Mystery Age: The Dark Priests
Much better than the first one!
The storyline is good (save a village from the dark forces!...). The graphics are crisp. There are HOS and FROS. The puzzles are quite easy. The sound is good. There is no map, but that's no really a problem. There is only one playing mode, and there are sparkles, so no need to search. All in all, a nice, easy game. It took me 3 hours to finish and I don't regret buying it.

Good Sequel Great Sound and Graphics
Mystery Age The Dark Priests is a really good Sequel to the original, the flow of the game starts out a little disjointed and does not make a whole lots of sense to the story line but it picks up pace and has great sound and good Crisp Graphics. Good puzzles and actiivities that are relevent and fun to work out, sometime it keeps you wondering what is around the next bend.

Much better than expected
The first Mystery Age was ok if a little slow so I tried this demo and fortunately was teased enough to buy. An excellent mind exercise because they have not put in a map so you need to really think about where you have been and where you need to go. No spoon feeding which is a lovely change. The graphics are pleasantly fairy tale and as you revisit scenes several times there is enough going on to maintain the interest level. Don't forget to click anything that looks like it might move because it probably will - a lovely witty touch. It really makes you think - 'why do I need to know that' which only becomes apparent several levels later. I never find the music varied enough but this was ok and I would like visuals to be a little lighter for those of us without 20/20 vision but now I'm being picky. It took me much longer than anticipated to finish and I had to come back to it quite a few times which was a wonderful change. I'm looking forward to playing this again.

Watch out for the name
This is indeed a very good game, you should give it a try.
That said, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that I purchased it in November 2010, and it was then called Mystery Age 2 : The Dark Priests.
But if you download the present game trial, your Game Manager will not acknowledge it is the same game, so make sure you haven't got it already.

Beautifully Done HOG/FROG
The graphics were gorgeous, the soundtrack was soothing and fitting to the scenes. The hidden object scenes and fragmented hidden object scenes were very challenging.
The storyline was engaging. The colors of the landscapes were just beautiful.

Overall Great Game
This was a great game with awesome graphics and just enough difficulty to keep me intrigued. I loved the different style of HO games. I got a bit stumped towards the end, but figured it our finally. Nice challenge and fun...

Good story line about dark priests, and banishing them from a village.
No VOS, only text
HOS-find parts, and use the whole item in that HOS (really fun)
HOS-standard, quite a few of these, and many scenes revisited. Not always real clear scenes, and some objects are tiny
Lovely music and birdsong
Lousy hint system
A good amount of seek and find
Good puzzles, long skip
Good length: 5 hours casual

AWFULLY FUN AND ENTERTAINING
Beautifully crafted adventure story. About 6 hours. Nice combination of HOS and FRAGS in bright, brilliant colors ? nothing drab anywhere in the scenes. Cute animation ? for amusement, click on a few things that you think might have a reaction. Different music for outdoor and indoor locations. Your journal includes your discoveries as well as your tasks, frequently with a picture of the items needed and how to put them together to complete a task. Very polished and finely-tuned gameplay. Quite challenging.
Layout is easy to keep track of locations, which eminate from a central location. Many outstanding tasks at any one time, but they?re easy to keep track of because your activities are geared to their solution - no meaningless traveling or unnecessary steps to unnaturally prolong the game. You may find an object which will help you complete a task, but not find the other needed objects quite a bit later. Awfully fun and entertaining.
