The Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes 2 Icon
The 1st one is better
by Anita Bryant, USA - Jun 10th 2010

I bought the 1st Lost Cases of Sherlock Holmes so I thought I would give this one a try. It's ok but the first one was better in my opinion. In this one you don't have Sherlock's hat hidden anywhere. There seem to be more mini-games. I found some of them annoying because most of the time you had to rotate pieces to make them fit. I also didn't like the fact that unlike the first game when you found the clues for a certain suspect, the clock stopped so you could read their information. In this one the clock does not stop. They also used some British terms sometimes which made it a little harder for an American like me to find some of the clues. The cases also don't start out easy to hard like in the 1st one. Some of the early cases were hard, and some of the later cases were quite easy. I thought the graphics of the 1st one was better too. Especially when it came to eliminating the suspects.

Love & Death: Bitten Icon
My first hidden object game
by April Stiller, USA - Jun 8th 2010

This was the first hidden object game that I've tried, and I liked it a lot. The scenes and tasks were fun to explore and try. Plenty of different puzzle to keep you occupied throughout the game. Dialogue was full of witty banter. Thought the "love story" part between the two main characters could have been more convincing though. Didn't see what they "saw" in each other :)

The Legend of Crystal Valley Icon
Different and intreguing
by Jennie Morgan, USA - Jun 7th 2010

This game has a very interesting story and I kept playing initially because of that. But then the art, music and amuzing and adult dialogue kept me interested. The puzzles are not difficult and they are ones I have seen many times before, but the scenery and effects were new to me and lovely. Not a short game, but not too long either. Worth your money and time.

this game is par
by Jon Evans, USA - Jun 7th 2010

This game isn't too bad but the dialog can get in the way sometimes. Luckily, you can fastforward. There are times when you can get stuck looking for items.

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Collector's Edition Icon
Really Good Game!!!
by michelle Scholze, USA - Jun 5th 2010

Like the other reviewer, I like all of these games, and I also agree Return to Ravenhurst is the best. But that said this game comes in a close second. I would definitely recommend this game. If you are looking for another game that is similar to this try Campfire Legends - The Hookman. All three of the mentioned games are in my top five.

Dam Beavers Icon
Dam Beavers
by larraine Taylor, USA - Jun 3rd 2010

This is the most fun and challenging game for kids and grown ups that I have played! My whole family bought it for thei computers.
The graffics are awesome. It teaches spelling in such a fun way! The story line really a fun one.

This is my favorite game so far.

Do you have any more games like this? I would love to buy one!!

Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove Collector's Edition Icon
Another Mystery Case Files winner
by Jennie Morgan, USA - May 30th 2010

I've enjoyed playing every one of these games, and this one is well done also. While I have liked Return to Ravenhurst best, this is well done, long enough and tricky enough to keep you entertained.

Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera Icon
Interesting and spooky
by Jennie Morgan, USA - May 30th 2010

This game took a little time to get into, but I ended up enjoying it. Some of it is truly spooky, icky, and creepy. Not too difficult, and not too short. Enjoy.

Tournament Poker Icon
Tournament Poker
by J.M. Binno, USA - May 30th 2010

Not a good poker challenge game. Bets are locked in and betting maximums cannot be increased. Game explanations are poor. There are player graphics after every game that are really boring after awhile. Screen is very small. If you know the games it may be okay except that the computer players frequently stay in the game when they clearly (as in stud poker) are clear losers.

Aquaria Icon
Simply amazing
by shortymcbluehair, USA - May 29th 2010

This game is amazing. Beautiful art, beautiful music, beautiful story line. Tough boss battles and some tough things to do but highly addicting. The world is HUGE and this game is well worth the money. I actually paid less when Mac Games had a special, but if I had known how awesome it is, I would not have waited to buy. It is well worth the money. Also has mods, I have never done this but am excited to do so, create my own levels and things. It teaches you how to do this as well. The music is so sweet I may have to buy the soundtrack.

Fiona Finch and the Finest Flowers Icon
Cute game.. with issues
by Jill Garrett, USA - May 27th 2010

This game looks quite cute and fun to play. However, I cannot seem to get past the area where you cross-breed the plants. Would love to try it, but it doesn't look like it will happen!

Jewel Quest 4: Heritage Icon
Jewel Quest 4: Heritage
by Mel Patrick, Canada - May 26th 2010

This is a very stunning game in both game play and strategy considering it's a match three style game.

The game starts at the root of the family tree and a decent story line. From there you work your way up the tree. In doing so the levels start easy, then go to medium, hard and finally very hard.

In the hours of game play that I have in it, I have yet to get passed the medium puzzles, there simply isn't enough time for me to accomplish that. This exposes the games single weak point. It doesn't adjust itself time wise if you continually lose in a level and there is no "relaxed mode" to kill the timer. Thus it might loose it's appeal if you're stuck.

Pretty Creepy

The game place was interesting, and somewhat off putting. However the game is fun and moves along comfortably.

Strange Cases: The Tarot Card Mystery Icon
Interesting, but nothing very new
by Jennie Morgan, USA - May 23rd 2010

This is a good HO game, with puzzles that you have seen before, but nicely done. All in all, a good game, but not a great one. Predictable story.

Mushroom Age Icon
lots of humor
by Naomi Smits, Netherlands - May 23rd 2010

This was really a surprising and fun game! It was surely different from all the other hidden object / puzzle games I played before. The story is really surprising, fun puzzles and sometimes difficult too. If you know anything about history and filosofy you'll see that these guys did there homework and must have had lots of fun making this game.
There were some problems at first but the updates fixed it ok. Can't wait for the next game of these makers!

X3: Reunion Icon
Lame
by Travis Gray, USA - May 23rd 2010

This game is so behind it's time. The space flight doesn't feel at all realistic, no sense of intertia at all. There is nothing for a tutorial, so I'm just stumbling along blindly trying to figure out how do do ANYTHING. The controls are not intuitive at all. I am severely not impressed, and severely pissed I just shelled out $40 for this game. I mean I'd much rather be playing something like Wing Commander III back on my SNES from 15 years ago or something like Escape Velocity Nova, which although simple graphically, blows this game out of the sky in terms of intuitive control and fun factor, not to mention giving you some sort of direction and tutorial. I mean did I miss something here?

Mushroom Age Icon
Mushroom Age
by Joe Slavinsky, USA - May 22nd 2010

This game was pretty bad. The game play & puzzles were amateurish. The dialog was sophmoric, and I suspect it was NOT meant for children. The game was developed by non-Americans, with fairly limited English & History skills. I also received 2 separate updates for the game, which corrected an error, which wouldn't let me get past level 16, despite the fact that I solved the puzzle. Maybe their next game will be better, but I would avoid this one. Fortunately, it was only $9.95, for which I got a fair amount of game play, but the reason for a lot of game play, was trying to figure out where they were trying to go with this game.
