Wow, this game is super short! I liked that there were a lot of puzzles, though some of them were the same. I wish that the map could have been used to quickly get to areas you've been. If I would have known how short this games was, I wouldn't have purchased it. Oh well.

Although I liked this game in the beginning, the constant loading page every single time you needed to go to another area got really, really irritating and I couldn't even finish the trial, had to get out of dodge.........sorry.

After playing the demo, I still don't know. I found the story interesting enough, but it just didn't grab me - I couldn't see myself playing it again after the first time. The loading between scenes didn't bother me. (Really, Drawn takes far longer to load.) It would be a good buy on the DD.

I played the trial and I liked it. But I do agree the loading in between scenes takes way to long. I was not able to finish the game after accomplishment 7, kept getting booted out with Error Access blah blah blah, I uninstalled and reinstalled hoping it would help. But no luck, has anyone else had this issue.

Just finished the demo:

Pros: Hard to think of any at this moment !!

Cons: Obiviously, like everyone else, the constant loading in between scenes - even when you mistakenly leave a room and want to go right back, it has to load. I have never seen a game that did this before. No, it didn't take forever to load, but it was forever annoying.

Also, when navigating through the house, you have to wait for the "directional arrows" to appear before you can go there. These don't appear unless your cursor is on just the right place. Annoying, again.

The map I found of no use whatsoever. The rooms are not labeled, so you don't really know where you are, and you cannot click on a room and go there.

What the heck is up with the Memories? Great - you get to see what she remembered, but you cannot interact with that scene.

Random clicking to find what you are supposed to find. No direction at all in that area. When you come upon a puzzle you are not able to play yet, it gives no directions on how to play - have to deduce you don't have all the pieces to play. Too many long scenes you have to read through. Voice overs just awful, music even more awful.

No sale here, not even ON sale. Deleting as we speak.
Peace,

Good game, fun to play, but awfully short. I think I finished in a little under 2 hours.

Did NOT like this game. Too short, very poor graphics, story line was silly. I was very disappointed with what could have been a fun game. I felt that it didn't live up to previous Big Fish games' standards. Started out pretty well. But about an 1 1/2 hrs. into it, it got pretty corny. Couldn't tell by just playing the 1 hr. trial. Would not recommend to anyone that like a "good" hidden object adventure game.

I agree!!! you have to wait to long and if you miss click you are in a room you don't want to be in your have to wait again~~~ not for me

all the loading every time you changed to a different part of a room or to a different room ruined the game for me. If they could fix this flaw it would be a good game

I really like this game! The loading between each scene only took a few seconds and didn't bother me at all; it was the same length as Drawn, which also loaded between scenes. I thought this was an interesting and well made game, and I love its adventure style!

I love Playfirst and think they make high quality games. And I appreciate how they release the Mac version along with the PC version. Thanks!

This was a fun game. However, it was WAY too short. Had I known that after the 1 hour trial I was almost finished with the game, I would not have purchased it.

This was a bit disappointing given that it was a pretty short game. I played the demo, used a credit to purchase, played for another 30 minutes and ta-da, game was over. At least I think I was near the end. Unfortunately I got an access error just at the end so I didn't get to see the game out to the finish but by then I'd got the gist of it and was over it. The mini games were way too simple. I like adventure games but this was a bit simplistic, too short and not very taxing. My brain cells need a more complex work out to keep me interested.

I purchased the game because of a Labor Day discount offer, but I must say it has one really annoying feature that should have been addressed in development: the interminable and constant "Loading" every time you go from room to room.

The game is fine in other ways, but I have been playing for hours and I would bet money that if it were not for the constant irritation of having to wait FOREVER to get from one room to the next I would have finished it a long time ago.

This ranks among the most incredibly lame games I have ever played. There are excellent games available, ravenhearst for example, dire groves, this is just pathetic. I want my penny back.

After playing Return to Ravenhurst, this was way too easy. Hidden objects and puzzles were way too simple. WAY too short. I had it almost completed before the 1 hour demo- and I am not the greatest at these games. This would be fine for a beginner; if not, don't bother.

This game has nice atmosphere and it sounds like an interesting story but I had no desire to continue it. Something about it just made me . The loading time was an issue for me, I'm just not that patient. I will say, I'm from a state where helmets are optional, but I still wonder at the couples IQ for not wearing them.
