Awakening: The Redleaf Forest Collector's Edition
I have many Big Fish games and have never felt the need to write a bad review, but I was so disappointed in this Awakening Redleaf Forest game that I felt I should tell people not to waste their money. I have all the other Awakenings and was so looking forward to this one. It does not measure up in any way in my opinion. The built in strategy guide was totally useless and mostly just pictures with answers. The directions to several of the mini-games weren't written clearly, either. I'm sorry I wasted my game credits on this game. I'll go back to replaying the other Awakenings.

Most Games Annoyingly in Dark Shadows
Tired of dark, dark games with miniscule hidden objects. Won't order any more. By the time I'm done, I have eyestrain and a headache. Surely the game writers can be clever enough to use daylight scenes and graphically hidden objects. I have a few like that. Done with dark. L.

I did not get through the Demo!
I tried. It was very silly. It was as if it was geared to a nine year old child. Even the Strategy Guide was mostly pictures.
It is not a purchase for me. I am glad I was not tempted by the sale this weekend.

Awakening - the last and the least.
I am an older gamer so many may disagree but, this is a child's game. I have all the games in this series. The first two had good story, interesting game play and I do play them over and over.
This one had a lot of inconsistencies, a poor story line and what got me the most was that the big strong centaur stood around while the heroine did all the work. He was the only one that could make the sword. Well, He stood there while the heroine made the sword... and she did all of the game play in her fine lace dress. Go figure.

Blah, boring, and basic
This game, just like every other HOG out there now is simply the same thing but with different locations and characters names. The puzzle games were too simple and boring as was the game play.
I would not recommend this game if you want a challenge and fun.

Being a big fan of the Awakening series, I bought this one without testing it and I'm sorry. I found the game boring, repetitive, too easy and the graphics are dark and the same color screen after screen. I had to force myself to finish it.
I will never again buy a game without testing it first.

Statuesque Wooden Characters!
Honestly, who keeps a locket of their Parents? NOBODY! Silly Storyline presented NO interest. Characters were statuesque and wooden. Lip sync did not match speech. I really did not like Graphics or the dominant brown and yellow colors in this Game. I would NOT waste my time playing this Game even for $2.00!

I was so bored I could not wait until the game was over. I was completely unsatisfied and pretty upset I wasted my money on this one. Oh well I guess sometimes you will get a lemon.

Lets ZAP this BOOM Before it Spreads Anymore!!!!
Based on Demo: # 6 of a DREADFUL cartoon series without any realism whatsoever.
Same old rehashed story of kidnapped relatives & you are now in hot pursuit of the evil doers. There is NOTHING new, exciting, fantastic or even remotely challenging about this game.
No lip sync with wooden characters & okay VO.
Usual UGLY muddy, monochromatic graphics. Lots & lots of red, blue & yellow. I find these types of graphics to be very hard on the eyes.
Music usual dreary, no thought behind it, kind.
HOGS were a pleasant surprise in this otherwise MEDIOCRE game. Lots of interaction & silhouettes which I like.
The cartoonish rendition of the dragon was hideous & off putting. The owl was much better, graphically speaking, & looked liked a cuddly stuffed toy.
Hint system was quick/good & teleported you to the appropriate place.
Definitely NOT a 4/5 Star game in my opinion. I know that I am in the minority as everyone has their own tastes. So try the demo & see what side of the star rating you are on.

Oh my what a terrible game. Where are they coming from. If I had my way no star at all. So glad for the trial period to take a look. It is horrible. It's not even worth the SE price.
