Urban Legends: The Maze
A good game!... A GOOD game.
Yes, a GOOD game. Not an excellent game, not a great game, a good game. Longer than most, which I can respect, but parts of it fell flat for me. Especially the ending, which I was unimpressed with. The whole time I feared I'd have to by another game, that this would be a cliffhanger, and the ending just didn't do it for me.
Other than that, I'd reccomend it completely.

Held my interest
It was a pretty fun game, the puzzles weren't super difficult, but just enough to keep the game fun.

i like this game . not so hard that it is frustrating and not so easy that it gets boring. best of all it is longer than the average hidden object game. which makes it worth your while.

For a non-collector Elephant game,
I would expect no voiceovers. This takes away when compared to other Elephant games, but this is a better of the reality TV games.

This is a different sort of game for Elephant but still great and well developed.
Interactive map making it easy to move between areas (just wish it was labeled)
Exciting and well-written story-line
Fun and challenging puzzles
Gripping action keeping one interested in playing
Muddy quality of HOGs making objects very hard to find
Cliff hanger ending (understand the desire for plugging a sequel but it could have been written differently.)

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!

A lovely challenging game but the ending was not up to my expectations... yet a lot of things you can do and many puzzles make it more enjoyable

Middle of the Pack in a Sea of HOGs
As a story line, it was unique. You play as a detective who has to help four reality show contestants escape from the grips of an ostensibly crazed man. You will wander through booby-trapped sets on a TV lot solving puzzles and HOGs in an effort to achieve this end.
On the plus side, the developers gave a great map to help you determine where you are in the game and if there are any objectives left to complete in an area. Also, game play was very straight forward.
On the down side, puzzles and HOGs were only moderately challenging. If anything, when I found myself challenged with a puzzle it was because I was thinking it was harder than what it really was. Also, there were technical issues with the soundtrack dropping out regularly, which unfortunately took away from the game environment.
Net, this game is okay if you are looking for a unique story line, but may leave you wanting more in terms of challenge. There are other games that fulfill these qualities better, but on sale this title would be decent way to spend a rainy afternoon.

I have been noticing with a lot of hidden object games on BigFish have been hard for the first chapter or hour of game play, but become extremely easy once you purchase the game. The Maze was one of those games that really intrigued me during the trial, so I bought it.
I was happy with the sound and visual quality, but the hidden object part was way too easy. I felt like everything became redundant after a while, and I shortly lost interest in the game. The story line was okay.
Don't pay more than $2.99 for this game, any more than that it's not worth it.

COOL GRAPHICS, MEDIOCRE STORY
It was fun playing so many HOS during the demo. The perspective of the HOS graphics and the way the items were hidden was different from most other games and so made the HOS more interesting to play, even though there were a lot of them.
I nearly always skip puzzles, so I appreciate a skip option that fills quickly, and this one does. I did play one puzzle in the beginning (turning the wire segments so they connect to the correct colored lights). It was very easy, so I'm imagining the others would be as well.
The map is interactive and helpful. Otherwise you would be clicking through the scenes to get where you needed to be. The drawback of the map is that you can't get to it except by first opening the diary. Sometimes I used it to jump to a location, and sometimes I just made the trek.
I liked the music and the sound effects.
I don't know if this is a game I would pay the $6.99 for or even use a coupon. I have to think about that. For some reason, the story isn't as engaging as the artwork.
