Game In Brief BASED ON COMPLETED GAME
Last count, 262 people had posted their reviews for this game on Big Fish. So there really can’t be anything left to tell you that you haven’t heard before.
Here are the high points for me about one of my top ten favourites of all time:
*Exciting and breathtaking videos, full of spectacle, sound and activity.
*Excellent graphics and sound track. Especially the ‘chimes’ music.
*Delightful animations of unusual assistants and impressive bad guys.
*Interesting and different story with hidden complexities.
*Choose your own ending!
My only complaints are with a draggy cursor (okay with system one but not as much fun), and an inventory panel that is not lockable.Bonus Content Review
The main game ends satisfactorily. The bonus chapter carries on easily with either ending, and is not at all needed for either. This bonus was disappointing. After such a brilliant game, the chapter has only 1 old location and 4 new ones, 4 new HOPs and 4 new puzzles. It took me only 30 mins to complete, and even allowing that I skipped 2 puzzles, I only did so way after the skip became available. The story was a total nothing. Achievements did not continue through this chapter.
I love Elephant’s wallpapers because they are actually designed, not just glorified screen shots. You get the necessary room on either side to have a couple of icons! The concept art is nice too, and you can save it. As well, there are replayable videos and music.
ACHIEVEMENTS & COLLECTIBLES
There are 10 achievements, 5 story related, 5 accomplishments (some of these have levels). There are also collectibles, with their own ‘show case’. These are the 26 miniatures of various characters in this game and from other Elephant games. Excellent fun, each different. (And if you find you’re unable to close a close up, look for one there.)
FAMOUS LAST WORDS
Brilliant game, the other bonus content makes up for the offending bonus chapter, I’m thrilled to own this game.I Recommend This Game!
