Hallowed Legends: Ship of Bones Collector's Edition
Enjoyable game - No bones about it!
Lovely graphics, cut-scenes and voice-overs made this an enjoyable game to play.
It had all the goodies I expect to see in a CE game - including achievements and bonus hidden items. But what the game lacked was that little extra something that makes a game memorable.
Hidden object games were only slightly interactive, and puzzles varied from easy to moderate.
Game included a map for easy jumping from scene to scene.
Storyline flowed nicely, but wasn't really edge of your seat captivating.
Bonus chapter was more of the same calibre, with the storyline not being essential to the main game - more of a mini-story that could have taken place at any stage after the main story.
Definitely recommend this game, but am on the fence as to getting the CE or SE version. But if you like getting CE games then this would be one to add to the collection.

Dreamscapes: The Sandman
If you just want to play but not put a lot of brain work into it, this is perfect.
Storyline isn't involved but it IS a lot of fun.

When "Hel" freezes over
Storyline kept my interest. There was a lot of back/forth going on and some of the minigames (such as the maze) I couldn't get the object to move. I always get a kick out of the little "helpers" Elephant Games puts in their products. I would have rated this a five if I was able to play all of the minigames.

Another fantastic game!!
Love the mini games and the story as well, new stuff and that is fun! The graphics could be clearer or sharper, but is my opinion, this doesn't stop you having a great time playing the game from the very start to the final bonus chapter.

Excellent CE...for once.
This on it's own is a great game. Yes, it's got the usual bells and whistles of an Elephant Game and may seem standard fare. But it was a wonderful way to spend a snowy day. And, for once, the CE was worth it. The game itself was of an acceptable length but the CE was very good and worth the additional cost. One I will definitely play again.

I quite liked this game played it on the easy mode, still needed quite a few hints, some of the mini games I just gave up, could have had clearer directions! hos just the right ammount so I didn't get sick of them, some parts of the game flowed and I found I was getting to grips with it, others bits were real mind benders

Actually gave this a 4.5!
Wow, Elephant did it again. I have the other two Hallowed Legends games and really liked them...this one does not disappoint. As usual, exceptional graphics and game play. Nice SG, which lists all of the chapters in the story (a huge plus). Very nice and helpful hint system (fairly fast recovery).
Not a lot of voice overs, but what they have is very nice. Clean, clear and easy to find HOG items. Games are not difficult, but take a little thought on some. The bird is sort of fun to use (no real explanation of who he is yet). I like the need to find extra items in a game. It makes it more interesting and not just a walk through of HOGs and games to play.
The story line is not new, but well done. I like the combination of real people and animated people and things. Nice break for a change. Didn't care for the "bad woman," too freaky and weird looking. Actually a bit over-done.
Anyway, I must have this added to my trilogy, so a definite buy for me. Just no sure yet if I want to buy the CE or wait for the SE. Haven't been too impressed with the "bonus" chapters lately. Besides, I have way too many game credits that need to be used very soon. How about some really nice SE games for awhile. I'm sure the top devs can come up with a few.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews.

hallowd legends :ship of bones
First of all the ratings were low because I find live actors distracting. It's like the difference between a book and a movie. I enjoy a good game for the art work and being transported into a new world. Live actors bring it back to everyday life.
the first two games of this series were very good.
The game did advance in a nice way. some objects were hard to see.
I always play intermediate levels ...although this only had 2 modes.
Hint was useful.
storyline seemed ok not exceptional.
sound effects alright.
No buy for me.

I was annoyed at the lack of logical flow in this game -- instead of having a natural feel to the progression of story, it seemed as if it jumped constantly from one location to another, and required way too much remembering of shapes and details that in no way fit in with the storyline. The collection of amulets to melt ice, in particular, drove me nuts, because there was no connection between the shape of the amulet and where it was placed, so I constantly found myself searching for random shapes rather than experiencing game flow. Frustrating. I finished it, but I won't play again.
