Haunted Legends: The Undertaker
The walking dead!!! Great SE version!!
This review is based on playing the CE:
Beta tested this one weeks ago and couldn?t wait for the release!! Loved the first 2 Haunted Legends already... Story (corpses rise from their graves), graphics (stunning, as usual for ERS-games), sounds (especially those eerie zombie noises) are causing a creepy atmosphere! There are 3 modes to play (can be changed during the game). Lots of interactive HOS and varied minigames/ puzzles! BUT: No map. Turned off the annoying music. No CE-extras of interest for me, such as collectables, achievments? All in all I expected some new features in this 3rd Haunted Legends! Bought the CE without hesitating, but should have better waited for this SE version? I highliy recommend this SE version to play!!!!

Planning to Buy!
Another great game in the Haunted Legends series. Although I have only played the free trial thus far, I could have bought this game without playing it. Haunted Legends always has good games for us to play. This one, so far, has not been disappointing. S.G. is back to causing mischief. And I am enjoying chasing him down! So this game, for me, is fun! The visuals aren't sharp, but pleasant. The challenges & HO scenes are somewhat easy, and the storyline is cohesive. So far there seems to be no "continuation" from the previous games. Each game is "fresh" and the storyline is unique for each game. S.G. just happens to be the primary culprit for each game. If you are already familiar with any of Haunted Legends' games, you will not be disappointed. If this is your first time, you will enjoy it. Play it & buy it!

Great Game, Pity About The Ending
I did generally enjoy this game, and although I don't time my gameplay I feel as if I was at this one for hours on end. Every time I thought "surely it must be getting to the end now" there was more to do - which was great. This is a game I'm going to enjoy re-playing at some stage to look at all the little things I missed first time around. I liked the graphics, and particularly liked the raspberry-blowing monkey - what an endearingly cheeky little fella!
The puzzles were all pretty straightforward, and in some instances I thought "is this all I have to do?", but I'm not complaining - some games have puzzles so head-scratchingly complex I don't have the patience to sit for ages working them out.
The HOGs, although junk-piles, didn't involve having to use a microscope or sit with your nose pressed against the screen. While most of them were straight 'seek and find' #with the odd 'move the curtain to find the item', or 'open a lid to find this item'# one or two were of the newer interactive-kind #find one item, use it on another, and so on etc. etc.# The change was good now and again.
If I have one gripe only #it's a biggie, and unfortunately a common theme with this developer#, it was the ridiculously ABRUPT ENDING. Everything builds up to the final confrontation and then .... BANG! It's over. Having played for hours on end, it was something of an anti-climax. If you can get beyond that #I'm sure I'll recover#, this game is a great way to while away an afternoon.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game, good storyline not all of the HO scenes are finding things, some of them are very interesting. you are asked to find just one thing which you use in the scene to reveal another thing which you use to reveal another thing it was a nice change from the norm,
However the ending of the game was bad. Probably because I'm too cheap to buy the CE. Most games give you some kind of conclusion then tease you with what is to come but this one just ended with nothing resolved I was most disappointed.

Another good ERS game
Well this one is quite easy. The HOS are good and the puzzles are not all that hard either. The hint button does work but will not need it much. The music is ok and the voice over and graphics are really good. Just a good fun game to pass the time away. IT has a pretty straight flow with some going back and forth. They all do now.

An Actual Challenge! Hooray!
The storyline for this game is really lame, but the game play itself is so engaging that you can overlook the cheesy dialogue.
I enjoy a real intellectual challenge when I play this type of game, and I found that I got it with this one. That being said, the final puzzle is very easy and anti-climactic, and the end of the game is quite abrupt. However, I had so much fun getting to the end that I still encourage you to give it a try.
I also thought this game was a nice length. I'm always disappointed when I feel a game is too short. That was not a problem here.
HOS are a mixture of traditional object lists and silhouettes. The silhouette puzzles are the kind where you need one object to find the next object on the list. The mixture made the game more interesting to play.

I have all the games in this series so had to have this one. It did not disappoint! I totally loved it and the various places the storyline took me.
The little impish guy S.G. is back for more devilry and this time he brought zombies! It is our job to get rid of S.G. and his hoard of undead, as well as deal with a little monkey.
The puzzles are not hard, the hidden objects range from standard to "put it back" type and are interactive. Game play is not quite linear so you can got where you want to, though if you go too far you might have to backtrack.
My only complaint is the sudden ending that leaves a few things unanswered. Another game on the way? Sure hope so!
I highly recommend this one!

This is a Keeper
I've only just played the trial version, but that is enough for me to buy this game. It's spooky and I like that. The story is good. The vo's are good. The HOS not junk piles like some that I've played. The music fits and not annoying. All in all, I really like this game and I just maybe will also buy the CE version.
