Summary: I am very disappointed in this game because it is very hard to play. There are no hints, no direction on where to go after you find something, no direction on the next steps on how to solve this game. The pictures are great and the story line is great but with no help or DIRECTION at all it is crazy hard. I went from 1 room to another looking for stuff and back again to the same rooms many many times. I don't like this game at all.
Summary: I don't know whether I just have bad luck but I ran into weird glitches every step of the way in this game. The most annoying would be random black areas in the game. It was also very easy to miss key quest items and it wouldn't let you go back and get them. If you didn't go to certain areas or to talk to certain people at certain times you would miss key info.
Summary: All I can say about this game is, meh...I got stuck in a lot of areas because for one, who knew I had to dig into some sugar 3-4 times to retrieve a hidden battery?? The people who died died for no reason at all. There's two endings. I didn't feel like going through the whole scenario again just to see a different ending. A lot of the props you were suppose to pick up didn't go with a lot of the story.
Summary: To tell the truth, I was not thrilled by this game (I played it on CD-Rom). in a week-end with a friend we cracked everything. I thought there was a lot of uneccesary walking and going to a place. But the graphisms were good and the atmosphere was really Agatha Christian (sorry for the neologism!
Summary: If we hadn't found an on-line cheat page on this game, we'd never have gotten through it. The entire fifth chapter is a ridiculous joke - get rotten apples, make cider (but first find the parts for the cider press) and feed it to the goats to get past the thistles? Who on Earth would think of doing that on their own? The flashlight batteries in the flour was another unheard of puzzle.
Summary: I enjoy mystery and adventure games, so I expected to enjoy this game. This is one of the least fun games I've ever played. Most of the 'puzzles' in the game are impossible to figure out without a hint (because they are absurd), and then once you do figure them out are completely irrelevant to the game. In fact, all you really must do to complete this game is to talk to everyone over and over and over.
Summary: I Like Nancy Drew type games and occasionaly Law and Order, but this was really boring. Having read the book I was ready for something spectacular and I was given something so mundane a three-year old could accomplish the tasks by simply clicking around the screen until something works. I hated it....It was nothing to figure out. People just kept dying while you do stupid tasks throught the game.
Summary: Another tedious excersise in the murder-mystery genre of adventure gaming..What starts of as a classy interpretation of the classic novel quickly devolves into your typical wandering item/conversation "what's next" unengaging gameplay, which given it's one location will no doubt have players running around and eventually becoming bored at looking at the already static backgrounds..Only for hardcore mystery fans, people who liked the sherlock holmes, or hitchcock games..
Summary: I bought this with the intention of giving it to my mom, but naturally I thought I'd "test" it out first to see if it was something she'd enjoy. After playing it through, I have decided to sell the game rather than subject her to its frustrations. This game is based on a mystery, but this is not a mystery game. Don't worry about trying to figure out who's the killer because even if you did figure it out, there's nothing you can do about it.
