The game has its moments. It was a CE at another site -- I wouldn't pay $20 for it. The production value is fairly impressive, the story not really so much. In total, I would say it is worth demoing -- you might like it more than I did.

Game locks up and does not load on my XP laptop but works fine in my desktop with Win7.

It's terrible! I got sea sick (vertigo) and nausea only by playing it... May be it's a good game, but waaay too realistic movements for me.

I have tried this game on 2 other sites, and now with BF. It never got out of loading on them, and not with BF either. I spent 3 minutes of my demo time witing for it to load. When BF has the ability to put out such gems as MCF, why on earth would you choose to grab table scraps from other sites.

Wow. I wonder why they aren't offering the CE version on this site? That's kind of odd, isn't it. I played this game from a different site and didn't care for the game. I never could quite put my finger on why exactly - the sum of the parts I guess. I didn't get involved in the story, I thought the graphics were a bit subpar, the protagonist grunting and groaning through the whole game got on my nerves and I thought the ending was just plain stupid. I was not happy with my purchase on this one.

Bought the Premium Edition over a month ago on another site for 6.99 when a few of their CE games were on sale. They're called Premium Edition over there. Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that this game felt like I was IN a movie of the caliber like 'The Titanic'. The movie, I mean game is an action/adventure theme. Cruise ship falls apart in rough seas at night. Love the intro. Story, voice acting, visuals excellent.

Sorry to see some of the XP people are having issues here. I ran this game on vista .... no problems from downloading the game elsewhere. Long game, too. About 8-9 hours for me on the Premium Edition. You can go back and forth between the different sections of the ship and not necessarily in a predetermined order. Forgot what the other reviewers call it, but you can check different areas, finish parts and come back to it to complete. Has inventory and all the regular things in most of the IHOG, Adventure, Puzzle games. (Did I miss anything?)

Just when you come to the end of the game and disappointed because like a good movie you want it to continue.....there's the bonus alternative ending and a prologue prior to the night in question, that this version doesn't have.. Even though this one is a SE I'm sure it's still great. Fantastic as far as I'm concerned. Adventure IHOG medium difficulty, good mini games (no compare the picture minis) and very enjoyable. Not the usual creepy, spooky IHOGS that dominate over here.
I will play again, but need to catch up with some spooky, creepy games that I bought here and still haven't played. Some from over a year ago. I love the creepy IHOGs and was surprised even though this one isn't, that it actually is a very entertaining game
LOL. Enjoy!
Edit for typos.

Not having any tech issues-downloaded no problem, and I've played about 15 mins. of the demo. Will play some more tomorrow-so annoyed by the music, and the fact that even if you turn the music down, in the cut scenes the volume goes back up-hate playing games on mute, but I might have to do that with this game. Like the story so far-will give it another try later!

Hi LapTopDancerr

I think the term you were looking for is "non-linear" game play.

I played the game on my XP with no problem but as I said in my earlier post, it was purchased at another site a while back.

Played 15 minutes. Very nice graphics, I guess the story is not too complicated, rescue you family and this poor steward (wonder how he felt when the roof crashed down, but I suppose he's still alive). I do tend to get a little lost, so far I'm stuck in the casino and have to mend this machine, it's obvious that I would die to play during a ship wreck. That's the first game where I get more than one item after an H0 scene (up to 3 !!). Up to now, mini games pretty easy (I hate STD). You do have to collect personal objects on your way, suppose it adds to your score. I like the fact that you really feel you're trapped in a sinking ship but there's no creepy effect added, so you quietly go to your chores. If it's long enough (will check the WT), it seems quite a good game. Most probably a buy.

Just checked the WT and it says 7 chapters so it should be fairly long...

It definitely is a walk-thru-necessary game for me. If I got through to the bedroom and bathroom and got out onto the deck, do you know about how much longer it would be?


I flicked through the WT to see the chapters and it appears that you are in Chapter 2. BUT 2 seems longer than 1 . I think. Does this help?

Way too short!!!
Excellent graphics, and once i managed to get past the 'loading' screen, was an enjoyable game.
Except that i finished it in 1hr 47mins - not nearly long enough.

Wow! 1 hr 47 mins!!

It took me a lot longer than that to play this game. I am no speed demon though.

I have just finished this game and I have to say I really enjoyed it.I loved the whole thing, especially the up side down ship, the hogs were clear and the mini games were simple but fun.I wasnt sure at first but it grew on me, I would recomend it.

This was a good game but as I finished in 2 hours 2mins I don't really consider it very good value for money.
