Love Chronicles: Salvation Collector's Edition
ANOTHER GREAT "LOVE CHRONICLES" GAME
This is another great game in the "Love Chronicles" series. The graphics are awesome, clear and bright, and the voiceovers can be played without the rest of the sounds. This is always a plus for me, as I like to hear the voices, but get bored with the background music and other sounds.
The hint button worked excellently whenever the map didn't get you to the exact place you needed to be. The map was interactive, saving a bunch of going back and forth, something that always spoils a game for me. And, even though the map got you to the next place fast, the game did not keep all the locations open to the very beginning of the game, thus also reducing the amount of back and forth necessary to play this game.
The hidden object scenes were crisp and not too hard. There are lots of puzzles, some of which I had to skip as I am not good at some styles of puzzles and I don't want to take the time to go to the strategy guide to get the solution. But with the strategy guide built in, that would have been easy to do.
The bonus chapter fit neatly into the main game and was pretty long, as was the main game.
Just an excellent game. I have now played all the "Love Chronicles" games and wish there could be more.

What a fantastic story
This is such a fantastic story taking us to places unknown. Both frightening and enchanting. there is a great map and you can teleport to different locations via hint button - which by the way works very well and quickly. the story line is classic - good versus evil - but the way it is told is extraordinary.

A new favorite!
This game was harder than other hidden object games I've played, but the mini-puzzles were very different and a whole lotta fun! The ending was a little cheesy but a great game all in all.

The 3rd in the series good, fun, just not great
None of the chronicles have done all the great. Fun games just lack the great quality.
Has voice over, good music. The graphics are good just not crisp.
Has a map that will take you to where you need to go.
Hint button works good and fairly fast.
3 modes of play.
The HOS are different in you have to find items to put together your item to use. They are not hard.
The puzzles are quite easy also. some may give you a challenge but most are easy.
Lots of clicking to do in this one just to find things.
There is not a real good flow to this game to me. Lots of running back and forth.
All in all not a bad game just the love chronicles have never been a great game. They need to play some ERS games to find out how to improve these games.
There is an adventure here just lacking the wow factor.

Really enjoyed playing this game!
Very good game. Played 'hard' mode and it took about 4 hours to finish. The graphics were super, and the music in keeping with the mood of the game. Wish more game devs offered a sparklle free mode, that does allow you to skip puzzles and get hints. Skip and hint took longer to refill, but not laboriously so.
A nice variety of HOS, and puzzles. Nothing new in the puzzle dept., but well put together and excellent graphics.
Hint system was excellent; I liked the way the hint took you to the place where there were things to do.
The map was good, but at times the objective was incorrect. Never needed the SG.
A little too much hand holding...we have brains enough to know a screw requires a screwdriver!
The bonus content wasn't value for money, too short and too many bog standard HOGs.
All in all enjoyed this CE!

5 Stars To The Standard Edition
BASED ON DEMO
This game is not CE standard, but it is an EXCEPTIONALLY DELIGHTFUL game.
As a SE, this game promises to be VERY ENJOYABLE. The GRAPHICS are BEAUTIFULLY & IMAGINATIVELY drawn. This is a MAGICAL TALE, so you will see some very different pictures of everyday items.
The MUSIC is pleasant and ethereal, but the AMBIENT SOUND is really good. I searched everywhere tracking down that mouse I could hear, and as it turned out, it was important that I did.
The GAMEPLAY is HO with a FEW (SO FAR EASY) PUZZLES, and a goodly EMPHASIS on NOT DIFFICULT adventure.
There is a JOURNAL, an INTERACTIVE JUMP MAP, and a HINT that JUMPS you to the suggested area.
The HO SCENES are a major plus. They come in MANY TYPES. So far, INTERACTIVE LIST, SILHOUETTES, MISPLACED ITEMS, & make-something-with-stuff-from-this-area. There are also HOS that cannot be unlocked until you find MULTIPLES OF, and FRAGMENTED OBJECT HOS.
The variety of HO types alone makes the game just that much more interesting.
But the BEST thing about this game is the STORY. Having come home from your previous adventures, you discover your earlier foe is taking revenge on your kingdom. In order to stop her, you must TRAVEL BACK TO THE PAST, at a crucial moment in her life, and PREVENT her subversion to EVIL. I know it's been DONE BEFORE, but it is FUN.
Her mother?s MAGICAL AMULETS (4) will prevent this catastrophe, if you can get them in time. And so, your quest. Along the way, I suspect a little romance.
The SG shows 5 CHAPTERS and the BONUS CHAPTER, along with an introduction, which I did not complete within the hour. So I?m thinking the game is a DECENT LENGTH.
I am really enjoying this game, but I would NOT recommend the CE version to the average gamer. We simply expect more than ART GALLERY, MUSIC and BONUS CHAPTER these days.
With this weekend?s sale, perhaps a lot of people will decide to live without the extras, (and I might even be one of them), so to them I say... ENJOY!

