Eventide 2: Sorcerer's Mirror is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did The Tides Turn Uneven? I was totally surprised to see that Eventide was released as a Standard Edition! The first Eventide was released as a Collector's Edition, and even though this game isn't a Collector's Edition, it does offer several features that usually aren't offered in a Standard version. There are 14 Cards with Imps, and 20 Glimmering Mirrors to collect as well as Achievements to earn in several different categories. I have several punch card coupons, so I used a coupon without hesitation. This game is just what the doctor ordered, and I'm not disappointed in the least bit! This isn't a bad game at all, especially if you compare apples to apples, so for a Standard Edition price, it's well worth it. The graphics are a bit cartoonish, especially some of the characters, but the storyline is decent, and some of the features are really good. You have a journal that has the usual objectives section, and you have a Herbarium section that can be used as a picture reference during the HO's (which I'll explain in the next paragraph) and you have a section that lists your "Moral Choices" During the game, you will be given the chance to make several moral decisions, and the decisions you make WILL affect the ending of the game. To me, this is a cool feature, this option has been used before, but usually they are generic questions and answers that don't really change the outcome. The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly FROG's, where you find several fragments that will fit together and form a useful inventory item. The other Hidden Object Scenes require finding multiples of different herbs, berries, mushrooms etc. and you can refer to your journal Herbarium for pictures to help you identify them. The Mini Games are fairly easy, and there's not really anything new, but they aren't that bad. Below are brief descriptions of some of the Mini Games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Use gloves to drag thorny branches away one at a time. 2) Click on objects indicated as keywords in a sentence. 3) Connect identical symbols with an uninterrupted chain in three different puzzles. There are 17 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 25 replayable Mini Games, 7 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 14 Cutscenes, 24 collectible Notes, 20 Glimmering Mirrors, 14 Cards with Imps to collect, 5 HOP related Achievements, 3 Mini Game related Achievements, 12 game related Achievements, 7 Speciality Achievements to earn, choose well and enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ~~~Eventide 2 is a mythical masterpiece filled with imagination!!!~~~ Kudos to Artifex Mundi and Big Fish for this sequel to the 2015 Eventide Slavic Fable. Now more than ever is an exciting time to be a Big Fish game member with their latest trend of offering more superb Standard Edition games to members! In this edition you’re out rock-climbing with your niece and she gets kidnapped by a crazy wizard who wants to try and resurrect his dead neglected wife? That’s the story behind The House of Fables’ Eventide 2: The Sorcerer’s Mirror, which is a strange mix of adventure game and hidden object game. The game is set out by a series of different areas that have a variety of puzzles that you need to solve to move into the next one. This allows developer House of Fables to make a story that is more involved than a series of hidden object puzzles that don’t have much to link them. Aiding this is the series of cut-scenes, though these are pretty janky: the people move somewhat robotically, their lip syncing is very well executed and the magical effects really fits in with the rest of the animation style. The main focus of Eventide 2 is the hidden object puzzles, which come in three varieties: a classical “here’s a list, find these things”, a slight variance that shows you an image of what you’re looking for and a “find x amount of this thing”. The first is used to find a specific item in an environment, the second is to find pieces of quest items that you then assemble and the third is to gather ingredients for the crafting system. The crafting system is based mostly around herbs and healing remedies, so you’ll be locating mushrooms and plants and then combining them in your inventory. These are very specific, and you get a list each time that you have to make a recipe. The exceptions to this are the few times you need to either break something or repair tools, though this involves either just clicking a lot or dragging a pole to a tool head. To mix up the tried-and-tired hidden object gameplay, some of the hidden objects are actually hidden behind other things, or are in locked boxes. The game tells you which objects you can’t see by highlighting its name, and there’s normally only a couple in each section. These added an extra layer of thought, but become somewhat obvious as the cursor changes when you hover over something you can move. There’s a variety of other puzzles to fill in the gaps, though none of them are especially taxing or original. Eventide 2 holds your hand a bit (expert players may not like this), and the only puzzles that are reused are object identification puzzles that ask you to click on the symbol that represents a word. At the first two difficulty levels you can skip these if you wish, and you don’t really miss anything if you came for hidden object. Eventide 2 has moral choices throughout, and it claims that it makes a difference to the story but it doesn’t really. It is a case of choosing to be an honest, helpful, nice person or a total jerk, but both seem to be means to a similar end. There are also two types of collectibles hidden throughout the game, handheld mirrors and imp cards. The cards are pretty easy to spot, but the mirrors blend in rather well with a lot of the scenes. Eventide 2: The Sorcerer’s Mirror was a little more than I expected which is awesome: it’s been many years since I last played a hidden object game and I didn’t think that the genre would have moved on as much as it has. The writing was obviously translated into English, and the voice acting matches the odd look of the cut-scenes, but the gameplay is amusing for the