Summary: Played the SE version and the ending was really fulfilling. Game keeps you guessing to the end. What I liked - the map showed areas of interest; when a HO was too dark to see - using the FN key & F7 to brighten the game worked flawlessly, did not need to leave the game to lighten or darken the screen. Good job Alawar Enterainment. If your hungry for only HO puzzles, then this the game for you - I would say there are 10 HO puzzles to any other.
Summary: If you're looking for a high quality game with a good story worth spending your money on, this is not that game. The 2 stars are for game length, and a setup that keeps you guessing till the end. That's about it really. The cons: 1) Too many horrid, unplayable HO scenes. - Same scenes over and over again, many times searching for the same objects.
Summary: Nicely done game. Your job is to set out and explore the rumors behind a spooky opera house where everything is not as it seems. There are colorful characters you will encounter along the way, and many scenes to explore. There are interactive puzzles that lead from one location to the next, and each scene has a list of hidden objects to find. The hint timer refills very quickly, which was nice.
Summary: I wasn't all that impressed with this game. I didn't like looking for the HO's because they were not easy to find! Most of the HO's were very small or I wouldn't notice them until I hit the "Hint" button. And even then,many of them,I still couldn't make out what item it was until I looked at the list. And then after the frustration of trying to locate the HO's~you then have to find another item(s) that has to be used with another item!
Summary: Maybe I'm just a fusspot, but this game was absolutely painful for me. The story dragged on and on and on, the characters were tiresome and unappealing, and the HO scenes were horrible. Yes, the game was very pretty, but the sheer mess of the HO scenes was a huge thorn in the side, to the point that it nearly killed the game for me. The contrast between painted objects and photographic pictures was horrid and ruined whatever loveliness there was in the scenes.
