Maestro: Music of Death
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.

Not so much loving it..
I love games from ERS but not this one. The bad guy, coming out from nowhere with no stories to tell and no clear motive behind it... the hidden objects scenes and mini games are classic ERS, getting boring and over it after some time. I recommend you buy this game if you like the developer or have extra game coupon to use.

OK, but depressing
The music was annoying, and the colors were dull. Not a very attractive game. Game play was OK. I recommend this game if you are a horror fan.

Not very challenging
Overall it was an average game, the puzzles were not challenging and for most of the game you are moving back and forth within a rather small map. The locations did expand later in the game but they don't allow deeper exploration, most of the time you'll only get a HO scene or find one object to clear the area.

HO HO HO within seconds of each other
Lots of junk piles, upon junk piles. As you finish one grainy junk pile looking for fish, bells, pipes and treble clef here goes another for you to do - no breaks in between. Well I began making my own breaks by ignoring some of them and doing other things like wandering from room to room but eventually I must do them. If you like delving into piles of grainy junk looking for stuff just for looking sake then dive in fishes and go look for starfishes, crawfish and crabs that have no connection with the game. Showing the same scene over and over again with the same junk. I started playing this game and stopped, weeks later I played to the end just to see it through.

Are You Kidding Me!!??
I am the first one star review...are you kidding me!!?? I really did not like this game, but I am not a quitter so I played through. I never thought I would be able to say this but....this was waaay to easy. The HOS were grainy and dull. There was too many of them, but that is because the HOS were the main way to get items for you to use, about 90%. They would give you items in the room just before you needed it in the next area. Yikes! It was mind numbing boredom.
