Scratches Director's Cut
Love these kinds of adventure games, so tired of HOG. I like HOG on occasion, but seems all "adventure games" here are every other scene HOG. We need more games like this. This is exactly the type of adventure game I love. However that said, I was thankful I downloaded the demo first. I have never in 10-15 years of playing pc games ever gotten sick from the camera...this time I did. I'm very disappointed, the reviews are so good, and the ambiance of the game is fascinating, I was soooo eager to play. Unfortunately, after 20 minutes I had to delete the game. Too bad, wish dev. would not do the panoramic view, I even put it on slow and it didn't seem to slow it down any. Never thought I would get motion sickness from a game, very disappointed, I was really looking forward playing. Because of the quality/style of the ?adventure? I will recommend, but not if you get motion sickness or headaches!

Kind of Blah..
I played this awhile ago and probably won't play it again. The story is a worn out one and don't be impressed with the words "Director's Cut". It was just blah.....:(

Graphics were great, enjoyed the 360 surroundings, objectives weren't to hard to figure out at first but then found myself going back and forth to often to the walk through. I was enjoying this game at the beginning but for me it just got to complicated or maybe I just got to bored with it after realizing that sure, somewhat like Tomb Raider, not really...Tomb Raider is a much bigger game and heck, my graphics card can't handle a Tomb Raider game on this computer...I would need to install a stronger card. So maybe my expectations were to high for this game. No matter, I do recommend anyone trying it, because it wasn't bad all the same. Oh, I did get a good startle at the end there, good for you Big Fish. ;)

After reading other reviews I decided to try the game.
To be honost I only got 9 minutes playtime, before I HAD TO QUIT. Like other members have stated, with the cursor movement there is a chance of getting motion sickness. The setup in game for mouse speed nor the dpi setting on my mouse had any actual effect. So take that into consideration before buying.
Concerning visual and sound, those 9 minutes were enough for me to think they are awesome! Truly beautifull.
So if you never get motion sickness from games, this can be a game for you. If you do have a tendancy for it, than stay away. But since i cant last more than 10 minutes I have to say not recommend.

Horrible Experience...For Me
I have played a very large amount of games over the years, and this was the first I thought was horrible.
Now, this is just MY opinion...others may like it.
Navigation was dizzyingly hard to do, and spent the entire demo trying to get around in just three rooms! I never thought I would be affected like some with the 360 degree navigation, but after an hour I felt lousy. I would have gone outside for fresh air if I could have found the correct door again! *smiles*
The only thing I can recommend is that others try the demo first before buying it in case it affects you the same way.

I rarely review games, but I decided this one needed some comments. It is so dark you can't see where to go, tasks are obscure and not intuitive, and to solve it you need to check the walkthrough constantly. It is not fun when you don't stand any chance at all in figuring out what to do, but instead have to just stumble around in the dark, hoping to stumble over something. I'm deleting it without finishing it. Like I said it's not fun.

Not for me
I agree with other reviews that the scenery control makes you very sea sick. An old-fashioned adventure game. Very outdated now. Slow moving and dreary music. I ony played about 15 minutes and was bored to death. Sorry.

Not my type of game
I really enjoy HOGs and decided to try a different type of game. I have played a couple of times for a few minutes each time and cannot seem to get anywhere other than wandering around the same rooms. I do not understand what the objectives are or what the whole point of the game is since there are no hints or objective guides. I will try it again but with the walkthrough.

No go for me!
Just a few minutes in and I knew this WASN'T the game for me! This game caused me to get motion sickness. I simply hate 360 degree movement. I wasn't even able to figure out how to use the key to unlock the front door and I felt too dizzy to continue. The rest of the game may have been good, but it sure doesn't start out that way!

We did not like this game.
Although the graphics were excellent, we did not like this game! Was hard to navigate and the motion made us a bit nauseated. We also thought the game a bit confusing with no hints or instructions on what to do next. We will not be purchasing.
