    Hard! Too hard!!!

    Rated on August 18, 2012 by verbal_666

    This game seems to be wonderful when you first run it. Everyone who played Myst will tell this to you or maybe everyone read Verne novels. Graphics and sounds are realistic. So the inventory with all ...

    Inventory puzzle lovers will probably have the patience to plow through this somewhat tedious adventure.

    Rated on November 17, 2009 by SYdoggXxX

    Adventure games are known for many things, puzzle solving being one of the key elements of the genre. Some of the older adventure games like Myst featured nothing but environmental puzzles, but most o...

    Could be a masterpiece

    Rated on January 21, 2006 by Mehfuz

    Return to the mysterious island is based on "THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND", the great adventure book written by famous French novelist Jules Verne. The game doesn't exactly follow that book, but you'll fin...

    Too short but great overall.

    Rated on January 23, 2006 by Mandycat1980

    This game was really awesome. It made me want to be stranded on a deserted island myself. The graphics were awesome and I loved every bit of it except it just wasn't long enough. I finished in u...

    This is one confusing game.

    Rated on December 27, 2004 by Docto878

    I love playing adventure games, especially with my daughter. The puzzles are usually fun and somewhat challenging. I especially liked Siberia 1 and 2. The puzzles could be hard but they usually mad...

    One of those rare unambitious little games crafted with loving hands and a great attention to detail.

    Rated on February 23, 2005 by questclub

    Return to Mysterious Island is a little adventure which wouldn't offer a compelling and exciting story, but would charm you with its addictive game-play and lovely extra features. It's one of those ra...

    That was a nice first half. Where is the second?

    Rated on February 18, 2005 by jwells

    Return to Mysterious Island is a sweet, short game. It has a nice story and is the best inventory game I’ve every played, but somehow I was left wanting more. While this might be a good thing for a ...

    A captivating and graphically beautiful game but far far too short!

    Rated on February 07, 2006 by mgarribaldi

    I downloaded the playable demo of this game which, subsequently, led me to buy the full version. It is graphically beautiful, a full-screen scrolling backdrop that is just breathtakingly stunning, whi...
