Play It Again, Maestro!
The first Maestro game was so good that it is one of the few that I have chosen to keep on my iPad. It just does not get old. I am hoping that this second version will be as entertaining. As before, the art work is well lit and the Hidden Objects are usually self explanatory. Most of the logic puzzles are music themed and quite clever. The Music Academy has been burned to the ground by angry parents of the music students. You are asked to solve the mystery. I am quite fond of all the mechanical musical statues, and the scenery is often beautiful as well as unexpected. The evil presence, pictured as an angry black tornado, is always one step ahead of you, trying to thwart you. I am only two chapters into the game, and I am impressed at the sheer amount of HOGs included in the game so far. A good Hint button and a great Strategy Guide go a long way. By the way, I read the Guide three times and could not see where the First Symbol was found for the Musician and Instrument Game inside the crypt. In case you missed it, it is inside the statue with the bowls of fire. You must use the flask of water to douse the fire so that you can cool the metal disc. I was afraid I had missed it, and would have to restart the game again! Otherwise, I have no criticisms so far. ERS makes good games, from the few that I have seen. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who loves music. I am desperately waiting for Maestro III now!
Maestro: Notes of Life reviewed by Lynxminx
I didn't love this game. It was boring! Too many typical HO scenes and not enough puzzles. The puzzles were simplistic and not so much fun! The graphics were ok, but on zoom objects looked "embedded". The journal was not very helpful either. The game was not really long, even with the bonus chapter.
There were some good features though. Very quick load scene to scene, and a strategy guide and labeled inventory. There should have been a map! Especially a teleport map! I don't like running back and forth and I tend to forget where I need to carry out a particular action.
There were not enough unlockable locations, and the game was glitchy. When you try to use an object that you know was correct, it wouldn't work and kept saying "at least I tried" or not the right item! Very annoying! I have noticed this problem with the last few ERS games. They should test them more thoroughly before introducing them! I would rather wait longer for a great game than quickly get buggy ones!
Ok, I know you all are waiting so I guess I will just say it! There were MICE! (Hi, Snooper and Bunkie; I actually ignored the mice!) The stars were taken off for the glitches, lack of map and length of the game! After playing a fabulous game like the Smithsonian, this was a huge disappointment. Please can you give us another installment in that series soon? It was not only educational but so interesting and fun to play!
If you enjoyed the original Maestro adventure game you will not be disappointed by the sequel which carries the same format now synonymous with this series. The closest comparison to Maestro would probably be the Poe series in terms of design and quality of the graphics, which is pretty great. Areas of improvement for me would definitely be in the HOSs which are way too crowded with objects and lacking the latest creative innovations that have started to emerge in the ever evolving genre of adventure gaming. An excellent example of this includes HIDDEN Expedition's collaboration with the Smithsonian in The Hope Diamond with stunning results that highlight the possibilities for the future adventure gaming. A huge congratulations to Big Fish and Elephant for this incredible collaboration!
This said, Maestro is still a genuinely solid series with a clearly loyal fan base that I absolutely enjoy. Strengths include great cut scenes and excellent synchronized narration. A big weakness for me was a lack of a navigational map which would eliminate all the back and forth nonsense which for me gets in the way of game play. This alone would be an excellent way this game can become more game friendly and contemporary. If Maestro starts to incorporate unique technologically advanced creative twists to their HOSs it would absolutely be a 5 star game.