two-three hours there and it has a more than satisfying conclusion. Don't miss out on this epic adventure and if you haven't played the 1st Eventide, I highly recommend it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two thumbs up! Great game! I thoroughly enjoyed this game, it had a great storyline and a greatbuy for a SE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OH NO, JENNY'S IN TROUBLE Another great SE game this week and they are both from the same developer. In Eventide 2: Sorcerer’s Mirror you must save your niece from an evil sorcerer who wants to use her for his nefarious purpose. While scaling a dangerous cliff, you and Jenny are almost killed but even worse, Jenny is kidnapped and now you must find her at all cost. It looks like Sorcerer’s Mirror was originally designed for release as a CE since there are collectibles to be found during your adventure. The graphics tend to be a mixed bag with some of them being hand-drawn while others seem to be computer generated. Overall, aside from the coloration, the graphics are excellent. The game offers a custom setting but you cannot turn off the misclick penalty so I don’t really see the point. When the game begins you are told that the choices you make along the way will change the game’s outcome. You have an interactive map to help you during your adventure as well as a Journal that includes notes, tasks and a Herbarium that identifies rare plants. Although many of the HOS are fragmented object scenes (FROGs) there is still some variety to be found. I happened to like the scenes as most objects were easy to spot and not dreadfully small as those in a recent game that almost made me crazy. The scenes are well-designed and enjoyable to play. Yes, the puzzles are very easy but there are times when I enjoy easy puzzles. I am a puzzle lover and look forward to them in HOPA games but I enjoy a mix of moderate to challenging puzzles in a game. If the puzzles are all too easy then they quickly become rather boring. I am hopeful that the puzzles will increase with difficulty as I move through the game. There is no strategy guide but the game includes wallpapers, music, concept art, videos, and replay of HOPS and Mini-games. All in all the game has everything that most CEs include aside from the SG and Bonus game. I am finding the gameplay to be quite enjoyable. Even though the storyline is nothing new it is interesting and well-told. I happen to enjoy games from this developer so I purchased the game right away this morning with one of those free coupons I acquire for purchasing CE games. Please try the demo to see if Eventide 2: Sorcerer’s Mirror will be a keeper for you as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CE Bling for SE Price! Add a Star! The story opens with you climbing a rock wall with your niece. The weather takes a strange turn for the worst. The two of you struggle to the top of the rocks only to have two strange men grab your niece and cut your climbing line, leaving you to plummet downward. You will have to find and rescue your niece from a hidden village run by her kidnapper, Tvardosky, a scorcerer. He controls the villagers by entrapping the souls of their loved ones in a large mirror and letting them “speak” to the deceased for a price. Good stuff: We have an SE with lots of the features we usually pay CE prices to get. There will be two different collectibles, four levels of game-play, wallpapers, replayable HOPs and mini-games, and a decent story, all for that SE price. The story is not stellar but at least you have a fairly good idea of what's happening by the end of the demo, with the added attraction of having some of your choices affect the stories outcome. The HOPs and mini-games are average, but manageable as you look for those collectibles! The only missing CE pieces are the SG and a bonus chapter, both of which I can live without. All that CE goodness at an SE price earned this otherwise fairly average game its fourth star. Bad stuff: There is an odd shifting of artistic styles as well as the usual logic lapses - I hacksaw through chains literally behind the backs of three imp guards outside the bad guy's gates after the guards have warned me off. Later I enter an abandoned house that was presumably destroyed by Tvardosky and manage to smelt some metal to make a hook in the still warm embers of the decaying fireplace. All that said, I am in favor of an SE with CE perks, especially with a decent story. Please try the Demo and see what you think.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MIRROR, MIRROR IN A CARRIAGE – GUARANTEES ETERNAL MARRIAGE OVERVIEW: Looking for eternal love – a love which lasts forever? Do the words “Til’ death do us part” make you shiver when you think about the loss of that loved one? Then contact the wizard, Tvardosky in this 4-star SE game! For a few rubles, he will reconnect you with your dearly departed via a magic mirror he keeps in a carriage. This hotline to the afterlife keeps your loved one in limbo (neither dead nor alive) but in constant contact with you for a price much cheaper than Verizon or AT&T. In this saga, you return as Mary, an auntie-to-the-rescue of your niece, Jenny. When you and your niece engage in some rock climbing, you both find yourself perched on the cliff – dangling between life and death! Through your heroic effort, you save both you and your niece, Jenny, only to have her kidnapped by a centuries old wizard and his henchmen. Lucky Jenny! It seems she is the spitting image of the deranged wizard’s bride who died centuries ago. Now, it is up to you, auntie, to save her before she is used in a ritual. This game may appeal to beginning gamers, children, those of Slavic descent, or those who like easy-breezy games. However, it does not appeal to me. I got tired of going back-and-forth in the game from place-to-place looking for supplies. That fact, plus creating potions and medicines repetitiously throughout the demo, soon became boring and slowed down the pace of the game. I am shocked by the grainy graphics in some places within this game. The choices you make in the game will give you alternative endings which is a rather novel concept. Unlike most SE games, you do have two collectibles – imp cards and