Hallowed Legends: Ship of Bones
I have never given a game all 5 stars. This game took me more than a day playing. That hasn't happened since Return to Ravenhurst. By the way I NEVER use the hint button. I play for the challenge of it not to see how fast I can finish.
I think that is all that needs to be said. :)

Finally it's here!!
I played the "try me" of the CE but have been waiting for it to come out in SE. I just don't buy CE's normally but in this case I was sure thinking about it. This game is good, very good and lots of fun and things to do. If you have played any of the other Legend games you will know and this one is the best I think. Very well drawn, sound is good, games are fun and have added new twists to them. We do get a little companion to help us, but what I find most helpful is the "jump map" so we don't have to do so much back and forth. The game keeps you busy from beginning to end and I found it challenging. The help button is good. You can skip some of the HOS if you want to. Some of the other reviews will give you a much better step by step on the game, no use my repeating it. I will play this game over and over and enjoy it every time. I hope you do too.

as good as it gets
just about perfect game - gorgeous to look at - novel idea of an ancient artefact with benefits - a Ship made of human bones (nothing to do with pirates as I thought) - plenty of memory tests as A LOT of running back and forth to remember what goes where - and engaging HOGS. Puzzles ok - and excellent value - about 7-8 hours gameplay on average I should think, and the best sort of hint - fast fill and precise instruction 'go to hall and release crystal with knife' - wish more would do this - a hint should help move the game along not be a source of frustration slowly filling up and then giving only the vaguest idea - have no idea why game producers include a hint that is difficult to use .... ?? WOuld recommend this game to grown adults like me too, not just the youngsters, v enjoyable bit of escapism, thank you Elephant and BigFish

LEAVE THEM BONES ALONE!
As the story goes, explorers found a mass grave of human skeletons and unleashed a curse upon the whole town! Now a posessed woman is stealing everyones souls leaving behind a zombie bag of bones and when the pilot of your crashed plane becomes her latest victim you begin to scour the town to find a way to defeat her. Great story, you should also try the other Hallowed Legends, great crisp graphics and a talking crow to fill you in on the towns history as well as help you in those hard to reach areas. There is a lot to do in this game, the HOS are slightly interactive such as pick up the knife and cut the orange in half. There are 3 modes of difficulity casual/advanced/hardcore, a map that has photos of each scene that will be black and white and in color if there is something to do in that area and you can quickly travel to that location. The mini games are fun such as filling tubes up to equal the tube amount next to it. This version doesn't have morphing objects or achievements but there is still a lot of activities going on and is well worth the purchase.

This is definitely one of the better games. I bought the SE but I am sure the CE was well worth buying too. I am getting a little wary of the CE market as most of them are not worth the extra money and are way to short but I don't think this would be the case here. This game has everything, intrigue, plot, great mini games and it lasted for ages. I like to play the hard mode in games and this one certainly made me think. Music is good, visually superb and the play throughout is smooth. I really enjoyed this one and I am sure you will too.

Another success from Elephant!
Really enjoyed this game.
Interesting game play, jump map, HOs a bit 'junk pile' but not too many of them and great puzzles.
Well worth the money!

Elephant games never disappoint! Another fantastic and original story, with stunning graphics, very good sound, funny helping friends, amazing interactive HOS and nice puzzles, some on the easy side some on the challenging one! A lot of beautiful locations to explore, many things to do in every one! Is a fluid game, easy to follow, but also making you think a bit from time to time to figure out what to do or where to go! It took me more then 5 hours to complete the full adventure in hardcore mode (no hints or skip button) and I liked a lot the "happy ending", with the evil Hel becaming almost friendly....I played the CE, with a very good bonus chapter, achievements and collectibles but the main game ends conclusively so, if you passed by the CE, don't miss this one, a really fantastic and enjoyable game! We wait for the next one!

Loved the graphics
This was a great game to play. Lots to do and the level of challenge was OK. Plenty to try and remember i.e. what to do and where. The map does help though and you can jump to an active place where you needed to do something.
The bonus game was good fun also.
