This game was a bit of a disappointment to be honest. We picked a game that looked really immersive with nice set design as an introductory room for my father in law. Sadly the immersion was ruined by the loud screams from the teenagers playing the "Saw" game next door and the room played on its styling with extra darkness. The very first puzzle (this won't spoil anything, it is obvious) is doing a tangram - the search for pieces was incredibly frustrating; looking for pale wooden objects in the nooks and crannies of a dark room is not my idea of fun.

We had quite a few clues because some of the puzzles were obtuse (this was game 131, we do not normally struggle on this) including one puzzle which the GM admitted needed a clue every time because otherwise no one would get it - in my opinion that means there is a flaw in the design.

It was such a disappointment because some of the ideas were good but the flow just wasn't there.

Our first ever escape room, and it got us hooked. Nice, well built set. One or two puzzles that we didn't get, but looking back, not sure if that was the game or us!

Favourite room at the venue, a fun vibe at what is mean't to be their hardest room.  Only clue I will give is to look around at all items..

A beautiful set with plenty of wow factor makes you feel like you’re inside an Indiana Jones movie. The puzzles are challenging, even with a larger group.

Reviews by escape room review sites

Game Over hat mit Forbidden Temple of Montezuma ein definitiv herausforderndes Spiel gebaut, was vielleicht nicht unbedingt mit Aussehen, dafür aber mit Anspruch an die grauen Zellen glänzen konnte.

With a gap between games, we rang Game Over's doorbell on the off chance they had a slot free, and they were able to oblige with Montezuma, which they described as their hardest game.

The backstory involves following in the footsteps of your vanished archaeology professor, and while the game starts in an academic's office I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to say that there may be something a little more temple-y involved at some point.

As you'd expect for a game rated with a high diffic...
