Nora Roberts Vision in White
Definitely Girlie But That's Okay By Me!
I love the graphics, the music is especially lovely and relaxing. I don't enjoy reading romance novels - annoyingly unrealistic - but I do enjoy this game. I keep coming back and playing it occasionally and am always struck by how beautiful it is. The white "VOWS" are really hard to find. All in all, very glad that I bought this game.

Love the Bride series by Nora Roberts
PLUS SIDE = I have been a long time fan of Nora Roberts and have all the books in the Bride series. This game is based on the first book. I really enjoyed seeing the four lead characters (those girls are all great) and the lovely house (what a beautiful place to have a wedding), the visuals brought to life the descriptions in her book. I have replayed this game at least half a dozen times, the graphics are so pretty (particularly the outdoors scenes) that it makes me happy inside. You can also try to collect letters (VOWS) in each Hidden Object scene.
MINUS SIDE = Some items are small and so hard to find, and finding white items against the white snow is very difficult

Pretty, Serene, Romantic!
This game, by a romance novelist, supposedly follows 1 of her novels in a series about brides. Having never read her novels nor being a fan of romance fiction, I was skeptical about this game--but shouldn't have worried. It was BEAUTIFUL, with lovely artwork and graphics--even winter scenes were beautiful & made you want to walk into them! There were plenty of HO scenes, with objects easy to moderate to find. The story line revolved around 3 women who banded together to make a wedding business--everything from planning to photos to catering and the place. The mini games were clever: match the cake (icing colors and decorations) to what the client ordered to cropping photos from the wedding.
Easy on the eye, nice story, sweet ending, well thought out and done. Nice HO scenes, plenty of play time. Well spent time and money for some gentle, romantic time for YOU! Good for Beginners & Intermediates; not much of a challenge but mostly pure HO game with several mini games. No adventure or strategy involved, no frustration or figuring out where to go or what to do next.

Good game for romantics
This game was a typical wedding / romance type of game and although it really wasn't my cup of tea, it was enjoyable. The graphics were excellent, clear and defined and the hidden objects were fair to some quite challenging. The puzzles were reasonable except for cake decorating and flower arranging. The dialogue, although not long and drawn out tended to be a bit on the mushy side. The game itself is a good game for girls who like weddings and romantic stuff. Even though I liked it, it didn't really suit me.

Story and Hidden Object Scenes Not Really Connected
But, it was still a fun game. If you like the Dream Day games, this is for you.

When I purchased this game, I don't know anything about Nora Roberts nor read any of her novels. Romance novels are really not my thing. I purchased this game simply because I love I-play and I love their games: Agatha Christie and James Patterson series. I know their HOG scenes are super difficult to find, but that's because they make the graphic so realistic. I don't mind finding the items but sometimes finding color in same color like white item in a snow is very challenging and sometimes difficult in the eyes. For mini games lover, this game maybe not for you, too many repetition but luckily we can just skip it without waiting. I don't see any other Nora Roberts game in BFG except this one, but if there is, I will surely buy it if it's from the same developer.

The book is better than the game
This game is based on the first book of Nora Roberts' The Bride Quartet series. All good books. And the game does a surprisingly good job of picking out major parts of the storyline, since I recognized it. Graphics are good, as are the voiceovers, and there is an extensive selection of hidden object scenes. But the hidden objects can be really tiny, really hard to find or identify, and can be tone-on-tone colors like white objects on snow. My other problem is that you only get 5 hints per chapter, and there are several HO scenes in each chapter. So once you use up your hints you are stuck...unless you happen to find the letters V-O-W-S in each scene, for which you will earn 1 hint. But trying to find all four letters can also be difficult. I'm a fan of Nora Roberts, and of the book this game is based upon, but the game just had more frustrations than satisfactions in playing. In this instance, a book in the hand is far better than the mouse.

The scenery in this game is stunning - beautiful graphics, however, very hard to see the hidden objects - I rarely use hints and I found myself having to use at least one hint each scene. The music was very nice. I didn't care for the mini games of decorating the cake, arranging flowers - that was pretty lame. I didn't buy the game because I don't think I would play it more than the one time but it was a nice game.

Beautiful graphics but easy game
The scenery and graphics in this game were beautiful. However, the game soon became boring. I was expecting either more of a plot or a more difficult game. I would recommend it only for die hard Nora Roberts fans.

Not my cup of tea, I suppose
This game was ok, but I wouldn't seek out anymore just like it. In all honesty, I can't quite put my finger on why it didn't dazzle me, but "Otherworlds - Spring of Shadows" did.
I guess I didn't take to the main character's personality is all. The game was a good time passer, I suppose. For the right person, this game might be awesome.
