Beautifully done, mid-level puzzles, engaging story.

This is top-notch in visuals, with an understated, lovely soundtrack. The game is long and somewhat complex, which I think is great. The puzzles/mini-games are a challenging enough to be fun, but solved every one without a problem and most all fairly quickly. Definitely one of the better games.

Best in the Series

I just plain loved this game. There was great variety with HOG's, puzzles, putting objects in the proper place. The story and music were good. I bought it as a SE because CE are just too expensive but I don't think I missed out on anything. What a great game.

Challenging with some excellent puzzles

Echoes of the Past is a trilogy of games from Orneon & this is the third; you do not need to have played the first two to enjoy this offering but they are well worth it & it?s always good to have some background. There are a lot of puzzles to solve in this game, some of them are fiendishly difficult & many are original. The hidden object scenes are good too & have interactive items which is always fun. Some of them, rather than being word lists are where you are given items to ?put back? into the scene. You will need to go back & forth between scenes quite a lot & there is no map, you just get a journal which does not really provide many clues. The graphics are excellent, as is the artwork & it filled my widescreen, however I was not keen on the music & the background sounds seemed to rely on a lot of creaking & footsteps. There are two modes of play; regular with sparkles abounding & advanced with no sparkles. The hint recharge is a fast 15 seconds in both modes. The voiceovers are mainly in the cut scenes & well suited to the game. A good lengthy game that is enjoyable to play.

Extremely Satisfied

I would just like to say that I had a whole lot of fun playing this game. I like the style, graphics, puzzles, etc. But, what I'm most happy with is that I've finally played a Collector's edition that was worth the extra cost. Most Collector's edition only offer things like screensavers, conception art, or maybe an extra location to explore. Which is very nice. But, this one offered another complete adventure. Even though it was shorter than the original game, I felt that I finally got my money's worth with this game. The ability to be able to go back and retry every puzzle is an awesome plus! Please include this feature in future releases. I've played every game in the series. And, this is definitely the best one, so far.

Fun Game, Great Challenge

I really liked this game because it took quite awhile to finish the game! The puzzles were tricky and took some thought to accomplish and the actual game was quite long! I love when the games are more involved and they last longer! Definitely worth the credit!

great game

All of the echoes of the past are fun games.

Having fun with time

Really enjoyed this game. Kept me engaged and wanting to find the next turn. The puzzles were interesting and well crafted. The twists and turns were just right. If you consider yourself a expert gamer, try the challenging level. It will keep you occupied.

This is a truly awesome Hidden Object/Adventure Game. I loved it. You start out in the present day, in a castle that has been turned in to a museum. Unfortunately a witch has cursed the castle and broken the giant clock in the lobby. You have to explore the museum/castle, travelling through swirling portals to other times. Others from the castle's history are also trapped by broken clocks. That is the set up. I would describe this game as mostly adventure with some HO scenes, which are mostly junk piles with interactive elements. Expect to visit each HO scenes more than once. Everything was properly labeled and none of the items were microscopic or impossible to find. You will need to do lots of walking around--through time--to find the items you need to perform the necessary tasks. As you fix the clocks in each time period, the person trapped there is freed and the portal closes. You then receive a piece of the broken clock in your time period. The graphics are very good. There is both text and voice over?s in the cut-scenes, which can be clicked through. Game play is really long. There are lots of activities and mini-games, which are overall pretty good and skippable. I only ran into one or two that I would call really difficult. There are more interesting places to explore in this game than any other game I've played. I played in advanced mode and did have to use a few hints. With no sparkles, I missed a few areas I needed to search. Since there are many areas open to explore at one time and you can collect quite a few inventory items before you use them, this game may not be for everyone. It was perfect for me.
