Hallowed Legends: Samhain is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 70.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hallowed Legends: Samhain SE I had forgotten just how amazing this game was. The graphics are really good, especially when you take into consideration how old this game is (2011) and they just don't make Hidden Object Puzzles like they did in Samhain. Even though this is a Standard Edition, there are still 18 Achievements to earn, the only downfall this game has is that there are only two modes of difficulty, Casual and Advanced. The word Samhain means November in Irish and in the Celtics culture, it refers to the third autumn month. During Samhain, the borders between worlds becomes thinner, the passages are revealed the hills open and all the supernatural rush out, ready to devour the human world. Robert quit his job as an investigative journalist and became obsessed with Celtic mythology conspiracies. You drop everything and head for the Celtic Festival at the All Saints Chapel after receiving a disturbing call from Robert who's apparently gotten himself in a bit of trouble. When you arrive, you see a long line of people, including Robert, heading toward the chapel at the top of the hill. Even though you were only a few minutes behind them, everyone has disappeared, with the exception of a man who appears to be dead, slumped over the trail! The Hidden Object Scenes are so well done, they are all simple Listed items, and those items are in plain view, but they have done such an exceptional job of placing the items within other objects that many of the items are tough to find. My favorite HOP requires you to first find a net and then use that net to scoop out the objects at the bottom of a crystal clear pond. The Mini Games are really entertaining. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Swap tile pieces to restore the image, right click to rotate pieces. 2) Put symbols in the right order from biggest to smallest using mathematical clues shown. 3) Connect pipe sections to allow the water to flow from top to bottom. 4) Arrange the tokens so that all the beams turn yellow, only one prism per beam. The Collector's Edition has 18 Achievements, Concept Art, Screensavers, wallpapers, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good game, good game! I got the SE as it was from the punch card but it plays like a CE - goes on and on. Great value for money (even if I had paid!). There were lots and lots of HOS and the hint button recharges fast. There were some situations where the hint sends you back and forth and you just have to use your initiative but it's not difficult. I usually regard the puzzles as an unwelcome holdup and skip when difficult - I don't welcome an IQ test in the middle of the game, but that's just me. The HOS graphics were excellent and I liked that you find something you can actually use, rather than just being a HOS for its own sake like some games. I wasn't too keen on Cernunnos being presented as a demon but hey, it's a game - and a good one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I was hesitant to purchase this at first because I thought it would be another morbid game but I bought it because it was on sale and I am glad I did because it was a nicely done game with realistic graphics and a good story to go with it.I enjoyed the game play and there wasn't too much running back and forth ..The sound effects were good and it was a nice long game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hallowed Legends Samhain This is still one of my all time favorites, and I'm an AVID casual gamer. The scenes are clear, and organized, just plain gorgeous. Great storyline too. Here is one I'd buy for all devices. Loved it start to finish. I really love hidden objects that are not hand drawn, and more clearly computer generated like this; for instance a battery really looks like a battery here. If you like this game you will love the 2nd Hallowed Legends, and you will also probably like Enigmatis, Ghosts of Maple Creek

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samhain's insane fun! After many years, this is my first review on Big Fish .. motivated by this game's near perfect blend of outstanding graphics, music, story and of course a great balance of creative puzzles and and hidden object challenges. Highly recommend this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long and Fun This game was fun, long, and not too hard. Hidden object scenes are challenging, but still manageable without using the hint. I was able to complete the game in advanced mode without using any hints or walkthroughs. It is easy to figure out each objective and find the needed objects. None of the mini-games were particularly challenging. Actually, I accidentally solved a couple of them with mindless trial-and-error clicking, without ever determining the objective of the mini-game. There were some mini-games requiring basic math, assembling fragmented pictures, remembering sequences, and ordering colored marbles. Positives: Very lengthy game. Nice visuals. Hidden object scenes are challenging but not impossible. Variety of mini-games. Negatives: If you attempt to use the wrong item, you’ll be told what type of item is meant to be used there, which is basically an unrequested hint. Lots of walking back and forth between scenes, although not traversing the entire game each time. The game is very long, many hours. It is somewhat divided into a few separate large regions, such that when you’ve completed all the tasks in one large area, you take a journey to a new area, and you cannot go back. This is artfully done, as in the transportation needed to reach the new area is disabled upon arrival. This was convenient for such a large game, and I appreciate that it was worked into the story rather than displaying a message like “Location Complete.” That said, there is a fair bit of walking back-and-forth and back-and-forth within each large area. Overall, the game is not as long or rich as Return to Ravenhurst, but you still get much more game for your money here than you do on the average HO game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME GAME START TO FINISH!!! Based on playing full game. Even with the glitch that I had to skip over one puzzle--which is beyond me to do--gave this game FIVE very well-deserved stars. Immersed myself in this sci-fi type plot based on Celtic Lore. The artwork and cut scenes are masterful. Played Advanced Mode with lots of Adventure-type activity and a generous amount--but not too many--hidden object scenes. The scenes were loaded with very cool, creative objects and blended well with story-line. There is some going back and forth, however, the areas are contained with no complicated long jumps. Wow! GREAT GAME!! Onward to Hallowed Legends:Templar! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy it! I couldn't believe this one was already on sale! You can't go wrong buying this Hallowed Legends game. The graphics are crisp and rich, the sound is not nearly as annoying as some of these games (in other words, you can keep it on!), and the gameplay is absorbing and fun. Even the story is of a higher caliber than most. While there is some of the back and forth that can drive you nuts in these games, it's not too much in the case of Samhain, so you don't get frustrated before you get anywhere. The minipuzzles are, in most cases, similar to other games, but they have a sufficient twist to make them fun. The HOS are, likewise, similar to others, but they also have a twist and the objects are also findable without a magnifying glass! As I said above - buy it! You'll not regret your choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Simply Marvelous" "AWESOME" game. I was amazed at the graphics, music, interactive play and . . . . . . Oh! Everything about this game is a steaming mist of mystery. Searching the pond, releasing the souls, to the eerie music, makes it all the more spine-chilling. Yes! Yes! My kind of game. Thanks, to the developers, producers, tech crew, designers, casting crew, directors, light crew, etc. . . etc . . . etc. "Off to Hollywood!"
