Shades of Death: Royal Blood
Goes steadily downhill
I was impressed with the first chapter; the second was almost as good but then the third seemed to be from a different game - it was far too short, too easy, the storyline almost vanished and even the graphics were inferior - particularly in the HOG's. If it had, say, five chapters, with a decent third chapter and a story that stood up throughout it would have been great.
What I liked about it, which I haven't seen before, was the temporary transformation of a scene to the same place before it suffered from neglect and deterioration. That was a good idea - so many games feature derelict, decrepit locations and it was good to see how it once was (in this case, haunted by the ghosts of those who once lived there) However, even this was confined to the first two chapters. It's as if they just got fed up of doing it and cut it short.

While I agree with most of the reviews on this game, I liked it for the visual quality and the storyline. It is a good game that kept my interest for the time it took to play, and I'm not at all sorry that I purchased it. Was it the most stunning and challenging game I've ever played? No, but that doesn't mean it's not worth playing. I found it enjoyable, and that's why I keep coming back to BFG!

Good, Solid Game.
Older-type game with plenty of HOs ( sometimes ambiguous objects),simple puzzles and a predictable story line. The collectible has only three parts and the vampires don't have much motivation, but, the artwork is good and the game's flow is pleasant. I got this game on sale and am well pleased.
If the player is looking for the ultimate in HO games, this is not it. Enjoyable, fun and worth the time and money.

I enjoyed playing this game, as it flowed from scene to scene and didn't require too much backtracking, but my only disappointment is that it was short. I played the demo, and only played an extra hour after buying it before I finished the game. I guess if you're advanced, you'll go through it really fast.
The hidden object scenes were good, as I didn't need to squint or stare at the screen to find objects, and the puzzles were fairly challenging. I also enjoyed the music - it wasn't overwhelmingly dramatic, and matched the gameplay perfectly.
All-in-all, a solid game - experienced players may find it too short though.

Good Game, Great Graphics
I enjoyed this game. I took my time and enjoyed the scenery along the way. The puzzles aren't too hard and the objects to find were large enough to see. I recommend this game.

I love this game
.This game is a lot of fun. It takes you on a journey to different times and different storylines.
I played the demo and was sucked into this game in the first five minutes. I knew that I would be buying this game and sure enough I did.
- Great graphics
- Fun storylines
- Fantastic HOS
- Great mimi games (hard enough to make it not dull)
- Help button recharges quickly.
Over all I give this a 5 star.
Check out the demo and you won't be disappointed.

Un-bloody vampire game is okay
I bought this as a Daily Double, and it was well worth the money. I enjoy HOGs and this one didn't fail me. Sure, the puzzles were fairly easy, but I haven't much patience anyway. It took me two hours to complete, so it's a fun way to spend a little time. By the way, the scenes are much lighter when you are in the spirit world, and that was even explained by the ghost. I usually turn off the sound, because I don't like the monotonous music. Try the game.
