Myths of the World: Spirit Wolf Collector's Edition
Newest "Myths" game, still easy and fun
This is the latest of the "Myths" games and the last I played. The process hasn't changed and the games are all well done.
Illustration is nice and the puzzles and HOs are clear.
None of these games are for deep thinking...and I enjoyed a little respite from that. I admit I looked at the guide a couple of times, but even with that it was more my impatience than the level of difficulty that caused that "cheat".
I don't think I would have purchased the CE except that I was enjoying the simple pleasure of the other two and didn't want to wait. But, the only real help might be the map because it shows where work is needed and can zap you there. Even that is not necessary as the distance between areas of needed work are short,
All in all, a nice group of games!

Good for the long run
This game kept me going for a long time, it is a rather large file game. Good graphics, plenty of challanges. I would really suggest this game to all.The bonus game and the little extras make this even a bit more fun.

Nothing negative can be said! (almost)
I love these Myths of the World games! They are incredibly fun, challenging but not too challenging, and are different than any other HOG out there!
I'm not a huge fan of HOGs but the art and story lines keep bringing me back to them. These Myths of the World games are a great solution to people like me. When an HO scene comes up, you don't have to do them! You have an option of bubble shooter (or match 3 in the other versions). I was having so much fun not being forced to do the HO scenes that I enjoyed the HO scenes more when I did choose to do them.
The sound is beautiful, peaceful, and puts you in the perfect setting for the game's subject matter, just like all of these Myths of the World games.
The art is beautiful and clearly rendered so the artwork never gets in the way of completing a task.
The only negative thing I can say is that the scenes where the amulet has to find the symbols in a darkened room were technically unsound. I don't know if the problem was on my end or if it is in the game, but whenever those scenes came up (3 if I remember correctly), only a rectangular section at the right hand side of the screen was clear. The rest of the screen was jumbled with computer lines. I found that if I escaped the scene and exited to the Main menu, this somewhat fixed the problem but not completely. The strategy guide helped me locate the symbols that were not showing up because of the weird malfunctioning screen.
I am really looking forward to a 4th installment of Myths of the World! I hope they do Greek myths and Ancient Egyptian myths. Druids would be nice, too, and Viking! As a descendant of Eiric the Red, I only ask that if they make one for Norse mythology, they do NOT put horns on the helmets! That is a myth within a myth lol!
Anyway, great game! Try the hour trial but seriously, you won't regret buying this or any of the Myths of the World games. Not even if you splurge on the Collector's Editions. They are well worth it!
PS: Oh! I almost forgot! Do NOT exit this game at the end without reading the credits! This goes for all the Myths of the World games! The creators make funny notations beside each of their job descriptions. Some make you really laugh out loud. You get an achievement for watching through to the end, too. "Thanks" to the design team for that last bit of entertainment that shows you really enjoy your job and have fun bringing us quality games!

love the respect in this one for Native Americans
The art and graphics in this are terrific, the storyline held me through to the end. I really like a game that features a different culture. Didn't realize till I played this one (and I play lots of these games) how little racial diversity there is in this world. I strongly suggest that players sit through the credits at the end. They are hilarious. Thanks for this one. p.s. I'd like to see more games in which ravens aren't used to represent evil.

Another great Myths of the World,,,bravo!!!
This is a beautifully developed and great game next to what has been offered up lately. I beta tested it and gave it 5 stars then. The American Indian setting is great (at least it's not another haunted run down building). Some of you don't like the cutesy games but I enjoy them. I love the artwork and gorgeous scenery. This game is fun to play and you have several choices in playing. I love that it has a transport map. It has an amulet to get rid of glowing signs, binoculars to see far off, collectables, and achievements. 1 thing i did not know til the end of the game is that each HOS has a "gold hand" you have to look for & collect as well..But what's not to like? Some of the new games don't even have full-screen.

Third myth is definetely worth the time
Liked the Healer, Spring so/so, but this time, the wolf is coming to grab your attention! A new mystery myth this time set up in north America, while you try to iron out a dispute centuries old! I definitely enjoy traveling through time and space, and this one takes me to places I've never been. A big thank you for the developer!

The 3rd in the Myths of the World Series is a definite winner. I enjoyed the first one set in China. I did not like the 2nd one, but this one more than makes up for it. Eipix is my favorite game developer. The visuals and graphics, sounds, voice overs, colors, are all done to perfection (except for the bright pink bald eagle beak :) ) The HOS are fairly plentiful. I saw list which were interactive and silhouette. The mini games ranged from easy to medium in difficulty level. You are called out to a Native American cultural center where odd happenings are occurring. You have an amulet which glows when it can be used against animal spirits. You are also given a pair of binoculars to see (duh) things far away. You have a jump map, a journal listing your objectives and including a diary. There are 4 modes of play including custom. Game play is fairly linear. This is not a game for experts. There are sun signs to collect, a bonus chapter, a souvenier room, replayable HOS and mini games, wallpaper, etc. The only gripe I would have is that Eipix may want to start increasing the difficulty level of their games. Besides for that, this game is informative and is quite the visual and auditory fest :)

After one hour of the trial had to buy the full version. I already own the others in the series all excellent but this seems to be more of a challenge than the others.

another good game in the ceries
I have always enjoyed this ceries of games and this edition is no exception. I just did the beta test and was surprised to find out it is coming out so soon. the only issue I have is I don't care about extras and really don't know if I will get the collectors or wait till the regular version comes out. great hint button, great map. not sure collectors is for me but I will get this game eventually.
