I Am in Love With This Game It got my attention right from the sign in page. The flyover movie was so beautiful that I just sat and watched it for a bit. Once in, the game didn't disappoint. The graphics are really beautiful with colors that are perfect for the fantasy setting. There is a lot of detail and plenty to look at. In addition, the music was soft and unobtrusive. There were a few mini games in the demo, but I found them a bit on the easy side. I think what I enjoyed most was just the warm fuzzy feeling from playing in such a pretty environment without being on edge waiting for the next creepy thing to jump out at me. August 8, 2013
Oh! Oh! Oh! What an adventure! Based on demo... I am so gobsmacked by this game I hope I am coherent! I almost fell out of my chair at the opening cutscene! So beautiful I had to watch it two more times. And the music! It is EXACTLY the kind of music I like to listen to anyway, sort of new age, and I would buy the game for the music alone! The game is totally immersive, engaging, and I spent so much time just LOOKING at the gorgeous environments. A million kudos to the extremely talented artists! Some of us have wished for a real fantasy game, and we've had TWO in the space of a week! The wonder of it all, LOL. It's not a very difficult game, as long as you look everywhere and stay observant. If you play in Expert, you will need to take notes and do your own map, probably - or else get turned around. HOS are not abundant, and are well blended into the game. NO junkpiles here! The little critters you have to find look kind of like gremlins, and sound like the goo balls from World of Goo! There are animals galore, and I've rescued one, but so far no having to dress any of them up. (Thankfully.) Others have pretty much given the particulars of the play, but I played on Expert mode, and there are NO hints (except black bar) and the map is locked. I had such a time in one of the frog scenes, I tried to go to change it so I could find the last piece - but I don't think you can! So... boldly I go on. At least there isn't a click penalty, and I finally found the missing item. I really didn't get all that far in the demo, I don't think. Spent so much time just admiring the art and the creatures. I like how someone described the dangerous ones as still beautiful. This may well be one of the most beautiful virtual worlds ever created, and it is calling to me... Must resist... Surely there will be a sale soon... ;o) August 9, 2013
Awesome Game I am not sure what some of the other reviewers are looking for in a game, but as for me I think this take is absolutely awesome. The graphics are outstanding, the animal characters look so real. When the introduction came on I felt like I was riding in real life. When i showed this to my grandson (19yr) he told me many of his friends are testing their graphic cards on this game because it is so awesome. I am not sure what some of the gamers are looking for in a game if they do not like this game, but I hope they find it in some of the other BFG. If BFG allowed 100 stars I would rate it with the whole 100 stars I loved this game that much. It is a peaceful and very fun game. I love the story line. Please, please BF more of these types of games. And Thank You for this one. I cannot say enough about it. August 13, 2013
Great game, but not challenging at all. Let me say I loved this game. The graphics are amazing. The music for once actually wasn't that annoying and I usually wind up muting the sound. The story line while not all that original was told with new interesting characters that made it seem like new. It's a very cute game that's was very engaging, but if I have a complaint at all is that it's a bit too short and there was no challenge. I finished the game in less than four hours including the bonus chapter though I did not find all the little fuzzy creatures you're supposed to find. But with that said I bought the CE and I don't regret that decision and I'm really hoping that there will be a sequel I love the world it's set in and the characters you meet. August 12, 2013
Cute without being too sappy Review based on the completed game and bonus chapter, played in Normal mode. I quite enjoyed Neverwood -- it's a fun little adventure game that's sweet with just enough darkness to keep your teeth from hurting. Yes, there are cute critters scattered throughout the game, but they're not so prevalent that you're constantly tripping over them. More importantly, they never attempt to talk to you. There aren't a ton of hidden object scenes in this game, and the ones there are, are generally fractured objects with silhouettes of the pieces you're looking for. Puzzles are pretty standard for this type of game, but at least there isn't a lot of repetition of puzzle types within the game. I found neither the puzzles nor the hidden objects overly difficult. I felt like the travel required back and forth between game locations is much more sane and less gratuitous than it is a lot of other adventure games, which I really appreciate. The game map is clickable, but it does require recharging between uses. Usually the only time this was an issue for me was when I missed picking up something in a location the first time I was there and had to go back to get it. How and where you use the objects you pick up along the way makes much more sense in Neverwood than in a lot of other adventure games I've played, which again I appreciate. As I got towards the end of the game, I did have a few "why on Earth would I use that for this purpose?" moments, but I noticed them precisely because I hadn't been thinking that throughout earlier gameplay. There were no achievements in the game, you just collect these little critters scattered around the scenes to unlock encyclopedia pages. I generally don't care about achievements, and I didn't feel like the encyclopedia really added much to the game. The bonus chapter felt pretty short to me. It is a separate but related plot to the main game -- nice to have, but certainly not required to have a sense of completion to the main game. In general, I found Neverwood to be a fun game. I liked the storyline, gameplay was generally logical, and the puzzles weren't overly difficult. It's not going to be a game for everyone -- if you like your games dark and/or challenging, you'll probably find this one a lightweight. I don't regret buying the CE, but I don't think the extras would be worth the higher price for most people. (I think the developers put together a good enough game that I don't begrudge them the CE price. I'd consider it a really good value for the SE price.) I'd absolutely recommend the SE to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing game for a lazy afternoon. For the CE, I think you have to be someone who really likes somewhat fairy tale-esque game plots without looking for a lot of challenge in your game play. March 22, 2014
