Customer Reviews
Chimeras: The Signs of Prophecy is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would have bought if it weren't those cut scenes This is a typical hidden object game with the usual solving mystery in an town as a phenomenon detective storyline. Graphic is Elephant standard with bright colors. Sound quality and voiceovers were good, and the dialogs did not annoyed me. HOGs and mini games were not challenging but did not bored me either. The map was efficient enough to travel around and gather things. However, the cut scenes were totally a different story. When I watched the introduction scene at the beginning of the game I hoped that it was just that one scene. But I found myself entirely wrong. I just couldn't stand it when the second animation appeared in the same poor quality. Strongly suggest playing the trial before buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Chimeras: The Sign of Game Apathy The developers of this game must be under a great deal of pressure to turn out new games because this one appears to have been phoned in. The game was short, the puzzles extremely easy (on Advanced play), and the story was uninspired. Absolutely nothing new in this game. I only gave it three stars because it looked nice, everything worked, and I was entertained for a few hours.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Lion, With the Head of a Goat and a Tail Ending with a Snake's Head. OH MY! CHIMERAS: THE SIGNS OF PROPHECY This review is based on two one-hour trials. I played on a Mac Book Pro utilizing operating system 10.9.5. Signs of Prophecy is exactly what many gamers will love: fast-paced action; a lot of inventory items, several of which are + objects requiring other items or more actions to complete them; several collectible items; morphing items; and, very approachable mini-games and HOS. The hour-long trial was fun. At other times in my playing history, I’d likely have given this game 4, or even, 5 stars. Today I look for story-driven games I can sink my teeth into and this is not an example of one. FUN FACTOR: Who doesn’t like successfully completing a bunch of mini-games and breezing through several HOS, every once in a while? Not every game has to be ponderous and this one is not. On several levels it’s just good, unadulterated fun. VISUAL/SOUND QUALITY What you see: This game lacks the clear and precise drawings of some of today's standout games and series. In some games I actually have to think for a moment whether or not I'm looking at a real person or a drawn and animated character. The thought didn’t cross my mind as I played this. The characters are not at all realistic and you’ll never wonder if they’re human or drawings. There is a dark ambience to the game…because the early scenes are all at dusk/night time. That doesn’t make this game eerie. It is not remotely eerie. What you hear: I have gotten a lot of “flack” for this opinion when shared with my review of the CE: The game is set in Munich, Germany yet except for a fortune-teller near the beginning of the game, every voice actor speaks idiomatic English with no trace of a foreign accent. I’ve yet to hear a European tourist, facile with English, say “ain’t.” In this game, presumed citizens of Munich say the word “ain’t.” To me this is sloppy direction or development or something….Whatever or whoever is responsible, it’s not good. Some say that this is a game and it’s make believe, so it shouldn’t matter. Well, that’s one opinion that’s very valid. My opinion, however, is this is a game and it's make believe, so accents do matter and a game supposedly played out in Germany should have actors ACTING with German accents. I was criticized by a German player who said she’d never heard a German police officer speak English. I suspect, given her German-ness, that he spoke German to her. All I know is that I’ve had to defend my right to prefer accents. If you don’t, then by all means do not let it bother you!!! For me, however, it is a directorial or editing error. What else you hear: The sound track music is forgettable. I recall at one point it is very compelling, urgent and scary. When the action warrants it, this is the point that a soundtrack becomes an important part of the game. Sadly, this game is never “chilling.” There are no “goosies” as J-Lo puts it. Consequently, that urgent, scary soundtrack moment is lost in a forgettable script. LEVEL OF CHALLENGE HOS: All very straightforward. You will not struggle to find the items. There are “interactive” hidden objects but these, too, present no challenge. You will not struggle. Mini-Games: Very, very easy. THEY WERE FUN…and sometimes it’s great to get through a game without a hiccough…just power through, completing task after task, game after game. You can do that here. Morphing Items/Chimeras: This is the most important, very positive, feature, in my opinion. YAY!! The cursor does not change to a hand while hovering over morphing items or “chimeras.” In Chimeras Elephant Games bucks the trend of giving away a feature we pay a lot of money for when buying a CE rather than an SE. So, a big shout out for “keeping it real.” (If only they’d done that with the accents) STORYLINE: As I wrote earlier, this is a game that you can power through. That means moving quickly from task to task rather than contemplating what’s happening and seeing how this HOS or that mini-game really