Customer Reviews
Saga of the Nine Worlds: The Four Stags is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What's With the Bad Reviews? I thought this was a great game, and I've played a ton of them. The graphics are outstanding, voiceovers are very good, and we aren't inundated with hidden object scenes. Puzzles could have been a little more challenging but I still enjoyed them. I certainly don't understand the bad reviews at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the few series that merits a CE purchase This is an exciting, innovative series based on Norse mythology. The graphics are crisp, clear, and beautifully done. The music is haunting and thematically appropriate, and there were no technical issues when downloading or playing. Game-play is interactive and immersive. Hidden object scenes are somewhat different and unique at times. The puzzles are playable, even for a puzzle hater like me. This game is all about the story and the story remains fairly true to the subject matter. The few small variances didn't detract from my enjoyment, and I'm a Norse mythology enthusiast. Google Yggdrasil and the White Stags for information on how the stags groom the tree and any other questions related to the mythology in the game. The Four Stags deserves a CE purchase, as does the previous game in the series. I finished the SE demo and decided to purchase the CE version, like another reviewer did. This has only happened a few times in the years I've been with BF, with the Vermillion Watch series, The Dead Reckoning series, Paranormal Pursuit, and the new Dark City series. Quality construction, imaginative story-telling, and attention to detail will get my money every time. That's why I purchase so few games anymore. Most of the offerings are rehashed versions of the same, tired ghost/ghoul/witch/demon stories that have been done to death. Fortunately, this game soars above the dross and is worth my time and money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE SEQUEL IS BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL GAME When Saga of the Nine Worlds the Gathering was released I was excited to see a new series; however that hope quickly dwindled as I got into the actual game. So when I saw the beta for The Four Stags I asked myself why this developer even bothered to continue the series when the first game was so bad. Fortunately, the developer did continue with game two in the series, The Four Stags, which, IMHO, is so much better than the first game. Yes, once again the game starts off slowly with quite a few mundane tasks to complete before it picks up momentum but it is worth slogging through all of those tasks because once the game gets going it is very, very good. It’s funny because when I tried the beta for the game I wasn’t sure about it since I didn’t care for the first game, but now playing the full game of The Four Stags I am finding that I love it. So what changed? For one thing in the HOP scenes the items are so much easier to find than they were in The Gathering. The items are still well hidden but they are a bit larger and not so monotone which makes them a bit more visible. Although the first HOP scene is covered in old and dusty cobwebs I could still spot the items. Subsequent scenes are even better with more color, which is a great step up from The Gathering. I am not going to jump into the storyline in this review because others have already done that but I will say that I like this storyline much better than the one in the initial game. The graphics, at least to me, also seem much better and I love the beautiful fantasy realms created by EIPIX. I’ve already mentioned that I think the HOPS are so much better in this game, and even though the puzzles seem easy I know that there will be tougher puzzles ahead. I’m hopeful that as the game progresses the difficulty of the puzzles will as well, which is generally the case in most games. I am hoping that I might run into a couple of super-puzzles later in the game. I am sure that many gamers will enjoy this game because it seems to be more of an adventure, quest type game than my favored HOPA type. Even though this game may not have as many HOPS or puzzles, I am thankful that this game is so much better than I anticipated. Even though this game is one that I really enjoy, as always, I suggest that you try the demo to see if Saga of the Nine Worlds The Four Stags is a game you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Epic Based on the completed game: I actually purchased the CE version of this game, & as noted in that review, this is only the second time I've rated a game 5 stars across the board in all categories. The HOPs, mini-games, graphics, & gameplay are all excellent in my opinion, & I especially liked that the devs underscored the adventure aspect, producing in the process a game that really requires the player to pay attention to everything. That might sound like work :D, but for me, at least, what it actually was, was highly immersive fun; the challenge level was sufficient to be rewarding, w/o being aggravating, because so long as you pay attention, gameplay is quite intuitive. My play time was roughly 4.5-5 hours for the CE version, so sans collectibles & morphs, figure 4+ hours. This is truly one of the most enjoyable HOPA games I've played, & so I highly recommend doing the demo, & seeing what you think. Happy gaming, all. