9: The Dark Side Collector's Edition
Said the Guardian Keeper to the Dark Guard, "Behold the fallen shall fall again!"
Powerful and intense! I purchased the CE version and I'm more than half-way into the game, and normally I like to write my reviews when I'm finished, but I'm here to write that though the beginning was ho-hum for me, the game plan changed tremendously and started to flow like you wouldn't believe. Folks this is a must buy game. In the beginning of the game you're pretty much in three or four areas for awhile, but after breaking through some of the barriers, the game picked-up momentum. Kudos to the developers! The artwork is awesome, the sound effects and music are wonderful, repetitious but wonderful! However, the voice-overs really did it for me! Whew! You even hear diabolical laughter in the background from time to time! Absolutely strong peformances from the men--deep and bellowing voices; and the few women that were involved were equally as good. Love this game. You are the last Descendant and you must collect 9 Medallions of Power, plus you have an Amulet that detects the presence of sacred symbols! You have a journal with tasks, strategy guide if you need it, and a hint button. I'm playing the advanced mode and I'm having the time of my life. Again, I was fooled by the slow start of the game, but don't give up, keep pressing on and you won't be sorry! Some of your items in the inventory will rest there for a bit but you will get to use them. A comment appeared at the top when I made the wrong move with an object, which was: "One might expect the Descendant to know better." That got a chuckle out of me. Great interactive HOS, puzzles, you name it. This game's got it all! I highly recommend it!

I REALLY enjoyed this game, it had everything I could ask for, great story line, not too many HOGs, a cute character ( what happened to my friendly gargoyle- I never found out!), a map that allows you to instantly move to active areas, and great mini games
Can't wait for the next one!!!

HIgh quality hidden object/puzzle game
Beautiful, clear graphics, with range of difficulty and types of puzzles. Interesting story line. Not too much going back to previous locations to find something from way earlier in the game.

Ok, just finished playing the demo, I had to purchase it right after, especially at the special price of 6.99 this is a steal! It had me hooked about 10 minutes into playing. Graphics are great, artwork is wonderful. So far, not so much into the storyline but like I said I have only played the demo. I am looking forward into playing the rest of the game. I love these types of games!

Absolutely worth the money!
I loved this game! The puzzles were challenging for me, I liked the fact that the HOs graphics were well done and not smudgy, and I enjoyed the story line and voice-overs. All around good game, and plenty of play time.

I really enjoyed playing this game. The graphics were really nice I thought. I'm not good at puzzles so I had to skip quite a few of them even though there weren't that many. I had the sound off most of the time so can't say if it was irritating or not. The hint recharged in a decent amount of time, about a minute. I just thought that the ending could have been more spectacular. I was expecting something and did not get it. It was kind of abrupt and I didn't seem to get closure to the game. I mean the goal was accomplished but what I expected to see after I accomplished the goal was what I didn't receive. It was like the developers ran out of time so had to do something quick. Such a shame. But all in all very enjoyable play time. I thought it was a good length and the back and forth you have to do made sense and also the hint button really told you what you needed to do.
