House of 1000 Doors: Serpent Flame
Enjoyable and worth playing.
An excellent game - Superb Map that allows you to jump to where you need to be however that can make you a little lazy in working out what you need to do! Decent level of puzzles although could be a little more taxing I think.
Why is it though, you are enjoying a game and you get towards the end and suddenly, that's it, game over. No exposition, no warning, just credits. This is probably the only reason I haven't given it a 5*.

Not Too Difficult Yet Really Fun!
This is a good introductory game and the level difficulty is perfect for me. The puzzles aren't like trying to solve Rubik's Cube, if you know what I mean.
The mapping system is a big plus so you won't get lost and wonder around lost while not knowing what to do next. There are hints, and you can also skip the puzzles if you find them too frustrating.
I like the story as well. The voice acting is a bit off but it doesn't take away from the fun of the game. The hidden objects portions of the game are numerous and well done. Give the free trial a chance. This is a fun time! I'm off to buy another game from the series!

Not too Bad
I liked the storyline of this game. The puzzles were not too challenging. I played on expert mode and still beat the game in less than 4 hours.
I like the map feature to quick move to an area with actions to do. But that does make it easier to beat.
The cut scenes are nicely done, and the music is really good.
Overall, I would recommend the game. Nice game to unwind with.

Ends too suddenly!!!!
Have bought all the 1000 Doors games. Loved the first two but this one seemed to end very abruptly. Felt as though my computer decided it had enough and finished mid game.
Otherwise I would have given it a 5 Star.
Obviously there must be another part coming (soon I hope).
Interesting all the way through. Almost played without a break. You just want to see what happens next. Hence my surprise when it ended without actually ending....Play it through and you will know what I mean.......

Beautiful but kinda boring
The graphics were amazing, and lots of different things to do, HOG, mini puzzles, and lots of traveling about from location to location to location in order "to get the job done" There was essentially no music--some scenes there was some--it wasn't annoying, just not captivating. For me..music can make or break the game. Some folks will love this one, but I never buy the games like these, after I've played the game once, I never want to play it again. There are no points ($$$) to rack up. Just not much fun. But as I said, the graphics were fantastic.

take it or leave it...
I wasn't overly impressed with this game. There are others that are better. Thank goodness that there was a map otherwise I would've rated this a poor and couldn't recommend. (2013)

Not as good
This is my first review, so it will probably be choppy. Sorry.
Bought SE based on other two games of series. Big disappointment. Have to buy CE to get "beyond" objects, which didn't make me happy. I seldom find buying a CE worth the extra money. I used the beyond objects as a good excuse to replay the other games to find them all without help. Ending of game quick and frustrating and I personally didn't like it. House was morphed and only resembled the original house from the outside. Map was helpful as I hate to backtrack. Not sure if I will buy the next game in the series, because I'm sure there will be one.

I have played the other House of 1000 Doors games and found this one to be not so good. The store is cheesy, the game isn't that long and every inch of it is so predictable. This would not be a game that I would recommend.
