Redemption Cemetery: Children's Plight
Evil Stalks The Daylight Hours
GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
When an evil warlock escapes captivity and passed your way, you find yourself in Redemption Cemetery. A raven becomes human and explains that you must save three souls by helping them save their children, in order to defeat the warlock and escape the cemetery.
The first interesting thing about this game is that it is a creepy one set in daylight. Okay, it?s not a bright and sunny summer morn, but it is daylight and the game doesn?t lose its creep factor as a result.
Marvellously drawn, as we?ve come to expect, this game is the second in the series, Children?s Plight offers the same essential style of game as the first. Each quest to save a child is self-contained, keeping gameplay within a limited number of locations at a time. The difficulties the children find themselves in are interesting, and significantly different, and that adds to the experience.
The puzzles tend towards easy, some are originals. They outnumber the HOs, but it?s a good balance.
HOs are less cluttered than in the first game of the series, with larger items and interactive items clearly marked in the list. This made them much easier.
In fact, I think this game is overall much easier than the first, and therefore shorter, but I believe it is still a good game and a good buy.
Once again, I give this game four stars only because I know that the sequel to this is even better.

Redemption Cemetery: Children's Plight is a nice sequel. The story is similar to the first one, but there is now an enemy to defeat throughout the game. The graphics and theme are still as creepy as the original.
The puzzles are more challenging in this one than they were in the original game. That's good, because they were too easy in the original. The hidden object scenes now have a twist -- some interactivity.
The game was about average length, and took me around three-and-a-half hours to finish. Every person plays at a different pace, though.
This is a fun game, and if you liked the first one, you'll like this one.

I bought this after playing the demo. I liked the puzzles and the hidden object scenes weren't too easy. It had a logical flow to it, unlike some games which have you going backwards and forwards needlessly. My only complaint is that it was a little too short.

A sequel that's not really a sequel
Review after finishing the game:
+ usual ERS Game Studios graphics quality
+ game length
+ good storyline (no different eras this time around)
+ riddles solvable without having to consult a walkthrough
+ shortcut to the cemetery...
o ...but not back
o Once again, adults did voice children.
- and so this game ties in with Part 1 how?
- Spiders! (not big ones, but several... at least they spared us their Mama)
- first little girl storyline ridiculous (rope might break through any second and I have to do mundane tasks in the village???)
Bottom Line: Still a good game, but the first one was better.

Like having Three Games in one! Each has it's own story so you feel as if you really accomplished a goal. This game should be placed among the first-class blue ribbon winners with Big Fish Games. If you like Hidden Objects with lots of Adventure, you will love this game!

OK game but surprised it was ever a collector's edition
I may be in the minority, but I didn't love this game. It was just OK for me. The level of play was a bit too easy, things happen very sequentially so just as you need to find something, there it is. The nice thing is there is no click penalty for the HOG scenes. The hint system is not very helpful when you aren't sure what to do next.

Fairly good sequel
The graphics are very good, the voice overs are barely ok, the music is okay, not intrusive. The storyline is made up of 3 vignettes in which you have to save the child so the spirit can rest, and thus defeat the warlock.
The HOs were good with some interactive play. The puzzles were also good, a little easy and all doable. There are 2 modes, casual and advanced. The difficulty was probably a little less than average, very linear play even within the individual stories.
The length was a little short having finished in less than my average time per game.
I feel the first game was better than this, but still not a bad game.

Redemption Cementery: Children's Plight is #1 game
It is a really fun game really, I wish i could play it over and over and over again that is how fun it is!

The Redemption Cemetery series gets it right. By breaking the game up into different levels, each with its own story logic and objective, I can play the game and not get confused by trying to remember where a given item can be used.

Challenging! But not too much. It's great value there's hours and hours worth of immersive atmospheric gameplay and I cannot get the music score out of my head it's amazing. If you love gothic themes as much as I do this one has plenty to satisfy.
