Dark Heritage: Guardians of Hope
Well this game kept me entertained for quite some time. The graphics were excellent and the cut scenes a brilliant touch. The puzzles were good enough to get me scratching my head at times - and even the HOS were ok. Overall I definitely recommend this game to all.

A good one
Nice graphics, well done HOS, interesting puzzles, good length and chance to use your memory skills. The only complaint are the sparkles for the HOS even in advanced mode.

really enjoyed this game
i had a good time playing this game. it wasn't too hard and i liked that. there is a diary, skip/hint charged in about 30 seconds. played relaxed, (2 levels) sound on low and expected for this kind of game. you are on an island after being summoned by your mentor. you are told that the chosen one is the only one that can help the island be reclaimed from the evil that has overtaken it. sequel?....i feel sure.

This was a very enjoyable. The graphics were beautiful.
The challenge was good but not too hard. The puzzles were the same level. I don't like demon stories so I did not give an excellent for the story line. Level of challenge was very good but not as hard as I love. Still very good. It was one of those games I could not wait to get back to play each time I had to take a break.

You Wont Be Dissapointed With This One!
I actually bought the CE version despite the fact that it really wasn't an outstanding game but this game had one of the best visuals I have seen in a long time. Hats off to the developers for the opening scene. They went all out by using real film and actors which really is the most outstanding thing about this game. I loved the cut scenes, sharp graphics, artwork, visuals and sound effects. All superbly done. Also I have to praise the storyline, being a fan of one of the great conspiracies that involve the mystery of the Philospher Stone, I was totally captivated. Dark Heritage is your basic Adventure/HOG with game features that include two play modes. Game features include a journal and a hint system that does refill quickly. Throughout the game, it is your basic seek and find inventory items, play HO scenes that are slightly interactive and collect some scrolls along the way to get the back story. It was a long game and I did enjoy the mini-games. Not overly challenging but well worth the SE price tag. Be warned, as there is no map, you have your journal/diary to help you and there is alot of back-tracking involved. As I said, really very basic gameplay which was a bit of a letdown for me but nevertheless, the visuals and the story make up for this. With all the work that was put into the visuals, I had high expectations but instead I found the gameplay too be a little predictable. However it is an excellent SE game which I do recommend for those who passed on the CE version.

not great but good
Graphics was ok, Has voice over. Music will put you to sleep. Not a bad story. The HOS can be a job to find them all but the puzzles are ok. The hint button works well and is fast. The skip button is a little slower but ok. You do a lot of going all over the place to find items to use. It is a little slow of a game but is ok.

This is a good game
I really enjoyed playing this one. I am not in for lots of HOS and for me, this game just had the right amount of those. Moreover, the HOS were not junk piles in which you have to look for a needle in a haystack. So, I didn't feel annoyed when I had to tackle a HOS... and in case of need, the hint button recharges quite rapidly, even in expert mode.
The puzzles were rather on the easy side; I would have liked them a bit more challenging.
The graphics are very good and travelling around the island is easy, especially with the very handy hint button which is quite helpful to point you in the right direction.
I also liked the storyline, especially with the esoteric and masonic references thrown in.
The length of the game is OK... playing relaxed in the expert mode, I took me about one day to complete, which is quite a pleasant way to spend a windy, rainy day. :-)
I don't give it 5 stars, because it didn't give me that WOW feeling, but all in all it is a very good buy.

I enjoyed this one. The storyline was a little different, the graphics were okay and I wanted to find the stone and see what happened next...lol!
The HOS were straightforward and although a few too many for me, I didn't mind as was enjoying the adventure. The puzzles were not too stretching either.
There is no map so you do have to try and remember where you need to go back to as not all the puzzles are solvable right away.
All in all a good game which is fun to play without being frustratingly difficult or too easy.
