Urban Legends: The Maze
Terrific game and super-long!
Wow! Typically I plow through HOS games in about 2-3 hours, but this took me a solid 5. By the end of the game, I even got a little impatient, thinking "Come ON, let's finish this already!" (In a good way, of course!)
Nothing really struck me as particularly bad or irritating--visuals were great, and the plot and setup was pretty clever. Overall, pretty highly recommended!

Unusual setting, very well done. The story had potential, but the plot was too undeveloped to keep me truly engaged.
Gameplay was extremely smooth. Just the right amount of Hidden Object scenes, which were generally relevant to what was going on and not too hard on the eyes. The puzzles varied in type and difficulty level. Movement via the map was very helpful, as the order in which various tasks could be completed was the biggest challenge in the game.
Overall, a good, solid game, well worth a try.

Really good game and very interesting. Had to skip 2 hard puzzles which means a replay for me!

Creepy Weird Fun
This game was quite creepy and spooky, but I quite enjoy that kind of thing. Game was very fun and interesting. It was unpredictable, which I quite liked. Beautiful graphics, creepy sound effects. Puzzles were good but a few of them were too hard and some not hard enough. Still I definitely recommend this game, especially to people who like creepy games.

A Lot of Fun!
I really enjoyed Urban Legends: The Maze. It had a unique graphical style, a good storyline and interesting predicaments. There is a wonderful map that alerts you where you need to complete a task, and you can click on the map to go to that specific area.
On the down side, too many of the puzzles are puzzles I've seen in other games. Some of the puzzles were unique, however, and they were great fun.
The story was excellent, and the gameplay is long. I bought it after trying the demo for 10 minutes, and I'm so glad I did!

Weird and Fun
This game keeps you going with lots of scenes, absurd situations and even a couple of frights (yes I jumped). Near the end I had to skip puzzles and use the hint button more often than usual (no biggie). Also great for those who enjoy being the hero/heroine.

Good change of pace
This is a good inbetween game, not overlly challenging but enough to make it enjoyable. The puzzles are a good range of difficulties and some new interesting one as well. The storyline was not really there, the graphics are ok but mostly grainy in the cut scenes, no VOs just some light reading. it does have an interactive map which is a huge plus and your hint button can be your best friend.

Reality show gone rogue
This is primarily a HOS and games, many of both. HOS mostly clear, games hard, I thought, and skipped about half of them. Great storyline. Good graphics. No VOS, but characters excellent. An entertaining game, except for one thing, which is why I rated it 4 stars: some of the HOS scenes had irritating background noises; i.e., a siren going off every two seconds. Very distracting. Made me want to leave the scenes quickly. Casual play 6 hours.

Fun Factor of 5!!!!!
Being a new member (even though I have been playing on BF for years) I have been playing a lot of demos before I buy.
This was one of the BEST! It was over too soon! I definitely will be buying this...
Preferring a bit of a challenge, which, if you use the wonderful map, lowers the challenge factor, I still loved it.
Hints recovered quite quickly, and the puzzles made you think. A must-try for everyone.

An interesting and absorbing game
This is a long and challenging game.The visuals are excellent,music and sound effects good. Plot OK , not too engaging but no problem. The puzzles are hard but not impossible and there are aids available if you get really stuck as I did sometimes. Use the map for generally getting around and seamless moves between locations. HOBs are interesting and relevant, sometimes a little too easy. The whole game flows and is most enjoyable,
