Rite of Passage: Child of the Forest
ANGRY TREES EVERYWHERE!!!
Another game that did not hold my interest for more that two to three hours, if I played that long.
Animation/VOS - Okay
IHOS - Clear. The norm of small to larger objects.
Hint - Slow to moderate charge. Did not have the patience for this. Gives clues and directions.
Journal - The usual contents - story, photos, sketches, etc.
Random Click Penalty - None
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Some very unusual ones.
This game, to me, was boring. Too much back tracking.
Not for me.

The cursor didn't work on the skip. I had to uninstall the game. It would freeze in places and the voices were not in sync, Very dissappointed. Pd 4.99 but lost it after just a few minutes in play.

Too abstract for me.
I liked the first one because the plot involved sorta real people. This one was a silly mystical story and I was glad to be done with it. The graphics are excellent, but I didn't care about the characters, and the monsters and need for light aspect is ridiculous.

just could not get into this one
I saw the great reviews, played the demo and bought it thinking it would be great but after playing for what seemed like forever I just got board and had to give up. the game went on way to long. I wasn't entirely sure what I was trying to do. had to use the hint button constantly because no way to know what to do or where to go but the hint button took too long to restore. unfortunately just can't recommend this one.

Hint Button Doesn't Work
I played the Demo, or tried to, but soon found out that the Hint button is useless. It will just keep pointing to an active area, even though you don't have what you need, yet. And it doesn't point to areas where you can actually do something.
I've never run across such a bad Hint system in my many years of playing these games. Very frustrating and not worth my time or money.

Only negative review I've ever written
This game was horrible! The directions for the minigames were very unclear, in a variety of different ways. I never skip and I had to give up on several, not because they were too hard, but because the directions didn't match what you really had to do to move on. The graphics are pretty, I guess, but the story makes no sense. Save your money.
