What Gamespot Users have to say about The Dig

    Rated on May 17, 2004 by Ashemaria

    Lucasarts was the premier adventure game publisher for over a decade; games like Monkey Island, Maniac Mansion, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, etc defined what adventure gaming was all about. The famo...

    This game is underrated - it had an immersive and twisting storyline, and puzzles that challenged but were not too hard.

    This game is underrated - it had an immersive and twisting storyline, and had puzzles that challenged but were not too hard. Some might call it farfetched and slow; I say that it is a well paced scifi...

    Great story, a movie should've been made instead of the game!

    The game was a lot more serious than the other titles from LucasArts, but when you go through the story - it probably was a good thing. The story was brilliant and the soundtrack was as good - very fi...

    A great premise gone awry. <br /> Good story, art and music, but is bottle-necked by bad VA, writing and puzzles.

    I've always considered this game to be the weak link in Lucasarts adventure games, and after playing it again recently, i stand by that belief. "The Dig" tries its hardest to be good, but at the end, ...

    Can't believe this bad review....

    Was someone having a bad day when they reviewed this game? 4.5???? You've gotta be kidding me! I remember buying this maybe a year after release and I loved it! The story was exciting, the music wa...

    One of the best point and click adventure games in history of gaming! A must play for every Science Fiction fan!

    I love adventure games, especially old school ones, the kind that didn't hold your hand and weren't afraid to attack your brain cells with puzzles that require analytical thinking, even using a pen an...

    Gorgeous, Inivative and Brilliant

    Rated on June 02, 2007 by thescroll777

    I have to say, even now a days, it's rare for me to find and games nearly as good as The Dig. Despite what GameSpot thinks, I thought this game was remarkably fun and interesting. The backgrounds wer...

    The Dig has the atmosphere and isolation of Metroid, the puzzles of Myst and the story from a good episode of Stargate.

    *Note: This is a review of LucasArts' Steam re-release of The Dig. Why does everybody talk about Boom Blox like it was Steven Spielberg's first entry as a game designer when his first real attempt ...

    We don't see many adventure games nowaday's we can only look to these lost relics in the past, and wonder, and play. LucasArt's the dig, is true to the adventure genre, it sucks you in just like a...

    As almost every one who has written a review, I completely disagree with Gamespot. One of the best games ever.

    Rated on August 18, 2006 by Linkarg

    Ten tears have passed since I played this game, but it is one of those that stay on your mind for ever. It could be hard some times, but it is really fun game. The story is nice. You are always exp...
