In this Collector's Edition version, there's always the built in Strategy Guide to help you. I don't like to give too much detail about the specific HOPS or puzzles because it is far more fun to discover for yourself what a game holds in store for you. The HOPS are absolutely a delight with items that are well depicted. Animation is excellent, movement are very smooth.
I am playing these games to relax and for their entertainment value so I don't want to be stressed to much with puzzles I can't solve. All in all I highly recommend this game. You truly do go on a nice little adventure. One of the best features of Enchanted Kingdom: Fog of Rivershire is the superb drawing of characters and scenery. We highly recommend the Collector's Edition as it comes ready with tons of bonuses: a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, videos, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects, a souvenir room, replayable hidden objects, and replayable puzzles.
There is usually a puzzle, sometimes two, to solve. The Mini Games are in abundance. Those looking for an intense challenge won't get it from the game either. The graphics are beautiful and, yes, icy but perfect for a cold and rainy day here in my town. The graphics are beautifully hand drawn which the production team has become famous for in all of their games.
The storyline does a nice job also. The remaining extras are the standard fluff but for new gamers the in-game strategy guide is always a benefit. Also, developers are now offering a custom mode of gameplay and this one will allow you to set your hint and skip times to your preference. This Collector's Edition has 15 Morphing Objects within the HOP's, 9 Concept Art pictures, p Dev pictures, 9 Wallpapers, 11 Music Soundtracks, 14 Videos, a Souvenir Room, 18 Achievements to earn, 15 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 20 replayable Mini Games, Collectible Characters, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!
The Hidden Object Scenes are well done, again the devs have done a nice job of keeping the items true to the period of time. In terms of entertainment and relaxation, this game delivers just what you need! This Collector's Edition offers the usual Achievements to earn, and there are 41 Hidden Items to collect. Voices are age and character appropriate, with emotion for a change.
I actually don't mind easy puzzles, as long as they are fun. You have an interactive, transporter type map to help you move quickly between locales. I found this game surprisingly fun and interesting. I've been playing this game for 2 hours and I still quite a ways to go.
All in all, Enchanted Kingdom: Fog of Rivershire is a good game. Not an amazing one.
