Haunted Legends: The Undertaker
Another good ERS-game!
As other ERS-games, this one is pretty easy and linear. There are 3 game modes.
The graphics are great; everything is clear.
The HOS and mini-games are easy.
You have a clues list.
There is no map, but you won't need one since the game is logical, and there are not too many locations.
The gamelength is ok; for me a bit more than 3 hours, without skipping.

Love the ERS games and this one doesn?t disappoint. This is a well-developed storyline with premium class gameplay. 3 modes of play: casual, advanced and hard ? you can change modes at any time during the game. Widescreen available. You have a diary which includes notations from outside the game play ? an improvement over those diaries that just retell exactly what you already discovered without other details. Separate level selectors for voice, sound and music.
Location graphics are superb and interesting ? beautifully conceived and executed details. HOS are crisp and clear. Puzzles are varied, interesting, and a pleasure to solve. The narrator that announces the ERS games should have a voice-over role occasionally - very pleasant to listen to. The music is not the spooky Twilight Zone music that you?d expect with the walking undead environment - doesn't send shivers up your spine so I can play at night

from cards to mirrors
This ERS development team knows how to make each adventure theme unique.
It's hard to imagine all that S.G. is done while he is more revealed.
If you want to know more, you'll have to risk money and buy it! ;)

I absolutely loved this game. This was my first Haunted Legends game. I will check out the others. I played in casual mode since I am new to the HOPA genre. Graphics were clear, story line was flowing. Hidden object scenes were not overwhelming in difficulty or number. I loved the music and actually left it on. This is a definite buy for me.

I don't want it to end
I'm almost done with this game and while it was easy enough to play, it was so much fun! I do recommend this game for that alone! This is my first review of a game after playing about 10 of them so far. None of the games are long enough but it's cheaper than going to a movie. lol
I hope to find more games like this one.

Nice long game, good value!
I usually burn through these games in one sitting, so I was really impressed with the length of this game. I like scenes that look like they are one big painting, so I liked the art in this a lot. The voice acting is quite good, which is fortunate because there are a lot of cut scenes with dialogue.
There were some hidden object scenes, but they were used sparingly so the story and problem solving weren't derailed. I liked that some of the searching scenes were puzzle-like, but I was left scratching my head at some of the items and had to use hints (which is why the "level of challenge" was only four stars - it was TOO hard).
Even though the world in this game is quite large, you won't have to backtrack all over the place like some other games. I felt that navigation was effortless - there wasn't a whole lot of running back and forth.
A lot of these games have a rushed feeling toward the end, as if the game designers ran out of ideas. This game has this feeling, but it is barely noticeable.
My only complaints about the sound/visuals was that one of the characters always breathed really loudly and wheezed constantly. I felt this was unnecessary and a little annoying.
All in all, one of the best games I've played in awhile.

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!!!!

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.
