Guillermo's Thoughts:

(review based on the Spanish translation)

This book combines elements of the thriller genre with an adventure story inspired by H. Rider Haggard. I found the first half of the book sloppily put together and thus not very involving, but the book picks up the pace towards the end. Overall, both story and gameplay are as satisfactory as expected in this series.
