Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera Collector's Edition
My Favorite PC game!
This was my first PC game that I ever purchased and it's also my favorite. The game play is great; the sound, colors, graphics, all superb in my opinion. I love that this follows the story of TPOTO but has a slight spin as well. I found it extremely fun and some puzzles were a quite a challenge; Icouldn't stop until I finished the game and bonus play (I ended up staying up til 4am to finish it!# I even told my Mother about it and she played it and loved it as well! Highly recommended, I would suggest it to anyone over 13 due to the mention of violence and macabre factor #I am a bit on the conservative side when it comes to that stuff.) Play "Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera," you won't be disappointed! :)

Phantastic, great solid game
The long abandoned ruins of the Paris Opera House is the abode of the jilted ghost who is still trying to plot the return of his lost love but it is the daughter of whom he has set his sights on as she is the perfect look alike of his long lost love.
The dialogue is adequate enough to allow information regarding the progress of the game and the phantom's haunting voice is heard at various times during the game. The music is also eerie and haunting but it has not the same effect of the movie with the booming sound of the organ reverberating through the catacombs of the ruins. The graphics are excellently portrayed, clear and colourful considering that the scenes are in the ruins of a burnt out building and the underground scenes are also dark and dingy. The snow scenes and the night views are still very clear and precise. The puzzles were ingenious, intriguing and tricky but were good fun solving them and they were not too difficult. The guide was a great help if you needed some assistance. It lets you know what is needed to be done or what is needed to be found and gives you a subtle hint of what is needed to accomplish the feat. The map is a great help in traversing the many rooms and locations but as the game wears on you get familiarised with where you need to go without referring to the map a great deal. It also informs you where you are and what sections need attention. The hidden objects were quite surprisingly clear and reasonably easy to locate, having said that a few needed a little hint. In summary a great game well presented and well depicted with a credible story line, quite a bit of travelling about from location to location but this added to the intrigue and gave a sense of achievement. Well worth the money.

Where's the Ending?
I loved this game!! I'm just really hoping for a sequel since there really wasn't a resolution... sequel please!!!

My favorite game! And I've played a lot of them!
The storyline, the graphics, and the uniqueness of this game drew me in. I never wanted it to end! Surprising ending. Can't wait for the sequel!! Most other games can't compare.

If you love the movie, you will love the game....
Being a bit of a musical nut, I purchased this game, and was at first disappointed, since the main characters, Christine and Raoul, are past all of the Phantom stuff. However, once I began playing the game, I discovered that their daughter going through it is fascinating, since she seems to know nothing about the whole fiasco. The game is excellent, my only complaints: too short, and she talks too much. I finished the whole game in 3 hours and 16 mins, including the bonus game after the end of the actual game.

The best game I've ever played
This is the most beautiful game I've ever played.The story is great, but the end is a little disappointing.

Darn that ending...
This is an interesting game especially if you love The Phantom of the Opera like I do. The graphics and score were wonderful and the voice overs were equally as good but the over abundance of HOS, extremely slow hint and skip load times, the endings of both the main game and extra chapter, and the overall lagging gameplay experience made me give this about a 3.5 rounded to 4. Though since you have the SG, which I found very helpful, the hint button is only needed in the HOS if you are having extreme trouble finding an item. Now the downsides I mentioned might sound worse than they are but the biggest disappointment I had was the two endings. I expected after the ending of the main game the bonus chapter to be a decent length and would rap up the story. Nope it was short and disheartening. Overall it was fun just not as much as I hoped it would be.

a good adventure
Has voice over and music is good. Graphics are also real good. The HOS are quite Challenging as some of the items are hard to see, somewhat dark is places. The puzzles are pretty good. Has a good flow to the game. Lots of talking going on and a lot and I mean lots of clicking for no really good reason. Good game.

a very pretty game
I like this game. It tried to have the scary and creep factor, but it was just not all that scary. The artwork was fantastic. I like the voice over in the game. The only thing I really didn't like about this game was the ending. It ends abruptly, makeing the game seem unfinished somehow. The extra game play was very short, and didn't resolve anything. The extra game play on this game was not worth buying the collector's edition if that is why you buy the extra long games. If it would have ended better and the extra game was longer I would say this was a great game, but how it was it was just a ok game.

Wish they had read the book.
As a Phantom Phan who's read the book repeatedly I found certain things so distracting that it ruined some of the fun of the game for me.
While most movies portray Christine as a brown eyed brunette in the book she is a blue eyed blonde who suffers from nearsightedness.
Joseph had killed himself after getting trapped in Erik's torture room. (Erik being the Phantom's real name.)
These, along with other details, made it distracting for me. Just once I'd like to see people actually follow the book rather than the multitude of movie and stage versions. Please, at least keep Christine's blonde hair, blue eyes, and vision troubles.
It's fun otherwise. Though I did have to turn the voices off as Evangline has a very annoying speaking voice.
