Witches' Legacy: The Charleston Curse Collector's Edition
I found that most of those adventure/HOG games are usually good with the graphics, animation, and sound, but most are just following a formula. There are very few that try to think outside the box or add anything new.
This game has added a little more with imagination. I loved the girl's drawings that added more to the tale. I was surprised by the imp. I like when I click on something randomly, there is a reaction. In all, it is better than average. I would have given it 5 stars, but it relied too heavily on HOGs and objects were difficult to find. I frequently had to use the hint button.
Overall though, a very good game.

Witches Legacy The Charleston Curse
I enjoyed this game so much. It wasn't too dark,you could see all the objects in the hidden object puzzles and there were some interesting factors to get to the hidden object puzzles too. The only thing I had against the game is, it was confusing because there were too many rooms and I got lost.

Wait For the SE
The game was a lot of fun. The storyline was intersting. The full orchestra in the soundtrack was an unexpected treat. The hidden objects were relatively easy. The mini puzzles were moderately difficult. But this was not CE material. There was nothing spectacular about it. It's a great game but I will wait for the SE.

Graphics weren't bad, hint loading wasn't bad, pretty easy to figure out, but enough of a challenge on the hide and seek.

Creepy, beautiful, and fun!
This game was wonderful! The graphics are beautiful - very well done. There were no "dark" scenes, where things were hard to see. Hidden object scenes were a little junky, but everything was pretty easy to find, and I only needed the hint button twice in the entire game to find a hidden object. The hint button also helps outside of the hidden object scenes and will give direction if you get a bit lost and don't know where to find an active scene. There is a journal with wonderfully animated pictures...an interesting twist in a hidden object game. You will use a little shoe leather, as there is a bit of running back and forth, but it makes sense in the game and there is little senseless running in circles. This would have been a 5-star game for me if it had included a map with the ability to jet you off to active areas, but the hint button helps a lot. The voice-overs were very well done, and the music was appropriate and a little creepy, which was perfect for certain areas of the game. I never felt the need to use the integrated strategy guide, as the hint button gave me all the direction I needed and the mini-games/puzzles were all skippable and many had the "reset" option as well. For my skill level, the games and puzzles were perfect - a little challenging but didn't make me run to the strategy guide for help. The game had good length-of-play. It took me a few evenings to finish, including the bonus chapter. The bonus chapter isn't really necessary if you don't want to play it, as the ending of the game is satisfactory, but it does provide another hour or so of gameplay and a bit of an epilogue for the main characters - and maybe even the chance of a sequel. Great graphics, good voice-overs, terrific animations, good story, good flow - an all-around entertaining and engaging game...and a little bit of creepy. Who could ask for more in one game?

Very Good Game
I played on expert level and I found myself needing to refer to the strategy guide several times. One of the few games where "no sparkles" means no sparkles. Hidden object scenes with interactive elements is a big plus for me.

A great game I really enjoyed. Graphics were lovely and the characters were extremely realistic. Music was fine but thats not normally something I worry about too much in a game as long as there's an option to lower the volume. The plot keeps your interest all through the game. It was a little short for my liking (only 4 chapters with a bonus in the CE) but still very worth purchasing in my opinion. I did have one glitch getting the chalk from the cat in the stables so I'm hoping it will remedy itself if I uninstall and reinstall which is usually the case. Overall an interesting, very well done game that was fun to play.

GOOD MEMORY EXERCISE
A REALLY GOOD GAME. WE GO BACK TO THE SAME HOS JUST A FEW TIMES, BUT THERE ARE SOOOO MANY HOS THAT AT LEAST ME, I CAN'T REMEMBER WHERE THINGS WERE. I EVEN GOT A WEE BIT LOST, BUT THE SG IS WELL WRITTEN THAT WE REALLY DON'T NEED A MAP TO MOVE THROUGH. I DID FEEL THE BONUS GAME WITH THE CE IS WAY TOO SHORT. I WOULD'VE LIKED TO UNITE LYNN WITH HER PET. LOOKING FORWARD TO A SERIES ALONG THIS LINE.

So far so good!
Played the completed demo, really liked the game.. Just purchased. The graphics are great. The HOGs are easy, but the story line so far carries the game for me. A definite try and if you like buy!
