Chimeras: The Price of Greed Collector's Edition is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Loved Every Chimeras Game including this one The cute Gordon Carrington contacted me the detective to find out what the police have no clue about and that is the disappearance of the butler and my father's disappearance. This is a supernatural tale. I don't know why this isn't five starts for everyone, but it is for me. I'm a big time Chimeras fan and look forward to them all. The bonus chapter I return because I was invite to shared Christmas at the Carrington Mansion. I like the storyline, gameplay, hops, collectibles and some mini-games. I collected 48 puzzle pieces, 25 morphs and 12 cards that have chilling stories. Has a secret room that I collected 61 morphs in four locations, one of the locations is the Sunroom. You just find morphs only in the secret room. The only thing that could be off is Mr. Carrington inherited the mansion. The bonus chapter he remembers the previous buyer. What the buyer before his father? Has 4 chapters + bonus. The trial is almost half of the main game. Has replays on 13 hops, 13 mini-games, 5 music. Nice Achievement items. 12 Wallpaper, 12 Concept art, 4 screensavers and Secret room that you find 61 morphs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chyimeras: The Price of Greed Collectors Edition I played the game for over an hour and then I bought it. My recommendation is give the game a try and decide if you like it or not. I love the game I do not regret buying this game. I never believe the first reviews I have to give it a try for myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Very Good Mystery Game Just A Bit Short This is the first Chimera game I have played. I understand from other reviewers that the other games are very different so maybe try the demo first and see if it's your thing. I very much enjoyed the plot line and the way the game worked. Good puzzles and HO scenes. An entertaining mystery that I very much enjoyed playing. In common with lots of games recently it was rather short and over too quickly. I'm not the fastest player of these games so if you are quite quick you may find paying for the CE version a bit much. The graphics were excellent and the whole game very atmospheric. If it had been longer it would have got 5 stars

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Trial: Above Average. Held my Interest. Moved Forward. The graphics are excellent, the décor and rooms well decorated, the building and the exterior areas are well designed. Don't know about the bat creatures. I think a little more creativity might have gone into their development. They appeared sort of cartoonish. Makes me wonder if there might be more cartoon characters in the future. Also Gordon has purple lips, but the characters are well put together. However, Gordon is more modern and the maid is old school, but that may play out in the future. I like that the game moved forward, the tasks are interesting and completed timely with only a few lingering older items left in the inventory. The mini games are fun, doable and not overly long. Hidden object games have some variety as well. Only real complaint is some of the task items were a bit small. I would consider purchasing this game. Nicely done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quite a good game I do not think this game deserves such a low rating. Sound and visuals were excellent and the collectibles challenging to find. The only thing I did not like was the Chimeras which looked like a simple flying children's toy. Other than that, it kept me in suspense, making me want to see what happens next.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ITS NOT WHAT I CONSIDER CHIMERAS BUT IT’S A VERY GOOD MYSTERY GAME Chimeras The Price of Greed is a very good mystery game, if that is what you want. I thoroughly enjoyed the demo BUT, as a Chimeras game it fell far short of the original that was released six years ago. When Chimeras Tune of Revenge was released in 2013 it was an instant hit with gamers and received a solid five-star rating. Over the years Chimeras has morphed into something different just like those abundant morphing objects we find in games from this developer. As far as Chimeras games go, it seems the well has run dry. Had The Price of Greed perhaps been released as a new mystery series, I think the game overall would fare better in the ratings from gamers. The game is actually a very good mystery game that I enjoyed. The storyline is very interesting and progresses well as we go on a never-ending search for bits and bobs that are strewn all over the Carrington mansion. It is the basic premise of HOPA games that we must search to find the items we require to complete the game and that will never change. For newer gamers, those who haven’t played hundreds of HOPAs over the years, they will find The Price of Greed a very well-crafted mystery game from one of BFG’s top developers. I happen to love games from this developer and have not often been disappointed by any of their games. I happened to enjoy the demo of the Price of Greed and will purchase the full game. The HOS are typical of those we often see and there was not anything different or new. I am not one of those gamers who always expects something new or different in HOPA games since I realize that there is only so much that can be done given the basic format. Occasionally, I am delighted when there is that surprising touch of creativity with the HO scenes, but I don’t always expect to find it in each new game. The puzzles or mini games are excellent and there are many included that I have enjoyed in the past. I am particularly fond of the puzzle where I had to place tokens into a basic frame to fill the entire area with no spaces in between the tokens. I love that type of puzzle and it has always been one I enjoy. There is a good variety in the puzzles and most of them were enjoyable with only one that I skipped because I hate the ones where moving one bar changes the others. I fiddled with that puzzle and finally just hit the skip button because I found it so annoying. Maybe when I feel more