Summary: I bought the game today and finished it an hr later, I'd played the demo several months ago. . totally forgetting about it until I saw it for $3.99; I agree with several of the other posters about this game. I did like the fact that doors closed when one didn't need to use/be there looking for objects; I missed a map so I didn't have to go the long route to get where I was supposed to be going.
Summary: Agree with every one else..........BORING! Aside from decent graphics, the storyline was cliche, HO scenes and puzzles were ok, but was too easy to find objects. Even the dialogue put me to sleep, literally! I normally play HO/Adventure games before going to bed, and I've never gotten as sleepy playing a game as I have with this one. Wouldn't even purchase this if BFG made it $2.99!
Summary: I have to agree with the majority, this game did not keep my interest. There was really nothing exciting, and the puzzles were really easy to solve. The story was okay, another hunt for mystical objects that can cause havoc all over the world...blah, blah, blah. The talismans were a little too easy to gather up, and I was able to finish the game in a little over an hour and a half. The graphics were good, which is why I give the game two stars.
Summary: Just another unnecessary game from a developer who doesn't care. It's boring and uninspired with the usual suspects for items and puzzles. How many of these games are we expected to play? What can you expect from a developer who has so little imagination she calls her heroine Lara? Of course you're welcome to give the demo a try but it's a waste of time as it brings nothing interesting. Maybe the coders were eager to go on their Summer holidays.
Summary: This is your average HOG without any of the recent refinements in gameplay. The first thing I didn't like was no real widescreen support. They put the filler bars up for the game, and as small as some objects were in the HO scenes, any amount of stretching would have helped. The game started off with fairly intricate combinations and puzzles but as you progressed through the game, the search for the talisman pieces kept getting easier.
Summary: I bought this game because its one of those that you can just relax with. I have to admit that the graphics are so-so, the music became annoying and I had to cut it off in the middle of the game. The gameplay is okay, no replay value here. There are a couple of places with very tiny items, too much so, and overall, after finishing the game, I felt it was a little too short and just not that enthralling. Glad I used a free game credit on this. Try before you buy!
Summary: I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars because this game is not too bad! The graphics are nice and the hidden objects are really hidden well. That is why I want to give it four stars, but some of the puzzles have me puzzed. All in all, I enjoyed it quite well and if you're looking for a relaxing game, then check out the demo at least.
Summary: For some reason I really had a difficult time finding the 'fun' in this game. I almost, on several occasions, quit the demo...but then thought maybe it will grab me if I keep playing. It didn't, but I'm giving it a C for effort. Graphics were very nice, teeny tiny HO though, a real turn off for me. Used the Hint frequently. As always, try before you buy - this game did not work for me though.
