Break the Curse: The Crimson Gems
Great puzzle/adventure game!
This is not a HOG, so don't look for HOS, there aren't any! But it's a great puzzle game! There are 2 game modes.
- The graphics are crisp, with wonderful colors.
- The story is very interesting, there are not many dialogs.
- The puzzles go from easy to really challenging! Most of them are unique.
- There is a journal but no map. I missed it, since there is a lot of walking.
- The hint system is good, telling you what to do next.
The game has a good length; for me, without skipping, it was about 4 hours.
All in all, a nice, interesting game!

I confine my review to the puzzles aspect; all other features are well covered by existing reviews.
Puzzles: finally, a game with creative graphics that's full of them and has a variety of levels of difficulty; some even requiring repeated attempts and a considerable number of moves to accomplish.
Highly recommend on this point.

My Kind of Game
This is a game I would highly recommend to anyone who plays HO games for the puzzles, not the HO scenes. I played the demo and saw no HOs at all, but lots of creative, innovative puzzles hard enough for a good challenge, but not so hard you give up and skip them. I like to try to figure out the objective of the puzzle without clicking on the directions if I can, and because of the creativity of these puzzles, that's a welcome additional challenge. I am definitely buying this one. More like this, Big Fish, please!

Lots of puzzles
Very different from the standard Big Fish game, lots of various puzzles, some can be quite a challenge. Nice change if your looking for something a little different.

Fun Puzzle Adventure Game
If you love puzzles you will love this game. There is one puzzle after another, there is not much for hidden object
lovers but there is plenty for the puzzler to engage in:
secret locks, water fountains, portrait puzzles, you name it.
There are hours of fun here, in this visually beautiful game,
with a soothing soundtrack and nice voiceovers.

A surprising WOW!
Based solely on playing the demo. This is NOT your average HOG....like many of the other reviews state, this is more of a puzzle game than anything. But certainly, at least in my view, not typical. The graphics and music are fantastic and really do serve to move the game along. Interesting game premise too. Not overly simplified either - these puppies make you THINK!
Would HIGHLY recommend this game for any skill level
