Theatre of Shadows: As You Wish
I found this game extremely awful, it was dumb, ridiculous, and incredibly hard.

10 minutes of aggravation
I'm not going to be reviewing this game as I couldn't stand to play it! 10 minutes was my limit. Cut-scenes were fuzzy and out of focus, every item was too small, nothing of interest to bring you into the story. After playing the Twin Vaccine game, which was totally engrossing, this game seemed draggy and boring. Not for me.

I couldn't play more than 10 minutes of this game. I thought it would be a fun game too, but it was rather boring to click click click and never make any progress. Jerriann was right about the "hint" button. Weird tips.
Sorry guys, but this is a no sale to me.

My new favorite game
I enjoyed this game so much! I don't know how long this game actually is because I took my time playing it over a period of 4 days. But, for me, it was a long enough game. There are enough areas to keep it interesting and a lot to do. The mini games are fun and I only skipped a couple of them which were the "boring" ones. Other reviews go into more of what is in this game so I won't go into all of that. I just want to put my comments down of how enjoyable this game was for me...I will play this again for sure!

Challenging, yet fun and addictive
This game is quite unique. It contains more puzzle than HOS, which is what I prefer. I played this game without hints and/or skips and I was stumped a few times. The use of items from your inventory is not always clear. This game makes you think carefully about how to solve it. Addictive, because I love the puzzles. If you want a challenge, I suggest you give this game a try.

Good game, long enough, beautiful scenes
Just finished this game. I've really enjoyed it! The game is quite long and there are great scenes to be discovered and explored.
- scene graphics are quite beautiful and interesting
- storyline is catching enough
- Not too much going back & forth
- Nice minigames and HOS's, though not too difficult
- movie scenes are really blurry
- the posessed man is really not as frightful looking as I think he was meant to be
- Maybe a bit more challenge in the minigames and HOS's would be nice
Over all, I'm not sorry I bought it and I spent quite some time enjoying this game.

As You Wish
Started out totally confused what to do or where to go and that was with the tutorial on. Hidden Object scenes were no problem but playing the games were difficult because of lack of explainin what was to be done. Caused me to hit skip which I rarely do. Overal it was fun but doubt that I would play it again even having it in my library of HO games.

good SE but needs some fine tuning of controls
The game is a really good length for a SE, lots of hidden object scenes, pretty easy minigames, lots of places to explore. Like the story and the artwork. If you are looking for creepy this is fairly light, but still fun game, and not too sickeningly fairy tale in graphics.
Very disappointed in the controls, however. The cursor often lags,especially in minigames, and in most gameplay if you don't position your cursor/game piece EXACTLY on the millimeter the game wants it won't work. Very frustrating factor in an otherwise good game, definitely lowered my rating.

Different type game
I'm only playing the demo and am enjoying it. It's different than the usual HOG. You actually get to do something before being thrust into a find object screen. Regarding the hint button, I found it helpful. I'll most likely buy it.
