Phantasmat: Crucible Peak
Fun SE game to play
This game only took me three days to finish, and I don't play nonstop each day. I do wish it had been longer but for an SE price it was okay. I liked the story and most of the games...I only skipped a couple, I believe. I enjoyed all of the HO scenes and did the "match 3" a couple of times just because it was available. My biggest disappointment is there is no map and because I do play at different times during a day, a map is always helpful because I DO forget where things are on most games. I don't like using a Hint but with this game I did need to at times. But, overall, I enjoyed this game as well as the first Phantasmat.

Well constructed game
Though a little short this game didnt have any bells and whistles but had a good flow to the game and kept me interested to the end. The hint button was useful when not sure where to go next. The graphics were great. Not too many hidden object scenes and they were clear if a little crowded. The mini games were interesting if a bit simple.
Good starter game for someone new to this type of game.

A worthy sequel!
One of the better games released in the last several months. Not too short and with a good story. I enjoy games that can't be completed in one sitting and don't play like unnecessary fluff was added to drag it out. Puzzles could have been a bit more challenging but very good visuals throughout. The hidden object areas were easy, I didn't need any hints. I didn't use the match 3 but would have instead of a hint had the HO scenes been more difficult. I would have preferred a story hint system that pointed you in the right direction as apposed to the direct answer.
I was glad to see the standard edition released soon after the CE; I like to play the latest games but don't like waiting over a month for these new games to be released as standard editions. I find that the CE games are rarely worth the extra money for a few extra minutes of gameplay tacked on as a "prologue". I believe that double the money should equate to double the content. I can see a highly anticipated game released as an CE but now they're all released as CE's; the good with the bad.
One last comment before I climb down from my soapbox is that it's getting pretty old that some of my favorite game franchises are releasing poor sequels that show a fraction of the effort. "Drawn" is a good example. In the past I would typically splurge on a CE of my favorite franchises but now won't consider it unless there's a sale.

I really liked this game
I thought the graphics were very nice and the perspectives were great. I prefer not having a map as it keeps you alert and in the game. I think the length is okay. The only time I needed the hint was when I couldn't see that I had already gotten the fishing rod because the color blended into the background.

Phantasmat 2 almost as good as the original.
Very goods game, great artwork, creepy caracters like game !. I liked the 1st Phantasmat more so waited for the SE to come out to buy this one. Buying a game involving a snow covered resort in January seems like way to much snow right now but after playing the trial version I don't want to wait. I'm hopeful it will be as intriging as the first one.

I really enjoyed this game. It was different from the start. Great story, great graphics. Could have used an interactive map, grrr. All in all, it was fun - not too difficult, not too much running around, kind of creepy. What more could you want? (except for the map).

The story line of this game keeps you interested and playing. There is no map, hints are minimal during the game, so you have to figure it out for yourself, which enhances the game play. The cut scenes and music fit right into this well designed game.

Phantasmat Crucible Peak
I really liked this game. Challenging but not too hard. Story was good, scenery great. A very enjoyable hidden object game. It is amazing to me how these artists develop these types of games. Very well done!
