Mystery of the Ancients: Lockwood Manor
Great hidden object game,adventure game.
I really enjoyed this game. It had a great story line and the graphics were very good. As much as I enjoy the hidden object aspects of these sorts of games, sometimes they go a bit overboard and there are so many of them that they can become a bit annoying, and interupt the actual plot of the story too much. Not this game though, they were spread out over the game and had a real purpose. The puzzles were challenging but not impossible. Overall GREAT GAME.

I have just finished this game and it was excellent, creepy yet compelling. It made me feel that I just could not stop and had to keep going on to see what would happen next. Hope there is more to come.

A lot for your money!
This game took a good long time to complete, which is great. It really flows well and is layed out very well. The plot is rather secondary, one feels that they are just out there solving puzzles on their own, but I actually prefer not to be laden down with the plot and it picked it back up in the end. The artistry was good imaginative and I didnt feel like I had played it before as I do in some games.

Loved the story line - it wasn't so hard that I couldn't figure it out but made me think - I liked the "having to do something" in order to find the object. It was just creepy enough to keep my attention!

Beautiful artwork! Challenging puzzles.
I loved the artwork in this game! The graphics in the hiddden object scenes were crisp and a good size, making it generally easy to find the objects without straining your eyes. Some of the puzzles were challenging and I ended up skipping them because I wanted to move along in the story. It would have been great if a player could go back and try the puzzles again after finishing the game.

I really enjoyed this game
It has achievemnt trophies you can collect. There are not too many HOS and some are regular (find the pen or hat) and some are shaddows of the items so it was not repetitious and there were other ways to gain inventory than the HOS.

Loved the story line of this game. Puzzles were challenging but not too hard. A few of the hidden object scenes were a little dark. Liked the way the game was sectioned off. The objects you found were, for the most part, used in the section you were in so you weren't running through the entire game placing objects. Once you moved to a new area you couldn't return until the game eventually linked itself together in the end allowing you to return to former places. Therefore, you didn't waste a lot of time searching places that were of no help in completing the game. I thought the ending was a little abrupt but all in all, an enjoyable afternoon of playing.

A very good game
As far as HOGs go this one is up there. The story line, music, graphics, and puzzels were excellent.

Added to My Favorites List
If you don't like HOS, you probably won't like this one. There are many of them, and I enjoyed playing every single one. Others have mentioned the graphics and artwork -- in my opinion among the best. The score was spooky in places with the cello, soothing in others with the piano. I absolutely think the music added tremendously to my enjoyment of the game.
It's a new game to add to my favorites. I can't think of anything that would have made it better.

I liked everything about this game except the occult portion in one room. That said there is a lot to do in this game. The graphics are good, it has a long play time, and a good mix of mini-games & HO'S.
I've played this game three times and I know I'll play it again. That's the greatest compliment I can give.
Play and enjoy !!
