OK I know most of the acronyms but what is a HOPA? We really need a side bar telling people what these acronyms stand for. Not knowing might make a new person feel totally lost.

I was all set to purchase the latest Midnight Mysteries with my credits, but now I'm torn. I have the first Love Chronicles and even though there's some difference in play (FROG vs traditional H0's in the H0 scenes) I really like both. It's a sample version It seems that usually you get to complete one chapter when you have those. I finished the demo with 5 minutes left. I didn't have any technical issues of any sort. Someone commented or asked earlier about running games on Windows 7 when the specifications state Windows XP/Vista. In the year that I have been running Windows 7 I've never had that be an issue for playing a game. The problem usually comes if you're running an operating system older than XP (was that 98? I forget). Have fun, y'all.

Saphire, I think when you buy a CE you're mostly paying to get NOW instead of having to wait 6 weeks.

Barbee HOPA is Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure.

Bella boy do I agree about saving bucks. I guess I misunderstood your post, I thought you had said only one fish had reported 3 hrs. Sorry.

so far only one has, i liked the game and in the past would of bought right after the demo ended, but with not being able to see the full guide (big pet peeve of mine, want me to buy ce, then let me demo the ce, ie anything unlocked at purchase like the guide, should be unlocked in demo) to gauge length, i am now waiting to see what the average length is, so will wait till quite a few report in on length, no reason to apoligize

I played the demo to where you cross the bridge and really enjoyed it, but I'm hearing it's a very short game. And after all the testing the game has received I am quite surprised that there are so many typos and grammar errors. I'll definitely wait for the Standard Edition. By then, all of the text bugs should be fixed.

I will be waiting for standard edition also, This lacks the charm of the first Love Chronicles.

I enjoyed different characters and the storyline of the first game- also the gameplay was a bit different than norm.

Not much of a story here that I could tell and it is just another go here and there, pick up this or that CE game.

A bit disappointed.

I could be wrong, but I really doubt they will change anything in the game before it's released in SE, especially not text.

I didn't play the demo first, bought it straight away as downloading the demo and the full game takes up too much of my d/l limit. And I'm more than happy I did!

Gorgeous graphics, story made sense, hidden objects not too hard to find and some tricky puzzles made this several hours of entertainment. How anyone finished it in 2 hours is beyond me; I'm not a slow player but it took me about 4.5 hours.

The bonus chapter was long enough but relied to much on hidden object searches for my liking. It did however pave the way for a sequel in which I hope the very handsome prince finally gets rid of that nasty witch and has a peaceful life! After all he's been through he deserves it

Well worth the 2 credits I saved up!

Thank you BFG for another excellent game. Really enjoyed this game. Took me about 7or 71/2 hrs to finish. I did it on regular, really liked all the different games and puzzles. Was a pure enjoyment to play. Well worth the money (imo). I want to thank you for CE Thursdays.

I was wondering why I was feeling so lonely in [b]this[b] Love Chronicles. I'm well into the 2nd chapter and I haven't met any people yet LOL.

I just played the 1st LC last week, and this one is very different. Really enjoying it tho! The 2 are very different game-play wise, so it's difficult to compare them. I liked the FROG's in pt 1, but am quite enjoying the interactive adventure of this one.

All in all, glad I bought it! TY BFG!

So far into the demo and I love the game. It is easier than most I play but a breather every now and then is nice. You can play regular or expert mode. I mute the music so cannot comment on it. Subtitles pretty much direct you for moves you need and most info you come across is transferred into your journal which helps you with tasks. Hidden objects are fairly clear and not dark like many are now. They also appear to be less of a hodgepodge of stuff and many items you think you need for the tasks. Have not run across a butterfly hidden object yet.
I will wait for the SE to come out or read the forum to see if the CE offers enough bonus game play to use 2 credits or the bonus credits from last month.

I didnt bother to get up early today, after I reviewed the first Love Chronicles yesterday thought another fractured frog. I demoed it and to my surprise wolahhh an item hog. I am enjoying it very much, am happy to say. Love the puzzles. I like tinkering and putting things together so this one is for me. Thanks to the producers whomever they may be and to Big Fish for bringing us this game. Im glad its refers back to the first one it keeps the storyline going. Looks like me and some other fishes are in for a good day.

Hi everyone

This is a lovely game. The graphics are breathtaking and the music is wonderful. I especially like the cut scenes intermixed with the story, puzzles and HOG scenes throughout the demo. I played on expert mode ( which I found to be not that hard)and it took me 42 minutes to go through the demo phase of this game but I am a fast player. I thought the game was on the easier side( at least for me) and I had no trouble figuring out what to do or where to go. I thought the HOG scenes had nice variety to them. The puzzles were not too hard You will do a fair amount of running around though. The overall playability of this game is high, but I personally did not feel that challenged by it.

I enjoyed playing the demo, but I have heard this game is on the shorter side, so I am not sure if it is worthwhile to buy the CE edition for only a few more hours of playtime. I will probably wait for the SE so I feel like I get my money's worth.

My grade system:

Gameplay: B
Music: B
Graphics: A
HOG scenes: B+
Mode of Gameplay( Hard Mode?):B

My Overall Grade- B

Rebeca lily and others, I also buy a game that's enjoyable, good story, and graphics, not just length. However, I don't beleive I have bought a game that ends an hour after the demos over. But, I'm slow at playing games and try not to use the stradegy guide too much. If I'm very disappointed on a game I'll contact BF and see if it can be resolved. Enjoy your gaming

I have the same question and completely agree. I am not new to these games, but haven't seen all of the abbreviations either. Most of the medical abbreviations I see every day are easier to figure out. Side bar would be awesome.
