Ran out of playing the CE's this week. So, I started to play those I tacked as a possibility and this was one of them. Sorry. folks. To me a horrible game. Bad graphics and hard to see items. Hard to follow and way to many HOG scenes. A nonpurchase for me as well. When you have the quality and caliber of games such as the CEs lately, it is very hard to play these inferior games. Big Fish, my recommendation is to hire more gamers and create more games like the CE's we are getting. These other games, by far, are very bad.

I agree with what everyone else has said. I had high hopes for this game and was bitterly disappointed. A waste of time and a waste of hard drive space. Sorry BF.

It wasn't even just bad graphics or really poor dialogue (poorly translated) that made this game terrible. The tasks themselves made zero sense. Ok, initially you find footprints, streaks of blood, pictures... ok, that makes sense, you're an investigator. But then it's like "find these hidden objects", replace these, find the differences, put them on the evidence table, drop this off at such & such, program this address into your GPS. Ok, I am doing literally EVERYTHING for this character. I'm performing the most mundane tasks and getting none of the excitement of solving anything. It didn't seem to matter what dialogue I chose, they all seemed to lead to the same result (or maybe in the end they don't, unfortunately I couldn't get far enough to find out). The game LOOKED like it was going to be so good, but it lost me right away. I gave it 2 days off then thought "ok, I'll try again" played for another 20 min & I just couldn't do it. No story is good enough to sit through horrendous gameplay like this, besides which, this story seemed mediocre at best. Just such a bad, bad game.

When I saw the title and page I thought this was going to be my type of game! it COULD have been good.. the story/plot and how they had you look for H0s was OK. However I was shocked at how horrible the graphics were!! REALLY BAD!!

I couldn't make out what anything was or barely saw anything at all in the H0 scenes. Blurry, grainy, slow, jerky. HORRIBLE. This is (not exaggerating) the WORST HOG I have ever played! That's saying a lot for me, I love the older games that some see as low quality. Heck I'll even play a "bad" game for a good story but this was UNPLAYABLE.

Sorry, Developers but your graphics artist is atrocious and does not have the talent to design a game. EVER. I'm glad I trialled because I would have wanted a refund..and yes I wouldn't even play this game for free!

NO BUY!!

It doesn't even deserve to be on the site!

Terrible game... No story, stupid objects, returning to same place over and over.
Only played thirty minutes then uninstalled... don't need this cr*p on my pc.

This is one of the worst games ever. You kept repeating your actions, esp in the first two murders. The time taken to do the dialogue was slow, twice it froze on me, the items were so small I couldn't see them even when it gave me a clue and the story was stupid and banal.

Unusual for Big Fish.

I had a problem clicking on some items, had to leave the game and go back in. The items are far too small and too blended to have fun with this game. There are subtitles but no talking sound. It looked like a really good game, just my type but no buy here. A LOT more work needs to be done on this.


ETA. Happy Valentines Day anyway

I have played alot of games in my time but I must state that this is the worst game ever. The graphics were terrible, the plot out of this world, and when finally you think you are going to find out who the murderer is, up comes TO BE CONTINUED. A waste of money fore sure.

Wow just wasted 30 min of my life, all I did was random click in the HOG scenes, story line seemed ok to me, but wow if you could find the items your eyesight is really really good. I saw a few but for the most part no. This is not a buy for me for that reason alone. If the developers really want to sell a game at least make it so we can see the items.

Maybe I would have liked, but I love the colorful graphics...

way too much narrative between game play. Way too dark and the objects are very small, but I stuck it out for the 24 minutes it took me to get to the end of the demo. I probably would not have bought this game but it is definitely a no buy for me when the demo version is only 24 minutes and I can't even play the full trial hour.

[b]I like the idea of this game, but the objects were just too hard to find. Everything blended in too well. Perhaps redoing it with someone else drawing it. Won't buy for sure.

Purchased the full game after playing the demo, was a little dissapointed about how quick it finished, I only got another 30 mins play time, If I had realised the game was so short I probably wouldn't have purchased.

Utterly horrible from the get-go..to thecleavage- bimbo, no boundaries protagonist
to the horrid way her boss treated her to the stupid little clues...I rarely post my negative feedback - but this is totally distasteful all the way around.

This is just my type of game so I had high hopes but... no go. Why such grainy bad graphics?? And why in the world did I have to click SEVEN times on the "handkerchief" to find the one teeny pixel that accepted the click? Shoddy workmanship. And it was beyond annoying to have to mark all the "evidence" with little notes only to have to come back to it and click on all that crap AGAIN after the cut scene... wth?? Why repeat? Just padding game time I guess?

But if this game were cleaned up and programmed properly and updated with some nice voice acting I would pay more than the BFG price to play... as I said it's just my type of game with the crime scene, collecting blood samples and the like. I loved the character graphics as well... really nice and unique... but the graphics of the things we had to interact with was so grainy and tiny. It's a shame... could have been a great CSI type game.

Willing to pay more than the BFG price? Get thee to a bargain bin and buy Still Life. It's everything this game tried to be and more.
