Surface: Strings of Fate is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a boring HO game A really good game, except for the ending which I thought could have been better. The graphics are amazing as is the audio and when you're at the beach you not only see but can hear the waves. It's like that in each area. There's a lot to do from figuring out mazes that won't have roadblocks to putting together a dead man's uniform. Your H.O.'s may not always be just the look and click either. And of course you have your mini puzzles. Great storyline and we all know there's more of these guys out there because they're already planning their next game. I would have liked them to get knocked back more than just a few pegs. You'll enjoy this game. I gave it a 5/5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Defeat those smug brothers I love the Surface games. As other reviewers have observed, this is similar to Game of Gods, can even be called installment two of GOG. OK, yes, we have saved our sisters countless times, and this is the ultimate goal of the game. The adventure to accomplishing this is loads of fun. Great artwork, different HOS, challenging puzzles and mini games. At times I found the instructions to mini games confusing, but once I started trying, it became clear what they were getting at. I wanted this game since playing the demo when the CE came out. The appeal of CE s is totally lost on me, so I waited for the SE to be released. I had a great time playing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A DEFINITE "PURCHASE" FROM THIS POPULAR SERIES!!! Wow. This is the 11th installment of the long running series Surface! This edition of Surface: Strings of Fate, really shows how the developers have renewed their efforts in the ground-breaking Surface series! I thoroughly enjoyed this latest endeavor playing the role of Rachel, tasked with saving sister Fiona in the Land of the Forgotten. Taking on the evil brothers when wisked away to the Land of the Forgotten to face brothers Gold and Blue is truly a fascinating feat. While Gold seeks redemption and wishes to help you in your challenge, Brother Blue proves to be a terrifying adversary and will not let you leave the magical land without a fight for Fiona. With a little help from Gregory, the gatekeeper you encounter in this land you might just stand a chance. You'll have to accomplish an array of intriguing puzzles and HOS as you proceed on your quest to save Fiona. You'll need to act fast too; for if you remain in this land TOO LONG both you and your sister WILL lose all your memories! It's also worth pointing out that this game bears a lot of resemblance to a previous edition of Surface: Game of Gods. You may want to play each of these back to back if you're new to the series or you just want to play both because their equally engaging. I love all the Suface series games, play each of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MOODY - Superbly told story with top-notch graphics, sound and characters. WONDERFULLY WEIRD settings. Available at BFG since 2017. Review based on completed game. Enjoy a trip that will take you through lands beyond this earthly existence...but where exactly? Find out. What does Death have to do with it, and the 3 Fates, who in this case are 3 gentlemen, named Gray, Gold and Blue. You'll get caves and desert and more. Around 8 HOPS. 4 divisions of sound, BEAUTIFULLY CLEAR graphics with stunning settings, and characters extremely well done. I loved the moodiness and creativity in this game. The bonus game was equally enjoyable! A very well told, absorbing story.Show less

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surface: Strings of Fate Loved this game and the challenges and fresh approach to the puzzles and the HOs. What I did not like is that I could not go back and find all the flowers in the extras section. I was really disappointed because I could not play the hidden games. There were no awards for any accomplishment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Elephants aren't what they were :( Very disappointed with this game, nothing new in it, storyline was weak, more runes, spells and magic looking for lost sister. Heard it before? yes, that's how I felt, kept hoping mini-games would lift it, but they didn't. Perhaps I'm just HO jaded, give it a try, we gamers are so different that you may enjoy it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was bored I was excited to see a new Surface game and I did not try it before buying it because the previous games have all been excellent. This game did not meet their previous standards.