1938. James Lee Quatermain is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn't one of them. James is an adventurer by trade, just like his legendary great-grandfather Allan Quatermain. And he knows how to squeeze money out of this famous name of his, while at the same time despising it. Despising those who believe his great-grandfather's tales of the supernatural and those who make fun of them alike.
Accordingly, Quatermain isn't all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, an US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple structure in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care the least that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.
But life has its ways of changing one's perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic, and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala. In long forgotten temple structures the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather's stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten...

Performance is fine
Graphics are OK
Now the negatives:
The voice acting is dire. Your mid-twenties female companion is voiced by a 8 year old girl who expresses herself with all the power and animation of a long term Valium abuser. Your character is voiced by a smug youth who's yet to grow a moustache pretending to be a world-weary man of middle years. If this game had been set in the late 20th century, you can bet he'd have been in 'Nam. Some things just never leave you, ya know? And the villainous German officer talks like someone who has never heard a real German accent (or a British actor doing a passable German accent) and is probably imitating a guy from Philadelphia whose grandmother was German. Or maybe she just went there once.
The scriptwriter probably goes to the same school as the voice actors. Perhaps they do Geography together. The dialogue is stilted, clichéd, and.... it just makes you wince. A lot.
Atmosphere - well, it would be nice if there was some. It all feels rather barren.
Gameplay. Tedious puzzles. Yawn. Collapsing ruins. YAWN. Limping mummies. YAWWWWN. Progressing through this game is like wading through treacle.
Quirks - infinite pistol ammo. This is just as well, because you will need infinite ammo to kill your first mummy. Then you'll need six times infinite ammo for the six in the next room. Seriously, these pests take forever to kill, even on medium difficulty.
Summary - if it drops below a tenner, and you're confined to the house with 'flu, and you really, *really* haven't got any other games you haven't already played to death, then OK, buy it. Deadloss Adventures. It's your funeral.
Now to the game itself. Yes, there is no doubt that the voice acting does more to raise the amusement level than capture the imagination of the player, but I have yet to come across a game where some voices a Nazi bad guy, where someone is not trying to outdo Alan Rickman's Hans Gruber from Die Hard in terms of how terribly camp they sound ... Voice-acting aside, the game has good graphics and performs well even on medium range rigs like mine. The fight against the mummies does get a little repetitive, but the traps and puzzles kept me on my toes right until the end. Maybe it is because I am more of an FPS player that I found this game challenging, it does take some creative thinking from time to time to work out what to do next and while I am not going to give away any of the plot, it was interesting to see how things turned out ... All in all, I enjoyed this game ... it is not Tomb Raider, but then it does not try to be ... for what it is, it is not as bad as IGN and other review sites make out.
