  • Summary: This was a pleasant surprise. It’s not a game to break records or redefine the world, but certainly an enjoyable, solid one. I really liked the stylized graphics, and the music was quite good, something I rarely notice unless it’s annoying. The VOs were also excellent throughout. This is classified as an adventure game; there are no HO scenes, but it’s not really a point-and-click either; it feels somewhere in between. I guess gobaba said it best, adventure lite.

  • Summary: Enigma has so much that I enjoy, yet I had mixed feelings about it, too. I love a pure adventure game minus the junk-pile HO scenes. Repeating all the other great things that have already been covered in the reviews here would waste your time, so I won't. The mixed feelings resulted from the occult, witchcraft theme. Yet, the "message or moral" of the story was clear and the same for all, regardless of individual beliefs.

  • Summary: I finally finished up this game after a long break. I found this game to be one of those that was easy to take a pause in but difficult to get motivated to get back into playing. I was excited to play this game in the beginning but about the time I was done with the first ghost, the novelty started to wear out quickly. This is a straight up adventure which seemed fairly easy for the most part and one that will not appeal to the serious HOG player.

  • Summary: I downloaded the demo and enjoyed the play and the fact that is was a bit different so I bought it. I always play in expert/advance mode so read this review with that in mind. Overall: Nice game with a few different takes on puzzles - for example a match 3 where you can only move pieces horizontally, several corker memory games where you get 30 seconds to remember a grid and whats in it before they ask a question about it.

  • Summary: This game is what's known as Adventure Lite, i.e., no HO scenes, and option for non-linear play with tasks and puzzles. That was really the only reason I played it. Certainly the ads for it showing the girl with the startled Norma Desmond eyes weren't that appealing. There's also a casual mode for linear play and more direction. The girl is a medium who helps free five ghosts from the sins of their pasts.

  • Summary: DISCLAIMER: I only played the free demo. I must say the description of the game intrigued me; I couldn't remember a game with a similar plot. Needless to say, I was eager to download it. The game started out well, but as time went on, I became less and less enthusiastic about it. As stated by elizacron, the graphics are very well done. There's not much voice acting, but what there is of it is good.

  • Summary: Count me in as someone who ADORED this game. Adventure fans, take note! A true adventure game awaits you in Age of Enigma. I am sorry to see some wrote reviews of this gem of a game after just playing the demo (in some cases, just a few minutes, even!) Others have done a great job of telling the plot so I'll dive in to the game itself. The game offers the choice of a Casual vs. Adventure mode - love that.

  • Summary: (Agree to respectfully dissent a bit with Jones and Moonwitch!) Well, the BFG reviews are all over the place on this one! I'll take the positive side. I'll bet a lot of gamers enjoy an occasional cartoon-style Adventure game--I know I do. There's a Dark and Eerie theme here, but don't be mislead--quite a bit of fun, wit, and humor. Even though you type in a profile name, you'll be addressed as "Ashley," the heroine. The mission?

  • Summary: Note: only played the demo A good game for beginners, or to while away a steamy hot few hours, although since I wasn't tempted to buy the game cannot guess how long game play is.
