Before playing this game, rereading the story of Jason and the Golden Fleece, the Iliad and the Odyssey, and any other Greek mythology will be helpful and rewarding. These stories will yield many clever ploys that can - say - get you out of the Sirens' clutches. Even so, coauthor Bob Davis says that a good adventurer working 24 hours a day would need a couple of weeks to recapture the Fleece, which means that the game is quite likely to remain on your "actively played" shelf for the better part of a year.

As it is, the original story of Ulysses is so superb that some of its atmosphere rubs off on this game. However, this modicum of enjoyment is spoilt by having to endure endless disk accesses as the patchy graphics and skimpy text are located and flashed (with much glitching) onto the screen. Nor is there any sound worth mentioning -- except a little 'Ping' when the text threatens to spill off the bottom of the screen and you have to press shift to see what comes next. Frankly, I felt more inclined to press the reset button. Perhaps I shouldn't be TOO rude about this game, but really I think we can justifiably expect more for our money these days, especially where disc games are concerned. Too much time here has been spent on crummy graphics and too little on game design, I fear.

Nach einiger Anlaufzeit macht dieses Spiel sehr viel Spaß.
