I beat this game the first time through after 5.4 hours, which is partially because I was distracted for most of it because I really only played it while babysitting and partially because this is my first hidden object game like... ever. I bought a bundle with a bunch of them in it because the bundle was really cheap and I thought most of the games in it looked cool. I'm going to have to play through it twice more to get 100% (I kind of switched back and forth between hidden object and card matching the first time though) but that's okay. It's not going to be difficult to get 100%, as long as I play while I'm not distracted by screaming kids.

Speaking of kids, the boy enjoyed watching me play and he helped me with a couple of hidden object puzzles, so it was a pretty decent way to distract the kids, because Sunny got into watching me too.

Overall, not a bad game, with good music and decent graphics, a decent storyline, and puzzles that weren't too easy or too difficult. It was a nice introduction into the world of Point and Click games.

It has its fair share of puzzle and hidden object scenes, but this game is an adventure and not casual game. Great story (play the first game of the series first if you aren't allergic to hidden object puzzles ;)) and good pacing keep this game from ever being boring. While the ride isn't that long you will be entertained throughout. The balance between 'real' point & click adventure and puzzles is just right to not get on your nerves. Really recommended for both casual and classic adventure players.

This is a great example of the casual adventure genre. Yes, it is technically a hidden object type game, but there's variety in the types of puzzles. You can do hidden object minigames or mix it up with a type of two of a kind card matching game. There are standard point and click adventure elements, very nice graphics, decent sound and voice acting, and a story that's not too shabby. The story was decent enough that I was a little bit disappointed that the first one in this series wasn't available on steam. There were numerous references to events that happened in Enigmatis 1, which is not available on Steam at the time of this review.

This version of Enigmatis, which is actually the Engimatis 2 collector's edition, contains both the main story (about 4 hours long) and a side story that's maybe 1 hour long. The side story adds a bit of back story to the main, so don't play it until after completing the main game, as it will spoil the few twists in the tale.

My personal opinion on this game, as with all games, is that fair pricing depends on the value you feel it brings. This game has very little replayability as it is story based with little variation in puzzles between playthroughs. The story is relatively short, but it is a great example of a short, casual adventure game. I recommend it, but I wouldn't pay more than $6-7 for it.

An excellent hidden-object game, one of the best of the genre! Much better than Enigmatis 1, which you do not have to play to enjoy Enigmatis 2.

The game world is very well-developed, with creative scenes that invoke true surprise and wonder. It's very nice to see originality in this genre, which too often relies on clichéd storytelling. The puzzles are fun, and the UI is as smooth as butter.

I would also like to thank the developer for supporting Linux.

This game is ok. The puzzles aren't very hard and the story is pretty predictable but the voice acting is good and the cutscenes are decent. I enjoyed the game, but it definitely wasn't the best I've ever played, or even close.

Surprisingly good. The hidden object sequences actually make sense and are fun. Good artwork as well.

Game: Typical point and click hidden object puzzler

Pro:
Hint System
Pretty graphics
Good story
Puzzles aren't that tough
Steam cards
Under $2.50 while on sale

Con:
Short (after 1 hr 10 min I'm more than a 5th through - so 6-10 hours for 100% achieve)
It is just a hidden object puzzle game

If your into this type of game, it's worth it on sale on in a bundle.
If your not into this type of game, it won't convert you.

This is the second time I play a hidden objects game (I have just bought a bundle with lots of them).
The graphics are fine as well as the background music, and, to me, this game looks like a thriller movie : you have to go through a story with almost no difficulty and enjoy the scenario, even though there is nothing surprising, but that is still fine.
Just play the game twice to unlock all the achievements (you have to play some mini-games with cards or hidden objects which requires two runs), it is easy, 6 hours should be enough for a "100% achievement" !

