Haunted Legends: The Bronze Horseman Collector's Edition
What about Lisa?
I played this game with my grandaughter, and we were concerned about reuniting Lisa with her mother. This is what we most looked forward to in the storyline, but it was not addressed, even in the extras. We hope there will be a sequel!

Bronze star this game just because I love the color. Save the town, save the people. The art work was fantastic and puzzles not too difficult.

Too man HO piles!
Loved the story, collecting items, the little demon... but it felt like every few steps I took there was an HO pile, chill out on those and start adding more interesting, artistic and different puzzles please and also do away with that annoying pop up every time I move my mouse too far to the bottom of the screen I have to select continue.
Otherwise great game.

It was OK.
If you loved "Queen of Spades" then you'll love this, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. Lots of to-ing and fro-ing and not very challenging. The graphics and music were actually quite beautiful but they lost serious points when the same tune played over and over and over again, especially towards the end (just like in QoS). And I don't know about anyone else but a tiny little man with a really big head as the bad guy just isn't all that scary to me. Not scary, eerie, exciting or stimulating and certainly doesn't make you think. Really quite boring and won't be playing again.

Not Quite For Me
There's a lot going for the game. It has really nice graphics and fairly long game play. One of the problems I did have with it was the mega HO mini games. Don't get me wrong I like them, but not to the point that you run into one of them almost every time you enter a new area. I prefer a bit more diversity with other puzzles.
If you love a lot of mini HO's then this is your game because there's plenty and they can be challenging. In fact that was part of the problem. They blend things in with the darker colors so well that my older eyes had trouble locating them now and again. I like a challenge, and I don't mind clever blends, but I'm not too crazy about shadow blends with not quite as sharp vision anymore.
Still it's not a bad game....Just not quite for me

Spoiler Alert .. this is my first low scored game - and it's based on playing lots of games here. This game is okay - but lacks enough clues to keep the player moving forward .. once a puzzle has been completed and items found - there just weren't clear hints or visuals to keep moving. I had to rely on the strategy guide - completely. Frustrating not to figure out 'what next' based on items won or scenery. An example - there is a gear to be found in the water - however there is nothing to clue you to look even though the magnifying glass opens a small game - I felt like SO? I may not finish the game. I had stopped playing it right after purchase awhile back, but decided to go have another look. Still disappointed.

Your average, ERS cookie-cutter creepy "except not creepy" game
I wasn't expecting much from this "Haunted Legends" sequel, and I was right. "Queen of Spades" was much better not only in storyline but in overall entertainment.
"The Bronze Horseman" lacks individuality and looks and feels like all the other ERS games I've ever played.
- The artwork, as always, is very beautiful, but unfortunately, is very blurry, thus making it less appealing;
- Overall, this is a nice game for you to spend some hours, both the main game and the bonus game. It entertains, nevertheless, and the hidden object scenes too;
- Blurry artwork. It takes the enchantment of the locations away and makes the hidden objects scenes a "pain in the eyes", literally, because some objects can be hard to spot;
- The music is terrible, I must say. It sounds like all the other tracks that played in previous ERS games and it's always the same one playing over and over and over again. There's a line, you know...;
- Severe lack of originality and individuality. You play an ERS studio game and deep down inside you know you're playing the same game over again. The only different thing is the story, the characters and the locations.
- The worst villain ever. Wait, can SG even be considered a villain? Anyways, he's only there to compromise your job of completing the game. That's just it. You're about to catch him, right? Maybe not, since he always closes the doors behind him. That little monster! So, you gotta open that door and you do. Oh, there he is again! Gotcha? Maybe not. Because now he closed that OTHER door. This is it. It goes on like this until you manage to catch him in the end. Except you don't. It's going on like this for 4 games already...;
If you want to spend some leisure time trying to catch a imp that can't be caught and doing a lot of hidden objects scenes in-between, this is the game for you.
Entertaining, but that's just it. I will not play it again.
Hey, I'm all for reciclying, ERS, but it just doesn't work very well with games.

Too many HOS and not enough Hints
Should have read some reviews before purchase. Too many HOS and no Hints unless you were IN a HOS. I hate HOS as it is, but I put up with them for the puzzles and mini games. I wish Big Fish would feature more no HOS games in a separate category.

Easy puzzles and lots of boring HO screens
If you want way too many HO screens and easy puzzles, this is the game for you.
