I'll agree that this was a beautiful, enjoyable game. I love spooky atmosphere games and this was perfect. Gameplay was fantastic and the story was great. My only complaint was the length and ease of play. I got through with no skips and only a couple hints in an hour and forty-five minutes and so was a little dissapointed that I'd spent money on it.

Can't wait for the next installment, though. Please make it longer and let us spend a little more time in that fascinating world?

I loved this game. The puzzles and story gave it a really nice change of pace from the typical HOG that comes out these days. The graphics, scenes and puppets were beautiful. One that is worth buying and isn't finished in 10 mins.

This wasn't as disturbing as some games but I DO think Big Fish should elaborate a little, like they do in movie ratings, like "violence" or blood and gore....condescension towards women ...heh heh.

I am taken aback by the bloody scene and wish I had been forwarned about that, thankfully it wasn't quite as bad as another one or two I've played in the past... but other than that, found it beautifully done. I just wonder also why to make it adult games they think it requires some gore. Must be for the gen xers.

Bought the game today and finished it same day. I have to say I really liked the game. It could have been a bit harder. I also enjoyed the story line.

It was a fun game though I would have preferred it to be HOG-less...was annoying when the rest was fun...got bogged down with no apparent help and gave up....Kinda feel as though I wasted my money.........

I have purchased this game recently and and can say "ditto" to the other players comments. EXCEPT....... ....for about the last hour or more I have NOT gotten a single clue as to where to go next. I am really frustrated !!

I just finished the game. Loved the graphics and going from room to room. Wish the game had been more of a challenge for things to find as well as the puzzles. I would like to have had to go back through all the rooms searching for something that ended this sequel.......it would have stretched the game out more I think. Overall this was an excellent game. I was one of the beta testers and thought I would never get this game downloaded, but with the help of CS and Christine I was able to delete the old file and play the game.

ETS: Look forward in probably a year to the sequel.

Loved this game! Reminded me so much of an updated SYBERIA. Yes it was short and not too hard but like everyone says, it was so beautiful to look at and was fun. If they could make more like this, just a little longer and a little harder I would be the happiest fish in the pond!

I was really enjoying playing the game until it got right up to the end. The way the story changes ..... well I wont go into it, but to go from nice to not nice, (I didn't like that at all. The last part of it is so completely different, more watching the actions (that I didn't like) than playing the game the way it had been going. And It was a shocking change in story form. Then I went back to start over (up to a point) and it takes you to exactly the same searches not new ones. So you play it once and then everything is just the same. It says there is more to come but with the story going the way it does I wouldn't even think of playing a continuation of this story. I had really liked the setup and pictures but after playing the full game I REALLY wish I hadn't bought it. I definitely will not even let my friends know that I have this game.

I think this is a great game for October. I like the eerie music and the artwork. It has a haunting feeling that I like to have around this time of year. I also like the little surprises when you click on certain things such as the bats and the statue. I am definitely buying this one.

Didn't take long but the price was fair. Can't wait to see what happens in part two. Like the previous reviews have already noted the graphics & music were both above par, and there's just enough spooky factor to keep you on the edge and interested in what's next. Somebody certainly put their heart into this game, and I'm definitely looking for the next installment!
Until then

The graphics in this game are phenomenal! The attention to detail is the best I've seen. The music is beautifully done and appropriate. The scenes load quickly.The gameplay is not super challenging but what ther heck. I highly recommend this game.

Really enjoyed this game. although it's very short and not one which I would particularly want to replay - but since games are now only $7 I don't mind that too much.

Replaying was not any differ. I hoped it will be any other way to play this story, but I was bored
This game is very short, very easy and pretty much the same when you replay it.
Would realy love to spend my money on smth better and longer

I thought the game was brilliant.
I rate the PUPPETSHOW game very highly and will be very happy to see a sequel.
