Fierce Tales: Marcus' Memory Collector's Edition
The game could be perfect, excellent, top-notch but for this hint that was so unpleasant. ?I can use something here? was like a spell to drive me crazy.
In all other respects it is very good.

Well worth the CE Price
I enjoyed this game from beginning to end. The puzzles were challenging and the HOS scenes were just cluttered piles. Collecting turtles, shells and sea creatures added to the game as did the achievements. An interactive map is always a plus for me in a game and this one told where actions could be taken and allowed me to jump to the location. I recommend this game as a CE.

VERY NICE INDEED
You get a lot of stuff with this CE. Besides the usual stuff: 22 achievements; collecting 44 shells to buy items for your dolphin pool and your aquarium; 19 sea creatures which are in a separate album; and 35 turtles. You can turn your interactive map on or off. Rather nice story any mystery of where Marcus has been and who are these mysterious sea creatures who infiltrated the sea village.
HOS are list or silhouette based and are very nicely detailed and colorful. The silhouettes especially are progressively interactive, which I really like - i.e., you combine items to get a new object only to have to combine it again to get something else. With only silhouettes, it takes a little thinking of whether you are combining items or looking for one that is already completed within the HOS. Didn't like the dark screens while changing locations or looking at close-ups - seems that graphics have come far enough to make the transitions quite smooth.

Dolphins, what more does one want?
This is based on the first 20 minutes of the sample. You are Marcus (a rare Big Fish occurrence playing a male) who is lifelong friends with Delores and Vasco. That name right away tells you he is evil. The story (so far) and graphics are quite lovely and it's nice not to have a depressing horror game like far too many recent BFgames. The only problem I have is that the journal pages seem to be in a haphazard order. I kept getting confused which way to read them, left to right or right to left. Neither made too much sense, but that's probably me. There are a slew of extras and side games like buying things for your own aquarium or things for the dolphin sidekick to play with. Oh, did I mention you (as Marcus) get a dolphin sidekick? Dolphins NEVER GET BORING! Always rock! So yeah, I'll probably buy this.

Could Have Been More ...
Good Graphics, Sound & Effects ...
The Story Was OK, And I Thought The First Part Of The Game Ended Well With The Bad Guy Slipping Away Into Hiding ... He Was Definitely A Guy That You Did Not Want On Your Friends List ... I Expected Him To Come Back In The Extra Chapter With A Renewed Anger, But He Had Gone Soft Instead ...

Fierce Tales: Marcus' Memories is actually a very nice game. According to the Demo, it only shows 3 chapters and I'm hoping that is not all. There is a considerable amount of extra to do ie You have an aquarium to decorate, purchase toys for the dolphin and collect sea creatures that you locate to put in the album along with collecting 35 turtles. Some of the objects are difficult to locate and takes time and effort. There are about 17 achievements along with your regular extras. There are 3 levels of action: casual, advanced and hardcore. The hos have silhouettes, and lists from the time I played. Also, you have the choice to set the map on interactive or not. It was an interesting tale of a young man who has been knocked out and thrown into the see in an attempt to kill him off because of his interest in Delores who has also captured the interest of Vasco who is wildly jealous. You must get you memory back to find out what is happening.

Save the world or love story??
I thought the story wandered all over and seemed to not know which way it wanted to go. The puzzles were first rate and the HO scenes were well done but it just didn't seem to come together over all. Unfortunately I bought this and was disappointed that the story jumped into the drink....

Maybe I do not see what others do
I am unsure if I will purchase this game. The HO were very few in the demo time which would make me say this game is more on the adventure side. Which is great, I do enjoy those types of game a tad more. Classic two man fighting over a lady, but one of the gentlemen (if you call him that) is evil and wants her even though she doesn't want him. The evil man tries to get rid of Marcus but he continuously fails. I am unsure how long this game is. You can pick three different levels of difficulty which is nice. The mini puzzle give you information, just in case you don't understand what they want. There is a spot to add the map but I did but did not see where I could access it from, which is ok because I like to explore on my own. Some parts seem child like. Really unsure about this game.

Really did not like HOGS - junk piles. Couldn't get into game. I must be bored. Interactive HOS also didn't move me. I'll try to finish, but I think any other game will catch my interest.
