Windows 3.xMystery Manor (Nov 20, 2004)
Overall, CHAOS is a mixed bag. The originality and variety of puzzles (not a crate in sight) is a breath of fresh air in a genre dominated by cookie-cutter games. With comedic adventure games a dying-to-dead sub-genre, gamers who like laughs in their games should consider this one a must-play. And it shines as an edutainment title, not forcing the player to sift through the educational content, but making that material interesting and fun to read for that player who chooses to do so. But these positives are accompanied by some dated and lackluster graphics, occasionally obscure, unclued or illogical puzzle solutions, and a truly terrible navigation interface. The result is a flawed but rare gem. With a price of around $8-12 used when you can find a copy, it is well worth a try.

Although Chaos does have a sense of humor and imparts some basic information about chaos theory, for my money I'd rather play the more entertaining Myst and read James Gleick's more informative book, Chaos: Making a New Science.
