Well I finally actually was able to finish one expedition fully. Was 54 points behind the leader and i had my mummy worth 100 washed away right before reaching the last pyramid. And mind you, it was brutal. Being chased by natives trying to kill me, even missionaries asking me for tribute to sleep, losing all but 1 guy I had just picked up, eating my dog. This is the easiest setting? Extremely brutal...and extremely repetitive. I wanted to like it. But there is just a lack of content here.
It does go far deeper, there is a lot to do and a lot of surprises. I've been playing this since it was first on GoG and have played through the different versions. I am really hooked on this. Highly addictive I thought.
There are different modes so you can choose an easier one which is quite gentle. Keep at it, the depth is there and when you see it, you will be amazed.
