Living Legends: Ice Rose Collector's Edition
I disagree with some of the reviews.
I found this game to be repetitive, and at times, boring. You do indeed keep going and back and forth between scenes. This is especially frustrating when you have to use the elevator.
The graphics were fine, the storyline was okay and the sound quality was also okay.
There's nothing outstanding about this game. It seems to be the same as all the rest, but enjoyable if you like hidden objects games.

OK Game, Bad Story
Gameplay is pretty good; not a whole lot of running around. Hints are lame, though. Artwork and music are good. I wanted to like this game, but it is really kind of boring. The story is really bad in my opinion. This is my first purchase of a CE, and it will be my last. You can't read the pictures in the strategy guide; you're better off with a blog walk through. Why pay the extra money?

Nothing new here, just the same old thing. It is fine for what it is, but I have to say I am bored with the same old games!

Bored with HOs
It's OK. My problem is that I am bored silly by Hidden Object Games. Same old, same old. Boring stories, dumb puzzles, etc. But if you like HOs, you will probably like this one. Beautiful graphics.

For some reason this game just didnt 'do it for me'~ like most of the other CE games do. I would say this is more like a fillin game inbetween the CE's. The sound track i think is putting me to sleep to tell you the truth and the quality of the visual, is makeing my eyes sore. I often sit and play the entire game at one setting~ and this game is makeing me pay for it. I would not have minded paying the 6.99 for the game~ as to me, like i said its a filler game...ok but not 'that' good. I would still sugguest playing it, but dont expect a 'great' game. Ofcourse there are not many HOG's i dont play~ so ofcourse i would say still give it a go.

Good Puzzles, Horrible Story
I enjoyed the puzzles. Most of them were just right for my level of challenge. But some made no sense or maybe I missed a clue somewhere that would have helped.
Poor interface. No map and journal entries were pretty useless. So lots of running back for clues that weren't entered.
I recommend not wasting time with the story. It started out ok, although typical (loved one has been captured, must fight villain to save them), but progression made little sense and then it just ended. Bonus chapter sort of finished the story with what I am guessing is supposed to be a cliff hanger for the next installment.
Worth buying for some decent puzzles but don't expect much more. Doubtful I will buy the next installment.

Pretty but no substance
This is a very beautiful game but way too easy.
I was disappointed that there was no voice overs.
However the sound effect (clicking/object finds) were nice and not annoying or ear piercing like some games.
I found the HOG and Mini games not challenging at all. It was a very standard game with the same 'find your love' plot and the 'Ice Witch Queen' has been done a lot as well.
This is a decent time killer but not much for a challenge.

Not recommended for many reasons...
I don't understand the rave reviews about this game. From the demo's beginning until I quit well before my time was up, I found this game lacking in almost every area.
The storyline didn't captivate me at all. The villain's nastiness was too easily overcome; her "powers" seemed weak. I felt no pressing need to rescue Edward or the frozen townspeople. There was no sense of urgency created by music, animation, etc.
The graphics in the sample screenshots looked quite well done. In game, however, they were washed out and lacked detail. The HO scenes were especially amateurish, and looked cobbled together from clip art.
The lack of voiceovers in this day and age is almost unforgivable. When combined with the puppet-like animation of the characters' mouths, it leaves the player detached from the storyline.
Lastly, it was just too easy. So easy that it was boring. I wouldn't buy the SE, never mind the CE. Frankly, I wouldn't even purchase this game as a DD.

The game started out with promise but became incredibly easy quick. I beat the game in about half an hour and was dissapointed, the image of the ice queen was laughable and took me back to the ninties. Overall leaving me to question why I payed for it and why everyone seems to think it's awesome.
