The puzzles in the game (demo) were way too easy - I'd rather have a game with tougher puzzles and less walking around to get to where you need to go. This would work better with a map so you could go there right away - saves on sneakers. Oh well.

I really enjoyed playing this game. Story line, I really did not pay much attention to, but I found the mini games unique and entertaining, though not difficult at all. Graphics were very nice as well, and no tech glitches experienced.

Played it loved it! Well worth the full price credit. Just waiting for February as it will work out better to start a new punch card. I already have one full card for January and hey!...February is tomorrow!

Great game! I have liked this game also in the CE, but doesn`t want to pay the double price for that game. But its a buy for me as the standard version of course

There's so many good HOG's/IHOG's/Adventure games that I don't ever get around to buying - I own so many I haven't played yet - and this is likely one of them.

But I did enjoy playing the demo. I like the ghost story thing, and the house environment is very beautifully furnished. Atrium, flowers, wood grain, nice. I don't think this one would be easy to play a bit at a time - when I came back to it, I was just wandering around for awhile trying to remember what I was doing - but I did manage to pick up a thread to go on...

Thie graphics are beautiful and wonderfully crisp. The gameplay has some HOG, as well as interactive HOG, and puzzles galore. This is a wonderful game that is engrossing: I was stunned when the demo ended.The music is lovely and faintly haunting. Truly a joy to play. Huge thank you to the creators! There seems to be little difference between the CE and SE.

This game is an A++.

I just finished this game and I enjoyed it, but found myself getting a bit annoyed with how repetitive some of the puzzles were, especially near the end. I wish there were less move the pieces to make a picture puzzles, those were the ones that got the most monotonous for me. You can skip the puzzles, but not right away. You have to wait for the skip button to load and that takes a couple of minutes, so if you don't like a puzzle and want to skip it, you are stuck in the puzzle until the skip button loads, and that added to my annoyance of some puzzles being too repetitive. But beside that, I did get hooked on the game, especially during the middle chapters. I thought the story was very engrossing, and I also liked the fact that there was a lot of inventory items to collect and use.

The fact that there were not a lot of H0 scenes didn't bother me, but it might bother other people here that really love HOGs. I do not consider this game a HOG. It only has a handful of H0 scenes, I would consider it a puzzle adventure game. The fact that there weren't a lot of H0 scenes made it different from your typical HOG and I liked that. I don't mind doing some H0 scenes in a game, but I do not enjoy straight HOGs. I like some adventure, puzzles and inventory item finding/usage mixed in with my game, and this game has all of those things, which made it very enjoyable for me.

I really liked the story, and I thought the ending was satisfying. I would definitely be interested in playing the sequel whenever it comes out, I just hope the puzzles will be a bit less repetitive in that game. That really is my only complaint though, and I thought that this was a really good game and would recommend it to anyone that likes puzzle adventure games.

Initially I really liked this game, even though I'm not a real fan of romance novel themes. I liked the graphics and the different mix of puzzles. But I found several of the puzzles to be not necessarily hard, but confusing.

HELP! I can't get out of France and back to Fairing Point! I have the ring and the invisible ink letter but don't have any idea what to do next. I'm one of the "lucky" ones to have half the instructions cut off at the top of the screen so if there are directions there, I'm not able to read them. What am I missing? Other than not being able to finish the game, I've enjoyed it. Graphics are good, story is good so far but really do want to finish up! Would appreciate any help!

Hi wynkie! Did you already read what was on the letter, using the candle? After you do, click the letter to put it in your inventory. It should advance to the next chapter after that. If not, go to the Main Menu, and click Start Game to continue the story. You should then find yourself on the cliff.

Played it today, restarted right from the beginning as I like to have a game "in one piece" when I think it's going to grab me the whole time. Loved it. Superb graphics, nice music, not too many dialogues, good little easy mini games (which my ageing brain likes as it makes me feel clever...), catching story, can't wait for the sequel. .

I finished the game last night. It was fun doing a game in chapters. I rarely looked for help. I hope to see another like it. I would purchase it for sure.

I'm glad that I waited to buy the none CE game. While I will miss having the bonus game, the extra things..screen savers, etc...aren't important. I also found that I don't need, at least so far, the strategy guide to play. It's a beautiful game!

Partial quote from CE review by portia60 on Jan 14, 11

"I enjoyed this game quite a lot for the first two-thirds or so, but then found it rather a chore to make myself plow through to the end, as the challenges became repetitive and the storyline faded. The graphics are lovely and bright and clear, something my aging eyes very much appreciate. The storyline is generally well-done but lost energy in the later chapters. Play follows in a logical way. The puzzles, though, are very easy and started to feel like filler after awhile. The dialog also pretty much tells you what to do step-by-step. . Grade: B-. . "

The part I cut is about the CE.


I seem to be one of 2 people in the universe that didn't think this was "The best game ever". Like portia60, I did enjoy much of the game but it then became very repetitive and almost tedious where puzzles and chores were concerned. I didn’t so much feel the puzzles were too easy, as I don’t mind easy, if the storyline continues to hold my interest, which I seemed to start losing about the time I got the housekeeper’s list of chores.

There are many games I have Loved but I feel this one kind of lost it's "magic" for me toward the last third of the game and I started playing more just so I could finish.

I am however glad that so many of my fellow fishies enjoyed it so much.

Really loved this game. Wasn't sure at first after playing Shadow of the Wolf CE with the built in Strategy Guide.

But this game is pretty good and keeping me interested. Love it that the Hints give some idea what to do next... I really love the "hand holding" as mentioned by Casual Gran in other games.

Everything makes sense from one scene to another and not alot of "twoing and frowing". The graphics are excellent and the puzzles are playable with the option of skipping. No regrets about waiting for the SE. In my opinion, its basically not a strong enough game to pay full price for the CE. Fantastic value for a game credit.

Not too many junk pile HOGs and lots of imagination. I kinda like looking for the same objects ...meaning like finding 20 coins or other similar objects..

Excellent 5 star game.
