Summary: Set in the 16th century you have to quash a conspiracy to kill the King of France. A good story, so the introduction of weird potions and ghosts is unnecessary and spoils part of the fun. Introducing anachronisms like trains and photographs is another mistake.
Summary: I have rather a long (good) review, so I have posted it in the forums. I played this game over three days, mostly because like a really good candy, I wanted to savor it and was mildly disappointed when it ended.
Summary: I was disappointed that the developer didn't do more with what I thought was a great idea. Solving a murder mystery plot against the King in glamorous historical settings should have made for a great adventure HOG, but this fell flat.
Summary: I was intrigued by this game - at first I worried that it wouldn't work on my computer (some games do, some games don't, sigh) but it did !! So I finished the demo, but I wasn't pulled in like I'd want to be, but I loved the mini-games, graphics, story - really boochie 54 detailed it perfectly!
Summary: Although it might not be to everyone’s taste, I quite enjoyed this. Being a history geek, I liked the story of a 16th century plot to kill the French king, even though there were a few anachronisms (a toy train, a photo).
Summary: I've just finished playing the first hour of this and am loving it. The graphics are clear and the hint system helps if you get stuck. I love historic stories and this one doesn't disappoint. A ghost appears to ask for help in the past and the gameplay is smooth and logical.
