Awakening: The Sunhook Spire Collector's Edition
Horrible play time
The games are absolutely irritating! I hated playing this which is sad cause I like the series. The princess could be holding a lighter but would still need to find something else to make a fire. The story is too jumbled and there are way to many mini games involved in simple tasks.Yugh!

I wish these games had an age range on them. This game was too much of a disney type fairy tale. The visual design was great, but the storyline seemed more for 12-13 year old age group. Even the HOG were weak. It may have a lot of ratings because it's new, but ....or possibly there are a lot of "tweens" that love it. I would even prefer any Nancy Drew story over this kind of youthful fantasy.

What A Trainwreck
I was so excited to see another Awakening game. I was a little put off about the mixed reviews but after thinking a while I went ahead and bought it. BIG mistake! I really hated this game. The graphics and sounds were wonderful but everything else was terrible. The mini games were so convoluted that I skipped almost every one of them, it was ridiculous. The HOS were the kind that you had to complete a task to find some of the items. Sometimes you had to do things that were not even related leaving you to scratch your head and wonder why. Then when I received some items their use was so vague that I was mystified on what to do with it. Oh and the little owl...what a joke. When you needed a hint from him he either told you exactly what to do or he would just highlight an area and I would still have to look at the strategy guide. It was miserable but I was determined to finish until.....I got to one scene that I had to make a potion. I sat the knife on the cutting board before I put the mushrooms down and it cut one anyway. Then it would not let me put the mushrooms down. I finished the recipe thinking that the mushrooms were to be used later. When I tried to put the potion in the stew it would not let me. I looked at the guide and sure enough all of the mushrooms had to be cut up and put in but now I could not get back to the cutting board since I had already made the potion. GLITCH. I would not recommend this game to anyone!!

I bought the CE on a sale weekend and I think I wasted my money which is a shame. I thought since I enjoyed the other Awakening games that this one would be much like the rest so for the first time I bought without the trial. I can't even finsh the story is so boring, too many unrelated objects to gather and use. Normally even if I don't enjoy the games, the storyline brings me in. The games are hit or miss with most not being challenging and others just not making any sense at all. I feel as though I wondered around doing things without a purpose.
VERY DISAPPOINTING Mini games were easy and uninteresting.
Maybe it gets better after Chapter 3, but I won't be finding out. This is the first BF game I haven't finished.

Soap Opera and a Drama Queen Sophia
The money-grubbing aspect of this series is turning my stomach. Very few HO scenes, too many boooooooooring minigames and lousy, I mean lousy instructions on the minigames. And I'm pretty sure I've seen quite a few of these screens before on your previous installments in this series.
As in the last game of this series, Skyward Castle, I'm glad I didn't pay cash but I sure did waste two credits. Shoulda stopped after the disappointment of Skyward Castle. But I am done now. I no longer care if there is a happy ending; would prefer Sophia to freefall off a dragon.
