Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart 4.7 5 157 157
nightmares from the deep its fun liked it loved it it was September 19, 2012
Too much back and forth This game had a LOT going for it, but I got tired of back tracking from one end of the game to the other, each and every little step of the way. Collecting multiple pieces or multiple items (like the coins) was fine, but then being forced to hand them over one at a time was just annoying. November 22, 2014
Just Okay...Nothing Special I sorta enjoyed this game but had some issues with it, though nothing too major. First thing was it is way too short. And it Seems that it really never went anywhere. The story was just so so, but it was enough to keep you interested just the same. A lot of back and forth, but there is a Map to help you with that which is good. The story made sense and really that is half of the battle. I thought the games were not challenging enough, but I enjoyed them. I never once wanted to stop playing, but it went on the back burner a few times to go to other games that kept me more intrigued. I will play the Expert version and them delete as I will most likely not play again after. If you don't have to pay a lot for it then sure! September 13, 2013
i will give it another go! i am fairly new to games-i played my first game ever(literally my first game ever!) just 8 months ago. this was one of the first ones i bought. i wasnt impressed. it seems overly dark and muddy/murky which didnt add anything good to the game. i thought it was boring and, to be honest, i didnt finish it. i played maybe an hour then bought another game. however-this game has such good reviews that i am going to try it again. hey-you cant all be wrong! maybe i will get into it this time.

yet another gloomy game I don't know about others but personally right now I'd buy anything with a bit of sunshine and fun in it :) All those Hidden Objects lately come with dark colors, morbid music, no color to talk about, et cetera ad nauseam. This is becoming boring. Even though the game itself is not that bad, it gets lost among half a hundred of other ones that look exactly the same. August 29, 2013
Great dev disappoints with poor gameplay TITLE?Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart VERSION?Standard Edition (demo) DEVELOPER?Artifex Mundi GENRE?Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure (supernatural adventure) STORYLINE?As curator of the Caribbean Museum, you've recently acquired the remains and relics of the notorious Captain Remington, scourge of the seas. You rather stupidly reunite him with his demonic amulet, only to have him reanimate as an undead pirate and kidnap your annoyingly helpless yet bossy daughter in order to resurrect his mistress. So, off you go to save her while she screams, "Help, Mom!" and struggles uselessly. I'm thinking you shelter her way too much. OVERVIEW?I really dislike giving a low rating to a game with such lush graphics and animation, but it seems that Artifex Mundi spent most of its time on that and very little on storyline and gameplay. And I just yesterday gave a five-star rating to their game Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden, a rating I rarely give. While this game is a visual feast, it is the Sahara for the experienced gamer, I'm afraid. GAMEPLAY?Standard adventure intermingled with lots of HOs and a few incredibly easy puzzles. Lots of backtracking. The HOs are partially interactive (use a machete to crack a coconut, move one item to find another, etc.). INTERFACE?Journal: Keeps notes and lists objectives. Map: Shows your location and areas where you have actions available, but it's not a jump map?and it should be. Hints: You won't need any. Specials: None in the SE. Strategy Guide: Not applicable. TECHNICAL?No issues. GRAPHICS?Stunningly rendered 3D backgrounds and objects. Good use of color and texture. Eye candy. CUTSCENES?Breathtakingly cinematic when they don't include characters. Characters are 3D posers with fairly lifelike movement, and lip synching which isn't lifelike. MUSIC?Music style and performance added to the storyline and mood of the game, as it usually does in Artifex Mundi's games. They always do a great job with the audio. SOUND?Ambient and game sounds very appropriate to the game theme. VOICEOVER?I'm sorry to say that the voiceovers were just awful. The museum curator came across as an irritatingly overprotective mother who reacted with shock every time she saw her daughter, but never reacted at all to talking undead pirates. Her daughter seemed a naive, sheltered, spoiled brat. Captain Remington was a dead ringer for Captain Barbosa from the Pirates of the Caribbean series. And his "crew" spoke a mishmash of low class British accents. The only awesomeness was the decaying guardian of the doubloon chest. SUMMARY?While I appreciate that Artifex Mundi is stepping up the graphics and animation, they need to remember they're writing games, not movies. Had they spent more time on the storyline, which was weak, and on gameplay, which was beginner-level at best, this game could have been a five-star game. As it stands, I can't recommend it unless you're home sick and feel like a really easy game that's full of eye candy and you happen upon it as a Daily Deal. And I can't give it more than two stars, and it only gets those because of the graphics, animation, and music. February 27, 2013
BACK & FORTH WASTE OF TIME I hated this game. I gave it a chance, I really did, in spite of the blue/gray/brown muddiness of the scenes, the childishly easy mini games, dreary HOS and the monotonous music. But after being given a map which was useless (it shows where you're at but does not allow jumping) and running back and forth one too many times, I uninstalled it asap and moved on. June 14, 2013
