Tales From The Dragon Mountain: The Strix
A difficult hidden object adventure that I found very frustrating. On the plus side, nice art, interesting story, and the HOG scenes, when you find them, are good. On the neg side, clunky movement, no map, and the trick of putting things in your inventory together seems totally random. Worst of all, the in-game hints are useless. Like you're stuck on an in-game puzzle and the hint points to the puzzle piece you're stuck on, you can't figure out how to get the talisman out of the fire, and the hint points to the talisman in the fire!

VERY FEW HOS
This game was too short, had too much dialog, the hint button didn't work, and there were very few HOS with only a few items to pick out. I had to refer to the Strategy Guide, which wasn't built in, to try to figure out what needed to be done, since the hint button didn't work. Very poor game.

Hard Game to Play
I didn't get past the demo. I decided to trash this game. The hint button is very vague, not specific. There is no direction. Usually the hint buttons direct you. Not this one. I kept going back and forth in the same area, because I didn't know what to do next. Level of challenge, therefore, is off the charts. I found this game totally frustrating and not worth the purchase.
Course, that's me... I'm sure if you're more into a challenge where you are pretty much left "on your own" with no help whatsoever, this game is for you. Me.... I like a nice "RELAXING" game that I can enjoy playing. No muss, no fuss. This was not it!

This game looks interesting from the start but some how the more you go into the game the worse it gets. the little green guy and the spirit of the tree was so awkward and painful to watch . I felt like I was playing a child's game. The story was uneven and the characters were not even making the story anything more then a pain in my rump. the only reason that i did not quit then is cause I cannot start and not finish. Not even the bad guy made this anymore amusing as he was so easy to defeat that I can get a 5 year old to get him....
Sorry but if you want a challenge and not a punishment look elsewhere as this was worse then a whipping!

Not my Cuppa!
I liked the fact that there were multiple choices of modes of play, but I found it very 2 dimensional and well ... boring. The start is very interesting and then it goes flat for me. It is difficult to know what you are supposed to do with some things - like the picture in the hall. Just not on the same level as my favourites. I did like the fact that you could turn off the tap and save water lol
