Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings
Pretty decent game
I was asked to play the beta test for the sequel to this game and enjoyed it so much I decided to buy this one with my current game credit. I had passed it by many times because it looked like the usual macabre themed games and I get really tired of all the doom & gloom graphics. I can say this was a refreshing change, the graphics were very good, light & airy and the game flows pretty smoothly. There's the usual back tracking between scenes but it isn't overdone. I did play in the casual mode to get a feel for the way the game flows but think I still could have done it just as quickly in the expert mode. The only time I needed hints was usually because the object was very small and tucked down behind something else.
I would have given the game 5* except for one thing - it just didn't seem long enough. From the amount of paintings on the wall, I was expecting at least 3-4 more before the game was done. I finished it in about 4 hours, taking my time in each scene to make sure I had everything covered. I read a few reviews in the Forum that said the CE had an extra scene the regular version doesn't but I don't think it's worth shelling out an extra $7 just for that. Other than that, it's a good game for all ages to enjoy!

Fun game play. Beautiful graphics. The cons: too short and easy. And the ending was abrubt without any explanation regarding the evil wizard.

this ho is very good. The story is good BUT too short. I would have liked to have more painting to search. The quality of the game is excellent,=sound color, action, I liked the mini games, mini puzzels.

lost souls:enchanted paintings
This is a fun game if you aren't the type that likes really challenging games. The graphics were good and, unlike some others, I enjoyed the music. The hidden objects weren't too hard to find and the mini games were not too hard. Although I did skip a few.
About the only negative thing that I can think of is the game is a bit too short.

The game was really fun and different from other hidden object games, but it was much too short. Just as I was really enjoying it the thank you for playing came up. Otherwise it was a fun game.

Fun, but Where's the Real Ending?
I waited until this game was the Daily Deal so I could purchase it for $2.99 and I feel it's worth that, if not a little more. The graphics are very pretty, the music is nice and the puzzles are fun and engaging. The problem I have with Lost Souls is that it started well with an interesting story but it tapered off badly. I was so excited when I played the demo, the first stage was so much fun, but then there was never any real ending. There are only five stages and no finishing stage facing off with the bad guy. Even replaying through this game none of the puzzles change. I am glad I got it but I'm far more glad I spent so little for it.

Not very challenging, but enchanting!
I enjoyed this game. If you like fairies and enchanted forests, mermaids, etc., you will love it too. The graphics are so beautiful and make me want to revisit the scenery again and again.
What I did not like about this game, is that it was mostly very easy to solve and it did not take me very long to complete. Also, I disliked the music, which is very repetitive. The story is nothing special and I felt that the ending was too abrupt.
Nevertheless, I recommend this game due to its lovely graphics and relaxing effect. I think this is a great game for younger players and for beginners.
