I absolutely LOVED the original Enlightenus. This is an extremely poor sequel. It doesn't have the intensity or the originality of the original. To say I'm disappointed in this sequel is an extreme understatement. I was looking forward to this sequel, and it is just terrible.

I still like the original one the best, however, this was very entertaining. I also like the fact that the hidden objects are there, in your face, and you have to place them. I probably would have given it another star if the same locations hadn't been used over and over.

At the first 10 minutes, I nearly gave up cause HO scenes were not clear or bright until the second floor was reached when the scenes and graphics became beautiful. Besides, HOs that need to be fixed or attached were too small, sometimes even tiny ones so that could hardly figure out what the item was without words explanation. . And then I found i was attractive to this game by its unique story ideas and distinct puzzels which were very interesting. In general, as good as Enlightenus I, except for small HOs.
"Elegant" is the word that kept coming in my head as I played. Soothing music, beautiful graphics, very relaxed and relaxing. It's essentially an endlessly HOS game, which usually would bore me to tears, but because the HOS are "reversed" and rather amusing, I wasn't bored. I agree I didn't like having to drag all over the screen to read all the labels. I thought the mini games were fairly easy, except for the animated sketch ones that I had quite a time with. They were very clever, and not easy to figure most of them out. I've not seen anything like them in any other game. It wasn't an exhilarating game, but a somehow peaceful one. And yes, elegant.
I really enjoyed playing this game. The story keeps you going.

I had played the first Enlightenus and liked it well enough to play this second offering. I enjoyed this one as well as the first for the nice graphics, unique storyline and the unusual finding of the "hidden" objects. More a matching of objects to create a result in the area you are playing. The mini games to access areas or further your gameplay are quite unique and not too difficult. If you do happen to get stuck the hint system assists quite well. Replay a few times might be fun if new items to "match" are offered each time to create different results with the scene characters and items. If you are seeking a non-timed, light hearted, pleasant game, I would recommend this one.
I never played the original game and I went into this game with little information. Unfortunately the game also gave me little information. I found myself constantly wishing I had a journal or a guidebook to turn to. Enlightenus II is a story of a man who builds a time traveling clock. He ends up in trouble when the clock breaks apart, and his past starts changing. He hires you, a reporter, to time travel through various clocks in order to set things right. You start at the bottom of a house, which represents his early years, and as you solve puzzles you move up (and his life progresses). The graphics are beautifully rendered, and the hidden object games are fun. You have a group of items that you must match up in their most logical place. For instance, a blank piece of paper when combined with a jar of ink will become a beautiful painting. This game has a silly sense of humor, and you will be asked to provide a variety of creatures with items that improve their lives. A sleepy owl will be given an eye mask to help him sleep. BUT this is where the biggest flaw lies. You cannot tell what the objects are until you pick up an object and then drag it from item to item reading the text. You cannot do must of the matches without reading through all the items. This is time consuming and frustrating. I wanted to be able to point at an object and read what it was quickly. Some of the matches are so obscure I had to use the hint button. And it is a sloooow refill on the hints. You can find some "E cards" which allow you to instantly refill the hint meter but they are few and far between. Another downside is the mini games. Occasionally you will come across a mini game in the house and they are NO instructions provided. Some I could figure out just by messing around but I also had to skip some simply because I didn't know what to do. I enjoyed the HO part, you get to travel to a variety of places, and times which was interesting. But I finally got too discouraged to finish the game. I certainly don't recommend it for purchase. It's worth a try if you love hidden object games but there are so many better games out there.
I really enjoyed this game. While it's pretty easy, the rich graphics were lovely to look at and the way the game was laid out was unique. I enjoyed the new style of HOG's, which made you think with the placement of each item. The storyline was unique, too, and I appreciated having one that wasn't all about evil, dark spirits, demons and devils. Now I'll go looking for the original if it's the same as this one...

I really enjoyed playing this game. You do have to go back and forth to find the items you need. A tad bit thinky on some parts cause the items don't seem to match what you are looking at, but all in all if you like hidden object games. You'll like this one.

I played the 1st game in this series and was happy to see another one. I really like how the HO scenes are different - you are given objects and you have to find what they go with. For example, a paintbrush would go with a squirrel labeled "Artistic Squirrel" or something like that. Kind of silly but makes it fun. The graphics are great, the story is good - definitely an entertaining game.

enjoy playing this type of HOG where u must match objects with their most logical option. very challenging. i did have to use the hint button at times b/c i jst couldn't figure out the logic. having 2 "E" cards in each HO location helped tremendously to replinish my hints. the hint button is rather slow to recharge. love the graphics and music in this game. i did get frustrated with the minigames b/c there were no instructions with them, but this was not enuf to deter me from playing the game. keep 'em coming...
I really liked the original Enlightenus, and I was looking forward to this one. But this is the same game! The logic puzzles are the same, the items that need to be fixed are the same, and all the scenes are the same. It's merely a repeat of the first game, with the exception of the added bonus material. That's kind of cheating. Are the developers too busy or lazy to build a new game, or did they think no one would notice? All they did was relabel the old game and add some bonus material. What a disappointment. For those who did not play the first game, this can be a bit of a challenge. First you have to really study the scenes to learn what's in them and then use your wits to figure out where the items fit. Some are fairly obvious, and others can be quite a challenge. But if you enjoy engaging your brain, this is quite an interesting game, and a unique angle for a HOG in my experience. If you've never played it, you will like it. But if you did play the original game, then don't bother to buy this one just for the additional bonus scenes--it' not worth it.
