  • Summary: Although I can understand some criticism about this game (which certainly is not perfect, and it cannot be considered a classic) I do not understand some ratings... some very negative. I must say, despite the general graphics (not up-to-date, not for the 2008) and some enigmas (a bit 'too difficult sometimes), the interesting setting, the very complete and mature plot, the sense of growing tension, and some small "gems" that I do not reveal (spoiler), made ​​me really...

  • Summary: It is by far not the best adventure game, but it has that charming limitation of relatively old games I personally like. You must read all documents you find, for many times the answer is in them. I actually like that, and the texts are not long nor too many so reading them isn't boring at all.

  • Summary: I decided to come back and play this original game before playing the new release in the series. I can honestly say that I wasn't disappointed that I did. HOURS of play, good Lord I lost track of the hours. After years of playing games of this type, I rate them by if I have to look for a walkthrough to figure it out. For me this is the #1 sign I've found a great game. PROS: -Graphics were beautiful and held up crystal clear on my large monitor.

  • Summary: Although the game probably does warrant a fifth star I stop at four because it was too difficult to play through without the walk through information. There should have been some hints to build on so you had an idea what to do next. As it was I'd get to an area and suddenly have no idea what to do to move on. After several times going through section after section I'd turn to the walk through and discover what to do next.

  • Summary: I thoroughly enjoyed this game. I agree with the gamezebo review that too much time was spent looking for objects (I didn't see the tip to hit the spacebar to illuminate all of the interactive objects until the game was over). However, the gamezebo review also criticized the puzzles for being too cryptic. I really really like it when the puzzles are bizarre. It took me a while to even figure out what the moving parts were on some of them.

  • Summary: Excellent graphics, compelling story, and music that draws you in. However, difficulty level is extremely high, and I used a walk-through more than I liked. I would rate it 5 stars but sometimes the puzzles and tasks to do were too obscure. Definitely not for the novice adventurer, but still a very well-done challenging adventure game. I bought it with no regrets.

  • Summary: I really enjoyed this game! There are many house of game play, plus the scenes are beautiful, puzzles are logical and not too hard, and there is a lot of suspense.

  • Summary: No way in the world could I have gotten through this game without two complete walkthroughs and the Universal Hint System (great resource if some don't know of it - gives only 1 hint at a time). Even WITH those aids, still got frustrated and stopped playing for days at a time until I was ready to face it again. But worth it! Very unusual locations and interesting cut scenes. More like watching a movie at times.
