Not a bad game just not for me. Lots of reading to do, no voice over. Graphics are good and music is not bad. Lots of running around but with some flow to the game. The HOS are easy. My biggest problem is the hint button is worthless. No map. You do have other things to find which makes for more fun. Just a lot going on.

I was so hesitant about trying this game but I am so glad that I did. The graphics are wonderful and the story is exciting. I didn't even miss that there weren't any voice-overs. The whole game is very interactive, even HOS. Puzzles weren't too hard but interesting. The map indicates available actions but does not allow for travel. The Hint also states the next available action. Really, the best part is the way the plot is so integrated with gameplay. You also get to collect origami as you go. Was pleasantly surprised how well this game was put together. Only wish it had been longer.Glad I played this one before "In the End", next on my list.

A really great HOA! Loved the artwork!
I started playing the demo for the second installment to this game and loved it. But before buying and playing the full version I decided to start from the beginning of the story and I purchased this. I really enjoyed the way this game unfolded and how involved you really are in the game, down to opening and reading a letter in an envelope and lighting the birthday candles on a cake yourself at the end of the game. I really loved those little extra things. I also really enjoyed the different types of artwork all throughout the game; some parts looked hand drawn or painted painted, others scenes looked drawn by a child, and some of the landscape scenes were beautifully computer generated pieces... it was definitely cool the way they mixed it up and with some of the scribbly, little kid drawings, it really made you feel like the little girl Emily was a real part of the game.
The HOS weren't in an overabundance, which is a plus for me as at times they can become quite tedious and boring when there are too many. The mini games and puzzles weren't too challenging, but they were still fun to play and figure out, even if you didn't need to put a lot of thought into them.
Overall I'd give this game a 4.5! Really entertaining and interactive. I just wish that it was longer!! I beat it in about two-three days, playing for a few hours each day.

A fun and whimsical game
This game is special. It reminded me of the Drawn series. The graphics are beautiful and the scenery and characters very whimsical. I didn't try this game for a long time because of the title - I thought it would be dark and evil. NOT SO !!
There are many mini-games and I only skipped one. I usually don't do most of them.
The game is a long length.
The hint button helps you.
The music is very quiet.
The HO'S very interactive.
I highly recommend this game. It is an older game but very timeless. Go for it and have some fun.

I Liked It!
I give this game 4 stars. I enjoyed the storyline. It is basically about a child's innocence being a strong energy source and being at its strongest between his 6th & 7th birthday. It has an interesting twist at the end, which I thought was great. The challenges of the mini games were not too hard. In fact, I think most were easy to figure out. The minus with that though is that you had to either figure out what you were supposed to do YOURSELF, or hit the hint button to figure out the game. And it DOES take away from your hint meter time. A map is provided to show you your current location and if there is a task for you to do there. However, it is not an interactive map, which I disliked, because there will be times when you are constantly going back & forth. That did not make it fun. The visuals were absolutely beautiful & sharp. You really feel like you are in that location. Overall, I think most will enjoy this game. Take a chance and see for yourself.
