Christmas Stories: Enchanted Express is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A NEW CHRISTMAS CLASSIC FOR ME TO LOVE Christmas is my favorite time of year! I so enjoy the fact that the games coming out this month will be happier and brighter all to set the stage for a magical time of year. For years now I have looked forward to the Christmas Stories release from one of my favorite game developers because the games are so excellent. They are all based on one tale or another and the first one that began it all in 2012 also began a Christmas tradition for me. This latest annual release Enchanted Express is another magical game that features the beloved characters Hansel and Gretel. As Hansel and Gretel are on their way home, Hansel is enticed onto a train by a storyteller. In order to ride the train Hansel must atone for any wrongdoing he may have caused throughout the year. Of course, Gretel isn’t invited on board so she jumps on the train as it is leaving the station and now, she must not only save Hansel but herself as well. After so many recent dark and dreary games, Enchanted Express is the game I’ve been waiting for. I love everything about Christmas, so the bright colors and the Christmas music sent me to my happy place as I played this wonderful game. The gameplay is nothing new as we must find this or that or do this or that in order to move forward to the next scene. I don’t let that put me off as that is the basic premise of all HOPA games. I enjoyed all the HOS and even the puzzles that I thought were excellent. Most of the puzzles, although familiar, were brightened up with a Christmas theme. Some of my favorite puzzles were included in the mix so that kept me very happy. Christmas Stories Enchanted Express is the perfect game to kick off the holiday season and it is one that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Even though the game is perfect for me, please try the demo to see if it is one you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Christmas game I liked the game. The plot was fun. The mini games were on the easier side and would be good for beginners or younger players. Given the story line not a bad thing. My biggest complaint is that I felt that the game was short. I used a credit so I didn't pay for it. But I might have been disappointed if I had paid full price for it. All in all I liked the game and am happy I purchased it. Its nice to have Christmas themed stories at the holidays. Also a nice change from all the dark and disturbing themed games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All Aboard to Fix Christimases Past I'm a wee bit confused about the antagonist - but still enjoyed game. :-) *** following is a spoiler of Hansel's offense, which comes at last part of main game for those who want a clearer depiction of what to expect - Not only did Hansel disobey his mother by eating the gingerbread house she saved for the party, when he knew not to, he hid the pieces that collapsed and when the mother found them and blamed Gretel, scolding her, Hansel didn't admit he was the culprit but instead ran away from home - that all sounds like quite a dose of naughtiness to me, and it was unkind to let Gretel take the fall for his misdeed...*** The Enchanted Express was for those who had regrets for bad or selfish things they'd done to others, to have a chance to make up for them by helping other people who were enchanted, also for misdeeds. Children were not the only ones punished - adults were too, for neglect of family and for not helping the needy. However, the antagonist (antihero?) was written a bit unclear in his motives - was he a good guy at heart that truly wanted those on the train to right their wrongs and be freed, to make it home for Christmas - or did he secretly want them to ride the train forever, if they refused to take part in his tales (or didn't beat his clock)? Was he a tough cookie with tough rules, but truly did care? Or was he pretending to care, but with a hidden agenda of wanting to keep those he turned into animals - those who refused to take part in the tales to help others - on his Enchanted Express? It seemed that way throughout most of the game, with the obstacles he threw in the path, but then it shows him as a good guy at the end, giving Gretel another chance, later waving to the children and them waving back (???) And in the CE version of the bonus, (which was sweet with a moral tale of being kind and not judging others despite their differences) the antagonist warmly says he loves stories with happy endings. (Um...what?? lol) So, in that I was confused - perhaps the antagonist had a change of heart and mellowed through Gretel's willingness to free those enchanted on the train? lol I don't know. It's the only thing that makes sense to this story. I knocked a star off because without the morphs and collectibles and the bonus chapter found in the CE, it didn't feel as conclusive to me as a Christmas game (though the bonus chapter stands alone, and is a tale the storyteller tells us about cats, as all the "Christmas Stories" games bonuses are about them, and which I love, being a cat lover.) In the CE version only, along with the usual bling, there was also a secret room, which led to four areas and morphs (the type where item appears a short time then disappears) , with a clock that runs while doing it, which was fun to play and try to beat the last time achieved. But the standard version is also delightful to play (and perhaps a wee bit less confusing as to the motives of the storyteller lol). I hope this was helpful to someone. I realize it was more about plot /story than game mechanics, but I felt some things needed to be clarified... Merry Christmas! