Bonfire Stories: Heartless is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Money I played the demo and immediately got hooked. I bought it and finished the game. Everything was good. I do recommend this game, but maybe get collectors edition so that you can play the bonus level. My only nitpicks are that some of the puzzles were difficult for me and (SPOILERS AHEAD) I don't know what happened to Margaret at the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unpredictable story with a surprising twist. I thought this was an excellent game overall. I had not loved the first Bonfire Stories so I was wary about this one. Playing the first part of he game you would never have guessed that it would end the way it did. So many games are predictable that it was refreshing to have such an unusual story line. Graphics, music, voice overs were very well done. My only complaint was that you did get objects far ahead of needing them and I would forget where they were needed so had to ponder the map. Thank goodness there was one! As the game progressed there seemed to a lot of back and forth and using the map saved having to keep navigating through the rooms. But that is minor. I would definitely recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good game This is a good game with a lot to offer for not being a collector's edition. I played quite awhile on the simplest setting even though I am more experienced than that. If you have a free game coupon, go for it. I will replay on a tougher setting buy I highly recommend this. I would really like to see the CE if it has morphing objects or collectors items to find. The regular game is pretty straight forward and I missed the challenge of those little extras. The story is sort of on the line of the usual Hidden Objects but has some flair usually missing. I really appreciate the extra effort. The art is great. The music is unobtrusive. I will target more of this company's games when I am using earned chips etc. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoyed it An interesting, smooth flowing game. Scenes could be a little dark (color wise) but I found the game quite enjoyable. Options allow you to customize your own game which is always a plus. Not a puzzle player I actually found most of the puzzles/mini games to be easy and was able to immediately skip those I didn't want to spend time with. HOS were creative and clever. Story line was something I haven't seen before and had a very interesting twist at the end. Transporter map was excellent and the hint was also a transporter. A fair amount of dialog, some you can skip, some you can't but the cut scenes were actually kind of interesting and did fill out the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CAN YOU SOLVE THE MYSTERY OF THE HEARTLESS? Yes, folks as we enter autumn it is time for BFG to delight us with a bunch of scary games to fit the season – after all Halloween is right around the corner! Bonfire Stories Heartless is the second game in the series and for me it seems much better than The Faceless Gravedigger. This time around you play the game as Tom Gilbert who has been seeking answers for his father’s death during a camping trip to Calispell Forest. Year after year Tom, who is still haunted by nightmares after seeing his father captured by half-human beasts with the heads of animals. When Tom arrives at the campground he soon realizes that this year he might find the answers when another camper is dragged into the swirling red mist by the same creatures who took his dad years ago. Since other reviewers ptovide in-depth details of the game I will only tell you what I did or didn’t like about the game. For me this game is all about the storyline that grabbed me right from the beginning scene. It is not often that I am so engrossed in the storyline that when the demo ends I am totally surprised by how involved I was with the game. For me at least the game was a bit difficult because it was not always easy to figure out what my next step should be. Of course, there was always the obvious item that would be used right away but there is a lot of back and forth between scenes to find items and then remember where they fit. I don’t mind the back and forth between scenes as much as some gamers because for me it makes the game far more interesting when I must remember where I can use a specific item. As much as I loved the storyline and trying to solve the mystery, for me the HOPS were a major disappointment. Although the HOPS might have been creative, or at least an attempt at something different, I think they are the weak point in the game. I disliked the scene after scene of finding twelve of a specific item or even finding sets of specific items. I much prefer the old school and more traditional HOP scenes where there is some interaction and a variety of items to find. The puzzles were good and some were difficult but none, IMHO, were super challenging. Recently, I am seeing more of those toggle type puzzles in games and I dislike those particularly when there seems to be no consistent pattern to the sequence. There were some puzzles that I enjoyed such as those where you must remove posts in a particular sequence, or the one where you must move tokens simultaneously on different sides of a grid. All in all the puzzles were not horrible but I hope to see those toggle type puzzles go away! As I mentioned above, for me the game was about the storyline and about the gameplay. I felt that this was an excellent game with terrific graphics and just the right touch of fear factor. There were times when I found