All of the above!
Yay - a game that plays beautifully!
The HOG scenes are reminiscent of Sweeney Todd.
Bought it 30 mins into the game.
Yes, moving around required but not in a tear-your-hair-out fashion.
Kudos to the developers. Thank you BF.

After 44 minutes of the demo I'm hooked! I wasn't going to buy any more games for a while, but I have to have this one.

Very nice game, great storyline, great graphics. Got a wee bit tired of the hidden objects scenes after a while, through - but that's just me! Great mini games. Absolutely worth paying for!

Having just read everyone's comments I downloaded this game and have just bought it. What a fantastic game - great graphics, great music, super hidden object rounds and great puzzles. This must compare with the MCF games only better graphics. Thank you fishies for your recommendations on this game and thanks BFG for a great game.

Well, I played the demo and I decided I really am tired of HOGs. I guess I'll never buy a HOG. I think it's a really nice looking game in the design but other than that, I have to say, no thanks.

Why are you doing this to me, BFG? That's the third good HOG in just as many days or so (Secret of the Dragon Wheel, The Great Gatsby, Elixir of Immortality)! How am I supposed to keep some money in my pocket with such great games around?

Of course I bought it. Played it the whole afternoon (almost forgot to do the weekly grocery shopping). Finished it just a couple of minutes ago. Am surely going to play it again.

What more can I say? Great graphics, clear scenes, even though they are a bit on the dark side (mostly). Objects blended in and mostly fitting with the time the game is set in. Junkpile-ly, but justified (come on, it's an old, derelict castle and the working hands die just as quickly as they arrive, who's supposed to clean up?). The mini-games are good, I rather liked the lock-picking. Gameplay is smooth on my machine (but then, due to various repairs, it's as good as new), you can change to custom cursor (which is something all games should allow), even though I didn't do it.
The story is great, too, you'll never know when you stumble over the next corpse, so you're losing your suspects rather quickly.

For me, the game is definitely !

I wasn't going to even try this game cause I thought it was an adventure game but after reading the great reviews I have decided to give it a try. It is downloading now.
Thanks for the reviews!

Absolutely love this game. The graphics are wonderful and the game play is great. I am so happy to see the adventure-hogs coming into their own.

The adventure games, alas, are in my past. Although, I do remember fondly playing Doom obsessively and loving every minute of it. (Shooting the dogs was another matter and I hope the developers of these shoot-em-up games stick to adversaries of the human kind). My reasoning is that the people know what they're in for and the dogs don't.

Waaayyyy off the subject. Sorry. This game is a winner. Try the demo and see.

Review of demo in caual mode: Another fine IHOG, there goes my social security! This is not a dark murky HOG. The screens are clear and crisp, beautiful art work, era appropriate. Not a junkpile HOG, some objects are cleverly hidden right in front of you. Fast fill timer in casual mode, tasklist provided, and for those who do not like to just browse around the scene, there is an option to show all sparkly places of interest. Music is not irritating. There is a storyline about a murder that has held my attention, something that does not happen to often to me. Interactive component is not overly complex. You will be changing areas frequently to finish the puzzles, for some this is a negative. No timer. Minigames that will entertain but not frustrate. Skip,option available. I will buy this game for sure.

This is certainly a very enjoyable game. Some of the same puzzles that we are all familiar with and some different. I loved the spice cupboard in the kitchen. That was truly engenious and the cabinet where you had to place the two heart pieces, that was pretty cool. I love being able to move from scene to scene. That gives ME the control of the game and I also love noticing new places where I have never been before. I didn't make it through without having to refer to the blog walkthrough in order to figure out what to do so there is a nice challenge and it plays long enough for me. I loved it! Who'd a thunk it. TWO great hidden object games two days in a row. Keep up the great work Big Fish.
