Love Story: The Beach Cottage
The Beach Cottage
I love this game. It's refreshing, beautiful, colorful and such a sweet innocent love story. A great change from the other hidden object games that are gruesome. This is a beautiful love story that makes me feel like I am in the story and is good clean fun. It is very interactive. I hope we can have more of these. I HIGHLY recommend this game.

An interesting hidden object, puzzle, adventure game
I liked the gentle storyline and wanted to see how it ended. The emphasis is on finding various items to open doors and complete puzzles etc. interspersed with hidden object screens. Sometimes I had difficulty finding all the smaller objects. However, the hint button only takes about 1 minute to recharge and there is no penalty for over clicking. Occasionally I needed to refer to the helpful walkthrough to make progress. As others have said, there is a fair amount of going backwards and forwards. The background music and sounds seemed appropriate. It is a game that I might well play again.

Very good but could have been better
I absolutely loved the first one. So I was really excited when I saw that a second Love Story was released.
Even though I enjoyed playing this one, I found it short and the story wasn' t as realistic (I mean he did live close to her father!) as the story of the first one.
It' s worth playing though and I really hope there is a next one soon.

Love Story: The Beach Cottage
I enjoyed this game. i like hidden object games. The story was okay but it was sometimes difficult to find the objects, which is good! Colorful and fun.

Finished Game Review
If you want a nice laid back game with not monsters, zombies, people stealing people for you to find, then this game is for you. Being a grandma (age reference) it reminded me of old slower times in life, when we stopped to smell the roses. I admit I am a hopeless romantic so this really fit the bill. I will most likely play again someday.

lovely game but is short and not hard
I loved the first game in the series and this fits in well. Graphics are lovely, mood is nice and is a must for romance fans. The interactions are good, hidden object scenes well done, not too many and a variety. A lot of interactions which is good. Puzzles are on the easy side apart from 1 or 2 which although was easy took some time. There is an option for no sparkles which was good.
The let down for me was the actual story! I don't want to give away the end but would like unique endings. And the ending made no sense as the father was living in the cottage up until a year ago.
It is also short 3-4hrs for me, a normal (HOPA - hidden object puzzle adventure) would be 4-5hr while a hard or long one would be 5-6hr. I got it with a punchcard so didn't mind that side of it.
I do like romantic stories, set on the beach and apart from the ending did it well. Would be lovely to see more of these kind of games if they made them a bit harder.

Nice love story, but very short
This is a cute story with beautiful graphics and sound, easy HOS and puzzles, and a good hint system. But, without skipping, it took me a bit more than 1 hour to finish; that's definitely too short for me!
I recommend it as a DD or for beginners.

Finally a game with a very good ending
You know it is a love story by the title so no one will be disappointed if they thought they were getting something else. Starts off a bit slow, poignant but it does build interestingly. More searching for particular items than HO scenes...if that is your preference you will like this. Puzzles are more easy than not. This game is carried by the story. I enjoyed it as much for the story as the break from the norm in catching villians/demons, etc This game has beautiful beach scenes that I really liked as most people do...

Love Story The Beach Cottage
I like this one, it has a charming story set at a beach cottage which Sandie has to return to after her Father passes away, my only complaint is that as with its counterpart game
"Love Story Letters From The Past" it is far too short, I would definitely have liked this game to be longer. Lovely background music with rather genuine beach sounds of the sea etc. An easy going relaxing sort of game that I enjoyed.

It was so nice playing a romantic game for a change. It was a different type of HO game. There weren't that many actual hidden object scenes or too many mini games. Instead you spent most of your time looking for objects to complete tasks. You do go all over the place. A map would have been nice but the Hint button was very useful when you couldn't figure where to go next. I did end up using it a lot.
