Reincarnations: Uncover the Past
You'd Be Mad To Miss This!
This game is a gem. Pure and Simple. Here are my thoughts:
Hint and Skip buttons have a great recharge speed.
It's a rare occasion when I compliment the puzzles of a game. There were a mix of easy and hard puzzles, which added to the fun of the game.
A great game is complimented by great graphics and music. The graphics match the feel of the game and are very well designed, while the background music is ideal for the game.
The Hidden Object Scenes. There were no shortage of Hidden Object Scenes. I liked how at least one of the items was in a group (x5, x4 etc.) and how there were interactive objects.
Sometimes there were too many tasks and I'd be going all over the place to try and complete them.
The only downsides to this game would be that sometimes it was really hard to figure out what to do next, and the ammount of going back and forth Id have to do. I'd find something some place which would be needed 3 scenes back. This really bothered me.
Overall, I couldn't find a fault with this game. From its great storyline, to its graphics and music. I loved everything about it and I'm sure you will too.

Take notes with this one
This was a collection of three games with very different themes. I found taking notes helped keep track of all the different tasks. Lots of finding items and backtracking to use them. The first is a murder mystery - it's long challenging and good. The second is based in Renaissance Venice. Absolutely gorgeous, but the story line was a bit silly. A couple of times I had to resort to the walkthrough and as the next step was just not obvious. The third chapter was very short, and easy, but enjoyable. Gameplay would give this only a 3 star rating, but the graphics nudge it up to 4 stars for me.

Great little game
This game is a fun but easy game to play. Has lots of segments to play to complete. I got a little tired because I thought it was too easy. Worth buying.

Better than the first one.
I found this game much better than the first one: "Reincarnations: the Awakening".
I played in challenge mode.
- The storyline is interesting. You have to escape from various places.
- The graphics are a bit blurry but the objects in the HOS are still easy to find.
- The puzzles are sometimes challenging.
- There is no journal, just a task list.
- In the challenge mode, you have only hints in the HOS. The help button is activated after some time in the puzzles, making it quite interesting.
- There is no map and, in the first chapter, a lot of going back and forth.
It took me 2 1/2 hours to finish. All in all, a good and intriguing game.

Only if you realllllly like HOG
Among the many categories provide us there is Adventure HOG, there should also be a category of plain HOG. These types of games should be in a category like word games, or match 3. I found no adventure in this game. There is a storyline although there is no need for one as it is all about the HOG which appear every 2-3 steps. .
There are some rather nice, if not beautiful scenes as well as dingy gloomy (for the asylum, very appropriate). The HOG scenes are full, not junk pile they are rather well done and not very difficult. There is no map; you don?t need one your limited to a small area. There is considerable to & fro. The music is appropriate, sometimes spooky. I counted two chapters of ?reincarnations?. It is a very short game approximately 2 hours without skipping puzzles, which are not difficult (I played in the challenge mode).
It would be best to just call it an HOG and don?t confuse with calling it an adventure HOG. Some are looking for an adventure game, and we will put up with a few HOG scenes (only because it seems we have to).
As for recommendation, yes for HOG fans, no for adventure fans.

Another Russian Wonderpiece
Based on complete game. Several hours long. Probably not for newbies to HOGS. As with other VOGAT games (I never realized until today just how many I had), the game was enjoyable, great graphics, good background music, terrific story and gameplay. There are two reincarnated lives to visit (each of good length and is a story in its own right) plus the short prologue and the asylum.
The artwork for Venice was particularly gorgeous, bright and colorful. As seems to be the pattern, the artwork for the asylum is gloomy ? everything looks old and decrepit even though the main character is supposedly there currently. Couldn?t help but laugh, while in the asylum, over the trading of chocolate for a button and the panda rocking on the too-small rocking horse. And I must say that the termites sure do work fast in the first reincarnation.
There are quite a few puzzles (none repeated) ranging from easy to somewhat difficult and plenty of typical HOS; the objects are not too small and there is some interaction required. There is a moderate amount of traveling back and forth in the stories. 4.5 stars deserving to be rounded upward. Ending: more to come. They will be on my buy list.

Eh...Just didn't like the graphics
I played the trial version of this game. I was interested in the story line. I was not inspired to continue after the trial version. The opening scenes that told the story were not animated. It was just switching from one sheet of paper to the next. The game felt that way too. I didn't get the illusion of moving in a 3D space so I could not get into it. The drawings did not have finer details. The protagonist is even much more simplistic in the game than in the cover photo. The games, HOS, and story were good. I liked that the HOS required taking actions within the scene to uncover some of the objects. I am not sure how the life I was in was going to relate back the main story. I think it may have evolved later but it seemed like the reason for the reincarnation theme was just to have a reason to play multiple themes within the same game. Its an OK game. I would not have regretted it if I paid for it before the trial. I could get a higher quality game for the same amount of money. One of the reasons I love these games is for the art and this one was below par. I wish there was a better reincarnation game because it is a good idea.

Uncover the Past
I really like the first one, this one the developer seems to go downhill. The game is short, you are only presented with three levels. Jane is admitted to asylum, again, hospital theme. It gets old already. The visual is excellent, as many other games from Vogat, but the story is getting old, Jane will always visit different scene as her 'reincarnation', but that's about it. It's like playing three different short stories in one game.
