Maestro: Music of Death
Re: Ending - Perhaps a Sequel to Follow?
Not a bad game. Only had to use the walkthrough as I got to almost the end. HO scenes a little dark and objects were small and close together making them difficult to find. A strain on the old eyes. Never comment on sound because I usually tune it out. When the characters do speak out loud, the dialogue is on the screen to read. Hints for the locations were the usual - nothing to do here, try searching elsewhere. lol

A Okay Game
I enjoyed this game however...
I did not find the story line as engaging as many of the other HOGs offered by BFG. (ie the Echoes of the Past and Midnight Mysteries series). As well, I had way too many crashes to my desk top, at least a dozen, while playing the game. That did not help keep me interested. Rather, I tended to forget about playing it for days on end. Most games I play through within days. This one took me months to finish as I found it rather boring.
But it was very easy to complete once I got the game to run. If you enjoy a more casual game, you will like this game.

Nice and easy gameplay
It's the right game to play when you're looking for a relaxing time while playing.
The game kept being interesting enough to keep playing without really asking for high skills.
The story is easily going forward and one never has to think about where to use which item found. For me the story was just creepy enough to hook on and stay (well, a little less in the middle...).
I was positively surprised by the number of locations to discover in consideration of the game level.

This is my favorite type of game and I like ones that keep me interested without becoming repetitious or completely frustrating. In the expert mode I was able to progress steadily and solve the puzzles without resorting to asking for help. The HOG scenes were good and items were correctly named and recognizable (except for one rat that looked more like a swan!) All in all I feel the game provided good value and a few hours of enjoyable entertainment. I will probably also buy the sequel.

Can't Wait to Buy the Sequel
Reviewed after completing game.
I decided to play this before I made a decision on the sequel which just came out. It is a great game and I totally enjoyed it. Even though some took a bit of time, the hidden objects were all findable, if sneakily hidden at times. There seemed to be many puzzle items to find and lots to do so things moved right along. I found the puzzles to all be doable with a bit of thought too. I'm ready for the next one!

I clicked and skipped. But I enjoyed it!
After the game- they show you how many clicks and skips you had. I had a lot. :)

Solid Interactive Hidden Object Game
50% hidden object and 50% puzzles makes this game up. The graphics are good but not pretty or attractive to look at. I bought this on special offer for $3 and it was worth that to me. The storyline was good and wanting to know what happened in the end pushed me to play it through. Not replayable for me but a decent hidden object game to play during a dry spell. It did not require too much backtracking and wandering around either as the objects were generally in the three last places you had been - just a couple to go back more than 4 pages. Recommending as it is good to fill in a rainy afternoon.

Lots of HOs
This game was okay. If you really like HOs, there are a ton of them; however, I thought they were pretty easy. The mini games are also fairly easy, I found only one that I would consider above average. The game is not overly hard as you don't have to do a lot of "walking".
The graphics are above average, clear and crisp. The storyline and music are okay.
This isn't a great game, but it isn't a bad game either. It is a relaxing 3+ hours of play.
I am recommending this game since I gave it 3 stars.

Okay HO game!
I got this game because it was on sale for $1.99, which is a great price for a HOG! The puzzles are challenging and the graphics are great. The storyline is slow and lacking for my taste. This would be a great game for a beginner though! There are 2 modes of game play to choose from and the music is good! I would certainly recommend this game for someone who wants an inexpensive game to just pass some time!

Good HO game for beginners
This is really not a bad game. The developers turn out pretty decent games and this is no exception. On the plus side there is a lovely French period setting, coupled with an interesting storyline with crisp quality graphics, music and some nice effects. There are tons of hidden object games for enthusiasts, and some puzzles. The game is also on the long side, which gives you value for money. However even though I played it on the hard level, I found this game way too easy. There are endless hidden object scenes which help you find items, but the puzzles are on the easy side and not really challenging, except one with circles near the end which was actually pretty hard. It is however a game that many will like, especially those who prefer less of a challenge.
