Summary: Some of the things are hard to do because it doesn't give you much information. It's perfect for people that are into trying to crack problems and are into things like that. It was a Christmas present and I can honestly say that she loves it. It frustrates her a little, but I think that's part of it's charm.
This will make you hate your life but you'll keep coming back.

Summary: Baroque is definitely not for the easily frustrated (like me!), but it still is pretty fun to play. Dying is actually a good thing to do, and is how you get 90% of your endings! If you want a challenging game to play on the Wii, definitely buy this.
Summary: If you RE pro gamer who likes the unusual, likes a challenge, and is sick of long, in depth story lines and linear game play (I DO!), then this game is for you. You die and lose al your equipment and everything when you die. That makes everything unique, and it separates this game from all those games where you just die and start from where you died. Too easy. I like long, story rich, rpgs, and jrpgs, so I did not fall in love with this game.
Summary: We played Safecracker with 8 year old kids. It was a fun family game that required patience and some thought. The kids came away with a great sense of satisfaction with each puzzle solved. They are already asking for another game like it.
Summary: Some people may not like the fact that the goal is to die and that when you die, you start over from the beginning and at level 1. Some people may. Some may not like that it's so blasted repetitive. Again, some people may. It's not for everyone, but I myself think it's pretty original. For one thing, It doesn't follow your standard RPG elements. Yes, you can do level up and have to deal with status effects.
Summary: Okay, this game is the ultimate for puzzle fans.If you are a fan of logic puzzles you'll love this. It couples the challenge of puzzles with the fun of mystery. There are 30 safes (puzzles) to unlock and each one provides a clue to the next. Now, why didn't I give it five stars. IT'S RIDCULOUSLY HARD. The first few days I didn't enjoy it because it was just too hard and I have a 151 IQ so I'm no slouch at logic. Then I realized the problem.
Summary: This is definitely a thinking-person's game, and also one requiring persistence and patience. Some of the safes are no-brainers (find a key in one safe, and it unlocks another safe), many have a clever puzzle to solve (manipulate a series of switches or buttons), while some are of the "unknown code keypad" type. This last kind proved the most difficult, because there's no feedback other than not getting the code right.
Summary: This is a fun puzzle game. My boyfriend and I (we're middle-aged) really enjoyed solving the puzzles together. The puzzles are very unique and it's satisfying when you figure out the answer. It was very addictive. Only one complaint: we finished it within 24 hours (2 sittings) -- I wish it could have lasted longer. Oh well -- I'll give it to my brother now and he'll enjoy it too. This game is very much like Myst, et al -- only with mostly just different types of safes.
Summary: So safecracker could be fun, depending on how smart you really are. Without the help of a strategy guide, or even some subtle hints from someone you know, this game can be BRUTAL. The good points: The game has varying kinds of puzzles and varying degrees of difficulty. It's rewarding when you finally finish a puzzle that you have been working on for a while The bad points: Some of the puzzles are brutal, and some will have you asking "HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO GET THAT...
