Summary: Love all the Boakes games but think the graphics are the best in this one. As always he makes a story feel really creepy with the atmosphere and sounds. The stories just pulls you in keep your interest . Will never tire of his games. Keep them coming.
Summary: The atmosphere is pretty good, but this game is impossible without a walkthrough. You have to look up and down sometimes (this is a still image game), but you find things so infrequently with it that you sometimes forget to do it, and if you didn't do it in a spot you were supposed to do, you're stuck until you look at a faq. Also, at one point there is a bag you look in, and you pull out a note. I then proceeded to be unable to continue because I was missing a key item.
Summary: a much needed improvement over the first 2 chapters of the dark fall saga, 3 is a four star game-great atmosphere, crisp graphics, better pathfinding, a recommended game for horror adventure gamers.
Summary: Not a bad game overall. The hotel was really bad, as in good. It was totally creepy and disgusting. I really did get chills running up my arms more that a couple of times. I liked the idea that the inspector could change the bad things that had happened in the past. The ending was not a total let down as so many of the current adventure games seem to be. I liked the game. I recommend it.
Summary: The third installment of the Dark Fall games reprises the Dowerton train station and hotel featured in Dark Fall: The Journal. This time, you are playing as a nameless Inspector who has come to investigate the 2005 disappearance of an 11 year old girl, in the hopes of resolving the mystery that ruined your career. Compared to the earlier Dark Fall games and especially the mammoth undertaking that is Lost Crown, Lost Souls is streamlined and plays quickly.
Summary: I thought this was a great game. Really freaked me out sometimes playing it though. You definately get immersed in the graphics and story, but some of the puzzles were not as intuitive and I did have to get help online a couple of times. But even that did not detract from how much I enjoyed the game.
Summary: I've played all Mr. Boakes games and will continue to do so. I was excited to see this new one was set at the Dowerton train station as I loved DF:TJ. I found this game to be less logical. I often found myself wondering what I was to do next. Maybe I just didn't quite "get" the text messages from the beyond. Also, it was darker. I prefer games that are less macabre and more 'anticipation'.
Summary: Review under Windows 7 x64. Preface ------------------------- It is amazing on what some people can do. Being a programmer myself, I admire the power, the work, the capabilities and the end-result of Mr. Boakes. Darkfall III - Lost Souls is another great game that any adventure gamer should not miss. Installation ------------------------- 1 DVD which completely installs to the hard disk, not needed afterwards to play the game and no stupid protection mechanisms. 100%.
