For puzzle lovers only, info on puzzles, bonus play and extras. glitch in bonus so wait until update If you are not a puzzle lover I don?t recommend this game to you at all. I am and even I found some areas between puzzles boring. I really enjoyed all the other games in this series but thought the last game would be the last in the series as it was really pushing the plot of the same witch which you defeat in every game and keeps coming back. This is the weakest of the series by far. Instead of calling this game something else, as it doesn?t have the same feel, look to it as the other games, they have ended up watering down the series instead of finishing strong. This game is the perfect example of formulaic plot, sometimes you can get away with it if everything else is strong or excellent or at least different. Frankly the story, plot etc was really bad IMO. The only thing very good about the game was the puzzles, the graphics were washed out and seemed worse than the other games, adventure side boring at times. Both puzzles and hidden object scenes were repeated. I bought the CE as it promised unlocking of puzzles and ?game designer ? create your own game levels and play them? Both of which are locked until you complete the whole game including bonus. The game designer is 4 different layouts of one puzzle (move tiles from bottom to corresponding picture in upper tier, they are joined together with tiles beside them and you have to move them around to unjoin them.) but all you can do is choose what picture goes where! While this is far better than concept art I was disappointed as I felt it was misleading. There is only unlocking of 8 puzzles - -Peg solitarie (white knight jumping over black pieces) -Move numbered round tiles around (9 of them) -Red and blue ball in bowl to go into separate coloured bottles -Solitaire but it?s only one set which you if replay if repeated -Simple flower rotating rings (one in greenhouse) -Harder aquarium 2 bonus puzzles? medusa head simple lock puzzle -Move one tile, move the others simultaneously As the main positive thing about this game is the puzzles, they could have easily unlocked all of them. PUZZLES (spoilers as to kind, numbers in this review are roughly!) There is a variety of type ? arcade, logic but nothing timed. I found them all to be easy-medium apart from the arcade/non logic type. I loved the amount, variety of them as I?m a puzzle lover! (for a HOPA though, I think some are hard - hence the 4 out of 5 hardness.) The first puzzle you encounter the light up the lines one, if you don?t like it then you will be frustrated as that puzzle is repeated 10 times, (different patterns) I didn?t mind them as I could do them very quickly. 22 different puzzles in main game. Repeating puzzles and number of times you play them in total ? light the lines puzzle 10 ? aquarium puzzle 2, -domino 2, - peg solitaire 3, - click on pattern tiles to rotate them 2 plus another variation of it - bonus puzzle - fit items into area, 6 (they all are marbles of different shapes) HIDDEN OBJECT SCENES (numbers are roughly, I did try and count!) What was good was that there were three different kinds of HOS ? 4 different traditional scenes ? all of them you had to play 3 times. 2 different reverse scenes (put item back)? both of them you had to play 3 times 5 find the same items ? one was repeated Mostly static scenes (not much movement), some tiny and hard to see objects, defined enough but not sharp. Mildly interactive. There were 3 levels of hardness and you couldn?t switch mid game. The hardest had no sparkles, no info on puzzles, no skips or no hints including HOS. But they did have black bar tips and with reversed hidden object scene told you the objective. I didn?t feel the puzzles, HOS and adventure were well spaced out. It was a good length SE and probably super long if you are slower with puzzles. But the SE wasn?t 100% tied up and told you what you would be doing in bonus. But there really wasn?t any plot in bonus. BONUS PLAY (see earlier about other extras) I found the quality of graphics better in the bonus. It took me 1hr 20 mins (advanced, no hints, no skipping etc) but I think I?m quite fast in some puzzles so think it would take most people at least that long? It was all set in new area. HOS ? Three different traditional scenes which you play all of them 3 times. Puzzles ? Fit marbles in an area ? play that 6 times, there are four other different puzzles. I had to repeat the whole game as I got a glitch in bonus HOS (few others have reported similiar in forums) so I'd wait until it's fixed before buying. It's so frustrating this game as I love the puzzles, love that they tried to do something different with extras and it was far better than concept art and wallpaper! I just wish the HOS weren't repeated (which I hate) and started a new series with a different better plot. I do think it's an objective 3/5 stars. July 21, 2012
Not bad Not many truly negative things to say about this game whose quality is roughly the same as that of the other three in the series, although I found the very first one, Royal House of Stone, far superior in all respects. The intro [although quite standard], cutscenes, voice-over, are good and the visuals nicely colored. I didn't pay much attention to the music which, like always runs in loops, but is never annoying. No difficulty in the interactive HO Scenes, especially on the easiest of the 3 levels of difficulty as hints recharge almost immediately. The "adventure", ie: the useful items and their application, is rather standard, quite easy, but is lacking in imagination. The Hint system also helps you find your way if you get stuck. Quite a few minigames, not innovative but entertaining if not very challenging. I regreted to see that one [ the crystals] was repeated several times. The CE includes the traditional SG and the minigames for replay. The SG lets you play the first 2 chapters but gives no indication as to the rest. All in all, a strong impression of dj vu without any novelty. Recommended mainly to gamers who are new to this type of HOPA July 19, 2012
Disappointed in this one! I have played the previous games which I really enjoyed, but for me this one was not as good. There was a lot of tooing and froing, which usually I don't mind but there was no logical flow to it. It just all seemed a bit haphazard and became a little frustrating. The HOS were standard ones, not difficult with little interactivity. There were some interesting puzzles but the problem was that they were repeated..again and again, so they got very boring and I ended up skipping them. The bonus chapter started off well, then same thing again..repeated puzzles and repeated HOS. July 22, 2012
