More a puzzle than a HOG
The art was nice, but the HOG part was horrible. Unrecognizable, shattered pieces of objects scattered across the same scenes over and over?

Absolutely GORGEOUS but...
I LOVED this game!!! I've never been a big fan of FROGs but this completely changed my mind. There were certainly a lot of them but unlike HOGs you could whip right through them and when I came upon "one more", my stomach didn't sink with "not ANOTHER one!!!" Lots of mini games and puzzles and almost all of them had more than one step which was so cool and quite a surprise. Just as I'm thinking, "Dang this is so easy" there'd be a 2nd and sometimes 3rd step. Wow!!! And they were all certainly do-able but definitely required a, "Hmmm, let's see." Absolutely loved that it made me think! Gorgeous, gorgeous graphics and lovely voice over..of course it's supposed to be taking place in Scotland and Briar Rose has a definite American accent but hey...my one and only complaint, and it's a big one, is that I finished in about 2.5 hours!!! And I am not a fast player! The story definitely could have been fleshed out more. It's gorgeous, it's fun, it sucks you right in, but it's ridiculously short. So I DEFINITELY recommend it, but don't pay full price.

I LOVE THIS GAME!
Great HOs, good story line, nice music, beautiful graphics. I like the fact that there were so many "rooms" to explore. Really nice job.

A Near Perfect Game
This game is so uniqe. I just loved it. Another success for Blue Tea Games!
Brilliant graphics. These were very detailed and really suited the game.
The Story had me absolutely spellbound. A brilliant voice-over and great scenes helped this to be even more great.
The Hidden Object Scenes were unlike anything I had ever seen before. They were really great and provided an exra bit of challenge as they showed you a picture of the object instead of the name. As you found all the objects, they joined together to frm something that would help you on your quest.
The Hint recharge speed was brilliant. I'd only just use it and it would be back again. This really helped me, because the Hidden Objects were placed so cleverly.
While the hint was useful, it couldnot be used outside the HO scenes. A strategy guide should be used while playing this game.
The puzzles were extremely frustrating. They were really hard and coud not be completed.
The punishment for not doing the puzzle was having the hint button inactive for 5 minutes. I felt this was over the top and a bit too much. I get you should have some punishment, but that was just too much.
These minor flaws are the only things I could find wrong with this game. I really loved it. I'm positive you will too.

Love the series as a whole!!!
I think this series of games is great. The Collector's Editions for Briar Rose and Rise of the Snow Queen were not recommended to me so I didn't realize they existed until after I had completed the SE. I will likely purchase the CE now that I know! Great suite of games and the graphics only get better as the games progress. Great stories with interesting and challenging mini-games, hidden objects, and puzzles.

Curse of the Briar Rose
This game was amazing. I enjoyed the story line and can't wait to play the Frog Prince. The HOG were not as hard as I would have liked, but the other puzzles gave a variety of levels to keep it interesting. The graphics were great and very gripping. Overall I would suggest this game to anyone who loves adventure games.

I really love this game but why not in Collector's Edition for MAC? Oh well. Gives it a good started to the Exile Prince anyway.

I really enjoyed this game. The graphics and storyline were both good and the puzzles were just right in difficulty.
