"The story, based on H.P. Lovecraft's novel "Mountains of Madness", takes you back to 1937 when Nazi Germany is readying its war machine. Through an eye-catching introduction, you find out you're an American agent named Ryan aboard the British submarine HMS Victoria. You're in the South Pole, and the Victoria has rescued a young Norwegian anthropologist and several frozen crates. But this isn't normal cargo - it seems the crates hold a few aliens on ice."
"Prisoner of Ices's biggest accomplishment is that it adds more realism to characters without limiting game play. Some 40,000 frames of video-based animation make the characters more lifelike without mutating the adventure game focus."
"Prisoner of Ice is varied enough and long enough to satisfy. You must explore more than 150 areas in 15 locations, such as Edwards Naval Base in the Falkland Islands, Antarctica, and Buenos Aires, and interact with a host of characters. You'll find there's a lot to do here, and unlike so many other adventure games, you're not confined to a spooky mansion."
