Customer Reviews
Mystery of the Ancients: The Sealed and Forgotten is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from If only all HO games were this good I was pleasantly surprised by this game, but especially impressed by the quality of the artwork, voiceovers, animation, and long game play. Love the artwork and sharp, clear, high definition images, bright, vivid colors of the interior scenes and imaginative mythical land traversed shortly into the game. Most of the mini games are easy, except for the bubble shoot and pinball game, which forced me to skip. I play with few hints, and was able to intuit most actions without help, which is always a plus IMO. The story itself is a bit farfetched, but the imagery is what drew me into this imaginary mythical kingdom. I wish all devs would take lessons from this game to provide super high quality images for this type of game play. It's not very realistic when the images are low res. I had a lot of fun with the game and enjoyed being immersed in the story. This game deserves a good look. I forgot, The game features a super cute wood elf helper, who gets the heroine out of all sorts of jams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy but fun game In the mood for a relaxing, easy game I put this on my "buy as an SE" list and glad I did! Found our detective a little irritating as he stood around doing nothing until later in the game when it was revealed his true purpose. Loved my little helper... he was quiet and performed his actions in a cute way. I felt it was a long game.. several times I thought it was the end only to discover there was more. I am not a puzzle person so was pleased to be able to actually do them without automatically skipping. HOs were great.. varied. Wishing now I had purchased the CE.. better than most. I will probably replay this game in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been waiting for a long time for a great game like this! This game has a very nice twist at the end! NOT going to tell you what it is. Very few games come out with this type of entertainment and quality. I was NOT bored for a second...it really kept my interest; and, that's saying a lot. When you have hundreds of games as I do, you get tired of the same old back and forth and lose what the game was all about in the first place....I was ready to give up my BF game club membership.because of that. This game gave me hope that their are terrific games out there; however, few and far between! I see that there are poor ratings of this game??? Well, we are all different and have likes and dislikes that are very different to one another... I can tell you this, this game gets way better after the demo. I was in shock towards the end of this game...it totally did a 160 degree turn. Everybody has their own opinion on different things...this happens to be my opinion on, "Mystery of the Ancients: The Sealed and Forgotten". Yes! I recommend this game...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It could have been better, but it's okay. As usual, I’ll leave the play-by-play to those who do it so well. If you just have to have CG graphics, put that need aside and at least play the demo. This is a graphically attractive game and, who knows, you might even like it. All of the now-expected optional controls are available, as are the various levels of game difficulty. The interactive map is most useful getting you from one place to another as game-play is, for the most part, intuitive and logical. The music is nice in general and, specific to any particular scene, appropriate. Background sounds and other effects mesh well with the action. The lip-sync is good, and the voice text, tone and inflection are likewise well done. There is a little helper, a sort of animated tree-like creature, but if you don’t want him, you have the option of not accepting him. I found him to be amusing, if for no other reason, while helpful in all of the usual ways, he’s klutz. If you have played League of Light - Wicked Harvest, his personality is very similar to the little scarecrow in that game. The HO sequences are not unique, nor are they a great challenge. Some are interactive, and you do have to think about what you’re trying to achieve to get the next item. The min-games —of which, if you’ve read any of my other reviews, you know I am not a big fan— offer a mild-to-moderate challenge, and even I found one or two to be interesting enough that I didn’t immediately reach for the skip button. Okay, now for the Ho-Hum Report: Once again, the antagonist is female which, if like me you’re a cantankerous old guy, is the reason that I only gave the game a 3-star Fun Factor. Your task is to rescue a guy from the clutches of yet another evil apparitional entity, so there’s nothing new there. Game play was a little too slow for my liking, but not so slow as to make for a boring and laborious experience. That’s pretty much all of that stuff. Overall, I rather enjoyed this not too challenging game but, as usual, my recommendation comes with the caveat that you play the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's Okay Great Graphics, relatively easy puzzles. Great for Beginning and Intermediate gamers. Experienced players would find it an amusing past time. I will probably end up adding this game to my collection eventually. I would like to see how it ends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved My Little Helper Completed it but found it to be somewhat boring. BUT my little 'helper' was sooo cute that I kept on playing just to watch him :heart: :) As the game progressed it either got better or I just got used