mirrors. However, there is NO strategy guide. The game may be better after the demo; however, I found nothing to impel me to persevere in the quest to save this poor lass-in-distress. However, I must admit the Slavic music throughout the game was a nice touch. HOP SCENES: The scenes are principally FROGS and storybook scenes in which you locate items listed in BOLD letters. The FROGS create inventory items. There is also a mini-HOP scene in which you collect herbs to create a medicine. PUZZLES: The puzzles are easy. In one you remove thorns in sequential order to pass through a gate. Another is a storybook puzzle which is more of a HOP scene than a puzzle. There is a connection puzzle in which you connect like-colored tokens without intersecting lines. LEVELS: Casual, Advanced, Expert, Custom Hints and Skips: 10 to 120 seconds HOP Skips – 2 to 240 seconds EXTRAS: Map is provided as you play the game 27 Achievements Replay 17 HOP scenes and 12 puzzles Collect 20 Mirrors and 14 Imp Cards 7 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art, Music, 14 Cut scenes HERE ARE THE DETAILS (SPOILERS) FOR THOSE WANT MORE INFORMATION ON THE HOP SCENES AND PUZZLES IN SEQUENCE HOP SCENES: A. FROG. Create a utility knife. (AKA Swiss Army knife) B. Mini-HOP game. Collect 18 herbs. C. Mini-HOP scene. Locate 10 pieces of wormwood. D. Storybook.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, but far too short. Interesting Slavic Style. My rating is based on playing the entire SE. It meets most of my requirements, except length and limited adjustability of difficulty. Therefore I rated only 3 stars. - Story: Fantasy, fairy tale. The story depends on the choices you make. That was quite interesting. And had consequences in the final. Your friend Jenny was kidnapped. You have to find her and rescue her. An evil sorcerer is going to use her, to reincarnate his deceased wife. - Difficulty can be customized partly. Tutorial, sparkles, map issues, glitter, penalty and hint / skip recharge. Not adjustable: contextual pointer, plus item indicator, helping texts - Graphics/locations: fairytale like. Interesting style, which was east European. Has reminded me of the old Russian fables. - Animation and Voice-overs and Music: Good job. - Tools: you have an interactive map only. - HO’s: Typical types such as descriptions and silhouettes. Nothing new. Not particularly difficult. You can’t switch to another mode. - Adventure part: Standard: 3-5 scenes to be investigated. The tasks are logical, nothing far-fetched but also nothing that requires much thought. Dislikes: - Length: I needed not even 3 hours for completing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mirror has some cracks in it Had this game made its appearance 7-8 years ago when HOPA was in its infancy I would have bought it immediately and been happy to do so. Unfortunately and due primarily to the greater degree of sophistication we generally see today, Eventide 2 naturally falls short in comparison. My primary fault with Sorcerer's Mirror is the amateurish drawing and movements by characters particularly during cut scenes. The way things look in this game is far too primitive and leaves me unable to look past this down side so that I could be pleased with other aspects of the game. There are things to like here. I enjoy the usage of both traditional word lists and fractured objects while seeking items for use elsewhere. What I don't like are having every cliched task seen way too often in games. Examples are oiling rusted things, finding a screwdriver for obvious use, locating a vessel and then filling it with water for yet another task, etc. Worst is the too simplistic objective of finding but 2 items in 3 or 4 scenes and placing them within a screen shot to further the story. It's childish play and I am personally way beyond that. Artifax Mundi is listed as the producer. Either this is a game it created years ago and had it mothballed or AM is a go-between with a less skillful developer and vendors such as BFG. I can endorse this game for beginners to the genre. For veteran HOGgers I cannot since the game has not much meat on its bones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A decent game for beginners... Sorcerer’s Mirror is a story-driven, fairly linear HOPA that includes a random factor we rarely see: at several crucial turning points, you’re given a choice as to how to proceed, and the choices you make will affect the story, gameplay, and ending. This is a welcome innovation to what has become cookie cutter gameplay. HO scenes present some variation and include fragmented objects, narratives in which you find the capitalized word or the silhouette, interactive list, and multiples. Puzzles are all quite easy and included removing thorny vines (pick-up sticks) and connecting tokens of the same color without crossing paths. Adventure/exploration included the usual: do favors for people and get stuff in return, find and use tools and keys, search for clues, etc. Graphically, backgrounds were charmingly hand-painted, while objects close-up were rendered with intricate detail and texture. The NPCs were fully animated posers during cutscenes, but a bit two-dimensional during actual gameplay. The music was appropriate to the theme, but not outstanding. Voiceovers were done well. Though this is a standard edition, there are collectible cards and mirrors. Overall, this is a decent game for beginners or those who are looking for relaxing gameplay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty . . . cute . . . that sums it up. I'll leave the play-by-play to others, as usual, and just talk about the game. The graphics are pretty, blurry in many places bit that may be the artists purpose. The sound is appropriate, but it is of such slow tempo that it makes the game drag. Speaking of drag, that's what the play does. Although I tagged this as recommended, as always, try before you buy. If you don't do that, here are a few caveats, apart from those obvious from my other comments —this is not a game for an experienced player of CG preference; nor is it a game for those who prefer high-tech action; nor is it a game for the easily bored. It is graphically pretty, and the game overall is cute but, once again, try before you buy.
