Interesting storyline and characters. Technical issues including game shutting down (but saving progress), repeating of sound when characters are speaking. Otherwise ok average puzzles and HO. See more See less
I feel I wasted too much money on this. The game crashed 23 times (yes, I counted). I haven't had a problem with a game like I did this one. It didn't start acting up until after I paid. It really ruined the entire game for me. See more See less
I didn't have any problems with game as Kathola did. It is however, a game too easy for my taste. The sound is excellent and the graphics are pretty good. The game is interesting and keeps your attention. Its just a little simple for me. I would have rated it a 5 had it been a little more difficult. See more See less
I played a part free option and really enjoyed it. The game looked great and after it was downloaded, it appeared to work fine. But only after a few rooms explored the cursor started dragging and even slid off the edge of the screen. I contacted online server and followed the instructions. I uninstalled the program but couldn't download it again. I've asked for my money back. See more See less
