Mystery Legends: Sleepy Hollow
Fun if HOG is your primary interest
I actually picked this up at a thrift shop, and certainly felt I got my money's worth. There's no story line or "quest" to follow - just HOG, but very challenging. The silhouette function is extremely helpful, as sometimes you're wondering just what an item is supposed to look like. Unlike some games the objects are complex and assume you have a brain to identify the item. I would have liked to see an "unlimited" option after the game is complete, so that you could go back and find all the objects, instead of having to replay the game if you want a different HOG selection. (As another reviewer noted, the non-HOG "puzzles" are so simple as to be useless.)

Very atmospheric HOG
It is spooky all rigt, with its almost gray graphics, the screen turning blood red when you overclick, and Christopher Walken's voice (or at least that's what it sounded) threatening you when you dawdle...
You can play it timed, or untimed.
Although when you revisit a scene, you immediately remember where the objects were.
Still, a good way to pass the time

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.
