Mystery Case Files: 13th Skull
Don't waste your time
Not a very engaging or interactive game. Suitable for middle-late primary aged kids - definitely too lame for adults

This was the last Mystery Case File game I needed to buy to complete the series. I wish I hadn't! It was so long and drawn out running back and forth only to find I really didn't know what i was looking for or supposed to do. Everything has to be done in a certain order or you can't advance any further in the game. I spent more time writing things down and reading entries than playing the game. HOS's were pretty good but there was always one item that you just couldn't see so you had to use the hint. There were no instructions for the games and most of the time the hints didn't help and those were the games you cant skip, which I generally don't do. I just didn't get any pleasure out of this game and in fact didn't finish it, wiped it off my computer. I have never done that before. I was such a shame because the other games are some of my very favorites.

I loved this game
I wasnt expecting this game to be as good as it was. I usually play on expert level if offered and this one was still fun, challenging, and of course the graphics great.

I'm fairly new to the HO game genre....and I'm hooked. This game was awesome. I liked the fact that the game sorta points you in the right direction. I loved it

Awsome-A Must Have
This game had everything: a lot to do, great characters (I am still laughing over some of them), beautiful graphics. This was also a long game which I love- definately got my money's worth with this one. Why, oh why can't there be more games of this caliber?

It was a nice change.
i thought this game was a nice change to other games, the video game backgrounds with the real life people i loved everything about this game until i got stuck.. now i dislike it very much.

Another great MCF!
This is again a great MCF! As a detective, you have to find a person, a ghost, a pirate...
- The graphics are great, with real persons.
- The sound is adding to the creepy atmosphere.
- The objects in the HOS are quite easy to find.
- The puzzles are sometimes challenging. I was happy to have the walkthrough.
- You have a journal that is very helpful.
- The dialogs are sometimes quite long, but they contain useful hints.
- There is a map that is actually part of a puzzle, so of no use otherwise.
- The hint system is good, giving you advice for the next task.
- There is a lot of to and fro, but you don't get lost.
- The game is long; I needed about 5 hours.
All in all, a great creepy game, with a twist!

OK but not for me
I just could not get into the game. Only played the 30 min. but just too much going all over the place to find things. Try it for yourself. Graphics is good but no voice over.

Don't miss this Catch of the Week!
Loved every second of this game. Talking to the people was FUN... and having to go on a scavenger hunt to locate things for them or complete a chore was so much better than finding hidden objects in a junk pile!
I own the CE but this game is a good stand alone, too. I don't know WHY this game hasn't received a 5 star yet but at this price you can't go wrong so give it a try!

Another Winner from Mystery Case Files
WOW! This games presented a challenge from beginning to end! The mini games/puzzles were very complex and you constantly had to refer to your notes--great challenge. I'm not sure which I like best--this one or Return to Ravehurst. Well done Mystery Case Files. Keep up the good work!