like spending some time to figure out the sequence, I might even enjoy it. It is my humble opinion that The Price of Greed would be better as a new series rather than being attached to the Chimeras series. I think gamers expect a certain thing from their favorite long-time series, and The Price of Greed simply doesn’t meet my expectation as a Chimeras game, and it may not resonate with others as well. Because I enjoyed the demo and want to see how it all ends, the game is a purchase for me. As always, please try the demo to see if Chimeras The Price of Greed is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from okay for some mindless entertainment I finished the game today - it was okay for some entertainment. Certainly not in line with the other Chimera games, but I enjoyed the day playing it and just relaxing with it. I do love all the "extra" stuff to find in all the scenes - for me, it adds to the game. anyway, I did enjoy it and took me most of the day. Thanks BF.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ONE EYED BATS??????? Obviously somewhere along the way Elephant Games got lost and confused. The title clearly states Chimeras, yet what they give us is one eyed stupid looking bats! I really had a hard time not laughing when they would pop up on the screen.The premise of the game could have been good (without the bats of course) but it somehow seemed to fall a little flat. I think this could have been a stand alone game as a who done it. The graphics were just okay in my opinion, which I know the Dev is more than capable of doing much better. The Hos were good as were most of the puzzles. A few (Demo only) I had to think about before being able to solve them. I suggest you try the Demo lst..As much as I would like to know what happens- this is not a buy for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from WHODUNIT? WHO CARES? REVIEW BASED UPON THE ENTIRE GAME 4 Chapters Plus a Bonus Chapter – Strategy Guide: 37 pages. (My Time: 5 Hours) OPINION: Detective! After receiving a letter from Gordon Carrington, you are off to the Carrington Estate to investigate the disappearance of his father, Edgar, and the butler, Bernard. In this lackluster case, uncover the chicanery and greed tied to the disappearances. Romp around the estate searching for evidence as you uncover what happened to both Gordon’s father and the butler. Uncover a magic scroll which will hoist you through a portal into a realm of riches, those craved by one or more of the suspects. Lost that magic feeling? Throughout the game the player consults a magic scroll to open portal to a land of riches. It is too bad that same magic scroll did not provide some gaming magic to the game itself. This is a short, lackluster game lacking any creative design. I became bored playing some parts of the game. This game is not indicative of the quality of most of the games produced by this developer. It seems to have been hastily assembled. Where are the chimeras? Unlike past games in this series, there are few chimeras in this game. There are a few of them popping up from time-to-time; however, for the most part, the game is a detective story centered around greedy, unscrupulous evildoers. Ho-hum! There are twenty (20) boring HOP scenes. You can replay thirteen (13) of them. Most are straight lists of items and silhouette scenes. I found most with little or no interactivity. There are a few storybook scenes with items listed in highlighted letters. There is also one spot-the-differences scene. It seems the latest rage for developers is to provide puzzles and scenes in which two symbols are chosen which, when combined, create a more complex symbol. There are several of these within the game. I feel this type of scene is now hackneyed and overused in this game. There are twenty (20) mini-games. You can replay thirteen (13) of them. Most of them are easy – a little too easy for my taste. Most of the puzzles are variations of ones seen in other games. Déjà vu? One of the puzzles, a switch puzzle, is the same one I played in another recent game. It is a puzzle in which lock pieces are switched between two columns, so they mesh when combined. There are three (3) collectibles; puzzle pieces to create four (4) pictures, morphing objects, and cards. I found most easy to locate. I wish Elephant Games would provide a sidebar indicating the number of collectibles within each scene and if all have been located. Other developers provide this feature and it is a nice touch. As in most of this developer’s games, there is a secret room unlocked at the end of the game in which the player returns to the scenes to locate an increasing number of new items placed within the scenes. You are timed in this activity. MECHANICS: • Four (4) levels of play including a customized version. • 26 achievements. • Collect 48 puzzle pieces for 4 puzzles (12 each) • Collect 25 morphing objects • Collect 12 cards • 12 Wallpapers along with concept art, music and video sequences • Replay 13 mini-games and 13 HOP scenes • Secret room in which to locate an increasing number of items by returning to game scenes. You are timed BONUS CHAPTER: Bah Humbug! It is a sequel. Return to the Carrington Estate to attend a Christmas party – well almost. Like Ebeneezer Scrooge, first you must suffer through the tale of a ghost from the past. Strange bumps and noises have required your assistance in handling the ghost of a crazed scientist, a former resident of the mansion. There are an equal number of HOP scenes and puzzles – six (6) of each. It felt as if the Christmas elements were thrown in so it could add a dash of holiday spirit. This chapter has absolutely nothing to do with Christmas except for the beginning scene. The only Christmas spirit in this game is the ghost. I found the HOP scenes as boring as the in the main chapter and some of the mini-games ridiculously easy. SPOILERS: HERE ARE SOME OF THE MINI-GAMES AFTER THE DEMO: A. Rotating maze puzzle. Rotate a circular maze using gears at the side to move a metal ball to the center of the grid. B. Sliding tiles puzzle. Slide flower tokens along paths to their proper position on a grid. They must match he image of the flower beneath them C. Switch puzzle. Switch 14 lock pieces distributed between two columns so that each piece meshes with the one next to it. Déjà vu? D. Matching puzzle. Match up keys to remove them from a keyring. E. Assembly puzzle. Position clock hands on a clock so each hand points at a different number on the clock. F. Assembly puzzle. Choose two symbols on a shield which, when combined, create a symbol on another shield. BONUS CHAPTER: G. Connection puzzle. Rotate hexagonal tokens so that three different colored paths are formed by connecting links. H. Switch puzzle. On a grid, separate skulls by shape and colored eyes. Organize them as per direction at the bottom of the grid. I. Rotating rings puzzle. Rotate 3 rings divided into 3 sections, each with a part of an animal until they all position to produce the image of an owl.