Paranormal Crime Investigations: Brotherhood of the Crescent Snake
Not going to set the world on fire, but this is an enjoyable game to play.
Its HO scenes were good and easy without being a total bore. Again, graphics good not great. Their bright colours and modern objects were a pleasant change from the usual dreary game. I really liked the music.
Story was easy to follow but unusual despite the just-now-everywhere setting in New Orleans Mardi Gras, voodoo added.
I also enjoyed having a character to work with through the game. Somehow, it seems to make it more involving.
The ending was satisfying, the investigation was completed, but another one was about to start. Left the possibility of a sequel without leaving you hanging and frustrated.
I am sure I will be playing this often.

This is a good game, very good in fact.
Unfortunately it starts off so slowly. I?m amazed anyone would buy it after just a 1 hour demo, but don?t be too hasty with this game, it develops very well.
I really struggled through the first hour, the hidden object scenes were murky and difficult to navigate, the slow screen changes were annoying and the initial game play was boring.
But, but, but, once I understood the game play, I was completely enthralled and did not stop playing until the game ended. The Hidden Object scenes seemed to become clearer, the slow screen changes no longer bothered me and I was anything but bored.
I played in expert mode and had to use the walkthrough twice, so the game was challenging.
I used the PCI (Electronic Manual) and map frequently to keep abreast of things, personally I enjoy reading the dialogue, but if you don?t like reading you can just focus on the words highlighted in red, their the ones pertinent to the plot.
Yep! This game is good, loved it.

Good, but Slow and Dark
Despite being a good game with challenging puzzles, did not catch me.
The music is repetitive, the story, and the environment, not stimulated me. The speech of the characters is through balloons to be read, making the game a little tedious ... I get kind of boring.
I recommend for people who really likes slow and dark games.

If you're considering buying the CE...
I always like to know what you get for the extra money you pay for a collector's edition of a game, so I thought I'd add a little info. The bonus chapter is good, and adds about an hour to an already decent length game. The music is fine for the game, but not something you'd want to listen to on its own, so the soundtrack doesn't add much. The minigames, which you can replay in the CE, are too easy to want to play again. The wallpapers are fine, but too depressing to want to use as my desktop. I only needed the walkthrough once, and could have found the info I needed online. So, in short, buy the CE if you want the extra chapter to play, but probably not worth it for the other extras.

- good length
- fun mini-games
- items you search for a re well identifiable
- although the art is good enough to find the items, the graphics aren't one of the best
- didnt really like the setting and the atmosphere. Others may like it better, but there was something about it that I didn't like. Kind of hard to put my finger on it.

Something to make a person grab bag of candy or pad and pen to keep track of all the clues. I have say it had me screaming no in some areas...next time heads up in some areas...it was very dark! Little too creepy.

This game had all the parts. HOGS, adventure, puzzles. Just kind of ho hum. It wasn't bad but the story did not grab me. The HOGS were really easy but beautiful to look at.

too much going on with no help
I like to play but this one has too much going all over the place and the hint button does not help. Not much for voice over. The map did not help at all. I did not finish the first hour because they was no help when I got stuck. The HOS were ok but some of the items are hard to find.

This game is similar to the rest of the games that have been produced throughout the past month (dark, creepy, mystery, hidden object). If it's your first time playing this type of game, then you may enjoy it.
