Riddles of Fate: Wild Hunt Collector's Edition
A disappointment. I was expecting more from the game. The trial (and the first part of the game) was quite interesting. The theme is intriguing. This game has so much potential. Yet as the game goes on, the story line becomes more and more cliche and the logic is forced. Half of the time I have to use hint, not because of the challenge, but because the clue is so bad I have no idea what to do with items in my inventory. Characters and events happens out of nowhere, almost like they were there for the sake of being there. AND, most frustrating of all: some times the hints (and the exclamations) is WRONG. Even strategy guide is NOT reliable.

Riddles of fate
After I played the demo, I bought the game. After you get past the first hour, the game gets much harder and the frustration sets in. When you click on 12 different items and nothing happens except you have to keep looking and you have to go back so far at different points of the game, it is no longer fun, it is arrgghh! I thought because this was an "Elephant" game, it was going to be good. It is good and HARD. I bought the CE version. The bonus was good, about an extra hour. My wife who is much better than I am at these games was also frustrated with the game. Last note, the map is terrible. It too is useless and confusing.

I kept wondering if I was stupid or tired... I forced myself to finish the main chapter of the game and won't play the bonus. So bored that I was. HOS predictable, mini games not challenging and made impossible to go back step by step, which makes it all annoying to do and redo. Storyline incoherent. No punch, no rhythm, wouldn't take off. Sorry guys, I was used to better than this one.

Wanted to like it
It sounded like a good game. BUT
1. The game curser kept sticking and was not easy to use.
2. The printing of the guide was to small to read with ease.
OH well, there are other games out there.

riddles of fate - what on earth??
I only tried a few minutes and already I was disenchanted - had to go searching for clues and the cursor was erratic

Knew I was going to HATE it & I was RIGHT!!!
Based on demo only: Same old ghost, spirits, dragon genre. Nothing new. Have the devs no imagination??? Same old graphics, cluttered junk pile HOS & VO's. Got past the opening scene to the city square when the game deteriorated to a wonky, uncontrollable cursor which included using the guide. I was not able to use the bucket of water in the inventory because as soon as it came near the fire it went back into the inventory instead of dousing the flames. At that point I got out of the game. The Elephant should lower his trunk in shame for the AWFUL clunker that has been passed off as a game. A definite NO BUY. Don't even waste your time on the demo!!
