lovely, wonderful, enchanting, cute, entertaining. Music pleasant, graphics fine for me on GeForce card, lots of puzzles (love that, although most are quite easy), not many HOG scenes (even better). Great series, I don't get why people don't rate this one. also love the growl from the dragon - reminds me of the noise Speedy Eggbert uses!

This is my first CE purchase and I've been impressed so far... love the achievements! Is this standard for all the CE's?? Can't wait to see the extra level! I LOVE the puzzles and mini games and the LACK of HOG's.... this game is PERFECT!!

Now see I think just the opposite... I hate when devs shove tons of H0 scenes in a game... even worse when they repeat them. This game is just about perfect... would only be better if there were NO H0 scenes at all!

Have to copy the following review word for word because there's no way I could have said it better! (Including the graphics card recommendation... I'm an ATI Radeon girl forever... love love love it. Plays every game I've tried (including my hard core games) with no wobbles.

The graphics are wonderful on my computer but there again I too am using an ATI card and I will be sticking with ATI when I buy my next computer. The continuing story is good and I left my speakers on the whole time .

I also love the fact that there isn't a H0 scene at every turn as they get boring when you have to do one for every single item that you need to use to progress to the next section of the game.

All the puzzles I have come across so far were good ... and I even did the Spot The Difference one at the start without becoming frustrated and cursing all those type puzzles. So far I haven't had to skip any of them, ask for a hint or even peek at the SG ... I assume that there is one. In the meantime I am keeping my fins crossed that the game is a long one and also has a good length bonus play to justify my spending the extra money and buying the CE instead of the SE.

Great game so far BoomZap and thanks for keeping the cute pocket dragon.

Much, much love for this. I've enjoyed all of the Awakening games, but this is the best one yet. I liked that it was chaptered, I adore the pocket dragon (although I WISH he had a name!), and the majority of the puzzles are very very good. I admit a few of them made me want to rip my hair out, but not many. I also liked the addition of the achievements - I only played the SE of the first two games in this series, so if their CEs had achievements as well I don't know it, and to me the idea was wholly new. It makes me want to go back and play again to try to get them all!

I'm sincerely hoping that we get a fourth Awakening game, and soon, because I want to know what happens next with Princess Sophia!

I'm currently enjoying replaying this game - for the third time. I just love it. May I make one suggestion for any upcoming games in this series? How about allowing free access to any chapter as a bonus once the game is finished? I would really like to be able to jump right into my favorite scenes without having to play the whole game through again. Not that I mind doing that Just a suggestion.

More games like this one please.

Just finished all the Awakening series, Sleepless Castle, Moonfell Woods and The Goblin Kingdom.
It's really fun to play them in order they leave off right where the next one starts, most excellent. Loved The Goblin King was hard to find the Maze but used the walkthrought and I was on my way.

I tried to wait for the SE, but just couldn't. So I purchased the CE & the only disappointment was the Bonus. It's seemed just a repeat of the last chapter, or am I wrong & missed something along the way? Regardless, I loved the game! It was refreshing to play a nice game versus all the vampires, scary games, etc. that have been offered previously.
Thank you boom-zap for a wonderful series.

I Will never buy a CE again for this Series there was not any extra game play just some stupid colored puzzles that I did in about 5 minutes very boring. I don't care about Wallpaper, Music,Sketches,Cut Scenes,and Screen Savers just a bunch of useless stuff to me.

I do like this game. I have to admit that I wanted to buy it because it had an owl and I love owls; however, I like this game. Everyone is complaining about the mini-games and not enough HOG but I think most games that come out these days have mostly HOG and hardly anything else. Overall, I think is just a cute HOG game that happens to stand out among all the rest. I did buy the CE game which is vary, vary rate for me!

P.S. Funny, I had to edit this because apparently you can't say "H0"...wasn't trying to offend anyone!

...........wow............BoomZap does it again with this top-notch, excellent game!! Absolutely got my money's worth this time...........it took me 8 hours, 59 minutes, and 32 seconds..... not even counting the bonus section Only skipped a few puzzles [I go crazy with the "untangle-the-mess" types, but there is a wide variety]. Loved the hint owl and the pocket dragon [that continue from previous games in the series], and the art work/graphics were lovely and very fairy-tale exquisite........wonderful detail!!! The other thing, that I always enjoy, are the "achievements" you can earn while playing.....these satisfy the competitive nature, and lends the game to re-playability. Recommended highly for those who have to mete out their CE 's carefully............... ...... ............... ..

Just finished all 3 and absolutely loved them, I thought each one got better and Goblin Kingdom was excellent, got a bit sick of the whole untangle mini games but didn't skip any and took me 7 hours to finish, can't wait for the next one!!

Just finished this game. Took over 5 hours total play. Thought the game was wonderful, lots to do, minimal hidden objects, good graphics. It's nice to play a game that is not all doom and gloom. The only negative comment is that some of the mini games were hard to figure out what needed to be done; these were skipped. So if I hadn't skipped these, it would have taken longer to finish.

More games like this please BF.
