Danger Next Door Icon
TERRIBLE graphics
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Jan 2nd 2014

The graphics are extremely unappealing — even gross. The dialogue and journal are chock full of grammar errors — I hope no children read them and learn poor grammar!

The Raven Remastered Deluxe Icon
ENDLESS DIALOGUE.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Nov 3rd 2013

This game might be great, but it takes hours and hours of mindess dialogue. Even if I click on an action, the fulfillment of the action has to be preceded by a stupid comment by the character.

Rage: Campaign Edition Icon
Not worth it.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Jan 26th 2013

Lots of minor issues, all of which add up to real frustration. Not good on Macintosh. No narrative cohesion. Random, aburpt, non-linear. A disappointment.

COGS Icon
Well worth it.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Oct 6th 2012

This is a very challenging game to stretch your spatial and abstract thinking. For adults - teenagers would be bored.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Icon
Well worth it
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Oct 6th 2012

This game is much better than most point-and-click adventures. Spooky, scary, but the movement is a bit nausiating if you get motion sickness.

DOOM 3 Icon
OK, but....
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Oct 6th 2012

This game is incredibly similar to Quake. If you have one, don't bother buying the other. Apparently one company bought the other and continued the franchise, but by using the same plot and graphics as the other game. To sell both as different games is rather dishonest.

The Book of Unwritten Tales Icon
Do not purchase.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Oct 6th 2012

The plot is fine, the dialogue is very clever. But the puzzles are incredibly tedious. INCREDIBLY tedious. This games moves slower than a republican offering food to a dying child. The characters mosey along, even when they claim to be on an urgent mission. The pace is absolutely ABSURD. If you click on an item, the character will very, very slowly walk all the way around it in a full circle before picking it up. It is MADDENING!!!

Excellent, and very very challenging.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Oct 6th 2012

This is not one of those typical teenager games. the puzzles are very difficult. The game is well worth the money. Much better than typical ridiculous point-and-click games.

The 7th Guest Icon
Much better than the newer garbage.
by G. D. Hodge, USA - Sep 25th 2012

The puzzles are challenging, the plot is reasonable and logical. Best of all, there is NONE of that asinine, absurd, teenage hidden object crap in it. Just good puzzles and a good plot.
