Witches' Legacy: Hunter and the Hunted Collector's Edition
I KNEW he couldn't be trusted !!!
This is the 3rd in the Witches' Legacy Series. Very well done. I really enjoyed the first two. This one picks up with a grown-up Lynn and Carrie (who has now adopted Lynn). It does give you a short synopsis at the beginning of the game as to what has gone on in the past, in case you haven't played the other two games. I like the graphics in this one. I don't see the graininess. To me, it's blended, blurred color. There is unobtrusive music in the HOS. You have your choice of 4 modes of play, including custom. I played the demo on the easiest mode. We do have the imp returning to help squeeze into small spots. He also notifies you of current tasks. He actually is not a bad helper. Lynn has met Edward, who she thinks is the best thing since sliced bread. However, he turns out to be a traitor and a member of the order of the witches. Your goal is to convince these people that Lynn uses her magic for good. The HOS are infrequent, but pretty much junk piles. There is some interaction. You can switch to a simple Match game if you'd rather not find hidden objects. The puzzles were familiar, but puzzles always give me problems since I am not a puzzle fan, but I did manage to solve them all. Elizabeth (previously a bad bad witch) returns to you in doll form and wants to help. Hmmmm can she be trusted? The CE includes all the wallpaper, etc. plus morphing objects and puzzle pieces to collect. There is a strategy guide and a bonus chapter. This looks to be a fairly decent length game. I liked it. I have enjoyed all the games in the series so will get this one also. Not sure if I will get the CE though. Depends if BFG has a sale or not. You also have a journal and a jump map. Game play was fairly linear, but again, I played the demo in easy mode. Enjoy

A good sequel
Having played the others in the series and enjoyed them, I bought without playing the demo.
Good continuation of the story, liked the graphics and love the Imp!
My gripe is that towards the end of the game and in to the bonus chapter, the number of HOs increased dramatically....I hate that. Its like the devs have run out of ideas for puzzles. It really spoilt the game overall for me.
That said others will not have the same issue and it is a good game nonetheless.

Having played the demo on the prior games in the series, I found that I really like this one best. The hos were not overly difficult and you have the option to switch to matching game. The mini puzzles were also well done, though some are similar to what we have had in the past, they were a lot of fun. I also liked the fact that there were morphing objects and puzzles pieces that were not overly difficult to find. There are 12 achievements that vary in relationship to the game and the regular no skipping, etc. You can change difficulty in the middle of the game and I have no idea how the strategy guide because to the point I got in the demo, I didn't need to use it. The map is interactive and the helpful imp is a cutie pie. The only real issue I had was during the hos the music that was playing in the background would suddenly stop. It really is a lovely game. The extras were all your normals, but I am interested to find out what the puzzle pieces do at the end of the game.
It continues on from the last two, and if you haven't played them, they bring you up to date with the cutscene at the beginning of the game. Lynn has met a "nice" boy who betrays her to the Witch Hunters who believe anyone who practices magic must be destroyed. It is up to you to rescue her from the fate that they have planned for her. I really enjoyed the game.

another good game in the ceries
other than wanting to wait till the regular version comes out I will definitely by this game. I did not need collectors, don't care about extra's anyway and the hint button and map work great. I don't use sound so can't rate that but this will be a by for me. need to save everyone again!

Based on Demo (new game, no other reviews)
I've played the first in this series and loved it. the second one i must have missed so i played the demo after i demoed this one and loved it.
this game continues the story. i found the mechanics to be flawless, which is a huge plus!!!
the HOS were interactive and can be changed to match three, the mini-games easy.
interactive map which i love!
scenery was beautiful, music ok but i keep it on low.
morphing objects and puzzle pieces to find.
based on the hour of play, everything made sense to me. that, in itself, is what makes a game enjoyable.
difficulty can be customized and changed during play.
this demo ended at a pre-set point in the game. i had 2 minutes left. i play leisurly, enjoying the scenery and story as i go.
there are cut scenes as the game progresses to tell the story but they are quick and can be skipped.
i'll be buying this game with the hope it continues as flawlessly as the demo and the puzzles get a bit harder.

Jump map and hint button were a great help to me during this game. I have days were the extra steps just do not function for me and it is so nice to have a nice map with clear indications and jump ability and hint button that shows what to work on.
This all in all is a fairly good sequel. Graphics were very nice. Love having my strange little helper again.
A hunting I will go a hunting I will go. Uh oh I think I have been fooled. Can hardly wait to see why I was tricked. Is it burn day for witches or something??

good but falrly standard game
Not much of a plot here. Really same as the first two. Someone is kidnapped sigh by a witch and needs us to rescue her. yawn. oh but besides that.. this is a beautiful game with lots of color and nice scenery. There are achievements, collectibles and morphing objects. Also lots of cool puzzles some easier (most) and some harder (near the end). Your companion/helper Imp is back and all in all this was a pretty decent game. I was happy to see a reset button on all of the puzzles, good strategy guide and a jump map. I liked it.. didn't love it. Found it to be a bit on the short side, without a lot of plot but what was there was pretty to look at and fun to play. I enjoyed this one. So four out of five.

It's Not Hogwarts!
This was another decent game in the series. It not Hogwarts, but it's good. Where can I get my very own imp?

The level of challenge was great for all customers depending on the challenge mode. The visual/sound was quite remarkable and themed with the action.
Very enjoyable game.
