I am a fan of history of France, so this title instantly got my attention. Even though Versailles Mysteries isn't a top notch title it is still pretty fun to play. It is a typical point and click game, but with some interesting mini-games, that require not only logical thinking, but also pretty nimble fingers at times. You will have to dance, duel and do other things. While at almost 25 $ it is a bit overpriced, it is pretty worth the cash if you can get it during some pretty good promo.
