Has anyone else had problems with the graphics? Every time I go into one of the HOG scenes, the graphics start rolling and I can't really play it. VERY frustrating....
Any suggestions?

This game turned out to be quite a fun surprise. Everything worked for me from graphics, mechanics, puzzles, storyline. Enjoyed my time playing and will replay in the future when CRS clicks in and I forget where the objects are.

I had read the mediocre reviews and wasn't expecting much....and that's exactly what I got. Not the worst game ever, but just nothing special. It's a shame that so much time and expertise goes into some games that are just variations on a (boring) theme.

TWO OF FIVE STARS.

What a nice long game! A good blend of H0 and puzzle, some walking around but not too bad, not as bad as some. Not too spooky or nasty, and the game keeps to its internal logic which is always good. I liked this one a lot.

Did you uninstall and reinstall? What are you running on? Some older computers don't handle the newer games well.

Great length, nice ratio between HOGS and puzzles and I love the D & E footage. Also objects are easy to find. AND, best of all, it is not a CE so I could use one of my codes!

There must be something wrong with this game.....there is NO floating cursor! Definite buy.

Thought I was going to like it at first but then it just became very tedious. Same ol', same ol'. One of those I just wanted to finish and get rid of. If a long game is what you want, it is that. I thought it would never end. Not the worst game but not something I would ever want to play again,
Looks like it's set up for a sequel. Don't think I be .

 

Power switch for Dark Ritual

[Post New]by woodnhead on May 18, 11 12:11 PM
I got the switch from the room upstairs and installed it in the power room but the switch will not move down to turn the power off. I am not aware of anything I missed prior to installing the switch. What now??

I thought this game was just ok and it finished too quick for me. I didn't think it was that long. It was somewhat boring for me and not something i would want to play again. Game ran very well and there were nil technical issues, i will say that.

Creepy scary and spooky. The trifecta of not for me. The game is great, just tooo much for me. I enjoyed the puzzles. The HOG games were junk piles but it kinda fit the scenes as the place is run down. The hint recharges and is very detailed. I jumped several times during the hour demo and while it's a great game...I like sleep.
Hats off to the devs who scared me silly.

This game is an A.

I totally enjoyed this game. The HOG scenes did not bog you down forever searching for items, but still could be a challenge. Hint refreshed quickly so you could keep moving along if you got stumped. Storyline was good. Thing to remember is to not get cocky about moving your curser around too fast. Go slowly. I found a lot of hints and things to pick up which made the next step easier. Without these, you could get bogged down, so move your curser slowly to make sure you hit all areas of each scene. For those who got too critical too quickly and didn't finish the game...you missed out. Good length too. Definately worth your money.

Boy Howdy, me too! I'd love to see some Sci-Fi storylines in the Big Fish games, plus something a bit different in the storylines besides, "save your sister-father-grandfather-brother-child-spouse-partner" (why does it never seem to be the mother, or have I missed that?, lol.). I mean, I do realize we are humans and all roads lead back to the interconnectedness of family and friends (and teachers/mentors, etc), but......o wait......we haven't saved the family dog yet, or did I miss that one...and the cat, too? Hmm...there WAS an almost extinct beetle (grin). Anyway, some Sci-Fi storylines would be most welcome! Cheers ~


Oops, forgot to mention that I played the demo of Dark Ritual, and it has decent graphics, but it just seemed kinda "so-so" and "been there-done that" and others with much better game-play than this one had. So it won't be a buy for me.

Hello:

I am loving this game. The trial period ran out before I was able to
exit to see if it saved where I was at or started me at the beginning of
a chapter. No worry, I paid for it, went back and was where I was before it kicked me out.

It is easy going, different, and not too creepy.

Gotta get back to the game. Bye!

I really liked the visual effects that they used for the visions (a bit like Phantasmat), and they did a good job of revealing the back story. The graphics were good for both the locations and hidden object scenes, and the background music was non-intrusive and pretty good.

The puzzles and hidden object scenes were of average difficulty, but pretty fun to play. There wasn't much backtracking and I never got stuck in the game. I was a little confused as to why all of the buildings were in such poor condition. It felt a bit like playing Lost in the City. Maybe I missed something in the story? They looked good, even if they didn't make sense.

I really liked the way the story unfolded, even if there were no big surprises or twists, and it was pretty fun overall!
