Red Crow Mysteries: Legion
At the beginning it seems interesting, so I bought! But it gets confused and I felt lost. I love challenging puzzles, adventure and HOG games, but this is discouraging... hints are not helpful, the inventory gets full and I don't know where or how to use. I regretted purchasing.

Enjoyable Adventure Game
I enjoyed playing this game after the second time I opened the game to play. The detail was not the best for finding items but after 'getting into the game' I was able to figure out what was needed. This game is the only one I purchased of the Adventure - Hidden Object Games that have come out this past week or so.
The graphics are OK, it reminded me a little of the old Adventure Games.
I liked the plot, with a little work this could have been a great game.

It had promise, but was too easy and too short.
Red Crow Mysteries: Legion
Developed by Cateia Games
Review based on full game
IN THE BEGINNING...
You have a gift that runs in your family, and can see things other can not. Now you are to be put to the test to see if you are worthy to defend mankind against Legion in the ages old battle of good and evil.
PLAY THE GAME...
Legion is purely an adventure game, but quite "lite." In each scene, you're told what inventory items you need to find, and none are difficult to discover. The puzzles repeat several times, and none are hard?or original. Cateia is on the right track, but needs to step up gameplay for us FPA lovers.
The graphics and animation are decent, reminiscent of classic adventure games. They are realistic but artistic. Colors and tones reflect the mood of each scene.
The music was well done, although I wish it had been more ambient and less melodic. It did not, however, annoy. Voiceovers were professional.
There was no map, and navigation was rather spotty. There was also no journal, which is pro forma for a FPA, and you will want a paper and pen to take a few notes.
THE LAST WORD?
The storyline was intriguing, but not presented well. Legion was presented as urbane, but was not at all frightening. Frankly, the game was far too easy and much too short. The ending was abrupt and blatantly points to a sequel, but I'm not at all sure I'm interested. Considering we get so few true adventure games, I'm disappointed.

Not my sort of game
Im a fan of games such as Drawn and Nightmare Realm and this hidden adventure game is nothing like that.
I wish i didn't buy it! It's not a real clear set out game and the puzzle are strange.You find yourself wondering a lot what to do next.I played this game for 3 hours and feel lost.i have just completed chapter 3 and got there with no help!But i don't think i wish to any further with this game and recommend you do the feel trial as it may not be your cup of tea either

with more work this could have been a great game MINOR SPOILER
I'm surprised the developers didn't put a little more work into this, could have been a good CE. The puzzles were so easy as to be laughable, I mean " order the numbers from 1-10" and they are already in order? Finding objects couldn't have been easier, they were in plain view. The dialogue was tedious and took forever to get through ,ok we get it- she's the most gifted person EVER. By the way, why do most of these games have women as the heroes and men as the villains? At least the length was good for an SE. I wanted to give it 2.5 stars but can't, so went with 3.
only recommend for the most inexperienced hidden object/adventure game players.

a so-so game
i didn't really enjoy this game very much. it is very challenging and i like a game i can just sit down and play. it took awhile for the hint and skips to charge. there is no journal or map. the hint button gives just that....hints. not very helpful. i played on easy mode.

it was ok
I love hog's but this one, can't give it 5 stars, although it was challenging, I need a hint now and then but really no help with hints on this game. Had alot of inventory items but had no clue what to do with them. Thought the graphics were good. I would not buy this one or play it again. Different strokes for different folks! You may like it!

I only played part of the demo before giving up. I found this game to be extremely dull and I don't like the graphics. A bit too cartoon like for me. I tried to skip a puzzle but the skip button didn't work. I had to exit to find a walkthrough to get past the puzzle. As others have mentioned, a journal would have been helpful.

After pulling my hair out during some of the chapters, the ending was not at all good. The puzzles weren't real difficult, but finding the items you needed to continue the game was frustrating. I hope the next installment is better than this one.

Way too short!!!
Great story line and difficult on some of the games. But way to short of a game.
