Finished ....

[Post New]by Debbie387 on Feb 14, 09 4:51 AM
Have just finished this game in timed mode, on the whole I enjoyed it but it has the usual problem that most of the HO's have at the moment
- objects too small
- clicking on the item to collect it - I found it hit and miss
- penalty on clicking wrongly

Also disliked having to go through the character introduction each time I started up the game - no skip option available

The mini games of blood type and capturing cell samples drove me nuts, but at least you could skip those, especially the cell samples - time was too short

I might play through again in relaxed mode.

What do you fishies think of it ?

Playing in in relaxed mode - it seems quite good. You can skip the beginning titles by hitting the spacebar - works on mine. No penalties for incorrect clicking in relaxed version. Gets a for me.

I played in the timed mode and had no problems, except in the Audio Clue section. The clues didn't really sound like what the object was. I still made it through, but, I hit the hint from the start of that round. I didn't use the hints very often through out the rest of the game.

Not a bad game.

Is this game very long?? How many cases are there? I've played the demo and got to the little boy, but I dont want to purchase the game if I almost finished it.

I played the demo and really enjoyed it... I'm playing on relaxed mode. I will say that I'm glad. While, it is a lot of fun, the game can be a bit frustrating. Sometimes I have to click on something several times or in a slightly different location before the game recognizes that it is the correct item etc. The mini games are amusing although not as in depth as I might have liked. I enjoyed the demo. I'm tempted to use my credit for the game. Like others, I worry about the length of the game. Fun nonetheless.

Sorry to be a misery but I really didn't enjoy the demo. Picking the objects was far too fussy - the poison symbol in the curry restaurant was obvious, but would it accept my clicks? NO. I used the hint, thinking I must be trying the wrong thing and it then picked it up quite happily! Found the medical innacuracies a bit odd - who uses a stethoscope for stomach compressions? What are they anyway? Who bruises that fast? And the poor chap was on and off steroids every few minutes! No wonder he's in a coma!!! Still hunting for a game to match Return to Ravenhearst and the Syberia ones ... off on the hunt again!

Agreed... clicking was farrrr too fussy, and to be clicking on the right thing and yet get a penalty because I was a few pixels off was really annoying.

I got what I figured was most of the way through the first case in the trial period. Decided not to buy it because of fiddly controls and I thought the hidden object was too easy in most cases. On the other hand the audio clues were horrible. I basically just started clicking on things in the room that I knew made a sound, and sure enough, I got most of them that way, and used hints for the rest. So... not really a puzzle game but a clicking game.

Hated the mini games too. Ugh.

I hated it - it was boring and way too short and there are so many mistakes on the game makers part. Waste of money for me.!!!

I've just finished and I loved it! You are right about the size of the objects/mini games/clicking on the right spot probs, but it was a fun game and beautiful to look at. There are 3 cases. 2-3 hours? is that about right?
