5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
With excellent beautifully drawn graphics and really detailed scenes this game follows in similar quality and style to Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera Collector's Edition (PC CD) and Penny Dreadfuls Sweeney Todd Collector's Edition (PC CD). Your challenge to rescue the Beast is filled with lots of hidden object scenes, which are realistic and contain, sometimes,...

3.0 out of 5 stars A little too childish
The graphics of this game are very good, it looks lovely. The game mechanics are good too, with hidden object scenes and puzzles of a decent level of difficulty. There are two things about this game that I don't like though. Firstly, most hidden object games can be very 'hand holding', giving you too much information so you can work through them too easily. As I like a...

This review is from: Mystery Legends: Beauty and the Beast Collector's Edition (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
With excellent beautifully drawn graphics and really detailed scenes this game follows in similar quality and style to Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera Collector's Edition (PC CD) and Penny Dreadfuls Sweeney Todd Collector's Edition (PC CD). Your challenge to rescue the Beast is filled with lots of hidden object scenes, which are realistic and contain, sometimes, some small and tricky items. Throughout you have mini games to play which are reasonably challenging, a few battle type scenes which are more arcade style and a target to collect roses, which you'll need to finish the game. You have lots of things which you need to collect and use along the way. You have a map of the scenes plus a built in strategy guide which, rather than being a walk through, prompts you by questions. There are three modes of play - easy through expert and I played in normal mode. This is great as it means you have a game here which everyone in the family can play from beginners or children who may want lots of help through to those wanting more of a challenge. The bonus section is also well worthwhile playing. Another great game by PlayPond. PS caution for anyone who might have a spider phobia...

Don't usually leave reviews on these hidden object games as they are pretty run of the mill, however I felt compelled to write about this one, I've played upwards of 250 hidden object games and would rate this in the top three, the graphics are superb and the gameplay is much more than just hidden objects, I guarantee you will love this game.

This review is from: Mystery Legends: Beauty and the Beast Collector's Edition (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The graphics of this game are very good, it looks lovely. The game mechanics are good too, with hidden object scenes and puzzles of a decent level of difficulty. There are two things about this game that I don't like though. Firstly, most hidden object games can be very 'hand holding', giving you too much information so you can work through them too easily. As I like a challenge, I tend to play them without reading the help text that usually appears at the top of the screen when objects are clicked on. This game did not give me that choice though, as the help text appears right at the cursor when an object is clicked. Secondly, it's just a little bit too childish, too 'twee'. When I click on a tree that has fallen down, and see a message like 'Oh no, a foul disease has felled this tree, where will Mr Nutkins live now?', as an adult, that tends to grate a bit.
Apart from these two things that do not appeal to me personally, it's a decent enough game.

This game is a bit on the easy side, perhaps being more aimed at children. There are no really challenging puzzles (though one took a bit of time), but there are plenty of objects to find in order to progress in the game. The painted graphics are beautiful, making it very worthwhile even if you do get through it rather quickly.

Great graphics, evolving storyline and new places to go, good hidden object scenes which were not repetitive to be revisited time after time with just another selection of things to find, new scenes to navigate and things to collect. Good mini puzzles. Not too easy, not too hard. To me this it what good all round hidden object games are all about. Also recommend Phantom of the Opera

I have just finished this game. Good story, although rather predictable. I think the best bit was killing the spiders. I found the game rather short, but perhaps it's just the I am getting used the the format of these games.

Bought this and Phantom of the Opera together. They are really good games. They are more challenging than the usual hidden object games. If you like them I would recommend this game for you to try
