SummaryA decent adventure, but not the best in the series.
The GoodI have a different opinion about Atlantis 3. Although overall it is not a bad game, it falls far short of being a great one.
My favorite parts of the game include its ..
Random solutions (different for each player) … Easy-to-medium difficulty … The way they are interwoven into the story … Varied types (no color or sound puzzles and no mazes!)
Beautifully rendered in 3D … Cut-scenes are gorgeous.

Point and click … No limit to the number of saved game slots … Direction cursor “snaps” into position when clicked, eliminating dizziness.
Not really a musical “score”, but pleasing to listen to as you’re working the puzzles.
