Untold History: Descendant of the Sun
Good if you have a free game close to expiration
This review is based on the completed game.
I enjoyed the game but felt it was a bit tedious at times. No need to by the CE though the SG would have been helpful on some of the games. The skip loads pretty quickly though.
You have an interactive map that shows where an action can be taken and you can jump to that location by clicking on the map. If you dont' use the map, there is a lot of back and forth.
I thought some of the HOS were a bit too dark but I was able to find the items without using the hint button.
I don't usually skip the video portions because I know someone worked hard to put them in there but I did on this one for some reason. I guess the game just didn't grab me.

A hard game to figure out
This is a hard game to play. I did not like it. The game was hard to understand what to do next. I would not recommend it.

Not bad not bad
Although the storyline was rather predictable and done to death, the old - you are the chosen one who must find all the elements to defeat the bad whoever and save us all, I did think this game was pretty good. Nice music that changed with the locations, some fun and different mini games and some slightly interactive HOS. The graphics were good and the VO's with the exception of the squeaky high pitched fairy thing, were quite well done. There were a ton of inventory objects to find and use that were sometimes not so easy. It had a decent jump map and hint system. I really liked all the little creatures that ran around the scenes and I liked flying on the winged statue. All in all a good use of a free coupon. Actually I would say for a SE game this one was pretty good.

Not what I expected.
This is an older game and played as such. Thankfully, I could use a map to jump around and finish this game quickly. Not sure how they could make a CC out of this game.

untold history remains untold!!
Has anybody been able to make sense of the story line? Maybe it's just me,but I found this game to have a rather muddled story in that at the end of the game I felt confused and rather let down. I didn't feel like anything made sense. What was resolved exactly?To me it felt unfinished. It was sort of fun, but as I said, rather a let down at the end.

Not sure it was even worth a coupon
I found the story line difficult to follow. I found some of the puzzles impossible (the second last battle, because I simply could not make anything work), and a couple of the solutions, bizarre. The ending was totally unsatisfactory. The music was OK. The graphics attractive. The HOs were clear enough, but OTW, I disliked the game and only finished it because I don't like leaving games unfinished. I would never recommend it.

Disjointed & Tedious
The game was very choppy and crashed frequently. Also, there must be something lost in translation, as the directions for a few puzzles were circuitous and oddly worded.

Ok hidden object game
This hidden object game was not for me. To me it was a bit boring. Just could not get into the game. But please try it, you perhaps may like it.
