Nevertales: The Beauty Within
Have been looking for a game with a bit of a twist and this is definitely it. The mini games and puzzles are not run of the mill and definitely not boring. The HO's also have that extra bit of pizzaz. Story line is believable (mostly) and can follow the whole story through. Thoroughly recommend for a beginner or experienced player.

Wow. One of the best I've ever played
I was continually impressed with the craftsmanship and story of this game. I'm so glad I bought it. Will definitely play it again.
This is a storybook-style game. Not gory or creepy. Though the mini-games weren't too hard, they were different than the usual HO zones or puzzles.

Great Hidden Object Game
What set this game apart is the extra steps to find the objects and that finding the objects actually had a purpose (i.e. moving them aside to find a piece of what you need.) I found it more motivating than just finding a list of random things for no apparent reason.

My favorite game!
I have many big fish games but this is by far my favorite. The storyline and variety of puzzles make it so fun to play. I've played it many times and still come back for more. It should have gotten game of the year.

Ever So Much Fun
Excellent fun. The story unfolds through a maze of portals and, like any good tale, saves the best revelation for the end. These were the best developed games I have ever encountered. Several hidden object games had multiple levels adding to the enjoyment.

Best Game of 2013
Probably the best game I have ever experienced. Something new and exciting every step of the way. A real show stopper--so much variety. Excellent! Kudos to the makers.

A "must play" game!
This game has it all: great graphics, interesting characters, a variety of puzzles and games along the way. I loved the way the creators mixed up the way the mini-games were structured and provided some nice surprises in the gameplay. I can hardly wait to see what other games they've created!

There's not a whole lot I can add to what other reviewers have said. It is a masterpiece. A very LONG masterpiece, with incredible attention to detail and a lot of very clever and different twists and turns. I don't give out many 5 star ratings these days, since there are so many very good games out there, and I think a game should be truly exceptional to warrant the highest rating. There are games that I personally liked more than this one, particularly the Weird Park games because they had that extra WOW factor and everything was logical and sensible. It spoils my enjoyment of a game when objects or tasks are thrown in that don't make sense in the context of the game.
So, while this game did not have the excitement and suspense factors that I like, I have to give it a 5 because it had so much in it and it was so well planned. It made you think, and it pretty much forced you to look over the gorgeous scenes very carefully. I always take my time when playing a game, and like to stop and admire the artwork, but even so, I missed a ton of roses and morphing objects.
I absolutely recommend this game, and would advise everyone to look at the Extras before you get too far into the game. That will give you a little heads up on what you need to look for and (if you're seriously into achievements) achieve.

Best hidden object game I've played!
I've never reviewed a game before, but felt like I had to after playing this game. I've played close to 100 hidden object games and this is the best one, by far. You won't be disappointed.

It's fun, interesting to look at, with nice plot and cool storyline... The adventuring is cool, unlike what I've seen in other games. I enjoyed the modern twist to the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast...
The scenery is gorgeous, the music is beautiful, the characters are intriguing... I really enjoyed the overall story and the ending/conclusion. Gameplay was fun and kept me interested. (I only ever stopped to rest my eyes.)
