Here's another adventure or strategy-type game under the guise of a hidden object. Although technically, the entire game is an HO because you are always searching for something with which to complete various tasks. While the animation is decent and the graphics colorful, the hidden objects were pretty small on my 17-inch laptop screen, and I took to just clicking shapes that looked out of place. The mini-puzzles are creative and not too difficult, but can be skipped after a short wait. Hints refill pretty rapidly which was a good thing, as I kept using them to figure out what I was supposed to do next. You need to click on chairs, desk drawers, stacks of books, etc. to move them to find things for the strategy part of the game. It seems I was doing a lot of clicking. The standard hidden object parts of the game are very short and fairly simple. There is a storyline, but it is so badly translated, that I pretty much quit reading the dialogue.This game has a nice mix of challenges, but it's a little light on classic HO games to satisfy true HO fans.
This one's odd. Generally I don't care for games done with poser-people because they're just all around bad. In this case it wasn't. I can't say I thought the art was good, it was mediocre 3D. But the animator was quite good, so it's not painful to watch the animation sequences. The plot was entertaining and the beginning had enough of a hook to keep my attention. The puzzles and HO scenes were varied and fun. That said: this game needs a remake by people who can do good art, quality dialogue and more than just kludged programming. The interface is lacking in smoothness and refinement, the animation was choppy whenever dialogue was involved, and the hint system could be more intelligent. This one's unusual because while the programmers and art were as cut-rate as ever in this tier of game, the actual game design and flow of the game were top notch.
While the graphics were good as well as the mini games, I found this game a bit boring. Made me sleepy. Just the opinion of an old lady. You might enjoy it. However I did not.

The art work and animation very good. Adding a new twist on the Musketeer legend. Finding objects a bit more fun by having to paw your way through leaves and such. Being able to interact with Constance a nice change.

Overall the game was fun. I really enjoyed dressing up Constance, it reminded me of my dolly days lol. But I really admired how they allowed the skip option for the guys. Kudos for the publisher. The graphics for awesome. Mini games were cool too. Story was good but the end was like putting on the brakes to your car all of a sudden and bam it's over. What about Constance and her relationship with the Musketeer? I would of liked to see her happy as well so the story in the game would of been complete.
It was a fun game to play, sorry it was not long enough though. Great graphics and it alot of different types of HO scenes. The puzzles were good. Hope there is a sequel.

This game just didn't work for me, the graphics were not great, the ho's were almost irritating to find and put together-and then to dress my character was um....just not for me I guess? It also was a short game. Worth the free hour but not sure anything else?

Having tried this I didn't buy it mainly because I find it insulting that game-creators aiming at an English-speaking market can't even bother to employ someone who can speak the language or to do sensible research on their subject. That seems just plain shoddy to me, given that there are so many equally good or better HOGs around (including those clearly produced in foreign countries) which do take the trouble to get these basic things right. There was nothing special about this game except what was wrong with it.
Oh boy. The English translation is so bad, it's almost comical. As you're reading the story (no vocals), you start to develop this strange accent. Graphics were clean but sometimes dark. Minigames were interesting (slide and find). Dress up was fun, although I suppose a lot of men are going to skip this part. Only two issues I have. One is that the game was rather short, I finished in a couple of hours. The second was the constant loading between the zooming in and out. That was a little annoying. All in all the game was good and a definite recommendation from me. Enjoy!
As noted, by a number of other reviewers, the lack of effort on the part of the developers to make coherent sentences and use correct wording, turned me off at the start of the game. The graphics are good and the challenges are for the most part trivial However, the freezing of the game while you move from one location to another caused me to loose interest quickly. The task list tells you how to solve most challenges, so very little thought is required. If you can ignore these type issues, you may find this a tolerable game. I may have quit too early, and the game may have gotten better!
The only issue is it was too short. Graphics were good. Different with the costume changing and trying to figure out what she needed to wear for the different adventures. Hope there is a part 2.

