Mystery of the Ancients: Three Guardians
Everthing you want in a HO/Adventure game
This was the best game I have played in a while. I played on the hardcore level which is what I play on almost all games. I like the challenge and I am in not hurry to finish them so the games last a long time. There are also casual and expert modes, and you change them mid-game.
The HOS are really fun. Very clear graphics, and integrated puzzles with the HOS.
Not too many other puzzles which is okay with me.
Overall great graphics
You can replay the videos throughout the game
Game kept my interest the entire time.
The only thing that I didn't like was the dot-to-dot sequences', but that wasn't enough to take off stars.
I bought the standard game so there were not collectables, etc. Definitely worth the standard game price.

The story line wasn't particularly unique, but the execution was very good with outstanding graphics and good music. There was quite a lot to do and a good variety of things from HOS to puzzles. Very few of the puzzles aggravated me, so puzzle fans might find them on the easy side, but non-puzzle fans will appreciate them. Overall, I liked this one and had a hard time walking away to do other things.

Really good game
I really liked this game. It was nice and long. The story line was excellent. The puzzles are a bit on the easy side but I liked the variety. There were some HOS, but not as many as some games, so if you play just for HOS you might not like this game. The graphics are good. There is a map, for those who don't like "walking all over the place". This is the second in the Mystery of the Ancients that I've played. I enjoyed them both.

Amazed and smiling through the whole game
This game is the best HO I have played. The colors and graphics were gorgeous, and the interactions on the screens where lots of fun to watch. I enjoyed the great variety of mini puzzles. I really like the map feature so I don't have to go from scene back to scene to get where I want to go. My only wish is the the connect the dots were not numbered so I would have had to figure out the picture on my own. Loved, loved, loved this game!

a nice long game that has great graphics
played casual, low sound. customizable features. diary and interactive map. used map a good bit.....it was needed. you are looking for the dark queen who put on the crown and then the evil energy in the crown took her over. she was encased in a crystal to forestall any more evil and watched over by the three guardians, but the dark king wanted her released so he captured people and used their energy to try to break the crystal and set the dark queen free. sequel......if the smoking crown at the end means anything, i would say definitely. took me about 5 and 1/2 hrs using a lot of hints and skipping around with the map.

a light dark story
was a release on my old eyes with this game. loved the bright colors even with the spooky story was getting a bit of eye road rash from all the very dark cool stories thank you for that. amazing looking birds..sooo feel involved in the story .had a slight glitch when doing one of the hogs. it went out before I finished with it. I got the item I was supposed to get but it just went. .WHOOPS you're done. lol. still in the process of playing this game. .hard to hit exit when it's so awesome. I actually turned UP the volume for this game ,lost a hour of sleep and not because of daylight saving time..a definite more than 5 on this one.

I Think I Grew Up with These Folks
This is posted after playing the entire game.
This borders on fun and boring. I say that, because parts of this was exciting, fun, and then there were times I just quit playing because I was bored out of my skull. I had played another in this series and found it really good, but this one lacked some of that excitement.
The graphics and sound were excellent. I can't say too much about the music, because I always turn the music down on my games, but the effects and the voice overs were very good. Just once I would like to go to a studio and see how all this is done.
The challenges ranged from pulling your hair out to recalling what you did learning numbers in grade school. I do admit I skipped several, not because they were too hard, but that I had seen them so many times in previous games. Several of the mini games were repeats. The hidden objects were of two kinds. One the regular find the object and the other find one piece to get to the next. That to me was the most difficult of all. There is a map which you will need to find your way around to the next part of the game. I suppose you could go without, but you would be playing this game forever and a day doing so. The regular hidden object scenes were very simple with clear and clean objects.
So far as the story, it was run of the mill. Big Fish does a great job explaining it so read the description. There was a beginning a middle and an ending with just a hint of another game to follow.
I am not sorry I bought this game, but there seemed to be a weak link between the story and what was going on. There were times it just made no sense whatsoever. I must have missed something in the beginning that explain part of game, because I caught myself wondering, why in the world did they do this or that. That's one reason I don't put a lot of faith in the demo versions.
I hope you enjoy this game. I did, kind of, sort of.

What a nice game.
I finished the SE of this game in casual mode. This is a very easy game suitable for everyone. It's a love story and good versus evil.
The graphics and sound are exceptional. I love pretty and this had lots of color.
There aren't too many HOS and they are very easy -- every thing is in plain sight except for a few which require an extra step. The puzzles are easy too and I don't remember any new ones. There is one puzzle that's repeated each time a new piece of the amulet is found which was super easy and became monotonous.
The hint button works outside the HOS, It either points to the object or gives a directional arrow.
There is also a map that shows areas which can either have an object to collect or to administer. It also transport you there. Loved the map.
Every once in a while I love play an easy game where you can always find your way. Play the demo and read a few reviews.
