a complaint from this history buff).

The game does touch on many different interesting historical subjects, from embalming to mural creation in the tombs, to religion, politics, and culture. The best bit in the game, a sequence that combines documentary value as well as just plain fun, is one in which your character has to gussy himself up to look like a nobleman in order to crash a party.
