Haunted Legends: The Curse of Vox Collector's Edition
the worst of the bunch
i've enjoyed some of the haunted legends games, but this one was pretty bad. I suspect that the dialogue was written in another language and then badly translated, some of it made little sense. It was also pretty badly drawn, and the gameplay was a snooze. And for the love of Pete could you guys please ditch the evil dwarf? It's a nasty stereotype that should be retired.

This could have been fun ...
...but it wasn't. Most of the time I had to refer to the SG (in easy mode too# to find out what to do next which was most annoying as I really like working it out for myself. I enjoyed collecting the poltergeists but missed most of them as I just didn't see them, I was so busy trying to work out what to do next without having to resort to the SG and failing dismally most of the time. Thankfully I could skip through the extremely irritating bad-tempered gnome person's antics. Most game baddies are amusing with their "I'm going to take over the world" rants, he wasn't!
The achievements which I normally love to collect were not worth the bother plus I had to search all over the game to try and find where they were listed. The gardening thing was weird and not in place with the storyline. Needless to say I also didn't bother with this part of the game.
Provided I wasn't in a scene where something needed to be done, once I had the tool to use, the hint button worked well. If I was in one of those scenes then all the hint button did was highlight it rather than taking me to where I could do something straightaway. I got all bar one ring but would the hint button take me to the missing one - nope.
The map was woeful, way too large and would have been helpful if it had shown where something needed to be done rather than just be somewhere to leap to but without a reason to do so.
This would have been a better game as a standard rather than a CE though with that map and hint button perhaps not. I don't know what the bonus chapter was like as I'd had enough at the end of the main game.
I will end on a positive - I enjoyed the puzzles once I worked out what to do #though sometimes with the SG's help# so much that I did them all without thinking of skipping them at any stage.

You better love puzzles
I'm not a puzzle person at all. Their were so many that I forgot what the story line was about. The ending was well like hitting a brick wall for me. I had to skip all the puzzles and man was their a ton of them. For me this game is a thumbs down because of all the puzzles, otherwise the art work was very good, lost the storyline early on, didn't get the garden part of it. For me the skip button took forever to fill. I could not wait to finish the game and I'll never go back and play it again. Really disappointed with this game.

No game, just puzzles and HOS - if that is the new trend, I quit
This whole "game" is just masses of puzzles and HO scenes - there is no feeling whatsoever for a story or an adventure. What is next??? maybe all categories thrown into one game.
Well if you want to sell games, then please let your customers choose and have the categories they like - after all we pay for it.
