Hi guys. I just got this game in the mail yesterday and can't wait to play it. I thought I'd post and see if anyone else is playing it and what you think of it so far?

I'm playing several others first so it'll be a little while before I get to it and I'm just curious how it is! smile

Thanks guys!
Cat

Beautiful graphics, some fun historical locations, the game is set (as I recall) in the 1930s. Stylish ambiance. Variety of puzzles, some of which are quite difficult -- especially the timed slider. Good cast of characters, though it would be nice to get to know them in a bit more depth. We probably will, given the game's ending. laugh

I agree with JohnBoy..

There were just to many Puzzles..At every turn.
But all in All ..I did like the game...

Puzzles were hard...Especially that darn Slider Puzzle on the Ship wink

JB -- did you like playing poker? (I'm terrible at card games, so I struggled.)

Darleen -- the slider was hard enough without having to dash away from it every few seconds to keep it from resetting. Maybe the developers assumed that all adventurers can do sliders in their sleep by now?

smile I played and reviewed this game a while ago and loved it. I even liked the slider puzzle once I figured out what I was supposed to do. I'm still praying for a sequel.

Yes Becky....I Think that was about the most Challenging for me was that stupid slider.

Maybe cause I am good at sliders ....And it got me upset when that Bouncer kept bothering me
from finishing the puzzle rolleyes

Cailyn,

I hated the poker game Becky and I hate sliders much less a timed one. I hated the bee puzzle and I got the last puzzle on the third try. Purely luck! lol

I also solved the docking the ship puzzle on my own but again not my kind of puzzle.

Thanks for your opinions guys. I'm not a huge puzzle person, but I'm going to dive in anyway and see what happens. No doubt I'll be back here on the Hints section for help later on! LOL

I still think the timed slider is a bad idea in game design. They should avoid the use of frustrating obstacles to lengthen gameplay.

You are absolutely right. Without those ridiculous puzzles the game would have been a few hour long game. If that long. rolleyes

Excuse me, but is this the same game as The Secrets of Atlantis: The Sacred Legacy? I found a review by inferno for Legacy, couldn't find anything for Legend, so is this yet another Atlantis game? My own favorite Atlantis game is Indiana Jones and The Fate of Atlantis!

Sierramindy - yes the game's title does end in Legacy instead of Legend -- but we all knew what catbelly meant!

It hasn't been released in the U.S., Gerry. So far those of us in North America have been purchasing imports of the game from online stores.
