Summary: Unbelievably eerie and suspenseful game, the atmosphere was creepy beyond belief. Just the idea that I'm compelled by the main character to spend four days in a deserted old mansion with no electricity and he wants me to go climbing into the basement boiler in the dead of night to explore the sound of where the scratches are coming from?! Yikes!
Summary: I disliked this game more than any I have ever played. Morbid, dark and evil, not to mention you are the sole person in the game, except for Jerry's voice on the other end of a phone line. Although the game play includes several different locations, you never leave the grounds of the manor until the end of the story when the gate is now mysteriously unlocked and you drive away. The ending only added to my dislike, though I'm sure it was done with plans for a sequel.
Summary: Horribly slow and difficult game. Yes, you have freedom to explore without help and they treat you like a grown-up by not holding your hand, but that's what makes it difficult. You waste a lot of time walking around and looking at papers. In addition, the 360 degree view is dizzying. Not much excitement, but definitely creepy.
Summary: Now, I'm a big fan of horror-esque games, the ones which include more exploring and less survival tactics from rabid zombie-humanoid monsters. Being a typical point-in-click game, you start as a writer wanting to explore a reported creepy mansion while trying to finish your book. While the story definitely gets a bit 'creepier' as it moves along, what really makes you jump is the sound track. Eerie, totally, and that is what kept me on the edge of my seat.
Summary: I would give this game less than 1 star if possible. The game looks tempting, takes a while to download, but is next to impossible to play due to no instructions on what to do. I have a pretty good idea of how to play, but some of the items provided don't work as they should. Also, I am giving big points off for the opening which does not allow you to skip and wastes valuable playing time. I don't recommend this game.
Summary: Pros: Excellent graphics. Very creepy, labyrinth-like house. I kept getting lost! New places to explore at every turn. Super spooky music & sound effects. A reasonably long-lasting game, especially if you don’t use the walk-through (but see Cons). Extremely suspenseful (but see also Cons). Cons: The elaborately crafted story completely fell apart at the end. Maybe I’m just stupid, but… what?
Summary: Auch ein Mensch wie ich hat ab und zu Phasen, in denen er sich in eine virtuelle Welt zurück zieht und dann beginne ich meist, PC Spiele zu kaufen und dann natürlich auch zu spielen. So kam es, dass ich mir vor einiger Zeit wieder ein paar Games besorgt habe und meine nächsten Berichte werden wohl mehr zu diesen Spielen als zu technischem tendieren.
