Echoes of the Past: The Kingdom of Despair Collector's Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 85.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My all time favorite I found this game to be just the right level of difficulty for me. I am a die hard HO player and not since Ravenhurst have I enjoyed a game so much. My skill level and knowledge of HOs has matured a bit so I usually get bored or impatient with all the repetition that's out there. I found this game to be refreshing. Plenty of mini games but not a lot of HOs. But that was ok. I enjoyed the change up. Think I will check out the rest of the series to see if it holds up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great 'Echoes of the Past ' game i loved this game, so glad I got the CE version. I have played all the games in this series., but I like this the one the best so far. lots and lots of mini game puzzles - which are not so hard that your pulling your hair out, but there are definitely some scratch you head ones . The map is very useful for getting back and forth quickly. The Ho's are not boring. I would definitely recommend this game to Puzzle fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun, never boring. I had a great time with this game. I like a fast, relaxing game that doesn't have too many obscure hidden object scenes. The puzzles were fun but not too challenging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, wow, wow! A perfect game! Great length, fun story, great bonus chapter, amazing puzzles. I play games for the puzzles, and this one has plenty and some quite hard, which I love. This game is up there with my favourites, Ravenhearst series and 13th Skull. If you like puzzles, you`ll love this one. Applause for Orneon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to the Echoes series! Really enjoyed this one! The main game is long and full of things to do. The graphics and VOs are quite good and the storyline is engaging, although the witch could have made a few more appearances - aside from her initial threats and the spells she casts on the NPCs, she's not a particularly active opponent. The HOS weren't that difficult, but I enjoyed the variations - sometimes finding unique objects, sometimes placing objects into a scene, sometimes collecting groups of objects to use elsewhere, etc. I also liked that some objects and tasks carry over between chapters, which adds a little extra challenge. The interactive map cuts down on travel time, but with the hub-style layout, there's not that much running around anyway. The puzzles are also good - most take a few minutes to figure out and only one or two were tedious enough to skip. The only things I wasn't too thrilled about were the inventory at the top of the screen instead of the bottom and the slowness when new items are found, both of which have been mentioned by other reviewers. These aren't game-killers by any means, but details that I wish Orneon would adjust in the next installment. CE vs SE - The CE contains free-play variations of some of the in-game puzzles, some collectables/achievements, and a bonus chapter that is completely unrelated to the main story. These are all decent additions, but the SE alone is an excellent game and probably the better value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Wonderful Dark Adventure! I love adventure games, and I am always looking for something "different"- Many of these games have similar themes: Fantasy, princesses, witches, magic, etc. While this story does have a yet another evil witch, I found the storyline to be a bit more interesting than the typical "bad witch is jealous of beautiful maiden who needs to be rescued" theme. The artwork and graphical detail is extrodinary and unique. It has a darker edge. No rainbows and unicorns here! Instead meet a drunken teddy bear monster, a little girl who gets turned into a reptile, and it gets even better with the bonus level! This game also had the perfect level of challenge for me, not too hard and not too easy. There are lots of mini-games, some simple and others that can take some time. One of the really great things about this game is that hidden-objects only accounts for many 25% of the mini-games. There is a diverse amount of puzzles. That for me was a plus as well. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in the series so far! This is a great game! I have played all the ones in this series, and they just keep getting better. The visuals and sound are great, and the method for moving between the five main game areas is wonderful. As this is the CE, I should mention that the extra segment is very good...avoid it if skeletons and bugs give you nightmares though!! There are also 15 mini games to play in the CE extras area, plus the usual add ons. I think it is worth the CE price, but would play well in the Standard version too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game! Bought the full version. Lovely, dark and scary/creepy art. Dialog is quite funny. Puzzles and such are challenging, but not impossible. Loved it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best game ever for puzzles I play hundreds of bfg games and this one by far is the best for adventure games, lots of puzzles lots and lots of puzzles, hog are varied so nice change. its long and makes sense when you look for things not disjointed like so many of these kind of games..... I have played 3 of the 5 echo games and am going to play the other two but so far this is the best.... I wish other games would take a page from this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great Game Another super offering in the "Echoes of The Past" series. Each one is better than the last. (Don't know how they do it.) I had no trouble with this game. Great storyline, graphics, music and gameplay. Many of the puzzles were a little too hard for me, but I gave them my best shot before giving up! And some of the puzzles were incredibly inventive. Thought the C.E. was well worth the extra money.
