Shiver: Vanishing Hitchhiker Collector's Edition
I loved playing this game :) It was even a bit creepy at some moments.

I fairly enjoyed the game. Creepy in most scenes.
Graphics were excellent. HOS were pretty easy. Puzzles were also pretty easy to me.
One downfall was there was no map. Going back and forth majority of the time became tedious after a while.
Hint button refills pretty quickly. The skip button takes maybe 1-2 minutes to fill, but luckily the puzzles were easy enough to where I didnt need the skip button.
I didnt really use the journal. It seemed more useless.
The bonus play was good too. Good length.

Hidden Object Game
It was ok a part from the Strategy Guide in which kept going back to the main menu of the Chapters every time you exit it then when you go back to it again you have to click through the pages to where you last left, which was so annoying. I would recommend the game if you don't have to use the strategy guide during the game.

Atmospheric Ghost Story!
Absolutely loved this game! There were times when the combination of the music and the scenery and the appearance of a ghost or two made my flesh turn cold and the goosebumps run up and down my back and arms! Great music and background, great scenes and HOS's. The only thing I would have changed is the back story of the little boy to make him more a part of the game, instead of waiting to find out a little more about him in the bonus.

I found this game to have a rather nice storyline, and it adhered to the story line taking you through twists and head scratching turns, but sticking to the storyline nevertheless. The graphics went from pretty good to so-so in places to downright blurry in others. The game didn?t feature a map, which would have been a very nice addition, but thankfully the hint feature would direct you in a general direction for more game play. The puzzles had skip buttons, and the game did feature a camera and a flash light. I particularly enjoyed the flash light feature because some of the hidden object scenes did have a rather dark shadow cast on them, and the flash light helped make them more enjoyable.
The ?extras? that came with the collector?s edition were video?s, wallpapers, walk-through and concept art. If there was extra play, I didn?t see any.
The negative points for me concerning the game were; very slow charge on game skips, some swear words (I could have done without them), and I got almost all the way through the game and the screen went dark, all except for the mouse arrow. I listened, no sound started up, and I waited until I realized the game had stopped working. I closed out the game, and opened it back up again to finish the game. I realize there are lots of reasons that can happen, but I thought I would mention the glitch. My machine works fine and I?ve not had any problems prior or since.
Do I recommend this game? Yes, it is fun and lengthy.

Good game and not that hard
Good game. Not too much running around to find clues.I was a little concerned that not enough light for the HO but finally noticed I could use the flash lite. Worth buying. Not a hard game at all.
Just a fun game.

Perfect spooky mystery HO
This game is currently standing as my all time favorite from Bigfish, and has been for awhile! It's spooky, intriguing, not too challenging and not too easy, and unlike some other games I've played, it doesn't lose focus of the story line just for the sake of extra puzzles and game length. I played this the first time in the dark, after the kids went to bed, and a few scenes actually made me jump! Love this game! Highly recommended!

this was an excellent gaming experience. when i got the game i didn't think it would be so creepy. the story got me from the start. unlike other games i played this actually made me jump few times, which is pretty hard to achieve even for a horror movie. the thing with the camera is taken from other game so not original. it has voice over, very nice cut scenes and the music didnt bother me at all. the only thing i found a little bit frustrating was that the hog and puzzles were way too easy. it's an overall relaxing game until some creepy ghost jumps in the screen suddenly and makes you spill your coffee
