Urban Legends: The Maze
Excellent long game
Very well made game and much longer than most. Due to the fact that there are 6 levels, you can easily split the time you are playing this game.
Excellent value for the money

I bought the game expecting hidden object and puzzles and got what I expected and more. The storyline of the game was delightfully eerie and suspenseful. I'd be lying to say I didn't enjoy it.
It was definitely worth it.

Interesting, But Nothing Special
This game is a pretty standard hidden object affair, where you solve puzzles to get objects to use to get you to the next puzzle. If anything stands out, it's that you may wander for a long time and collect a lot of inventory before you can use any of it to progress in the game. The graphics were good, and the music and sound effects were not boring or monotonous. The storyline is rather disjointed, and it's difficult to figure out the big picture. The "Maze" is a reality show where ordinary people try to traverse from beginning to end. However, a number of contestants have gone missing and the player is supposed to find them. The game never makes clear why they were abducted - even at the end.

Worst game EVER!!!
I did finally learn to "try before I buy" and wow am I glad I did! So this review is based on the 1 hour trial but had I purchased it I would never, ever have finished it.
--Sounds and music so loud and annoying even at their lowest setting I finally just turned them off. (And I'm someone who generally has no trouble tuning them out!)
--HO's everywhere and while I really like clever challenges, these were mostly just junk piles thrown together.
--Constant to-ing and fro-ing. About 5 rooms with many, many MULTIPLE things to do in each...find this in room 1, run it to room 5, that gives you this, run it to room 3 which gives you this for room 2, etc., etc., etc.
--And finally, the THINGS TO DO. You could not go anywhere, advance in anyway in any room without "finding something first." OK, 3, 4, 5 sparkles? Click, oops you need a key, click, oops you need a lever, click, oops you need...there was SOOOO much to do in EVERY SINGLE ROOM there was no way to keep it straight. The hint button does tell you where you need to go and what to do, but what's the fun in that??? If a game is too "busybusybusy" to be able to keep anything straight in my own head, there's no point in playing. These games should be a challenge that makes me think, not an impossibility that just ticks me off.

It was ok
I only played the demo but beat it in under an hour. The graphics are really good, but the cut scenes moved so quickly that it blurred a lot. (Maybe it's my computer??). I felt like I was going back and forth a lot instead of moving forward and discovering new areas. The game was okay though, the demo entertained me for about 40 minutes. I won't buy though.

Great mix of fun, drama, and scary!
There were a few scary moments, in my opinion, which made me enjoy the game a lot more. Having to find the missing contestants is difficult when you have a 'bad guy' trying to make sure you lose.
The hint and the map are great, as are the graphics. I love the story behind the game too. I only hate that it ended the way it did and I hope that means we're going to have a sequel.

Best Game Played so far
On so many levels this game surpassed my expectations!!! The Map was an excellent gaming aid as it was a help without giving anything away! Definitely enriched my play experience. The storyline was great and also was able to enjoy unique puzzles and thought provoking challenges. Great Work!!!

Another Good One From Elephant Games
As usual, brilliant graphics. Very realistic, lots of great desgins, very clear,
A great storyline. The intro did start off a little boring, but the storyline got better and better as you moved on.
Once again, Elephant gives us a game with great Hidden Object Scenes. I loved the challenge of them, they weren't too hard or too easy.
The hint recharged really fast.
Would've helped for the intro to have a voice-over.
Took me a while to get in to the game.
The puzzles (with the exception of the lever one) were way too hard. I found myself sitting and waiting for the skip button,
While I won't be buying this one, it was still fun to play for the free trial Check it out!

Really fun game
First of all, this game had moments where it really creeped me out, and I don't really spook too easily.
However, I was disappointed about the ending. I don't really want to spoil why, though.
In a way, I hope that the way it ended is grounds for a sequel.
