Mythic Wonders: The Philosopher's Stone Collector's Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Wondrous and Beautiful So many others have commented on the story line I have no more to add. I've only spent maybe four hours or so playing but couldn't wait until I finished to write a review, it's so fantastic! Is this a game as much as it is art? This genre of game is fairly new to me, I've done the simpler HOG's but not these adventure types. I have some of the Redemption Cemetery and Dark Tales series but haven't done much with them yet. So I find myself getting lost in the maze of locations sometimes. Memory seems to play a substantial part in navigating around. This game is absolutely engaging, with beautiful, and sometimes breathtaking scenes. A mix of sci-fi and fantasy. Completely relaxing to play, even when confronted with difficult puzzles etc., mostly logic based, which range from fairly easy to very difficult. But this is a case where one puzzle would be easy for one person but difficult for another. The scenes are often so beautiful that I am in no rush to proceed. The HO's are nice because there are always several interactive objects where instead of simply finding a thing, sometimes you have to do preliminary tasks in order to make the primary object accessible. The voice-over talking is fairly minimal. The music is very relaxing for the most part, it does change its character to adapt to various situations. One of the few games where the music is not annoying, distracting, boring and super repetitive. There are a number of games where I turn the music off ('cause I can't stands it noway nohow nowhere!) and either play CD's or just use the sound effects. I thought this type of game would be one where once you've played through it you're pretty much done and trash it into your game archives; but I could play through this repeatedly. As of this writing, it has not received a one-star rating. Wish some scenes were available as wallpaper. I hope they come up with an expanded series/sequels of this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was this all a dream or not? You be the judge! I finished this collector's edition in hardcore mode and I can tell you it's a great game. Big Fish and some other reviewers have explained the storyline quite well, so I'll get to the point. I don't need wallpaper, concept art, or screensavers. I've got enough on my computer and devices as it is. However, you can also save the music which I really like. That's optional. If you do, be aware that you may have to change the format of the music's audio files upon accessing it. Just be patient, it will work. I saved them in mp3 format. The music was very original and pleasing to the ear. The game play was quite interesting; the developers have put a lot of thought into this game--incorporating science and astronomy in the mix, making for a cool game, for sure. Previously I finished a 5-star game, and I'm also giving this one a 5-star. I really do believe that the developers are catching on to what we want in a 'perfect' game nowadays. The one negative is that in one of the HOS you had to find parts of a leaf and bugs, and I couldn't tell which was the bug or the leaf--I did play this game on my laptop. The scenes, especially the HOS, were panoramic, thereby, in my opinion, made objects appear smaller. However, the artwork was wonderful. The puzzles are tricky and clever and there is a lot to do. So you get a lot for your money. You're not bombarded with cut scenes but when they do occur the VOS/acting is pretty good. Good map and I had no need for the Strategy Guide, although it's good to have, and an okay hint button. When accessing the bonus game, I chose the picture on my right and was able to proceed without any problems. I would recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better as the story progressed When I played the demo, I liked it but wasn't sure it was worth the purchase price. I went ahead and bought it, and boy what a wonderful game this is! You go to 5 different worlds with a sci-fi/futuristic theme.The graphics are stunning. The HOS are crisp and not over-cluttered. The mini-puzzles were great, they weren't easy but just took some patience to think about the solutions. I took my time enjoying the beautiful sci-fi scenes, as they were gorgeous. It probably took me 5-6 hrs to complete the main game. I haven't done the bonus chapter yet. Finding the morphing objects was just enough difficulty. I did consult the strategy guide several times. This will probably be one of the best of the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GREAT GREAT One of the best games I have played all year. The story was different with a few twists and turns. Graphics are beautiful and loved the HOS. Some games were simple, some puzzles difficult. I highly recommend this game as it is very engaging and has lots of things to do. This was thoroughly enjoyable and I was not bored ever and even enjoyed the bonus chapter. Highly recommend you give it a go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Re: Bonus Chapter I loved this game. It was really fun to play and the visual quality was fantastic. That being said, when I finished the main game, I was excited to start the bonus chapter. When the two "boxed" pictures came up, of the main female character, I chose the one on the left. It WAS NOT the bonus game. It was the start to the main game(again). IMO, it should have prompted "Are you sure you want to play this game again?" at the very least. Once you click on it, you do not gain access to the bonus chapter, unless you play the entire game again, which I did and actually, I loved it the second time around anyway! I correctly chose the right side picture and enjoyed the bonus game as well. I hope this helps. I know I'm not alone. Unless I missed something--let us know. Thanks and have fun!