Legends of Solitaire: The Lost Cards
The game is ok if there's nothing else to do. It's just like the original Fairway (2nd fairway was awful# or Fairie solitaire games.
The game is very short and very simple. I breezed through it meeting every challenge long before the level #10 hands) is up. The whole game was over too fast. I don't like games I buy that are so short, I feel ripped off.
Recommend if it's a rainy day.

This Game Is Too Much Like Other Solitaire Games of This Type
I'm in my late 50's, married, full time housewife, have 17 children and 14 grandchildren with 3 more due the end of this year. I play computer games at the end of another hectic day of cleaning our home, cooking & baking, doing laundry, yardwork, running errands, etc.
Although I enjoyed playing the one hour free trial of this game very much, I will NOT purchase it because it's too similar to other Solitaire games of this type such as Pirate Solitaire, Crime Solitaire, Mystery Solitaire, etc. ... one number higher or lower than the turned up card.
In this game, you find "potion" cards that unlock cards that have a padlock over them. Whoopdidoo ... boring! You get extra points for playing a card that is the same suit as the turned up card ... whoopdidoo ... boring!
This game is not a lot different than the solitaire games that I mentioned above, each of which I own, incidentally.
I'm looking for a Solitaire game that puts a delightful spin on an old Solitaire favorite or is something new and different altogether. This is NOT the description of Legends of Solitaire: The Lost Cards, however.
If you don't own any other solitaire games in which you chose a card that is one number higher or lower than the turned up card, this game would be worth purchasing, but if you're like me and own several similar to this, purchasing Legends of Solitaire: The Lost Cards is just a waste of money.

Meh ... ok to play if you're bored
I liked the fact that this solitaire game included lots of special items you could buy and put several different obstacles in your way. With that said, I can't help but think it would have been more fun/challenging to have a variety of solitaire games included instead of just Golf Solitaire. It got old after about 15-30 minutes.

Ok if you don't want a challenge
The opening voice over is ABSOLUTELY AWFUL, I quickly skipped that part. Wasn't impressed with the music, but then, I hardly listen to the repetive noises anyway.
Other players have pretty much described the game and it is as they have reported.
If you are just wanting a no challenge, repetitive game, no brainer then purchase it as this is what you will get. I have played solitare games before and find this one not up to par.

Wish there was more to this
I like solitaire games and have purchased a couple to keep on hand for when I want a quiet, slow paced game. I had higher hopes for this one thinking there would be more to the story part of the game but there was minimal story here. Lacking that addition to the game play, its just another basic card game, yawn.

Same as all the others
I like card games but this one is just the same as so many others.
It is a good good game lokking from the qualety perspective. Good stroyline and beautifull graphics but there is nothing new going on, no new tipe of challange.
But if you can't get enough of solitair games this is a good one.

Beautiful Music, Simplistic GamePlay
This is a children's game. Everything is simplistic and cartoony except for the Celtic music, which is beautiful. The intro is spoken with a strange, deep voice. This game is too boring for me, but I wish there was a way to download the background music, which changes with each level. Although I hate timed games, I do like my games to be challenging in other ways. This game is not challenging. No voice-overs like there are in Fairway with the anchors and that wonderful, temperamental Scotsman.

Decent game but way too short
This is a card solitaire game like the "Golf" card game, where you have to play one card up or down from the face up card on the discard pile.
Overall the game play is good, they throw various obstacles at you, and there are power-ups you can buy with the cash you earn.
The game is bunched into 10 games together, and in those 10 games you have goals to meet. Of course as the game goes on the goals get harder and harder.
My biggest problem with this game is how long it is, overall. Each game bunch is represented as dots following a path on a map. For the first ten or so game bunches (probably about as long as the demo would last), the dots are fairly close together. Unfortunately, after that, the bunches are farther apart so that there is less overall game play than is implied at first.
I do like the game play, but beware of this deception. I would get this game with a coupon or a sale.

The cards are still lost?
3 mode solitaire game that plays like Fairway -- move cards one higher or lower to the discard pile.
Casual -- more generous power bar fill, less money to shop for special abilities, most likely to complete the level
Normal -- less generous power bar fill, more money to shop, more likely to complete the level than?
Advanced -- ridiculously stingy power bar fill, more money to shop, you cannot put King on Ace or Ace on King. Good luck completing levels.
Worst feature -- if you do not complete the level (first level has 10 hands; I played in normal and never got to level 2) -- you must play all the hands over again. I played them over 3 times. Trust me -- you need to race.
So -- this is no where near as cute as the original Fairway Solitaire. The story, perhaps, is a bit more lighthearted than Legends of Avalon. I wouldn't know because apparently it advances between levels. You can choose different fronts and backs of cards -- all mediocre. There are achievements.
Not widescreen, not terribly attractive, not a game I need to buy.

NOT MUCH FUN
Game wasn?t much fun. Instead of an adventure/solitaire game, it?s just lots of solitaire hands. It is a vague story where the card suits turn against each other and the House of Cards disappeared. Evil then entered into the arena, followed by a wizard to locate the one person who could find the lost cards and save the kingdom.
Instead of creating rows of sequential cards, you remove cards one higher or one lower, drawn from a deck. Easily becomes boring. There are also powerups that can be beneficial or detrimental to your hand. You are given periodic goals, then play solitaire to achieve them. Graphics are passable. Music is decent.
