Summary

My all-time favorite game

The Good

This game gave me the opportunity to explore the jungles of the Amazon without ever leaving my parents' basement. The excitement of uncovering a new tomb, or the challenge of escaping from the depths of a Mayan temple provided me with hours of entertainment.

The Bad

There wasn't a whole lot I didn't like - in fact, I can't think of anything. It was a great all-around game.

The Bottom Line

Expedition Amazon is a graphical adventure that allows you to explore the Amazon rainforest while attempting to avoid traps, natural enemies (read pirhannas, alligators, etc.), human enemies (the natives), and other obstacles. One of my favorite traps was 'falling' into an underground crypt, which often lead to a huge amount of treasure, assuming you could find your way out.
