Witches' Legacy: Awakening Darkness Collector's Edition is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Riddance to the Clumsy Imp This was an instant purchase for me: the first Witches Legacy without the ugly imp! We have a ferret instead which constantly moans and sighs, but else is droll and skittishly playful. It even knows how one skates on ice - with a snowboard! That ferret is clearly an upgrade. We play as scientist Jack Sanders - and at first it feels a bit odd. Not because I'm a woman, but because I think that a man would be less eager and probably also less gifted to stroll through a fairy-tale world and tinker with mushrooms, delicate flowers and children's toys. Jack is also a bit vain and gazes often into mirrors. But the lucky guy has two capable, female companions: Lynn's daughter Annabel and the bewitched girl Bertha, currently a ferret, help him with the magical bits and parts. I love how we can click on everything - at least in the first scenes. The little violets wink coquettishly, glassy pollen trickle from strange plants, lotus flowers croak like frogs. Be sure to tickle the fish in the aquarium BEFORE you put the cage into the water ... and don't forget to try the hellish sweets on the table ;) The whole environment is ever so entertaining, so full of little surprises and lovingly created details: A tree branch displays all four seasons together, one twig in blossom, one bears fruit, another is covered in ice. A little mouse eats Hypericum and falls asleep, but only after it yawned quite adorably. We slip into flowers, walk over clouds, dive into the subconscious mind of an old turtle, embark in a magically enlarged leaf; we encounter animated things and memories from countless fairy tales. Once, we are even downsized to the size of a gnome and find ourself on a breakfast table beside a giant fork. This game is like a lucky bag, replete with pixies' dreams and Alice's Wonderland, spiced with all sorts of bizarre fruits and flowers, thistles, dragonfruits, lychees, physalis, every single one true to detail. I was thrilled to recognize a rare kind of wild onion which I happen to cultivate in my garden. EleFun really has the knack with plants. The adventure is also well seasoned with humor. I had quite a laughing fit about that lanky, unhelpful watchmaker. Look at him, when he smokes the pipe of truth and rolls his eyes ... as if he had just inhaled the biggest spliff of his life. I was less impressed by the three witches. They wear identical, black pointed hats of the kind that are sold for Halloween. Represented by puppets or silhouettes, they look like spineless fashion mannequins, far too young to know anything. They have no personality and go by the names Bella, Hella and Della. Good gracious! The names did it. Somebody must have puffed one pipe of truth too many :D Challenge is alas non-existent, mini games are child's play. Well, not actually boring. We encounter the same old puzzles, ok., but they come in new guises and are witty to play again. At the same time, the hidden object scenes are a sheer joy: stunningly beautiful still lifes of glamorous luminosity, most of them multi-step. That is, we find for instance eight birds and eight flowers before a list opens. Or we insert four shapes which open the items list, then four compartments with parts for the final object unlock. HOPs are varied in everything, also theme-related and well integrated into the game flow. And not least supported by gorgeous music --- which puts a spell on you. Or at any rate on me, since I tend to dawdle with the last item, just to prolong the listening.e listening. Forget Cassandra - Alexey Arkhipov is the true wizard of this game. His tracks are pure magic: imaginative, mysterious, and the best remedy against a bad temper. One tune gives me at times goosebumps on my eardrums. This composer is not even afraid to play with beats and rhythm. When did you feel the last time the urge to leap up from your chair and to dance to game music? EXTRAS: The usual wall papers, pseudo achievements and four simple puzzles which are unlocked when you collected all 36 puzzle pieces. The HOPs and mini games can not be played again; although I think this feature should be standard by now. Hence, the CE is not quite the best bargain you can get for your money. It might be worth it though for the 11 soundtracks. The BONUS CHAPTER plays in 10 scenes and lasted for me one hour and 15 minutes. It's a sequel, not necessary for a concluding end and actually just another story with the same people involved. But there are 6 new locations to discover, and I even had the impression, that one or two music tracks are exclusively heard in the bonus. I counted 9 HOPs and 9 puzzles; the collecting of collectibles continues. We play again as Jack, and again little sister Nikki is in trouble. She and Annabel are at a music festival and have been attacked by raging instruments and loudspeakers. Bertha, the girl from the 18. century, hangs still around, still wears her antique gown, however is now in possession of a cell phone. How convenient! It turns out that Cassandra's feral cat escaped and wreaks magical havoc, thus we must send the frenzied beast back to the