This is an incredible game. Absolutely everything one could be looking for in a game. Amazing graphics,great story,difficult but interesting puzzles. This is a must have game. I've waited for the SE version and now I get to enjoy all the great things everyone has been saying in the CE fourms. I'm so happy it's my turn to enjoy such a great game.

I'd rate this: FINE SWINE


My "Terms" for Hogs,IHogs,Frogs & Other types of games.

FINE SWINE:
Great game. Bells and whistles, best, greatest, I love it.

PIGLET:
Good game. I like it! Hog,Frog,Ihog. For true lover's of these types of games

PORK BELLY:
Likable game for some, but not for everyone.

TROTTER:
Pig's foot, don't run away with buying it. lol

PIG DOWN:
Rolling in the mudd, don't go near it or you'll get soiled.

Well well, two such mixed reviews. Can't wait to try it for myself. Am downloading now. A Fine Swine and a No buy. Hum. Sometimes bizarre is good, we'll see.

I downloaded this and then realized that I had bought the CE. And I have to agree with Miss Lisa. It is Fine Swine.

Based on the demo, this gets a solid "A" from me, and goes on my Buy List. The only knock I have on it is that it doesn't fill my wide screen monitor. But, the graphics are clear and lovely, with the sound effects terrific - understated, yet eerie, really moving one into the atmosphere of mystery and dread. Gameplay has variety, from hidden object scenes to some need for use of inventory and interaction. It seems a bit more difficult than the average, but that's okay. From reviews of the CE, it appears to be a longer game - 4+ hours - which is also a good thing for me. Very nice work.

Wow! Long d/l!
Still waiting after hanging out the washing & collecting chook eggs! On BB too!
I can see it's over 600mb so not too worried

I remember playing the demo on the CE and enjoying the game so dived right in and used a credit - soooo reckless

My kind of game - like the graphics and the dark storyline so that's my Saturday sorted!

What a great way to use one of my credits, I played the demo for the CE and knew this is going to be one I had to have. The graphics are spectacular, I liked the creepy theme in this one. Objects you can actually see, what a deal!! Good job, BF!!

Will be a buy for me too!! I have 5 or 6 credits to use so this will definitely be one of them. Not sure yet if I'll use one for the Margrave game - is that game worth using a credit for?
Have a great day!

I used a credit for this game and the Margrave game I like this one a little better but the Margrave is a good game also. neigher game can be considered boring to me.

Well, I'm in the middle of Margrave and absolutely love it so far. I used a "freebie" on it, so I'm happy and would recommend it to those who like creepy!

Is this SE version the 'exact' same as the CE - I bought the CE in March! Should I have waited. My very positive input for this game in any version!! Though, I'm still curious if the SE is as long as the CE? Please someone answer. Just thinking I should wait around for a SE for up and coming CE games.????

Kalalika, I bought the Margrave one and I really enjoyed the game, especially the graphics. I have been waiting for the SE of this one to come out because I have several credits to use. I didn't demo the CE (no willpower not to buy it LOL) so I'm very happy to see this one. But first I have to finish Gravely Silent: House of Deadlock. Busy, busy... so many good games this week

This SE is a buy today . I demo'd the CE and loved it but decided to save my pennies. Good thing too, because such great games the past 8 days!
I also got the Margrave SE and the Treasures of Mystery Island: Ghost Ship . And because they are all SE, I could use credits and a punch freebie.
What a grand start to April!

I've been waiting for this one. I read somewhere that the bonus material on the CE isn't worth it so I'm happy to see the SE out today!

If I had paid 13.99 for this game as a CE.... I'd have been very disappointed.

It's an "ok" game but definitely not worth the CE price. I may not even buy it for 6.99... may wait for DD. It's just "ok". Par for the course.

I liked the game and the presentation. It is a bit easy but I like to relax and play an easy game now and then so I do not have to strain my brain . I did buy this game and hopefully it will be fun all the way through.

I guess i found this game a little easy... I played the demo through with 21 minutes left over of my hour.. i tried starting over as a new profile but the clues were exactly the same!!! does this happen in the full version too/ I didn't have to use the strategy guide or the hint button at all and only skipped one puzzle. I guess my big question is.. is it worth it? If i can open the realm to the sidhe in just over half an hour how much is left over??/

So where's cherb & casualg & sin & goofyduck & peggle (not to mention poodlebear sob sob)????? I always so look forward to their reviews! I have tried for a few minutes but was easily distracted so not sure on this one. Will wait til tomorrow (with no TV on LOL!) and give it another shot but so far **** hum....
Again, just my opinion, Try it before you buy it! :-)

Lean

edited for spelling LOL!

OK I saved about 40 minutes and was totally engrossed today! Will be buying even though it is a HOG at least there are alot of puzzles and things to do that will make you use your noodle. Glad I gave it a second chance 4 out of 5 's for me! JMO

Leanda1 I believe they all posted their reviews in the CE version of the game.
