Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek Collector's Edition
Apparently I'm the only person who felt this game was worth only 3 stars. I found it to be tedious. Too much going backwards and forwards. There were far too many hidden object scenes and the graphics were a bit poor. Some of the items to be found were misnamed or given obscure names. For example, a crescent wrench was called a french key. Which is technically the correct name... if you live in Hungary, Poland or various other eastern european countries! (I had to look it up). The bonus game was incredibly short and ended abruptly and unsatisfactorily.
My suggestion would be not to buy the CE.

Optimum Hidden Object Game
I liked everything in the game; The design, mistery and movement.

This is one of those games I bought due to the excellent reviews, stunning visuals, music and how it sucked you right into the game! I usually do not play a game that taxes my brain but this looked like it could be fun and challenging on those days when I dont have to go to work and have time to concentrate! I have not finished the game but plan on it when I am on vacation. I played the full hour demo and really enjoyed it!

lot of fun
Relaxing game to play. The HOS are not all that difficult but do have to look good, The puzzles are good. I like that you have a map so if you are unsure of what to do next you can use it for help. Pretty fun game to play.

Started out as one of the best games I've played, but...
I'm tired of religion being picked. A wonderful game at first, but I got a bit mifffed when I realized the typical direction it was going towards. By the end of the game I was left disappointed...same ol' story.

This is one of the Best games I have played in recent memory! Why? Because all the elements for a great adventure game are here.. Interesting, engaging storyline, great graphics & sound (Plus voice overs are a big plus!), HOG scenes are easy, quick, fun & non-intrusive, plus extra points for not Punishing us for clicking wrong, there is a log book with a journal, map, photo panel & even an Objective/Goals screen with what to do next! The hints charge super fast, you get to talk to a few characters so you don't get that empty Myst feeling (no offence, I know they kinda started it all, next to Zork & a couple of others ; ) And the puzzles actually make sense with easy to find or recall hints never too far out of reach. The scenes are great too, they are all interesting & hold there own character. For example, there is a farm, boathouse, garage, church & more. There isn't alot of unnecessary back tracking which is good. And most all of the inventory objects make sense in their uses. Oh, & I can't forget the super cool Detective Pin-Board.. what a great, useful, fun twist surprise. Love it!

Great game. I'm critical of this type of game and have played many of them. I'm usually satisfied if they are just good. This one is great. Pacing is perfect. Story is intriguing. Good mixture of different game mechanics. Sweeping changes in scenery. The puzzles never feel tedious. Get this if you are on the fence about getting a game and you like this sort of game.

Best game played so far
This is a brilliant game. The best Big Fish game I've played so far, and I've played about 20-25 to date. So fun, and interesting, with lots to do, and the added bit of piecing together clues and photos on an evidence wall adds a bit more to an otherwise normal puzzle/H0 adventure. Its a really good length game too, took me several evenings. Definitely highly recommended!

This is indeed a great and fantastic game! Once you start, you won't stop until you solve the mystery! A real detective adventure game. The puzzles are good, the story flows smoothly. The HOs well defined. It is definitely my favourite game which made me jump a few times; I was so caught up in the story. I finished the game in one sitting: I had to know! I highly recommend this game.
