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: I was looking for a game to challenge me a bit. I think I might have bit off more than I can chew with Safecracker. The object is to find Adams' will, in his huge house, in his millions of safes. Sound easy? Not. Fun...yes. This game will make you think and will take some time. After an evening spent with my husband on the laptop searching for clues and me holding the controls we managed to get a few safes open.
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: 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: Although I did not purchase this game from Amazon, if you are thinking about buying it, please do. If, of course, you are into games that don't require precision aim, shooting abilities and the ability to respawn. This game is pretty addicting, considering I bought it on a Friday night and didn't stop playing it until I had beaten it 15 hours later. There aren't many clues to go on (which can be frustrating!
