4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable game. 18 Jun 2010
By RJW VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to buying a puzzle game for your ds. The market is awash with so many similar titles, particularly because the ds is so well suited to the genre of puzzle/logic games.

So with that in mind, each game has to provide something original and different to become a stand-out title, and persuade you to part with your money.

Does 'Cradle of Egypt' do this?
Yes, is the answer. But only just.

The premise of the game is simple enough - match coloured gems to make then disappear. In that respect it's very similar to games such as 'Bejeweled' and 'Puzzle Quest Warlords', but where Cradle of Egypt attempts to deliver it's unique selling point is in the adventure/strategy aspect of the game.
With each completed level, you are awarded that ability to construct a little piece of the Ancient Egyptian landscape. The more you complete, the more levels are unlocked. The more levels you unlock, the more you can build. ..and so it goes on.
This aspect of the game is a cross between a simple reward system, and a (very) basic simcity-esque affair. It could so easily feel like a gimmick, but the balance is set just right, and as the levels tumble you will actually find yourself looking forward to seeing which part of the city/landscape you can build next.

Cradle of Egypt, in my opinion is a very good game.
It is primarily a puzzle game. But the little extras that become evident while you play really do elevate this title from mediocre to enjoyable - something that is very admirable within such a saturated genre.

The only downside I can think of is that the game isn't terribly long. Hence why I give it 4 stars instead of 5. But that really is the only gripe.

Overall, if you like puzzle games then you will find Cradle of Egypt to be very enjoyable game indeed, and one that you will never want to trade-in. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth waiting for! 9 July 2010
By sparkle
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought the first game Cradle of Rome a few months ago and really liked it. I'm a big fan of this type of game and can easily spend a couple of hours at a time playing it. I immediately pre-ordered this game when I saw that it was due for release and I haven't been dissapointed. New bonus tools and over 100 new levels that I'm working my way through. If you like this kind of game of matching 3 or more jewels then give this a bash.

I have the game Cradles Of Rome which i really like.I bought this game for my mum for her birthday, she says the game is a bit harder and it has an added part to get through to the next level but she likes it. It is very addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable game 1 Aug 2010
By Krazy K
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had purchased the previous 'Cradle of Rome' so was looking forward to playing its sequel. Was not disappointed. Really enjoyed this game, especially its added star guest! which appears on every level. This game was not as difficult to play as the first, so subsequently completed faster. Would recommend as it is addictive and fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cradle of Rome by another name 25 Jun 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Unsurprisingly this game is similar to Cradle of Rome - so much so that if you already have Rome, you do not need to spend money on this. That said it is an enjoyable puzzle game with some minor improvements on its predecessor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very addictive 4 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great value for money as you can't quickly finish it, you very often have to go over the same level many times.This can be very annoying and although i've completed all the levels twice i have been unable to purchase the pyramids at the end due to not having built up enough points. I'ts worth buying though, you can easily spend a couple of hours on this game and not realise it, i'ts so addictive.

Excellent game for someone who is of the older generation like me. Similar to Mahjongg games where you go through various stages which get harder as you progress. Like this sort of game which I find very relaxing.
