A decent adaptation of the Michael Crichton's novel of the same name (or more precisely, the movie that followed), Congo suffers from frustrating action elements and overly obscure puzzle solutions. In one offending puzzle, you must tag a person and chase her around the jungle. You also can't examine any object in your inventory, so their uses typically become obvious after trial-and-error. Still, it's based on a gripping story (investigate the mysterious disappearance of a Congo expedition), and sports some good acting and cool gadgets to use.
