Quandary Review by Steve Ramsey

"...Heriseus starts his quest where Ulysses was last known to be - the fallen city of Troy. As Heriseus, you step from your boat onto the jetty at Troy, and the Odyssey begins. For me, it almost ended shortly afterwards. First impressions are important, and my first impressions were not good. Having worked my way through a confusing (albeit artistic) set of options screens, I was confronted by the game interface. Fifteen minutes later I was ready to quit.

" That I didn't is largely because of my general enthusiasm for Cryo games, and a desire to see how Homer's classic tale had been brought to life. I ultimately won the interface battle, but it was touch and go for a while."

"As I said, I did begin to enjoy the quest. The realm of Ulysses offers scope for the imagination, and some of its settings are almost surreal. There is a general eeriness about much of the game, and the soundtrack adds to the atmosphere of the particular scene. Indeed, the sounds are superb. Given the mythical and mystical nature of the game, some of the problems posed will require some creative thinking. They are not illogical, just a bit different - remember, the gods (and goddesses) can do truly wonderful (and at times capricious) things. The plot has scope for strange and interesting turns, and Heriseus will be betrayed more than once, by god and mortal alike."
