I can't seem to get the potato chips, or even get to that area. I checked the walkthru and think I have done everything to be able to make that area available. Anyone else having this particular problem?

What is the difference between the Collectors Edition and the regular 6.99 version?
Is it worth the $20.00 US . I downloaded the regular version and played the first chapter. Once i finished it, i still had 23 minutes left, but it kicked my off and said my hour was over. It has never done that before.

The demo was set up to cut off at a certain point. For some, they will finish it before the hour is up; for others they won't be done with that portion before the hour is up.

The CE has the morphing items, achievements, wallpaper, outtakes, concept art, I think 3 extra Hidden Object scenes with clues to the next MCF, and a video tour of that from what I've read is shaky.

I haven't finished the game yet as I've not had an opportunity.

The version you bought has extra content than the regular version. They have posted all over that the regular version would be out in early-mid december for $6.99 for those not wanting the extra content, or the extra price.

Is there a way to open the suitcase if you don't have the last 4 digits of the cell phone number?

Simple answer: Nope. We can't even help you since the number is randomised.

I must say....I'm disappointed in this game. I LOVED RTR and still play it because of the challenging puzzles. This game was too easy and tech problems made it run slow and choppy. I certainly don't think the CE was worth the extra money and my only hope is that BF gave us this game to shut us up as they continue to work on a continuation of Ravenhearst.

I love it and the whole series but when will it be out for Mac? I have a Mac and a PC so I can get both but Mac is my main one. Can't wait for more of the series!!!

Okay, let me first begin by saying that I didn't think BFG could top themselves with the MCF Ravenhearst games, but they did! I've only played this game for 15 minutes but had to stop and post this comment. This GAME IS THE BEST I'VE EVER PLAYED! I jumped 10 feet in the air during the first 15 minutes of game play. Looking forward to purchasing this game. At first I was annoyed with the $19.99 price tag, but knew it had to be spectacular for that amount of money. BFG has not disappointed me yet! Great job! Give yourselves a huge pat on the back! I know I will need the strategy guide for this one.

When I placed the firewood and lighter into the fireplace and closed the window; the backpack didn't sparkle up for a hidden object window. Know if I did something wrong? Having fun with it though. By the way, I am playing the $6.99 Version

I enjoyed playing this game, took me about 4 and a half hours to complete, I found the story with the whole video footage completely scary. However, I do feel that Return to Ravenhearst is miles better as it was longer, seemed to have more scenes, better puzzles, and I enjoyed that one more.

I have read that there is subtitle/closed caption in the game, but I can't turn it on because there is no option for it in the option dialog. There are only options for volume settings, attitude and fullscreen/windowed mode. Do I make something wrong?
Thanks

How will MCF improve on perfection for the next game??? Dire Grove was so far without a doubt the best BFG has offered. The graphics were awesome and it was more like you were taking part in a movie rather than playing a game. My hat off to
all that had a hand in this game. I can barely wait to see what they come up with next. Oh, and always make it with the strategy integrated and without it, that was the cherry on top of the sundae. Best game of the Year, hands down!

DG was moderately entertaining but way too short. Just over 3 hours of play was a big disappointment after RTR especially when quite a bit of that time was chewed up with nonsensical examines and video scenes. The videos were done well but i found myself sighing a little every time i found another videotape on the ground. I wanted to play the game, not watch it.

I agree with the others who said the puzzles were too simple. The hidden object portions were short and easy as well. The game play was rather linear and the storyline predictable.

Overall it was a decent game but I'm glad i didn't pay the $20 for the CE, i was really tempted multiple times!
