Maestro: Music from the Void
I have one of the others in the series and this one is as good as the other. It is shorter than I recall the other to be, but that does not stop if from being a fun game.
The fun factor is there along with suspense. I like the hint which I found I didn't need very often. You get to travel all over and, even I, didn't get lost.
The graphics are exceptional as are the voice overs and the sound. I have to admit that after a while, I did turn the music down a bit and I'll not be attending any violin concerts in the near future, but it isn't so annoying that it detracts from the game.
The level of challenge was a bit surprising. The Hidden Objects were for the most part easy and the Mini games, while not too difficult, I did find myself skipping several, because for the life of me I could not figure out what I was suppose to do.
The story line is really interesting and if you have any of the others in the series you know what it is going to be. However, there is an end to this one and it doesn't leave you hanging as to what happened.
All in all it was a good and I bought it. Guess that is about as good a recommendation as I can give.

Better than the other two
Among the Maestro series this one is probably the best, in my opinion, with lots of interactive scenes, HOPs and kind of good story. The other part of the game are your regular ERS: graphic, music, voice overs. I liked the part when we can play the violin. The hint and skip buttons are faster recharged than the previous one. The ending scene is not bad, kind of leaving me more questions than answers, and giving me more excitement to the next game (hopefully). Job well done for ERS who improve this game better than the former ones.

maestro music from the void
Dissapointed with this game ,loved the other Maestro games so bought this one straight away, but wish I had,nt. It was very short and just kept wandering from place to place without much reason . In my opinion It Is A waste of money.

Same ole thing~good but not as expected
I don't think this new edition to the Maestro collection is what should have been the next one. The story line was one that seems well done, and there really wasn't much character interaction at all. It seemed to have a very thin plot. Also it didn't seem to last long, at least not compared to the others in this series. Ok game but not as challenging as the Maestros in the past :(

NO MORE MAESTRO PLEASE
Review based on about three hours gameplay in casual mode.
Animation/VOS - Would have been great if there had been more of it throughout the game.
IHOS - Fairly clear. Norm of small to larger objects. Lists and silhouettes. Repeated.
Hint - Fast charge. Gives clues and directions.
Random Click Penalty - None
Diary - Contains story, photos, clues, etc.
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Some very unique. Fast skip. One puzzle required, I think, at least 6 to 7 pieces to find before you could even solve it. Too much back tracking for me in every aspect of this game. I became bored to tears.

Short but sweet
I liked the 1st Maestro the best. But this was OK. Finished the demo in 40 minutes on casual. But the end of the demo is 31% of the way through the story. That means the game is slightly over 2 hours long for me.
Short games are no buys for me.

Maestro Should Retire
Very disappointed, the demo was ok and I thought it would get better...not! No map so there was alot of back and forth. l like having plenty of mini games, but they were super easy. The graphics were grainy and some of the items in the HOS were incorrectly named. Overall, it wasn't up to the standards I have come to expect from this developer. I think the first one of the series was the best.

The story involves rescuing students who have been taken by the magical violinist.....didn't the same thing happen in the last game?
After only 40 mins of demo I was bored! Too many HOs, easy puzzles....need I go on?

I have the other 2, so I got this one, but it was again a case of same old, same old...Boring really.
