Secrets of the Dark: Temple of Night Collector's Edition
SotD Temple of Night review
I was pleasantly surprised to find this game totally delightful. There is a nice mix of HOS and puzzles and a bit of variety in the HOS format. All of the puzzles yield to patience and logic and I found them of moderate difficulty, fun but never frustrating. The hint system is excellent; there is no recharge for finding the current screen holds nothing to discover, thus avoiding wasted time. The story line is entertaining, graphics are good, and the music, thought repetitive, tends to urge one on to progress. I would definitely try another game in the Secrets of the Dark series.

good game just too much going all over the place
Has voice over and good graphics. The HO are not that hard and the hint button works well. Fun game to play. Just get tired to going all over the place. Maybe CE is better than SE

not for me
I can't speak to the audio as I always mute. I have other games that have the interactive room changing theme, and it was okay. However, this one is a constant back and forth - changing the room to complete one action,then switching back to do another action. Perhaps I am a bit distracted, but this one just does't do it for me. I might get the SE, but this time, not the CE. HOG afficionados would surely like this despite the rarity of actual HO scenes. Yes, I could rely on the strategy guide, but still..am taking a pass on this one

The Strategy Guide didn't match the game play at all times
I play these games to relax, and when a puzzle ends up being too hard, or I get stuck and don't know what to do, I like to use the strategy guide. Unfortunately, the strategy guide for this game didn't always match up to the HOGs or the puzzles. There were a few times that I ended up having to skip a puzzle because the guide didn't give me the clues I needed. I was playing in casual mode, so it might be that the strategy guide was for the other mode.

This game immediately annoyed me! Way too much running around. The story did not flow. I had no idea what was going on but kept slogging around having to change from one scene to another. The collection of items never seemed to match up with what I was doing. The end finally came when the game wouldn't let me continue. It keep telling me to do things I had already done, would not let me finish a project. I finally quit and found that other people are having the same problems. A complete waste of money!

Secrets of the Dark/ Temple of night/ Ecliprs Mountain
This game was a waste of time. the people talk and their months didn't even move, what the ????. You had to go to a room then you pulled the Blinds down to change the room and then you have to pull them back up to get the room back. this went on and on and on. I was sick to death if I went into a new room. who ever thought that is was brilliant need to get their eyes checked and now. okay guys you have to do better, like the game Shadow wolf mysteries/ Curse of the Full moon and Bane of the family. these games were out of this world.

secrets of the dark: temple
I hated the game after about 30 min. Could not figure out what to do and the help button was totally useless. I would not recommend this game unless you have lots of time to run around and maybe accidently finding something that helps you.
