Summary: This is one of the best adventure game stories I've played in a long time; the storyline and characters really draw you in. I have not been so involved in a game with the Gabriel Knight games. This game is a gem.
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: I also have PC with Windows 7 OS and could not install the game, after several attempts and different ways to try to communicate with a non-existent manufacturer for help, I wrote to Amazon and they ended up refunding my money even though I purchased the game through a different vendor, their customer support is excellent!
Summary: I loved this game. The random splashes of color in a mostly black and white atmosphere gave it just the right level of creepiness that this game was striving for. The story line was engaging to the bitter end. Definitely kept you guessing. The cottage was scary as all get out. I was literally cringing each time I had to walk into that bathroom. I loved the ghost hunting aspect of it. That right there made this game very fun.
Summary: It was like reading a novel, the plot was so detailed. Very exciting and intricate. My only complaint is there was no way to jump past some repetitive cut scenes, and the captions really could have used a spell check.
Summary: Please see Autodidact's one-star review for an accurate description of this game. Many of these reviews had me screaming with laughter - I read them after finishing the game. I only hated the game a little, and I did finish it, so that's saying something. All I can add to that excellent review is this: The black and white graphics were an interesting arty treatment, but my aging eyes had some trouble picking out the cursor at times.
Summary: The puzzles were ok and a little on the easy side, but the main character Nigel is a bit of a wimp which is the only annoying drawback of this game. I'd rather play a non-p.c. character that doesn't whine about such things as a "Punch and Judy" puppet show being misogynistic. He is also a bit mind numbingly slow on his feet.