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED THE ADVENTURE This is a good adventure game with lots to do. There are a variety of mini-games which I loved. To save the nine worlds you must travel through them and save the stags. You get to kill the dragon at the end.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SAGA OF THE NINE WORLDS GOES FROM CE TO SE IN LESS THAN A MONTH? I liked the first Saga of the Nine Worlds enough to be excited for this sequel, but I was concerned with the slow-paced storyline which may explain why this SE was released so soon. At first, The Four Stags seems to suffer from this same problem. The beginning of the game was sluggish, with an overwhelming amount of recaps from the first game. However, once the game picks up its speed, it is simply wonderful. The game has you playing as four different characters, as each member of the Odin’s army splits up to find each of the four stags. The landscapes of the game are always changing and so is the feel of the game, which makes this sequel all the more interesting. Saga of the Nine Worlds: The Four Stags is also one of Eipix’s best-looking games. The visuals are spectacular; the details of the artwork are mind-blowing and the fantasy special effects are extravagant and glorious. The audio aspect of the game is also worth mentioning. The background music remains quite subtle most of the time, but the variety is definitely appreciated and they do accompany the scene extremely well. The highlight here are the voice-overs, which are exceptional. They perfectly portray the personality of their respective characters, while not being over-the-top or unpleasant. If there is one thing that Saga of the Nine Worlds: The Four Stags can improve upon, it is the challenge level. Unlike most Eipix games, the gameplay here is actually quite complex, thanks to the insane number of tasks to do in each scene. Rather, the hidden object scenes and the puzzles are the weaker aspects. The hidden object scenes do not break any new grounds and the puzzles are fairly easy despite their promising concepts. Still, there is no denying that the puzzles are still very entertaining and well-integrated into the storyline. Surprisingly, Saga of the Nine Worlds: The Four Stags is also a long game. The game took me over four and a half hours to complete on the easiest difficulty setting, and the bonus chapter took just over another hour or so. I played the Collector’s Edition which comes with a plethora of perks; a strategy guide, wallpapers, characters, concept art, videos, soundtracks, re-playable mini-games, replayable hidden object scenes, a souvenir room, achievements, collectibles, and morphing objects. If I knew this would be offered in the SE version so soon I wouldn't have purchased the CE; I would have used a free game coupon. Cheers!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from WAKE ME UP WHEN IT'S OVER! This game has so much wasted potential! This is yet another Eipix game that takes a complete nosedive after the demo. I shouldn't have to struggle through the tasks as it progresses, and by struggle, I mean totally bored kind of struggle, not a difficult struggle! This new series has such a fantastic storyline, but it's too uninteresting of a climb to get there. The tasks are boring and repetitive, the HOP's are mediocre and there are too few puzzles to hold my interest after the demo. In all fairness, it could be the character I chose, because like the first Saga game, you choose which character to follow, in which order, but eventually, this chapter has to be addressed by everyone, to progress. I also found the graphics to be somewhat blurry at times, and they are all the same brown hues, not vibrantly colored as I would expect from this type of HOPA game. Eipix poured their heart and soul into their last Myths of the World game, Behind the Veil, which didn't work in a "scary" game. In my opinion, if they had presented this game with those same gorgeous graphics, it would have worked in this genre, and it would have helped to hold one's interest. Fellow reviewers Granny_Gruff and Majestyx12 were spot on, in their take on this game, it's painfully boring. Here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version if either is right for you: A Shield Maiden's job is never done it seems, and Odin has requested your services once again. Why Odin needs help in the first place, baffles me, after all, he's a god, all he needs to do is wave a magic wand, or staff or whatever gods do. This guy has quite the resume, he's associated with healing and death, (aren't those polar opposites? if he can heal why would there be death?) royalty, the gallows, knowledge, (cuts out the need for a seer) battle, (cuts out the need for a shield maiden) sorcery, poetry (cuts out the need for a skald) and even frenzy. He is frequently accompanied by Geri and Freki the wolves, and his ravens, Huginn and Muninn, who bring him vital information from all of Midgard, nothing gets past this dude! I guess even gods as powerful as Odin can use a little help now and then, but my team doesn't seem to be able to function very well without me. First things first, the worthless Skald tells me to fetch him some music so he can play us all a little ditty