Have you ever wanted to visit an exotic city like Istanbul but do have enough money to make the trip?

Very Good

To all the people who are having the issue of being "hung up" with a phone they can't answer:

A fellow on Youtube who produced a video walkthrough of this game told me how to fix this on Windows XP.
Simply go into your START MENU, Activate RUN, type DXDIAG (Direct X diagnosis)hit ENTER and in the resulting window, hit the SOUND tab and lower your hardware sound acceleration (using the slider near the bottom of the window)to whatever notch makes you answer the phone.
I had this issue and I switched my sound acceleration to Basic Acceleration and the game worked perfectly!!
Hope this helps! I'm off to solve a Byzatine mystery!!

Fair game but the problem is on the political motivations behind it. Byzantine was Roman (or Greek at least) and it has nothing to do with Ottomans or Turks. Same with things like using names as Homer etc....I went to Asia Minor last summer and the (Turkish) tour guide was showing an ancient Greek temple saying that this is "Turkish history"!! Thank God a fellow American was present (happens to be history prof) who 'corrected' her...sad story...

TalosLn: Istanbul is both ancient and Turkish. Better explain why you have given only one star to the game.
