It does not get any worse than this...!

[Post New]by Dianeteacher on Dec 30, 12 6:21 AM
I consider myself a fairly easy going person. My view on life is my cup is half full - always postiive. I have been a member of bigfish since 2008, give or take.

I have downloaded countless games - some made me truly think, some made me laugh and some (Jewel Quest) frustrated the daylights out of me. However, none and I repeat none, had the poor quality of acting as Shadow Lake. I have seen Lea Thompson on TV many times and have always found her to be a reputable, if light, actress.

What was she thinkng and, for heaven's sake, what was the director thinking, that resulted in a less-than-high school first year drama class.

Her portrayal of Cassandra Williams - psychic detective was do poor that I felt sorry for her. I guess that she needed the money. The next time you cast, email me and I will do it for free. I have to be better than poor Lea.

So, as my subject line states...It (game) does not any worse than this...

Diane

I agree, she was bad, but I don't think she was the worst, and it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the game. At...least...she...didn't...take...for...ever...to...speak...like...some...voice...overs.

No, it just seemed that way...long and agonizing!

Happy 2013.

I felt sorry for Lea Thompson. I can only believe that the person who directed her is responsible for the over-the-top/campy acting. I cringed every time I had to sit through one of those scenes. They were just so bad. So not worthy of Lea Thompson.

Well her star has kinda diminsihed since "Back to the future III" I bet the rolls are few and far between. Yes it is bad, most voice overs usually are, but I am so impressed that they put the money to have a known actress in a game roll. I thought that was pretty cool! Add to that, the game is AMAZING!!! IMHO
