    I wrote this 2 years ago, when I had just started playing HOGs. It's not much, but consider it a place-saver. I'll redo it when I finish the others on my list Rolling Eyes

    A Delightful Experience

    What can I possibly say that hasn’t already been said by dozens of other reviewers? The ‘Best Graphics of 2011’ is well earned. The game is unbelievably pretty, varied in the scenes it offers, and the cleanest I’ve ever seen.

    But Beauty is not just about, well, beauty. The story continues the fairy tale theme of the original legend, and so is a little smaltzy at times. But this is made up for by the truly adorable other characters in the game – before you know it, you’re getting as soft as everyone else.

    The puzzles are well handled, smoothly integrating different locales and objectives. They vary in difficulty, leaning towards easy. The HO scenes are of course beautiful. Hint was helpful, generally speaking, and the gameplay was well paced. I thought the game a little short, though the ending was great fun – and a challenge.

    I came to this game a major fan of Phantom of the Opera, and despite giving Beauty a five star recommendation, I still like Phantom better. I think it’s the more grown up feel in Phantom that wins out over Beauty.

    Either way, how could you NOT want to own them both?

    I Recommend This Game!

    I dearly miss the Mystery Legends series and wish that Playpond would do another.

    Heck, at this point, I wish they'd just come out with another game.

    Sadly, I don't think it'll happen, having not heard from this developer for a long time.  Cry

    Hello folks.  I just got around to playing this game yesterday.  I liked it but it was very easy.  I really prefer games that challenge me more than this on.  But it was clever.  I liked the little bits of steampunk thrown in, and the graphics were beautiful.

    Can anyone tell me if the 'collector's edition' is worth it?  I don't need a spoiler, just wondering if the bonus chapter story is really interesting.  Ultimately, I like an easy game with a good story over a challenging game with a bad plot.  Smile
