HIDDEN MYSTERIEW: SECRETS OF THE WHITEHOUSE

End or near end of game is confusing and cannot be navigated. Instructions incomplete on this aspect. Disappointing

DEFENDERS OF LAW

Fun game. Challenging. Love courtroom scene. More variety in script would be more fun and challenging. Like it!

Not very good value for money.

Shutter Island
 – 

Very disappointing

Though I wouldn't categorise the game, in general, as 'bad', in terms of what it offers in the way of game difficulty, it comes very close. Basically, once you've found the hidden objects (which isn't too difficult) it does everything for you bar 5 or 6 mini-games, and even these are incredibly easy. I can't remember how long it took but between 2 to 4 hours or thereabouts. For the price, I was very disappointed with this plus the content and ending.

I understand it's a 'taster' for the movie so it couldn't give the whole plot away but nevertheless I think the customer deserved more than was given. With such a cliffhanger and the feeling at the end of 'what's actually going on here?', even the customary 'To Be Continued' would have been something. It's clear that this was intended to incite enough interest to get the player to go see the movie rather than succeed as a game. It's had the reverse effect on me.

I don't normally write reviews and if this game had cost $9:95 I wouldn't have bothered, but at almost $20 I felt compelled to as, bottom line, the game just isn't worth that much money!

Too short

Not worth your money. After playing the free demo you have about half an hour of playing left.

Avernum 6
 – 

Another great game from Spiderweb

This is the last installment of the long running Avernum saga - Jeff Vogel has created a huge world with hundreds of quests, battles, and intrigue. I've been playing these games for years and love them. Definately worth the price, you get many hours of satisfying play.

Campfire Legends - The Hookman
 – 

Lots of fun, but too short

I found this one more challenging than most - the puzzles were fun and I liked how you had to go to multiple scenes to figure out the hidden object goals. My complaint is that it was way too short (finished in less than 3 hours); that's why I'm not giving it 5 stars.
I'd buy a sequel if it lasted longer!

Insectoid

I don't normally like shooter type games, but this one is a lot of fun. There are only a few keys to remember for actions, so it's not complicated. The graphics are stunning.

Hoyle Casino 2010
 – 

Very Buggy

I owned previous versions, so I was originally excited to see what was new. Well .. the graphics are better, but that's about it. The playing experience is just plain awful.

There are vital game-playing aspects that no longer work in this newer version. For example, in Craps - you can no longer place an "odds" bet - which, frankly, is the most important bet on the table. Several other examples like this.

On top of it, Encore tech support is non-existent. Very disappointed in this purchase.

Superb memory enhancement game for 60 & over

I love this game. The challenges that come after getting all the hidden objects can be very daunting, but once you have succeeded it feels very rewarding. I having nothing much praise for this game. I started to play this game to help me with my memory and it has helped more than I can say. Thank you

Fun and Exciting

Very nice game. It has a suspense feel to it, and nice surprising scenes and puzzles. Like all of these games, when you finished it, it is done. But I had fun playing it.
