8 out 10...Good Game
by K.Baillie, Canada - Nov 21st 2008

A good HO game with nearly 100 levels. The grahics are great and there are many different kinds of puzzles. There are some mini games. You get time off for frequent wrong clicking and bonus for speed clicking. At first you must find hidden objects the usual way from a list. As the game progresses you find the objects from word clues. i.e. (read + mornin + daily = newspaper) There are approx. 12 mini games which are average games. I have seen better one. The game is very long and enjoyable because of it's story driven plot and good graphics.

Solid HO Game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Nov 19th 2008

Mystery Chronicles is a good ho game..but it brings nothing new to the table. The story falls a little flat and it uses far too many cliches. However, the mini games are good (not great ) but def. good. Good music!

It might have been excellent...
by Kathleen McCormick, USA - Nov 16th 2008

...but it just missed.

The graphics are superb, the storyline is actually more engaging than any similar games I've played, the music is nice and not particularly intrusive; BUT the puzzles are sometimes too simple, it's too short and has no replay value.

I liked that it has no timer because it makes (or would make) it perfect for those of us who just like to relax and enjoy the ride rather than being harassed by a ticking clock. After all, some of us play these games to unwind after being, you know, harassed by a ticking clock five days a week.

I had game credits or I would probably be somewhat annoyed at having to pay $20.00 for it. As it stands it's not a total waste, but it really needs more work. Two more murders and random item search for replay would make it one of the best I've played.

Clue Classic Icon
BRILLIANT!!!
by Jeanne Dower, USA - Nov 16th 2008

I agree with everything Peter said. I loved this game as a kid and this is almost better because you can play anytime and try to outdo yourself.

I like the fact that you can control the "intelligence" of the other players and choose how many people to play against.

And unlike the H/O games that playing twice is usually the limit before getting bored, this NEVER gets boring!

The gameplay, graphics and sound were ideal for the fabulous game of Clue.

They captured it perfectly!

FATE Icon
I need coolant....
by Hisashi Uga, Japan - Nov 13th 2008

I love this game. This kind of game is quite different from games available in Japan. But it overheats too much, and causes my macbook pro shut down like in 20 mins

I changed configuration as low as possible, but still causes shutdown. orz....

I'm using medical ice pillows to keep it cold.
Otherwise, the game itself is just great for $20.
I can study interesting English words, too.

This game is not too deep. Diablo is too much for me, but FATE is moderate. The scenario is maybe bit too same, and gets boring some time and the design of armor is pretty much same shape in different colors.

Not many variation is available. And yet, character development is endless fun, gathering rare items are so much fun, and definitely I would buy a next series.

Ho Hum
by Linda Rosenfield, USA - Nov 12th 2008

Yeah, besides being unchallenging because of the the bug that deals the same first hand every time, it also scores many games completely inaccurately, even according to their official rules. My advice....wait til they have a patch for this one!

I do like the enjoyment to earning points and being able to "virtual buy." That's something I enjoyed in the puzzle and board game and it's more fun in this one.

Righteous Kill Icon
Easy hidden items game
by Laura Fowler, USA - Nov 12th 2008

The items are for the most part very easy to find. I do like how the hints work. There's not a number of hints, but there is a delay before you can use another hint.
