Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden
Beautiful art and good story. The characters were drawn a bit primitively but overall the game was good.

FUN UNDER THE SEA
This was a fun game with lots to do. One of the best features was the map. It wasn't interactive but it did let you know where there was something to do and gave a reference point as to where you are.
long playing time
good mix of HO'S and puzzles
pretty graphics and music
There were no cons for me. This is really a 41/2 star game.
Kudos to the developers on doing something different.

I enjoyed this game. The graphics were great and the storyline was interesting. Lots of gotcha moments. The mini games were not very challenging. The HOGs were easy to see and there were not too many of them. The story drew me in enough that I was saddened at the demise of certain characters. I recommend this game for the visuals and enjoyment aspects more than the challenge. I hope there is a sequel.

This was an interesting game to play. Graphics, background music and flow of the game were very nice. Always enjoy getting achievements and HOS are spread out well so there's not an overkill of them. Enough adventure with the dark creature-like thing showing up often. Nice to have an option of switching from the HO scene to being able to play the dominoe game instead. All in all, not a bad game!

Good Game, but Haven't I Been Here Before?
If you have not played either of the Nightmares of the Deep games, I would recommend this title. It has a good story, lots of gameplay, beautiful graphics, mapping, and a multitude of puzzles. However, Abyss was VERY similar to other games, with puzzles lifted straight out of the Nightmares and Enigmatis. For me, the game felt like more of the same and I grew weary. I was also confused by 'The Last Chapter' which was an extra game section that did not make any sense if one had just finished the main story. I hope this developer will take time for less reuse on their next release..

it was a good game
i played casual. no sound. graphics are good. the story is typical. your friend is lost underwater and you try to find him and when you do he is under a spell that controls the mind. you find another that you have trusted the same way. the kids are trapped in this underwater world. you need to save the adults and the kids. there is a diary and the hint/skip button charge fast. had to skip most mini games. the hints tell you where to go and what to do. set up for a sequel but not the one i would have thought. kept waiting for it to happen and something else did.

Great game, you'll have fun
This is a great game with all the fonction you need: skip, map, hint button, who all work correctly. Graphics are astonish
It's in the way of "Eternal journey: new atlantis"... who is a real great game.

Nice but too short
This is a nice game, a good storyline, amusing puzzles, interactive HO scenes, but definitely too short : just h 3.5 of lenght.

nice twist to a common theme, good game!
Too bad the developers didn't do a little more and make this a CE, as it is, it is a SE well worth the price. I prefer animated characters to "real actors" so the stilted animation didn't bother me at all. Annoying that there was no way to turn off the voices so I had to mute the game often,and the background effects were irritating. The story was a good twist on a common plot. Could have been more HOS and puzzles, but those that were there were pretty good.

The only con I have is the sound drives you nuts during the hidden object portion. I think they could have come up with better music. Other than that it is fun and challenging for a novice of myself.