to it. The colors and graphics/music/VO's were very good. I'm giving this one a (f) (f) (f) out of possible 5 (f) on my personal enjoy-ability scale and that is mostly for my little helper ;) Played on desktop PC running Win. 10 with a touch of lag here and there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from got real boring Like most games, the demo's appear interesting, however this game got really monotonous after awhile. Go here, pick this up, go there....good grief so very tiring. The transporter map was good but I got tired of using it constantly so just used the hint to navigate around...especially toward the end. Custom setting allows you to set the hint and skip to charge very quickly and it was definitely needed in this game. A lot of HOS, puzzles and DIALOG! Got really tired of that. Instructions were not always clear on puzzles..skipped a lot of these basically because they were tedious and I just wanted the game to get over. It did give you the option of including that annoying "little friend" which was nice. Ending was pretty pale. This may have been a good game if they had not tried to include everything...became very maudlin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Think I'll Just Seal This Game And Forget About It It's time once again to solve a Mystery of the Ancients, the supernatural case of "The Rose Petal Murderer" sounds scary right??? Detective Donovan has asked for your help solving a recent murder, that he believes to be supernatural. The victim's body was found in a room that was locked from the inside, well that's certainly supernatural. The locked room was inside a mansion, the mansion's owner has been out of town and doesn't know the victim, super, supernatural. The victim has been adorned with beautiful and aromatic pink rose petals, extremely supernatural. There seems to be no evidence left behind, even when examined using a sophisticated black light, finally a clue that could be viewed as supernatural, if you dig really deep! Moving along at a snail's pace in this investigation, agent Donovan has proven to be a large bag of luggage, because he's totally worthless in this case, but you hang on to him just in case you need that bulky luggage later. He loves barking out orders too and it's really annoying, "I'll stay here and try to open the door" says he. Whilst I'm off doing all the legwork, Donovan hasn't lifted a finger, he hasn't even turned around to face the door! Eventually, you and agent Donovan are separated (phew, I really needed a break from him) and you discover a walking Tree Stump child, At this point, the demo is winding down and it's the first actual supernatural feature in the entire game! Am I surprised? Am I speechless? After all, it's not everyday that you encounter a living, breathing, tree limb with arms, legs and eyeballs right? Apparently I have met one of these freaks of nature before, because it doesn't puzzle me in the least bit. In fact, it doesn't even puzzle Donovan when we finally reunite, he isn't the least bit surprised, he doesn't even ask about him, but then again, Donovan is a bit peculiar. Here's the good news about the little tree bud, you can choose to ditch him right off the bat, or you can hang on to him as your little helper without affecting the game's story. (after the demo, I save the little sapling once more, and I am given the opportunity to ditch him once again, maybe I should take a hint here that he's more trouble than he's worth) This guy's pretty good, he is able to go where no tree limb has gone before, he's even willing to drink several potions that nobody knows what it is or even how ancient it must be! In the Collector's Edition version, there are 25 fairly well Hidden Clovers, and 6 Collectible Character Figurines to collect as well as the usual extra's and Achievements to earn. The Hidden Object Scenes aren't bad, but most of the one's offered in the demo are of one type, Progressive, Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds. The scenes are clear though and items are recognizable. The Mini Games aren't challenging in the least bit, most could practically be done while blindfolded. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Use the Ultraviolet light to find 8 handprints. 2) return each bust to the correct place according to the clues. 3) Use the clue shown to enter the correct number on phone. 4) Select the correct sections of each multi-layered symbol. 5) Arrange books in the correct order to form a completed picture. 6) Find 4 symbols of one theme to learn more about the story. 7) Restore the murals by placing tokens correctly. 8) Flip over two cards at a time to match images. 9) Use rotation buttons to swap tiles to complete the picture. 10) Activate all 3 levers to open the doors in a "blocks" type game. 11) Interact with the mural to find 8 hidden tokens. 12) Put all elements in the correct slots. The Collector's Edition has 30 Concept Art pictures, 24 Wallpapers, 6 Music Soundtracks, 24 Fresco puzzle pieces, 8 Achievements, 6 replayable Mini Games, 6 Collectible Character Figurines, 25 Hidden Clovers, 6 replayable Videos, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mystery of the Ancients: The sealed and forgotten I thought I was purchasing a CE version... boy was I disappointed...I thought this was one of the worse games ever, I am so glad it was under five bucks.... I found it rather boring coloring was fantastic and the tree nymph but that was about it...hardly any HO's.. and the puzzles weren't challenging at all.. I would have to say great for little kids... I guess that is what I get for not playing the demo...