Just played this game through
Was really funny
Had some problems and used hints some times (played on hardest level)
But the graphics are very beautiful, the story is interesting and if you like point & click games/combining things and thinking to get further in the game, you'll definitely like this game :)

5hrs playtime whole for me (first time through)

A strongly, well wrtten B movie setting and acting makes Enigmatis The Mists of Ravenwood easy to recommedn. I am not the usual casual player but what i am finding is their is talent abound in the industry everywhere. Why can a casula title narrate an entertaining story from start to finish and yet all the money AAA throws out cant come close to what this exceeds, baffling.
As for game play Enigmatis is your basic point and click adventure where you will mostly be finding a piece to unlock another piece that will eventually unlock another piece. Its all good and for the most part simple, none of the puzzles were difficult and there is a hint system built in if you get stuck. The world itself is set in a theme park and is beutifully created. The music also is excellant as it strikes the mood and tone perfectly. The only gripe as i first stated is it is B movie materaial but the lead actress voice acting is horrible, no emotion whatsoever.
Another great couch and laptop game that will keep you entertained and wanting to see the story till the end.

Positives
Really good story telling and writing. Great ending
Lots of content. My clock time for both stories is at 8hrs.
Beutiful art
Relaxing
Puzzles are diverse and spaced to keep them fresh
Production is impressive
Music sets the mood and tone perfectly
Has raised my level of intrest in the genre

Negatives
Voice acting
References to the previous game
Filler content, re doing the same search puzzle scene x2
one or two instances that dont make sense for a puzzle solution
Did not know until almost done that you could fast travel

I really loved this game! The characters were quite interesting with good voice overs.

Some of the interaction was easy and some of it was really challenging. I found myself having to go back over some screens to find what I had missed. It was a great mix of easy and hard.

I loved the graphics and story line. It is definitley a play over game, which is like double for our money. I bought this one full price and I was not dissapointed.

There was a man in the game you had to trust to help you, even though you had no idea if he was really helping you or just himself. Some great twists and turns.

I don't like to give spoilers, so I suggest that you give this game a try. You will not be dissapointed!!

This game is a treat for the eyes. Vibrantly illustrated, I found myself looking forward to getting to the next environment, and the subtle little surprises in it. Although not a long game, it is a fun play for those who appreciate the genre. The story and soundtrack are interesting and engaging, the puzzles range from simple to fairly challenging and I found it quite addictive. Completed in less than 4 hours, but skipped doing the pair-matching games. I'd say an easy 5 hours or so for 100% achievements. Grabbed it on sale. Was not at all disappointed.

This is actually a sequel, but the first game in the series gets abysmal reviews so I gave it a miss. That said, I don't feel like I needed to play #1 to understand what's going on here.

It's a great game in the HO/puzzle/adventure game genre - great voice acting, great music, great graphics, really great plot. There's a third either coming or already out, so this one leaves you hanging for sure. No resolution to the storyline. But there's a twist at the end that totally shocked me, which is hard to do, so I ended up feeling very satisfied and impressed.

a wonderful sequel to the beautiful game. Story is good with some surprising twists. As it follows the previous storyline, be sure to play Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek first.

This is my favourite AM game and I really enjoyed playing it. I particularly liked the little girl in this game and the way that she tugged on my heartstrings and my passionate need to want to protect her and take her under my wing. I love the visuals and music in all AM games but this one really stood out for me and it's a game that I will want to play over and over. Do you like hidden object games? Do you like a good story with a compassionate feel to it? This is the game for you. I loved how all the hidden object scenes were clear and objects are genuinely difficult to find at times but I like a challenging game where I have to work at it. The puzzles are really good and they are quite challenging too. For me, it was a case of whether you are good at something or not. Some puzzles were easier than others but I didn't feel the need to tear my hair out. I also love that there is an option to either play hidden object or mahjong within the game. Everything about this game was exciting and I couldn't wait to finish it if I'm honest. The desire to find out what happens at the end was just too much and I needed to know! Lol. I feel like this with all AM games and it's not that I want to rush the game, I just want to see how it ends because that's how it keeps me gripped from start to finish. Everything about this game was clear, enjoyable and gripping and it's a definitely 10/10 for me. I love AM so much and they never fail to make me happy with their games. Every game is a new adventure. There are secrets, danger in some places, suspense and adventure and I promise you, you won't be disappointed. I can say honestly that there is nothing negative about this game unless you consider challenges to be negative, lol. Give it a try, what have you got to lose?
