Myths of the World: Stolen Spring Collector's Edition
Not much to this one. It was visually quite good and it had some good achievements that I liked but other than that .. there's not much to it. The game is quite simple.. you complete the tasks in each area and then move to the next.. no backtracking, no need to rack your brain. Everything is right there and pretty easy. Mini games are very simple! A cute little animal helper that you can dress up.. kind of ERS-ish. The storyline was pretty standard.. an ice queen keeping the world frozen.. you are a child of spring and must overthrow her. sigh. It was complete with the Noooooo ending. I did like the collectible coins but overall this game was pretty standard and quite easy. haven't played the extra chapter yet.. not sure if I will. Not a bad game but nothing original and nothing to write home about. meh Not up to par with the first one.

i was told my review was too short, that is exactly what i thought of the game, too short, not challenging enough

It was ok, but not too much more
I was really looking forward to this game after the previous release, but this one did not live up to the prior one. The story started outwell, but it got quite muddled and it was very linear and a bit simplistic in the end. Even the bonus chapter did not do much to redeem the game, I question whether it was worth the purchase price for the CE. Maybe the regular edition would be a better value.

Truly an average game
The game is so average that it actually hurts, from visual and audio to the story side. Moreover, there were already several other games focusing around defeating the goddess of winter in various religions. A completely unused potential of slavic mythology. Moreover, the bonus content of the collector's edition is extremely poor and not related to the game content at all. After playing the demo I expected far more from this game, especially that the Myths of the World series is quite interesting.

Second in the myth series.....NOT what I expected!
What happened? This game is not what I expected for the next chapter in the Myth series. The Chinese Healer was amazing, and I was really looking forward to the next adventure very disappointed. I bought it, and I wished that I had NOT!!!!!!! I hope the next myth is up to par.....to start out with a bang like the first!!!!

Too easy and too linear
Even though this game is nicely drawn and also have some of the bling - like collecting Pet-coins, cute animals etc - it is just too easy and the linearity is killing any exitement that could have been.
The story is not that new either; The World is frozen over, and as you are the child of spring you are the only one who can save the World.
As you move on the evil snow-queen keeps popping up and freeze something, but as you also have a "defreezer" you just remove the ice in a jiffy.
The HOS are interactive as we know them, and some are silluettes -and they are all very easy. The puzzles are also overly easy, but if you like getting achievements for almost everything, you might just like that.
Early in the game you get a pet that can transform things
- fx : you find a fish and then give it to the pet who eats it and gives you the fishbones you need. Really ??
Seems like a waste of time, as one could just have found the fishbones right away.(would even have been more believable as there was no reason to be able to find a live fish where it was found)
It seems as if the developers have learned that a lot like collectibles and "in-game-helpers", but as they didn't really know what to use them for they have just thrown in some silly tasks here and there. Well, it doesn't work !
When this game comes as a DD I might get it... but most likely I'd rather replay one of my very good games
I'll only recommend this game to beginners or children

There seems to be race on amongst game developers to see who can design a game with the most annoying and most by number of "cute" little critters to help the player. This game wins the prize so far for gag factor at least, and they add in cruelty to animals to make it worse. It was difficult to get past the gagging and get into the game.
It's a shame, too. Other games by this developer have been very good. This one is not good at all. The story is lame and is also poorly told. Game play is very easy. The production is good as usual, but it is wasted.
This game is worse than a total waste of time - it's totally annoying.

This game was too easy in everyway but I think that it could be an OK game for the very beginner. Sorry....I just have to call them as I see them. I played the full hour to be fair. Better luck next time.

Way too easy
When I see winter scenes I get excited. Something about them always seems fun to me. This was the exception! The HOPs were so easy an ape could do them. The puzzles? Ha. This game is too cute and way bad. Sorry, this game was terrible and short. And the bonus chapter was worse!
