Mystery Age: The Imperial Staff
- but then came the ending...
I actually really liked this game. I like when there is dialogue, and the puzzles are nice. It is a FROG, and I normally don't care for those, but this was ok.
So all in all I was pleased - but then came the ending... It just seemed smacked together, and at that point the story didn't really make that much sense. But it is just at the very end, so there is much nice gameplay to go through before that point.
Still I have to lower my grade for the experience on that account.

This game was awfully slow! Everything took forever and the game didn't make sense! There was also too much dialogue that I spent forever skipping!

Not for me...
This game is very slow. The storyline is boring. The graphics are good, but otherwise.... There's too much talking, making the game seem longer. The FROS and puzzles are very easy. So I would recommend this game only for a beginner.

I purchased and really liked Mystery Age: The Dark Priests and I looked foward to the next story. This is as beautiful as the other, but I was irritated by the bubbled dialogue. Prefer to have a diary to read at my leisure...

Good time killer
I usually enjoy the adventure games, but sometimes for a nice relaxing break I enjoy the HOS where you look for the pieces that make up the item and the items have to be used to get the next little piece. I agree with the other reviewer, the dialog and constant cut scenes are annoying, but I enjoyed it. I like that you have to play puzzles and find the items. I don't always care if a story makes sense.

Very Pretty and Enjoyable Game
The story line is not terribly sophisticated, and I agree that the ended was less satisfying than I would have liked, but I've played plenty of games with worse endings. This game is by Digital Quarter and what sets them apart is the beauty of the illustrations and locations, little animated touches, and good sound and music. There is a story, and it holds together throughout. The game ran fine even though my PC is getting a little long in the tooth. Since I played this game, I've enjoyed two others by this developer: Mystery Age: The Dark Priests, and Shaolin Mystery: Tale of the Jade Dragon Staff, both of which were also enjoyable. Shaolin Mystery also had a little more mature story to it. Both of the other games are a little better than this one, but I'd still recommend Imperial Staff.

GOOD FOR YOUNG AND OLD ALIKE
Beautifully crafted adventure story. Appropriate for young children. Well organized. FRAGS bright, brilliant colors ? nothing drab anywhere in the scenes. Very polished and finely-tuned gameplay. Actions are somewhat predictable ? fairly linear with limited backtracking. Each chapter has its own set of locations. The cutscenes and dialogue were somewhat dull in comparison to the gorgeous graphics ? the mother sure has a lot of pet names for the daughter, which became very mildly annoying. Good hint sytem. Nice puzzles. Overall, awfully fun and entertaining.

Mystery Age-find the pieces
A good HOG where you had to find the pieces to build objects to help you on journey. Not real hard not real easy.A good game for all,

One of many mystery games
Good game, finding objects and then putting them back in another contest; the dialogues could be considered a little longs in time but I liked them all the same. I liked the game, I was enthralled in the story, beautiful graphic. All in all considered I recommend it:
