Customer Reviews
Magnificent Seal is rated 2.1 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worse game I ever tried! Screens are fuzzy - confusing! Story line hard to follow. - don't bother with this game when there are better ones to play.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Old School and pure HOP I couldn't even finish the demo. You go room to room playing HOS. There are no directional hints. Hint only works in the HOS. Seems like something from many years past. I gave up as I couldn't see where this was going. I didn't even like the HOS which were list type. Most of the objects were very easy to find. Items in the tapestry HOS were a little more difficult to find. I just got bored. You should try the demo before purchasing. For me this is a no buy -- not even if it was free I don't think I would play it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like Velvet Keys, Minus Most of the Fun First, a confession: I managed to get through only 17 minutes of the demo. On to business. If someone had told me this game was actually from 2009 - or earlier - I would have believed them, except that airplanes replace hot dogs as the ubiquitous object. They are in virtually every puzzle. There's no ability to select a difficulty level, but that's probably because active areas indicating puzzles - or sometimes just places to pick up an item - sparkle so blatantly that you'd have to be unconscious to miss them, which is good, because the rooms themselves are massive. Without the sparkles, you'd never find the puzzles. Oddly, sparkles go inactive once they've located a puzzle even if you're not able to solve it yet. As with old games, there's a 'helper' character who stays resolutely in one place and refuses to move; he's supposedly supervising workers. Since there are no workers in any of the scenes, I've chosen to believe that the helper character is suffering from hallucinations. The graphics are actually quite pretty, but they're highly repetitive. The novelty of searching for objects on a tapestry wears thin pretty quickly, especially since you can pretty much guess what the 'hidden' objects are without referencing the list. In scenes where you're searching a room instead of a tapestry, the game has a frustrating tendency to not indicate when there might be objects that move (such as cabinet doors), and does not distinguish objects that must be discovered in drawers, etc. The opening storyline narration was clearly written by someone who doesn't speak English as a first, or possibly even second, language, though I was delighted to hear that a background character was "executed to death." (I'm not pro-death penalty, by the way.) The narration also tells us that the missing seal is magical, and guarantees that any wish made with it is granted "sooner or later." The same may be said of my favorite plush penguin; leaving out the time scale greatly enhances a given object's perceived magical abilities. There is one innovation: you can dispense with the mouse for moving from scene to scene if you have a webcam; you can control scrolling and movement with your eyes. I don't have a webcam, so I can't report on how well this feature works. There is no map indicated open or closed locations or active hotspots (although the game does scold you if you try to go into a closed area), so you'll be doing a lot of side-to-side scrolling. If this were 2009, or even 2011, my rating would be much higher. If you long for the confusing storylines and stilted graphics of the Cate West mysteries, enjoy extremely repetitive gameplay, and have a fondness for inexplicable side plots, this is the game for you. Otherwise, you'll probably be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is This For Real? OMG is it 1994 again? Never seen anything like it on BF.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from YUCK I think that with out a doubt this by far the very worst game that we have ever played we kept+laying thinking that it would get better, but no, it just got worse. counting the number of games that we have reviewed plus the 1,000+ games that we have purchased from Big Fish over the last 10 years, this has got to take first place for the very worst. Don't even waste your time playing the demo.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor game. don't waste time or money i seldom review a game until i have played it through. i only played 28 minutes of this demo and i really don't like it at all. it was boring!!!! the music was bad. definately needs a lot of work. HO is one of my two favorite genres. this was HO , but nothing i liked. i WOULD NOT RECOMMEND this game until it is updated!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bedtime Game Trust me, this game is so slow and game-play so stilted, you'll be asleep before you know it. Oh, wait - that's not why you buy games, is it? Never mind. That's how this one works. The storyline may be great, but we see only the barest outline before plunging into cartoonish scenes with massive quantities of HOPs and a few simplistic mini-games. The English translation is only fair. The music is just bad. All the problems already reviewed are only too real. Skip this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WHAT MAGNIFICENT SEAL???? Picture not very well focused - hard on the eyes. Music very monotonous. No verbal interaction, figures extremely static. In fact the (who is he?) 'overseer' (guy in charge of the workmen?# just stands in the lobby the whole time not doing anything. As one of the other reviewers said - hint only available in HOS, which include a lot of shadow figures. No choice in level of difficulty. I actually managed to make it up to 28 minutes of play #including a 5 minute phone call which I answered# before I gave up in disgust and deleted the game. If this is the best you can do after this many years and advances in software what is there left for us to look forward to? Will the future be as bad as this game suggests? I should have realised the game would be bad when I saw that the game itself was only 114 MB. On a par with the most basic match 3 etc.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame On You, Big Fish! This "game" is a disgrace to the Big Fish library. Did someone find it where it had been lost since the millenium? Appalling graphics (they're fuzzy) absolutely no challenge to finding objects. Come on, Big Fish - it's bad enough that all we see day after day after day are new HOG's (where are the time management games?) but to offer us this? No thanks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Magnificent Seal Dreadful. All previous ratings are generous. Poor graphics, awful music, no story, no directional clues....almost as bad as the dreadful Coronation St game!!
