Mayan Prophecies: Ship of Spirits Collector's Edition
It was a Fun Treasure Hunt!
I enjoyed it and played the bonus. May play again to see if I can get all the hummingbirds. I did manage to collect all the out of era things but that was by accident more than searching for them. Overall it was an enjoyable game and the map sure did get a lot of use. LOL

Visually fantastic, the tasks often illogical
Great concept of the game, fantastic visually, often challenging puzzles. What irritated me me however was lack of common sense in some of the tasks - to give example - in the bonus game I need to find an engine for the life boat, and where is it? Under water inside the submarine. Seriously? What engine will work flawlessly after lying under water? And no matter if it's a game or not, details like that should apply to reality.
And unfortunately I found quite a bunch of nonsense like that.
In spite of that, I still liked the game.

another great game
I like finding soles on ships what can I say and this one does not dissapoint. the only reason I gave 4 not 5 stars is some of the puzzels are really hard and I skipped quite a few, I am just not good with constallations and hate those puzzles. other wise it was great. map that takes you places, hint button that guides you through making knowing where to go simple. I don't use sound so can't rate that but everything else was good. great visuals, hidden objects were reasonable except sometime you have to be a bit too exact in where you place things to get it to do what it needs to do. otherwise, great game.

Nothing to do with the Mayan prophecies thou, but still a very good story line and gameplay.

I enjoyed my hour but Ho Hum.....
I was delighted to discover I could customize the settings. In addition to the normal, hard,or expert settings, I could put it on the most difficult settings but still customise the fast hint recharge..I like that there was a map. I like that there were things to find and I could play majong instead of hunt for hidden objects. I liked the puzzels,as they took a bit of thought.
I liked the rewards for not skipping puzzles and finding stuff.
It had a logical sequence but required a bit of planning to go from dedk to deck of the ship. Lots of things to do and find.
What was missing for me was the Ahhhh factor. That wonderful appreciation the comes from being surprised and delighted by opening the next scene to great imagination and surprise. Perhaps because this was an old ship we were exploring and it seemed a bit ho hum and I felt i had already been there and done that in some other series of games. My friends are missing and I got to resque the kid before he is taken over by evil. I mean where have we not seen that before.. I will still buy it, but not the collectors edition. There was so much I did appreciate about this game, just wish it had wowed me.

This was an awesome game. Not difficult at all but a great story line and lots of stuff to do.
The only thing I didn't like was that I did not get an award for using no hints on the HOS's and I did not use any hints. Somehow it does not calculate that right.
All in all a great game. Took my a little under 4 hours to play through the whole thing including bonus.

Getting all achievements isn't possible
Loved this game. Puzzles weren't too hard -- could even have been a bit more challenging. Like the map that lets you skip around. I did all the hidden object scenes without hints. There are 17 scenes, each visited twice. Achievement says you have to do all 34, but it only counts the first time you visit one. The second time doesn't count toward the achievement, not even on the second time through the game. Not that big a deal, but the awards should at least be possible.

I recommend this game.
The game is good with nice graphics and interesting story.
I've completed the demo and recommend it everyone to play.

Overall good rating for this game. I played the demo, so I didn't get very far in an hour, but there are several good aspects. There is variation on skill level including casual, normal (which I played#, and then higher, less 'help' modes. The game is complex in meaning there are several goals you are trying to accomplish-from collecting pieces of a mayan calendar to replacing pieces to the mayan idols so they release curses or objects you need, and solve the mystery of the ancient floating ship and crew. Also you are trying to release a boy; and find your partner and escaped prisoner! Talk about multi-tasking!! But the scenes are well designed with sharp graphics. The voiceover could have been a little better, but I rarely use that to analyze the game overall. I gave it a four star rating #not five# only because I get a little weary of all the 'trapped souls' games. It is getting to be a worn out theme. But taking in the graphics and challenges, it has the potential to be interesting!

Find your missing shipmate and prisoner after crashing into a ship. An adventuresome saga with beautiful Mayan cultural art, interesting suspenseful story, creative puzzles, well delineated and not overly crowded HOS, and beyond objects to find. Each time you encounter a HOS, you have the option of playing mah-jongg.
Put on your thinking cap to find solutions to creative obstacles you encounter. Hint circles an area of interest, but doesn?t hold your hand. Various achievements are awarded. Plenty of customization options from level of difficulty (four) to environment and effects. Plays in widescreen. A well crafted Mayan adventure.
