Summary: I really liked Gothic Fiction; it is a suitably long play. But, I am getting tired of the poor live action actors. Its more annoyance than a help. It worked in Return to Ravenhearst, but it doesn't need to be in about every game there is now. The game is somewhat predictable with its witch theme. The witch herself is not frightening at all, and I agree with one of the earlier reviewers--- do we really need all these CE editions?
Summary: Looks like I'm going against majority opinion, but I'm liking this game so far. Yes, the story is sort of ludicrous, but aren't they usually, for ERS and every other game designer? What I'm liking so far is the story progressing without a zillion HOS.
Summary: I would agree with other reviewers regarding the same old story lines used by these HOG adventure games. Enough of the witches or psychos abducting your daughter scenarios! That story is getting really old. With a tile like "Gothic Fiction" I was expecting to get a story in true Gothic style akin to stories from Lovecraft or Poe, but I was sadly disappointed to get more run-of-the-mill.
Summary: Well, it's back to my regularly scheduled iHOG's that involves witches, demons, kidnapping, and the like. For some odd reason these subjects and iHOG's tend to match. Each has a unique story line that makes me want to try it just to see if I like it and this one falls under the 'I like' category. It starts out in a cut scene of a bus taking people somewhere. You won't know where until you read the first diary.
Summary: There are 3 modes of play & adjustments for screen, cursor and level of sounds on the main menu.. This is an adventure not a HO game (no sparkling areas); you do need to find items; most are used right away, but some are carried so inventory can become bloated. The story is trying to rescue your abducted daughter. You encounter spirits of children who have been taken by a witch.
Summary: Oh gosh, I really don't know where to begin with this game. I read reviews of it and was expecting much, much more. In the end it was, for me, a great big disappointment. I tend to enjoy live actors (as a matter of personal preference, I think the Mystery Case Files games does it the best), but like PersistentCat pointed out, these live actors were just horrible.
Summary: I have to say I'm a pretty big fan of games like "Gothic Fiction: Dark Saga" -- the pure adventure/puzzle games without hidden object scenes. But unfortunately this game in particular didn't quite measure up to my hopeful expectations for it. It was OK in the beginning. Even though I really don't like live action imagery included in casual games and it was clear that it would be present in "Dark Saga," I thought the game itself could still be good.
