Riddles Of Fate: Wild Hunt
Challenging & Intriguing Story
Liked throwbacks - leave it here so I don't give it away!
Included hidden object but you didn't have to re-search the same scene
Well thought out
Fun storyline; not commonly found

War, Famine, Pestilence And of Course, Death!
This is a dark heart pumping, game with evil ghosts demons and minions wreaking havoc on the town of Osville as they search desperately for the human child of fate. Tucked away and nearly forgotten in a dark and damp cell is a prisoner who may be our only chance at survival, his name? Death, and Death is one of the four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! Death fell deeply in love with the woman he was sent to kill and a child was born, and fate must be broken! The graphics are outstanding, crisp, dark, eerie and evil, the music is haunting and I especially liked the music played after you finish a mini game, it's epic! The HOS are interactive list finds and they are a little on the easy side but still entertaining. There are a lot of mini games and so far I have enjoyed every one of them. One game I enjoyed was collecting statues and placing them on the correct pedestal. The pedestals each had a picture of two seprate things such as a lion and an eagle, to make the combination of a griffen. I'm a big fan of the "dark and eerie" genre and this game was very professional and the devs paid attention to detail and there was plenty action in each scene as well as a few keep you on your toes moments, enjoy!

Nice Long Game
I really enjoyed this game. The storyline was unique. There was a nice mix of HOS and puzzles. Game length was great.

Loved this game
I bought this as the multipack and really enjoyed it. I found the puzzles just at the right level for me playing in expert mode. It took me about 4.5 - 5 hours to finish it but I didn't even break for coffee. The story made sense all the way through and was logical unlike some games I have played I did find the end a tad disappointing would have liked more of a ta-da!!! But I really enjoyed it and thought the graphics were great

What a bargain for this game
Won't even go into the story as others have done so. I have spent hours of great fun with the story, games, HOS, etc. Nothing to complain about but it was a bargain for the CE. Have nothing but praise for the developers--bravo.

Differences to the Collector's Edition... :)
Played the Collector?s Edition and tried this Standard Edition to find any differences:
If you don?t like dark themed games with demons, golems, ghosts, witches, skeletons and dragons: Keep your hands off this game!!! There are lots of?
Graphics are excellent, as expected from Elephant Games! Very clear and detailed even in the darker scenes (you have the option to adjust the Gamma). Wellmade characters and creatures.
Facts: 3 difficulties to choose from, 7 chapters, lockable inventory, hint is very useful: telling you what to do next (though a bit too much handholding?), map showing you open tasks/ available action and allowing you to jump, no journal - just a task button, the Book of Dead, which brings dead things back to life and Louis the bat as your helping friend.
Hidden-object-scenes are ALL from list with some very easy interactions? All HOS just played once. Most of the minigames are all wellknown and don?t cause you any headaches, but they are getting harder the longer you play!!
A lot of back and forth due to items, which are not collectable from the beginning and scattered all over the game, like 5 torn diary pages, 10 ghost-seals, 5 scythe pieces, 6 flowers, 3 magical chrystals etc. You require certain artifacts to unlock these items.
Extras ONLY available in the Collector?s Edition: Bonus-chapter with an additional story, strategy guide, 12 achievements to earn and 15 collectibles (statuettes) to find and a ?secret room? with replayable minigames and hidden-object-scenes, wallpapers, concept-art and music...
It took me nearly 5 hours to play the maingame in the 2nd mode (this Standard-Edition). Still an excellent adventure, if you?re a friend of apocalyptic stories!! :)

Can You Meet The Challenge of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Riddles of Fate Wild Hunt begins with a cutscene where we find out that the human Child of Fate has been born and there are evil forces out to hunt her down and kill her. Before ending, the scene moves to a young man in a prison cell who swears that he will protect the child at all costs. Our job is to save the town from the devastation that is being caused by a legion of ghosts who serve the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ? the Wild Hunt. Are they searching for the Child of Fate who is predicted to bring an end to the rule of the Bone King and his apocalyptic Wild Hunt legion?
Even though the game has a bit of a dark theme the graphics are crisp with use of an intense color palette. The game does have voiceovers but once again, there is no lip-syncing. It continues to amaze me that a developer who brings us quality games does not see fit to add lip movements to their characters. Aside from that complaint the sound package for the game is very good. The musical score fits well with the creepy and often scary theme the game.
You do not have a journal but there is a task button that will let you know what you need to do and the interactive transporter map also tells you where you have an area of interest or a task to complete.
The HOS are the standard list type with some objects requiring an additional step. The puzzles are fairly standard with this developer and there is nothing new. That being said, the puzzles are still fun with some more difficult than others but they all add to the enjoyment of the game.
Over all this is a very enjoyable game of fantasy and ancient legends replete with ghosts, witches, and mythical beasts ? all the ingredients of a wonderful game. Since I know that any game from the Elephant team is always excellent and sure to provide hours of entertainment the CE version was an instant purchase ? no need to wait on this one. As always, I recommend that you try the demo to see if you agree that this game is one well worth adding to your game library.

Enjoyable game but may not be for everyone
Overall well done game, good effects and clear graphics. Voice overs were real, but would have preferred actual lip movement with the characters. I am not a big fan of apocalyptic stories but this one had some excitement and followed a good storyline. HO scenes fairly easy but nice challenge to some of the mini games. A little disappointed in the presentation of the prisoner, he appeared rather cartoon-like, which my have been deliberate, but in my opinion took away from his effectiveness as a character. I ran both trials and felt there was enough in the SE to win me over, but for CE fans by all means they get their monies worth. Good game, kudos to the developers once again!

Good Multi-Faceted Game
There is much going on with the story in this game. I love dark, scary themes, so this grabbed me. HOS were easy, and from a list with some interaction. Mini games were fairly easy also. There is a lot of traipsing back and forth to find objects but that's fine. The only thing I didn't like about this game, was the cursor seemed slow and floaty. It became annoying. I don't have this problem with other games, so not sure if one of the options should be shut off. For now, it's a no buy for me because of that problem.
