The Curio Society: Eclipse Over Mesina 3.4 5 12 12
I LIKE THIS GAME!! I don't understand all the negative reviews on this game. I almost didn't demo it, but after watching the video decided to give it a try. I'm very glad I did. The graphics were excellent imo, and I liked the way objects would move when you clicked on them (horses over the doorway comes to mind). The map shows where action is available and allows you to jump. A suitcase that gives you background history when evidence is found. I like watching gargoles flying around and the fact you have a secret weapon you can shoot them with to save someone. All in all I enjoyed the demo and definitely plan to purchase the game. I didn't demo the CE, sometimes the extras distract from the game. I like to just concentrate on the adventure. Don't go by all the reviews, try it out for yourself. We all have different tastes and some of us are just getting tired of the genre. Might need a break. I know I took a break for a while and now enjoy the games once again. December 27, 2015
find out who wants to rule the world there is a custom level and an interactive map. you are trying out for the curio society after getting a mysterious message to report somewhere. you get help from a woman. she is also from the curio society and you are working together to find out who is behind the destruction. you have a light canon gun that can destroy the gargoyles and it gets charged by loading it with moon lenses. she has another type of gun that uses crystals. sequel....the way it ended i am fairly sure!!

What's with the bad reviews? I thoroughly enjoyed the demo on this one. The story is new - ish, and the graphics are excellent. You have some different tools this time; the suitcase does tell you about the items you find and gives you a piece of the story. You have an energy sphere thingy, which allows animals to assist you (at least that's what it has done so far in the demo), and you have a gun that can kill the gargoyles. The puzzles are not frustrating, I only had to skip one, so they are not totally simple, either. I liked all the voices, and the ambient sounds. The HOs in the demo seemed to be all of the list type, which are my favourites, anyway. There are some matching challenges and I love the star charting scenario....really fun. I think there is something for everyone in this game. Nice change. December 27, 2015
Better Game than earlier reviewed While I understand some reviewers' frustrations over the same old stories (I gave up on a game preview that started with a car going over the cliff-again) I think this game merits a little better review. The graphics were excellent and I liked the sound track much better than most. Yes, the story line seemed sort of familiar. But I thought the characters were different and I liked the "secret society" theme. Searching for items that made little sense at times that made no sense???? Par for the course. Some rather highly rated games do the same. I have stopped playing some of the series because of this. I only played the demo but enjoyed it. The game is fairly easy and so far not overwhelmed with ho scenes. It took just playing some of the games to understand the directions-another par for the course for me. I would probably get this with one of my free game coupons or during a sale. Or maybe just buy it outright. Give it a try for yourself. December 27, 2015
Between 4 and five stars. My rating is based on the following: Excellent graphics, not disturbing music and fitting background noises. A lot of fine details along the game with fitting noises just for fun. The animation is okay, but could have been a little bit better. Voices are really great and speeches were excellent. Difficulty can be customized, but e.g. helpful messages could not be excluded. Challenge was interesting enough, the objects are spread all about 4-5 locations. The mini games aren?t not that new, but they did have some new nice adjustments, e.g. ball-labyrinth with air pushes. The idea with the ?energy-ball Harry? was great and the ?Harry animated animals? were nice and funny. Additional, the investigation case has to be considered, that makes it more challenging. You can switch between HO and 3 matches. Some dislikes for not giving fully 5 stars: It took not even four hours to play through, it could have lasted longer. For finding a needed item, you often have to go back and for about 4-5 location. I don?t want to use the map, if I?m not stuck, so going back and for and back and for, is a little bit bugging. I?m wondering, why all bad sorcerers, ghosts? in most of all creeps games, have to do that annoying ?ha,ha,ha?. I can easily go w/o this. The character of the sorcerer Ignotus is too naive designed. Like a child would have drawn him. From my point of view, a character like him, should have been more interesting. January 7, 2016
Who Wants to Destroy Mesina Track the villains through good graphics and interesting hidden objects and mini-puzzles. You have a suitcase to give you background, a map and a hint key that will transport you to your next objective. February 27, 2016
I THINK I SHOULD HAVE TOLD THE DIRECTOR NO RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING In The Curio Society Eclipse over Mesina, you play a detective who has developed quite a reputation in solving previous cases. That reputation has caught the eye of a secret organization, The Curio Society who invites you to join them, well that is if you can pass their tests. So with their card in hand you head for the Museum of Rare Antiquities to see what lies ahead. After playing the game, I think it would have been better had I passed on this one and thrown that card away. The game has four modes of gameplay: Casual, Advanced, Hardcore, and Custom. If you choose the Custom setting you can fiddle with different settings to set up the game for the way you like to play. In the Custom mode the hints and puzzle skips will recharge in a range of 15 ? 