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Philosopher's Stone With Boulder Potential! Your Uncle finally figured out the sequence to open the portal into other dimensions, problem is he couldn't wait to enter the portal and now he's in trouble. You follow him through the portal into a mystical and stunningly beautiful world, but you soon find out the inhabitants don't want you there. Now you have to subdue three headed creatures, deadly fauna and alien creatures, and search for clues as to your Uncle's whereabouts. There are only two modes of difficulty, casual has lots of help and easier mini games where the expert mode has few hints and harder puzzles. There are 20 morphing objects that are very well hidden and slow morphing (at least on expert mode). HOS are interactive list finds as well as finding the matching items as shown on your list. The mini games are good with the right amount of challenge. One of my personal favorites was trying to match up stone wings onto a stationary bird pillar, if you moved one horizontal wing, others would also move. This is the kind of game that has you wishing you were there and keeps you interested from start to finish, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTELY FASCINATING! i found this game to be truly fantastical ... the artwork is just dreamlike! ... while there isn't a lot of "excitement" there is a lot of unusual experiences ... the music was very relaxing, but the TRAVEL was an out-of-this-world vacation ... i absolutely LOVED the feeling of FLYING in the ship/balloon sequence ... storyline is wonderful ... i can't wait to play the bonus chapter .. thank you big fish!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a Mystic Wonder of a Game First I want to thank Big Fish Games. I just lost my husband and thanks to BFG I spent nights playing the games when I couldn't sleep. There is so much to do in this game. There are 25 achievements both in accomplishments related to the game itself along with the normal "3 puzzles no skip" type. The hos were not overly junky and the items were not too hard to find. The puzzles were thoughtful and well done. There are also 20 morphing objects that are not all that obvious. An artifact which gains new powers as you go along is "your helper" thoughout the The music is not annoying and fits well into the background. The story itself was fun. You and Uncle Alfred are working on a project together. A portal to other realms. When he disappears, you go through the portal to find him. You immediately meet up with someone, and are not sure if he's good or bad, just that he thinks you are a thief and that you must leave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Journey Through Portals to Magical Worlds You play the game as Emma and the story begins with a dream or is it a nightmare. You dream that your Uncle Alfred is in trouble and awaken knowing something is wrong. When you call him and get no answer, then you know your uncle is in trouble and take the next train to visit him to see for yourself that he is okay. When you arrive at his home, Uncle Alfred is not there and you suspect that perhaps he has activated the portal that you and Uncle Alfred have been working on. Who knows what l lies beyond the portal and if Alfred has indeed entered the portal, then your dream has become reality. Step through the portal and into the magical realms beyond as you try to find your uncle and discover the mysteries awaiting you. The graphics are excellent and depict the magical worlds that exist beyond the portal. The sound package is very good including voiceovers, excellent music and environmental sounds. The voiceovers are not lip-synced and the devs get around this with lots of self-talk as most of the initial dialogue is Emma speaking her thoughts. Maybe later in the game there will be some actual conversation with others. You have a journal located on the lower right of your screen. When you open your journal you will see tabs for notes, objectives and map so your journal is where you will want to go to easily access all three types of information. You can also access the map by opening the map scroll on the lower left if you wish. There are various types of interactive HOS, some are the standard list type while others may include find certain numbers of specific items or find the item pictured somewhere in the scene. I really enjoyed the HOS and found that the ones where we need to find a specific number of items also include some interaction but you are left to your own devices to figure out the interaction required, which is a puzzle in itself. Now, IMHO, where The Philosopher’s Stone becomes an excellent game is with the puzzles. Although we will find some of our favorite type puzzles, there are many that are different. Some puzzles are cryptic in nature and they are excellent. For me the game was an instant buy based on the quality of the puzzles I encountered. I particularly enjoyed solving the logic type puzzles required to activate the portals. Throughout the game you will find 20 morphing objects and earn 25 achievements. The remainder of the CE content is standard fare. Whether this game is a CE value or not is up to you to decide; however, I love it because of its many differences from the same types of HOPA games we normally see. With great puzzles, interesting HOPs and the gameplay, this is one of the best games to come along in recent weeks. I am sure the game will be at the top of my list of best games in 2014. As always, I recommend that you try the game to see if you like it.
