Customer Reviews
Yuletide Legends: Who Framed Santa Claus is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better Christmas games I was pleasantly surprised by this game. I'm not generally a fan of Christmas games (not because I don't like Christmas, just the way the games portray it) but his one was very good. The title tells you that Santa was framed (for stealing presents) and its up to you to track down the actual thief. The thief has also stolen Santa's voice adding to the difficulty. This leads you on a fairly long journey to various locations where you interact with many characters, including Jack Frost and the Snow Queen. The story line is ok, but I thought the game play was better. There is a nice mix of puzzles and HOPs and I found most of them were interesting to play, if not especially innovative. In my opinion, the weakest part of the game was the voice acting, particularly the character you play. I don't usually like to mention it, but the acting was just way over the top, easily reaching the overacting category. This is also true in the Bonus game, if you purchase the Collectors Edition as I did, where you play the elf. I found the elf's voice slightly more annoying. Speaking of the Bonus Game, it is a bit of a letdown after the main game and not nearly as clever or good. For that reason, and if you miss a collectible in the main game you cannot go back afterwards to get it, I recommend this Standard Edition. Despite a few broken icicles and lumps of coal, this is a good game and of course it's worth saving Santa. Merry Christmas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Santa Needs Our Help! Mrs Santa is so upset when she arrives at the detective agency for help. Poor Santa is in the slammer and we have to get him out of there asap or Christmas will be postponed until next year, A dirty scoundrel has framed sweet Santa for stealing presents and if that isn't bad enough, his voice has been stolen. Our expert, kind of quirky, detective skills will solve this case. After all, Mrs Santa has come to THE best agency for solving holiday crimes. I love this new twist on a Christmas tale and the humor in it. The storyline was very entertaining for me. I loved the look of the graphics which seemed a little retro to me. The characters, voices, costumes, scenery were all done very well and the colors were not a neon assault on the eyes like in many Christmas settings. The game was a lot of fun, not very difficult really, and all the games and HOPs were just the right challenge, for a relaxing good time with the entire family. I don't like giving too much info in my reviews, don't want to spoil anything for you. Many of you may have read the CE reviews. Mine is posted there, a bit lengthier, if you care to check it out. I purchased this delightful Yuletide Legends game because the demo just made me do it !! It was a good purchase, no regrets. My collection of holiday games is getting crazy huge! God Bless.... Joy To The World!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from __-__-__ (insert HO-HO-HO) MERRY CHRISTMAS..cuz they stole Santa's ho, ho, ho's :( Out of the three Christmas-themed HOPA games this year, I enjoyed this one the most because the storyline was good, the characters were more believable and the gameplay wasn't as easy-breezy as the others were. I completely agree with fellow reviewer s_s on his assessment of the game. The characters voiceovers and acting were annoying and over-the-top, especially Tinsel the Elf in the Bonus Chapter. I too found the BC to be a letdown but most BC's aren't as thrilling as the Main Game. He also mentions that you can't return to the scenes to pick up any collectibles you may have missed after completing the main game. I have asked Brave Giant Studio this same question in the forums several times, why can't they allow us to return to the scenes to search for missed collectibles? Sometimes RL interferes with gaming and you have to exit the game and when you return you just completely space looking for the collectibles. Allowing you to return to those scenes after completing the main game would be awesome, most other developers have this feature! Another option that would work is to allow us to return to all previous chapters scene locations, in other words, don't lock previous scenes on the Map so we can return to look for them anytime we want. Holly Jolly Christmas Crimes, Santa's been framed I tell ya! Someone's been mistletoeing around and up to no good and now poor Santa is Jingle-Jangling all the way to the Pokey! As if a criminal record isn't as bad as getting a Lump of Coal for Christmas, they took it one step further and stole his Ho-Ho-Ho's! Never fear for Elf is here... well, he was sitting right on this shelf just a few minutes ago, hmf? ...Never fear for I will Spring Santa from doing serious Time in the Slammer, as soon as I find a way to bake a key into these Sugar Cookies, then I'll go dashing through the snow on a one-horse open sleigh, over the fields I'll go, laughing all the way! Let's just hope my trusty steed doesn't get spooked by that evil Krampus pudding! The Collector's Edition version bling isn't as impressive as last weeks game and there's only one item per scene which is a little disappointing because I love the Yuletide Legends series the most out of all the Christmas oriented HOPA games. Daily Magic has handed the reins over to Brave Giant on this series so I'm anxious to see what they do with next years Yuletide Legends. The CE version has three different types of collectibles, Characters, Puzzles, and Gingerbread Men Cookies. There is a Present Icon on the Inventory bar that closes when the collectible has been found, and the good news is that there are no Gadgets or Helpers! The Bonus Chapter (CE version only) takes us on a mission to cure Santa's Christmas Flu, playing as Tinsel the Elf. The BC has 5 Mini-Games and 5 Hidden Object Scenes but there are no Morphing Objects or Collectibles after the Main Game. (with the exception of the Morphing object available in the HOP's) The Bonus Chapter is pretty long and worthy of the extra price as far as quantity goes, but the storyline didn't thrill me as much as I had hoped. The Hidden Object Scenes are varied with Interactive List Finds, Progressive-Interactive Silhouetted Shape Finds, Multiple Item Finds and Keywords in Sentence Finds. Most of the scenes have a Morphing Listed Item that must be clicked on in the correct form. The objects are fast-morphing and the listed text morphs on the inventory bar as well which makes it difficult Not to spot. There is an Optional Monaco Card game available, a Brave Giant standard feature. The Mini-Games are fun but should be more Christmas-themed in my opinion. They are all fairly easy and many of the games are the same type which disappointed me somewhat for lack of originality. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the game: 1-Use directional arrows to navigate & find landmarks on a map. 2-Find matching pairs of keys. 3-Find and replace items within a book. 4-Select pins in the correct order by trial and error. 5-Select colored buttons according to the color-coded number clues. 6-Surround the Elf by trapping him on a honeycomb style grid. 7-Arrange the presents so that no row or column has matching presents. 8-Spot the differences between pictures. 9-Surround the Gingerbread Man from escaping. This Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, 8 Concept Art Pictures,5 Music Soundtracks, Movie Cutscene Videos, 8 re-playable Mini-Games, 8 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 20 Achievements to Earn, 28 Christmas Collectibles (8 Gingerbread Men Cookies, 8 Character Figurines, 12 Puzzles) 4 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yuletide Legends: Who Framed Santa Clause I really enjoyed playing this Christmas game as it felt suitable for adults, not as cartoonie as most. I will be replaying this one a few times before removing it from my files.
