Hint refills fast;;skip button a little longer. Storyline is about the same.....or so you think! This game kept my attention to the very end and what a surprise ending. No, I won't spoil it for you, but this game is worth the money.

Hi all.

I have now finished this great game. My guess is it took me @5 hours in total after finding the map after about 2 hours (thanks Gail ) Baring in mind I am an experienced gamer, playing on herd mode in a very relaxed fashion over @ 3 sessions.

OMG, The ending (Spoiler) I guessed it long before, because you were all saying OMG the ending. I NEVER guess these things correctly so <Memo to self to pat on back>

This is another great game, good storyline, great graphics. HOS has no "hidden or inventory used objects" within, but no penalty for wrong clicks and objects are easy to find, Hints are decently recharged (I played Casual). Mini puzzles are not too difficult and inventory usage is easy too. Lots of places to explore too!

Love it!

This was a very good game that had a nice flow to it. It also had a surprise ending, that I didn't expect.

The Map was very helpful in allowing you to jump from scene-to-scene and letting you know where actions were required. The Hint button was somewhat helpful for directions, but now always for point to what should be done.

The only bad part about this game, is that is took (in total) around 10 downloads to play with the sound on. I do hope Big Fish gets this problem solved. (Vista Operating System)

I recommend this game (once you get past the "sound" problem).

I have not yet finished the game - am at the casino - but I HAVE to write here about this game: I love it!
Finally a game which plays "today", no 19 th century/ no 1950ties, no junk piles but so adequate Hidden object scenes, the graphics beautiful, the atmosphere so "right" - I wish there were more games like this.
I am playing it in hard mode and enjoy every second of it.
Off I am - to see what happens next!

Not bad and it's an SE too boot.. Liked the story and graphics aren't bad. Hints reload fast and it has a map to tell you when you need to do something and you can click and go right there.Give this a 3 out of 5 stars.. Had fun playing the game.

This was a wonderful game, I loved every minute of it. It did try to add something to my comuter, but I told it not to. The music was great, the difficulty level was great, I loved the fact that I had so many directional choices to make and so many puzzles to solve. The hint button works really well since there is no SG. Works well for me. I had no technical issues and I really enjoyed myself.

Boring, didnt even finish the demo. I am not one for love stories. I like suspense.

Okay....I totally enjoyed this game until the end...I have no clue what happened. It ended so abruptly and was very confusing...how very sad to ruin such a great game that way. Game had a lot of HOS but they were easy so the game flowed smoothly. Puzzles were easy and entertaining, graphics beautiful...can't say anything bad about the game at all. Interesting story and a lot to do. Best of all it had a fast HINT recharge and a jump map which makes any game fun to play.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE END?????? WHY did it end this way and what really happened? Did she find her boyfried? Was he the "bad guy" who was the girl in the cape at the end? What a mess. So I give the game itself a 5 , but I give the ending a 0 . So if you don't mind dealing with the useless ending and just want to enjoy a fun game...go for it!

Great game for ****. The graphics and colors were great! I love the map in journal, it makes traveling 10 times easier. The story was good...I have no complaints...enjoy it!

This was a fun game to play. I found it rather relaxing. The graphics were nice and clear. It was a good game to use a PCC on.

Ditto. Great SE game.

ETA: But the ending is confusing.

Not a bad little game, some things don't make sense though.

In one of the hidden object rounds for example, it asked for a football, but when I couldn't find one, I clicked the hint button and it indicated a tennis ball.

Aside from that, it seems like a fun game so far.

way too much running around, i could not lock the items found bar, and a interactive map would have been nice. i really felt like i had"been there done that" with this game

There IS a map that lets you jump and it is more than welcome because there is a lot of ground to be covered. You may want to look at the walkthrough.

I thought this was a very poor game. The graphics were quite poor, the story repetitive and dull, and the puzzles somewhat familiar and tedious. I would regret having spent money on this game, except that I used a free game credit to buy it. Now I regret losing a free game credit. I've played games I like from this game producer before, so I was especially disappointed in this one.

There are so many good, well designed, challenging games out there; don't waste your time on this one.
