In the follow-up to The Journeyman Project and The Journeyman Project 2: Buried in Time, you once again step into the persona of Gage Blackwood, Agent 5 of the Temporal Security Agency (TSA). This time, you have the added advantage of wearing the Chameleon suit that provides the perfect disguise by capturing images of people who live in a specific time and imposing that image over the suit. Capturing the image of every person you see may come in handy later.
The object of the game is to retrieve the three pieces of the Legacy from the temple area of each of the three civilizations. Obtaining access to these temples becomes the main point of each time journey as you immerse yourself in the environments. Each culture has its own music and look and the surroundings are as complete as they are beautiful. The environments are extremely realistic and the entire game seems to be filmed in FMV format.
Play is, for the most part, in first person view but after successfully gaining parts of the Legacy or completing a mission, movies show important storyline information. Your viewpoint is from the Chameleon suit's helmet. At the bottom center of the screen is an image showing how the Chameleon suit appears at any given moment. Clicking on the image changes the disguise but never in front of another character. To the right of the suit image is the icon representing Arthur, your AI. Various icons appear over his head indicating when he has information or an idea that might be able to help you.
Along with the completely immersive environments and the breathtaking and amazingly realistic graphics, the game has a wonderful storyline, not only as a full story but also within each of the three cultures. It's easy to get caught up in these storylines as you work to obtain the pieces of the Legacy.
The only problem I had dealt with computer memory requirements. Toward the end, the game would slow down and hesitate; one instance required a reboot as my machine ran out of memory.
The Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time is wonderful with its engaging storyline, interesting characters and many puzzles to solve. It sucks you in and keeps you on an exciting and hair-raising ride until you have retrieved all three pieces of the Legacy and solved the final riddle to save Earth. If you have never tried The Journeyman Project series, this is an excellent game to play as an introduction. And, if you have, this is definitely one you won't want to miss.
Graphics: Absolutely mind-blowing from the over flights of the three cultures after time jumping to the backgrounds and objects you interact with during the game. The graphics are simply top-notch.
Sound: The music is wonderful and adds immeasurably to the atmosphere of the game. The background sounds from the lonely whistle of wind through the Himalayas in Shangri-La to the creaking of the balloon ropes as you soar over El Dorado, make you believe you are really there.
Enjoyment: Extremely enjoyable both for the excellence of the storylines and the wonderful graphics as well as the puzzles you encounter en route to obtaining the pieces of the Legacy.
Replay Value: The game is very long and you may not want to replay it right away but it is a game that can be enjoyed a second or third time.