90 seconds each. There are not a lot of other settings except to turn of sparkles and the tutorial. The graphics are okay but not as sharp as I like in a game. The voiceovers are hokey and they don?t get any better. The interactive transporter type map is present at the beginning of the game. Your other tools include a suitcase that is used to analyze bits and pieces of evidence that will provide information on the assembled clues. You also have ?Harry? who is useful at times. Although it lives in your inventory you have another tool, a Light Cannon that requires special mirrors before each use. The HOPS are interactive and varied in style with some being the list type while others are the silhouette type. If you really don?t want to find the items in the HOPS then you can switch to a match 3 game. At least in the beginning of the game, the puzzles were insultingly easy and it felt like they were thrown in to serve as nothing more than time-fillers. The good news is that as the game progresses the puzzles have a bit more substance and improve in difficulty. The Curio Society Eclipse Over Mesina is one of those games that you will either love or hate. It is not often that I don?t care for a game but this game just didn?t grab me. The dialogue was choppy and seemed ludicrous at times. I it felt like the game was thrown together without a lot of attention to the fine points that make a game at least playable if not interesting. It doesn?t help that Eclipse Over Mesina is another game with the worn out story line of an ancient evil that is wreaking havoc on a city. Given that most game developers have some level of creativity it would be very refreshing if they would manage to come up with something new. Although Eclipse Over Mesina is not the game for me, I recommend that you try the demo because you might have a different opinion. December 27, 2015
CE or SE? Really good art, but otherwise, nothing special, so you decide. As I always do, I mostly write to recommend whether to buy the CE or the SE after the SE is out because that is what I want to know if they are both out and I have bought neither. This review is based upon playing the demo of the CE. Here's my review of various aspects of the game, kept short because so many others have written long reviews explaining why this game is nothing special, so I will not bore you with repetition: The art = bright and colorful, sometimes beautiful. The music = so annoying I had to turn it off. The HOPs = word lists and outlines, not particularly interesting The Mini-games = can?t really remember The Story = unclear Extras = No ability to play mini-games and HOS over, though there is a bonus game and achievements. So not memorable. I think the SE might be a better buy that the CE because ==cannot play HOS and Minigames over and ==when I first played the CE, I had a two day break during the demo because Iife intervened. When I went back to it, I could not remember the first 20 minutes I played, except I thought "oh, this is that pretty one." If I couldn?t remember the game after 2 days, them perhaps the CE is not a good investment. But the art is bright and makes me want to look at it more. Of course, that is one of my favorite things, wandering around and looking at the pretty worlds that developers create. So try it. Maybe you will like it better than I did. And I definitely think it is worth the purchase of this SE at least. December 29, 2015
Not a bad game The game seemed fine from the trial. It was an average game that didn't malfunction or seem glunky or too tedious to navigate. It was OK! December 28, 2015
Only A Total Eclipse Can Help This Game The storyline is certainly creative, it's based upon the fact that you saved the neighbors baby from a burning house, yea! Then a mysterious man in a fedora and cloak, hands you a business card, with little information other than your heroic deed qualified you for a position in their secret society, The Curio Society! Of course we show up to the undercover society building disguised as an antiquity shop and a woman resembling the detective from New York Mysteries greets you and welcomes you to the "society" I must now prove my worthiness, (probably for the HR dept) I find several items in a HOP, play a simple Mini Game, and viola! I've just nailed this interview, and I'm a full fledged agent.....where's my gargoyle cannon?!? It gets better, I discover a "special" suitcase that can tell me everything I want to know about anything and everything (technically only things that will fit into the suitcase) after solving a quick jigsaw variation puzzle, the suitcase spits out a polaroid picture. So that tells me nothing about the item, I put in a gargoyle figurine, and I get a picture of an angel figurine in return. I thought it was supposed to tell me everything about that object. Oh well, good thing I recognized the angel statue as the same angel statue hanging on the wall of the Curio Society, so I place the picture upon the statue and low and behold, my ride has just been activated! Is it a sweet batmobile? Nope, it's a Hot Air Balloon! Do I arrive at my destination in time to save the world? Who knows how long it's gonna take on this puppy, do I even know how to operate one of these? The answer is no, because I have to make a crash landing, luckily, it landed me smack dab in the middle of Mesina, exactly where I needed to be(which btw I was able to find with my handy constellation map, good thing it was nighttime) helping Lara Croft rid the world of gargoyles with a diamond fueled cannon! (why didn't I get one of those, did I not pass the same test, are we not Curio Brethren? ) Let's fast forward to the evil dude Ignotus, with an evil agenda, who glides through the air just like Peter Pan with one leg slightly bent. This guy is as scary as it get's, after all he was the most powerful magicians of Ancient Rome, and he's got a thing for gargoyles. For whatever reason, he chooses only gargoyle statues to bring to life. Did ancient Romans even know what a gargoyle was, wouldn't it make more sense to work his evil magic on that lion statue? I have no desire to purchase this game, there's nothing to set this game apart from all the other games, archaeologists mistakenly awaken an ancient evil magician, evil magician brings statues to life to help him conquer the modern world, average joe is the only person who can stop him etc etc etc. December 27, 2015
