Time Mysteries: The Ancient Spectres Collector's Edition is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 72.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great This is a beautiful,fun game. It is long and you do have a lot of running around to do but it was a lot of fun. I hated it when it ended. I can't wait for another one. I hope it was as good as this one. Average amount of HOGs. Puzzles were hard but not to hard. Storyline was great. Traveling around was fun and easy. You should try this game. It will grab you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth it!!! This is a fun, engaging and challenging HOPA with great graphics and a really good story line! I consider myself pretty good at these types of games and usually play on hardcore or expert mode, but in this game was so much of a challenge that I had to regularly toggle back to regular mode and use the walk through and hints! For me some of the main highlights of this game were that it is non-linear, uses a lot of time travel where an action at one date can change the same scene in another date, gives a great challenge by providing only general objectives that can require a series of creative solutions to achieve, uses very cleverly and sometimes fiendishly hidden objects outside of regular HO scenes and also allows you to toggle back and forth between a mini-game when you get stuck in a hard HO junk pile which happened plenty for me. Another feature that I really liked about this game is that although I usually don't enjoy HO scenes very much, this game was challenging enough that I'd get excited when I'd find another HO scene because I'd be so curious as to what object it would give me to help me on any of the numerous puzzles that I needed to complete to move ahead. This ranks right up there with some of the best games I've played. Highly recommended!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good game! I played in expert mode but there are still sparkles for the HOS. The storyline is complex but interesting. You travel in time and there is a lot of going back and forth, and I liked that. The graphics and the HOS are very clear. The puzzles are challenging. I was happy to have the strategy guide, since it happened that I didn't find an object. The hint system (not in the HOS) wasn't very helpful but it added to the challenge. There is not much interacting with other characters. It took me a bit more than 5 hours for the main part. The bonus chapter is not really necessary, a bit too easy and I needed 40 min. to finish it. But the main part is more than enough! It's never boring and I had a great time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow how did I miss this the First time around This is just based on the trial, and that's all it took, for me to buy it. So don't miss the deal of the special sale !! If you like creepy, and beautiful artwork, I am enjoying the story, there are some new twists to it. I can't think of any part I don't like. I highly reccomend this game !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from top class hidden object game with fun Normally I don't like to write review but i think here i need to do this work because this game really amazed me. i thought it just sample type hidden object game but while playing i invent this is not only funny also challenging. the game’s major setting is in the 1800’s, you’re first introduced to a dilapidated, abandoned mansion, a ghostly spirit is haunting your travels and the game is quite moody overall You will get high quality graphics and sound quality in this game. The storyline also very hard, you need to provide full attention during play this game for successful mission. One think, this game conclusion is not expected, it can be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, Challenging and not your usual HOG I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It's not your run-of-the-mill hidden object/adventure/puzzle game. It's unusual in that you time travel, and have an option to play a match 3-type game in lieu of finding well-hidden objects in the HO scenes. There is a time machine in which you can jump to the scenes where you need to find objects rather than running all over the place trying to find them. It's a long game and well worth the price of the CE. I can't wait to play this one again and I usually don't do this right away. My only complaint is that in the Mac version, I was able to play the optional match-3 game twice without the game quitting. (It kept quitting on the match-3, so I just stopped playing it.) This is highly unusual for BFG Mac games; in fact, it's the only one I've had this problem with. But this is an issue for BFG tech support. It did NOT detract from the game at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite HO-Adventure game with nice bonus chapter I fall in love with this game, it worths CE for me completely. I played on Expert mode (no sparkles,much-click penalty, long hit recharge), used hint few times only (and you can't get much from hint on expert - if there are nothing to do on current and adjacent scenes, hint shows on time device only and you have no real clue were to go), never used skip button. At first I was sure it's other dark mystic terrifying game I'll delete after 5 try minutes as many other, but I gave it a chance - and game took me completely instead! - I'm ready to give 6 stars for fun - The story is amazing for me, bonus chapter unexpected and cool. - I like that idea with time device - saves from long travelling, and add some fun game moments like doing some at past changing current time etc. - art level is nice for me, but some scenes were too dark and hard to play in broad daylight - music suits the game completely, I like it - 1st such game when I liked HO scenes really (they annoy me mostly during adventure, I prefer pure HO games). Some HO scenes used twice - I like this. Interactive objects at HO scenes ware really fun sometimes. Player can play mini game like match 3 instead of HO scene, every win reveal 1 HO object - puzzles and mini-games were OK - only 1 thing was annoying - sometimes the only thing player can do is new HO place, appeared after solving some problem, and there are no clue were it is, we can only walk throw places and times looking for it; - this game isn't for family playing, the story line and some scenes is a bit fearful for small kids (nothing really terrible or unsuitable, but this isn't game for play with my 5 year son on my knees) - I give 4 to level of challenge because I'd prefer it would be a bit harder - long enough and I want continuation!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hidden Object Game I just finished this game and enjoyed it thouroughly. Full compliments of adjustments in options for those that find that importnt. I thought this was a game that could have been ordinary, but was done in a very clever way. Some new things to experience and think about, but not to difficult. The mechanics of the game were a bit different from the usual fare, but in a good way. Great graphics. It played very well on my 17 inch laptop and had no problems finding objects and completing tasks. A very good Iinteractive hidden object adventure game and I highly recommend you spend your hard earned money on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game The CE is worth the price just for one of the HOS in the additional play--everything moves-really cool! Graphics in the rest of the game are very good. Some of the HOS are interactive. If you pick up an interactive item and can't find out how to use it, a right-click releases the object. Some objects are easy to find, others are more subtle. Story line is a bit fuzzy imo, but then time travel is pretty fuzzy, isn't it? The time machine can tell you where to go next if you get stuck, hints are helpful, but not too much so, although hints are vague for some of the mini-games. Strategy guide isn't needed often, but does help for the mini-games with vague help hints. Music was OK for me, although it got awfully boring while working on the harder mini-games. Overall, this is a GREAT GAME!!
