Sable Maze: Sullivan River Collector's Edition
Where's the orb???
Game was good overall. Interesting if fantasical storyline. Map takes you places, but doesn't tell you where there are things to accomplish. Played the bonus chapter, which had a sort of slowed down pace from rest of the game.
Got to the very end, but NO ORB!! HOS where it was supposed to be located never highlighted, so I could not get it. Very disappointing ending, so I abandoned the game.

I played about 40 mins of the demo before I deleted. I was just bored!
The graphics were grainy and dark, the puzzles were not challenging and all the same as we have seen so many times in other games. The HOS were okay and were interactive but again easy.
Not for me I'm afraid.

This game is not worth the price of the collector's edition. The graphics are grainy, the action slow and the maze is a joke as is the ending. It is a long game and the HO'S are inter-active but that's it. I forced myself to finish it. What a let down.
Obviously others thought differently. Oh well !!

This is a game for children. Adults this is a yawn fest!
Not a game for adults, just way to simple. Have no idea why there is a strategy guide. I rated two of the four as ok. I used the hint button just to move as quickly as possible through the HO scenes as fast as possible huge yawn factor. There needs to be a challenge level rating on these games. I'm just getting tired of these HO games that are thrown together for the quick buck. Apparently that is the big seller on this site so that is why there is 25(+or-) new HO games per month. The key contributors have me dumbfound here. Based on my skill level I do not recommend this game.

If you have Motion Sickness - Beware!
Those fireflies (or lightening bugs, depending on where you live) - what a nightmare for me. The demo I was able to play was fun. The graphics and cutscenes were great. The level of challenge was good. Had a nice map and SG. But . . . flying around the hint button in the lower right corner were these fireflies and they flew constantly. They just never stopped. I started feeling motion sickness from them. I tried to ignore it but it kept getting worse, to the point that I HAD to stop playing. If it wasn't for those dadgum fireflies I would have bought the game as I was really liking everything else. But because the fireflies made me sick to my stomach and dizzy, I give the game 2 stars. If not for the fireflies, I would have given it 4 stars.
One other criticism, which is really very minor, is the voice of the therapist sounds very mechanical. It can be overlooked though.
If you suffer from motion sickness be sure to demo before you buy.

Extremely plain stupid
just illogical. cut a net with a lobster. put a lantern to a stick besides a campfire in order to light the lantern instead of using the stick on the fire to get it on fire and then light the lantern. and so on and so on... this ain't no fun, this is waste of time. not even the hint works correctly. in some situations he drives you back and forth between two screens. and - worst of all - no wide screen correction. i do not recommend this game.

this game was so irritating that the story got lost
always going back through the whole game and still couldn't find where you were suppose to go!!! I have bought & played over 300 BFG's but this one really got my blood pressure up & constantly putting me in a bad mood. I would have stopped playing except that I feel it's my duty to play a game to the end since I paid for it, but this one I came close to deleting it off my computer. don't waste your time!!!

Hated This Game
I brought the full Collectors Edition and I was really sadden to learn that this really, really sucked.
The start of the game, is a cut scene with a voice over that left much to be desired. I skipped it, good thing there was a skip button.
The hint button with the fireflies around it was really distracting. Every hidden object scene was made worse because my eyes would always look at the hint button instead of trying to find the objects.
Hated the fact that the Trees were evil. Tress are not evil, why would the game creators come up with this idea! I am not impressed.
The price of $9.99 is what drew me in, I wish I had passed, there are way better things to spend $10 on then this game.
I give this game a really big pass.
