Summary: had a little problem downloading, but did finally. interesting game only cons are the house is so big and doors off of doors. on the map if you pointed and clicked and was taken to point it would have been better. would have saved time and trying to fine your way around. some of the games directions were not too clear took some time to figure it out. was a long game and I am a person that plays lots of games. kept me busy enjoyed that it was not rushed.
Summary: I really enjoyed this game! Puzzles were great; it actually scared me a couple of times when 'being watched.' The tempo was good with minor repetitiveness (i.e. returning more than twice to a previous scene).
Summary: It's nice to see a straight up murder mystery (that sounds crazy) game amidst all of the supernatural hidden object adventure games. This one has a number of good things going for it and is really well done. + The story is interesting and kept me entertained. + The graphics are excellent and moody, which goes with the game's theme. + Music is good. + Puzzles and hidden object scenes are well done. + Three difficulty settings to choose from.
Summary: I had a hard time rating this one due to problems I encountered. I enjoyed the game (graphics, puzzles, hidden objects) but I found a lot of the dialogue long winded. Also, I'm running windows 7 and I was forced to use xp mode to play the game. This resulted in choppy flow of transition from scene to scene and also mouse movement. You may find on a windows xp computer, or even a vista computer, that it plays perfectly.
Summary: I enjoyed playing through this game. It isn't difficult, but is just enough mental exercise to be enjoyable. I've purchased another of the "Brink of Consciousness" games to fill the rainy days.
Summary: Dorian Gray Syndrome has been a very interesting experience, and covers a quite unusual, rather grisly theme, somewhat reminiscent of Damien Hirst and his art. The dialogue was very well written and full of portent. This game has the potential to be a five star game with the following improvements. Some of the items (especially the hidden objects) were difficult to click on.
Summary: I am torn between 4 and 5 stars. I really liked this game, but I have to give it 4 stars because I had to go to the walkthrough a couple of times to keep playing. The art is very well drawn, the voice acting is very interesting, and I thought there was a good balance between HO scenes and puzzles. I wish the map feature would have been more helpful because of the vast amounts of backtracking. I had a hard time remembering exactly where I needed to return to.
