Cursed Fates: The Headless Horseman
Great old story
I really loved this game. It was fun and challenging enough. I had to use the hint almost every time to find out where to go but that was okay. I wish I had ordered the CE. Recommend this fun game!

I don't usually comment on games, but I was so disappointed in this one, I just had to. I really wanted to like this game, because of the story. Found myself wishing it would end. Far too lineal....I like wandering around and figuring out what to do next and where to go, this game does not allow you to do that. The puzzles were way too easy...seemed like some of them did it for you. A couple of the hidden object games had a bit of a challenge of finding an object. Over all, I found the game very disappointing, even the story line waned a bit.

The Best Game I Ever Played on Big Fish
Years ago I bought The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and up until now it was one of my favorite games. This game however, I have to say, blows all the other ones away. The graphics, the storyline, the games, the hidden objects, the hint button, just everything about this game was first class. I want to thank whoever created this game you are brilliant and for giving me hours of pleasure. I did not want this game to end.

this game was relatively easy and short but just fun. I don't know who thinks of these things but wow this one they got right, to bring back the headless horseman and help him find his head and save the town in the process. creative and fun. I can't rate sound since I don't use it but the games were good, not too dark so you can actually find things. no map but a good hint button so knowing where to go is easy as well. I really enjoyed this game.

Great visual treat. I played in advanced mode and had few difficulties. Loved the HO scenes and had to use a couple of clues. The puzzle scenes were not too difficult but a good mix.
I don't usually play with the background music sound turned up but I did with this game - soothing melodies that went well with the scenes.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did - Ciao, KRA

Tried the trial and got very absorbed in it,so i decided to buy it. It had a lot of spooooky scenes. Graphics were beautiful.I like a mixture of normal hos and frag objects.The hos weren't too hard to find but hard enough. I class this one with my favorite game Return to Ravenhearst.I didn't have to strain my brain for the puzzles.Well that's my thoughts on the game.Happy fishing to all you fisherman.Ronald

Play It If You Love Sleepy Hollow Stories!
I was skeptical when I tried the trial version of the standard game. Since I had played "Sleepy Hollow' by EGames a few years ago, I was doubtful I would enjoy another Sleepy Hollow HO.
But I was surprised. This game is a little on the easy side and only has two modes and I must admit I did have to use a hint or two to figure out what it was I needed to combine in inventory in a few places.
The puzzles are fun and I played this game twice so far. They aren't hard and very easy to figure out what you need to do without asking the 'help' button.
There are a good dose of HOS in this game and I really loved the depth of those scenes and sometimes just lingered in them to take in the view.
I played through twice because the first time around though I collected about 56 of those little horseshoe rewards I didn't have enough to 'buy' everything in the end. A fun challenge to try to find them all.
This game is more intune with the movie Sleepy Hollow as far as the characters and look alikes #sort of# actors that stared in Tim Burden's Sleepy Hollow. I thought the judge certaintly did favor Christopher Lee from that movie. Or at least the character type in the mind of Tim Burden.
There isn't a map, but you won't need one, since you will have to back track to previous scenes to finish up some scenes or to find a new object that wasn't there before.
Great Fun! You won't get lost! I don't always use maps and since this game blocks off most areas once you are really finished with them then it's not necessary.
I was pleasantly surprised by this game and all the HOS and many are interactive.
Really liked it!
Buy it, it's worth the standard version price, I wish I had gotten the CE if it had more gameplay, as I didn't want it to end.

Wish I'd gotten the Collector's Edition, but the regular version was still great. The clues were well-planned and presented a nice challenge. I'd definitely recommend this game!

Really good story about the headless horseman, and Inspector Crane has come to investigate.
Very crisp and beautiful graphics
HOS, interactive, standard and silhouettes (very clear)
You can combine inventory objects
No map, but not necessary as each chapter closes out the old locations
Great puzzles (and I dont say that a lot); medium skip
Good hint system, needed to use it a few times
A good amount of seek and find
More adventure than HOG
Nice length: 5.5 hours casual
