Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart
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.

Perhaps Mac users would vote this low because the first 2 chapters weren't ported over.
With Mac only getting parts 3 and 4, perhaps this was an unclear following.
Still, even with great music, as a standalone adventure, there are better Collector Editions.
I will recommend the game because I know there are those who WOULD enjoy the softness of Edwina Margrave.

Not my cup of tea
Ordinarily I try to see the best in a game. This one made it pretty tough.
I had high hopes for it when I purchased it and quickly became disappointed.
I found it redundant, repetitive and lacking in many ways. The same HOS were repeated as were some of the puzzles with minor changes. To the point of becoming irksome.
The story line was - weird and didn't have much in between the middle and the end and there was a lot of chasing around with no interactive map.
I do not recommend this game.

This is a fun adventure game with a good mix of HOS, mini games and finding objects to use. Also, this is not a dark or spooky evil run amok story.
There is running back and forth which I didn't mind. This game made sense and the few times I was stumped a good think got me where I needed to go. This game also did a good job of unfolding the story.
All in all the story was good, graphics good and hard enough to make you think without being frustrated.
A great buy.

Didn't like it...
To tell you the truth I didn't like this game at all...the only thing that was okay about it was the length of the game, which wasn't bad. The rest of the game was boring, creepy, and totally corny. I wouldn't recommend this game.
