Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow
Not being a novice HO gamer, I still had difficulty finding some of the objects, but it was more a challenge than irritating. Great artwork, very good VO. Interesting mini games which you can find during the HOS. You have limited hints, but by collecting the Jack-o-Lanterns you can accumulate some fore emergency hint use. If you are stuck you still can hover over the clue and it will show the silhouette you need to find. All in all good game.

Thot it was fun
No real great challenge but the dark scenes made the HO's a bit hard to find.
Down side - this was put out X number of years ago and was a "to be continued." Still nada.

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.

Good, could have been better
I played it on untimed mode :)
- The graphics are excellent, very well detailed (always what you expect from 'Play Pond')
- Music is creepy and really fits the story
- Nice narration
- All are HOG scenes, very very few mini games, and most of the items are junks piled up together
- Scenes are either too dark, blurry,or too bright, making it difficult to find the items
- Storyline is not that impressive, you are basically playing the characters who are the victims of the headless horseman. When you are done with the game, it feels unfinished and no sense of accomplishment after finishing the game
- Mini games are repetitive, and there's no skip button
I hope the game could have been made like Penny Dreadfuls: Sweeny Todd or Phantom of the Opera. The 'legend of sleepy hollow' could have made an interesting story, too bad this game cannot go farther than a hidden object game

Good game though the plot is well known
The problem with this sort of game is that everyone already knows the story and has seen the Tim Burton movie. However, this game did a really good job of presenting a fresh and frightening take on the Sleepy Hollow legend. Even though you know how it will end, it is still scary. The atmosphere and graphics are good (not perfectly realistic). Game isn't too long, but just long enough.
I would play the free trial before buying. It is worth the money for the first go, but after that the story can get a little boring (after playing 2 or 3 times).

Old School Game
just played the demo..and only 30 min of that. this reminded me soo much of my very 1st ho game it was one of MFC's 1st as well. ur limited on ur hints, u have to find pumpkins to get more hints. my playing is beyond that. and graphics were average but i suppose at the time this was put together they were good. hard to find and see items especially when ur limited on ur hints. i gave it 3 stars for the effort. unless ur a very die hard ho gamer pass on this one...its very limited.

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.

SO DRAB. CROWDED AND DULL HOS SCENES
I was so disappointed, considering I really wanted to like this game. Sleepy Hollow was one of my favorite stories and Disney filmS as a kid. Game started out great. But what spoils it are the HOS and they greatly outweigh any positives. They are so crowded and indistinct - a lot of black, brown and grey stuff shoved together. Maybe the developers thought that was what would make it challenging. What's wrong with a little color? I have a 27" screen and still couldn't make out the detail. If the hints recharged, I would buy it, but not when they are so limited.
