Showing 1-10 of 23

Summary: Great plot and wonderful scenery however if you don't get frustrated by pixel hunting needed to progress the plot or the awful character animation, the James T Kirk-esque voice acting will certainly get on your tits.
Summary: Fantastic for adventure game lovers! Amazing story, VERY long and immersive. Beautiful backgrounds and interesting use of black and white. The only drawback keeping this from a perfect 10 is the poor character models/animations. If you love a good, spooky story and are an adventure game fan, this game is perfect for you.
Summary: A brilliant, imaginative exploration of the classic ghost story. Moaning about screen ratios is pointless, given that his game is one of the best examples the genre has to offer. A great ghost story, lovingly told and presented. Anyone who enjoys a good, solid adventure game is bound to love this one.
Summary: One horrible adventure gone bad.... can't really say about the graphics, apparently the programmer doesn't want to spend time to FIX the simplest graphic problem. 1. there is no way in game to change the aspect ratio, therefore playing this game in widescreen is next to impossible to enjoy. 2. in-game character's movement looks like they are moonwalking. 3. no vsync 4. can't change in game resolution stuck in 1024x768 game play is just point and click. it is just bad....
Summary: I found that this game was hard to play because it was difficult to find the exact spot that you needed to click on to get to another area. I was disappointed to find that the game was all in black and white. There was too much going back and forth and I gave up after getting stuck about a quarter of the way through when I couldn't get into the area which was in the next sequence in the game.
Conclusion: I've gotta be honest when i first picked this up i was ready to dismiss it based on an unknown publisher to me and what looked like dated graphics for this day and age. Thank god i took a punt on it, the aforementioned graphics are a bit wooden as is the voice acting but you must, repeat MUST look through this as the story is fantastic and brilliantly presented to you, the gamer.
Conclusion: Ive been playing this game for a couple of months, so its pretty long, but to be fair i play it for a couple of hours every now and then. However it is just such a good game, if you love ghost hunting games and point and click games this is just a bonus! Ive sat playing this in the dark and ive had to turn the lights on because ive got that spooked by this game. Theres so much to unravel and its such a great mystery. I really recommend it to anyone! Great Game!
Conclusion: Excellent game. Johnathan Boakes has produced another memorable PC game . As its creator he has meticulously planned out a great story line apparently covering multi time zones. it combines logical puzzle solving with some great spooky moment definately a game to play alone on the dark with headphones on to get an even better effect. Quite scaryy in the churches . The attention to detail is superb.
Conclusion: bought this game on a whim as i love the whole RPG genre like Monkey Island and Broken Sword. At first I thought what a pile of rubbish mainly down to the characters voices and rigid movements of the lead character but when you look past and get involved in the game it's absolutely brilliant!
