Age of Enigma: The Secret of the Sixth Ghost
I'll preface this review by saying that I'm not entirely sure how I ended up buying this game. Maybe my children did it accidentally. I'm not sure. I just all of a sudden had it purchased, and I definitely don't remember playing a demo of it. But since it was now paid for, I went ahead and played it. So, my first suggestion would be to try a demo.
It's not an awful game, but it's not exactly a good game either. It's really short, and frankly I think it would be pretty easy to complete half of the game during the hour of demo time alone. It started out as intriguing and looking as though it had potential, but quickly got repetitive. Many of the puzzles are way too easy. A few of them are easy to figure out, but hard to get it clicked/positioned in the spot you know something needs to be in, occasionally forcing you to start it over. And there are one or two that are a huge pain.
It has cartoon-style graphics which are okay, though not necessarily the best out there. I don't remember much about the sound, so most likely it wasn't annoying, but wasn't fabulous either.
There are better adventure games on this site. My personal recommendation would be to pass on this one, but again, try the demo first. It's definitely not a buy it before trying it game.

Quick Adventure mainly for children
This adventure story line or plot seemed to jump from one place to another. Your goal was to free souls and I was confused as to why many were trapped, where they were trapped and exactly how not changing the past helped you get free. How exactly does one escape hades anyway? Predictable ending and very short on play time. The graphics were good but the sound was on one minute and off the next.
While I said this game was mainly for children be advised that the story might frighten younger children. I think anyone over the age of 15 might find this game a bit dull. Maybe I just expect more from a game sold by BF.
