When this game first came out, I just could not make myself play it, as I found the faery annoying. Saw it on sale here
on Steam, and thought, "Why Not?" Especially since I had played the first and third in this series.
The faery and the dragon didn't annoy me as much as I thought they would.
Despite what another reviewer wrote, you can click on them while they are speaking just to shut them up.
Especially when the dragon is repeating what someone just told you.
I actually did enjoy it, except for some of the HO's being difficult to find.
I like the fact that it has a jump map and you are notified when you are done in an area,
so you can just move on.
It was at times challenging, but not overly so. Puzzles are solvable without being to simple.
If your not sure what to do, there is a hint helper on top you can click on that will let you know what
to do. Otherwise, it stays out of site, for those who do not want hints.
There is a WT on the Big Fish site for when you get really stuck.
Not sure what the CE would have, as seeing I played #3 I knew how the story would end.
