I have rarely played a game I’ve enjoyed as much as Buried In Time. I spent most of the game staring at the screen with a stupid grin on my face, saying, “This is so cool!” over and over again. This game is a masterpiece of design and writing; I consider it a genre-defining game, and put it up there on my best list along with Circle of Blood, Obsidian, and The Rose Tattoo.

Si la traduction est à la hauteur, BiT devrait sans nul doute être un très bon soft, le scénario s'avère fort complexe. Cependant il requiert une grosse config pour tourner parfaitement.

Coming Soon Magazine (Jan 13, 1996)
Buried in Time is the sequel to the very popular Journeyman Project game. Suspense, mystery and history are all combined into a solid adventure game published by Sanctuary Woods Multimedia Inc. The traces of the two year making period become palpable from the very first moment you start the game.

As a sequel, The Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time succeeds its predecessor admirably. While this game still has some faults, they are very minor compared to its strengths. Overall, this game is a beautiful, well rounded, traditional adventure that manages to be interesting, challenging, educational, and fun.

PC Joker (Sep, 1995)
Die Rätsel während der Beweisführung des unschuldig Verdächtigten sind zwar nicht sonderlich originell und auch nicht immer logisch, aber schwierig sind sie. Zudem bezieht das Spiel seinen Reiz vornehmlich aus der imposanten Präsentation: Selten gab es derart fotorealistische Render-Grafiken zu bestaunen, selten eine so gute Musikbegleitung (im Stil von Pink Floyd) zu hören! Um das alles in seiner ganzen Pracht erleben zu können,werden allerdings 16 MB RAM benötigt, da man ansonsten entweder mit reduzierten Animationen oder aber mit der weit weniger eindrucksvollen Optik in 256 Farben vorliebnehmen muß.

Adventure Gamers (Jul 15, 2004)
Overall, Buried in Time is a solid middle installment in the Journeyman Project trilogy. It maintains a tight continuity with the original, and its ending clearly sets the stage for a follow-up. The improvements show that Presto wasn't content to rest on their laurels, and their efforts are commendable, if flawed. Unlike the previous game, Buried in Time should have a broader appeal than just science-fiction fans. There's humour, there's history, and a healthy dose of puzzle adventure that moves the franchise forward appreciably, if you can dance around the awkward missteps along the way.

If you're a lazy gamer, don't even bother with “Adventure” mode—you'll just hurt yourself. Instead, play "Walkthrough" and enjoy the cinematic feat here. This is an awesome experience whose completion feels a little like finishing a long novel that actually makes you think.

If you're a hard core adventure gamer, the only real draw to Buried in Time is the novel multimedia format. To all others though, Buried in Time should be a lot of fun to play. Not only does it make good use of multimedia, it's also chock full of facts and has an interesting plot line to boot.

PC Attack (Oct, 1995)
Pity, really, because BIT is chocka with cool appalling acting. Excellent - unless you've paid for the game, of course. Take our advice and give it a miss.
