Fallen: The Flowers of Evil
Although some of the reviews have talked about vampires I don't think that's particularly helpful. If you like vampire games you may be disappointed, but if you don't, well let's just say there's a twist to it.
This game has lots of locations -- it's easy to forget where everything is, especially if you leave the game and come back the next day. But you do have a map and can jump to where you want (just be careful you don't miss something in another location). Sometimes it's easy to forget where things are.
I enjoyed the game although there were a few niggles such as
* in HOS a teacup being called a 'mug' and others similarly, which means you're searching for the wrong thing. Still, instead of the HOS you can decide to play a bouncing blocks game which helps to find objects.
* one that;s not just in this game: finding an object and the text comes up something like "I should pick this flower/cut a piece of this fabric/whatever" when you have really no idea why you might need it. Obviously in games like this you try to collect everything you can, but sometimes it does strain credulity a bit.
I thought the storyline was good, moved on by the occasional cut scene, with appropriate voices. The game is satisfying in length and the puzzles, while not being very new, are just challenging enough (I don't like having to skip them).

Very nice game
I was surprised at this game. I did not expect all that much from it, but found it fun to play and fairly challenging. It is not a game to hurry through, there is a lot of back and forth. The graphics are good as well as the voice overs. The story line about average. It is well worth the price. I am going to buy this game. I think l most will enjoy playing it.

very good game!
I enjoyed the game, graphics are not the greatest but it had a good storyline. I played the full game and it is much longer in length than some of the most recent collectors editions.

I bough this game on recommendations. I enjoyed it from the off. Just the right amount of HOS. The hint button refilled quickly. The only thing that was a bit tricky was trying to remember where certain items belonged- it was a bit to and fro but not too much that you would get fed up of it. The graphics were good and the sound not too bad. Would I recommend this game? Definitely you will enjoy it very much.

More than a Hidden Object Game
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots to do. Map was helpful for most of the game as there was a lot of jumping around to do to find things etc. Game nicely ended with not so much jumping around. Glad I bought it, especially at the New Year special price:) Lots of play time. Well worth my cost.

Much better than forum indicated!
I was surprised to read in the forum that people were stuck in places or could not find items. The game was well scripted and different from a lot of the vampire games.
If you go carefully and explore the scenes fully, the hint system will help. I never play the hardest level so was very happy with the game.

Not too hard
This was a fun, relatively easy game trial. Nice for a break from really hard games, but not so simple as to be boring or dull. I liked it.

Not a bad SE
This is a good HOPA, almost long enough to be a CE. It also has a very good map for jumping from place to place.
I played on the hardest mode. The HOS scenes are pretty easy, the minigames easier versions of those you've seen before.
You can't turn off voiceovers, but thankfully they are scarce. The biggest downside is the "mini cut scenes" e.g. you have a needle and thread and have to repair something, it shows you the repair in very slow and painstaking detail. There also is too much leading: " I need a hammer to break this". There are also some translation errors: a "flower" in an HOS scene is a green potted plant.
It still was a fun game to get on a free credit.

Fallen: The Flowers of Evil
Well, what can I say, I"ll be brief. Loved this game. Yes, wish it would just keep going. Just the right amount of HOG and great storyline. Easy to follow, not to much running back and forth. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who likes Hidden Object Games.
