Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone
Easy game, but insists on more intrusive & unnecessary hand-holding than I have seen in almost any other game I've played. It should really be possiblle to turn that feature off. It is primarily a HO and matching game at it's most basic. Not for folks who prefer any of the challenge in either puzzle or adventure games.

It was boring to play and nothing really special and the only reason I did play it was I heard the later games in this series were good and wanted to play them in order. The puzzles and HOS were far too easy and the story line was short and boring as well as the graphics of the characters. The voice overs were rather bad but the scenes weren't too bad. This was not something fun at all I finished it in less than an hour, way too short but I will give this series another shot with the next one though I do not recommend this game.

Too many creepy crawlies
This has the makings of a great game but I am put off by the animated spiders and bugs crawling everywhere. Not enjoyable at all.

Rooms are exactly the same as the Citadels of Time game in series.
I played the Citadels of Time first in the series before this one. The rooms and hallways were all exactly the same as that game.
-HOS were easy for the most part
-Puzzles were easy
-boring; concept/storyline was the same/similar as others in series
-the inventory, menu, hint concept was not desirable. I hated it at the top of the screen instead of the bottom.
-Journal was not very helpful
-Did not like the hint concept; you had to find mirrors in order to gain a hint. Use all hints and dont find mirrors, no hints could be used which is the only way you know where to go next (no arrows for directions, but words).
-No map; you had to go back and forth many times between rooms.
-Game really too short.

Impossible to tell what to do - no hints. Second awful game of this series I have tried.

I stopped playing this game half way through. It was difficult and didn't make sense. I kept getting stuck and didn't know what to do next or where to go. Very Frustrating.
