Veronica Rivers

This game has potential. My main criticism would be that this game is far too slow.
Extremely irritating when you want to progress

I agree it is a very slow game. I don't like that you can't skip over the story. I'm sure some people like that but I'm more into playing the game.

I'm the same way- I hate not being able to skip the cut scenes

To me the story gives you the whole background of the game. What actually is happening. Why Veronica has to go through these portals. Her main goal in the game is to see what's happened to the Geologists and to get things back to order. I thought the story was very well done and interesting. Some have the questions so what's the purpose of doing this that or the other, and that's where the story comes in. If you read the story it will tell you why you have to do this that or the other to give you a better sense of the game. To give you an understanding of why you have to do certain things. I love the stories of the games. To me it makes me feel more like you're on the actual voyage with her and living her story. Instead of just reading a good novel your actually playing a good novel. That's my opinion.

I like the stories.also, but give me a break, sometimes she was just sitting there!!! I thought the story parts could have played faster w sound. I was not impressed w mini puzzles, too easy. I thought this game was WAY TOO BORING.

I"m enjoying this game. I do read all the info in the transition screens. However, I would have preferred to be able to click to go to the next screen.
As noted by sassylassie, I do get all the comments about objects etc at the bottom of the screen and some have been informative while other are funny.
...I've also enjoyed the portal and PDA puzzles...Just enough to make you pause but not so hard you tear your hair out.
...Happy Gaming Everyo ne

Love HO games; but find some have objects very small or color math too close to background if your sight is a problem. I found it very hard to find things. probably a good game if I could see items; liked game except for that. Hope you all enjoy it!!

cesse47 you hit the nail on the head! . And you can know a little more about what Veronica likes and dislikes. She is such a sweet girl and has a heart of gold. You had to find a teddy bear on the list and she commented, "I miss mine. He's far away at home". She didn't have much food but she gave what she could to the other Geologists and to the animals. Even went as far as to put the little frog back into the water. I just love the heart of this game.

I love HO games too. Most of them look the same. This one is different

well, I recently started playing the game and I am amazed. The graphics is awesome. I do enjoy these types of games, but it is very rare, that you find such beautiful, well-thought of, detailed graphics. Quality work. And the idea of the game is quite intriguing. I think I will definitely spend good time playing it.

Some of my friends already tried and enjoyed it. Suppose, I will do the same - seems like a good game to have some real good time

Askold, I am not sure I need it. I love cut scenes in this game.

Played the demo and bought the full version. I'm sure my husband will be excited to play it with me when back home in the evening
