Botanica: Into the Unknown is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best A really good game in terms of concept, game play, music and art. One of the better ones in this genre, right up there with Mushroom Age--which sets the standard for cleverness...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunningly beautiful! Unique story! Challenging Puzzles! The graphics were absolutely gorgeous! I felt I was in paradise. The story was different because you play as a botanist and have a portal lab, which was a great concept. Some of the puzzles where challenging in basic mode. I loved all the different, unique creatures that helped Ellie travel along her journey to find the spores. I found not having all the bells and whistles of the CE made the game really challenging and enjoyable. I had to take my time and find the objects. Some of the puzzles instructions made it a bit tricky to figure out what the puzzle was about, that's when the hint came in handy, which recharged quickly. All in all I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Into the Awesome", I say I thought this was an amazingly beautiful and stunningly fantastic game. I love the story line, you can get totally lost in the Botanica world and not want to come back out. Fantastic HOS, mini games, graphics, the music, the cut scenes, the voice overs. All 5 star worthy! Cant wait for the sequel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome game Fun, enjoyable game. Love the Awakening Series and when I saw this also came from Boom Zap, I knew I had to give it a shot. Took some getting used to not being able to jump around on the map, but after getting over it, I found it worked to my advantage. Really enjoyed having the botanical science aspect to it and it was good having the extra mini games the botanist kit provided. Excellent game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunningly Beautiful and Wonderfully fun game I played this months ago and found myself on Boomzap's website tonight to see if there will be a 3rd one coming out. Sadly, they have no plans for a sequel at this time. I thoroughly enjoyed playing both of the Botanica games and recommend them both. The story is engaging and the characters remind me of people I know - very realistic. My favorite part was the lush beauty of the game (mostly forest environment). Oh well, I can always play them again and again. They were quite fun for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How to make HOS fun again... I get a bit fed up with HOS scenes. You go through them in these games because you need to. But Zap Boom knows how to make them fun First make them beautiful to look at. Second make them interactive so that you have to dig for it, or build it. I breezed through the scenes and never resented them at all. The storyline moves easily, there is little backtracking, and the puzzles are not to hard and not too easy.. And Botanica is such a beautiful place...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Botanica: Into the Unknown SE I loved the recent release of Botanica: Earthbound so much that I had to give the original game a try and I love this game too! Dr. Wright was a renowned scientist, by this I mean he had quite a reputation for his beliefs of a strange "other" world. His students and colleagues never took him seriously and referred to him as crazy Dr. Wright. His daughter Ellie loved to listen to his theories as a young girl and is now a scientist herself, a Botanist. She was exploring a cave with strange but beautiful flora and managed to open a portal, the same portal that her father entered, never to return! Now you will investigate and explore this strange but beautiful planet and discover your fathers diary. Is he still alive? Is he still in Botanica or has he been captured by Botanicas leader, Queen Kassandra who forbids any talk of Earth? I really like the originality of this story! In the Collectors Edition there is an available bonus game where you can explore more of Botanica as a different character. It also has Wallpapers, Cutscenes, Soundtracks, Concept Art and of course a built in Strategy Guide. There are also achievements to earn and hidden ladybugs to collect. Personally I think this is a better value unless you just gotta look for hidden ladybugs! Ellie has brought along her botany kit which is actually a mini game where you examine flowers and separate the petals in different categories such as spotted petals, or striped petals etc. The mini games are fairly easy such as clicking on pollen spores in the correct order by process of elimination. I liked the game that required you to turn an outer, inner and center disc until each pie shape had two different colors that when mixed together would have the matching color as indicated on each pie shape such as yellow and blue would be the correct colors for the green pie shape. The hidden object scenes are far and few between, but worth the wait, because every item requires an interaction of some kind like finding a pencil sharpener and sharpening a pencil in order to complete a sketch of the sun. This is a great game, and I realize that it's an older game when you see the differences of the graphics alone, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than your average HOG This is an puzzle adventure with hidden object scenes. Even they are not straight forward, many items need constructing or modifying before you can collect them, others are hidden behind doors (often with handles to be found first!) or other items. Over all a thoroughly enjoyable game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rocky relationship beginnings... Boomzap and I had a bit of a rough beginning to our relationship in the form of me playing the first two Awakening games and feeling like my intelligence was being insulted because of the ease of the puzzles. I also wasn't hooked by Awakening's storyline. When I saw the new Botanica: Earthbound ads recently, I was intrigued and looked into getting it, at which point I realized it was a continuation of the previous game (this one#. Then I saw it was Boomzap, and I hesitated. Everyone else seems to love Boomzap, and by all rights I should too because they are more puzzle-heavy and less HOS-heavy - just my style! But I also crave at least some challenge and an engaging storyline, which my previous exposures to this developer did not deliver #for me#. But, as you can tell by my rating, Botanica changed my mind! This was a refreshingly fun game with awesome music, challenging but totally doable puzzles and HOS #and btw, yes the instructions weren't in your face, but a quick click on the "eye" would give you instructions, at least in the middle hardness level...yes, some of them took some thought, but they were all logical, never random!# I loved the botany kit. This never felt too science-heavy, just fun science-y. Graphics were beaut *except* for the characters. I agree that they were way too cartoonish - particularly the main character #the others were just okay#, but even that didn't detract from it enough to drop my rating because of the good story and creative, engaging gameplay. I thought the events that a couple of people called childish to be really creative and quirky, for the fun-loving in all of us. This is coming from someone who felt that Awakening felt pretty childish. #Sorry for all the comparisons, but it can be a bit unhelpful for me to see everyone saying that this is great "just like all of the others from this developer" when it's a developer I have had mixed experiences with. Obviously that's my personal bent, but I like hearing from people who were unexpectedly won over by a game, too, which is why I'm writing this. :# # Try the trial. I did, and it was good enough to buy, and I only became more grateful of the decision as I continued, partly because the puzzles increased somewhat in challenge level #in a good way#. Now I'm just trying to force myself to wait at least a few days before getting the next Botanica #this time, I'll probably get the CE!#