fills in the storyline and at the same time pushes it forward. Yes, there’s a clearly stated “story.” At no point, though, is the story compelling for me. In fact, I would say that the story serves as way to present what would otherwise be unrelated HOS and mini-games. AS A COLLECTOR’S EDITION: *There are collectibles and morphing items. *There are the typical “who cares?” non-“bling” items which are part and parcel of every CE. *There is a strategy guide that I did not consult. I’m sure it’s more than adequate. *There are achievements. *There is a bonus chapter. Of course, I didn’t get far enough to play it. Since, in my opinion, the story isn’t the central purpose of this game, I can’t imagine that either an alternative ending or a prequel chapter will be anything more than another vehicle for presenting HOS and mini-games. CONCLUSION: TO SE or CE As I wrote at the beginning, I think this is an OK game and if you’re looking for fast action with straightforward HOS and mini-games, this is PERFECT. If you like morphing items and collectibles, achievements and a strategy guide, then this is PERFECT FOR YOU…and you get bonus game play with the additional chapter. So, go for it! Because of the value of the morphing items and the infrequent real challenge they present in these games, I suggest getting the CE if you’re up for something that will take a little extra work! Also as I wrote at the beginning, if you’re looking for something to really sink your teeth into (and a game that’s really driven by the storyline), then this is probably not for you. It’s not for me, but that doesn’t make it bad. If this game seems the least bit intriguing to you, DEFNITELY play the trial hour. You will see what this game is and you’ll know what it isn’t before the trial clock reaches 0:00.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from . The only reason I played this game until the end is because after 2.5 hours of playing it was over! Come on! Waste of time and money. The HOS are super simple and not once did I need a hint throughout the entire game. I didn't find there was too much back and forth but the game lacked everywhere. This is a good purchase for a beginner. 2016

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure why I played to the end This game was a total disappointment for me (I expect more from Elephant Games). I regret having purchased it, and I've already deleted it from my iMac. I agree totally with Rescue-helo's remarks. The game looks good, but is simplistic and boring. Without giving it away, the ending was really lame. Most of the mini-games and HOPs are incredibly easy; I sincerely wish the developers had included a Match 3 or other option. I don't really understand the number of 4- and 5-star reviews for this game. (For what it's worth, I'm learning to question 5-star reviews from folks whose high reviews are 80-90% of their total reviews.) Try before you buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Same old ingredients, different package Playing this game is like being served the same soup a cook would be feeding us with over and over again in a slightly differently decorated plate each time. With no hot sauce! Once again Elephant Games are giving us the very same old recipe they have used in all their other releases, and that other developing teams have also adopted. A fantasy story that is highly dubious, rather mediocre and so unappealing that you couldn't care less about it or where it leads to. And again...hidden keys and amulets that open boxes or bags containing more keys and amulets that open........ But a game wouldn't be a good game without the traditional lantern that you have to fix, or the shovel you need to dig a hole where.... an amulet (you guessed right) is buried, or a carriage handle that breaks when you touch it, right? How did the hero (you) knew that amulet was there in the first place will remain one of the numerous mysteries of the game. But this time you don't have to feed the odd cat, just give him a toy mouse (that you have to fix) so that he gets out of your way. Ever thought of just picking him up ? Naturally, you spend your time going from A to B to C to D back to A, etc... to retrieve and use the items you need, as they are scattered everywhere, preferably in the least likely places. Don't be afraid to break in houses, pry off the ruby on the ring that a sleeping man is wearing, and do a lot more things that are not only ridiculous but would send you to jail in real life. But it's fantasy, right ? So anything is permitted. And what do you expect when you have a chimera flying around ? Much to the devs' credit, their interactive HO Scenes are neat, clear, not overcrowded, with all items easy to find. Yet die-hard HOG fans will probably find them much too simple. They add nothing to the development of the "adventure", anyway. Even simpler are the minigames. So much so, that they offer zero challenge. It took me less than one minute to complete those I played in the demo, two minutes for the multi puzzle. Although the sad simplicity of this Chimera might suit beginners, players who have never played this kind of game before, I cannot recommend it due to its lack of challenge, the absence of logic, because it's disjointed, because it offers nothing novel, nothing even slightly original, and in short because it is extremely boring, in spite of the graphics that are nice.
