Spirits of Mystery: Amber Maiden Collector's Edition
Awesome HOG Adventure Game
This was one of the first games that I had bought when I first joined Big Fish. However for some reason, I didn't play it until the sequel came out. Well, now that I have played it I can't wait to play the new one. This game was totally awesome!!! I loved the storyline, the graphics were excellent, loved the music. It was a bit of a challenge but not so hard that I got frustrated. The HO scenes were clear and not very small. I played the game through in a day and played the bonus content. It was well worth my time. I don't think I have enjoyed a game this much in a long time. It is one that I will replay and I would recommend it to everyone. There are 2 difficulty levels of play. Hints and sparkles if you choose. Good for both novice and expert players.

Can't go wrong playing this game.
I have to say this game was a lot of fun! It was very short though compared to its sister game (Spirits of mystery: song of the phoenix.) I have both games and both are collector's edition. I would recommend you not buy the CE for Amber maiden. The extras were not worth the money and the ending was poorly done (ended abruptly# with no feeling of an accomplished ending. Song of the phoenix has a very cute ending in the CE #I wanted to pull that cutie out of the screen I tell ya hee-hee-hee) Amber Maiden had A LOT of HOG where as Song of the phoenix had more of a variety of games, puzzles and hog. Both games are worth having in anyone?s collection that likes HO/adventure games.

I didn't have many expectations when I got this game to be honest, but it proved to be way better than I thought!
Obviously *points at username* I LOVE playing as a princess. Ever since I was little, like many other girls, I loved fantasy worlds. This game was so much fun because of that.
STORY: A kingdom is cursed and its inhabitants are trapped in amber by an evil witch. You, being a baby, are saved by your nanny and raised to learn of your royal origins at a later date. You go back through a portal and try to save your parents, the king and queen, and stop the evil witch. The story is a classic medieval fairytale. You have magic, castles, potions and everything you need to make yourself feel like a princess.
GAMEPLAY: Very smooth scene changing, you can chose difficulty. The journal saves important information, also the story. As a player I enjoy checking my journal, since I like playing from the perspective of my character. It's a classic adventure game with plenty of mini-games inside. I can't say if the game was short or not, because I playd it without a break and finished it in about 2-3 hours without using hints or skipping puzzles.
GRAPHICS&SOUND: The game offers exceptional visual quality. Professional digital painted scenes. The colors are vibrant and realistic. It doesn't make your eyes tired. The colors used for everything reflect the medieval times you're in. It offers animations for every cut scene and not only. The game has beautiful, non-disturbing music, the soundtrack being cut in multiple songs along the way, which I absolutely loved.
HOG&PUZZLES: The hidden objects scenes are quite easy. Now it depends how experienced the player's eye is, of course, but I found everything to be extremely easy to find. You also have some interaction between objects, you have to move stuff around to find some things. The puzzles were of easy to medium difficulty. You have some challenge in the game, but it focuses more on the adventure.
EXTRAS: You have a bonus gameplay where you have to destroy the evil you found at the end of the game. It's basically a short continuation of the main game. You also have the regular extras like music, wallpapers and concept art.
I absolutely loved this game and I'll definatelly get the second one

This game is a beautiful made game as all the games from the same makers are.
Incredible graphics, story line and challenging puzzles and HOS.
Is worth every penny of it as a CE.

By far my favorite game. Made it through without skipping any puzzles. The music is enchanting and the story is engaging. The graphics are wonderful. Can't say enough good about it. Some may want more challenge . . but this was perfect for me.
The Collector's Edition is worth buying. The extra play was very satisfying.

I loved this game. The HOS had a few extra objects that were hidden. The mini-games were just right for me not too challenging but not too easy. I was able to figure them out as opposed to skipping. This is one of my favorite games. I didn't want to take a break.

really good game
I bought this game after playing Song of the phoenix. I enjoyed both of them. Not too much back and forth and not that difficult to play. Good HO game. Worth the money.

Fun with Amber
This game is so much fun. You're a princess trying to save the kingdom from the curse of an evil witch. There are HOS, mini games and potions to keep you entertained on your journey. The HOS and mini games were excellent. The voice overs and cut scenes were well done. The background music was not too annoying. The ending was good. The bonus chapter was rather short, but loads of fun. It was definitely worth the price of a CE.
There is a journal which is helpful. There is no map, but you don't really need one.
My only annoyance with this game is they tipped their hand too early on the twist. I wish they had kept things hanging a bit longer.
Overall, I really enjoyed this game and highly recommend it.
