Customer Reviews
Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy relaxing game with beautiful scenery and graphics! I really, really enjoyed this game! I played it from start to finish without stopping except for dinner. It's not an overly long game, it took me maybe 4.5 hours to play but I do tend to skip mini-games so maybe a little longer for others. I thought it was a fun, interesting and beautiful game with a storyline that stays throughout the game. It was on the easy relaxing side which was just perfect for the mood I was in this weekend. I love that you make a lot of potions throughout and the mini-game you play to get each potion was fun too. I played most of the mini-games in this game and that's rare for me but I found the majority to be fun and doable! I love Artifex Mundi and they did not disappoint here. Really wish we would get more games from this game designer, they are always top notch in my opinion. If you are looking for a fun, beautiful looking game that's slightly on the easy and intuitive side this is the game for you! I highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from MAGIC POTIONS I disagree with some of the other reviewers. It was fun to use the Alchemy and develop potions to move the story along. The match 3 part of this did get tiresome, but it was only one part of the game. The hidden objects and mini-games were good. I thought the graphics were fine. It was also a long SE game with a "strategy guide" which went to the walk-throughs if you needed help.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ~~ARTIFEX MUNDI'S SEQUEL LEFT ME WANTING MORE~~ The majority of blockbuster games these days are fast-paced, frenetic affairs that don’t give you a second to breath or think. That’s why it’s occasionally nice to find a more relaxing experience to settle down with, and that’s where the kind of Hidden Object puzzle games, published by Artifex Mundi, come into their own. Having already delved into the world of alchemy with Lost Grimoires: Stolen Kingdom, one must wonder if Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery is more of the same, just with a different narrative. Is that how it’s turned out, or have some fresh ideas been brought in to make for a better sequel? A few years before the story of Lost Grimoires 2 begins, an evil witch named Drosera turned on her own people and kicked off a brutal war, which eventually saw her captured inside of a magical Chasm Mirror forevermore. Or so they thought. When the King at the time falls ill, she vows to return and through some wicked plot, manages to set the wheels in motion after tricking the young Prince, Fern. Your role is as the personal medic to Prince Fern and so when he gets kidnapped as part of the devious plan on the eve of his coronation, you must do everything in your power to get him back. Like its predecessor, the Hidden Object games have received a freshening up, with them no longer being simply a list of items to find. Now, there are times where shapes are presented to you matching certain items within the scenery and once you’ve found those, it’ll then present a list of words regarding other things to find. You’d be surprised how much of a decent change, although minor, it is to have that little bit of variety. There aren’t as many Hidden Object scenes as usual, with a huge focus on the mini-games instead. From a visual standpoint, the magical world beyond the mirror and the kingdom in which Prince Fern resides are equally drawn to a high standard. The coloring is luxurious and vibrant, giving real character to the many areas featured. I’m not awfully keen on the facial animations, as they just look odd in truth, with less care and attention given to the faces. Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery is a magical adventure featuring beautiful hand drawn locations to traverse through and a smattering of clever puzzle ideas to keep the mind ticking over, without ever causing frustration. While I appreciate the Hidden Object variation taking my enjoyment levels up a notch, it’s clear that lessons haven’t been learned in storytelling as it’s nothing overly enthralling, the voiceovers aren’t truly convincing and the overall experience is just too short with a runtime of around 3 hours of gameplay. I wanted more. Lost Grimoires 2 could’ve been a cut above the rest, but it lets itself down in familiar ways. It’s a real credit to the puzzling then that it’s still a very good game to chill out and get stuck in to. A four star rating is generous and Artifex Mundi deserves this rating. Cheers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A disappointment 1st game in series made me a huge fan. Unfortunately, the sequel does not live up to the excellence of the 1st game. The artwork is not as nice, voiceovers sound discombobulated from the characters on the screen or just don't match appearance of characters. The story is not as compelling. I loved the 1st game, this game not so much. Sorry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why do child actors always sound whiny? Two minutes in and I quit. I'm sorry, but the voice for Prince Fern was like nails on a chalkboard and I just couldn't deal with it. Note to all developers - try listening to real children sometimes. Seriously.