OK fishies, you must be careful choosing this game. It has some dark moments, and sad story line. Not sure everyone will enjoy this game.
I did enjoy the game, however, I usually choose different games anyway.
Hints were quick, puzzles were good.
Characters were likeable/hateable....you choose.
You will follow the lives of several people and unravel a mystery. This game has beautiful graphics, butterflies were everywhere. Diary included in this game, as well as locket. If challenge is what you want, some areas were very clever.
Good luck. I am gonna recommend this game, for the few population who like this sort of game.

"The Heritage" is a classical fragmented object game in which you search for fragments of objects which you have to place to uncover "memory moments" which tell you the story.
The game has only one level of difficulty. You often have to place the found objects in order to find more fragments, and for this you often switch scenes. The idea behind this is quite good and fun, and the story is interesting. My major criticism with this game are the graphics: They are often not clear enough to make out any details clearly, which reduces the fun factor. The music can be repetetive at times.
The game is not too challenging - most fragments are easy to spot (the only difficulty there, as mentioned, the graphics) and the mini-games are easy and skippable. The "hint" button only works for fragments, not for knowing where to place which object.
Average FROG, I'm not sure I would recommend it for buying.

Rather short "Ravenhearst" game as FROG
Review based on finished game.
Actually there is not much to say about it. If you've played the original Ravenhearst you know the story, only that it's told three times over. At times the story is a bit creepy, but the end did not make much sense to me. I like FROGs, so there is a lot of fragmented stuff to find. As usual, finding objects that feel out of place is not very tricky, some objects are cleverly hidden though, sometimes on the edge of the screen, where you tend not to look.
Anyway, in this game sometimes it's not that complicated finding the fragment, but rather where to place the finished object.
Minigames are varied, but very easy throughout the game.
Bottom Line: Only recommended if you are desperately trying to find another FROG.

The story is nonexistant. What there is of it is sketchy at best and didn't make much sense. I can't believe I paid for this. Graphics are murky. The fragments are obvious. The joy factor is nil. Don't waste your money; there are so many good games out there.

Fell flat and half of that.
Drawn in by the timeline of 1916, since I am interested in that time period, I tried the entire hour long trial. In that time I managed to get half way through chapter 12, and I am assuming near the end of the game.
The scenery is relatively nice and the puzzles are fun, but not even slightly challenging. There's no challenge mode either so I can't make the game any harder.
The storyline is shaky. While you're staying at your Grandfather's manor, they never mention this in the game. In the game you are just going through a mansion and heading through, finding diary entries between a family. The story seemed rushed and completely unstable. One second it goes one way, then it abruptly changes, and not in a pleasingly 'twisted' way. More like, the makers of the game didn't actually think through the story as they were putting it into the game.
Again, I got through twelve very short chapters in the hour and would've got through more if I hadn't have had some problems with the puzzles. They weren't hard, but sometimes the puzzles would be complete and wouldn't register as finished, so I'd have to wait and 'skip' the puzzle instead.
A few bugs, a half written storyline, and not much else. The demo can be played at will, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing the game unless you know exactly what you are getting into.
