Sable Maze: Sullivan River
worth a try
Good game but not great. The graphics are pretty good. Very grey and appropriately dreary. I enjoyed the story, although nothing really new except that it takes place in a deserted kid's camp. There are few puzzles and they are short and simple. Not too many HOS, not too easy. There is a travel map but it really isn't needed. It does not indicate objectives or tasks and the game is fairly linear. The hint helps with direction if needed. Overall it's not a bad game so I gave it 4 stars as it deserved more than a 3. I recommend it because it's worth a try if you like this kind of theme.

another fun game with walking treas to boot
I enjoyed this game over all. bought the SE - hint button works so well didn't need the CE. got frustrated a couple of times because it kept sending me back somewhere it thougth I should be but had missed something in a different scene so didn't have an object I should have had. once i figured that glitch out all was well. anyway, a minor issue. over all fun, nasty, walking trees, good finding and reasonable games and you save the kids. I enjoyed it. I don't use sound so cant rate that.

I enjoyed this game, Everything was pretty good but I think it's one that I would enjoy as a gift, but not one I'd buy for myself! I think I'd play it a few times before I got bored! But I would get bored!

I waited along time for this SE guess I should have played the demo first. the story was good but the artwork was'nt, it was grainy and bland no eye candy here, maybe I'm spoiled by ERS and elephant and blue tea. I bought it, played it, and deleted it. not a keeper for me. I think you should try before buy with this one. on the up side the HO's were interactive and good combining with things and the hint button was helpful. the puzzles and mini games were fine. sorry I just didnt care for the scenery.

I thought from the write up for this game it would be much better than it is. I have played it all the way through and was dissapointed. Not that interesting for me. This is the 1st time I have said that I believe. Most games I love. It fits my 19" widescreen which is a plus. Very dreary storyline. Some of the HOs were called by the wrong name. I hate to search for a ragdoll which turns out to be a cuddly toy, a dog I seem to remember. Also others. Graphics were quite good. I never used the map to jump as the hint was good in directions. Puzzles not bad but have had most of them before. The game worked for me with no hic-cups. Some of the things you have to do, you have to find the right place to put whatever you have to use on it. If you like dull and dreary go for it but I don't recomend it. 1st time ever.

Don't waste your $$ on SE
I don't write many reviews but I will for this one because I'm sorry I bought it. The end was short, chopped and stupid. It just ended. I hate that. Why do they have to do that on SE's? I don't like to buy the CE's so much because the only thing I like with them is bonus play or extra rewards or some such thing. Not into the wall papers and endlessly playing mini games. Why can't SE's be done better with more cohesive ending? All I will say. Game was fine. Nothing really new. Good graphics and such. Just ending ruined it for me. So if your like me and care about that. Be advised.

This game left me wanting more.\it started off really well but for me it went down hill after the first hour. I always give a game the chance to prove itself, but Sable Maze just didn't make it.[for me]The cut scenes were well put together.H.O. scenes had just the right amount of difficulty, were crisp and clear , not a church jumble.Background voices/music were very nice.I played the whole game hoping it would pick up the pace but.......I'm glad I used a coupon and not a credit, it isn't worth the money. Sorry -but can't win them all.Beginners will love this one

Okay game but only just....
Overall not exciting but not a bust. Won't buy it but worth checking out if you're bored. Didn't like the HO scenes. Interactive but with extra steps. Hard to explain. Item listed might be in plain view but when picking it up you had to use it on something else to get something you weren't even looking for yet. Don't like those because then you've got something stuck to your cursor with no idea what to do with it. Just not my cup of tea. Also too pat, as in see a need, find a solution. Example, see something stuck and the comment is " I'll need to pry it out". Next thing you find will be something to pry it out. I'd rather work a little harder for the solution. Only hit one puzzle and it was not mentally challenging, just tedious. So this is a no go for me.

might be good for beginners
I'm no gaming expert, but I found this game too easy to be fun, and the story line is lacking in direction: go back to summer camp to reawaken your memories from a childhood event? Well, what exactly am I trying to do once I get there? What is the goal of my activities at the abandoned and haunted camp? This is not clear. I felt like I was wandering about with no real purpose, nothing that I'm trying to accomplish beyond all the little fix-this, minigames and HOS's.

Makes a great intermediate game
If your just starting out playing these type of games, this one is a fair one to play. White butterflies mark the HO areas. Items in the HO's listed in yellow are to interact with. The visuals and music are good in this game. The map is not much help, but there is not alot of back tracking to worry about it. Plz don't 4get 2 post ur fav. game after u write ur review, so that others can chk it out as I do...ty
game on gamers...
