While The Egyptian Prophecy: The Fate of Ramses isn't a high grade point-and-click adventure game, it doesn't really deserve it's rather low rating. The most likely part that would turn people off from the game is its old-school navigation style combined with a bit out-dated graphics, but other than that it has a nice story and cutscenes with plenty of good puzzles. Surprisngly, it also has a mini-encyclopedia in-game that covers various topics on Egyptian culture/history. Overall, the game turned out to be better than expected.

To access the interface in-game, right click your mouse, and the gold button with the x-mark will bring you to the main menu where you can save. Just be sure to save often because sometimes the game may crash (maybe due to using alt+tab).

I really recommend this game! Despite reading some bad comments about it here, since I love this type of games of "point and click" adventures, I decided to give it a try. If you tried this type of games before and you are searching for a "new" one, I think you should give this one a chance! This type of game is not created very often these days, so I really have to turn to the older ones... Some of the puzzles are really cool (if you like Egyptian history, you will like the details), and I didn't find any of them particularly hard (maybe because I'm used to these games). I mean, sometimes you will have to search for quite some time, but that search is the part of the game that gets you thinking, and it's enjoyable.
Try it!

This was part of a bundle, so I didn't have high expectations from this game, especially after reading the reviews. It was really not as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, the graphics are dated and the voice-acting not really top-notch, but I enjoyed the Egyptian theme and atmosphere it had going.

You play an Egyptian priestess in first person trying to save the Pharaoh by stopping a curse. You gain spells throughout the game to help you on your way.
The movement took a short while to get used to, the 'hitbox' of moving to next place was not intuitive and the arrow was smaller than expected, but when you get used to it, it should be no problem.

It's pure point&click game, and it has a lot of backstory. If you're into mythology/Egypt you should enjoy it. The game gives you a lot of info about the theme on files you can read if you so wish. I don't think any non-usable items were clickable and the game is almost too 'clean' so it's rare to get lost or stuck.

Not the best p&c ever, but not as bad as the reviews make it out to be. I encountered no bugs and only had to look up a couple of things on a guide to get me through.
Not sure if it was a bug, but using 'clairvoyance' on some people makes Maya say "I see... a donkey" which was overly amusing to me.

Worth buying as part of a bundle with some better games or on high discount sale.

Although not the worst point-and-click games out there, I did not find it fun to play. I found that i struggled locating items or would be at a loss for where to head next. While other times its was painfully easy to know what was next. The puzzles where challenging and I did like how the final boss battle happened.
5/10
maybe buy on sale if you are really into point-n-clicks

It's an adventure game with a Myst-like interface.

The story wasn't the greatest but interesting enough to keep me playing.

The setting of ancient Egypt was the brightest aspect of the game. The game provides history and game notes in the menus, and after reading it all of the religiousy stuff made more sense. And there were a lot of religiousy stuff. Priests, Gods, Magic, Rituals, Potions, etc. I'm not an Egyptologist, so I don't know how much of it was fictionalized, however, the cities, gods, and historical figures seemed to be real.

The graphics were decent for 2004 and the cutscenes were above average. The voice acting was hit or miss. I thought the female characters' voices were excellent.

The "find stuff" parts of the game was frustrating. I cheated a few times by Googling where item 'x' was located, because I felt stupid wasting so much time traveling from room-to-room while hovering the mouse cursor over every object to see if it was interactive.

Most of the puzzles were on the easy side except for a couple of brain teasers.

The last boss battle was the hardest part. That's because the rules to the mini-game weren't completely explained.

If the above sounds like your cup of tea, wait for a Steam sale. That's how I bought it. At the low price, expectations were low, and the "pleasant surprise" was high.