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than most I'm not a huge hidden object fan but I play them when nothing else appeals to me, and I really liked this one. I read reviews and was intrigued. No, I did not find it scary or objectionable in any way. It was a little bit of several stories woven into one. The drawings were very nice and festive, the story was interesting and the figuring out parts were challenging but not so much that you wanted to do hints. The extra puzzles were not to my liking so I skipped most of those. If this is your preferred genre I would think you would really like it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Game, Could be Better The game has nice Christmasey graphics but not as nice as another competing Christmas game story, they lack sharpness. The music was not as good as the other game either. There are no easter eggs in this game. The story is nice but not that good. 2 of the puzzles are wacky, have no logic. It's not a bad game but could be better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CHRISTMAS MORALS WHERE CHILDREN LIVE IN FEAR & THE BAD GUY GETS AWAY? Completed Game approximately 4.5 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 17 Main Game Scene Locations +8 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner I no longer play Betas, so I was expecting an amazing game aboard the Enchanted Express. Okay, one can't help but associate the "other" enchanted "northern-cold" express with this Enchanted Express. This game couldn't be further from that amazing tale, in fact, I was only aboard this amazing express 3 times for 3 seconds each and nothing about those 3 seconds reminded me of a train much less an Enchanted Christmas Train! Instead of a Tom Hanks kind of conductor, I got a perverted Grinch! This man was pure EVIL, what kind of Christmas MORAL is that? These children are not only being punished for being children, for a simple lapse in judgment, but they are also kidnapped, threatened, instilled with fear that their family will be harmed, they are forced to do whatever the evil man tells them to do, and ultimately learn that the evil adult can do dreadful things to them and their loved ones (far worse than eating or breaking a gingerbread house) and gets away with it while they live in fear for his return (which was his ultimate threat) What kind of MORAL is that? What will next years Christmas game be about, a local thug who opens up a van door and offers candy to the little boys and girls? Helper/Gadget: There is a Mouse Helper Sidekick (explaining more will be a spoiler) He is as quiet as a mouse but he does fidget a bit as he stands in the bottom left corner awaiting his helpful duties. He is used 8 different times, most of which were at the end of chapter 2 and chapter 3. Morphing Objects/Collectibles: (CE version only) There are 12 Collectible Mascots and 25 Morphing Stockings that morph at medium speed, but morph into a similar object to make it less obvious. Most of the Zoom Zones have a fairly well-hidden Puzzle Piece that allows you assemble 4 Screensaver Jigsaws (12 pcs each) This developer never lets you return to the scene to pick up missed collectibles so don't board the train if there are zoom zones still available to open. Hidden Object Scenes: There are 16 Hidden Object Scenes +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter. I wasn't impressed with any of the HO Scenes, they were blurry or fuzzy, and none of them were creative or interesting considering they had an amazing theme to work with! There are Interactive List Finds, Multiples of Items Finds, Silhouetted Shape Finds, Keywords in Sentence Finds, Find & Replace Items, Uncover Matching Pair Finds as well. There are no alternate games available. Mini-Games: There are 17 Mini-Games +8 in the CE Bonus Chapter. They did a nice job converting normal puzzles into Christmas-themed puzzles that are doable for most players. They also introduced a Super-Puzzle or multi-layered version for the first time! Here are a few of the ones I enjoyed the most: 1-A Super Puzzle requiring you to tinker with different parts of the Rube-Goldberg puzzle. 2-Use directional arrows to push and/or drop cubes to make matches that removes them. 3-A somewhat challenging version of "Blocks". 4-Marble Popping Game. 5-Find the starting point & push all buttons according to the direction the arrows point, to land on the central bells. 6-Place tokens in the correct order to complete the image, from last to first. Bonus Chapter (Collector's Edition version only) Welcome to Catstown, (population 1?0?0? ?b?i?l?l?i?o?n?, 2?0?0? ?b?i?l?l?i?o?n?, 275 billion (Ain't nobody from Catstown makin' an appointment at the local Spay/Neuter Clinic voluntarily) The King of Catstown shushed away a giant cat who accidentally crushed a few of the local residents' houses, causing the fat feline to cry so loudly the stars fell from the sky. Never fear, for Mr. Catlock Catis is here, along with his sidekick Mr. Squirrel of course. This is a much better story and certainly should have been the focus of the main game. There are only 8 Scene Locations in this average-length chapter about Morals, with 8 Mini-Games and 6 Hidden Object Scenes. You will search for the remaining 3 Collectible Mascots, 8 Morphing Stockings, and 12 Puzzle Pieces which allows you to complete the final screensaver. Collector's Edition Extra's 12 Wallpapers, 12 Concept Art Pictures, 5 Music Soundtracks, 23 Achievements, 12 Replayable Mini-Games, 13 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, Secret Room (additional search & find) 12 Collectible Mascots, 25 Morphing Stockings, 48 Zoom Zone Puzzle Pieces, 4 Screensaver Jigsaw Puzzles (12 pieces each) 3 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter and a Built-In Strategy Guide.
