This game is so frustrating. Like others said it is dark, gloomy and the hint button only tells you there is nothing to do in the scene you are in, but not where to go. I hate when that happens! You go up the hill, down the hill over and over. You can go the lighthouse but still need to gather all this stuff before you can even open the door. Hated to use the Strategy Guide, but at least it was included. I'm not going to finish this game. If not for Fun Pass, I'd feel cheated.

As stated many times, there is no map and no hints as to where to go to next. A well written game guides you to your next destination or challenge. NOT this game. I didn't use the strategy guide and made it through to the end, but I can't say I enjoyed the journey.

There is no doubt that a lot of hours were spent creating this game. Reviews in other games sometimes show that the HOs were too easy to find so to make sure that didn't happen in this game too many objects were stuffed in the scenes in a muted color. Everything runs together making it difficult to find a miniscule item. How one can remember which ship or location something may be is beyond me. I didn't get what the story was about with too much confusion with locations and inventory going on. I went as far in the game as I care to after getting pretty far and realizing that I just plain ole did not find this game entertaining.

This game is a keeper through in through. The mini games were great and pretty much original as well. Sure the hint button wasn't much help, but sometimes it was, and really when it wasn't there was the strategy guide which frankly I ended up using a few times but that didn't kill the game. I loved that the bonus let you play the game through his perspective as well. I really hope that there will be a second part, although the island exploded, there has to be some remnants and something has to follow up with the couple. Wow, magnificent game all the way. Oh the length was great as well. :) Really it's a GREAT game!

Played with FunPass. The game was challenging. Used the strategy guide more often than I would like to admit. ;) I look forward to the next installment.

The game is quite good in general. I've found the story motivating. Only downside: the hint buton is not very helpfull.

I love this game. You are sailing with your husband and enjoying the day when a supernatural storm brews and casts you unto a desolate island. This is no ordinary island, it's an island filled with the dead, of sailors who have shipwrecked before you. The lighthouse keeper drags off your unconscious husband and hangs him from the top of the lighthouse and tells you that you have to save him in order to save your husband. So you begin a frantic search to rescue your husband. The game is very involved, lots of back tracking, same areas, but to different scenes, so it's not boring. Hidden Object Scenes are played twice. A good variety of scenes to play. There are at least 2 interactive or hidden objects in the HOS. The graphics are rather muted, but items are distinct, so they are not too hard to find. There is a Strategy Guide which is helpful when you're stuck and a skip button for the puzzles that are taking too long to solve. There is a sense of urgency in the game, as you are frantic and scrambling to rescue your husband, so you may want to take a deep breath and enjoy the mini games and the hunt for items needed. I had to laugh at myself, because of being so immersed in the story. The Hint function works if you're in a area where there is something to be done. I thought at first it would only say "there is nothing to be done here" throughout the game, until I accidentally clicked it and it showed an area to explore. I love the way it shows you the hints. Pretty original. All in all, this is a fantastic game, logical (almost anyways) and fun. It took me all day to play, and the ending though abrupt, does let you play as the husband and his alternate adventure as he catches glimpses of you, but can't reach you. You get to view the ending and the game from his point of view. It's really neat. I highly recommend this game and with being one of the discount games, it's truly affordable at 1.39 and you still earn 3 stamps for your card. I also wanted to mention, I love the rats/mice. In one of the scenes, one is crawling on the table and falls off, too funny. The whole game is well written and they've done a great job in creating a creepy, eerie landscape in which to play.

If you can overlook the fact that you click back & forth a great deal, you'll like this game. A map is badly, badly needed with this one because of the plentiful different venues. Here's the basics: The graphics could be sharper, story is good, quantity of different venues is good, length of play is good, mini-games are challenging and HOG's are difficult because the graphics. Overall, I would recommend playing this. I did with my 8 year old son after dinner each night and we enjoyed the 'mommy & me' time doing something cool. It's one of the better ones.

I really liked this game, the storyline, the mini games, the number of different scenes. It wasn't too easy, and there is a strategy guide with the game for when things get a little too tough. People might not like that the hint button doesn't guide you if you don't know where to go next...still, there is a strategy guide with the game, so you do have help if you need it. My one problem with the game is that my eyes hurt during the HO scenes, which means they're a little out of focus. A good game does not need to do that to make HO scenes challenging, so this game lost a star from me.

