This is a but I have yet to play RTR. It was fascinating and fun and everything an iHOG adventure game should be. Shame on you guys for making fun at acting. It was great. We're not the Academies here. Everyone who likes the genre will love this game.

I played and replayed this game just like all the MCF games. I didn't like the corny ending but I didn't expect Oscar winning acting I guess. Overall great game and glad I played the series.

Everything is possible with MCF series.That's why I like it. Each episode brings something new and I'm never disappointed.

Did you try Madame Fate ?

If not, do it , its a very good game

I recently completed this game. Did everyone who enjoyed playing this game NOT use a walkthrough guide? I had to rely on one extensively. Other games I have played in this genre, I completed on my own and with no help from the BF forums. Just makes me wonder what makes a good game good.

I got to the end of the game and I spelled Mercury and the thing at the top of the alter came up and I went to put in the vial and it won't take it. Keeps spitting it out so I can't finish the game. Anyone know what's going on?

I think you've found the answer by now. Some items are empty to start with.

Remember, a lot of people who will be reading this thread will have never played the game before. If you are posting spoilers, be sure to include SPOILER ALERT at the top of your post.

Comments:
Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Collector’s Edition is much more than your typical Hidden Object game. Packed full of puzzles and sleuthing, its dark storyline and live action sequences make you feel as though you’re part of an interactive supernatural thriller film. This game doesn’t skimp on the details and it’s one you’ll want to play with the sound on – snow swirls and changes direction as the wind wails through the trees and every building you enter sounds as if it’s ready to fall apart around you. Snow crunches underfoot as you walk, water drips and ghosts whisper at your every move, creating a genuine feel of cold desolation. Unlike others in this genre, Dire Grove also features a ton of unlockable achievements and this Collector’s Edition even features secret content, wallpapers and behind-the-scenes media not found in the core version of the game. This game is overall engaging and offers a healthy challenge, yet is untimed and puzzles can all be skipped (though there is an achievement for completing all of them!) which keep this game from being too difficult. Despite the dark storyline and occasional “Blair Witch” feel, this game manages to not be violent or gory, so this game is appropriate for spook-chasers of all ages.

Game Modes:
Dire Grove has just an adventure mode with Hidden Object scenes and mini-game puzzles integrated into the storyline.

Depth:
Dire Grove has a total of seven chapters and a very experienced Hidden Object gamer or player making a lot of use of the strategy guide might complete it in about five hours, though this game will most likely last much longer for most players.

Similar to:
Players that enjoyed <a href=http://tinyurl.com/66aenz>Ravenhearst </a>and <a href=http://tinyurl.com/5rvj2n>Return to Ravenhearst</a> will also enjoy Dire Grove .

Difficulty level:
Dire Grove can be a bit difficult at times, but the lack of a timer paired with the renewing hint system and case file journal keep this game entertainingly challenging.

I love the game, but I am desperately trying to find where I use the snow shoes. Can anyone help. I see the secret area on the map in the secret room, but I can't figure out how to get there. Also, what do I do with the phone in the secret room?
Help,

1) You don't use the snowshoes anywhere. You just have to have them to get to the farmhouse.
2) You can't get to the secret room until MCF #7 comes out around Thanksgiving. Those are all hints / clues about the next game.
3) Solve the number puzzle at the end of the credits (or read it in the walkthrough thread) and dial it for a message (which you can read in Margie B's thread too).

I just reached the part where you have to give potato chips to the wolf to get past him and the potato chips are gone from inventory. What happened?

Can you scroll your inventory? You may be carrying more items than you can see.
