Fierce Tales: Marcus' Memory Collector's Edition
What a disappointment!!!
I tried this game because it had 5 stars when I first viewed it. I thought it must be pretty great! HUGE letdown!!
The best thing about this is the scenery, which isn't all that stunning in itself. The artwork is good, but it's completely maritime-ish, with all the scenes looking pretty similar... nothing really stood out.
The HOP's were all boring and the mini games were easy enough for a ten year old. I play all games on casual.. I don't really care about the challenge usually, more about the fun factor, but these games were so easy they were pointless.
The mini games and HOP's are few and far between, yet there aren't a lot of items lying around to pick up either. I'm halfway through the game and have played 6 mini games and 5 HOP's (I know this because of the achievement count).
It's mostly, enter a new location to get ONE item, go back to a previous location to use it to get another SINGLE item, etc.. on and on. So not much of doing anything besides opening up the map and/ or walking to your next destination.
The biggest challenge was finding the "hidden" items throughout the game, but that was only because there are 3 different types, so you have to be on the lookout for what type of object (a sea creature, turtle, or shells), will be in that scene. Even that got boring incredibly fast.
I just started the 3rd chapter and am not only quitting the game, but deleting it from my computer. I've played literally hundreds of games, especially from BigFish (which is my favorite source for games), but I've only given up on a game like this once before. Even if a game is only so-so, I stick with it and finish. I'm really pretty easy going as far as games go.... but there's no way I'm spending another minute on this game. I really cannot believe I spent 3 chapters already on it. I guess I was hoping it would get better, but it hasn't.
This is the worst game I've EVER played and don't understand why anyone else thinks this game is even decent. Please don't waste your money or your time!!!

I liked it but . . . . . . . . . .
I purchased the CE after trialing, set the game to hardcore mode and prepared myself for a challenge. To my surprise I finished the game well before I expected to finish, and was very disappointed that it was so simple.
The story was a little boring with nothing new or exiting, no interesting twists or turns and not much thinking required.
A pretty simple, straight forward game.

No, it is NOT a relaxing hidden object game if you must perform tasks in precisely the pattern the game wants you to. That is being led around by the nose. Frankly, I'm very disappointed, because the artwork made me want to stay in the game . I like searching for objects, I'm willing to wander all over the place and back and forth to find things that will satisfy one condition or other. But combining object outlines and a specific sequence that then allows you to find other stuff. Sorry, no sale. I like the dolphins and turtles and would have hung around except for the sense that I was being dragged round. Ugh.

This was a fun game except the coins were impossible to find and there were no clues or hints as to where they were. Help was unhelpful
