Read the book first...

The Good

This is a great expansion for the book. To plunge into this as an adventure game without knowing the background of the book is like being thrown into a foreign culture without being able to read the signs. This is not something to be experienced without the proper background. With proper preparation, you will enjoy it immensely!

The Bad

It's not a game for 'professional gamers', but rather an additional adventure for those who are willing to read the book. Viewed in isolation, it is not a groundbreaking adventure, but if you understand the background first, it's a lot more of an addition to the adventure.

The Bottom Line

This is a 'cross-cultural' experience for those willing to read the book before playing the game. Once you read the book, you may just start reading more and playing games less! It's that good! Considering the minimal computer requirements, the excellence of the graphics and the undemanding gameplay, you may be able to get some of your friends to experience computer-gaming for the first time!