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ANOTHER GAME ABOUT SAVING MY SISTER AS TOLD A THOUSAND TIMES BEFORE Rachel and Fiona had just left the store when a speeding truck appeared out of nowhere, sideswiping young Fiona. Rachel rushes to her sister's side, only to find that she's not ALONE IN THE MIST, when a stranger appears, and then disappears with her baby sister! Rachel wanted to scream for help, but another man appeared out of nowhere, she froze, paralyzed with fear. Help is THE NOISE SHE COULDN'T MAKE, but the man assures her that he is here to help save Fiona. Rachel is told that her sister has been taken from REEL LIFE, by one of the three spirits of fate during a GAME OF GODS. To save Fiona, Rachel will have to pluck the STRINGS OF FATE, and leave the comforts of THE SOARING CITY behind, to discover the MYSTERY OF ANOTHER WORLD. Fiona has been taken to THE PANTHEON of the land of the forgotten where it doesn't take a VIRTUAL DETECTIVE to figure out this LOST TALE. Rachel only has one shot to save her sister before both sisters lose their memories in the land of forgotten. Just one chance, because you cannot RETURN TO ANOTHER WORLD that you don't even remember! I'm sure this game will receive many 5 star ratings, but for me, the storyline wasn't interesting enough to merit 5 stars. Not only is the plot similar to many other games, it's also already been done in this series, in Game of Gods. As I was playing the demo, I found myself distracted a few times, looking outside the window, at the birds and horses, which is a good indication that the storyline can't immerse you wholeheartedly. It's a good game, but not epICc. The Collector's Edition version doesn't have a whole lot of frills to offer, other than the usual Hidden Flowers (usually one red, one white in each scene) and 12 Morphing Characters. In my opinion, this Standard Edition version, is the better choice, because finding collectible flowers isn't worth paying twice as much money. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied with Listed Item Finds, Silhouetted Shape finds and Multiples of a single item find. Some HOP's have a small Mini Game to solve, and some of the Mini Games are more like a HOP. The Mini Games vary in difficulty, but nothing really challenging. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Drag items to the correct place in the scene during a short story. 2) Select a numbered path, 1-3 (scan over with mouse to see the projected path route) and click at the right time to avoid being caught by the guards. 3) Disable the infra red cameras in the correct order. 4) Connect the dots to recreate the picture shown on the instructions. 5) Arrange the figurines on the shelves so that no matching one shares the same row or column, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. 6) Combine the stone halves in the center circle in the order shown on the clue. The top button rotates pairs the bottom button moves the pieces to the center circle.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What a disappointment! I have three of the previous ‘Surface’ games, and enjoyed playing them. So, when I saw another in the series available I thought it might make a good addition to my collection. I was wrong! Quite frankly, I am at a loss to understand the high rating given this game by some other reviewers with whose opinions, generally, I find myself in agreement. The story is one we’ve played far too many times —sister taken by an evil being, only we can accomplish the rescue, and then only after undergoing many trials, finding various items of essential value and, of course, by defeating the entity. Even though, as I’ve frequently said, there are a finite number of plots that lend themselves to games of this type, and many of them offer a sufficient twist to make the game interesting, the developer of this game didn’t even make a pretense of a twist. This is just more of the same old story. The graphics are stunningly bad! The characters, and other essential items, appear to be merely laid over a static background. The music, various sounds, and voice-over narratives are equally poorly done. HO sequences and mini-games are, again, of the same type we’ve endured over and over again from developers too lazy to innovate. I always end my reviews with the caveat that you play the demo and decide for yourself, but not this time. This is such a poorly made product that I recommend that you save your download limit for a game far more worthy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Everyone has an off day and this is Elephants! I'm a little late posting my review and it most likely will not be seen by many if anyone but I just wanted to put my two cents in just in case someone is on the fence about purchasing this game. DON'T! I've played all the Surface games, Mystery of Another World, Game of Gods and Soaring City are 3 of the best games I've ever played. I enjoyed all the others as well except for Noise she couldn't make. This game is better than the latter but not by much. I just found this game to be very boring with the same ole, same ole, find an amulet put it here, rinse and repeat. The story line had great potential it just was not executed properly. It was also a kind of short game but in this instance, that was a blessing. Sorry just nothing here to be excited about.