other world. The task leads us through three magical portals and is enlivened with further variegated, enchanted things and characters; we even meet the Ghost of Oblivion from the main chapter again. An neat sequel, prolongs the fun for an hour. I was not so convinced of the cartoonish cat. As a cat lover also a trifle insulted by its vilification - but at least I had not to hurt it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game so far I bought this one because I have all the others, was not to thrilled about the play in the demo, I must have had a bad day, because am I glad I bought it, I am simply loving every minute of it. It is bright, colourful, the gameplay is great, lots of little humorous things. And above all this, it is a very long game. I love everything about this one and highly recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't think I'd find a series to equal Dark Parables! Occasionally there is a series which stands head and shoulders above most, and Witch's Legacy has become my new Top of the list. There is a lot of to-ing and fro-ing to collect items and use them so the map, which shows where actions are available and transports you there, is a must for me; it means I can play really relaxed and just enjoy the artwork and the unfolding story. The minigames are not challenging, they just make you think enough, and are varied and original enough, to give the whole game experience another layer. I wish A Happy New Year to all at EleFun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sequel of an outstanding series Elefun has produced an excellent sequel of one of my favourite series. Recently I got disappointed in sequels of other series, but this one is excellent in quality, fun, story line, new inventions in HOP. The puzzels could slightly be more challenging, but alas. I definately recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New "Age" Of Darkness Witches' Legacy has turned the page, giving us a new chapter and a whole new adventure. The devs have done a wonderful job morphing the saga of Lynn Watson into a completely new storyline, without straying too far from the original plot. Jack has just arrived at his mom's house for dinner, only to find utter chaos. Her exotic plants have become somewhat intimidating, with big eyes and even bigger teeth, poor mom has been cursed with an aging spell (me too!) and little sister Nikki has been stolen by Cassandra the witch! Cassandra has no use for you, so you too receive the curse that causes your body to rapidly deteriorate until you're merely dust in the wind! You must find the strength to defeat this darkness before your frail aging body can no longer function...... I really appreciate the fact that the features from the previous games have remained, there are 36 Collectible Puzzle Pieces that will form four different jigsaw puzzles that can be set as screensavers, and there are 34 Morphing objects to discover as well. I also enjoyed how the story intertwined with the original story, linking them together flawlessly. The graphics aren't over the top fantastic, but, they are decent, and the cinematics are very well done. Since the Imp (once family dog) belongs to Lynn, we get Bertha the ferret (once human) to help us out during the adventure, and there are several Achievements to earn as well. The Hidden Object Scenes are quite entertaining, there are several "zoom zone" puzzles, typical in this series where you are tasked with finding six fragments, items, or six symbols needed in the zoom zone, by searching the scene outside of the zoom. The HOP's are presented in several stages, first you may need to find four items that match the shapes shown, which will open up an interactive list, and when each list section has been found there will be fragments given to assemble, almost every section will give you bits and pieces of the story's background. You can also opt for a game of Mahjong if you're not into Hidden Object Puzzles. The Mini Games were a bit of a disappointment for me because they all seem way to easy with no complexity at all, but they aren't bad puzzles, they're just easy puzzles to solve. I've listed brief descriptions on some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Place gears to form a continuous chain reaction, then select the gears in the correct order lit as demonstrated. 2) Melt skull tokens using amber tokens with directional arrows. 3) Place square tiles correctly to form two separate pictures. This Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 4 Screensavers, 9 Concept Art pictures, 3 Music Soundtracks, 12 Achievements, 36 Hidden Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces, 4 Jigsaw Puzzles, 34 Morphing Objects, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different but in an interesting way... I won't go into all of the details of the game as others are far better at it than I am, but let me just say that while this may contain a few elements of past "episodes", it's nothing like the others. There are odd creatures & the lands look like something out of Alice in Wonderland. I agree with others that Bertha made no real contribution to the game nor was she nearly as cute as the imp was. Plus