If this is supposed to be a brand new game, how come I've downloaded it only to be told my trial has expired?

I will keep my remarks brief as other fishies are really gonna have a field day reviewing this one...lol, but I will say that the game has gorgeous graphics, 3 modes of play, well done voice overs, music and sound effects befitting a spooky story. Very interactive with HOG scenes not too difficult. This one is right up my alley so a definite buy here.

Absolutely Grabbinbugs! I agree 100% and 30 minutes into the game it's a buy for me. Love these "creepy, crawly" games! Thanks Big Fish!

PS BFG ... Our VAT is now 20% so I owe you $.34 .


ETA

Having played a fair bit more I have to admit that I am not as ecstatic about the game as I originally was due to the large number of hidden object scenes ... yes I do know that that it is a H0 game . It is just that I, personally, would have preferred a bit more to do between each scene so that they weren't quite so close together.

Wow, the graphics of this game are wonderful. I haven't seen a game this crisp and clear for some time. It runs really well on my PC. I bought it after just 15 min. When you download the trial it doesn't take very long, but if you purchase then it gives the large file warning thing. As mentioned by someone else, there are 3 modes of play. Casual, where there is no penalties and more help. Challenge, where there is a clicking penalty and vague hints. And extreme mode, where there is no help, no skipping puzzles, timed H?O scenes, and a serious clicking penalty. From the main menu there is a trophy option for those who like to collect trophies. There is also something a bit different, when you do the H?O scenes, you can switch to match 3 mode and for every eye you get to the bottom, one of the items on your list is taken off. I am off to play some more.

I beta tested this for BFG and liked it a lot from what I remember (it was a while ago). Excited to DL and revisit although don't really want to spring for CE again.

In the options there are music and sound volume. Music got on my nerves after a while. Detect panoramic screen - this did nothing on my PC. Black bars either side. Does not bother me. Film grain - I think this made the H0 scenes a little clearer. Tool tips and match 3 hints. Custon cursor and high details. Not sure if the last 2 did anything. There are 3 levels of difficulty, I chose the middle one. Some items are a little small for some gamers. There are trophies to collect, this should be a nice touch. You can swith to Match 3 in the hidden object scene to aid finding an item. Did not see the point of this. On the whole it seems like an interesting game. SG does not work until you buy. On the fence at the moment. Awaiting faster players reviews to make up my mind. Have fun all.

Downloading, you sound quite enthusiastic, but another CE !, if I buy the game it will have to be really, really good. Mortlake was and it was a SE.

Wow graphics super clear, love the look of the game. First 5 minutes knew this is a buy for me.

Like all the options. Hope this game has the length and not to short.

This game ends a real dry spell for me. Only wish the top info black margin wasnt there.

This looks like a real winner.

Super happy game day to all

I beta tested this game. It is a spectacular game with a riveting plot and gameplay that is a challenge without being horribly too hard. I turn the sound off when I can so I can't comment on the music but the graphics are crystal clear, the hidden objects were well hidden and most were the slap in the head kind - how could I have missed that!.

I wanted to know what happened and how it was going to play out from near the beginning and I was truly tested but not overwhelmingly so on the hard setting.

This is a great game. Enjoy!

Played it for 5 mins and bought it. Really great graphics, interesting storyline and I am a fan of the interaction with the game. I like the different modes of play as well as choosing between a match 3 or a **** to obtain an object to move forward. Off to play some more and provide a response when complete.

Beautiful graphics, good story,oh sooooo spooky(someone hold me, I'm scared) lol. It's a great game but I'll wait for SE.

I rate this "FINE SWINE"

"FINE SWINE" Great game-bells and whistles,best,greatest, I love it.
"PIGLET" Good game-your basic run of the mill Hog. Only for true hog lover's.
"PORK BELLY" Likable for some,but not for everyone.
"TROTTER" Bad game-pig's foot,don't run away with buying it. lol
"PIG DOWN" and rolling in the mudd" -Bad Bad game, don't go near it or you'll get soiled. lol

Glad to read such raving reviews. It better be something if I have to shell out 13.99 for it. You can always depend on a CE to be good. Am downloading now.

WOW !!!!! Creepy and scary never looked so good this game jumps off the screen and grabs you ! It pulls you all the way in!!! What a AWESOME game ! Beautiful graphics freaking scary atmosphere just has it all what more can I say ! This game is just WOW ! Bought it and loving every minute of it. The old dude even looks like the guy from the movie Phantasm I couldn't believe the resemblance. Voice over's are wonderful everything is so crisp and clear and easy to see and if you don't feel like looking for stuff you can switch it to a match 3 which I thought was a really cool touch and something that is very new. I can't say enough good things about this game it is just great if you don't play anymore games this year you have to try this one you want be disappointed. It is great from the get go it is one that pulls you in from the beginning and takes you for a ride. This game is simply CREEPYLICIOUS! Thanks so much Big Fish for this scary jewel. Love it !
