The Odyssey HD
game brief: Step into the shoes of Odysseus (Ulysses) on his legendary journey home after the fall of Troy. But beware, this is no simple task. You will have to escape from the goddess Calypso, blind the Cyclops Polyphemus, face the witch-goddess Circe, visit the land of the dead and find an oracle, avoid the Siren mermaids, pass between the six-headed monster Scylla and the whirlpool Charybdis, visit the Sun god’s island and finally unite your family.(Official website)

review: Read my review @ Adventure Gamers® | rating: 3/5

summary: Despite its drawbacks in puzzle clarity and localisation, The Odyssey HD stays on course with its story, quests, characters and art, offering about five hours of entertaining, old-school adventuring.
