Nice, above average HOG!
I had no tech issues, even though my PC is old and not really powerful enough for some games.

I so agree - same positives and negatives and this is also a buy for me

Running around gathering up my stuff to get my chores done so I can play/paint.

Graphics are wonderful.

Music is fine.

Sound effects are VERY annoying! First time I have ever gone in and adjusted sound to lower than music. Dramatic sounds when putting a key in a door? Not really needed.

The older sister seems more creepy than the 'Woman in White' LOL

This is a buy for me.

crappy. hint does not work, stuff can be hard to find, voice overs ok, graphics (when the voice overs happen) ok. freaking spiraling cursor when "over clicking" drives me nuts. 5 minutes, uninstall.

At the risk of ticking some of you off...you have to stop complaining about issues that have nothing to do with the actual game,,,the game runs fine, the cursor works fine, the hint system is fine...if you don't know what objects are, such as mane...the picture of the lion with it's mane is accurate...a cutlass is a sword....don't get angry with the game...

This game is well done and easier than some others that have come out...just give yourselves time to look around and find things and it will all make sense...it's really a well done game...

This game is a simplified retelling of Wilkie Collins' classic novel. He's credited with being the first writer of modern-style mystery novels. I played with the music and voices turned off, as I usually do: it reduces the annoyance factor. It would be nice if one could jump through the talking scenes by clicking, as one can in some other games.I only needed hints a couple of times, the items are fairly easy to find. The puzzles had some variety, which is nice. Some objects need to be clicked a couple of times in slightly different spots, which is a bit of a pain, but on the whole it's a pretty good game.

Very disappointing. After reading the reviews, and playing the demo, I bought the game. Thanks goodness I had a credit. Much too easy. I'm still a novice at adventure games, but even in the Expert mode, I had no problem in getting through the game in a couple of hours. The hidden object scenes were easy, the puzzles were easy, and there really wasn't much of a challenge in figuring out what to do next. The music was great, as were the graphics. That's about the only two good things I can say about the game. I'm surprised at all the positive reviews from experienced gamers! In my opinion, don't waste your money.

Sorry, I know it's listed as a Hidden Object game, but I don't think that's appropriate.

Very straightforward HOG but of good quality, just a shame it was a bit on the short side. The game play is not difficult in fact rather simplistic which probably did nothing for the game time overall. The story was good but then it was just created from a storyboard and was base on an actual novel... good stories always makes a difference.
Did have a problem loading the game and did not get to play until I had installed it for the third time. The shortness is the only detractor for me.. but certainly worth playing.

can't get game to work

[Post New]by gamedancer on Sep 18, 10 3:11 PM
I have installed and uninstalled twice and can't play the game. Starts and after the big fish page it goes black and goes back to the game manager page. Any one can help will be happy. I know I will like this game and want to buy it. But got to work first.

Really enjoyed the demo, was what I was hoping the Moonstone would be (my eyesight isn't good enough for that one). I found it annoying not to know what I was supposed to do next, but I figured it out anyway. No glitches up to the point of talking to the sister upstairs, which is all the further I got. Maybe not a "great" game, but certainly seems a good one. I'll buy it when I get a credit or it's a DD. Now I'm off to read the novels, I've never read this one.

I liked the game, and had no problems with it at all. But the Secrets unlocked and you can't play them? Was this a CE originally? Just wondered,

Nice graphics. The hidden objects are fun and challenging. The storyline is interesting and complex. This game is engaging. Gameplay flows with the story.

It's an A+.

This is perhaps a game that you might want to play when you're feeling a bit melancholy and just need a moody surrounding. The music will get you there, but the cursor won't (game cursor only, no system choice). The graphics are wonderful, as is the story line, and the scripting is really good. The hidden-object choices are for the most part time-realistic, but don't click too often randomly or you might get dizzy. The bits of voice-overs in the beginning are well done, as is the opening menu and screen intro. This is quite a good choice for adventure/hidden object gamers (like myself) who don't mind spending an evening with a good tale. Four stars.

I just had to put this comment in. I started the game, and thought, this looks nice - not the very best artwork, but it looks atmospheric, like it would have a nice story, etc.

After five minutes of play I deleted it. Why? The most obnoxious whirling pointer I've seen in all my HOG gameplay. After 4 or 5 clicks the thing starts going wildly around the screen - intensely irritating and hard on the eyes.

I thought, why even get started. If I'm this aggravated with the pointer five minutes into the game, in an hour or two I'll be berserk. Out it goes.

Worst game ever!!!! I had to reinstall twice and I still had issues. Don't buy it. It is a waste of time and money!!!! Big Fish blew it this time!

Unfortuantely, I bought the game before the bugs started showing up, i.e. hint not working and game refusing to save your progress. At a fishies suggestion in the forums, I deleted the game, reinstalled it, created another profile and started over. That fixed the problem with the game running but the real disappointment was how short the game was. It seemed to me that the run time wasn't much more than half your average HOG. Story was okay, graphics okay but because the game was so short, I just felt cheated. Phhtttttttt on this game!
