Rated 5 out of 5 by from Star Descendant is BEYOND my expectations For some reason sci-fi games are not my cup of tea which is strange to me since I enjoy movies, TV shows and novels of that ilk. I bought the CE version and find this game to be one of the better offerings during 2016. A lad named Thomas is opening birthday presents while his mom Sara is baking cookies. One gift has strange powers and leads Thomas to leave home where he is suddenly transported to a weird amusement park called Kosmos and subsequently to the planet Nenshe where he is abducted by Kaine who claims to be the lads father. The mom of course follows her son in order to rescue and return home and this is where the fun starts. The game is gorgeous to look at and characters are extremely life like. As Saras quest evolves there is an element of fantasy in some of the creatures she meets along the way. As is a must in any HOPA I purchase the story line must hold my interest and this saga does that. The HO segments and puzzles are extremely well done. At the start of moms adventure she embarks on a roller coaster ride that is so realistic that some players might get dizzy. I thoroughly enjoyed that some of the puzzles have some originality and not just being variations on often used puzzles. Mad Head games have become some of the best developments and Beyond Star Descendant is fantastic. My recommendation is to acquire the CE version for a couple of reasons. The bonus chapter predates Thomas and gives players a needed insight into why Kaine became who he is. The collectibles ( rockets of various shapes ) are nicely interspersed within each screen setting and some hard to locate. There is also a second bonus consisting of an extra HO segment where more than 50 items must be found. Those players who did not buy the CE should get this SE and also consider the higher priced version because it offers so much more, particularly to the story. This is to me a top 5 game of this year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Mother's Love From Here To The Moon And Beyond A mother's love knows no boundaries, she will travel to the end of the world, and other world's if necessary to protect her children. When Thomas receives an unusual present for his 11th birthday, his mother Sarah proves she's willing to do anything to keep him safe, even if she has to travel to a planet she's never even heard of, planet Nenshe. Sarah has always known Thomas was a star child, but she never suspected that he would one day return to the stars, and certainly not like this! Mad Head games has done it again! They have proven that a sequel can be just as brilliant as it's predecessor, and who doesn't like a good alien story, right? In The Collector's Edition version, the HOP's have a Morphing Object to find which is the same feature offered in the first Beyond, but I hate it when I forget to look for the morph because I'm caught up in the moment and there's no way to return if you do forget. Can you imagine how epic this game would be if it were offered in the game scenes themselves. I also found the graphics to be a bit bland, I get that its otherworldly, but the graphics are unappealing, I just hope they improve and perhaps move along to that jungle planet they talked about. I also wish they would have made a better attempt at tying the story to the first Beyond, but perhaps that will be clarified later on as well. You do have to put up with a sidekick with this game for a couple of chapters, at least, a Robotic Suitcase, he's adorable and reminds me of Number 5 (remember # 5 is alive??) but they could have been a little more creative considering this planet is light years ahead of us in the technology department. The Collector's Edition version also has usual Achievements to earn, and 31 very well blended Rocket Ships to find in every scene, so not much has changed from the original features. The Hidden Object Scenes have the typical Interactive List finds, but they also have fantastic and futuristic finds as well. One of my favorite HOP's was in a three part series which was a feature I enjoyed throughout the first Beyond. The first scene requires you to locate 3 navigation points by finding the exact galaxies shown. Then you eliminate the dimmest star by taking a section from the inventory bar and placing it onto the correct star to replicate the star shown. Finally you find planets that match the descriptions being told. In this CE, each HOP has a Morphing Object, and an icon to let you know if the Morph has been found which is helpful when you are doing a multi-layered HOP. The Mini Games are decent, and geared to be mechanical or space themed. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Trace the path shown with a laser pointer to attract the cat. 2) Arrange the books so that the spines form the symbol shown. 3) Multi-layered puzzle where you first place gears so they all make contact. Then you move ink tanks to their colored coded positions by sliding tiles to an empty space. Finally you swap picture fragments to create a ticket image. 4) Rotate the labyrinth using directional arrows to drop the ball into the hole. (I thought I needed that gravity ball?) 5) Rotate the wheels to complete the path from right to left, rotating one wheel may affect others. 6) Find the misplaced items in the scene an place them correctly to hear a story. The Collector's Edition has 19 replayable Hidden Object Scenes and 1 Bonus HOP, Morphing Objects within the HOP's,Music Soundtracks, Jigsaw Puzzles, 22 Character Biographies, 14 Achievements to earn, 12 Wallpapers, 31 Hidden Rocket Ships, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Curse of the Sequel The first BEYOND in the series was an amazing, difficult, fun and visually appealing game. