"Simply Marvelous"
November 27, 2011

"AWESOME" game. I was amazed at the graphics, music, interactive play and . . . . . . Oh! Everything about this game is a steaming mist of mystery. Searching the pond, releasing the souls, to the eerie music, makes it all the more spine-chilling. Yes! Yes! My kind of game. Thanks, to the developers, producers, tech crew, designers, casting crew, directors, light crew, etc. . . etc . . . etc. "Off to Hollywood!"

Based on playing full game. Even with the glitch that I had to skip over one puzzle--which is beyond me to do--gave this game FIVE very well-deserved stars. Immersed myself in this sci-fi type plot based on Celtic Lore. The artwork and cut scenes are masterful. Played Advanced Mode with lots of Adventure-type activity and a generous amount--but not too many--hidden object scenes. The scenes were loaded with very cool, creative objects and blended well with story-line. There is some going back and forth, however, the areas are contained with no complicated long jumps. Wow! GREAT GAME!! Onward to Hallowed Legends:Templar! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Challenging fun

I loved this game, Graphics are amazing, storyline is compelling, Puzzles are challenging. Overall this is a brilliant game and I would reccomend it to anyone who loves adventures and are reasonably good at puzzles solving.

Great Game

I was hesitant to purchase this at first because I thought it would be another morbid game but I bought it because it was on sale and I am glad I did because it was a nicely done game with realistic graphics and a good story to go with it.I enjoyed the game play and there wasn't too much running back and forth ..The sound effects were good and it was a nice long game.

This is still one of my all time favorites, and I'm an AVID casual gamer. The scenes are clear, and organized, just plain gorgeous. Great storyline too. Here is one I'd buy for all devices. Loved it start to finish. I really love hidden objects that are not hand drawn, and more clearly computer generated like this; for instance a battery really looks like a battery here. If you like this game you will love the 2nd Hallowed Legends, and you will also probably like Enigmatis, Ghosts of Maple Creek

Long and Fun
May 30, 2012

This game was fun, long, and not too hard. Hidden object scenes are challenging, but still manageable without using the hint. I was able to complete the game in advanced mode without using any hints or walkthroughs. It is easy to figure out each objective and find the needed objects. None of the mini-games were particularly challenging. Actually, I accidentally solved a couple of them with mindless trial-and-error clicking, without ever determining the objective of the mini-game. There were some mini-games requiring basic math, assembling fragmented pictures, remembering sequences, and ordering colored marbles. Positives: Very lengthy game. Nice visuals. Hidden object scenes are challenging but not impossible. Variety of mini-games. Negatives: If you attempt to use the wrong item, you?ll be told what type of item is meant to be used there, which is basically an unrequested hint. Lots of walking back and forth between scenes, although not traversing the entire game each time. The game is very long, many hours. It is somewhat divided into a few separate large regions, such that when you?ve completed all the tasks in one large area, you take a journey to a new area, and you cannot go back. This is artfully done, as in the transportation needed to reach the new area is disabled upon arrival. This was convenient for such a large game, and I appreciate that it was worked into the story rather than displaying a message like ?Location Complete.? That said, there is a fair bit of walking back-and-forth and back-and-forth within each large area. Overall, the game is not as long or rich as Return to Ravenhurst, but you still get much more game for your money here than you do on the average HO game.

Play It Again Samhain!
December 31, 2011

After playing this game (and the fabulous "Enimatis:The Ghosts of Maple Creek") I am never going to give any game 5 stars unless they match the elegance, creativity, challenge, and all out FUN of these two games! Samhain is what I'm looking for as an expert player. The locations are wonderful. The challenge to remember many tasks is what keeps a game interesting to me. There is a bit of a time lag when you choose a new location or HOG, but I can live with it when the game is just so good!

Samhain's insane fun!
November 18, 2011

After many years, this is my first review on Big Fish .. motivated by this game's near perfect blend of outstanding graphics, music, story and of course a great balance of creative puzzles and and hidden object challenges. Highly recommend this game!
