Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman Collector's Edition
I Expected Something Better ...
This was a good Game, except for the fact that the Hint button was tediously SLOW, and many Hidden Objects are hard to find due to lighting, size, etc. I think the Story could have been way more interesting than what they gave us. The ending in the Bonus Chapter was predictable, so nothing special there. Of no replayable value to me, and I certainly wouldn't want to play it again as it was way too slow and frustrating and the Fun Factor was not very high.

Too many Ho and not enough game
I was really looking forward to paly this game. Some of the HO's were so hard to find that I just wanted to give up. Instead, I wanted more story before I had to paly another Hard ho. I have played these games for almost 5 years and am very good, But this games just turned boring, because it was basic old HO game with a little search. Also WAY to dark for me.

Never so glad to finish a game!
One of the worst games I've played in awhile. I usually enjoy a challange, but this game was rediculous. I can't remember the last time I had to use the Strategy Guide so much. The only reason I finished the game is because I paid for it. I do not understand how anyone could have enjoyed this game; the HOS were beyond difficult, the games were fairly easy, and the items needed just didn't make send, nor did the flow of the game. As stated, I was never so glad to finish a game as I was this game!

Just OK (that's being generous)
This game has a long playing time and pretty music, but had more cons than I would like. The graphics were dark and grainy. During the HO'S some of the items I still couldn't see with the hint and a magnifying glass! I rarely need help on HO'S. There isn't much long range running back and forth because of how the game is structured.
The storyline is OK but nothing special. Most people have heard of the Headless Horseman.
The bonus game was of average length. It's not needed to complete the story.
My tip is to get the SE on a credit. The CE I purchased on sale and felt that was overpriced.
I doubt I'll replay this game.

Which Century Is This Set In?
I played the trial and it promises to be brilliant. Until I came across the phonograph and vinyl record. Oh pleeeeeease, someone tell the Russians when Edison lived, I have a pretty good idea it was 100 years before the setting of Sleepy Hollow.

Nice looking but..
The graphics are nice, storyline is OK but it's just too easy, it will present no challenge at all to anybody with even moderate casual gaming experience, it just feels like going through the motions. Also, the main character's point at the beginning is to dispel the myths surrounding the headless horsemen and to use scientific techniques to get to the truth, something which he maintains even through discourse with ghosts.

Good, but simple puzzles...
The graphics are great, music wonderful, decent storyline...but...the puzzles are for a 12 year old age group. I found the game very easy. I played on hard mode. It is your standard, find objects put them together, solve puzzles with hidden object scenes. The HO's were very good, nice graphics and some objects were difficult but not impossible to locate. The game has a good length for a change and the bonus round was decent but very easy. Good game for beginners, or for the more experienced player who wants a casual game.

Just like the Movie!
If you wished you could play a game based almost literally on the movie Sleepy Hollow, look no further! The characters in this game both look and sound like the characters in the movie, just with different voices. It's an okay Hidden Object/Puzzle game, but not that hard or time consuming.

Based off of free demo only:
Taking a classic storyline and making a so-so game. I downloaded the free trial a little skeptical because the headless horseman storyline is just overdone but I figured I would give it a chance. While I didn't feel like I completely wasted my time playing the demo, it also did not inspire to even wonder how the rest of the game was.
HO scenes were easy and the puzzles were even easier than those. If you play a lot of these types of games this one shouldn't give you any problems.