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for it's sequel. While the game kept up with the Visual aspect of its predecessor, it lagged behind in every other category. Mad Head games seems to have rushed this game to the public to "strike while the iron was hot", instead of waiting to come up with a true sequel that could have extended the story where it was left off at the first. I can only hope that Mad Head games is working hard on a new game in this series that takes up where the first game left off, and that they will take their time to make the game even more challenging then the first was. I haven't lost my support for Mad Head games because of one bad, weak sequel, I just hope that my opinion doesn't change with the next release in this series!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from THE TRILLING ROLLER COASTER RIDE DOESN’T LAST THAT LONG When the first Beyond game arrived at BFG I was so swept away by a wonderful sci-fi game (something I would love to see more often) that had excellent gameplay, puzzles and HOP scenes. Beyond Light Advent is such a great game that I have played it several times since its release in July 2015. Today my wait for a sequel is over and Star Descendent seems even better. Star Descendent is so excellent that it will probably be at the top of my list for best HOPA game this year. Today is Thomas’ 11th birthday and among his presents is something special that is sure to change not only his life but that of his mother Sarah (you) as well. While you are busy taking care of a kitchen mishap, Thomas opens a present that soon has him on a voyage of discovery and danger. Follow Thomas on an incredible roller coaster ride that will take you on the adventure of a lifetime. The graphics in the game are beautiful as another world and the universe come to life. I love everything about this game and the graphics and sound are just a part of what make it so terrific. I don’t want to tell you too much about what to expect because discovery is part of the fun in Star Descendent. Early in the game you find a cute mechanical friend who helps you on your journey but you will find others as you progress. You also have an interactive map that will help you navigate through the game. While you are moving through the experience you will learn some amazing things about your son but most importantly the journey reinforces the love and bond between you and your son. The HOPs in the game are so well-designed and creative that they were fun to play – even the storybook style but there were far too many of those in the game to keep me happy. I don’t want to constantly look for misplaced items in the pages of a book. I guess I am a traditionalist and love the original style of HOPs where we find items from a list. I enjoy interactive HOPs but don’t think it is fun to move items to the correct place on a page. The puzzles are excellent and, again, very creative with some that seem different than those we normally see in HOPA games. I found most of the puzzles to be quite doable and, even though some seemed difficult for me, I think others might find them easy. I love puzzles in games and the ones in Beyond Star Descendent are, IMHO, terrific and fit well in with the storyline. If you like the CE version of HOPA games this one includes 31 collectible rockets to find, 19 morphing objects, achievements to earn as you play the game, bonus chapter, strategy guide, wallpapers, character gallery, music, replay of HOPs and a puzzles. As is sometimes the case and after giving the CE release a glowing review, I found the game a bit boring. It didn’t live up to my expectation and I eventually put the game on the shelf. I loved the first Beyond game but this one was not quite as good. In the end the game was full of portals that it was nothing different than any of the other games we see so often. Perhaps I am not as fond of this developer as I thought because they pretty much do the same thing over and over and over again. If you love storybook HOPS that became the rage with the Nevertales games, then this game might be one you will enjoy but as always, I recommend that you try the demo.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I didn't even finish that's how bored I was! Sorry I really didn't like this game at all. It started out pretty good with great promise, but after the demo things just go down hill! I had high hopes since the first game in this series Beyond Light Advent is one of my all time favorite games. This is a serious let down after that amazing game. None of the elements that made that game so great, were in this game. For example. meet and interact with characters throughout the game who actually help you in the game, a big turn in the game you never saw coming, games and hidden objects that lead the story forward etc. I will say the 3-D effect they added was very nice it made you feel a part of the game but it wasn't used very often. I started this game and have tried to finish it for over 2 months but, finally today I said you are really not enjoying this and you don't want to finish so I just deleted it. It was tedious and boring with a bunch of find this to put it here so you can find something else and put it somewhere else and none of it had anything to do with where you were or what you were trying to do. No I do not recommend. Sorry.
