Gorgeous graphics, which is this game's downfall. Objects difficult to find, making the game almost impossible to play. Had to whip out the glasses for this one, my 20,20 vision couldn't see anything... See more See less
I should have read the info as to what kind of game this was. I thought it was related to the original Antique Shop, which was a h.o. and a TM type game combined. This was strictly hidden object. One scene right after the other with a few mini games thrown in. In the h.o. scenes I found many objects very small and therefore hard to find. They do give you two bonus tools which is the magnifying glass and the lantern which help on occasion. But the hint system is the true helper when you are stuck. I thought the graphics were quite nice, and the mini games I was able to play for a change without having to skip. A little too much story thrown in for my liking and I really didn't feel that this had enough to keep my attention. I played for a half an hour and had had enough. I couldn't imagine paying money for this. See more See less
I thought this was a wonderful game, and as it is advertised as a "hidden object game" I was not surprised to see alot of HO scenes. The graphics are beautiful, and there is an untimed option so you can linger and enjoy the background. The hint button recharges quickly, and you also have a magnifying glass to enlarge areas of interest, and a lantern to brighten them, very helpful. You can also brighen or darken the entire game from the main menu. The mini-games were fun and some very challenging, but you can skip them after a little while. Overall this is an awesome game, as it does involve a book of "spirits", spooky dreams, and drifting back and forth between past and present, I would suggest palying it before letting younger ones play.

i didn't want to rate this because I thought I was just being fussy, but really, this was just terrible. Some of the hidden objects were nearly impossible to find, and overall the game just didn't have a good feel, as weird as that may sound. I stopped after about twenty minutes. Pass on this one.
