AWESOME CHALLENGE I thought this game was terrific, frustrating at times, but not overly so, I wish there was a map but there was not and if that was the one thing I could change about the game it would be that. The scenery was beautiful, the characters fun and interesting. I thought there was a good balance of HOS and mini games. Some of the mini games were harder than others but none were I felt the need to skip, Instructions on mini games were sufficient, The help button was not always helpful but many times you have to stop and think of what to do next. The strategy guide stays on the page you left it on and is very helpful in tough spots. The collectors edition, is well worth it not just for the guide, but the wallpapers, and extra bonus play.

Song of the phoenix's dark cousin If you liked song of the phoenix, you will like this one as well. The game play is the same, very smooth. Some backtracking, but not enough you constantly need your map. Collect 4 animals along the way to help you with a puzzle. HO @ every turn. Strategy guide helps you if you get stuck. Plz don't 4get to submit ur fav. game, after u write ur review, so others can chk it out as I do. ty game on gamers... May 31, 2013
What Fun! Definitely buy the CE! The first thing that grabbed me about this game was the MIni-Games. They are SO unique and creative! This game does not just re-hash old formulas. And yet what a hoot when the designers added a Match 3! LOL The locations are incredible. And NEVER take anything for granted! Sometimes there are 2 objects you need to pick up in one zoom-in. And the length is VERY good - which is one of the first things I look for in a CE. February 1, 2013
This game is very cleverly made - with the mix of the dark and the light perfectly matched The graphics are very clear and colourful, the pace is fairly steady and the mystery keeps one quite intrigued. I am not one for many words, but this would have to be a favourite of mine especially because of the replay content and the marvelous colours used. Thank you Bigfish!! January 3, 2013
Fun hidden object game All i can say is loved this game December 28, 2012
Enjoyable story with excellent graphics. Great graphics and enjoyable story. Good hos, puzzless could be a little more mind challenging. The CE has a smart guide that knows where you left off, this is great for me, since it appears that my mind and most game developers are not on the same frequency. May 28, 2013
This one is a keeper! I really loved this game, it flowed so nicely, not alot of back and forth, I love the integration of the animals in the games, it makes it so much more fun to me. I also really don't like games that have so many locks! This game has just a few, it drives me nuts to have you need a key for this, a special key for that, to me that gets tedious...the graphics are awesome, the music a bit repetative, but still ok. Oh, and not too many mini games, I really wish they would do much less many games and more story line HOGs... I like that better, this one was awesome! January 22, 2013
Probably the best game I've played so far. This game is definitely the best game I've played on all levels. The graphics are gorgeous. The gameplay is really intriguing - definitely not your usual game elements and concepts. I was surprisingly delighted with the Bonus Play. That was worth buying the Collector's Edition. The only disappointment was that I wanted to interact more with the Minotaur. Still the overall excellence of the game, plus the Bonus Play made up for the disappointment. Totally recommend this game. January 20, 2013
really a 4.5 game This is my favorite "Spirits of Mystery" game. The unique plot (rescuing kidnapped magical menagerie animals), character twists, and pervading sense of urgency made the game interesting and full. The animals were cute, but not too cutesy. I thought the voicing was excellent (I've found that this is an important component in the quality of a game), and I'm pretty sure one voice actor had some good Shakespearean acting under his belt. Like other ERS games, there is substantial interaction with minor characters, which I find to be important to the "fullness" of the game. The mini-games were fun and varied, and I found them to be mostly in the easy to intermediate range. There didn't seem to be as many locations as in similar games, but the portal between the "worlds" isn't just kept open; it takes a lot of time and work to open them as needed. There's no map for this game, but personally that works for me There are two timed aspects to the game that add a lot: having to find food for the rescued animals whenever they get hungry, and an invisibility spell that wears off after a certain time. They certainly made the game more absorbing, but I spent a lot of time frantically looking for Chester's bamboo so he wouldn't starve to death (although I doubt it was really a Neopets-type of situation), and panicking because the invisibility spell sometimes wore off at inconvenient moments. The first thing that made this game a 4.5 affair for me was the ending (or the two endings, since the CE includes bonus play). It wasn't clear in either case when the story was over, it just stopped. Silently. "Why are the fireworks going off? Oh, I guess it's the end." Honestly, just a few wrap-up sentences, fairytale- style, would have done the trick. The second thing -- what was up with the minotaur motif? He had actually very little to do with the story. However, my fondness for appealing, charismatic Chester the Red Panda (even when he was cranky) made up for all that, and got my official rating up to five. Thanks for this absorbing game.
