European Mystery: Scent of Desire
Hauntingly Beautiful Hidden Object Adventure Game
Based on the Demo
The soundtrack for this game is superb, hauntingly beautiful. The voiceovers are very well done. The graphics and visuals are beautiful, amazing.
The storyline is interesting: young women are disappearing all over the countryside, bodies are turning up completely dehydrated. There is a story within a story because there is a plague in addition to the strange disappearances. The Detective is called in to solve the mysteries.
The hidden object scenes are not too easy, not too hard, very entertaining and interactive. The mini puzzles are great. They are all interesting and a lot of fun ranging from easy to moderately hard.
You get an interactive map that is very handy, a journal, and a scent catcher you use to find scents and make perfumes from them.
It is a very interesting multi faceted game.
It was an immediate buy for me.

awesome best hidden object game ever
I loved this game so much, my only regret is I didn't get the collector edition. I bet the bonus game was awesome. the storyline, the hidden objects, it was really top notch. I couldn't put this game down, its very close to the perfect hidden object game

This was my first murder mystery adventure game and it was amazing. I won't say too much about the story line since I don't want to spoil it but there better be a sequel game! 5 stars!!

Great story line and unusual that it had a mystical tone with out going out in to full oddities. I like stories that are plausible and not so fantastical. This had the charm of historic Europe with a bit of a dark twist that it occurred during the plague. It was not filled with corpses and grotesque beings, which pretty much ends a game for me. I took my time with this one to enjoy the artwork around every corner. Sound was great ....really nothing bad to say at all!

Wow was this one fun
This game has a lot of creative challenges. Story is intriguing and the scenes are beautiful. Going to wait a month or two then play it again.

Two things I really liked about this HO game.
1) The HO segments included some three step processes to obtain the object.
2) Making the potions/perfumes. Was fun gathering the ingredients.
Also liked the fact you could go to the map and click where you wanted to go instead of having to back-up all the time.

Great Game, Story and Graphics!
The graphics and video integration throughout this game were very impressive and really helped the story line come to life. There are a lot of different scenes, all beautifully rendered, and a map to help the player quickly navigate from one area to another which I appreciate.
The mini-games are clever and challenging, but solvable with a bit of patience and perseverance. Throughout the game the player collects 'scents' that they then mix according to recipes to create 'perfumes/potions' that help solve obstacles.
Although the game seemed to be over quickly, it was really fun and very well done. Kudos to the developers!!
