The Dreamatorium of Dr. Magnus
Storyline predictable. Gameplay way too short.

I have been playing hidden object games for years...I bought this based on the reviews and the sale....it was disjointed, and I could not stay with it. Had to keep coming back just to make myself finish it. I never leave a game undone even when I don't like it. Seems that most reviews are positive but for me I regret buying it but it was on sale...would not play it again.

A bit Slow ...
Graphics were colourful and detailed, very well done. The Hint button was a bit useless ... but what I found most annoying was the profound "dumbness" of the girl who after so many clues still didn't realise what was going on. Even after seeing the "photo" of herself she still didn't get it? I'm mean come on! Surely no one can be that stupid! The answer was obvious and thus the ending was obvious also.
This a Game for a raining day when there is nothing better to play. It was OK, but I certainly wouldn't play it again.

The graphic design is awesome!
The game goes flat very quickly, unfortunate.

Too slow loading and incredibly simple HOS
OK - I only played 58 minutes. It takes the title screen about two minutes to load and then the second screen takes about three minutes to load and the HOS items are literally spaced apart so far thatno challenge exists. I'm glad I played the demo first! Flush this one.

I'm usually the sort of person who makes excuses for poor movies and games. This one, though, really ended up being a waste of money for me. Besides the grammatical and spelling errors (I'm an English teacher (writing, specifically, on the college level) who wanted to go into publishing, and I keep finding myself yelling at games, "You could hire me and avoid these ridiculous mistakes!"), the storyline is full of gaps. How does the main character remain oblivious to the end? How are we supposed to make the connections between other plotlines that I'm not going to mention lest I let slip an unintentional spoiler? The presentation of this game had hole after hole, with confusing requirements for finishing each chapter, and now I'm wishing I had spent my seven dollars on another Nancy Drew game or saved the credit up for a collector's edition of another game. Bah.

The graphics were great and they were the reason I decided to play the trial version. The game did not flow easily. I needed to use the hint button too often to know what to do next. I did not find the story line very interesting. I played the casual mode.

Could do better
I have just played 30mn of the demo and was disappointed:
-the navigation is rather slow
-the loading is slow
-the mini puzzles wouldn't even challenge my10 years old nephew
-the story line is OK but nothing to write home about
-the music matches the atmosphere of the story line
I would say it is aimed at new people on the block who are just starting playing puzzles and adventures games, however it is not the best example of its kind, and for this reason I cannot recommend it!

This game was just ok.....not bad but not great either. There was enough to find and things to do to keep you somewhat interested but I wasn't enamored enough to want to buy it. I do like getting achievement awards which it had and looking for extra things like, in this case, was the eye of horus, so that helped in how much I liked the game. I would only recommend playing it if you're looking for something to do but otherwise, probably not.
