Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull 4.1 5 208 208
Excellent adventure game. The best adventure game that I have played. July 17, 2012
Pirate Fun I really enjoyed this game. Solve the kidnapping, endure a few twists and turns, then try to find some pirate booty. The graphics and sound are excellent. The scenes with live actors are good. I enjoyed the mini games. There weren't many HOS. The only thing missing was a map that allowed you to click from place-to-place. The length of game play was good. I did have to consult the walk through a couple of times late in the game. This is the first Mystery Case Files game I've played and I will definitely be purchasing the others. July 14, 2012

Fun, challenging game! This game is challenging and long, but in a good way. I love the long games, makes me feel like I'm getting my moneys worth. I highly recommend this game. I've played it numerous times and still enjoy it immensely! July 2, 2012
Great Fun! I thought this game was alot of fun. Puzzles weren't too hard and it looked good! June 11, 2012
Great Game! I enjoyed this game tremendously. I really liked the live actors and the challenges were followed the story line in a logical way. May 26, 2012
Another M.C.F. Winner! It may not be the best of the series, but its up there and absolutely worth playing all the way through. It has the best ending sequence of the MCF series so far. I love the he live actor integration into these adventure games, but just like the others, the actual acting and scripts are horrendous! The game is filled with plenty of challenging puzzles and Hidden Object Games. The story is pretty darn good too. January 2, 2012
Skullbreaker - A Guy's Review *review based on completing the full game* This game seem to be on a higher budget than most games in this genre. The reason I say that is that it actually has live actors that seem capable of acting. I can only assume that these are real actors and not amateurs and family members that is often used in similar games. Professional or not, they do a great job in making you feel part of the story and help make you believe that you are on scene in the bayou somewhere in southern Louisiana. The graphics and animations in this game is top class. Everything is really crisp and highly detailed. The live actors are integrated in the back drops almost perfectly. Never did it feel out of place. The use of voice-overs are superb. You actually communicate with the characters in this game, and even though there are only a handful of them, this game feels more alive than most (if not all) games I've played so far. Sound effects, ambient sounds and background music all fits the game and adds to the atmosphere. The story too is clever, interesting and makes you want to solve it to figure out what has happened. There are some clever twists and turns. I wish there was a bit more to it, but all in all they did a great job. I have mixed feelings about the game play though. Some parts were truly brilliant, while other things were almost directly off putting. There is quite a bit of adventuring, and it is mostly done in a very clever way. You face a good selection of puzzles and a handful of HO scenes. Now, this game forces you to pay attention to details and make use of what you have in your inventory and also encourages you to use the journal. You are seldom told what to do in a puzzle (meaning there is no info), so if you have no clue what is going on, you have probably not come by or overseen some details elsewhere. Keep your eyes open and if you see something that looks like something somewhere it probably is. Take notes. It makes the goals of the puzzles much clearer, though sometimes it doesn't take away the brain twisting needed to solve them. I find this absolutely brilliant. This does not mean that only advanced players can get through this game, but it does offer challenging moments even for the experts. Luckily there is a very clever hint system in this game. You can select three levels of hints to help you along. After choosing the first it needs recharging before you can choose the second etc. And they are hints that reveal more and more on how to solve it. Or you can simply skip it all together. But if you do the latter you will not get to see how it is solved. When it comes to the HO scenes they are a bit disappointing. They are very cluttered and there are several small items that you need to find. The worst though is that you have to do most of them twice. Not only that, but you have to find several of the same items both times. That is just plain lazy of the developer. None of them are interactive either. Another thing that was a bit disappointing was that you have to do some errands for the characters you meet for them to reveal some more information. Clever idea and fun a couple of times, but this happens so often that you feel more like an errand boy/girl than a detective. Towards the end the game is great though, both story wise and game play wise. It is truly a grand finale. I could not find a difficulty setting in this game, so I can only assume it is just the one. I did find something called "attitude setting", but I figured that had to do with language. There is both a journal and a map. The map is not very helpful, but it is still a cool map. The journal is almost totally necessary in this game. The hint button recharges rather quickly, but isn't always available. There was a couple of times in the game where I really wish it was. Specially seeing you don't get any information on what is going on and what you need to do with certain puzzles and tasks. This game should ensure some entertainment for the advanced and expert players out there, but also beginners should at least try it out. It is challenging and engaging even with the few setbacks it carries. I would dare to say highly recommended. I would have given it 4.5 if possible, but ended up on 4 because of the "flaws" described earlier. Not much more would have to be done to make this a clear 5. For the guys: No gender bias in this game as you are only referred to as "detective". Also the story should be appealing to both genders. TJ November 9, 2012
strange game I really like all of my MCF games but this one was somewhat strange. The real people talking all corny and all was a hoot. But I hated the voice over on the last game that man was irritating and loud. Mostly he made me jump out of my skin and not in a good way. I just turned the sound off on the end game I didn't like it. The games were fairly hard and took some time that was fun. Really my most favorite part of the game was the end with the two husband and wife talking, that was hysterical....good laugh....Not a bad game but not as good as my other MCF games. December 8, 2011
