Customer Reviews
Mystery of the Ancients: Curse of the Black Water is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good story, with no meandering. I like strong stories and nice backgrounds, and I can forgive a lot to games that offer those things. This one also has nice games that I barely had to skip and good HOS. I liked that you had to solve problems in only a limited number of rooms, and when you were done, you had to go to a different set of rooms, and not backtrack (which always irritates me - when I have an object and have to go to EVERY place so that I figure out what to do with it.. And all the hint tells me is "go to another place" I like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kept me entertain throughout the entire game. I finished in 4 plus hours, and enjoyed every minute. For those that get bored easily, this is your game, plus, you become a McGuyver type person, in some of the quests. Just a note, be VERY precise with the clock, is all I'm saying. Fun and newer types of mini games, hog's not hard at all, and I never felt there was too many as the artwork, and placement was superb. I did not feel cheated in time, as the game is that good, however for those more irritated at quick games, use this a free credit. I usually dislike shorter games, immensely, but this is one that I did not mind in the least. I have no ulterior reasons for writing my reviews, just to let others know, they will enjoy this game. The games vary in challenge levels, so it doesn't matter which type you like, there are games for all. Plus I'm a fix it person, and loved the McGuyver like parts, mostly in the beginning. Have fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrified:) I have a vivid imagination. That being said, I had no business playing this game. But guess what, I played this game. It's dark and gloomy. I was pins and needles during the whole game; expecting to see this huge beast around every corner or un-investigated room. I loved this game. If you like thrills and chills, play it! You'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Best! Great game! It has all the great ingredients for a 5 star game. It is visually good with varying sound effects that do not overpower the gameplay. The games are varied and interesting. They are varied on skill level from beginner to intermediate. Nothing to challenging. The length of the game is good. Not too short. Just enough time to feel like you have really played your moneys worth. Very well thought out game and interesting to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it is a nice game it is really a nice game that you shouldn't miss. There are many fun mini games and the storyline is quite clear. Map is useful so you don't have to walk forward/backward a lot. However I did get lost at some point and the hint is not useful. The final chapter ends too fast which is a weak.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great fun and you meet posidan! a good game over all. great graphics and I don't usually pay much attention to graphics. map and hint work really well. fun creppy tentacles keep getting in your way. you save the world of course and your friends. I don't use sound so can't rate that. some puzzles were a bit too hard for me so skipped a lot but over all I enjoyed and recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better HO games I really enjoyed this game as it lasted quite a while containing lots of interesting puzzles and interactive HO scenes without there being too many of them to make the game itself too tedious. There is also an interactive map telling you where there are still things to do and take you straight there which I found very useful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game: long playing time Thought this game was very challenging. Graphics, sounds were awesome; puzzles were difficult but not impossible. Loved the map because it allows you to go to necessary sites without traveling around and around the game...My memory fails me sometimes, and I can be trapped for hours if not for a good map. I enjoyed playing, and it did give one a long playing time; will buy another game by Mariaglorum soon,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Story I enjoyed playing this one as it is relatively easy to follow.There is a map to show you where you are and in what area there is something that needs to be done.This is really helpful.The graphics and HO scenes are good and the background sounds are fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Alright so what we are dealing with is a Sea monsters game set in a sea side town. The puzzles and hidden objects scenes are all well done along with the pacing of the game, sounds and graphics are nice- I really liked the artwork in a lot of the scenes. At the end of the day its a fantastic HO game and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. If your picky in the HO games you play and only want to play the cream of the crop this is one of the ones that is it; at least that is what I found and many other reviews agree.
