Summary: I could not get the hang of this game the first time around. You have to figure out what manipulations you have to do to create a magic trick. I THOUGHT I had it right, but had to keep on using a cheat sheet for the magic. I guess I am just not meant to be a magician.
Summary: Starts off with a bang but ends in a muddle. Jane Jensen has recently been accused of sexism towards women in her latest video games and this is a perfect example. She takes an intriguing story about a young woman (Sam) who gets in over her head with no easy exit and turns it into a sophomoric and trite romance about a professor obsessed with his dead wife and the college co-ed obsessed with taking her place in his affection (not Sam).
Summary: It took me awhile to get thru with this game because I only get to play on my down time at work. I own a store and pizza joint and so when I am not helping ppl I get to play. so, point being it was a great length for a game I think. I stayed every entertained thru the whole thing.
Summary: Played this through and I really enjoyed it. Reminded me of the old school adventure games which I have missed lately. The story was engaging, the puzzles just the right amount of difficulty, and good length. I hope Jane Jensen creates more content for us to enjoy!
Summary: It is hard for me to not compare this to a Gabriel Knight game. It was enjoyable, though there were a few parts that were not intuitive. The story was compelling, but not as engrossing as in GK games. I wanted to care about Sam and David, but I never did as much I did with Gabriel and Grace. If you can find this for <$10 and like Jensen's games, I would hesitatingly recommend this.
Summary: This has to be one (if not THE) best adventure games I've played. Pros: - Story lines were first rate - Creative storyline (I liked the mystery) - Good Voice acting - Graphics were well done - Creative and well-thought-out puzzles - Did not assume the player was an idiot - meaning everything has a meaning and you know why things happen they we they do. At least most of the time.
