Reviews and Problems with Natural Threat: Ominous Shores

crashed at end
18 February 2014
Summary: I thought I had finally found a great game until it crashed at the end. I will probably start over and try again but will be very disappointed if it happens again. The game has lots of potential .
Summary: Amazon download, Win 7, fast&stable broadband, experienced HOG player Alawar games are among my faves, mainly because of the aesthetics, but this one is put together so carelessly that it doesn't deserve more than 3 stars, perhaps even fewer. The problem list: - Game crashed, with 2 minutes to go (not uncommon with Alawar games; game did save at the right place). - No (interactive) map: Much cumbersome time is spent going manually back and forth between locations.
Summary: this may sound silly, but seriously, who goes to that much trouble to hide a bottle of glass cleaner? I am actually playing a 2nd time because I have nothing else to do, but some of the elaborate hiding places for mundane items really don't make sense. it seems like they could have come up with a better way to incorporate mini-games and puzzles.
Summary: Giving it 4.5 stars for story content and art work - overall rating 3 stars (see below). That said, the clicking was probably meant for dramatic effect; but it was just plain annoying, the further you got into the game. If they decide to make a collector's edition, I hope they put in a map; and it would help if there were highlighted task locations. I relied more and more on the walk-thru as the game progressed. Occasionally, the HO items were not what the text said.
Summary: Natürliche Bedrohung - Unheilvolle Insel ist ein Spiel mit märchenhafte Grafik und für Anfänger besonders gut geeignet. Auf viele Wimmelbilder wird man nicht treffen.( Für mich war das gerade recht ) Du bist ganz alleine auf der Insel und wirst bei dem zuviel hin - und hergerenne ( gefühlte Hunderte von Schritten ) kein Mensch oder Tier begegnen. Rätsel und Puzzle haben wir viele, aber alles schon dagewesen. Viel denken braucht man dabei allerdings nicht.
