Slow but good
In the beginning I really didn't like this game. I stuck with it though through the whole demo and I'm glad I did. It gets much better as time goes on. It's not excellent caliber, but I really liked it. Probably a buy in SE. Disappointed though it doesn't have any HO scenes.

Call of Love
I just finished this game and can say that in the start was not impressed but once you get into the game itself it is really cute and enjoyable, I had to find out the ending so yes the story line holds you, I had fun and isn't that why we play a game, love the fairies and little dragon and magic of the story, I personally will play this game over and enjoy each time.

still deciding but heading toward a buy for me
I like the dragon and the story line has potential but the hint button (dragon) only sort of works, sometimes it tells me where to go some times not which is frustrating. there is a map which is great and the map really works well. I think I will wait till this comes out as a regular, collectors edition does not seem necessary but I think it will be a buy for me.

A Bit of fun
Like some others I thought this was a nice game, graphics were lovely. Main characters voice was irritating so played with voice overs turned off. Nice to have a bit of fantasy and magic for a change instead of the gory good and evils.

MORE INTERESTING THE DEEPER YOU GO
This is a different type of game than I normally play. It's an adventure game with an intriguing story which gets you more interested as you go deeper into it. I found myself liking it more and more, though I was somewhat mediocre about it at first.
WHAT YOU GET:
3 sound volumes
2 game modes
journal with map, notes, tasks and memos
separate map without opening journal if wanted
tasks listing without opening journal if you prefer
a potion lab
You'll find 70 memos along the way that will give clues and tell the story of the felizes and humans, the war, disappearances, and other interesting facts. You will also be given potion recipes periodically and ingredients you find will automatically go to the potion lab instead of into your inventory tray. The potion lab is given to you by a shaman in the forest and she will appear periodically to help you since she knows the land of the felizes (and of the humans) so well.
Something always seems to happen that gives you clues as to what direction to head to next. That's good because there are a few unexpected twists and turns to the story.
HINTS are in the form of a dragon, which will go so far as to show you where you can do something and what inventory item to use (which is helpful because it isn't always clear that an inventory item can be used there). There are little balls of light in various scenes that will recharge the dragon. But unlike some games, you won't waste the charge by clicking on it if your dragon doesn't need recharging.
OTHER STUFF: Dialogue is written and spoken; clicking on a dialogue popup will hurry it along (since you can read faster than listen to the spoken words). Voices are middle-of-the-road - neither great nor terrible.
Visuals are pleasant to look at. Animations are very, very good. I think this game was listed as a HOG, but it's not the usual type where there are HO scenes. You do have to find stuff to complete the puzzles though, and they are in the various environments other than the one you're in. If there's one drawback to the game, it's that the story is occasionally a little slow to develop - but I prefer fast-paced stories.
SUMMARY: Well thought-out story and gameplay. I'm not sure that the CE has enough to offer, so I've opted for the SE.

Ah........Love is the air.
Based on the demo, I really like this game. Them story line is a fairy tale. It's fun and entertaining. The characters are really sweet. I'm a sucker for a good romantic story.So all in all, very good game.Anyway, you can't keep a good man/cat down. Here kitty kitty. Meee- ooow.

Interesting, but sluggish
The story begins with a Romeo and Juliet type love story. Two people (one werecat and one human) fall in love but families are mortal enemies. Aurelio has been wounded by a silver bullet and escapes to the Forbidden Forest where Evaline follows to find him laying on the forest floor. Her goal is to save her love.
The strategy guide was not accessible with purchasing the game and the extras were typical of the collector's editions without all the morphing, collectibles etc. You did need to collect 70 memos in the game but they mainly had to do with descriptions and some of the back story of how she came to be. The map is interactive and can jump which is a good thing because of the action being strewn all over the place. The hint button (a cute little dragon that she has tamed) is good and leads you to where you need to go, but it has a lot of hand holding. There are two levels, regular and expert. I played on regular for the demo's sake. There are also globes of light to refill the dragon if it is not charged. It was actually not bad, but as I said the hand holding was a little much and the game seemed a little sluggish in play.

Werecats, Dragons, Idiot Fathers
First. When trying the demo you can't use the SG, so there is no way of knowing if it's good, awful, or indifferent. This ticks me off. If it turns out it isn't worth buying the CE for I will uninstall any future demos that have the same feature. No matter how good the game.
So far the game is fun, a little scary, with a cute baby dragon hint keeper & helper.
It plays well, hints are helpful (better be as you can't use the SG). The graphics and sound are clear and crisp. It's worth playing, if the SG is good. Sounds are not too irritating.
Now, if someone could come up with a game where the father isn't an idiot. <sigh>

Needed better animation and cut scenes...
So I got a pet dragon in the first five minutes, and I have a pot to make potions in, apparently for the entire game,There are portals and bad guys, and a helpful witch with a secret door, as well as the common side lines of finding odd bits of papers for the achievement category, yet somehow this game feels like it just nipped a bit of the better parts of games we have all loved and kind of cloned the story. And even that would be ok, if the level of animation was as advanced and as technologically awesome.as the other games it feels to me like it copied. The art work was imaginative, it a bit blurry, and the map was helpful. Puzzles were kind of new, and some more challenging than others.
It is an adventure game which I usually like but I felt it was somehow juvenile. If I was absolutely out of games, I might buy it when it comes out in the regular edition with a free game club pass, but for now I will pass on this one.
