One of the most educational and literate games ever released, the game unfortunately suffers from the snail-like pace and puzzles that require meticulous reading of the on-line encyclopedia. Similar to Riddle of Master Lu in that you're trying to find the lost tomb of Qin, China's first emperor, Qin treats the subject much more seriously-- too seriously for most people. Still, its intriguing subject matter, excellent educational content, and well-integrated puzzles make it a game worthy of all Myst fans and those who crave an intellectual challenge and don't mind the lack of human contact.
