  • Summary: This was the best game I've played in ages! True adventure game fans will love this one - not a single Hidden Object scene to deal with, just pure adventure gaming in every sense of the word! Yes, the game was relatively easy and the graphics nothing to shout about, but the fantastically woven story, acerbic humour - which reminded me a bit of the Monkey Island series from the early '90s, and excellent voice acting throughout (I LOVED the voice actor who did Shaggy!

  • Summary: Wow. If I could give this game six stars, I would do it. I absolutely adored playing it! The story of the witty detective with the tragedy in her past has been done before, but the gameplay, graphics, voice acting, and clever quests ALL more than make up for it. The story begins in Emerald City, 40 years after the events that brought Dorothy Gale and her four companions to Oz (and they have all aged well, I must say).

  • Summary: I loved this game! It was very linear but that was comfortable for me right now and it was a hoot.

  • Summary: WOW! Its just my fvorite game. It stands in fiirst position in my favorite games. Petra is a wild detectiive. The story is spell binding. Its about magic and I enjoyed using the magic. The corruption, cruelty was shwn very well. Ozma's corruption was also very well shown. Characters are very nice. it deserves a sequel for sure.

  • Summary: I love this game! I have to admit a first glance it didn't seem like it was interesting but once I tried it, it was just gripping. The story line is so gripping, it has it's own take to the Wizard Of Oz story line being set way in the future where magic is banned and I love the way old and new characters intertwine. The dialogue is just great with a mix of useful information and those extra lines that give this game a likeness to reality.

  • Summary: Fun game, has sense of humor (often sarcastic), well written but a little too simple at times. Still entertaining. Nice game.

  • Summary: I loved this game. It was one of the most fun games I've played in a while. For me "fun" is the defining criterium for a game. I had an "iffy" reaction at the start but that dissipated fairly quickly. The storyline is interesting and the dialogue is great and pulls you along through the game. That the story is based on the environment of "The Wizard of OZ" is a big part of this game's success.