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from DID YOU GUYS SLAP THIS GAME TOGETHER DURING A CO. CHRISTMAS PARTY AFTER A BIT TOO MUCH YULETIDE CHEER? What the flying, one-eyed bats were these folks drinking at the company Christmas Party? I'd like to remind everyone that a Chimera has the body of a female Lion with a Goat's head protruding from the lion's shoulder, her tail is that of a serpent with a snake's head and she usually has wings similar to a dragon. The Chimeras' in this game are bats with a cyclops eye and vampire fangs, the most ridiculous interpretation of a Chimera you could possibly imagine. (unless, of course, they have really good Yuletide "cheer" in Ukraine) The bizarreness doesn't end with a few fake-looking bats (nor does it start there) one minute you're investigating the disappearance of the Butler and the mansion's owner, the next scene you portal into another dimension with no rhyme or reason. There's no real plot, the story jumps from one focal point to the next. Is it a paranormal game? A detective who-dun-it game? A fantasy game? A transgender game? A greek mythology Chimeras game? They were definitely testing their boundaries, which I'm okay with, it doesn't bother me, but while pushing the envelope, they lost sight of everything else, mostly the plot and fun factor which IS a BIG deal, and I'm not okay with that! ps: why do you have us find a wrench, use that wrench one time, lose the wrench mysteriously after a single use even though there were two zoom zone scenes literally side by side that required a wrench? How could I lose the wrench if I didn't leave the room? Wouldn't it make more sense that I would search the same room for said wrench? pss: some of us play a game to earn ALL of the ACHIEVEMENTS. Isn't that the point of offering achievements? Aren't they supposed to be goals you strive to achieve??? WHY would you have an achievement for NOT skipping any of the Mini-Games and an achievement for SKIPPING ALL Mini-Games!!! Why would you offer an achievement for listening to ALL dialogs and one for SKIPPING ALL dialogs? Does that really make sense to you? Who on earth would think it was a great idea to offer achievements which ultimately set's the player up for failure because it's IMPOSSIBLE to earn all of them???????????????? Helper/Gadgets: I'm pleased to report that there were no Gadgets or Helpers harmed in the making of this game, however, HR is looking into the Yuletide Cheer stockpile shortage which seems to have been depleted unusually fast this year. Collectibles/Morphs: They actually got the Morphs and Collectibles right! Each of the 25 scene locations has a Morphing Object that morphs at a nice pace and is well-blended into the background. The objects morph into a similar object with similar colors which make them less noticeable and somewhat challenging to spot at times. There are 12 Collectible Cards about various Cursed Objects that can be found in some of the Zoom Zones, and they did an incredible job of blending the cards into the scenery as well. I was most impressed with the infamous Elephant Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces. In the past, these puzzle pieces were the size of baby Elephants and could be spotted a mile away, and they always located in just the Zoom Zones. This time they have hidden 1 jigsaw in the scene itself, and the other 2 in zoom zones, and they are more obscure than in previous games. Hidden Object Scenes: There are 20 Hidden Object Scenes +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Most of the scenes are Interactive Lists or Silhouetted Shape Finds but there are Keywords in Sentence Finds, Fragment Finds, Spot the Difference, and Multiples of the Same Object Finds as well. There are no alternate puzzles offered. Mini-Games: There are 20 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. They are the same puzzles offered in hundreds of other Elephant Games. Here are a few of my favorites from the game: 1-Place flower-shaped pieces onto the board. 2-Align vertical bars so the gaps align with horizontal bars to remove them. 3-Use rotation buttons to guide a ball to the central hole. 4-Select a key section from the left and right sides to swap until all sections interlock. 5-Place skulls correctly according to eye color and shape. Bonus Chapter (CE version only) The Carringtons have invited you to their Christmas party but before you can enjoy the Yuletide Festivities and create your own bazaar game you'll have to deal with a former resident of the mansion. This is a short chapter that spans over 7 different scene locations with 6 Hidden Object Scenes and 6 Mini-Games. You will pick up the remaining 3 Collectible Cards, 7 Morphing Objects and 12 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces to complete the final 12 piece Jigsaw Puzzle Screensaver. Collector's Edition Extra's: 12 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 13 Replayable Mini-Games, 13 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 25 Achievements, a Secret Room (timed HOP) 25 Morphing Objects, 12 Collectible Cards (w/ cursed object legends) 48 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces, 4 Jigsaw Puzzle Screensavers (assemble with collectible jigsaw puzzle pieces) 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
