Empress of the Deep: The Darkest Secret
Beautiful imaginative graphics!
I loved this game, and am now playing the sequel. The graphics and the imagination shown in making this undersea world are amazing! The story is good, as are the voice overs, and the hidden object scenes are fun, but it was the fabulous scenery that kept me saying WOW!

Awesome Underwater Kingdom Adventure
This game is so amazing!!
It was one of the very first games I ever played here and I absolutely loved it! The voice of the girl was perfect, the storyline was awesome and the challenge is amazing!
I recommend it to anyone.

Empress of the Deep Delivers
What a magical, mystical adventure! I enjoyed the story and moody soundtrack, and I felt the voice acting was quite good as well. The graphics were lovely but I did have trouble identifying the last one or two objects in almost every hidden object puzzle. Sometimes the scenes seemed to be filled with random junk and several items were not drawn clearly. The hint system is generous and refills quickly so this is a minor complaint. On the plus side I had a ball with the other puzzles and traveling about this unusual world. This is not a long game but it will certainly give you a full evening of enjoyment!

Loved it but was rather short
I was playing the 2d part of this game on my Kindle and decided to try the PC version of the 1st game. The game reminded me somewhat of Myst. It had somewhat of a lonesome feel as you wandered thru the various areas - which added to the atmosphere. It wasn't some cutesy game, but had a slight edge. The puzzles were not nearly as difficult as Myst. In fact some had been modified to be easier compared to other versions of the same puzzle I have played in earlier games.
I liked the game play. It was logical and the game even tells you when an area you are in is "clear" meaning you have finished all activities. This way you dont have to revisit locations to determine if you really finished all the puzzles.
I would recommend this game because it had a good feel, the puzzles were fun, even the HO games were OK.
My only complaint would be that it should be longer.

Nice Quick Game
This is a nice quick game which you can play. Its worth the money, if its on sale ($2.99). The puzzles are easy to moderately-hard. Safe for kids too. My 4-year-old watched me while I played and he enjoyed this game a lo!

Good Game, but short!
I liked the story of Empress of the Deep, the story of a woman who has to rescue an undersea kingdom from an evil empress. The voices were well-done, the back-and-forth-ing limited, and the hint system was very helpful. I wasn't particularly a fan of the story freezing while the characters talked, and the graphics seemed less sharp and clear than some of the newer BF games I've enjoyed, but I understand that aspect of the game. The puzzles were challenging, but not overwhelming, and a good mix of types and kinds. I really did think the story was short, though I didn't time myself playing it. It just felt that way. The ending was good! I already have the sequel to the game and look forward to playing it!

Just not up to standards
I decided to try all the empress of the deeps. Not worth it. Too much talking and the hint button is not really all that good for you. The HOS and puzzles are quite easy. Somewhat of an adventure but there is tons of better games out there. Game is slow and boring.

Unique enough to get a recommendation
Really deserves 3.5 stars. The story is good and flows, even if it isn't unique. The HOS scenes are good, interesting,probably the best part of the game and the minigames you've mostly seen before.
I don't like that you have to use a hint to get instructions for a minigame. The game also ran slow for me. It would have been nice to have a map that allowed you to jump from place to place.
It's not at all difficult, and there is only one mode of play.
The graphics make it better than average, but it's pretty short, even for an SE. Nothing scary except for the 100+ yr old lady.
My advice: play it, but buy it on sale.
