Living Legends: Ice Rose
No ending for standard edition!!!!
I was going to give this game 4 or 5 stars. Maybe four, because it's not Syberia. But for a hidden object game this would be a winner, except for one thing. The ending had been chopped off and reserved for a collectors' edition, and there is no way to upgrade. So am I going to shell out big bucks for a whole new game I'd have to replay? Forget it. Lesson learned. I'll be getting my games on an ipod from here on out. And avoid this developer.

I was really trying to like this game during the trial, but I just couldn't. The graphics and sound quality are excellent, but there's not much point for the excellent sound quality, if the only things you here are some wooshy noises and an extremely repetitive tune that is so depressing that you're losing your will to live. There's no voice overs. The story line: Lover went missing thanks to some evil witch (this time some winter entity), go out and find him in some iced over castle.
The HOG's are very crisp and clear, but I was more than annoyed when I was expected to find 'mouse' and 'lace', then had to use two hints only to find out that the 'mouse' was in fact a 'rat' and the 'lace' was a 'ribbon'. I'm getting really tired about these stupid errors and excuses like: "English is not our native language" really don't cut it for me any longer (it isn't mine either) and if the devs of LL:Ice Rose do call English their native language then I expect a bit more attention to detail.
The puzzles and mini games are so pathetically easy that a trained chimp could solve them. So I really don't grasp the option of choice for three different difficulties, as there is absolutely no need having to skip them.
I am really disappointed about this game.

Loved The Journey...HATED THE ENDING! Get the CE!
The graphics were beautiful, and the game play was challenging, but not difficult. You'll need to go back and forth a lot to complete tasks.
The only problem I had was getting off the elevator. Turns out you just need to turn around. An exit sign with an arrow pointing to the side would've been a welcome addition at that point. I had to search the forums to find the solution, and it seemed a lot of others had the same problem too.
While there could've been a little more character development, it was an easy story to follow. I absolutely loved the overall storyline of this game....until the end of the SE. It just ends on a cliff hanger. No wrap up. No "Happily Ever After", Not even a "The End".
You're getting ripped off with the SE. I absolutely highly recommend the CE. Other reviewers say you get the final chapter...the wrap up..."The End" with the CE. I'm just too angry to spend any extra money to see one last chapter.
Thanks for ripping out the last page of a great book!
I grabbed this one the day it came out. Next time, I'll restrain myself from snagging anything by 4 Friends Games until the reviews are posted.

All the scenes looked the same, bad ending, feel cheated.
All the scenes look the same. It fits the title of the game, but it was boring and I didn't know where to go. There was no map and the ending was abrupt and bad. I hate that they make SE and CE. It's become a cheat. Just make a good game for everyone at a descent price. The few CE I've gotten haven't been worth the extra money, so I don't but them at all.

There is just nothing new here. Puzzles are typical and easy. I would have loved it when I first found BF, now I will not buy it at $2.99 esp learning that the ending is missing. There are so many better games to play.
