Fallen: The Flowers of Evil
Average at best
I am usually content with TM games, but having played so many and the rare additions to that genre, I am a recent convert to HOG games. So, apologies for a late review of a game well over a year old.
I have now played about 10 Hidden Object Games, most with gorgeous graphics, characters and engrossing stories. This game is not one of them. The puzzles and HO scenes are just silly. For example, the opening scene has a reel of thread and you need a needle. Many needles turn up in the HO scenes, but even though you find them you still have to go to many places and find numerous abstract bits and pieces to open that one box to finally get a needle added to your inventory. Same with garden tools and almost everything else. It actually just became more and more amusingly ridiculous, till it just got boring.
I am just beginning, but I think the non-involving story and lack of any interest in the characters made it the worst HOG I have played so far.
2 stars overall for nice graphics and good sound and the fact that I did actually finish the game.

Aside from all the backtracking and been-there-done-that theme, the two biggest peeves of mine are: 1. having to visit a HOS more than once with all the same objects in place, and 2. finding objects that don't fit the era of the game setting. I recall seeing some very modern toenail clippers and pruning shears. Keep it consistent with the era, please!
The scenery was pleasing,nice color and the music wasn't objectionable. But because the storyline was SO not unique, I found the game very dull. Perhaps it livens up after the demo, but I'm not enticed to buy.

OK game, horrible tech issues
The game itself is OK. There is a lot of running around and back-tracking. You have a map that you can use to immediately go somewhere, but in my opinion that took longer than just back-tracking. The graphics are pretty decent, the puzzles are fairly easy. However, due to technical issues, I can't finish the game. I've tried twice now, and both times at different points in the game, I've gotten stuck and can't do anything else. The first time was fairly early on, couldn't get the lamp on the chandelier because it just literally was not there. Uninstalled, reinstalled, waited a few months so it wouldn't be tedious to do again, same thing at a different point, almost to the end. Couldn't undue the last bolt on the shield because my drill disappeared after the 3rd one. I literally CANNOT continue, everywhere I go, the hint button tells me "there is nothing to do here". After getting so far, I'm certainly not wiling to try the game a 3rd time. My advice is don't waste a game credit or money on this dud.

Did not use "tool" in correct order. "Stuck" and cannot proceed
I don't usually write reviews, but I am doing so for this game to warn others about a glitch. I was about 2/3 to 3/4 through the game. I had a tool which it turned out needed to be used twice. I used it in -- apparently -- the wrong order, because the tool disappeared from my inventory and was not available to use in the second scene.
I was completely "stuck" at this point. Could not go forward. No way to go back.
This game jumps around from place to place A LOT.
There is no way to jump quickly from place to place. That's okay. But to make a trap which stops the game just because a tool was used "out of order" is just bad programming.
I didn't do anything wrong. The game is just programmed to remove the tool after it is used in a particular scene.
I checked a walk through on the internet, and yes, I am right about this.
What a gigantic waste of my time.

Worse game ever
Not only was it the worse game I have ever played, it took me 3 days to finish it thats how boring and tedious. constant running back and forth for small items made no sense either and some thngs did not "match up" such as a trident for a devil should have been a pitchfork and other things like that.

Was doing quite nicely till it came to finding brush for glue. What should I do now? At this point, I am sorry I spent my money.

I only played the demo and left after 5 minutes. A game has to catch me within the first minutes, this one left me disappointed. I did not like the graphics form the very first moment, which gave me no little reason to go on, so I had to turn off.
No buy for me.
