Age of Enigma: The Secret of the Sixth Ghost
Not your usual HOS. I enjoyed it very much. The Big Fish logo was really a great surprise, and the one who designed it is very good. The story line is enough to keep you wanting to see what was coming. Graphics were really good. Lots of puzzles, most were just a tad difficult and there are some that made my brain hurt, but those are the best ones! The game play was excellent.

This game is hard to review. Some parts of it were very entertaining and well done, while other parts were very boring and frustrating. The puzzles were mostly easy except one or two that were extremely difficult to the point of being annoying.
The story was interesting at first, but then it just sort of replayed itself with every new ghost, so it quickly became boring.
The graphics are nice, especially if you like cartoon style graphics.
The game is quite short. Maybe 3 hours, all told.

The storyline is interesting - you have to free ghosts. But it's not a dark game.
- The graphics are beautiful, a bit cartoonish.
- The sound is good. I liked the voice-over.
- The puzzles are quite easy, but different from what you usually get.
- There is a map, but I didn't need it, since each chapter has its own location.
- There is a guide that helps you if you don't know what to do next.
It took me 2 hours to finish. It's really a refreshing, cute game.

After reading the most recent review, I was skeptical about this game. But I decided to try the demo, and when my hour was up I decided to buy it (on sale $2.99). I wanted to see what happened next! The game is about average length, not too short. The graphics are like Scooby-Doo (the original series) and so I loved them. This is not a HOG at all, or even a FROG. It is straight up adventure and puzzles. You do have to find pieces of an item, but it is not in a "hidden" setting among a junk-pile, just randomly scattered about in different locations and relatively easy to find. The puzzles are doable, some really easy others take a few tries. Oh, and one reviewer said that on the harder level that the active areas sparkled, but they didn't; they must have accidentally played on casual, or either this game has been updated. I found it quite enjoyable!

Don't call the graphics bad!
I can see what people are saying by the odd graphics; They are by no means "old" or "lousy". If anyone has seen Pixar's movie The Incredibles, the ending credits and opening scenes have an art style very similar to the ones used in this game. Everything looks painted; it's a nice change from the super-realism in most games of the same genre.
So yes, it's different from what most of us are used to, but anyone calling the game on JUST the graphics has no appreciation of different art styles.
Overall, I was quite charmed with the game, the art style being most of the reason for this. The game is fairly simple as a whole, definitely more for the younger set.

Easy, but enjoyable
This game was not a difficult one, but I found my self being drawn in to the stories of the individual ghosts. The graphics were good as was the music (which is a really unusual).
There are ghosts and demons, but no graphic gore. Each chapter is self contained so that you can play the game in between other games and not lose your bearings. It is on the short side, but I never got bored. The story has a satisfying ending.

a little off beat
This one was different. I liked the animation and the music. The storyline was quite basic but they added some twists so you went everywhere from pirate ships to pharoh's tombs to it won't let me use the word... somewhere very very hot underground that you access through a pentagram. Was definately different. No real HO's. More finding objects then using them. adventure style. Lots of interesting mini games. The hint system was pretty good if you needed it also. I used a free code that I had earned so for me it was an enjoyable, although a bit short even played in advanced, of a game that gave 4 to 5 hours of fun.