Pretty fun game, not sure if it's worth CE price
REVIEW BASED ON ONE HOUR DEMO
I have not played the others in this series, but had no trouble following the plot. It was obvious I was missing some back story, but didn't feel too left out. You are a prince, on a mission to save the witch that has plagued you for so long from becoming evil in the first place.
--3 difficulty modes, which can be changed at any time through the menu.
--5 chapters + bonus chapter. During my hour demo, I made it through most of chapter one.
--Map...Jumpable and with some indication of where you should be to preform a given task. I see another reviewer mentioned that the map indicators are not always right, and I could see that happening given what kind of info it gives.
--Voice overs (but something about them just weren't convincing to me...sounded like the same actor for all the male voices).
--soundtrack was pretty and relaxing.
--Hint/skip button fills quickly on casual mode. Hint works well outside of HOS. Lots of black bar hints on casual, almost too much hand holding...wish I had tried advanced instead.
--HOS...there were quite a few in my demo, but they were varied in type and were all interactive. I had 2-3 lists with junk piles, a couple of FROGs, 2 "put the items back", and one "find x number of items" The scenes were all pretty clear, but some of the items did not look like what I thought I was looking for (the "screwdriver" was not a traditional looking one)
--Puzzles....on the easier side, but still fun.
--SG, stayed open to the last page you were on....honestly, I never used it during the demo.
--no collectibles, no achievements (well, you are collecting gems to install into amulets to break the curse...but as that is intergral to the game, I don't consider it a collectible or extra)
CE extras: SG, wallpapers, conceptual art, and soundtrack
My hour really flew by, and I was caught off guard when the game stopped because time had run out....so I was enjoying the story. If it this had all the normal CE extras like collectibles and achievements, I would be really tempted (takes alot for me to spend the extra for a CE). But story and decent looking length will keep this game in my sites for a SE as long as the ending is wrapped up without the bonus chapter. (I will NOT buy a CE just for bonus content to finish a story line, I hate that, and will not support devs that do it...a CE should have extras, imo...so I will be interested in other's reviewers perspectives of the ending).

Silly Name! Fun Game!
Usually I would never touch a game called ?Love Chronicles? but, being in mood for fairy tale fare and a relaxing quest, it worked for me. I checked out the demos of the previous two games in the series and liked them too, for the same reason.
A definite upgrade for the series, with voice overs this time, improved animation and cutscenes, character interaction and a more immersive storyline. Time travel changes it up a bit as you search for the four amulets necessary to protect Alura from the evil clutches of Zander. Guess we now find out how the "wicked witch" got that way!
Stunning graphics with lots of colour and beautiful artwork. Very light gameplay, varied HOS, familiar puzzles, hint, journal, transporter map, task markers. In other words, the usual. The music relaxes to the point of sleepiness.
Without collectibles and achievements, it really doesn?t offer much as a CE. There is nothing spectacular about this game but it is strangely appealing.
If you need to zone out, de-stress or just have some fun with the kids, consider giving it a try! There?s a great sale this weekend!

BASED ON THE DEMO
A pretty game with beautiful artwork and lovely fantasy locations. An organic look where globes are lit with fireflies, flowers grow on the walls of Hobbit-like dwellings. Villians are not too scary and the theme is not too adult.The HOs are mostly interactive and the puzzles are standard. The map takes player to location witha click. Only negative is that the back button is so close to the inventory box (as in many other games). I will purchase this game, but based on previous player review, will probably wait for the SE.