myself holding my breath because I wasn’t sure what was behind the next door or hallway. The story was told in a very consistent manner and I wasn’t left feeling like it skipped all over the place and half was missing as happens with some games. As another reviewer noted, kudos to the script writer because they did an excellent job with telling this this Bonfire Story. The gameplay had me very entertained as I tried to rescue Margaret and get both of us out alive. Even though Bonfire Stories Heartless is one that I had to buy, please try the demo to see if this is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'VE GOTTA GIVE THEM KUDOS FOR THE PLOT TWIST I purchased the Collector's Edition version of Heartless and there were things I really liked about this game overall. Mariaglorium did a nice job with the plot, making you believe one thing, and then turning it around to something you didn't expect. I thought the game was the perfect length, not too long and drawn out, yet leaving you satisfied that you got your money's worth. I liked that you could return to a specific scene to pick up any collectible or heart you may have missed in the CE version, but I wish the Hearts were available within the Bonus Chapter as well because they were fantastically blended and very challenging to spot. The CE Bonus Chapter is a sequel that takes place immediately after the game, which is exactly what I like, I'm not a fan of BC's that go back in time. For me personally, I prefer the CE version over the SE, but here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version, if either, is right for you: Grab your marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers and pop a squat on a nearby log in front of the campfire, it's time for another Bonfire Story. You survived "The Faceless Gravedigger," but can you survive "The Hunt?" This particular Bonfire Story has haunted you for years. Memories of that fateful night consume your waking thoughts and sleeping nightmares, and tonight you have returned to the scene of the crime in search for answers. As luck would have it, the Crimson Mist returns, and so has the Heartless. Let the hunt begin! The graphics are really well done, with just the right amount of darkness, although I thought they could have chosen a different color for "The Mist" Pink mist takes away from the credibility of a true horror or sci-fi theme, I think a grey mist or even a green mist if it had to have a color contrast, would have been more believable, at least for me personally. The Collector's Edition version has 12 Character figurines to find but it's impossible to miss them because they are located within Zoom Zones that don't close until you click on the collectible. I will say though that they have done an excellent job of blending the 22 Hidden Hearts within each scene (CE version only) I found myself having to stare intently more than a few times before spotting some of them so nice job on that one Mariaglorum! The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Multiple items finds such as 12 Matches, 12 Arrow bolts, 12 Nuts etc. Some of the scenes are Progressive or include a small puzzle to solve, but for the most part, they lack creativity. I will admit that some of the items are well blended so I have to give them credit for that feature. The scenes are clear and fairly bright as well. The Mini-Games were just okay for me personally. I found them to be rehashed games that weren't very challenging, in fact, they can easily be solved on the first attempt. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo portion to help you decide if this game is for you: 1-Press the buttons in the correct order. 2-Select the 4 related images on the flute. 3-Push in all buttons, clicking one may affect others. 4-Click to make the horse jump obstacles, 3 lives available (poor horse) 5-Slide the tokens along tracks to their matching slots. 6-Select triangle and/or square tokens & directional arrows to move a dial to the images shown above. 7-Click when the lines are inside the target circle. 8-Remove the bars in the correct order. 9-Place the various shaped boards to fill the grid entirely. 10-Use the arrows to guide the handle tip through the maze. The Collector's Edition version has 15 Wallpapers, 48 Concept Art pictures, 6 Movie Video Cutscenes, 8 Music Soundtracks, 9 Achievements to earn in 3 categories, 22 Hidden Hearts, 12 Character Figurines, 6 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter (sequel that occurs directly afterward) and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy the hunt!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Halloween Favorite I haven't played any Bonfire Stories games before and was worried about getting this one. So many games have you going back and forth nowadays. This one does too but you can click on 'Hint' and it will whoosh you to your destination. I'm not fond of reading dialogues or having to listen to them. I took away a star because you can't skip past them in the notes that they read to you. I love, love, love the HOG's and mini games. I didn't use the tutorial at the beginning of the game so it took me a couple of minutes to figure out that the 'Info' tab was next to the 'Hint' tab on how to play each game. I would've loved having more of the HOG's. I can't tell you about music or sounds because I keep my sound off. I also used my 'Hint' button over a 100 times because if it takes me more than 2 minutes to find something or figure out where to go next my ADD takes over. All in all this is a very fun game and I would highly recommend it to my friends.
