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?
