Amaranthine Voyage: The Living Mountain Collector's Edition
An okay'ish sort of game
Personally the game didn't grab me although there were aspects of the game that I quite liked. The HOG's were different and quite fun and if you didn't want to do them there was an alternative game you could play.
I confess I'm a bit of a 'hint' person but on this game I used it very rarely but the 'skip' button got used on some (most) of the mini games. My one BIG grief with the game was that wretched bow and arrow that you had to fire. I'd get the target lined up dead centre and fire and a caption would appear on the screen and I'd have to try again and again and again...... Almost started to pull my hair out in frustration as you couldn't skip it.
All in all the game passed some time when I had nothing much else to do.

Based on demo
I just felt that playing was a bit boring. Nothing really new, puzzles were easy as were HO scenes. It just didn't take much thinking about.
I get a little fed up with all the 'cinematics', whilst I except that there needs to be a story line to much time is wasted on these and would prefer to get on with the game play. Being able to click on dialogue to continue was good.
Graphics were clear.
Can't comment about sound as have it switched off.

Story?? What Story??
I had already played the first game in this series, and quite liked it, so was looking forward to playing this one. I bought the Collector's Edition, because Big Fish were doing a 2 for 1 sale, and so got it half price, which, as it turned out, I'm glad about. The graphics were beautiful, crystal clear and colorful. I never have the music playing, as I find it distracting and annoying, so can't say anything about that. The various Hidden Object games were good, with many objects interactive. I don't like puzzles, but I managed to muddle my way through some of them, but admit that most of them fell to the Skip button. But it was the so called story, which lets this game down. Maybe its because I'm new to these types of games, but after the first hour, in my opinion, there just wasn't a story, it had been covered in the demo, and after that it was simply playing the various games to get to the end. Because I had the Collector's Edition, I also got the Bonus Game, which again had little to recommend it, just play the various games until it finished. I really wanted to like this game, because I had enjoyed the first one, but this, for me, was a big let down.

Too "Cinderella" for me
This game has great graphics, but the whole dressing up for a wedding, and using super simple hidden objects to do so, just made the game childish. The puzzles were too easy. A shame I wasted credits on this.

Annoying Game for Females
I wish developers would make games that both men and women can play. This is for females only.

One of the worst ever
I'm playing this game but I'm afraid I won't be strong enough to complete it: every single fragment of the plot brings a bit lower the level of the game. During these years I've bought many unpleasent games but this is maybe the most boring.
I think that BFG should specify in the description of the game if we're talking about a split story or not.
I've loved the first Amaranthine and I was hoping in something similar with the sequel: I was dramatically wrong.

Dull, Boring, Unimpressed
There is absolutely nothing special about this game. This is the type of HOG that you play when you are first starting out, because no skill is needed. The whole game is basically a tutorial for HOG. Also, same o same o. Small village, somebody disappeared and only a random woman can find him. BLAH!!!

The first game was much better than this. Didn't even bother playing the whole demo it was so boring. Lilke pulling teeth to just go through each scene. This obviously is just my opinion and I'm sure there will be folks who like this, but for me it's a total waste of time and when I initially saw it I was looking forward to playing it.
