Dream Chronicles 2: The Eternal Maze
This game is very frustrating. It's hard to find the missing pieces of things and there are no hints. I like a challenge, but this is ridiculous. I was clicking all over the scene and occasionally happened to pick up an item that I didn't even see was there. I gave up after spending half an hour on one scene because I just couldn't find the pieces of the "machine". This game would be fantastic if it had a hint function or a blog walk-through. As it is, it is a complete waste of time.

NOT for Beginners!
at this point, i think i am somewhere between a beginner and intermediate. (i also think that some people who mark themselves as intermediates are either experts or somewhere in-between.) when i played the 60 min trial, i thought i had found just the right game for my level. i even thought i might have to upgrade myself to intermediate level.
if you are one that gets lost and does not know where to go next or needs to know where to back up to, to get back on track or needs a help button, this is not the game for you yet.
many reviews (yes, i read them after...dumb girl) said the game was too short. after a day and a half of it, i disagree with them! short to me would be half a day or an evening.
the graphics are beautiful but some of the hidden objects are too, way too tiny. during the game were there is text you need to read, expect to squint as that is also small.
i did not like the music or that area would have gotten 5 stars.
when you are on a roll, this is great fun! when you are stuck and need to start over or spend so much time trying to figure out what you are required to do, it can be extremely frustrating!
'level of challenge' ...i want to give it 1 start of none, to indicate that it is TOO hard. maybe here we need a 6th star to indicate it is way overt my skill level.
i wish games came with a CBIA code that would indicate the level of challenge the game is geared to....children, beginners, intermediates, experts.
i do not hate or dislike this game and i think it is better than ok but...
would i recommend this game...yes and no. yes, because if it had a walk through or the experience lever, it would really fun and challenging... no, if inexperienced/beginner level
lesson learned: until i am further alone in my learning curve, NO MORE GAMES WITHOUT WALKTHROUGH!!!

I love Dream Chronicles... especially the first 3. The second game in the series is more challenging than the first. It takes patience, a strong memory and okay, I'll admit it... maybe a glance or two at the walkthrough. Because there are certain items which are extremely well hidden. Gorgeous graphics, beautiful music and amazing storyline!

Not as good as first one, but ok.
I liked, not LOVED, this game. It was definitely more challenging than many. The HOs were often difficult to find, but I kinda' liked that for a change since soooo many are too easy. I did have to look at the walkthru a couple times just to get a hint as to where a REALLY hidden object was! I liked collecting the dream jewels and solving the secret riddle that gave you a clue you might be able to use in this quest or later in the game. The puzzles weren't too hard and mostly entailed finding all the objects to solve them. There is NO skip or hint button so, if you're stuck, it's definitely a trip to the walkthru! Rather short game and abrupt ending which always leaves me cold. But as a whole, I liked the game and recommend it.

The graphics are beautifully enchanting! I wish I could build a fantasy world like this, for real. Charming storyline. The fact that the game has no hints, except what you glean from the charms you collect along the way, adds to the adventure. I found it a very fun, intuitive and captivating use of my time! I would highly recommend this to anyone who does not have to have the answers at once, but instead, enjoys figuring things out the hard way! Love it!!! Am looking forward to the rest of the series.

I have totally enjoyed the dream chronicals except this one, the eternal maize. There is no reference to overcome the maize of tunnels. This has proved over the last two years to be one that I would have rather not bought.

Strange but interesting game
This game is quite unique. The graphics are good but the objects you need to find are either tiny or hidden behind other objects. The puzzles are quite easy, except for the last maze... This game is all about patience, good eyes, no stress and enjoying the strange atmosphere. It took me about 2 1/2 hours.
