Haunted Legends: The Queen of Spades
UNREMARKABLE BUT VERY PLEASANT GAME
SUMMARY: Game took 4 hours to complete. You?re investigating a series of murders and missing people in a castle owned by a countess with magic cards. You must deal with her traps and funny little assistant (just looking at him makes me laugh). Find the deck of magic cards, one by one, which are used in the finale. Easy to forget why you?re there or what the goal is except for finding the magic cards and following the imp (or is he following you) because the story doesn?t seem to have a continuing connection. In fact I forgot the storyline about half-way through, so just contented myself with continuing playing just for the pleasure of it. It?s a pleasant enough game to play if you like lots of HOS and puzzles. Somewhat surprising ending ? guess some people are easily fooled.
Just a couple details:
HOS ? list based; hand-drawn with one predominant color, so objects are blended and more challenging to find
PUZZLES - mildly to moderately challenging (sliding blocks, gears, wires).
GRAPHICS ? spooky and clear-cut. Some 3-D.

This game was very interesting. I loved having to collect the cards. The hos were a little grainy and difficult to see in some areas. The storyline was good. I would've liked to have had a map and/or a hint button during gameplay when you get lost. That being said, I am going to go look for more of this series.

I have enjoyed all the Haunted Legend series but this did lack just that little something that would have made it great. For starters I found that I had to refer to the walk through considerably more times than I have on any other game. As there is no hint button other than during the HO scenes, this can be a little bit of a pain. Also there is no map, although again, not the end of the world but it would have been helpful. As I say, just little things that would have helped with the enjoyment. Overall though worth playing and a good, if not difficult in places, level of enjoyment.

Great HO games
Really enjoyed this game. Not too much going back and forth and plenty of different scenes. The HO games were challenging and I had to take a hint on occasion. Only negative is that the hint button doesn't tell you what to do next. Be careful to collect all the cards otherwise you won't be able to finish the game.

The game was fun; puzzles challenging. The music was painfully monotonous and unoriginal. I muted it.

Fun game odd ending
I really did enjoy this game. It was quite long. The music and graphics are really good. The HOGs were interesting but at times quite dark with items being mere shadows. Not often enough to spoil the fun. The story is somewhat morbid. At times the storyline doesn't support the gruesome deaths. It takes awhile to figure out there is a reason for it all. The ending is somewhat weak and abrupt for all the effort expended getting there. I wouldn't recommend it for younger players.
Overall it was interesting and challenging and I wish I had purchased the collectors edition.

A nice game!
I played in expert mode.
- The storyline is interesting.
- The sound is good; the graphics clear.
- In the HOS, the objects are easy to find.
- The puzzles are easy.
- There is no map and a lot of walking back and forth.
It took me 2 1/2 hours to finish. I enjoyed every single minute!

Best thing is the challenging HOS scenes
I use hint sparingly but found that I just couldn't find some objects in the HOS and had to hit the hint button. I love this kind of challenge. If you use expert mode the list of items isn't highlighted for the objects that need an action to find them so that makes for a fun twist in the HOS. I enjoyed the game at the end and found most of the puzzles could be done without brain strain.Near the end of the game they became more difficult.
This game took me a weekend of casual time to do. Enjoy

I really had a good time playing this game
This game was very well done. The graphics were great, the music was good, although I'm sure I've heard it before in other games. The gameplay was quite challenging, and I found myself resorting to the walkthrough more than once, but this didn't detract from the game at all - it just helped to put me on the right path. It was quite a long game, which I was happy about. It's definitely worth buying and playing, and the ending suggests that there will be a sequel, which I will look forward to seeing.
