impressed. It was fun, but not great. I don't think I even finished it.

Not as good as the competition
I thought this one was going to be really good. It was average at best in my personal opinion. The story just didn't interst me that much. Although, the way the story was presented was great. Graphics, artworks, animations, it was all relly nice. Didn't seem to be that many hidden object scenes. The puzzles were challenging and clever, not too dificult. I guess I just had higher expectations going into this one and its just average to me.

While I don't particularly REGRET playing the game, it certainly doesn't rank on my top favorite games. It was just... mediocre.

NOT A FAN
Played the demo for only 5 minutes and I find the graphics bad. I really would like the game but just can not see the items listed. I will not buy this one for that reason. Too bad.

Not my7 cup of tea!
Every review I have read says what a fantastic game this is but I have to say, I actually deleted it before I completed it. I found myself desparately trying to find something else to do other than play it, so what was the point.
Ok, so why didn't I like it? The strange thing is I can't really put my finger on a specific reason. I found the puzzles way too hard (but then maybe I'm just thick!), I just found that the instructions were confusing or just too basic. I also didn't like the fact there was no map.
I'm not a novice to games by any means, think I have now played around 500 different ones but I am sorry to say this one did not grab me at all. Sorry to be so vague as to the reasons but if you're an avid gamer like me, then you'll know, it's right or it just isn't!!

Kitty's Thoughts: 9 The Dull Side
Wow, I gave this game 2 chances and it still hasn't impressed me. 2 CHANCES. I never give a game that. I tell you for the people who made this game a 5 star, I guess any game is a hidden gem. However, I found this to be a fake quartz. Heck, not even that. Maybe it's a cracked crystal hidden in the garbage is more like it.
The think I would like to talk about first is the story. A war was happening in the past against the nine for the artifact. They used this artifact to summon a legion of dark creatures to help them fight yet they couldn't seal them back without an amulet.......... Wait, you're suppose to be this secret society and yet you called upon something that you can't even stop. I would be more interested if the amulet went missing or someone in the nine betrayed them, but that has to be the most lousiest reason.
Another thing I would like to talk about is the difficulty is soo off balance. I mean I don't mind hard, but the problem is that it's tediously hard. I mean I hate tedious puzzles. especially a line of them. Tedious games are mini games or games that require you to guess soo many times without proper directions on how to solve them. Note: You can be spending hours trying to solve it to the point that you get either frustrated or quit. I only have a limited time to play. When it comes to judging whether to play the game to spend hours solving one puzzle, I'd rather do something else like walking. To make a game challenging doesn't have to be tedious.
The one highest thing I had to say is the visuals. I think this maybe the only positive thing I have to say about the game. I like the music, the voices are okay to be the least. However, after playing soo many other games with intriguing. However, visuals don't make the game if it is not fun.
This is probably the second of the lowest. I don't find this game at all any fun. I don't feel shocked when I saw the spirit and the game is soo dull... That even when I saw the red spirit behind the whole in the wall... sure I flinched.... but nothing even set me up. So I was like... Oh look! and evil spirit is watching me. I was soo phased out and bored from the game from the get go.
This is a well lesson to learn. Never trust a game that is highly hyped. Always try the game out yourself. I have played soo many games that was hyped and not truly 5 star games. This is one of them. I really hate finding cracked crystals.