her voice was on the off-key-high-pitched-annoying side. Some of the games were waaay too easy, even for a kindergardner, but I'd caution allowing young kids to play this game as there are many dark elements. It would have been better, I think, if the mood of the game was a little lighter & not so dark & moody. I loved the music & thought its odd melodies fit perfectly with the oddness of the game. I don't care for the characters looking like real people in an animated game. That's my biggest complaint with this or any other game that does that. Overall, I found this to be an enjoyable game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprise! Good game, witches and all. I have grown weary of witches, dragons, fairies, and all the rest I long for a good hard boiled detective mystery! But this game has turned out to be a very good game for the money. Great graphics! Loved looking at all the varying scenes that kept me captivated, and throw in morphing objects, puzzles to work, and a variety of interactive HOS, and I'm hooked!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than most other in this series I have not been much of a fan of the Witches 'Legacy series. There was too much repetitiveness as the saga continued. Furthermore I found the HOPA puzzles and the HO scenes way to mundane. So seeing Awakening Darkness introduced left me somewhat underwhelmed. To my surprise, this edition is remarkably good. The story line offers nothing novel. A wicked witch Cassandra has stolen a magical amulet from her sister witches and a young woman has been transported into a fantasy realm while her mother has been aged considerably by Cassandra. It is apparent this young lady has latent powers that the sinister witch either wants for herself or is bent on preventing these powers to manifest themselves into something that will neutralize Cassandra. Brother Jack follows his sister into the alternate world to rescue the sister. He encounters a good witch named Bertha who has been transformed into a ferret by the evil one. Of course Bertha will be Jack's helper when the situation requires something small and agile to acquire needed items. The game includes some interesting and interactive HO scenes. Most of the puzzles are routine although I did like one where a magical fireball absorbs bad energy as long as the fireball does not pass thru its growing centipede like body. Jack meets 2 other good witches during the demo. One is a woman drained of much of her power while a younger lady accompanies Jack on the quest until such time that she is abducted herself within a portal as the demo ends. There are morphs in each section of the game and also collectible jigsaw pieces which can be assembled into a finished product after all are obtained. While I enjoyed this game a lot, it's not one that I'll purchase since it's so very similar to others I already have. However I do give the game a rather large thumbs up as it is well crafted and entertains much more than some of the recent offerings. Perhaps when a free game code is burning in my pocket, I might consider taking Awakening Darkness on. For players who cannot get enough of witch games and/or games set in a purely fantasy world, this WL installment does fit the bill. As an aside, this being 12/24, Happy Holidays to all gamers and the folks at BFG who provide us with so much entertainment. Some of us write so many reviews that I feel that I have gotten to know ( at least a bit ) some of my colleagues in a good although less than personal manner. Good health to you all !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing CE... I haven't written a review for ages as so many CEs of late have been hum drum to say the least. These devs don't release many games, but when they do they are always quality. This game has amazing graphics, some humour, various mode choices (including custom), puzzle piece collectables in each scene, and morphing objects. Puzzle pieces and morphing items appear in each new scene. Not always easy to find either. Level of challenge is good, plus there's a jump to map, excellent (most of the time) hint system, and interesting puzzles. Puzzles are quite challenging, interesting and well put together. Had to refer to SG once (so far - I'm 4 hours into the game), and managed to move on having done so. Often the HOPs in adventure HOGs are tiresome, repetitive and even boring in many games, but in this CE they are intuitive, different, fun and for a change I actually look forwards to them. Can't recommend this game highly enough...a lot of work has gone into it. The music is in keeping, and so well done are the VOs that I can't actually decide if the human characters are real or animations! A very large d/l (almost 2GB), but there's more gameplay than cut scenes. There are a lot of cut scenes, but add to the game and don't go on forever. You can skip some, and press continue for most. I don't usually bother with the storyline as many are so droll (and like bad B movies of yesteryear), but am enjoying the story. A bit like a pantomime story of naughty witches. A very welcome Christmas eve CE: I've finished all my shopping and pre-Christmas chores so this game brightened my day!
