Death at Fairing Point: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector's Edition
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.

relaxing and fun
I really enjoy these games. They are light, bright and colorful with settings that remind one of a Thomas Kinkade painting. They have good plots that deal with dark subjects like murder without being gory or dark themselves. This one.. like the others.. has a great variety of puzzles and a good plot. It's a nice relaxing, enjoyable break from the dark creepy ones. I love all the puzzles and the beautiful artwork. Well worth the time and money investment. A great way to spend a couple of afternoons.

This game had a great, mysterious, romantic storyline. Although it is listed as a HO game, there were very few HOS. There were a lot of puzzles, some of which were fairly hard, at least for me. I skipped a few of them. By the time I was ready to give up on a puzzle, the skip button was usually ready.
The hint button worked well but filled slowly. The hint button also helped with finding the next location for action.
Although there was some returning to previous locations more than once, the maneuvering through the game was fairly logical. The tasks list was very helpful in this respect also. There is no map. I think the strategy guide was built in, but I'm not sure. Anyway, I did not need to refer to it or a walkthrough.
The bonus play tied well into the game and was worth the extra money. Bright graphics made this game pleasant to play

A really good all rounder. Nice "evolving" seek and find HO with lots of different scenes. Decent story line and mini games. Good graphics and very little "spook/dark" factor which I like. Not too complicated. Not too easy and certainly not repetitive.

Death at Fairing Point
A murder mystery and a love story in one. I thourghly enjoyed this game as the designers have come up with a game thats almost everything rolled into one. You have a murder mystery, a love story, HOS and a nice variety of puzzles. And there aint many games like this out there that i know of.

I was disappointed that it only took 4+ hours to complete when it cost $13.99
It was a good game and if you do not mind finishing the game quickly, buy it.

Great adventure game
Although not my favourite DK game, it still had all the good things I love about Dana Knightstone games. The storyline is great, not scary or dark even though it is about a ghost; excellent smooth and fast gameplay; challenging puzzles and adventure. My only criticism was that it felt just a bit too short. Maybe I just play too fast. I did love it though, and was very happy with my purchase of the CE.

Not For Me
I tried 3 x the only way it would even run was in window mode. I have( windows 8) thought that would be a sure No Problem.When I did chose to play it looked like my kind of game but, I do not like text in bubbles I prefer characters do the talking and not having the bubble take up so much of the screen. I will say yes to recommend because I didn't play the whole game so I have No right to choose NO. Enjoy

VERY EASY GAME - RELAXING FOR SOME
Unfortunately there were no modes of play, so there was no choice of a challenge for me, which was a shame. There were sparkles everywhere so all I had to do was click on them to find the clues. I became bored after a while.
There were voiceovers at the beginning of the game, but after that it all stopped and you had to read everything.
There is a diary to read if you need it.
The graphics are okay and I didn't have any problems seeing the sparkles to locate the clues. The music played quietly in the background.
There were plenty of mini-games and puzzles to solve, and once again they were all pretty easy and didn't take long to do.
There weren't many HOS to play and the few that were there were easy to play too.
I finished the game in a little over 4 hours. However, I don't think I will bother doing the bonus as I'm bored now.
I didn't need to use the skip button or the Strategy Guide.
This is definitely a game for beginners and intermediates who want to get the experience. However, experts will find this game too easy and may get bored.

Way too easy
Same old same old. Boring. Only good thing was that it did not have so many HO scenes. Puzzles and goals were too easy.
