Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow
Oldie, But Goodie!
Let's not judge too harshly, shall we? After all, this game came out before the adventure-style games became all the rage. Personally, this is still one of my Top 3 favorites! In fact, it was the first game I ever bought from BFG and I leave it installed on my computer to play over and over again. I'll admit, the level of challenge is modest, but the graphics are awesome, as are the voiceovers and sound effects. Play this game when your brain needs a break from the harder HOGs.

Classy HO For Fans of Pure HO
Game Style: Strictly HO with a few easy puzzles. I liked the cursor hover silhouettes, and it?s just as well, because the hints are limited and this is a very hard HO. Very. At least I found it so. Being able to finish the chapter with a couple of objects unfound is a good idea.
Artwork: Delightful for its time. Clean and crisp. I liked that there was little distortion in the HO scenes. The voice over is so creepy I jumped every time I heard it. The intro and map are pretty basic and don?t indicate just how good the HO scenes really are to watch.
Story: There is no real story here; this is not an adventure game. But it held together well, and focussing each chapter on a single suspect was a nice twist.
Replay: Only if I was in the mood for strictly HO.
Flaws: The limited hints make the game harder than many would like.
Tips: Skip between locations when you get stuck in one. It may be you don?t need those last two to continue.

The Headless Horseman
This is a good game. It dose has its problems. It has areas that are hard to see. It dose help that the hint tells you what you are looking for. Also you can refill the hint by finding the Jack O Lantern in each aera. If you are looking for a fun easy game with easy mini games & a cool story this is for you.

"Sleepy" Will Keep You Wide Awake!
Super surprised this game didn't get 5 stars from everyone! This game was way ahead of its time when it came out - AND still holds up against today's games! It's one I play over and over! I just get lost in this one - love it every time I play it!
Stunning graphics, fabulous storyline & characters! Game has played flawlessly on 3 separate computers of mine with two different operating systems!
All that - and it's a challenging game too! You'll long for the rechargeable hints we get today! If you missed out on this one in the past - download it now & Happy Gaming!!

Not like the others
This is not anything like the other two Mystery Legends games. I was very disappointed. This is strictly a Hidden Object game. There are no other puzzles or quests. There isn't really much of a story-line either. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is a great story and this game could have been amazing! I'm so glad I didn't buy this one. Very disappointing!

THANK YOU FOR AN AWESOME GAME !!!

I bought this on the back of the other games in this series without previewing it first. Very different from the others - just a range of HOJ scenes linked together with a story at the beginning or end. I didn't finish it.

I love this game. Its a lot of fun and relaxing to play and you don't have to run around everywhere to get to the next level.
I am having trouble with it on Win 7. I'm hopeing this can be worked out. I recommend this game for pre-teens and older and for people who just want to have fun. The graphics and sound effects are amazing.

Game of the Year??? Who says?
I was shopping and saw that Mystery Legends Sleepy Hollow was the Hidden Object Game of the year. So i hurried home and looked up on Big Fish and then downloaded it. To be brief I was sorely disappointed. Hey maybe it's just me but I don't care for HOGs that the objects you are to find are camouflaged so well that even with a hint showing where it is you still can't see it. This game is FULL of those. Needless to say I didn't keep it.

Just HOG, nothing else
A boring game, with no story, no interactivity, no excitement... nothing but HOG.
Even the few mini games are silly, short and unfunny.
