OOOOO! This one is yummy!

SPOILER ALERT

Firstly, this game is CREEPY! Yes we all have played the HOGs with the creaking behind us but seriously...I wanted to shut it down - there were crazy noises...Also there's at least one part that gives a 1st person appearance where you wanted to scream, 'noooo, don't go in there' Goose bumps!

The Flashlight tool is very helpful for regular game play. This is dark but at least we can get around it a little.

Additional funny little things - The eyeball icon, when you look at something of interest, changes. The humor in this game is entertaining "Climbing over a burning tree is not a hot idea." I appreciated the description and vocabulary in the narrative in the beginning.

The only thing that might be a problem for some fishes is the dark scenes and occasional lagged area.

This is a MUST BUY for me...I may even go crazy and buy the CE right now

Great job!

I agree!


I loved this one! I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and game-play.

The graphics, while dark to fit the storyline, are still crisp and clear- I did not have any difficulty seeing anything.

Zero trouble with graphics, movement etc. Unlimited hints, skippable mini-games, loads of areas to visit, a nice amount of HOG scenes

Great review casualgran! I couldn't agree more! A game of this quality comes along about once a year!! It is excellent! Even the music and the story are great and usually I could care less about either.

Try it and you'll buy it! I could not find one thing to nit-pick about this game. And everybody knows I'm an old grouch!!

Awesome so far! Now this is the quality the true gamer expects, and gets so irate without lol. Great graphics...intriguing, engaging storyline that pulls you in...similar to the Void which I loved. I love the flashlight and camera you get...you can take a pic of any scene, and then the camera flashes when its a picture you truly need for gameplay. Thank you BF this more than makes up for the last two TGT...we won't even mention titles...you know who you are! Happy Gaming all

Fantastic game and for once I really don't mind paying the CE price. This is what a game should be like because I don't mind admitting that I do get extremely bored with the same old thing,

Right I've got a game to sort out,

Happy gaming Fishes.

Realistic scenery and superior graphics. It's an IHOG with not much in the hand holding department. I thought parts of the HOG scenes were a little gauzy looking...but could just be me. Suspenseful music which goes well with theme of game...think maybe another ghost story...but not sure about that yet. Only voice over I have heard is at beginning of game and it was well done. Hint replenishes quickly and the strategy guide is functional in the demo. That's it for my comments...I'm sure others will have plenty to say...lol

I was really getting into this one and was at the hospital when my hour was up. I rarely had to look at the SG and then only to make sure I was going in the right direction. Hopefully I can get this one before the end of the month.

I had very little issues with finding objects, even small ones, on my laptop screen. You don't lose a hint if it directs you to a different area of the game and you can mostly figure out what to do next with just the in game messages.

Well done!

Thanks everyone for the reviews - I'm downloading at the moment and it sounds really good. I'll come back if I have anything to add when i've done the demo but I suspect it's all been said already

This is a very well done game. Lovely graphics and lots of things to interact with as well as IHOG scenes. But ... it is yet another dark, spooky game ... and I'm more than bored with that concept. It has so many cool things to do but I'm just not interested in spooky anymore. I'll give it a try later and see if a couple of coffees help

I have BETA tested many games and never lost my hour when the game came out.

I beta tested this game the other day and absolutely loved it. Now I will have to wait till the month is up, so I can buy it, otherwise I'll have too many on my punch card!

I really got hooked right away! I also like a guy for the main character. The game moves right along and the SG is readily available if needed. This looks like a buy for me.
