Abyss: The Wraiths of Eden
creepy and evil, if you're into that sort of thing
I can't understand why games with such great graphics and puzzles and HO scenes need so badly to have such an evil storyline. And dead bodies popping out at every turn? It was a little overkill (literally).
If you're a fan of the creepy games, this is for you. Everything about it was great except for the unnecessary scare factor.

Standard HOG Fare
I'm surprised this game is rated so highly. It is a pretty standard HOG.
- Art style is nice
- Nice mixture of mini games and HOGs
- Cut scenes are decent
- The hidden object scenes are terribly easy, to the point of being pointless. This is the biggest strike against this game. It is way too easy.
- The mini-games are also easy, but not as bad as the hidden object scenes.
- The constant sound of water dripping is maddening and you can't turn it off because then you have no audio during the cut scenes.
- Bonus content is mediocre.
Overall I say give this one a pass.

Nothing special about the story or the game play
I enjoy all different kinds of HO games but this one didn't really hold my attention. I just played it for the free hour and only kept playing because I knew it would be over soon. To be fair I am not a fan of HO games where you have to backtrack through the same rooms over and over and over again (like this game) - I like the game to move forward for the most part, it keeps it interesting.

Hintbutton Overload Usage
I was underwhelmed by this game. Granted, the graphics are stunningly beautiful and the story was fun. But that's not enough for me. I was constantly confused by the back and forthing. The elevator was maddening, never could remember which floor to get off on and I was always wrong. I had to keep using hints to figure out where to go next. Even the map wasn't helpful because it was hard to havigate the different locations with that infernal elevator. Normally, with these games I have a sense of direction and can figure out how to return to an earlier location with ease. But this game was way too confusing for me. A first! There are also a couple of instances where I finished a task in one locale, had to return back to the top of Eden only to find out I had to revisit the same locale again! I could have knocked out two birds with one stone but the gamers don't let you do that. All in all, a beautifully artistic pretty game but not as much fun as others by this developer. I wish I'd known it wasn't as good as I hoped and I wouldn't have purchased it.

Don't often leave reviews but this game was an absolute chore to complete. The map was worse than useless, the tasks made little sense and the hidden object scenes were awful. I have never quit a game before, and I have played well over 100, but this one was excrutiating. Even the cursor did not work well-the objects never "stuck" to it the first time.

Having read all the rave reviews, I was looking forward to this, but deleted after 20 mins of the demo.
Far too linear, very easy straightforward puzzles and HOS.....sorry Bored!

Boring....Boring...Not so Hot graphics
I think I played the trial on this before...so this was my 2nd time; I didn't even give it the full 60 minutes....The music was Monotonous and got on my nerves, and the graphics were mediocre as was the storyline....I guess I am spoiled by some of the better games...I will have to go back and look at who the developer was for this game, but I definitely did not find it fun....

As almost any game, starting out was ok, but by 3/4's of the way through, I was dumbfounded by the storyline and walking with your heels clicking under water. LMAO The graphics are good and it had its good moments, but it is NOT worth playing again.

Don't waste your time on this one
For the beginner only. To think I wasted a free credit on this one. Pathethic game in my opinion
