Spirits of Mystery: Song of the Phoenix Collector's Edition
Fun Hidden Object Game
This is the best game that I have played here in a long time. Puzzles are great and not so hard that you cannot get them. Graffics are fantastic. Played it now 3 times and it is still great. Story line , good and the characters talking is like they are real. If you even want to play a grat game this is it...you won't be sorry

It's No Mystery Why This Game is So Great!
The studio that created this gem has produced one great game after another. Each new release gets better and better and they have achieved a new pinnacle of perfection with Spirits of Mystery: Song of the Phoenix! The graphics are lovely and every scene is filled with wonder and enchantment. The story is a simple fairy tale but the journey is a unique adventure that can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. What I loved best about this game is the way it unfolds graphically. You don't just complete a task, solve a puzzle, pick up a tool and get dropped into the next scene. You are rewarded with a visual treat! Castle doors open with a flourish, brambles wither and die before your eyes, mythical creatures and animals act out their roles, and enemies vanish in a puff of smoke. And this happens throughout the game, not just a few cutscenes! Even simple hidden object areas are filled with interactive extras that unfold gracefully. The puzzles are beautifully presented and integrated into the story. Several were completely new to me and others were a unique spin on familiar gameplay. I was glad to have a journal that kept track of my travels. The world is a large one and I did need my memory jogged a few times to so I could revisit locations and complete tasks. The dramatic music can be turned down as it does get a bit repetitive, but I thought the voice acting was convincing and really added depth to the characters. I don't usually buy Collector's Edition games but I do when ERS puts one out. Their bonus chapters are always a treat and this one was no exception. It is an additional story that has all the satisfaction of a good dessert! I can see myself enjoying this game again in a few months. That is of course if I am not too busy playing whatever they come up with next!

Lots of gameplay for your money. Puzzles were challenging but not too difficult that you want to pull your hair out. Loved the hidden object aspect of this game.

Perfect and worth the money!
I won't reiterate the plot line which is hokey but then that isn't why I play games. But this game delivers the goods in terms of nice HO and puzzles. And for those that like a good, long game, this is definitely well over six hours.
Puzzles were nicely executed - some easy, some difficult but you can skip them if you want. Nice graphics and HO scenes but I usually turn the sound off so can't comment on that aspect.
I expect some replay value in a few months.

What a lovely game!
Fairy-tale like (my favourite), charming. Beautiful graphics and sound. Not too dark. Not too difficult. Just one great fun and pleasure.
I bought full version after few minutes of playing. I can say - I always wait for such games. Excellent one!

Fun HOS/Adventure Game
Length of Game, just right. Worth every penny. I strongly advise buying this one. Not so difficult it is frustrating, but not that simple either. The Bonus finishes the story right in line with the main game. Perhaps only thing I would change, would be the Hint answer..."There is nothing to do here, choose another area to explore"..( or something close to that). small argh! I've played many of these games and I really really enjoyed this one!! Kudos guys!
