Summary: There were things I really liked about this game (game play is fun - cool gadgets and puzzles), but it took me a while to get into it. I didn't care for the graphics at first, but they gain more depth once you spend some time with it. At points it is scary and suspenseful, at times ridiculous...
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: I Think I was hoping for something more along the lines of Broken sword ,this doesn't come close ,too linear and pretty boring for the most part :[ BUT I did play it through to the end ,so it must have something going for it ,which is more than can be said for my next purchase ...
Summary: Alchemia This is a well-produced but short game. It is flash based, so no right clicking allowed. The animations and graphics are polished and amusing. Saving is only allowed at the beginning of each of the chapters.
Summary: A very well thought out nicely designed game with lovely spooky moments in it to the point where you're not sure if you want to enter certain rooms etc. The gadgets you're given are a nice touch to play with, the plot is intreguing and the black-and-white style of the game adds atmosphere.

Summary: One of the best aspects of The Lost Crown are the huge areas to explore. When the game begins, your play area is limited, but as you progress, you unlock many, many places to go and things to do.
Summary: This game looks great and at times creates genuine thrills and spills but holy moly... the frustrating 'real-time' plodding of the character around the locations drives you INSANE with frustration. Why the game producers couldn't have put a shortcut map or something like it goodness only knows.
Summary: The atmosphere in this game is tremendous, truly spooky. The choice of presenting the game in B&W adds to that. Unbeatable. Some of the puzzles are a little irritating with their seemingly random solutions. The random searches were the worst.
