My fav part of the game was the Pharaoh's Tomb, it really captured the mysterious and eternal feel that goes perfect with the setting. The only big name actor was Malcolm McDowell, it was the only part of the acting that I was impressed with. This game, if it was taken more seriously by the developers, could have been a real hit among Egypt fans.
I played it, and loved it. I really enjoyed some other Egypt adventure games better though. Riddle of the Sphinx and it's successor for one. Egypt and Egypt II, really took the cake for me though. Completely 3D, it allowed me to explore the various tombs and things in the Valley of the Kings, and spend hours looking at the heiroglyphs, and provided in-depth histories on the places and people of Egypt. All three I mentioned are made by Dreamcatcher games, now known as The Adventure Company. Their website is www.dreamcatchergames.com
I've been a fan of theirs for years now, I adore the exploring puzzle solving games, I'm really not much of a fighter in games at all, though I do see the need to include it in genres like City-building, for historical accuracy, and role-playing, since it is Good Vs Evil afterall. :-D
