It's a good game I liked it, the art is good but the light criteria is uneven, some scenes that are meant to be darker are too bright or clear (warehouse) and some others are too dark.

The storyline was good, 3 game modes was interesting also. Overall is a good game, I finished it and didn't think it was short, I think it's definitely worth trying at least.

I loved it! It was very mysterious, yet very fun too. You had to think, but not too, too much. I thought it was GREAT!

This was the worst game ever!!! Any game you pay 6.99 for and you can finish it in a couple of hours is a waste of time and money. I am very disappointed in Big Fish they should have known better.

Hi istephoney--
I got stuck there too . Under the bed there are letters.......use them as markers to figure out the code with the grid on top of the bed. The top two would be a set of coordinates then the next two etc. Hope this helps!

Good Game. 3 hours play time, max. Great graphics, good story, not too hard for HOG, puzzles get progressively harder. Replay has a few new hidden object items. 3.5 stars out of 5. Worth 7 clams.

Designers could have made it harder - more areas to search/throw players off track. Note for next game.

Please explain- I only had one game mode, to my knowledge. After I finished, I went back to replay to see if addl modes were available, but no.

I was really pleased with this game, but I haven't finished yet. I guess I need to brace myself for an abrupt and crappy ending. This is the best HOG I have found since Return to Ravenhearst. The puzzles were varied and fairly challenging, although not as perplexing as Return. (Oh, how I loved that game! I actually had to use cheats to get through it.) Some of the objects were a bit difficult to find and I've used hints a few times. But isn't that the point of hidden objects?

Good game, but I am still looking forward to the next Mystery Case Files.

Oh my goodness, what a super suspenseful (sp?) game. Granted, it is slow in the beginning, but the ending more than makes up for it. I kept having to remind myself near the end, that it was a game and my pokey playing was not going to harm the final outcome. More like it please.

interesting but the puzzles were way to easy and I finished it in less than 2 hours. Not enough bang for the buck.

I also enjoy this game very much, which is why I bought the full version using one of my game credits. However, I finished it in less than two hours. It felt like a waste of a credit.

It was a very fun game to play. Puzzles made sense. My only complaint is that it is a very short game. Should you buy it? Yes, for the fun of it. No, for how short it is.

It had all the things we've been asking for of late untimed, skippable mini-games, hints that refill quickly. Really fun game, thought it was a bit short, will probably play through again

While I did like the game, I too wish it had a longer life. One short fall that I found was when the agent was talking, or giving some sort of clue...her thoughts did not always stay at the top of screen long enough and there was no way to go back. I'm unsure, until I re-play it, to say it was a good buy or not. I'll get back to you on that.

The game isn't as long as I would like it but very enjoyable. I'm glad I bought it. I've played it twice now and enjoyed it each time since there are different items to find each time. Didn't use hints since the story line basically said what to do, just had to read & follow it. I found the dream scene kind of long but it didn't distract from the game. I prefer to have the list of items written out instead of pictures but still they weren't that hard to find. I love HOG and mysteries & to have them both combined makes a good game great!!!!! coodos BFG.
