Princess Isabella: Return of the Curse
Fun and very cute
I loved the new dragon you get to know in this game. He honestly was the icing on the cake! But as for the game itself, it was really quite pleasant to play, and makes for a lovely casual gaming experience. It was a little short, but I still liked it.

Return of the Curse somewhat disappointing ending
I always play in "beginner" mode my first time through, because I don't want a challenge. I just want a pleasant, easy game enjoyment. The overall play was wonderful, but I really expected it to play like the first game. It was "darker" and more sinister, which is appropriate, I suppose because of the story plot. The evil witch has stolen both her Prince husband and her daughter and she must rescue them. In the end, Princess Isabella distracts the witch and with the help of her fairy friend her child is saved. What disappointed me the most was that she couldn't save her husband. If there is a third installment, I'm afraid it won't be available for the same system requirements as these and I'll be left out of the opportunity to play it.

Good game for Kids
This is based on the demo. This game has great graphics and music. The hints are really good, but the map didn't help me at all-- as far as I got in the demo. That might change farther on in the game. The storyline is fairly traditional, but it works well here. This would be a good game for adults to play with children. Parents and grandparents should FIRST play the demo of Return of the Curse, to see if their child/grandchild is old enough to play it with them, and if the child is one who enjoys fairies, witches, etc...

Get the Collector's
At least, I assume that with the Collector's you'll be able to see the final scene. Grr.... Otherwise, even better than the first.

Sometimes a sequel just isn't needed
While I enjoyed the first in the series, I found the sequel to be too much like the first and not much of a change. The graphics are good, HOS are plentiful and the puzzles are familiar to many other games. I did like the added dragon as an extra guide in addition to the fairy but found that they didn't get their special powers quick enough to be useful in critical scenes. Not one of my favorites as sequels go.

Not a game for me
I know that many people love this game but it is not for me & my comments are based on the demo only.
I found the graphics overfull of detail & many items were very difficult to find as they blended too well into the background. The story itself did not grab me, I did play long enough to get out of the castle but had lost the will to want to know what would happen when I reached the forest. I really hated the fairy whipping across the screen every time I clicked on an item of interest.
The voice of the fairy was particularly bad but thankfully the sound could be switched off; the music however, was lovely.
The hint recharged after only 30 seconds but it was not always very helpful, it would often highlight an object that you knew needed cleaning/interaction with something else, etc. but didn?t give any guidance as to what you were required to do.
I did not find a rapid click penalty, I played in advance mode & there were no sparkles.

This is a very colourful game with a helping fairy. Just not my kind of game not to mention the constant help when not wanted is abit annouying.

Am I playing the same game?
This installment is a complete departure from the others. For me, totally frustrating. Nearly impossible to determine what to do next. No journal, no map, and the "nothing to do here" hints drive me nuts! I did buy it hoping things would bet better, but I've been at this forever and still haven't gotten to the second stage.
