The Dig Review
In almost every sense, The Dig represents a leap backwards from LucasArts' previous group of adventure games.
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 was terrific, the grap... Read Full Review9 of 9 users found the following review helpful
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 and paper to solve som... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
A true milestone. One of the best games ever. The peak of Point & Click Adventure gaming era. Although graphics and sound appear old-school, they are still decent compared to current technology standards (taking into... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

When I first saw the GS score of 'The Dig' burping 4.5 at me, I could not believe my eyes. I have played through this game a few times and it always entertained me, pulling into the haunting story set on a distant planet... Read Full Review1 of 1 users found the following review helpful
