Christmas Stories: Hans Christian Andersen's Tin Soldier is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Lovely Christmas Story!!! Another hit by Elephant Games!!! The Nutcracker is back and joined by the Tin Soldier! It's another lovely game with beautiful Christmas scenes and holiday music. My favorite part is how they involve the author, once again, in the story itself. You get to help out Hans Christian Anderson, just like in "The Christmas Carol" you were able to help out Charles Dickens. Another Christmas Story game that cannot be missed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Christmas game I've played the other Christmas stories games. I liked them, but I think this one is the best. The graphics are really good and some of the cut scenes are very cool. The storyline is similar to The Nutcracker game in the same series. Some reviewers have complained that this isn't a Christmas story, other than the fact that it takes place at Christmas time and the main characters are turned into toys. One could say the same about The Nutcracker Suite. If you're looking for a game that has Santa and his elves, this is not it. If you're looking for a game with beautiful Christmas-themed graphics of snow and Christmas trees, this is your game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best of the Christmas Stories so far (I am pretty new to doing hidden object games, so take my review with a grain of salt.) I bought four Christmas Stories games this month, and this was my favorite by far. I liked the others, but I *loved* this one. The story was engaging, the puzzles were creative. I got stumped sometimes, but it wasn't so hard as to be discouraging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful! I rarely write reviews but this is deserves my time. The Nutcracker was great but this surpasses. The characters and interactives are delightful. Don't pass it up. You don't have to celebrate Christmas to enjoy this! Great fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I thought the SE was a CE The SE is on sale today, but I need to check out the CE as this game is so full as a SE I can not imagine what they did to make it worth a CE...have to check it out. Now having said that...of course I think any one would want to buy it. I admit to some frustration around knowing what to do and where to go, but the hint is forthcoming on that score. I simply do not like to use hints. I feel like I am cheating. The game is the opposite of dark. It is so bright and colorful that it does make the eyes a bit dazzled. Thus things are sometimes hard to see. (never thought I'd complain about things being too bright) There is nothing really ugly here. No oozing garbage smelly horrors. I like that very much. You dark side folks will not like this. Although I am not into Xmas at all, I like the game quite a lot because it has so many interesting things to do. There was one puzzle I took forever to get...one had to flip triangles to make them open around a center circle. I simply could not figure out how to move them...and finally I got it. Felt a bit foolish for being so obtuse. They were mostly acute triangles. I was not a big fan of the little adventure stories that you had to move through, I did not like the plain paper backdrop, I prefer the ones that have little colorful stages that you move things onto. Anyhow this was a puzzle and I am always a fan of those. The result of the game is that it is full and rich and pleasant to play with nasty little green guys to defeat. If there is a negative, it is that the progress is not obvious. Personally I like things to be logical and as I said hate to have to ask for hints. The custom setting allows for hints to be accessed quickly and that is a real plus in a game like this...I am not into being frustrated by things that make no sense. So while I will spend a long time figuring out how to make the triangles move properly, I do not want to click all over the page trying to find out what to do next. Quick restarting hints is a plus. Another real good thing about this game is that the items are labeled when you hover over them, so if you are not sure what you are looking at, it tells you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from what a wonderful christmas story for the year round this game has a custom level and interactive map. you are written to by your friend, albert, who is, once again, a nut-cracker. the wand of the rat king has been found after it was fixed and now the baron has it and has a slew on minions working for him. he takes your friend's girlfriend to make her his. he has turned everyone into toys to make this easier. you have to rescue her and turn your friends back into humans. spoiler, if you don't like rats or are bothered by them there is some in here and i can hardly stand them, but i could take it. just sayin... sequel...why not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Perfect Piece of Christmas Magic BASED ON COMPLETED CE I'm really not a fan of Fantasy games- I'm more of a murder mystery fan- but this one has changed my mind completely. The game I have played has both enthralled me and left me awaiting a sequel. It just goes to show that even the darkest of hearts can be touched by a little Christmas Magic. When I first saw the blurb, and when I began playing, I was worried. The storyline's concept sounded very similar to that of The Nutcracker, and I thought that I was just going to get a rehashed version of the original. But as I played on, I found that I couldn't be more wrong! This story definitely stands alone in its own right. And I loved that it had a touch of darkness, delivered by a perfectly executed backstory. The backstory was exciting and added that little something to stop this from being an all out cutesy, which definitely would not have sat well with me. Each segment had me wanting more, which is what a backstory should set out to do. Even with the fantastic backstory, the main game still had some great, unexpected plot developments which kept me going all the way to the end. Seriously, I've underestimated how much plot depth a fantasy story can have. All elements of fantasy were executed to perfection. There was magic, there was cuteness, there was love... and they all blended together in perfect harmony. