Nathan over at TTGamer has just finished reviewing Aura 2: The Sacred Rings for the PC. If you're a fan of the (now not so common) adventure game genre with an array of challenging puzzles scattered throughout (MYST rings a bell), chances are you might catch onto this one otherwise i'd imagine you'll find yourself getting bored very quickly.
If you dig a little deeper than the large budget mainstream console port riddled surface of PC gaming, you will come across genres that were around in the early years that are still flourishing. Genres like the point-n-click adventure game genre, which is going as strong as ever if you look hard enough - it's just not at the forefront of PC gaming anymore, what with all these new fangled 3D graphics and gamepads. One of the forces behind many of today's adventure titles for the PC is publisher The Adventure Company and recently they teamed up with developer Streko Graphics to update the Aura series with Aura 2: The Sacred Rings - a game that embodies adventure gaming traditions well, although perhaps a little too well.
