Millennium Secrets: Emerald Curse
Decent for the price
I bought this on a $3.99 deal, so it was a decent value. I was, however, glad I hadn't spent more on it. The gameplay was a bit monotonous - about 85% of the game was gathering multiples of one type of object and some "challenge" items, also multiples of one item.
The storyline was good. The storyline was the reason I finished, to be honest. It was a nicely done plot overall, and had a little twist at the end.
The gameplay itself did drag for me - most of the puzzles were more tedious than challenging, due to many having little in the way of any instruction. You can only slide so many panels, rocks, and open so many boxes before the scenes start to feel the same.
For the bargain price, it's a nice filler game, so I'm recommending - but with the caveat, not at full price for me.

so easy it was kinda fun..like a "no-brainer" type game.
point and click is all you do...no challenge at all..but not toooo bad none the less :)

Not my favorite series.
This is the 2nd one I have played and I wasn't crazy about the 1st game. Storyline was OK; graphics was not the greatest.
Puzzles were good; no HOs, which I like!
Little info in journal and no map, which is OK.
No collectibles or achievements, which doesn't bother me either.
VOs were good.
The game is not really bad; it's just that I don't care for a lot of machinery, cargo stuff and factory type areas. So, I will recommend for people who don't mind these types of games.

Glad it's over.
I initially enjoyed it when I first started playing it because it was something different BUT...There is absolutely no rhyme or reason to where and how you will find things, it is literally point and click and point and click. You have to click on every single thing in the room to find what you're looking for and boy did that get old fast!!! The story line was fine if not terribly exciting but the graphics???!!! Very 1990's. Glad I only paid a couple of bucks for it because I deleted it as soon as I was done.

The other reviewers were very generous. You will soon get bored with this game. Click, click, move boxes, repeat.
I'm glad I didn't pay full price because I won't see it to the end. Very disappointed. Fairly good story line, graphics not that good but that could be overlooked had the game play been better. Pass this one by.