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the cute and cuddly, but it was toned to just the right level to make my heart melt without being sickly sweet. It was fantastic and made me feel good, which is what I look for in games. But, as I said, the story wasn't all about cuteness. I thought the plot twists were great and unexpected, which is what kept me going when the backstory drew to a close. Furthermore, the twists were spaced out well, so I wasn't bombarded with cutscenes. If I had to pick something wrong with the story, I would say that maybe they should have spiced up the excitement a little bit more- there were a couple of times where I was bored- but other than that, nothing's wrong. Those worried about an inconclusive ending needn't be. The main game's ending is 100% conclusive, with no loose ends or plot holes. While the story was good, the main reason I purchased this game was for the gameplay. It was innovative, and most of all, it was the most FUN I've had in a long time! The HOS were a perfect example of this. They were jazzed up just that tiny little bit, enough to be magical, but yet not overly interactive to the point of insanity. Every single HOS I played was enjoyable and I was ecstatic every time I came across one. They also came in a considerable variety: assemble the item, standard wordlist, silhouette junkpile, even a story HOS. As I said, all were lovely, and I was a little surprised by the quantity. There were 9 HOS, even though I thought there were a lot more. This is a good number, but maybe a couple more would have been perfect. But then again, less HOS means more adventure. As great as the HOS were, I think the puzzles were even BETTER. Every single one was unique, incredibly fun, and better yet, most of them advanced the story in some way! This is perfect; I wish more games would do this, as it made me motivated to complete them. As weird as it sounds, each puzzle was better than the last. They were almost perfect; I found only the one that I didn't like. The puzzles were a delight to play and made me start to like something I have always hated. The puzzles were in a similar number to the HOS. There were 8 puzzles, and they were well spaced out. I quite liked the number as it made me appreciate them more. The adventure component was great. Due to the limited number of HOS & Puzzles, I found it quite prominent, which was fantastic. I personally think adventure is the best part of a HOPA and it's great to see the developers reflecting it. I also really liked the interaction in the game. Such examples of this were the Christmas Magic minigames (which I LOVED), the shrink potion (which was fantastic but wore off WAY too quickly) and just how you could interact with certain items in the scene, such as the waving teddy bear, or the things in Ole's toy shop. It wasn't necessary to the game, but it added that little bit of enjoyment. This, combined with additional features and overall smoothness of the game's flow, made the adventure component extremely fun. I did find the game to be slightly easy, due to its otherwise basic nature, However, I had no problem with this, as I found that it allowed me to enjoy myself more. I find that harder games take away from the fun factor significantly. So, the adventure component is almost perfect. The additional features have been done fantastically. There are two: + objects and a helper. The + objects were done well. They either required interaction or additional items, which was nice, because even features need variation. They weren't used a lot, and sort of faded out towards the end. They also didn't have an indication of when they could be used, which is what I wanted to see. The other feature was the helper – a tin soldier, Charlie- and I thought it was done quite well. Firstly, it was unobtrusive; it just sat there in its own little space and didn't dominate the game. It was used sparingly but each time it was used was great. I also liked how, sometimes, you had to interact with the helper before you could use it. This included putting Charlie in a little cart before using him, or giving him a rope to climb down on. I really liked how Charlie was involved in the story too. I think developers should aim to do this with all helpers. The difficulty levels were great. I played Advanced mode and found the hint recharged decently, and there were no sparkles ANYWHERE, not even HOS. However, there were still map indicators, which was quite disappointing. The custom difficulty was okay, with a bit to customise, but I was happy with advanced. Overall, near perfect gameplay, which was almost impossible to fault. The graphics are fantastic. They are drawn with such finesse and beautiful detail, with a vast array colours, which really showed off the Christmasy theme. I found the developers mixed their brights and darks really well. All scenes, especially cutscenes, were clear and designed beautifully. Furthermore, the character designs were probably the most brilliant I've seen. They were designed with such care and looked incredibly lifelike; so much so I could probably mistake them for real beings. The graphics in this game are a visual delight. The voice-overs are standard. I have no issue. FEATURES 4 modes of difficulty: Casual, Advanced, Hard and Custom. I played Advanced. There were no sparkles, but there were map indicators. Hint/Skip- both recharged at a decent difficulty for Advanced. Hint is helpful outside HOS and sometimes acts as teleporter. Map- The map was very helpful and set out well. It was interactive, but still showed indicators on advanced. + Objects- Good, but not used often; kind of faded out towards the end. There was no indication of when they could be used. Helper- The helper was great fun to use. I liked how you could interact with it. WHAT DO I MISS OUT ON IF I BUY THE SE? (Bonus Chapter Review at the bottom) Built-in Strategy Guide- Shows collectibles but not HOS solutions Achievements- some story based, some gameplay based Collectible puzzle pieces (36)- unlocks screensaver Collectible cat figurines (15)- There are NONE in the bonus chapter, which was disappointing. But they were very fun to find. Concept Art Wallpapers Soundtrack BONUS CHAPTER REVIEW There were 2 bonus chapters, and both were good; a nice epilogue to the main game. The stories were quite good, although the chapters were heavily gameplay based. The HOS and Puzzles continued on their stunning form, being just as fun as the main game, maybe even more so. However, I noticed I jumped from HOS to puzzle to HOS, with very little adventure in between. It was quite disappointing, in all honesty. Overall, though, good bonus chapters. I especially liked how they ended with puzzles. WHICH IS THE BETTER BUY I bought and played the CE and see it as good value. There are quite a lot of collectibles and nice achievements, with incentives for collecting them all. The 2 bonus chapters add even more fun to an already stellar game. WOULD I PLAY THIS GAME AGAIN? Absolutely yes, no questions asked. This was a top-notch game, one of the best of 2014, and one of the best I've ever played. Even though I'm a hater of all things fantasy, there is no doubt in my mind that this game deserves a place amongst the greats in the HOPA industry. This game has got me rethinking my stance on fantasy. I will definitely be returning to this in the near future. It is well and truly deserving of a 5 star rating.
