  • Summary: It's not Shakespeare but no one is looking for their grandpa on an archeology dig here and there's no spooky mansion (or asylum) so its a big relief for those of us who would like a break from all that. The story is almost a spoof of those old noire gumshoe/spy movies with lines like "she snuffed me out like an old cigarette". A murder mystery-conspiracy, love story and with a twist of a little magical thinking. There is alot of dialogue.

  • Summary: Reasonable game based on the solve a mystery type theme as many are. It was more 'modern' looking in style than some. Storyline was okay, although I didn't real care for the ending. They had tried something a bit different with the ring idea and having to find things you couldn't see, but it was fairly straight forward and I think they could have done a bit more with it.

  • Summary: I like this one quite a bit--viewed maybe 15 minutes of the demo and decided that I'd go for another punch on my BFG punch card. Bring your patience for the load time--kinda like waiting for paint to dry. Other than that though, I can't really find any glaring negatives. The opening menu has all the options (including game vs. system cursor--game one was a bit sluggish, so I chose the system one).

  • Summary: I thought it was going to be another one of those silly little games from the title but after I played it for a few minutes, it grew on me because the scenes (I think they called it levels in the game) were fairly quick to get through and it made me want to find out what was next. The graphics could have been better but it was adequate enough to find most of the hidden objects.

  • Summary: I really like this game it holds interest and the locations are good. Some could use a lighter view but the items take time to find but so far are not impossible. I like the communications between the players and the "ring" activation is a great tool for finding items. It has good music and a pretty good story line. I would say it is worth the buy unless it ends quickly like some have been doing. Still worth the try. I enjoy the mystery and solving the murder.

  • Summary: I wish I could embellish on this game and point out something new but the first two reviews are awesome and say everything I want to. It was and is a refreshing game with extra twists and directions which add to the "cinema noir" feeling. The story is cool and grabs your attention from the first scene. I highly recco this game and I wasn't sure about going ahead and buying it until I read the reviews but I think this game is a keeper. Good job!

  • Summary: I liked this game a lot. The graphics were good, the music was appropriately entertaining, but the storyline/plot had me hooked. It almost felt like I was watching a movie rather than playing a game. I also liked how the mini-puzzles were an integral part of the plot and belonged to the context of the game (cops, intrigue, murder. ). for instance, you have to use a bookmark to crack the secret code, or use an ultraviolet pen to locate hidden phone numbers, etc.
