Forgotten Books: The Enchanted Crown Collector's Edition
Lets just FORGET this horrible book
Based on Demo: 2nd verse same as 1st. Another rehashed story premise with an evil demon wanting to take over the world. And this deserves 5 STARS? I think not.
Not wonderful, fun, enchanting or challenging.
Why do the graphics have the same old, same old, cartoonish look without a hint of realism? Then there are the one dimensional characters without movement or lip synch.
Usual music sound track we've heard over & over again.
HOGS are interactive with a few silhouettes. You can opt for puzzles which I find tedious/boring. Jump map/diary available but I did not use either one. There are also colored pots to acquire & they did not seem to hard to find, at least in the demo.
This is just ANOTHER game lacking in originality. Sorry devs your rabbit has not earned their carrots for this one.

Formulaic game. Too few puzzles. Too much dialogue. Ran through the demo in 25 minutes.

Disappointing, but it was pretty to look at, at least.
Overall, this game had a nice premise, but was not well executed. I didn't think it was worth the CE price.
Graphics: Very nice. Standard ERS style, and it wasn't as cloyingly cute as some of their previous games. I liked it.
Music: Meh. Not bad enough to be irritating, not good enough to really be noticed.
Voiceovers: BAD! Most were simply bland, but the villain's VO was laughably awful. AWFUL. You can turn off the VOs for the dialogs, but you still have to hear them during the cut-scenes. The next time someone gives me grief for always turning off the VOs, I think I'll play them the final scene of this game to let them hear just what I'm gladly missing.
Puzzles: ERS usually brings good puzzles, but they dropped the ball a bit here. There was a good variety of puzzles, but they were rather easy. I managed to do them all on the first try.
Story: Good premise, bad execution, terrible ending that completely ruined it. The story seemed to skip around nonsensically in places, making it hard to follow. The journal was no help.
Length: Very short. It took me about 3-4 hours to complete the main game, and about 1 for the bonus chapter.
Bonuses: It was impossible to *not* get all the collectibles, which kind of defeats the purpose of them, IMHO. No achievements, other than ones given for reaching points in the game.
The bonus chapter, though, was my favorite part of the game. I actually enjoyed it more than the main game. IF the main game had been about cleaning up after the silly rabbit rather than trying to defeat a badly-written generic baddie, I might have given this game more points.
The verdict: Don't bother.

I only lasted through the intro. When I saw the demon in the chair declaring I had to do things because he was my master, I exited. I'm sick to death of these demon-based games. They publish one after the other with each one getting worse. I'm offended by the witchcraft and pentagrams throughout MOST of these games. I want an intelligent game, a well-crafted story and challenging puzzles. Why is that so difficult for the game developers?

The storyline was very poor. While the graphics were good the games were uninspired. This is for small children.
