Reveries: Sisterly Love
It was pretty good
When I first saw the CE came out, I never would have thought it was made by ERS, their graphic style is changing for the better, with nice puzzles, HOG games and great voice over as usual. I especially like the rabbit. The game story is not the most original, with witch, prince and kidnapping, maybe because of the cute gnome the story changes a bit and it becomes enjoyable. The prince, however looks annoying and kind of lazy, how did he expect a girl to do something else instead and he just waits?! I especially love the end with options, although I don't know what happen if I chose the other option, because I don't want to replay it again just yet. This is kind of differnent than dark, creepy games that many ERS games represent, and everything here is in bright environment. Truly recommended. If you have some money to spare, I would suggest you to try the CE as well.

I enjoyed this one. It had some different, fun puzzles and the HOS's had some difficult items to find, which I prefer. If a game is too easy I tend not to enjoy it. I play in hardcore mode and very rarely use the hint button, walk through or strategy guide because that takes away from the challenge. Also, I figure it's good for the ol' brain to have to figure things out for myself. On top of that, it makes the game last much longer when I have to do my own detective work. This game had a nice length, good music, well-done voiceovers, and about the right amount of challenge. The animals were especially cute, if you like that kind of thing. You'll get your money's worth out of this one.

Good but not great
Based on sample only. The graphics were gorgeous and the story line as well as characters were entertaining. The cut scenes seem to take a long time to load and leave. This game is very linear which I am not a huge fan of. In order to move on you must complete certain tasks in a certain order. The challenges were not overly challenging, but it was entertaining. I love all the different animal interactions.

Not to bad
Reveries: sisterly love
Well this game has good graphics. The sounds are good as are the voiceovers. I like the fact that you can choose your ending that was a very creative idea. The HO?s were good. The game was a little on the short side for me. The puzzles were fun and were not to hard. I thought the story line was well written and I did enjoy it.
Altogether this was an ok game not a top game but none the less not to bad. I would give this a 3.5 stars instead of 4 but mostly due to the length of the game.
Hope ya all enjoy and have fun ?:)

Better late than never? Stocking up games for our long, hot summers.

This is a fun game but have a disappointed ending. I was thinking it will have 2 different ending by my different choice. I played twice but both choice will lead to same ending. So disappointed!!!

Review based on completed game in casual mode.
Animation/VOS - Good
IHOS - Variety of find pairs that work together, lists, silhouettes and find x number of same item. Clear with small to larger objects. Repeated locations.
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Good variety. Very unique from the norm of sliders and rings. Skip is always available.
Hint - Moderate charge. Gives clues and directions.
Diary - Contains story, photos, sketches, etc. Includes transport map.
Inventory - Can be locked in place. Items used fairly quickly in other locations.
Random Click Penalty - None
Good game so throw in the line and reel this one in.

This was a nice game. Graphics were good and storyline ok. My main problem with this game was its lenght. Way too short. For a 50th game, it seems to me, it should have been longer. I finished the game in 21/2 hours. It should have been at least 5 hours long. So that part disappointed me. Other than that, nice game.

Although there are collectibles (fortune nuts) shown in the walkthrough and mentioned in some of the reviews, the standard version does NOT have this feature.
There are no collectibles or achievements whatsoever in the SE, which is very disappointing, because based on the description in the walkthrough and the reviews I expected some additional collecting fun and bought the game.
Showing screenshots from the Collector's Edition in the walkthrough for the Standard Edition is misleading and unfair.
The game is beautiful and fun, though, and someone who doesn't need collectibles will most definitely have a good time with this.

Nice but not Engaging
This is one of the harder reviews for me, because there is really nothing wrong with this game. It works well, has a story, has good puzzles,etc. But when you put it all together the result is sort of underwhelming. It just didn't "grab me".
Pros: Graphics are fine and game play is smooth. It's broken up into scenes, with a lot of "go here/do this/go there/get that" - games easy to medium. Story is interesting although the "romance" aspect is nearly non-existent. Nice ending.
Cons: You have to click exactly on something to get it to activate. There are a lot of background characters who seem interesting (magic rabbit, rhyming goblin) but they really never get much play or story. Not all items are intuitively used (i.e. why would I use "X" to make "y" work?).
Overall, it's not a bad game, and I'd recommend it because taste is a very subjective thing.