whilst everyone else uses their skills to battle some evil wolves. Now keep in mind he's standing two feet from it! What-evs, now the Seer has asked me to whip up his "special" potion, I'm secretively hoping he'll use it on the Skald, and he too is a mere two feet from his wants and needs! Moving right along, the Huntress asks me to fetch her a bow-n because Odin god only knows it would be beneath her to fetch it herself! By now I'm totes exhausted, think I'll pull up a chair next to the Skald and listen to some tunes. After the wolves go poof into oblivion, each of us go our separate ways, behind portal numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 in search of the giant missing Stags who somehow get all the credit for preserving the balance of the Nine Worlds, by eating the limbs off of the Tree of Life. Does this even remotely make sense? Supposedly Bambi's dad's "groom" the tree that's constantly growing, which keeps the ever-growing tree balanced, got it. I realize that these guys are super mondo in size, but at some point they are going to need a boost up or at least a ladder, to reach the branches that are bound to be higher and higher as the tree grows, did I miss something? Off we all go, choose whomever you want to shadow, personally, I'm going with the Huntress, it just seems like a really bad idea to send a Hunter alone to find a deer, and I'm bettin' he won't make it back alive if I don't! In the Collector's Edition version, Eipix has finally decided to offer a different kind of collectible, sort of. They are still the same collectible, but they are different in each world you visit, so kudos to Eipix, baby steps guys, baby steps. I wasn't a huge fan of the first game in this series because it was rather boring, but this one is slightly less boring. The videos are very realistic with excellent graphics, but the graphics in the game itself tend to be a bit cartoonish at times, especially in close ups, .... baby steps. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, with Interactive List finds, Silhouetted Shape finds and Multiples of Keywords on several sketched pictures during background stories. Each HOP in the CE version has a Morphing Object to find, surprise, we're back to crawling! Could we PLEASE have morphing Objects in each scene NOT in the HOP's??? (I said please) The Mini Games are fairly easy, but I did find them entertaining, which is all I really care about, they can be super easy or super hard, as long as they are fun. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Determine the correct sequence of your companions attack by selecting their portrait in the correct order. 2) Swap the flowers so that they are connected to the correct rune based on the clue, by following the vines. 3) Find matching pairs of roots. 4) Find matching pairs of stones. 5) Slide bars into the holes by manipulating the bars to free them. 6) Use the riddle clues to determine which illustration to move the handle to, using directional arrows. 7) Select the buttons on the panel in the correct order by following the lines to the next symbol as shown on the clue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This Game May Be Your Cup Of Tea, But Its Not For Me! In this new chapter of the Saga, four Stags groom the base of the Tree of Life. (That alone calls for some explanation, which we won't get!) An unknown villain has taken the Stags away from the Tree of Life. You and your group of heroes from the first game in the series will have to find the Stags across the nine worlds and return them to the base of the Tree. You will play as whichever of the heroes was sent to the world you currently find yourself visiting. Good stuff: Several of the HOPs were very like the opening of the first game in the series; so much so, I had to check the game title. The puzzles looked rustic, but familiar. The artwork was often dazzling in it's complexity and beauty. Bad stuff: I am still confused by the running use of rune signs and stylized letters. If your use of Norse Mythology is from left field, does this give your imagination validity? The story moved glacially slowly, when it did move, which was seldom. If we had some vague idea - beyond that someone is trying to destroy the Nine Worlds - we might care what is going on. Unfortunately, the stark idea that I have to save the world again is not particularly attractive. I pass. Please try the demo and make your own choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE!!!!! AND I PLAY ALOT OF HOGS!!! No joke, I adore HOGS. Between my monthly membership, and purchasing every new hog that comes out on big fish, I know I spend easily over a hundred bucks a month. Now, I will also tell you that I have NEVER written a bad review for a single hog on this site. This game is awful! Nothing makes sense, and it is so frustrating....I even was one of the beta testers. I was so excited for this game. Just dont waste your money or credit to purchase. I normally purchase collector editions. Thank you sweet baby jesus! I just used a credit and got this one.Do not purchase this one, you WILL thank me!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Most Frustrating game Liked the storyline. This game in no way was fun. Pain in the behind. Pull your hair out game. Very confusing. It shouldn't even be in the hop section.