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AT LEAST THE COLLECTOR'S EDITION HAS COLLECTIBLE ROSES TO KEEP YOU ENTERTAINED The good news about this game is that it has 4 very long Chapters. The bad news is that those are the most boring chapters known to mankind. At least with the Collector's Edition version, you can look for a hidden Rose in each scene to take your mind off the fact that the game is so uneventful. I played the demo of the CE when it was released, and then played the demo of this Standard Edition version this morning, and I noticed something I hadn't noticed the first time. In the first HOP, one of the items was an Ace bandage all wrapped up and pinned tightly together with 2 metal clasps, you know, the kind they make presently, not hundreds of years ago! After muddling my way through the demo, I tried to play beyond the demo, and I gave it a valiant attempt, but I just couldn't do it. Constantly trying to make potions and recipes is just too much. I don't even enjoy following the directions to make a recipe in a mini game, much less having to repeat one after another! This is a game of quantity, not quality, with 4 long chapters (CE has a Bonus Chapter titled Behind The Mirror) If you think you can muddle through, here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either is right for you: Another game with an evil imprisoned witch trying to escape, another naive Prince all grown up and ruining everything, another Alchemist who whips up potions using recipes that are conveniently laying around, which btw, always seems to be THE exact potion at THE right time. Top it all off with Royal Golden hues, repetitive puzzles and and boring tasks, what does that equal? Lost Grimoires 2: Shard of Mystery! (not to mention the fact that # 3 has already been released, but it must have gotten Lost) In all fairness, I've never been a fan of recipe related games, and the repetitive Match 3 games that come with it. In the Collector's Edition version, there are 31 hidden Roses, which is a nice touch, but I think Crystal collectibles would've been more appropriate. Other than the usual Music, Wallpapers, Concept Art pictures, and replayable Mini Games and HOP's, that's about all that's offered. The 6 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes don't even have a gold, silver, bronze trophy feature, or any type of timer to try to beat your best score, they are just plain ole HOP's, a one and done kind! The Hidden Object Scenes are varied, and offer no alternative puzzle types. There are Interactive List finds, Multiples of the same items, Keywords in Sentences, Silhouetted Shapes to open up the listed finds. I will admit, that the HOP within an aviary was colorful and really well done, as you are tasked with finding the birds that match the Silhouetted Shapes shown, followed by finding 10 Feathers. The Mini Games aren't really bad, but they are too repetitive, and I became bored after the third or fourth repeat of the same puzzle. As I stated before, I really don't like concocting alchemy recipes, there's no skill involved, so it's just a useless task to make ridiculas potions (example "Odor Sleuth" really?) Below are brief descriptions of some of the Mini Games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Manipulate the padlocks to untangle the chains. 2) Recipe Match 3 game (repeated after each potion, progressively more difficult) this is a chain type Match 3 game requiring you to drag chain matches of a specific number of specific tiles, within a specified amount of moves. 3) Find objects in the telescope according to the keywords during a conversation. 4) Interact with the pages by clicking the correct objects pertaining to Keywords in a story. 5) Click gems in the correct order by repeating the sequence shown 3 times. 6) Place the Chasm Mirror pieces in their proper places. 7) Place the guards so that they secure every spot in the castle (vertical and horizontal coverage) on 3 different boards. 8) Swap tiles to create an image. 9) Find 5 differences between 3 different soldiers. 10) Combine 2 elements to create the new element shown at the top (air, water, earth etc.) 11) Swap the tiles to match the clue shown. 12) Move the character to the other side by pushing statues out of the way without getting stuck. repeat 3 times, in between the potion Match 3 games. The Collector's Edition version has 6 Wallpapers, 6 Concept Art pictures, 8 Music Soundtracks, 6 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 6 Mini Games, 9 Movie Cutscenes, 12 Achievements to earn, 31 Hidden Roses, a built in Strategy Guide, 4 Main Chapters and a Bonus Chapter.
