Lost Chronicles: Salem
hidden object game
This game kept you occupied and continued to provide intrigue. Puzzles were a little difficult sometimes, the only down side the instructions for the puzzles tuck away to quickly.

Enjoyable Fun Game
This is another fun game that you play to relax and take your mind off other things. The level is not too difficult and I enjoyed the puzzles. The storyline could have been a little more developed. But this game was a lot of fun and entertaining and I truly enjoyed it. I think you will too.

Entertaining and thought provoking
This game was a thoroughly entertaining and thought provoking game and it is hard to imagine that these type of events actually did happen. A daughter and her mother are separated when the mother is arrested and gaoled for witchcraft. The daughter makes it her challenge to find enough evidence to eventually free her and together escape the dastardly town of Salem. The dialogue was well presented and not excessive but the snippets of history were a tad wearing especially as you are waiting for the next clue to carry on with the game and not be held up by reading lots of history, unless you are in into this type of thing. The music was appropriate for this game being rather dramatic and a little eerie. The graphics were clean, clear and colourful in dingy and darkish surroundings but still allowed the hidden objects, which were still well defined, to be found without too much difficulty. The hint was rarely required. The puzzles were a bit tricky and challenging but well worth the added time spent trying to solve them. The family heirloom was an added attraction dispersing the animal familiars, and I was surprised to read other reviewers comments regarding glitches in the game. I only encountered one freeze up and after restarting, returned me to exactly the same place whithout any losses. The ending was a bit of an anti-climax and unexpected as well as being a bit abrupt. All in all a good game, if I could have given it 4 1/2 stars that would have been appropriate.

I quit playing the trial after awhile because it was sort of boring.Compared with the newer games,I found this one to be of poor quality and not worth the price.The graphics were poor and this made finding the hidden objects awkward.The characters lacked depth.In all it was not a very challenging or interesting game.

major glitches in this game, you restart only to find that you can't continue cause the thing you needed and had before the game froze is now gone! If they were to fix the glitches then I would buy this game

The game was fun to play, but a lot of backtracking to find and use objects make it seem repetitive at times. It doesn't last long enough to be worth the money....two, three hours from start to finish. Not a favorite that I will be playing over again.

Ok, except for glitches
Based on the demo. This game crashed on me more than once. So I'm not buying it. The graphics are good. Music ok, but repetitive. Puzzles are not real difficult. Storyline is ok. I did like the historical pages, that I could read as an option. They were interesting.

Some glaring errors make this so-so
I really enjoyed this game as it got going. It was a nice blend of hidden object, puzzles and some interesting history. it could have been a great way to teach history to kids and give us adults some interesting facts to ponder. However, it has some glitches that cause the game to freeze and an abrupt ending that makes no sense. It's too bad to see a great concept marred by poor execution.

C'mon, Natl. Geo. You can do better
The art is very good. The mini-games are OK. HOS are also OK, although some of the objects are too dark for old eyes. The story concept is really intriguing, but poorly portrayed. We find "incriminating evidence" but never get to find out just what it is. The ending is very weak and lame. National Geographic is a world-class magazine (subscriber myself), and this puzzle is much better than previous attempts, but they still have a ways to go to present a really great game. I recommend for newbies, but if you have higher expectations, don't bother.
