Vampire Mansion: A Linda Hyde Mystery
Skip this one, it's a total waste
Delving again in BFG's treasure trove in search for the pearl of a game I came across this one. Not my lucky day !
There is an awful lot of dialogs, all scripted, many veeeeery long, so much of it all I ended up skipping them as I played the demo. Not a loss really as I didn't find the storyline particularly interesting, and it develops far too slowly anyway. The music is extremely annoying and weird. Most graphics are blurry, the HO Scenes in particular as if they were enlargements of low res snapshots. Some HOs are not too too difficult to find, others are.
One HO Scene is fiendish: you have to find 43 tiny pieces of stained glass followed by the reconstitution of a broken stained glass window, as a minigame, using... you guessed right.... the 43 bits in question. Small problem: you need to rotate these pieces by double clicking, but it didn't work
And so ended my 1 hour trial.
I was hoping the other minigames would give this game a sparkle of excitement. No way. I only saw two which were repeated over and over throughout the demo.
As for the heroine, it would have been better not to show one than drawing her with that permanent stupid expression on her face.
A game in which everything looks amateurish, which is apparently glitchy, and which doesn't contain anything that, for me, would justify a purchase even on the Daily Deal

The Worst Big Fish Game I Have Ever Played!
I always love most of BF's Games but this one was sooo disappointing. Before I purchased this game it seemed like it was going to be really awesome but boy was I wrong. It was so boring, the graphics where horrible, too much dialog and not enough play (honestly if I wanted to read instead of play this game I would have picked up one of my paranormal books), the plot was kinda lame. Sorry Big Fish but this one was so awful. I will start playing the trial version on every single game from now on before I buy!

Don't waste your money!!!!
Played a few minutes. To hard to find objects. I had to strain my eyes. So don't do the same. No purchase for me at all. You should think about that to.

Lind Hyde Vampire Mansion Collector's Edition
I like playing the, the chapters are very interesting, but I have not been able to find any game cheats or hints to help get to the next chapter.

Actually a fun game
Actually, the mini game with the window is quite easy. You have no need to flip the pieces. Though, I would only play this game if you have a high level of patience and do not get bugged by many pop-ups. You can delete them right away though...
