Magic Encyclopedia: Illusions is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Encyclopedia: Illusions Good story with heaps and heaps of illusions to solve. Not your typical HOG but truly worth the patience as the more you venture on the more the story evolves. Great scenery, sound/music, puzzles to busy along the way. Thanks Big Fish:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CHANGE FROM REALITY TO ILLUSIONS AND BACK This is a wonderful frag game. The frags are used to solve puzzles. There are two layers to every location - reality and the illusions left by a book thief. Artistry is colorfully hand-drawn and lovely to gaze upon. Discover ways to change how you look at things - ex: fix potions that remove some of the illusions to expose additional frag parts, as portions of objects are in the reality and the illusion. Exits aren't marked, although you'll get a enlightened area for them. So you'll find yourself exiting into another area you hadn't planned on at the moment until you get used to it. If you get "need to look elsewhere" from the hint, it merely means that you need to change from reality to illusion or vice versa. But by Chapter 2, you will get a pair of goggles that let you see the two levels without the fancy trappings. Well thought-out game that's a lot of fun to play. Although there are other games that have you switching from one type of scene to another, it is usually by illumination. This game seems to have a unique way of accomplishing that task of changing (although you do change the illumination in the first part of the chapter). I think this game is actually better than the other 2 Magic Encylopedia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Game! I loved this game. I played the first Magic Encyclopedia game and wasn't very impressed, so I wasn't expecting much from this one either. But the ratings convinced me to give it a try. It was worth it! This is a MUCH better, much more sophisticated game than the first one. The basic procedures are the same; you're trying to find fragments of objects. Then when you find all the fragments, you can use the objects to move you along further in the game. The Illusionist has imprisoned all the master magicians, so Catherine must try to save them all and defeat the Illusionist. The game is charming and well-thought out. There are 5 chapters, so it's satisfyingly long. Each chapter has about 4 rooms to explore. I loved the game and highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical Illusions I love this game, was getting so bored with the usual hidden object type game. Please, please can we have MORE of these, and maybe they could form a separate category? Jenny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of My All-time Faves! I was getting bored with straight HO games and stumbled across this one out of luck. If you like FROGs (fragmented objects) mixed with medium challenge mini-games and a cool way to change the scene to see it in other ways, this is for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 in a series I love this game but Barleybrave said that this was the 3rd in a series. What are the other two???? I would love to play them. This game was just too much fun and there needs to be more like this one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The longer I played the better it got To start off with I thought this game was vague, hard to follow and confusing. The fragmented hidden objects took some finding and emulating the constellations was very tedious. The graphics were quite clear, bright and precise and there was just enough dialogue (no voice overs) needed to understand the game. The plot entailed a need to remove illusions whilst trying to recover a magic book and travelling to different places and assisting the locals in an endeavour to complete your campaign. The puzzles and mini games were intriguing and some needed some brain power, some were laborious and some were tricky. The fragmented hidden objects were sometimes quite difficult to find and needed a hint quite often, just as well the hints recharged quickly and the use of the magic glasses separated illusions from reality. As I progressed further into the game I was really enjoying the challenge and was rather sorry when it came to an end. Chapter 5 provided an extra challenge. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable game and it is money well spent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this game. I'm not a fan of Hidden object so I wanted to give the fractured object a go. That's when you find a pieces of an item before your can use. The only problems I had with this game was that the spots where you click on things was very pedantic. I would try something and when it wouldn't work go of and spend ages trying other things. Only to come back and find out I wasn't exactly in the right spot. Also I found it hard to move back to scenes. As there isnt a cursor or a path. You just sort of have to click close left of the screen or something. Overall I was impressed by this game. And am going to try some others in the series

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fragmented Object Game, You might like it. You should give this game a try. It wasn't my favorite, but it has a lot to recommend it. The Story: The Magic University has been attacked. The book of Illusions is gone. You have to save the world. You, the young female student, must travel around the world to prevent all out war and stop the bad guy. Pretty typical. The game is divided into five chapters, although the last on is a series of five 'spot the difference' puzzles. The other levels are well thought out with five areas to search. I was satisfied with the length. On each level you have to find miscellaneous pieces of things to meet your goals. There are also areas of interest that require interaction. Note: There are A LOT of pieces. And sometimes you have to leave an area, complete some task, and then return before you can find the rest of the pieces. The really cool thing about this game is that the appearance of an area is filled with illusions. You have to used several means (lastly, magic glasses) to see through the illusion to find everything. Fortunately, the hints recharge quickly. I really needed the help. Not only is finding all the pieces challenging, to me it wasn't always clear when I had to leave an area and go somewhere else before finishing in that spot. The graphics are good to very good (cartoon). The puzzles/mini games are easy IMHO, although I skipped the fishing one, because I could not figure out how to do it. The music is repetitive and does get annoying. No voice overs and the text dialogue can be clicked through. I finished playing it, but this wasn't my sort of game. I am recommending it anyway. Many people like FROGs (Fragmented Object Games) and this one really has some fun and compelling qualities. Give it a try.
