Great game to play
Good game for most skill levels. There are different areas that you need to go to and after completing each area, it's closed off. That makes the game quite a bit less challenging as you know that you need to just work with the area you're in. That said, there are some puzzles that have a little more challenge to them than others which I really like. It doesn't take a long time to finish this game, either, so if you are looking for something for your plane ride, this is perfect.

Not very challenging but okay.
I tried this as something new, but it was a bit too simple for me. Sweet story line and characters. Good graphics.

Variety, fun, and interesting storyline
I really like these games. The challenges are varied, so it isn't a bunch of hidden object games only. Plus, the storyline is diverse and sweet. Not creepy or weird, just a fun fantasy story. Pretty girly with lovely graphics.
Overall, one of my favorite series on Big fish so far. Keep them coming!

Even better than the first two!
I recommend playing all games of the series one after the other. The story continues and, for me, this one is the best. The graphics are as beautiful as before. The game is rather easy but there are many interesting mini-games. There is no map but it's not really a problem.
There are a lot of achievements to get.
The hint system is good. The characters are funny. The gamelength is ok - about 3 hours for me.
All in all, a cute game for a great series.
I don't give 5 stars because I find it a bit too easy.

Good beginner game
- We found that most of the puzzles were very easy, only a few challenging, but a wide variety.
- Medium amount of HOG's.
- Very nice graphics, nothing inappropriate.
- Same music throughout, kinda reminded us of Willy Wonka, got a little annoying after awhile.
- Functionality worked great.
- Rate as T for some references to drugs/alcohol, otherwise this could of been a great game for a younger audience too.
- OK story line, I think it had some holes in it that could of made it great, it seems like it was written for a younger audience.

Lots of Fun
I enjoyed this game for the most part. The fact that it has no demons, ghouls, vicious monsters and the like is a huge plus for me. Loved the goblin characters and their environment. The goblin fight behind the tavern made me laugh out loud! The storyline was cute, but I don't usually pay a lot of attention as most are too far-fetched. It is heavy on puzzles which I don't mind because it makes for a longer game. The hidden object scenes were very interactive, fun, and at times a bit challenging. I would have liked more.
My only snit has to do with the puzzles/mini-games. I appreciate that some puzzles are easy, some are harder, but some didn't even have clear instructions. I had to check the walkthrough several times only to find that it wasn't always clear either and I ended up skipping a few. Also, in some puzzles the pieces did not rotate easily; it would take several clicks just to get one rotation. This got to be frustrating and was the one thing that ruined my enjoyment. If it weren't for the puzzles I would give the game 5 stars.
The game flowed well otherwise. I'm one who doesn't like a lot of running back and forth, but I didn't find it excessive in this game. I only had to check the walkthrough as mentioned above and to figure out where I had missed an inventory item so I could complete the game.
All that considered, I recommend the game, but beware of those puzzles!

Not as good as Moonfell Wood, unfortunately.
I hate giving this a lower rating than the previous installments since I really love this series as a whole but I can't help it. In my opinion, it's just not as good overall. Yes, the story proceeds in a natural flow but I was really hoping that it would wrap up only to learn that it's still not over! Three parts to a story seem to be the logical way to go and anything more than that just seems like the devs are milking it for all they've got. I don't know if I'm that interested in buying the conclusion as I wasn't that impressed with this installment.
I expected the puzzles to get harder and that's a good thing because they were challenging enough and I liked them. Maybe it's because I was so enchanted with the whole woodland experience in Moonfell Wood with its bluish colors and animated outdoor scenes that I became disenchanted with the scenes depicting frozen train stations and the many goblins lurking about. I don't know for sure but this game just felt different to me. I still liked it enough to buy it after playing the trial but even then it felt different and I waited until a half off sale to buy.
The pocket dragon is back but to a much lesser degree so that was disappointing but we do get to meet Ran the owl. He's painted in subtle shades of purple and it's cute when he goes to sleep after giving a hint. It shows him breathing with his head nodding off. Sadly, it's not enough to get me fired up about this installment and I'll be glad to see this series end with the next game. I'll still recommend the Goblin Kingdom because the series is great overall and offers the kind of gameplay that many people are looking for and this game offers it too.

A good game but ...
I didn't like this episode in the Awakening trilogy as much as Moonfell Wood. The graphics weren't as crisp and the storyline fell short.
There are mini games on top of mini games. You have to play a mini game to complete most tasks.
I was getting bored by the end of the game and was glad when it ended which is the opposite of Moonfell Wood. It felt like the developers just wanted to be done with the trilogy and move on.
The music was beautiful and I recommend this game on the basis of finishing the trilogy.
