Mystery Legends: Beauty and the Beast
Pretty Game, Wanted to like it More
This is one of those games where things are just fine with the game itself, but the story just didn't grab me. You have 3 choices of difficulty. The graphics were beautiful and bright. There are many places to go, many things to collect. Semi-rapid clicking in the hidden object scenes blanks out the scene for a few seconds which did not appeal to me at all. The music was very soothing and pretty. The story is the age-old classic revamped a little. I would recommend you try it, however, it just wasn't my type of game.

A Classic Fairy Tale Gone Dark -- Arachnophobics Beware!
Beauty and the Beast was a bit short for my liking but it's still a solid game overall.
The fairy tale world had beautiful, whimsical settings to explore and I loved the addition of all the woodland animals. The voiceovers from Belle and the narration of the story was never obnoxious or over done. All of the characters met along the way (a few forest friends and the castle servants) had their own personalities although the inclusion of each was short-lived. I liked that the game didn't stray from the original Beauty and the Beast tale that everyone knows and loves, and that it included the moral that love is most powerful of all. I didn't, however, like the ending; it wasn't very satisfying and left a few loose ends that could have been dealt with (perhaps it is better sewn up in the Collector's Edition).
Overall, I would recommend this game to any fairytale lovers or anyone looking for a light, straight-to-the-point game. I would definitely not recommend it to anyone with a strong fear of spiders!

Fun Sequel to A Favorite Fairy Tale
I really liked this game, athough it could have been longer and I would have liked a face off with the Enchantress, it was very entertaining. The art was beautiful and the puzzles I enjoyed a lot. My favorite part was the face off with the spider, which was super exciting! And was there a hint towards the other "Mystery Legends" game with that key to the Opera House. All in all, really loved it and am soon playing it again!

Fairly straightforward not too demanding game
I played in normal mode (the middle of three) and took about 6 hours to complete the game according to the end stats. However this included some time when I left it running whilst getting a cup of coffee etc.
The hidden object screens are colourful and the objects reasonably easy to find, especially if you use the shape clues. Most of the mini-games are fairly simple eg matching pairs of items. The puzzles are mostly quite obvious and if you need help the journal gives you some hints and the map indicates where action is possible (and the name of the room when you run the curser over it as I found out towards the end of the game). I played with the sound off so cannot comment on the voice overs etc.
Overall I enjoyed the game but I wish the developers hadn't felt it necessary to include a snake as part of two of the actions.

Not as Good as Phantom of the Opera
I REALLY loved Playpond's Phantom of the Opera and wanted to love Beauty and the Beast just as much, but can't. The SE of Phantom was REALLY long and took forever to finish. The SE of B&B was not nearly that long and I felt cheated at the end because it showed the extra parts only available in the CE. I also didn't like the evil witch. She was annoying and so was the leprechaun. Who are they making these games for anyway?

Visuals, sound, storyline : Fantastic. Especially liked the characters which continued to speak after all the tasks were completed with them. But it would definitely be better if the theme were less dark.
