Summary: Very much a indie retro type vibe and the usual linear point and click follow the breadcrumb trail type of game. The female voice actors are competent though the male voice actors are just so not. The game sets up a nice style with its primarily black and white effect inter sprinkled with color for a stark visual effect. Overall very slow paced and atmospheric, but really lacks any form of real tension even when confronted by the bizarre.
I am still playing but have set aside as I'm not enthralled with it

Summary: It's in black and white which put me off right at the start. It does use some good imagination but the character is very stiff and not at all attractive. I would not recommend this game to any of my playing friends. I also do not like that you are not allowed to share this game with a family member..I've never had a game with that stipulation before. I am really sorry I bought this game and am not sure that I will even finish it.
Summary: I have played so many of these games; Scratches, the Dark Fall trilogy, Darkness Within, Gray Matter, Barrow Hill, Rhiannon, and others, and this one is by far my favorite. It has a really deep, perfectly evolving story that keeps you really interested- not a lot of fluff and filler that contributes nothing. I love the "real" landscape and background in the scenes, and I was surprised how much I liked the style of game play (not first person sight).
Summary: This game is lasting longer than any of the Nancy Drew games I play regularly. It is challenging and interesting. The storyline of the ghost hunting is one I enjoy anyway, but now I get to be the one investigating. Highly recommended to those who love to read, have a great imagination and can transport themselves into a story.
Summary: This game is a breath of fresh air. I felt like it was original, creepy, and had a great plot. I also enjoyed the backgrounds and villages came from real places in the UK, The down side of this game is the acting. It's pretty awful. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a thrill, horror, and historical fiction.
Summary: A good choice for adults not wanting a shooting game. I wouldn't have chosen a horror game, but I am about half way through it and it is not that scary. Story is more a treasure hunting adventure. Scenery is good. Plot is imaginative. Puzzles are standard fare but interesting. Night vision electronics very cool.
Sequence of Events and Patience Matters w/ This Game

Summary: This game was fun, but I had to use the "walkthrough" a few times. It got pretty tedious having to go back and forth over and over, and in the correct sequence a lot of times to get to the next step. I got tired of missing the sequence somehow. You think you've done it all in a particular scene and really you haven't done it in the proper sequence. You have to read the books within the games and really pay attention to what you're reading. It's like a riddle at times.
Summary: This game is similar to most adventure games that are out there and if you are into these games, like I am, it is well worth it. Some of the puzzles were a little hard for me so I had to cheat and use the walkthru. The game was fun to play and had a good story line to it. If you like adventure games similar to this, you will like this one.
Summary: I love this game. It is a little slow at first and I have to download a cheat/walkthrough sheet from the INternet because it is not intuitive for an old dame like me. I like the music and sound effects. It adds to the already spooky atmosphere. I like the characters and the scenery. Just have to remember to go through every room with a fine tooth comb! I advise you download a cheat/walkthrough to follow the game completely.
