An excellent play! Lots of places to visit, more than average HOSs, and a mysterious story line that draws you in as the detective. Graphics were perfect for the story line, mysteriously twilight and spooky. Lasted longer than a lot of HOGs, and the extra game play was great. Puzzles ran the gambit from short to "I just might pull my hair out". Throughly enjoyed this one and now I am off to be entertained by another Shadow Wolf Mystery! It was great fun for me and I hope the next one delivers more of the same!

Wonderfully Scary Game!
I loved playing this game, not knowing if there was a real werewolf "dogging" me, or just a mad villain intent on throwing me off his trail. Great HOS's and puzzles, and background music that left me feeling on my own in a gothic landscape. Loved this one! And the bonus and follow-up games are great, as well.

I Liked This Game
If you like HOS, than this is a game for you. There are a lot of them in this HOG? perhaps a bit too many for my taste.
There are puzzles; some are more difficult than others but as a general rule I skip over them anyway because I?m not very good at them.
There are two modes; regular and expert ? I played the game using the regular setting.
The bonus content is your standard stuff: music, wallpaper, concept art and screensavers; certainly nothing to write home about. I?m new to HOGS, and so I get the CE for the sake of having a strategy guide? which I only needed to use a couple of times in this game.
The hint button can only be used in the HOS, but not in the rest of the game. It recharges in a short time span, but takes a while if you want to skip over a puzzle.
I liked the storyline although the bonus chapter on the CE left me feeling a bit short changed; the story ended rather abruptly.
The graphics were decent, and as the game progressed I really felt as if I was taking a walk through the countryside.
Overall, I thought that this was a good game.

liked it but wish it had a hint button
I really like ERS games. I got this on for half price knowing it did not have a hint button. I just with they would put on in to help. The HOS are not hard and the puzzles are not hard either. You do have to go back and forth for clues but not as bad as some games. It has a good flow to the game. I would have given it 5 stars if it had the hint button.

Entertaining hidden object puzzler
Whilst I love something to really give my brain a good workout, and I love a tough puzzle, sometimes I just want to enjoy a story and have fun along the way. This game is just that, the puzzles are just enough to to keep your interest, but certainly won't have you pulling your hair out, and there are plenty of them. It's a good balance between puzzles and hidden objects, and the hidden object scenes are interactive and of the same challenge level as the puzzles, not too hard and not too easy.
I played on the harder setting, and whilst you do still get sparkles for the hidden object scenes, it didn't really bother me in this game as it does with some others.
The artwork is lovely, and the music is just right for the mood of the game. I actually had it a bit louder than with some games as it was quite relaxing.
If you just want to sit back and enjoy some relaxed gaming, and give your brain more of a light jog than a full aerobic workout, I don't think you'll be disappointed. I'm guessing about 4 hours but I played over a few nights so can't be precise. The bonus chapter was very quick for me, just 30 minutes, so if like me, you only get CEs for the extra play, I'd stick with the SE, the story wraps itself up nicely before then anyway. This is the only reason I didn't give it an overall rating of 5.
Right then, onto Shadow Wolf Mysteries: Bane of the Family I think. Happy gaming fishes!

wolf people game
Those who don't like long streach back and forth game.and storyline runs smoothly. This game for you. For me sorta easy since i rarely use map and guide unless required.Puzzles and hidden games are even to every one enjoyment. Puzzles easy to medium. Hidden games are easy to see a plus and not cluttered and easy to find.2 level of difficulty..Developers of games are trying to create games for every ones taste. Play demos first before buy. i bought this game. ...... ...

Had a most enjoyable playing this tantalising game. Graphics are top-notch and the voices give another dimension to the game. A definite late night playing this one!

Bit of a Howl!
The story line is OK. A European looking town is terrorized by something, several deaths and there are a lot of wolves roaming around so the locals are afraid of werewolves. A friendly seeming wolf leads you around the story and you discover the solution to the problem.
The graphics are just OK because they are "fuzzy". It darkly lit to go along with the story line, I guess. I had a huge problem with the sparrow that kept popping around in what seems nighttime. Also the "policeman" that is asking for your help has a Aussie accent. The animation is pretty amateurish. The music is nothing special and totally ignorable.
The HOs are totally do-able but watch out because the ones in yellow are hidden but they don't change to white when you find their "hidden" location so you sometimes don't know if there are more hidden locations to look for things.
The games are about average and fun.
It's a fun game but not outstanding.

Shadow Wolf Mysteries: Curse of the Full Moon CE
Who's afraid of the big bad wolf? Obviously not you detective, the town you are investigating is swarming with brazen wolves and rumors are spreading like a plague, are there werewolves? Fingers are pointing at the gypsy from the circus who just so happens to own a wolf, but she claims that her wolf is innocent!
The storyline is fantastic, and the cutscenes are very well done, the characters are detailed and the voiceovers are well done. I would have given this game 5 stars but there is no map and no hint button whatsoever! The Hidden Object Scenes are fairly interactive and they are entirely list finds, some items are very small. The mini games range from simple to complicated, the game I enjoyed the most was recreating a pattern of gold and silver tiles using directional arrows that move the tiles up, down, left or right.
I understand that this is an older game, but from what I can tell the Collectors Edition only has Wallpapers, Screensavers, Soundtracks and a built in Strategy Guide that is only available in the full version, enjoy!
