Match 3

A beauty undercut by poor reviews.
May 14, 2012

I will preface my review by saying I almost did not buy this Collector's Edition. So many of the reviews for it and for the SE were so poor that I thought I would wait and see whether there was a fifth in the series. I changed my mind, bought the CE anyway and I found it worth what I spent. The bonus game and bonus features were all I could ask for. The art work and music are as good as on the first three games. The puzzles? I found many harder, which is not a bad thing. I had no idea I was supposed to be looking out for hidden items. I will not say what; how many etc because spoilers aren't fair.....but I am going to play again and see if I can win the achievements, mostly because the game is worth playing a second, third or fourth time. For those who are children or those who are children at heart the Drawn series is a MUST, even if that is only my opinion.

another great drawn

I love the Drawn series. They are one of my favorites. The games are clever and unique. They are very different from other games and have beautiful graphics. I have played them several times, and they still offer a light heartedness that is just fine to play. Once you play one I think you'll be hooked. I know I was. I recommend all the Drawn games.

Another great Drawn game

I love the Drawn series because the games are so different to any others (I usually play HO games). The graphics are amazing and the puzzles not impossible but just taxing enough (I never have managed to do the candles in the library of the second game) without skipping. I thought Trail of Shadows certainly lived up to the previous ones graphically. There were some magical visual moments. And it was fun to play with a bit of humour -- pigs to collect (why pigs?) and I really liked the book pages and the croquet match. I didn't find the story quite as compelling as the first two, but I did enjoy the puzzles though I didn't find any of them as challenging as some in the previous game. Trail of Shadows seemed to end sooner than the others but I don't know if that was really so or just my impression. Some people posted that the game was buggy but the first time I played it it was fine. It hung a few times after I installed the update but I think it's stretching the computer with the great graphics.

Another Work of Art

I'm a long standing fan of the Drawn series and so I didn't hesitate to spend a little extra on the collectors edition. I was not disappointed. As always, the artwork and soundtrack are top quality and the puzzles are creative, though a little too easy. I did feel that this one was too short. The first two took longer to play and some of the puzzles more challenging. I recommend the whole series.

Beautiful Addition to the Series
November 17, 2011

Drawn: Trail of Shadows Collector's Edition is as beautiful, lush and as brilliant as its predecessors. The magic overtook me the minute I started the game and heard the first musical notes. The story begins with Franklin and a very young Iris, sitting in front of a fire. Franklin is telling Iris the story of a boy who lived many years prior, who had "the gift" like Iris - the ability to draw pictures and have them come to life. This game is the story of that boy and his kidnapping by an evil wizard. There is an option that allows the user to control screen movement (an important one for those who suffer vertigo or similar dizziness/nausea from screen panning). The game played very well for me and has all the Drawn elements I've come to love - beautiful graphics, enchanting music, wonderful storytelling, charming and fantastic puzzles, pop-up books, and achievements. The use of cut scenes to tell the story and tie everything together was brilliant, voiced-over with the wonderful narrative by "Franklin". Some of the puzzles/games are amazing. The croquet game - I can't imagine what it took to put that together. I also enjoyed the little "arcade" drawing game and, of course, the pop-up book pages were such a treat with all of the pull tabs and little hiding places. All in all, a fantastic game and a must for everyone's collection

This game holds a special place in my heart.Love the graphics,sounds,the challenges.This game is so colorful and so waterpaint it's fantastic.The sounds are in tune with the game and the voice overs are very well acted.The challenges are excellent.Storyline is intended for younger audiences but it can be enjoyed by adults as well.This a very beautiful game all around.Can't wait for another Drawn game.

Gorgeous- wish it went on longer

The Drawn folks have brought us another winner. It?s a prequel of sorts, about a young boy who can draw images that come to life. Gameplay is intuitive, and once again the image quality is absolutely gorgeous. The music is also incredible, haunting and beautiful. However , my absolute favorite thing about the game is the diary. Rather than just a scrapbook of images and tasks, it?s an interactive pop-up book. There are pull tabs, sliders, wheels, all things the player can interact with. It?s got the elegance of Masahiro Chatani and the whimsy and technical skill of Robert Sabuda. I actually caught myself gasping once or twice at a page. Felt like a kid again, but with an adult?s appreciation for the incredible amount of work required to create something on this level. My only downside is that the game is too short! I found that playing it only took a few hours. As always, the Drawn folks leave us wanting more. There?s lots of replayability?I?ve played it twice completely through since I bought it yesterday, and will continue to go back and play parts, if not all if it, again. (Love the Easter Egg design- really enjoyable). I?d highly recommend this to anyone who likes a game that?s more than solving mysteries or killing zombies (though I like those, too!).

great game

i love the gameplay and the visual/music of the game, very challenging puzzles. I'm looking forward to Drawn 4.

January 28, 2012

This is an amazing Drawn game, probably the most interesting one of them all! I love the pop up storybook. It is extremely fun and most of all, I love how you can actually look around the scenes. Cleverly and beautifully done!

Waiting on instalment number 4
November 15, 2011

Number 3 in the trilogy is just as mesmerising as the others and just as gorgeous to watch. The graphics are what has always attracted me to the DRAWN series, as well as unusual puzzles to work out. This third one is a tad different because it takes you out of the city for the first time and you pretty much stay in the paintings. But what a landscape awaits you. I look forward to number 4 but please keep the difficulty level as high as you can - they are worth every braincell to solve.