Delightful-Simple-Peaceful I have just finished the main game and am in the middle of the bonus chapter. IF YOU WANT A CHALLENGE...don't get this game! If you enjoy a peaceful, scenic, relaxing experience...this one's for you! The perfect test, when playing the trial, would be to let the opening screen play out completely....don't click "play" until you are well over the waterfall and across the land and back to the river. If you find this relaxing and this game!!! As I said, this is an easy game. No hard puzzles, an interactive map, and a "helper" who is sometimes too helpful. Not much hard thinking, but lots better than an aspirin!! I thought the concepts or view of the unique worlds was interesting and a nice change from all the dark and gloomy I often play. As I've nearly finished I find myself wishing the game was lots longer....I like the mood. It is full of adorable characters (especially the Snoop-Sees) that don't necessarily have anything to do with game-play but are, nonetheless, adorable. I hope to find more like this....I will still play dark and gloomy...I will still enjoy the frustration of hard thinking games....but this is quite special! August 27, 2013
Delightful The scenery was so beautiful!!! The little animals were all just the cutest. I really loved finding the Snoop Sees and reading their story. They were entertaining. The story was good, but I did get tired of the voices periodically. You can skip the voices but I wanted to get the story. There was a happy ending which was a nice surprise. Loved this game! August 18, 2013
Encore !!!!!!! This is my new favourite game. I was hoping that it would never finish - it had just the right amount of HOPs and Puzzles for me. ( I did cheat a bit with some of the puzzles, just because I did not want to take the time on them.) The colours and the details of the graphics was just adorable, gorgeous! Every time I stepped into a new scene my eyes just kept on boggling at the beauty ! I noticed that the balance of beauty and horror was very much to my taste - there is far too much horror nowadays. The creatures were so cute, so much so, that I had to keep interacting with them. The little ones (Snoop-Sees) were sometimes hard to find, and I just adored their noises as they were selected. As I said in the title - ENCORE !!!! STANDING OVATION!!!! August 14, 2013
Wow, gorgeous! Warm Fuzzy's, but dont be fooled...(wont give it away..promise) This is tricky, engaging, mesmerising, and you know what? I LOVE the 'Coal'! Some very nice gaming, but its still quite challenging! #even on casual#. This is in fact, sound enough for my 9yo to play too! The story line is familiar, but with a couple of nice touches that I have not come across before. I joined Big Fish 5 years ago, and have had a chance to play many games, heaps of different genres, with this one being right up there in quality, cleverness, and charm. I sound like I'm selling real estate... Hmmm. I will certainly purchase, roll on pay day....xo The Doing stuff: Playing Demo ~ Cool opening art! Reminds me of the Shotover. A fair bit of scripting, which in most places you can skip. #not some of the short video# Cute characters. Warm and friendly.... until you meet the enemy! The tasks are do-able, with just the right amount of complexity. You want to finish the mini puzzles, a nice change for me. #slack aye# Nearwood is a good game, with beautiful artwork and technique, created by a team that had a strong vision of what they wanted to achieve. Vote for Nearwood folks! August 9, 2013
What a Beautiful Fantasy I'm not sure where to begin. The absolutely beautiful scenery in the opening scene surprised me as it just kept going and going. Once I got started, the beautiful art just kept going. It was light with beautiful colors and the music flowed over me and didn't become annoying or even sound like it was in a loop. The magical creatures were super cute and the snoopsees were all over the place to collect to open snoopedia in the extra section which told of their history. The extras were the same as usual without any achievements, but included the sound track, concept art, wallpapers and snoopedia. The strategy guide did not follow along but as I didn't use it except to check what it had to say. I didn't realize that there were three levels until I checked the strategy guide as I couldn't access that at the beginning. It showed only 1 chapter for the demo and the helpful hints at the beginning. It has an interactive map but after teleporting it has to recharge. The hint button can be used in and out of hos without having to be recharged. There is also a bag at the right hand corner that holds information and items of interest. The story begins with shots of your mother collapsing and you and your father and your Aunt Sheryl standing by her hospital bed as she passes away. Your father disappears into a tree with a glowing ball at the top. After Aunt Sheryl dies you are given the information that a secret has been kept from you. At your parents house, you meet Fey the Advisor who becomes your guide as you enter the magical world your parents once belonged to. It is up to you to remove the evil from this world that you father unwittingly unlocked. This is a great game and I can hardly wait to purchase. It is obviously not for everyone, but you really need to try it whether you are advanced or a beginner. August 8, 2013
