The Mystery of the Druids is an adventure game that is best remembered for having one of the worst box cover of all time. The plot has you taking the role of Scotland Yard detective Brent Halligan sent to solve a mystery that feels like it would be in the vein of a Gabriel Knight title. The visuals were poor back in 2001 and the 15 years that have gone by has not done them any favours. The puzzles frequently have you doing things that make your character a terrible person, and the only reason you need to perform the actions in the first place is due to the incompetence and pettiness of yourself and other characters, or due to a series of ridiculous contrivances. The story and characters just aren't interest and mostly serve as brief interludes between annoying puzzles. This is one adventure game that should likely be avoided, there are much better adventure games to play out there.
