Summary: So it is a bit creepy but not bad enough to really give you nightmares or anything. it will probably leave you paranoid though. The puzzles are great and not too difficult, though you may need a guide, and the scenery is interesting. you might figure out who the bad guy is before red does but it doesn't really hurt the story. I love the set up there's plenty of "didn't see that coming" moments and it certainly gives you that creepy "nothing is safe" feeling.
Summary: I ordered this game and 4 others based on all the reviews here. They are all from Viva media. When I installed this one 4 icons came up and no Red Riding Hood. I deleted and tried again, same result. I tried emailing Viva Media and got a call back from Itok tech support. The man kept insisting I had a virus and tried to sell me more computer security .I had installed a game before this one and one after both successfully. My neighborhood geek says it was the disk.
