Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart
Game was ok
Good: Challenging and different then a lot of other games. Easy to get lost in but the hint button will tell you what you are supposed to do next if you get stuck. Storyline was good.
Bad: Too much run around. Ended up feeling like I was doing the same thing over and over again. Game was shorter than I like. HOGs were hard and I had to use my hint button almost every time.

Really enjoyed playing this one. Bright colourful graphics and nice story. Found the HOG quite easy as were the mini games. But still enjoyed the game.

Could be better!
I liked the other Margrave games but I lasted 10 mins on the trial game. The amount of talking a pictures were over the top and it was so slow moving that I just got bored very quickly. Sorry guys, this one is not for me.

I don't get the point of this game. No logic involved, silly premise,etc.etc.
The graphics are nice .

Very hidden object heavy
This started out as a quirky game, with pleasant scenes and charming voice acting. But it soon became evident that hidden object would dominate the puzzles. Since that's my least favorite type of puzzle, it became tiring very fast. At some point, I think I had to complete six hidden object in a row, with no other puzzles to spice things up in between. Wow, that's some single-mindedness! If all you want is be taken from one hidden object scene to another, then this might be the game to get.

Too Short, lame ending
The game was interesting.
Graphics were excellent; conversation scenes seemed boring.
Storyline was not the best. The grown child comes back to a place where she lost her parents and there is a beast of some sort on the loose. The ending was lame.
HOS were pretty easy, did have to use the hint a couple times in the scenes that were too dark. Not too many HOS, most were repeated twice though.
Very few puzzles, all were pretty easy. The card thing was pretty simple.
No map which is one thing I think all games should have. Having to continuously go back and forth makes the game less enjoyable.

This game is one of the most enchanting I've played. The set designs are gorgeous, the puzzles are just the right level of challenge, the story is engrossing, the background music is beautiful, and the voice acting shows real talent. I don't quite know what else to say except buy this game!

What Can One Say
I have played many hidden object games and from reading some of the reviews, I was excited about this one. However, it was a disappointment to say the least.
The fun factor... it just didn't exist at least for me. It started out okay, but then it switched to the fantasy type play which is just not my cup of tea. Naming animals from Dream Cards, which is a mini game. Not hard but kind of silly.
For me, it was difficult to figure out what to do next. I hate using the hint so much just to figure out where to go next,, but it does recharge quickly.
The graphics are fantastic.The sound has it's ups and downs, but on the most part is really good. Not annoying and brings some excitement to the play.
I have mentioned the difficulty in where to go next, but I must say the HOGs are challenging. From what I played I had to use the hint button at least once. Even with the hint, it was difficult to see the object, so they are well hidden.
The story line was... interesting for the time I played, which was just the demo. I saw enough to know it was not keeping my attention.
I personally am not going to use my credit to get this one. I'll save it. I might buy this on sale, but not at this time. For the first time, I have to say I do not recommend this game, unless you are into fairy tales.
