Summary: This one came as a surprise to me. Had not heard the title before. Just thought: well, I'll give it a try - and what a pleasant surprise it was! Great music - really fitting and interesting both. Great hintbutton *smile*, i just need one sometimes. Great hidden object scenes - am now playing for an hour and had no problem in identifying what to do with the inventory items. Very interesting story and shocking good video. WOW.
Summary: Yes this was a really fun game - enough HOG with some easy to mixed mini games. The storyline was intriguing too! Played the SE version and completely satisfied with the length of play and no extras that a collector's edition may offer. If you try the demo, I hope you enjoy it and take the risk on the SE version.
Summary: i absolutely loved this game! Right after I did the demo I couldn't wait to buy it and finish the game! Graphics were gorgeous and very detailed, and the real life acting in between scenes was icing on the cake. Had some engaging puzzles, and I liked the fact that not all HOs were only located in the item searches.
Summary: This is based on a SE. This game has 3 play modes. casual, advanced and hardcore..I played casual.Besides the usual options you can adjust the Gamma/graphics Hint system was very helpful navigating through game as there is a lot of going back and forth to find needed items..HOS fairly easy. sometimes you had to use an item from inventory to get an item. Puzzles were challenging..I'm not a good puzzle person, so they might not be for someone else.
Summary: This game is second in the series of Hallowed Legends, but has no connection to the first game, Samhain. Nothing different about the gameplay as far as iHOG goes. However in HOG scenes, we need to use inventory items to discover some objects, so that makes the HOG searches more challenging than most. Puzzles are ordinary and moderately difficult. Game has achievements to complete - finishing certain number of HOG without hints, no puzzle skipping etc.
Summary: This is an excellent adventure HOG that I played in SE and found to be plenty long. The plot in this one mostly makes sense (it's all relative), and the use of sinister astral looking Templar badguys is a great change. They actually do feel menacing instead of ridiculous. One of the best features of this game for me was that despite having lots of locations to search, they unfold so logically that I had no problem remembering how to get from place to place.
Summary: I had to wait for the SE in order to buy this game, and I have to say it was very challenging for me. I did use the GZ Walkthrough at first, till I realized how helpful the quick charging Hint button worked. I did skip a couple mini-games, but only because they were the games I always skip (click on buttons till all are lit, for example). With my work schedule I played this game over many days, so in my opinion quite a good length.
Summary: Really nice adventure HOG - not lots of HOG scenes and not repeated makes this good so it would be better listed under adventure too rather than pure HOG. I really liked the fact that they had bothered to make the extra gameplay as good as the main game - and again you could play it at different levels. It frustrates me when games change the bonus adventure so you have to play in basic mode with sparkles everywhere. Nice length and interesting end.
Summary: Although I agree with most of the reviews so far,especially by elldee [as usual] I think a couple of things made this unworthy of a 5 star,with NO disrespect to those who do As I have mentioned in previous ones the pen[feather] moving in the left corner was annoying & not needed as the strat.guide was excellent & hints quickly charged & also the endless going back & forth for one item just to make the game appear longer The 'extra's' to find,won't say what in case people...
Summary: I enjoyed Templars. As usual, Elephant Studios win with excellent artwork, live video, audio and graphics. My critique concerning this interesting game on this fascinating subject matter, is the lack of an interactive map. I soon got bored with the constant backtracking to find more HO item openers in other locations, and the travel journeys were erratic most of the time, so it was hint button city.
