Sacra Terra: Angelic Night
Another Great Game
The very first HOG I ever played was The Treasures of Mystery Island: Ghost Ship by this same group. It's been a long time since I played that, though, so I had forgotten how great this group's games are until I started to play this one. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is always interesting and the music and ambient sounds are awesome. The cutaway scenes are also really well done, almost seeming cinemagraphic at times. I loved the fact that there were so many different locations and rooms to explore which meant that the game was by no means short (probably 4.5-5 hours). The only criticism#and it's a little one at best# is that I didn't think there twas much complexity in terms of figuring out what to do with the various inventory objects #e.g., not a lot of contemplating what to do next required). In the end, it is definitely worth the money.

A 10 in My Book
This is a really enjoyable game. There is a lot of back and forth but solving each dilema was fun. Would like to see more of these types of games. My only con was that at times the screen is too dark.

The graphics are stunning, the cutscenes are very well done, the music and sound effects are good as well, and the storyline is good-defeat the demons of the seven deadly sins. Sadly there were no voice-overs, but no one talked to you at all. There are two modes of play, casual & expert. There is also a map which shows where you are and areas that need action if you choose to use it.
The HOs were not messy junkpiles, but were effectively challenging with interactive play and at least one or two items that were more difficult to find; however, all are findable. The puzzles were unfortunately a little easy and doable. There are also morph items to find which I feel adds another degree of play if you want to collect them all.
This game was above average length for me and I felt has an excellent degree of difficulty and fun.

nice challenge in a lengthy game
this was a great game, and I don't bestow that honor often. I played this over a course of three days, and enjoyed every minute of play. the puzzles were not difficult or unique, but broke up the hidden object scenes and adventure pretty well. I wish I had realized there was a map before I got the seventh rune in place, but it was helpful from that point on, especially in showing where you still had something to do. the hidden object scenes were not taxing on the eyes, though there was usually one or two items that took a minute to find, and an interactive item to locate as well. will definitely put this in my "replay" file!

Having played many many games this is an average game, with an average story line and graphics equal to most. However to play this game you must really like the 'run of the mill' HO's as there is an abundance of them. Yes for me far too many which spoilt the game. Not one of the best games I have played and viewed against other games as a whole it would come out as 5 out of 10. For a 1st on all points try the 'Awakening' trilogy.
Nonetheless it is still a game worth buying.

Not worth playing.
I found Sacre Terra to be a very disappointing game. First the strange camera angles. Is my character 2 foot tall? There were too many hidden object scenes. The HOS were just piles of junk on top of piles of junk. Most of the objects were too obscure or small to see, or were just bobs of pixels or shadowy outlines in shadows. The storyline was confounded and wierd. My character had no real back story. The cursor was too sensitive and I had no real sense of what I was doing or where I was going. I picked up way too many items I didn't know what they were for. Didn't like it at all.

What an Adventure!!
Really an excellent game! The HO scenes were challenging yet fun! Lots of To-and-fro between scenes to complete tasks. We really enjoy that type of format! Good story line which followed nicely throughout. And to top it off, an ending that didn't leave you wondering "what just happened?".
Overall an excellent game! Highly recommended!

One of The Best!
This is one of the best games I have ever played! It is interesting, challenging and lasts forever. First game I have ever submitted a review for as I think is that good. I love games that challenge me and keep me on my toes and this is one of the best! Enjoy!

Rates in my top 10! Creepy characters with lots of moving around from building to building and room to room. Not overboard on the HOGs. Wish it was longer!

I can think of very little that I disliked about this game.
The graphics are superb, the music is nice and provides atmosphere, there is a lot of exploring to be done and the storyline was intriguing enough to keep me interested.
I would have preferred more puzzles, as there were hardly any, but there was still enough challenge in the rest of the game to balance it out.
