Mystery Trackers: Raincliff
We really enjoyed the MT series with Raincliff being the best of the lot. Interesting, very involved storyline and the HO's were great. In many places there are more than one per scene. Chasing the 'frogs' was a lot of fun too. Don't make a 'pass' on the Mystery Trackers games! Overall this is a fantastic game.

Raincliff Is Right On Track!
Bravo! A sequel that is worthy of "The Void". I played the demo for about 10 minutes before I bought the SE. I just might buy the CE, too!
If you don't like having to travel to many, many locations - this is not the game for you. I loved it. This ranks with my (so far) 3 favourite BF games. It's wonderfully long and absorbing.
Even the CE was TOTALLY worth the money!

Elephant games without the extras can be irritating
I found the game more irritating than fun. Too many places to visit, too many puzzles needing elements, and when you find an element you need to hit "hint" to figure out WHERE. No one has that good a memory, and having to keep asking "what do I do with this" is too much to ask...
Elephant games does that too often. We overlook it because of details like otherworldy, magical settings, or cute helpers, or just an intereting storyline. But here we keep gong from room to room, and not learning much except that we may have to backtrack somwhere else we have forgotten, or something we may need later on. And no characters to talk to us, or to identify with.
Others might like it, and enjoy the challenge. I find it just annoying and I did not feel I was missing anything if I deleted it and got something else that I enjoyed more.

What a fun night
Yes, another all nighter I had. Loved every minute of it. This game is fun and challenging. I loved that I had to run all around everywhere and to remember where things were. Good for the brain. Visual and sound were brillent. What I thought was great was that it was quite a long game which we could really get our teeth into. Can't wait for another one to come. Well done.

I managed to traipse through the demo, barely. I love HOPA games. I loved the snowy look and the look of the abandoned town. However, finding 15 objects in the beginning that had no use at all didn't impress me at all. I'd find a tool, use it along the way, and find out, oh hey, that';s not good enough... I need another tool. That's not adventure. That's fill to make the game longer. I'd rather play a game that is 2 hours long and interesting and that makes sense than one such as this that's more like a wild goose chase.

Mystery Trackers: Raincliff is a long sprawling game that really delivers in all aspects. It has a good (albeit hokey) storyline, good voiceovers for characters, some challenging puzzles and in casual mode, a hint button that refreshes quickly. Once I started playing, it was hard to stop. The HOS are plentiful and not that hard but present enough of a challenge to not use hints, graphics are great, and in playing the game, you'll be doing lots of running around from scene to scene. The game is not linear, and does not have a map, so you do need to keep some memory of what scene is located in what part of the game. I now have all the Mystery Trackers games, and although I didn't like "The Void", I loved this one and will now be moving onto "Black Isle"

Not that enjoyable
I really wanted to like this game, as I enjoyed the first Mystery Trackers one. But I found this game just frustrating and irritating at times. The constant going back and forth between so many scenes got very repetitive, and without a map, it felt like a waste of time. After a scene was completed, you're not locked out of it, which makes you wonder if you're actually done with the scene. The puzzles were fun, for the most part. The clues they give you though pretty much tell you what you need to do, which takes away some of the fun. It took us longer than normal to finish this particular game, since we we're not as invested in it.
