Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Fun with the Witch The third installment of Echoes of the Past is excellent. The witch is back, you have to travel to various time periods, fix clocks and restore time as it should be. The graphics are excellent, the background music is not annoying, the HOS are good, the mini games are excellent, the storyline is entertaining and the ending of the main game is satisfying. The bonus chapter adds to the main story and is fun. The only downside is the limited number of locations required doing the same handful of HOS multiple times. My only complaint with the game is that some items in the HOS are really picky about where you click them. It was more noticeable in the bonus chapter than the main game. I really enjoyed this game and highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to playing the next installment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an Excellent Game Continuous challenges, a lot to do in each "Time Chapter" - never wrote a review before, but this game was the best I've played to date. Great creative work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I really liked this game. I found the puzzles to be challenging enough that I had to think about them and the game was quite long. I also really enjoyed the Extras that came with the Collector's Edition. Overall I was very, very pleased with the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely graphics and novel puzzles make this a "MUST have"! in this hidden object puzzle fantasy, a witch has cursed Orion Castle, trapping its residents in time by damaging the great clock in the castle’s central hall. this is a very thorough witch; since you have assisted the House of Orion in the past, you also are cursed, trapped in the museum that is the former Orion Castle. but the witch may be thorough, but she’s not detail-oriented: she has forgotten that you can move through time. so you once again are helping the castle’s former residents and you are seeking pieces from the great clock that the witch has hidden in time. in this game, your goal is to restore five residents of Orion Castle to their proper lives by locating five clocks and repairing them. in return, these residents provide missing pieces to the great clock so you can restore Orion Castle (and the museum). graphics: the art is absolutely gorgeous; detailed, clear and crisp. hidden objects are generally not random items, and usually are period-appropriate. some hidden objects require additional interaction before they can be collected. an interesting twist is after you've found all the hidden objects on your search list, you then "earn" a final item -- which is added to your inventory. the game includes a nice blend of hidden objects scenes with lots of fun and thought-provoking mini-games and puzzles, some of which i've not seen before. (as an added bonus, completing the CE version unlocks unlimited play for most puzzles.) the cutscenes advance the story but the acting is so silly that it’s almost comical. music and sound effects: some scores from the soundtrack were nice to listen to, others... not so nice. good voiceovers during cutscenes. storyline: a witch has cast a spell on a castle and stopped all its clocks, which has trapped the residents in time. to set everything right, you must travel through time to collect missing clock pieces to restore the great clock. generally, i am not a big fan of time travel stories, but this game made it fun. gameplay: game hints tell you when there's nothing left to do in a particular scene. there is no overclick penalty and HO scene hints recharge reasonably fast. items in your inventory are used fairly quickly. HO scenes are often visited more than once, and there's a bit of back-and-forth, which can become confusing since there's no map. there is a journal, but i didn't think it was especially helpful since it only tells you what you've already done rather than providing any interesting insights into what you are trying to accomplish. puzzles, many of which are novel, can be skipped. the game has smooth scene transitions and cursor movement without any stutters or freezes. my interaction: one hour demo, casual mode. i’ve added this game to my “must purchase” list. overall, i think this game rates almost 5 stars based on the quality of the graphics and artwork as well as the gameplay. i think this game is engaging enough -- and the puzzles especially are interesting enough -- that this game has good replay value. highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite so far! This one, made me glad I became a member. We played this one for days. Everything was top notch from the graphics to the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent series of games This is the third in the series and it definitely lives up to expectations. Each explores a variation on a theme but stands alone so you do not need to have played one to play another. However the way the theme is developed is excellent and the developers have in no way rested on their laurels. The portals to other times add interest and the relevance of the time period to the items in the HOs shows an attention to detail lacking in other games. There is a lot of detail to be had in the HO's, the use of inventory items, and the mini puzzles. The bonus game is of good length and the Strategy guide is easily accessible without leaving the game. This series is one of 3 all time favourites (the others being Dark Parables and the Awakening series).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Great Game This is the third in a series and everyone of them has been good. I purchased the CE because i got it during 1/2 price sale otherwise i would have just purchase the regular game. I enjoyed everything about this game. The HOG has a purpose not just filler. Then to figure out where to use it was great. Some easy some a little more difficult. I love the back and forth figuring out where to use things. Game was easy to follow. I played in Advanced mode had no sparkles so was a little more challenging but had no difficulties. Mini games were great.Only skipped on mini-game as it was a of a type i don't care for. Did not need the SG. The game was of good length. I found that the Bonus level you get extra is not worth the CE price if you have to buy it for the full price. Bonus was fun but would not be worth the extra price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a wonderful game! Wow! I had so much fun playing this game! It was lengthy, had a great mixture of HOS and puzzles, the graphics are outstanding, the voice overs are perfect and the storyline is great! I would definitely recommend getting the CE, because there is no map and there are lots and lots of places to explore! There is a journal that is very helpful, but without the SG it would've taken me weeks to complete this game. Having no map, many eras, areas and rooms to explore, many, many inventory items scattered throughout several eras, rooms and areas, it would've been extremely difficult for me to remember where the inventory items, that I found much later in the game, were supposed to go in the areas/eras/rooms that I discovered much earlier in the game. Plus the SG offers bonus gameplay, wallpapers and minigames, which I absolutely love. Your adventure begins with a witch that has trapped you in a museum by taking pieces of a clock and hiding them throughout the museum and throughout different eras of time. And not only are you trying to free yourself and get back home, but you also must free several different people from different time periods, restore them and their era by repairing their clocks that the witch has also damaged. The others that you help hold the items that you need to repair your clock and get back home. Some of the HOS are quite unique. Some of them you have to add objects you've collected from other HOS back into a scene. I'll try to explain it a little better; you complete a HOS, then you come across another HOS and the objects that you found in the 1st scene have to be placed into their correct spots in the next HOS you come to. I've never seen this done in a game before and I really enjoyed the change from the norm. The HOS are crisp and clear and the objects are not terribly hard to find. The puzzles in this game are challenging, but not so much that I got frustrated. They were very workable, but quite a few of them did require some serious thought. There's one in particular that you have to make stained glass and on that one I ended up checking the SG to help me out. The music and sound effects weren't at all annoying to me, so this was one of the few games that I left all the sound on. All in all, it's a long, challenging and enjoyable game. It has a nice balance of HOS and puzzles and the story is easy to follow and kept me interested throughout the game. I would certainly recommend this game to all the Big Fishers that enjoy the HOS, adventure, puzzle games! :-D HAPPY GAMING!
