I assume I finished the game today.
**POSSIBLE SPOILER**

There was the end cut scene and then my screen went blank and took me to the menu screen. I wasn't sure what had happened so I clicked PLAY and was told thank you for playing our game. Say What????

If this was the ending, then it is a sad state of affairs when you have no idea your game is over.

The graphics were good. The cut scenes were good. I do not run flash player and this game played flawlessly on my game machine.

The puzzles were somewhat simplistic but enjoyable. It was nice to finish each section within that section and not have to go back and forth within many screens.

But again, I must question the ending of the game. Did I miss something? If you are going to continue on within another game, it would be nice to have a heads up to that effect. This abrupt ending was a true disappointment.

Hear hear Breezie. This just happened to me, and I was very disappointed! Great game up until then.

Same here, I really enjoyed this game, it was quite different w/a lot of seek and find and interesting twists on the HOS................and then the ending..........not nice from a developer I used to like. Grim Facade:Venice was much better

After completing the demo, which I didn't run into any technical issues with, I read other reviews regarding the ending and the technical issues others were encountering and decided I didn't want to take a chance purchasing this game.

Didn't find it all that "gripping" in the demo...not enough to take a chance on a bad ending (I hate those no ending endings) and all the other technical issues players are encounting. Hope the developers are reading these and rework this game.

I agree with the other fishies , this game has a rubbish ending, is it because we didnt buy the collectors edition? and this is a great game from great devs, what a disappointment.

Great game! Graphics are above average, music appropriate, puzzles interesting; BUT................as with you other fishies, I just sat here saying "WHAT!!!" when it got to the end. I know there will be another game coming that will pick up where this one left off, but the game could have said something when it kicked me back to menu screen like "to be continued" or something. Wow, talk about abrupt no-ending. I did have one time of game freezing but when I went out and back in, it played just fine.

I was wanting to buy the SE today, especially since it it a bonus punch weekend. However, after reading about the ending in the SE, and how the bonus chapter in the CE was needed to have a proper ending.

ERS, this is quite disappointing from such an accomplished developer. If this is going to be a trend with your games, you have lost this gamer as a fan.

Now, off to buy a game from another developer.

I hate it when a game leaves me hanging. Everything I was going to say that can be printed has been said by the others.

ER yes .....what happened ??? game over. I have played many ERS games and loved them , as usual the gameplay was good , puzzles good , graphics good, and story line good until it fell apart by that abrupt ending , I guess I wait for sequel !!!!!, Which I would purchase as I really enjoyed playing this game until I was cut off !!!!

I always ENJOY a HOG + Puzzle game. Its easy and slightly challenging at the same time. Good graphics, sinister story line, great game.

4.5/5

* If u have a free stamp go BUY it!

As all the others here I loved the game until the final cut-scene - the maid did what?? and why?? and then blank! At least a little explanation is in order here - a voice-over - something....

I thought the game had frozen me out - but then I came here and found that it was just a really LOUSY ending to a pretty good game.

What??? The maid did it instead of the butler? Why??
Had I known how bad the ending was, with no explanation and no reason (as well as no hint), I would have saved my money. This is a really bad game. I also didn't like the idea that the fans were only in the hidden objects. This game seems to be hurried through development.

I must say I did exactly the same thing Breezie did, clicked play to see if I had been thrown out due to a technical glitch. If you're going to have a sudden ending, at least give us time to read or see the things leading up to that ending. I had no idea what had happened, just that the maid was the villian all along. Very dissapointed in the ending.

The same thing happened to me. But I played a CE version, and the story continued in the bonus play as if nothing had happened!! I didn't "suffer" but i really think it's an impudent way to end the SE game.
Unless of course it is a mistake from the developers ERS. Perhaps it is. I normally respect ERS very much.
