The Lost Crown is one of the very best adventure games that I have played.
As the character (Nigel Danvers), you explore locations throughout the game in a search for the lost Saxon crown. During your journey, you encounter many interesting and strange characters, lots of wonderful locations, creepy voices, ghosts, unexplained phenomenon and lots more.
I spent many days playing this game and once I started, I just couldn't stop. The game evokes a range of emotions as you play. In much of the game you feel that 'someone' is watching you and there are certainly plenty of moments during the game where you will simply jump out of your chair!
The game has a wonderful creepy ambience (especially when you are playing at 4am with a 5.1 surround sound system or with headphones on).
The characters are superb; you feel that you really get to know all of them as you progress throughout the game. You also obtain assistance from characters, essential at later points in the game whilst you are being chased by ghostly figures!
As the game character, you get to use many fantastic ghost hunting gadgets to find and communicate with lots of ghosts!
The graphics are superb: Wonderfully rendered, the game also feels alive with lots of 3D artwork and actors (birds, cats, wildlife, people, reeds swaying, rolling fog etc).
The sound are spectacular: The effects (footsteps, 'over here' voices, ghostly sounds etc), eerie soundtrack and dialogs are amazing.
If you love adventuring, solving mysteries, exploring beautiful locations and enjoy being frightened with lots of spooky encounters - you must play this game, hours of fun adventuring!
Can you find the lost Saxon crown?