I am sooooo glad there was a strategy guide or I wouldn't have been able to finish the game. There's no map so I found myself having to use the guide or I'd have quit in frustration as things are not very obvious. The theme is dark and gloomy but it suits the storyline which is not original and the graphics are not top-line but are far better than some I've seen. You are constantly running back and forth, back and forth which always makes me think it's a super-short game and they use the running around as a gametime extender. Just my opinion. I finished the game and was disappointed at the very abrupt ending (it was so sudden I thought it was a glitch). I played the bonus chapter and found it tied things up nicely and was a reasonable length. Overall I wasn't wowed by the game but I didn't feel cheated either. I played it with my funpass but I wouldn't have felt cheated if I'd purchased it. It's simply not a top-level HOG so I only gave it 3 stars.

with out a map or any hints as to where you should go, i found the need to click around until you found something in many locations not for me. If the graphics were not so bad, I may have tried to finish the game. I gave this an hour and it just got worse for me, so off to cyber trash for you matey!!

Unlike previous reviewers, I loved this game. OK, the hint button did not direct you to your next location, but I felt that just made the game more challenging. The graphics were spectacular and the storyline interesting. Hints recharged quickly. Mini games were original and challenging. Plus you had a bonus chapter which set the stage for a sequel. Hoping you enjoy this game as much as I did!

Sea Legends - Phantasmal Light (PE) is a great game to curl up with and just laze the day away. There are Normal & Expert modes. Yes, it desperately needs a map to jump to the various scenes; but it's not too awful. There is a "Goals" tab in the diary to help you keep track; which does help some. I played with FunPass, so the Strategy Guide was available in game. The game is not linear, so you don't have to play exactly as laid out in the guide. I used it a couple of times to refresh where I was after a bit of a break (Life still interrupts my lazy days!). I thought the graphics were pretty great. I loved the storyline. Music and sound effects were just right for the game. HOS seem to vary some from game to game and there are alternate endings, so there is some replay value. I definitely would recommend giving this game a try. If you like a game that doesn't hold your hand all the way through, you will probably love this game. If you like a game that does hold your hand all the way through, you will love having the Strategy Guide. That is, unless you absolutely hate not having an interactive map to jump from place to place.

Not using the custom cursor helped a lot, but I think the developers still need to get some of the bugs out. I would have given this game more stars if it ran smoother. The graphics and the story line were both good. I liked the whole lighthouse theme. The HOGs and mini-games were good too. The hint feature was basic. It only worked if you were right in front of something, but I liked how the lighthouse would shine on the object you needed.

this game is in desparate need of a map. the graphics are dark, but that's ok. the HO scenes themselves were good, but not having a map jst meant i was going back and forth over and over and over. the hint button was not very helpful either. it told me there was nothing to do in the scene, but did not point me in any direction. i became frustrated with the game...

Personally, I'm not keen on games that require you to use their strategy guide because they do not have a map system, have no way of you keeping track of your goals, the scenes are rather disconnected, the HO scenes are dark and it is difficult to find items, and all of this essentially contributes to a befuddled mess where you end up going back and forth through the game completely several times. Now, I'm not saying the game isn't playable, it is- since they conveniently put a strategy guide in the game for you. The game has plenty of potential, if you don't mind a lot of guesswork/feeling like you're having your hand held through the game.

Most people complain that there is not a map, but really, it is not that difficult to remember where you were. The strategy guide is very detailed and will help you out if you need it - I used it twice. It is very 'clicky' - you need to go back and forth a lot, but the loading between scenes is very quick. Liked the story-line, the mini-games, and had no problem with the hidden objects. I do agree that the hint button was really useless, unless you were trying to find a hidden object - if you want a hint as to what to do or where to go next, use the strategy guide.

The story did grab my interest pretty quickly and managed to keep me interested throughout. It is original and holds together pretty well. The H/O scenes were muted which made you have to look harder to find the items and all had interactive parts where items were closed and needed to be opened, or one used in conjunction with another. I prefer crisp h/o's with cleverly hidden items but none of these items were really difficult to find so I was ok with these muted scenes. Mini games were different and some fairly challenging. There was a lot of back and forth but, for me, it was usually evident where you needed to go with whatever items you were looking to use. A map would have been handy but managed ok without it. Nice to have the strategy guide as I missed an item and used it to backtrack and find what I needed. The game itself ended rather abruptly, but there is a bonus chapter that wraps up the story for you. Not my favorite kind of ending, but I am sure others may like it. There is a mini game at the end which might change how it concludes, so maybe worth another play to find out. The music is always rapid and "agitated" so no relaxing accompaniment here. Voice acting and graphics are ok and for the most part I found the game enjoyable.

I enjoyed this game. Unlike other reviewers, I didn't find the HOS murky or difficult at all. I even found tiny objects like pushpins fairly easy to find. There is a lot of trekking and I would have preferred a map but it wasn't a deal killer. The story was decent, the tasks logical and decipherable (unlike my nemesis, the Nancy Drew games). The bonus game should really have been part of the main game as it did tie things up. But I found it a satisfying game and am somewhat surprised so many other didn't.
