Arguably the best game based on the Greek mythology ever made, Wrath of the Gods puts you in the sandals of an orphan who discovers that he's actually Zeus' son and must accomplish heroic deeds to earn his place on Olympus. The puzzles are fun, but easy for those familiar with Greek myths (e.g. how Hercules slayed the Hydra). Cheesy acting is compensated for by an excellent on-line database of Greek myths and locations. The game's fatal flaw is that it had a poorly coded Windows 3.1 engine which resulted in very slow speeds on a 386, making it almost unplayable... a flaw that's no longer relevant with today's computers :) Two thumbs up, way up!