The graphics of scenery is fine. The characters look somewhat fine, though the main character for some reason keeps changing her look (you see pink color hair in main screen, then change to yellow, then to brownish yellow, and her face changes too). The HO is fine, but somewhat easy, pretty much just click anything that's stand out. There's a mix of puzzles, some are nice. The tasks made me think a little as I sometimes I didn't pick the needed object yet. Hint recharges fairly fast, but I hate that it consumes hint and tells me to look somewhere else. The game feels like a dressing up one because you get to choose to dress every 5 mins for tasks. You can skip this but it will shorten the game a little, though it is already very short. Nice story, kinda disjointed animation, but abrupt ending, it just kicked me out the menu without warning. Also, no Play button after finish game, you have to create a new profile if you want to replay, not that I want though. Feels like this game is made in a hurry with no polish and a few misspells. Not good value or good replay whatsoever. May not appeal to many.
I thoroughly enjoyed the unique game mechanics and game-play of the "Three Musketeers Secrets - Constance Mission" It is very interactive-having to look behind things and search through piles of objects to find what you are looking for. This makes for a less "static" game-play approach and is one of the games greatest strengths. But it also has one fatal weakness. I would have purchased this game in a heart-beat and given a much higher review if it wasn't for the blatant lack of Quality Assurance testing. The grammar and spelling errors throughout this game are atrocious. I had to re-read sentences several times due to such poor grammar and sentence structuring that I had a hard time interpreting what was actually trying to be said. It is sad to see a game that's put together so well be severely offset by such an easy thing to correct. Polishing the game is just as important as the game-play itself. I tend not to bicker over small spelling and grammar mistakes but this game is so saturated with grammatical errors that I soon found myself more irritated and annoyed than enjoying myself. If an updated version of this game is released with corrections to all the grammatical and spelling errors, I will buy it. Until then-NO SALE.
...but couldn't get past the dialogue. It's quite difficult to understand. Must be something lost in the translation. I might have lasted longer because it seemed like it could be a decent game. Would rather use my brain for figuring out puzzles rather than trying to decipher the storylline.

This is a charming game and I enjoyed playing it in spite of a few issues. Parts of the story were poorly translated, so much so that I almost didn't buy it. But the worst of it was near the beginning and it seemed to get a lot better toward the end. Fortunately the instructions are clear and the hints are pretty good. If you have a larger screen then you probably wouldn't need hints - on my laptop I had to use quite a few to find things that were hidden around the room. The game has a lot of clever things going on. It is very interactive and you can move chairs and open cabinets. I also liked the mini games. There are not a lot of hidden object scenes - which I quite liked - and some of them you have to search through moving stuff, which was cool but a little too easy. The graphics were very clear and the animation was simplistic, but adequate - my only complaint with it was that it just stops completely - music and all - until you "click to continue". It was a decent length but the story ended quite abruptly. Definitely a fun little adventure for a lazy Sunday afternoon - especially if you can get it for free or the discounted price.
I'm a history buff and an English major so with the English grammar as poor as it was in the dialogue, I simply couldn't rate it better than 3 stars. Also, I was hoping that it would have actual voices speaking the dialogue & narrative which would have held my attention better. The game itself did have some interesting twists though. For instance in some of the hidden object scenes, the items were sort of buried under leaves but the leaves would move as you moved the cursor around but you definitely had to move the right way or you could miss things! The hints were unlimited and didn't take too long to refill and were actually helpful when I couldn't seem to figure out quite where to look next to complete tasks! The graphics were nice enough and the game had a good mix of easy to difficult to find objects. Overall for me, it's basically a good game but not one I want to add to my collection.
My gameplay experience lasted less than 20 minutes. I had no problems with the download. The graphics were beautiful. The description of the story was intriguing. However, the narrative was terrible! From incomplete sentences to misspelled words, I couldn't even make myself finish the free trial period! With all the time and money put into making a game with such beautiful graphics, I can't believe they didn't bother to hire a proofreader. Frustrating!
The biggest challenge to this HOG is trying to understand the attempted English narration and dialogue! The tutorial was sort of "learn as you go", but the hints are very helpful. A nice feature was a different twist in searching the HO screens: you can move things about to uncover different parts of the screen! Again, understanding the broken English is a factor in describing some clues. The graphics are generally good, but often dark, and the HOs are often very hard to discern - hidden in shadows, background, etc. Hint: Watch the cursor tip; it often turns blue when you cross an item or a search area. The music is "soothing" but repetitive. The animation of the heroine is somewhat racy, so kids might be in for an education! The theme is interesting. Overall, the game has lots of potential; the challenge is if the producers are up to it!