Bonus features not that good, wait for the SE This game needs a MAP. There are multiple locations and multiple rooms or doorways in each location and lots of to and fro between the locations, so bring an extra pair of sneakers. One of the visual effects in the game should have been the appearance of well worn paths on several of the hallways, courtyards and roads. This game also puts your memory to the test by showing you a need for an item and then not giving you the item until much later in the game. I thought this was a bit too extreme and cut down on the fun factor in the game. These were not unique or key items in the game but everyday things we use in all HOG adventure games, like a screwdriver, shovel, wrench, or crowbar. After an hour or two of knowing that I need a screwdriver, when it finally does show up, how in the heck can I remember where that little long lost screw is that needs turning. If you don?t take notes it can be frustrating, as this happens quite a bit in this game. The HOG scenes are good and have several interactive items in each list. There are sort of junk pile, but not too bad. Sometimes the items are not in the correct proportion to other items. I remember looking for 3 marbles in one scene and they turned out to be as big as bowling balls. Also some of the items don?t register when you click on them unless you click on the ?right spot?. HOGs are hard enough without the click recognition being incorrect. The puzzles and mini-games are good overall. I love puzzles so I am biased. The more the better for me and there are lots of them in this game. There is a skip available for puzzles in regular and advanced modes but not in expert mode. The artwork and atmosphere is very good. It?s mostly dark and gloomy but well done. If you are being lured into buying the CE just to see the Game Designer, don?t bother. The Game Designer feature was a big let down. It is where you can create one type of puzzle that is found early on in the game. In the game the puzzle is found on the Door to the Town Hall. The Game Designer feature gives you four puzzle layouts of the same game with various arrangements of the empty spaces and various images on the pieces. You create the puzzle then you can play it. It?s kind of fun but it?s no big deal. There are other games that have way better game editors where you can create your own puzzles. The length of the game is very good. I did not time myself but I played it over a period of two days. The bonus game took one and one half hours. I did not like that you had to wait until you finished both the regular game play and the bonus game play before the mini-games and game designer bonus items were unlocked. I think when you buy a game you as a player should get to decide when you have access to the bonus features. The bonus feature Mini-Games is another disappointment. It is only one version of 8 of the mini-games. For example, there is a mini-game where the white wizard token has to jump over and eliminate all of the black evil tokens. You are only given one configuration of the game, so once you solve it there is no point in playing it again. In other games that have allowed players access to mini-games they give you all of the configurations of the mini-game that were available in the game (for example the classic Azada). In other games you might get 5 or 10 different configurations to play of each mini-game, but not in this game. I feel like this developer has short changed the players and included just enough to make people think they are actually getting what we normally get when mini-games are a part of the bonus content. I am disappointed in the bonus content of this game and I don?t recommend the Collector?s Edition. The main game is very good and very long but the bonus content is lacking. Wait for the Standard Edition. July 23, 2012
Nothing new under the sun I have the feeling that some people tend to throw around stars much too easily. All right, this game may not be bad in itself, but it is just another sequel to another line of stories... and as is often the case with sequels in movies, sequels in games have a tendency to become repetitive and uninteresting. All right, there are a lot of scenes to explore and there is a lot to do... so the gameplay is OK... BUT, I hate it when the same HOS get repeated over and over again... AND, I hate it when the same puzzles to open chests or doors come back over and over again, albeit with a very slight variation. After a few times, you get a feeling of: "Here we go again"... and this is where you get bored with the game. It's like playing ball with an intelligent dog... after a few runs, the dog lies down with a look in his eyes of: "OK, we have had this one; what's next?" And, to beat it all, the dev's didn't even bother to create a new soundtrack for this episode. So, yes, I will recommend the game, because I cannot say that it is a bad one... but don't expect too much of it, especially not if you have played the previous installments. July 22, 2012
not quite the "usual" good graphics, didnt hog you to death and the mini games are different, even tho i hate playing the same kind twice in one game..c'mon, get an imagination! lol lots of back and forth but very easy...good game, go play :) July 20, 2012
too easy I found this chapter way too easy. the games, the HO scenes and where to use your inventory, all way to simple to figure out. If you are new to this type of gaming, then this a good one to start out on. I'll recommend it but not for experienced players. July 20, 2012
SE game would be worth the money I wouldn't however put out the money for the bonus content as it needs updates to work. I enjoyed the First part of the game and did encounter duplicate puzzles with the same solution but it wasn't easily memorized so I had to "RE" figure out the puzzle. The story line is kind of lame but I am not someone who really cares about the story line to make a game enjoyable. I would play this one again but not anytime soon. If you buy make sure you get the SE. July 30, 2012
It was okay I really didn't care much for this game. The puzzles got boring VERY fast. It was the same thing over and over and over again. I won't buy this series again. July 20, 2012
OK, But pales to previous Echoes games I was sadly disappointed in the storyline and speed of this game. I own most of the previous Echoes games and I have enjoyed them all until now. This games starts off agonizingly slow. I played for about 20 minutes and just couldn't take it any longer. I usually go by the reviews on a game before I play it and this one had really high reviews. Maybe the game gets better later on, but I just was so bored to the point that I was at that I simply didn't go any further. If you are a beginner, then you might enjoy this game. The mini-games I encountered were way easy. Not giving it a thumbs-down but not giving it a thumbs-up either. July 20, 2012
