Summary: 3.5 stars. Not bad at all. This game didn't have the best graphics but they were pretty good. Scenes were ok and not too junk pile. I thought the story although predictable because the "scientist gone mad wants to rule the world" theme was used many times but it was still pretty interesting. Nothing too ridiculous. Gameplay was easy. Puzzles were fun but easy. Good combination of hidden objects scenes as well as inventory items.
Summary: I enjoyed this adventure HOG - maybe not as polished as some of their other games, but overall had all the right elements which played along with the story. Mix of adventure, HOG and puzzles - nothing overly novel but all quite enjoyable and worth playing.
Summary: I did a Beta test on this game a while ago, and have been waiting for it to become available. I'm quite satisfied with the game. I found the story interesting, if not new (but there are only a few stories in the world, they're basically all the same), and I liked the graphics, even if they were a bit cartoony. There were no weird angles as in the incredibly bad Silent Scream: The Dancer. The background sounds were appropriate and not annoying.
Nettes Hidden-Object-Game - zwar ohne Überraschungen, aber mit düsterer Atmosphäre

Summary: "Dark Ritual" ist ein spannendes Hidden-Object-Game, das sich aus den typischen Elementen dieser inzwischen extrem beliebten Spielart zusammensetzt: Eine unheimliche Hintergrundgeschichte, viele Wimmelbilder, zahlreiche verschlossene Türen, ein paar Minispiele - fertig ist das kurzweilige Wimmelbildspiel! Zwar bietet "Dark Ritual" im Vergleich mit anderen Genre-Titeln nichts wirklich bahnbrechend Neues, trotzdem weiß das Spiel gut zu unterhalten.
