Witches' Legacy: Lair of the Witch Queen
A well developed game
This is a good game with many locations to keep you busy.
Lynn wants to track down Elizabeth and kill her for what she did to Tom. It is your job to save Lynn.
This is a sequel to the 1st game and is just as good.
You get a jump map that lets you know where there is something to do.
There is a lot of back and forth so the map helps.
The hint shows an arrow on where to go or circles the place where there's something but won't tell you what to do.
The graphics were a bit grainy in some of the scenes.
Good mix of puzzles and HO'S
I enjoyed this game and will play it again.
Go for it and have fun.

Review of Completed Game...
First of all this game has an actual ending in the standard version that does justice to the game so thank you developers for not short changing us. Secondly, this delightful game is by Elefun and I for one really, really enjoy the games they provide for us.
Let me also say, I usually buy collector's editions but I decided not to for this one for whatever reasoning I can't seem to remember and I have realized that I enjoyed this game more than ever because it had no distractions. There are no tiny coins to find or some weird morphing birds. So as much as I love the extras, it was nice to see a game for the actual storyline and not just extras.
That being said, I really enjoyed this game. I remember the first one because at the time it was a new concept bringing live actors into games and they did it quite well although I am glad they got rid of the live actors in this game because I thought the last game didn't have a lot of flow and it was sometimes hung up on dialogue but this one flowed great and had lovely voiceovers that really matched each character.
I came across a lot of puzzles that involved switching items around or putting all the red beads into the red area etc and I found them quite enjoyable. There were no repeat of games which I enjoyed and the hidden object scenes were interactive. You also have a choice of playing a matching game instead of the hidden object ones which is nice since you play all hidden object scenes at least twice. Nice to have a mixer upper. The difficulty is customizable but I would have liked an option to turn off black bars because they were a little too helpful at times and I like a good challenge.
I see there is now a 3rd one out in this series and I for one am very curious to see where it will take us. This story line is very well done for a story about witches. Its actually quite realistic for what it is. I really like the main heroine that you play and also lynn who is the typical teenager but also a witch so those two things meddle well together.
I will definitely be purchasing more standard editions because it was sooo nice to not be distracted and able to concentrate on the story and get hints when I needed or skips instead of being penalized and not getting the achievements. I could actually focus and a good game DOESNT need all that extra fluff to be an excellent game.
I recommend and even though it does give a brief recap of what happened in the prior one, I really recommend playing them in order.

Game is well done
I enjoyed playing this game. You are trying to keep your niece, who is also a witch, from falling under Morgana's control. You follow her throughout the story and try to stop her from taking revenge for a family member's death. Along the way you encounter all kinds of dangers, spells, and monsters. You solve many HO scenes and complete several mini-games. There is a great hint system, an interactive map, and a small elf who helps you get things that are out of reach. And of course you build up to the final scene where you confront your niece and Morgana. I thought this was very well designed and interesting to play. Definitely recommend it. There are 3 other games in this series and I plan to try them all.

another good game in the ceries
I enjoyed this game, the hint button worked great as did the map - things that really make a difference for me. I don't tend to get CE's since I don't care about extra's and the se was great. I enjoyed the imp that helps you out as well. don't use sound so can't rate that but only issue I had was the end, I think I helped everyone but that was not as clear as I would have liked. otherwise a great game and I really liked the two options for games. actually finding objects or matching items. I switched back and forth depending on how easy or hard one was.

Annoying imp is not for me
Decent HO game. Personally, I found the pupil-less imp annoying and a bit unsightly, although some players will find him fun. Compared to other HO games, the storyline was a bit flat and uninteresting. Thank goodness for the free trial before purchasing a game.

Don?t really understand why people are raving over this game!
The puzzles are obscure and the info on them not always clear
The HOS are sometimes difficult because they use the trick of heavy blending so even when you use the hint button to find an object you still can?t always see where it was!!
The storyline is just about OK.
Played better games.

Review of Finished Game
I didn't care for this game much. It started off good, with a nice storyline, but the plot disappeared after that and it was just running around doing stuff for no reason. Thank God for an interactive jump map! Some stuff made no sense at all. My pickaxe could break a stone wall, but not the glass over a fire extinguisher. Only a rock would do for that task. I did like the very end of it, it was just the entire middle part that bored me to tears. There were a couple good puzzles, most were pretty easy. The HOs were easy, you could switch to a matching game if you preferred. There are so many better games out there that I can't really recommend this one unless you've run out of those better ones. I will never replay this game. I do tend to rate my games by storyline, though, so if that doesn't matter to you, you will like this game better than I did.

No Background Music
Sadly, this game seems to follow the latest trend of very little to no background music. This makes the game very boring for me. Otherwise it might've been a very good game.
