Customer Reviews
Break the Curse: The Crimson Gems is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PUZZLE LOVERS REJOICE! I bought this game solely based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. The game excels in all areas. Graphics, music, storyline, voice acting, but especially the puzzles! There is a preponderance of puzzles, a supremacy of puzzles, a momentousness of puzzles! And they are some of the highest quality I've see since SAFECRACKER. An added bonus was that there no tedious HO scenes to slog through. What an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. If you enjoy a thinking game, you won't go wrong here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PUZZLE GAME!! Everything about this game is awesome. Its basically all puzzles. The graphics are beautiful, voiceovers are actually good, music isn't annoying,and the storyline is intriguing and original. There's an optional tutorial (interactive help) and choice of 2 levels of difficulty to play, hint system is competent. There is no map, but I didn't feel like I needed one. My only complaint is that it seemed a lil short but I think its because I never wanted the game to end LOL

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY - PUZZLES FOR GROWNUPS! I am a lover of all mini-games and puzzles in a HOP game, and don't care a lot for the hos, so this is really my type of game. It has a lot of replay value, for sure. I'm not sure why the new games, have such lame and easy puzzles now, and they seem like just fill-ins. I have been looking for a game with lots of challenging puzzles, and I think I found one that really exercises the old noggin. Too bad it doesn't support wide screen, but I will still buy anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A surprising WOW! Based solely on playing the demo. This is NOT your average HOG....like many of the other reviews state, this is more of a puzzle game than anything. But certainly, at least in my view, not typical. The graphics and music are fantastic and really do serve to move the game along. Interesting game premise too. Not overly simplified either - these puppies make you THINK! Would HIGHLY recommend this game for any skill level

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great puzzle/adventure game! This is not a HOG, so don't look for HOS, there aren't any! But it's a great puzzle game! There are 2 game modes. - The graphics are crisp, with wonderful colors. - The story is very interesting, there are not many dialogs. - The puzzles go from easy to really challenging! Most of them are unique. - There is a journal but no map. I missed it, since there is a lot of walking. - The hint system is good, telling you what to do next. The game has a good length; for me, without skipping, it was about 4 hours. All in all, a nice, interesting game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent graphics! And a puzzle version of a hidden object game. For a standard adventure, this is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Kind of Game This is a game I would highly recommend to anyone who plays HO games for the puzzles, not the HO scenes. I played the demo and saw no HOs at all, but lots of creative, innovative puzzles hard enough for a good challenge, but not so hard you give up and skip them. I like to try to figure out the objective of the puzzle without clicking on the directions if I can, and because of the creativity of these puzzles, that's a welcome additional challenge. I am definitely buying this one. More like this, Big Fish, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OH WOW: a puzzler adventure More please! Really like thinky games: definitely a winner. Just give it a try and see if you do too. So wonderful to get away from hunting for objects in a list. Played this on the upper level and actually did some thinking! Graphics are excellent, perhaps a bit small on my little screen. In the hunt for the water valves, I couldn't find them without help. Puzzles without hand-holding are a puzzle just to figure out how they work. A great two-fer! The birds are beautiful without being sappy and sentimental (I'm a bit tired of the beautiful woman needs help routine). Game leads nicely from scene to scene, with some scenes shut off when the work is done to prevent to much wandering. Help button is useful - YAY. No "you can't accomplish anything more here" messages. This is great because you can still forget where you are going to use something you have found. Haven't finished yet, but couldn't keep going without saying how much I was enjoying it. Wish I had more like this to look forward to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Puzzles Galore!!! No HOG's Here. Review based on Purchase and 3/4 completion of game. I can't believe the bad/low reviews! I had to stop playing and write a review. LOVE LOVE LOVE this game. If you're a fan of Hog you will probably not like this game.....there are ZERO. If you love puzzles you will be thrilled (I am!#. •There is one puzzle after another #like heavy HOG games#. •The storyline is good, not dark or gloomy, based upon unrequited love. •The graphics are painted and take some getting used to. •Hints tell you exactly what needs to be done. •Flow of game is very good; you stay in areas and can't advance until you complete tasks. You are given a task list. •Map: none, not needed •Journal •Very limited backtracking. Voice over for Lorenzo #circus owner# is excellent. Don't care much for the bird. •Puzzles: there are your usual pipes, dials that need colors to match, found one match 3 so far #again 3/4 into game#...some that are new and new twist on old standards. I have often wished for a game with just puzzles #much like hog fans get with games such as Clutter etc.). This is that game. Replay value? YES...the puzzles are literally one after the other, with just moments between. I'm off to continue playing....haven't had this much PC game fun in years!
