Behind the Reflection 2: Witch's Revenge
Old story with new puzzles
Yet another story of saving your son from a wicked witch....
Graphics were nice, but nothing brilliant - more of a 'sketched' appearance.
Each scene contained hidden items to find, with some being interactive with other scenes, and a few hidden object games as well.
At the end of each scene was a puzzle game - great variety here, although some I had to skip as I couldn't work out what to do. Instructions could do with improvement. The ones that I was able to varied from easy to harder. The puzzles were definitely what made the game.
The hint button wasn't a lot of help, and instructions were somewhat vague at times. Sparkles annoy me in games, but with this one there was just so many of them everywhere it almost wasn't an issue.
The storyline was so unoriginal and boring i totally lost interest in it. The game didn't run very smoothly, but was an okay length.
Enjoyable to play, although after a while it became somewhat repetitive. The puzzles are what kept it alive for me.

Another Fun and Relaxing Game
I know that there are gamers out there who want challenge-challenge. However from time to time, I just want to be about mindlessness. This game fits this bill. The graphics were great, which is a first must for me. The sound, I could do without. The same throughout and not very interesting. There a two types of hidden objects opportunities -- Your typical scenes with objects to find and the second type where you have to find several objects to complete a task. You could call these mini-game hidden objects. Speaking of mini-games, there are tons of them. Maybe too many. The good news is that they are not difficult and the skip button fills up quickly. Storyline, there is one but don't get to excited for it's a low key one. But for me, that's OK. Sometimes, I don't care what the story is, just give me something to keep my mind "off of the work" that I should be doing :). I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good hidden object game, with some interaction and excellent graphics. If you want something more challenging, this game may not be for you.

I didn't enjoy this game at all. Trite and hackneyed. HO games have come so far over the years yet this one seemed like an anachronism. It seemed to me to be a new game programmer's first and unsuccessful attempt at creating a game. I couldn't develop any interest in the story nor the simplistic graphics at all.

an excellent follow-up game
this is part 2 and as good as the first. hints\skip charge fast. there is a lot of thinking as there is no walkthrough but check the forum for the game and it answsers the questions you may have. i really had to think on this one, but not enough for me to give up and quit the game. just as the first the witch comes back and captures the son's soul in the mirror and as the mom you have to get him back. the graphics are great!!!! even some of the HO scenes that may be a little crowded it is still easy to see the items because the graphics are so good. played casual, no sound. was really pleased with this sequel!!!!

Good game for a break
Although there is a witch, it's not a creepy game. The graphics are clear. You have to find objects in HOS but also more generally in the scene. You have to assemble various objects to move through a portal. There are some puzzles, quite easy. The hint system is good. Clicking everywhere freezes the cursor. There is a good journal. You don't have to walk a lot.
It took me about 2 hours to finish. I recommend also the first "Behind the Reflection". Good for beginners or for a break.

Behind The Reflection 2: Witch's Revenge
Very nice game of HOs; the sound was very good; objects were very clear and easy to find. Just as I was about to buy this game; the entire game froze on me right after I put the Puppet's top body part together; had about 33 minutes left, but the entire game froze up.;
Fix this, and I will update rating to 5-stars.

Good game for beginners! Not enough challenge for me. I got bored with it. I would recommend it for beginners only!

Very boring game. Storyline was awful, puzzles were silly. Ending was extremely short and quick. Very badly made game. Worst I've played.

Not a great game!
When it takes me half the demo to even get out of the house - yikes! Also, I am NOT a fan of of finding and putting things in a circle, give me a regular old HOS every time!
I found this game very boring, and with no clear indication of what to do next. I didn't play the first one, but if it's anything like this one, glad I didn't.
I played this several weeks ago, and every time I scroll the list of HOGs and come across this one, I cringe!
I do not recommend this game, and one review says it all, her 7 yr old gave it up in disgust!

BAD GAME, BAD GAME, BAD GAME...I never give reviews, but on this one I had to. It was so bad I could not even finish the trial. Not a challenge. Not much of a game, even my seven year old got fed up with it....
