The Secret Order: New Horizon
I got this game with a credit after reviewing the reviews and watching the video. It was a little challenging, so you have to go slow and be sure to read the hints provided. I wished there were voices instead of subtitles, but it was still exciting. I liked the black and white sequences. The puzzles are a bit hard to figure out, but you can skip them if you want. I still managed to complete the game without looking at a walkthrough. I recommend this game! FYI: no monsters, fairies, witches, etc. This is strictly a no nonsence game.

look forward to more
I really enjoyed this game, it had a different feel to many others, great story and not a bad length, definitely worthy of buying as it is an SE, my only slight negative would be that the scenes were a little grey and lack-lustre, something the devs should work on for the next game, will certainely keep an eye open for it.

Unusual and interesting game
I would have given this game a full five stars but the graphics let it down for me, particularly in the HOS where the blocky and grainy look made some items difficult to spot. The puzzles also were a little too easy to solve. However, I loved the storyline, am glad I purchased it and would happily recommend it.

Ticks all the boxes
I liked this game but I thought I'd love it more. It has everything I like in a game:
- good length
- lovely graphics
- smart puzzles
- good hidden object games
- different locations/large map
though something was missing for me. I'd just recently finished the Templar and the Dark side, so this was a little different.
I just don't think the story was strong enough and didn't get me wanting to play. Usually I can't wait to steal an hour by myself, and if it's a good game, I'm thinking about the game when not playing. But I found myself closing it after 30 mins sometimes when I did play.
Overal smart game but just didn't grab me, it may grab you.

This was a fun game
I liked the storyline and I loved the hidden object games but there was a time when I had to resort to the Forum to find a missing item. I thought at first it was a glitch in the game until I found the answer there. I would recommend this game and I'm glad I played the full version.

Challenging Hidden Object Game
I really liked this game because of the mini games. They were really challenging and if you didnt look at any help button (which I dont like to do) it really got the brain matter working. Well done Sunward. Good story and visually very pleasant.

The game is ok. I like more voice over. The HOS were hard to find the items, they were ok just had to really look to find them. I just could not get into this game for some reason. Give it a try.

Absolutely Amazing Graphics!
Amazing graphics! The level of challenge was excellent! I was stuck in a couple of places (needed the hint button), but that didn't stop me from enjoying this game! Definitely a "must play"!

Review of Finished Game
This is a nice HOPA with an excellent plot. No occult themes. Good mix of HOs, puzzles, and inventory use. Each chapter is self-contained with about 5 different scenes in each. There is a map, not really needed, and an objective list. The puzzles are in the easy to medium range. The HOs aren't too bad, there are some small objects, but the hint button refills quickly. The hint isn't always that helpful outside of the HOs, I did peek at a walkthrough a few times, but if I had been more patient I would have figured it out myself. I would rate this game an A for storyline and at least a B for everything else. It wasn't particularly long, but I enjoyed it and recommend it.

This was a really good game, plenty of challenges, excellent cut-screens (especially the time-travel one near the end of the game). The story line was excellent, the puzzles were good (some samey some different, (had to skip on one as I just couldn't understand it all), but apart from that was good, The only thing was it was too short, I am sure if the developers wanted to they could make numerous sequels out of the game as they have a good solid nucleolus there. The reason I didn't give it 5 was because the game only took me around 4 hours, and I just thought it was a tad short and if I am being honest possibly a tad to easy in some places, the 'chess' section was a tad confusing if you don't play the game. Apart from that though it was a really good game. Hopefully there will be a sequel in the not too distant future.
