Death at Fairing Point: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition
Great HO/Puzzle Game!
What a great game! The story was great, trying to solve a mystery with the help of ghosts without all the doom and gloom of other HO games was a nice change. I loved all the different puzzles that were used and the artwork/graphics were beautiful. This game kept me entertained from beginning to end, including the bonus game. I can't wait to play the next one!

I loved this game. The scenes are lush, interesting and gorgeous. Some of the mini-games were challenging for me, but then I am not a game whiz. I bought the Collector's Version and thank God for the tips because I would have been stuck many times. Really fun, though, I recommend this one.

I LOVE IT!!!
I LOVE IT!!!! I like this game because I enjoy so much, and I liked how love can be a death but the spirit is repeated again. but in the end I got it made me cry, and I'm glad they met up again. I like the way you look. I cried so much.

Good Game - plenty to do
Death at Fairing Point was a good interesting game with plenty to do but it lacked a little something - probably needed more intrigue and more intensity and maybe a little less romance. Having said that I really enjoyed the game as a whole and it was up with the usual great value that we expect with Colectors Edition games. Being a fiction novellist you are on holidays and are haunted by the ghost of a poor painter who is in love with a rich heiress. You must look further that the obvious suicide and try to find out who the killer was. This was quite a long game with just enough dialogue to guide you through the game and the music was not intrusive. The graphics were clear bright and colourful overall but just a tad dark in a few places but this did not distract from a great presentation. The hidden objects were mostly quite easy to find but some just needed the occasional hint. The puzzles were quite nifty and some were a little more difficult to solve than others but there was a good variety of different ones which makes a change. Good game, I enjoyed it.

So well crafted!
This game was "easy" but I didn't mind.
I loved the story, was kept on my toes by the variety of HO types of puzzles, and the story was so so cool.
I loved the way the whole game was built like chapters in a novel, and I would tag this as one of my favorites!

Death at Fairing Point
Like all of Dana Knightstone's Novel games, I quite enjoy them. They present enough of a challenge that I can't just skip through them. There is a decent storyline through each game. While I have seen reviews attesting dislike at the out-loud thinking of the hero, I find human utterances make the game more "liveable", not just a silent screen play.
Be sure to play Tuscan Skies CE, a Dana Knightstone Novel game.

Dana Knightstone Novel
- great storyline and unexpected ending
- setting in Europe, my favorite for a game!
- nice graphic, very well drawn
- good voice overs although it's just Dana narrates her steps to next level
- variety of puzzles and mini-games, some are repeated on different levels
- SO MANY puzzles and mini-games! There are very few HOG, which I think I can count with my ten fingers, and mini games like every 5 minutes and consecutive, even 3 times in a row. It is exciting at first but then it gets frustrating and annoying.
- Hint recharge very slow
- CE bonus very minimal, only bonus gameplay is available
- strategy guide not easy to use

not a bad game
Well lets see. The HOS are different but ok. The puzzles are ok also. Some of the trouble is that you have to be right on the object to pick it up or use it. Seems pretty simple and easy to me with not to much running around. Not much for voice over and the graphic are just ok. The music to me puts me to sleep so have to get rid of it. This is about a 3.5 game to me.

This game was great! Looking forward for playing the next one!
I thought this game was fun! It kept me interested the whole way. I liked the graphics and sound. The plot was good. I did get confused a couple of times (i.e. did a lot of 'virtual' running from place to place), but it was a really nice game to spend time doing.

Love the travelling in England and France!!
I enjoyed this game although it took me everso long to complete.
But complete it I did.. yahoo!!
For some reason it seemed to go on and on and on with no end in sight.
An awful lot of forwards and back to retrieve or solve a puzzle but that is part of the game when ppl like me need a SG otherwise I just get lost..lol
The storyline was wonderful, the ghostly appearances of characters was the best I have seen and really made the game special.
Level of challenge was not exceptional but did put the whole game together.
I have to admit I enjoyed Death Under Tuscan Skies a lot more in comparison.
I would recommend this game to intermediate or experts and only to novices if they really want to work at finding solutions.
