Hallowed Legends: Templar
Flawed story telling
I was excited to buy and play this game and it started out well with the usual summons for a relative in trouble. Great graphics and I love old building with dungeons, etc...however, THE DEVELOPERS MUST LEARN TO USE HUMAN EMOTIONS IN THEIR STORIES....to make them more believable. I won't spoil here, but come on, the basic premise of the story was totally ignored throughout and in the end! Disappointing. One other source of irritation for me in this game was the interactive HO scenes, some required inventory items to be used....ok that's new, but two or three times you need to leave and come back...without an idea to do so??? Not as smooth a flow to this game as I would like....well I hope I like the game "9: The Dark Side" better as it is sitting in my 'to be played file'
ps. The music was actually very good imo....

no continuity to the game we did not know why we were going anywhere
we did not enjoy this game at all. We had to use the hints too often because we had no idea what we were doing. Usually like these games but sorry to say this one will not be played again.

Not very logical
I thought this might be a great game but it is not. I like a game that gives you inventory and you are able to remember where things should be used because you have visited a place and know what you need to solve something. But without the hint buttom, I was unable to get anywhere. This is not fun--it is follow the instructions kind of game. The visuals are excellent but for the rest, no challenge to piece together a mystery. Bummer. There is no logic only a hint button that has you running around to do what it tells you. Sorry but that is just how I feel and it's not fun playing the game.

Could have been better
This is a well-crafted game, professionaly rendered artwork, good music and live actors. Well, except sometimes the actors become stills as though the developers ran out of budget for the actors. The story is marginal at best. The hint system is top-notch giving excellent clues along the way and charging fast. The included map is not well done providing little assistance. There is a lot of going back and forth (I wish somebody would develop a game that didn't require so much clicking around), and some of the objects used for some situations are laughable and certainly nonintuitive. I would have been lost without the hint system. I was disappointed in this game - such promise, such hokiness. (Is that a word?)

im glad i didn't buy the collectors edition
Look the game is ok! Not bad puzzles and interactive hidden object scenes! The game just didn't flow right! Some hidden scenes required tools you have collected along the way however you couldn't finish the scene because you wouldn't receive the tool till you did 4 other things.(which really wasn't always straight forward)if you play casual mode it has a built in walkthrough by hitting the hint button.it really just didn't flow and theres no other way to explain it!

Some Fatal Flaws
I did have fun playing this game. The storyline was good...up to the point where the guys hand over the Arc of the Covenant to a man with out-stretched arms.....like the Arc of the Covenant can be carried by one person. The HOS were good, a little grainy but okay. The thing that I do not like about this games HOS was that sometimes you had to use one of your items in the scene and sometimes you might not have that item till later and you can't finish the scene. Plus you have to spend time figuring that out. The actors in this game were horrible actors. I would rather have badly animated people than terrible actors. So if you can put up with what I don't like, get the game. If not.....?

I am not a big fan on having real characters in games it takes the game part out for me. I could never make a game myself but if I could I would hope to do stronger graphic and no people.

I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that for me this game just didn't flow and so I was getting bored with it so I ended up skipping mini games just so I could finish it. I am sure there are others who loved it or would love it but just wasn't that impressed with it . I only recommended this because of that... Glad I only bought the SE tho

Couldn't Hold My Interest
I got bored so didn't buy the game. So glad I waited until it came out at regular price. I expect something really special when a CE is offered but it seems that BF is letting in more and more fairly good games and selling them as CE's. If there were not CE's I probably would have bought it and made my way through it.
Not a bad game but couldn't hold my interest.

I could have liked this game quite a bit more
it did not have all those HO scenes in it
the story had been more well developed
the game itself were longer
some of the mini games were fun
some were much too easy
and one would not even allow me
to place the objects on it
so i had to skip it
This game is really for HOG fans
which i am not one...
