Summary: This game is a true whodonnit with an interesting story, good HOG's and some minigames all needly mixed into a nice adventure. It is not for children though. The graphics are wonderful and very well crafted. I needed the hint system a few times only, but it was working perfectly. Even though it is a big game, loading times were reasonable and on my okder pc there were no glitches or other shortcomings in this game. Well done Alawar!
Summary: Mountain Crime: Requital had an interesting story, though it borrows a bit from stories like "And Then There Were None." You play as a doctor who is called to a remote hotel by a new patient. When you get to the hotel, it is mysteriously devoid of staff. The few people you do meet in the hotel either disappear or turn up dead, and it is pretty clear there's a killer on the loose. Only who is it? Someone you've met at the hotel or someone else entirely.
Summary: I loved this game. It was like the old who dun it movies where a group of people are duped into coming to a hotel's grand opening and then trapped there by bad weather and a broken bridge. One by one they are murdered. If you can handle seeing some 3D dead people this was a great game with lots of plot, plenty of suspence and a very good length. There were a few what to do next moments but that just shows it was a good sized game with lots of rooms and inventory objects.
Summary: This was such a beautiful game, minus the 3D characters (which did not seem to scale to the environment). It was very entertaining and a decent length. Now, a couple things that lacked in Mountain Crime: Requital were the characters which I already mentioned and some of the slider puzzles. For example, in one puzzle, there are 16 puzzle slots with 4 extra for storing pieces.
Summary: Alawar games are some of my favorite games. This one was not an exception. I found this game to be satisfying in length, have good graphics, the hints refilled quickly and the storyline wasn't completely boring. I liked having choices in the questions the good doctor posed to other characters. I doubt,however, that whatever choice was made that there was any real effect on the outcome. The HO's offered some challenges.
Summary: Talk about random ... who did these programmers get to write their story? Third graders who know just about every cliche in the book? I love HOGs but this game was just too weird. The HOGs were great. Clean and clear graphics, and the ability to recognize the objects on the search list. The graphics were great too. Some were a bit fuzzy like certain characters were kind of crudely pasted in as an afterthought. But for the HOG portion of the game, it was outstanding.
Summary: I had fun playing this game. The story is sort of par for the current theme course of mysterious things happening, people missing or murdered and a mystery to solve. At least there were no ghosts or magic tadas that save the world, which are not for me. The game play was very good, as were the puzzles. There were only 2 puzzles that I skipped....I just don't get Chess, and another block puzzle that needed to have a space created for a wood block to go thru a saw.
Summary: I had mixed feelings about this game from the very start, but since it went on sale for $2.99 at BFG I gave it a shot, hoping that the game would peak my interest as I progressed. This game was very flat to me. Although it had a somewhat interesting story, the ending to me was just horrible. Why didn't the twin brother just kill off Charlie and the others instead of framing his brother?
Summary: When a game has mixed reviews - I am always willing to give the game a shot by purchasing on sale and never as a CE. With MCR, I made the right decision. What worked was the actual gameplay, clear graphics, the puzzles could be challenging, the HO scenes were put togethers i.e. Steve the Sheriff, so that worked, your main character's voice was a dead ringer for actor Steve Guttenberg i.e. rather annoying. If you are into dead bodies, this game would be your cup of tea.
Summary: I am not sure why this game seems to have such great user reviews, because I think the official GZ review was right on target. I suppose not every reviewer is as harsh as I am, though! "Mountain Crime" definitely did have some good aspects. The graphics were good, nicely meeting a high standard that many players have come to expect from good HOGs.
