Adventure   Traditional third-person

One of my most favorite adventure games ever, Riddle of Master Lu stars Robert Ripley, explorer extraordinaire and author of famous syndicated cartoon, as he sets out on a perilous journey to find the tomb of Qin, China's first emperor. The game shines with gripping plot, optional paths, intuitive interface, and lush graphics. But it is the fieldishly difficult but fun puzzles that make it a true classic. The lab puzzle in this game joins the Babel fish puzzle in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy as one of the best-conceived and most aggravating puzzles ever devised to stump all but the most experienced players. Two thumbs up!
