Drawn?: Trail of Shadows
Did they just get tired?
The entire Drawn series is great. Love the graphics, story, and even the voices. However, is it just me or are they skimping on the length of the game? I was very excited to play it when I purchased it but was disappointed after I finished it in just over an hour... =( And I am not, by any means, some crazed hidden-object/action game whiz. It just seemed to be shorter than the other two, each. I know this is supposed to be an "economic depression" or whatever but that doesn't mean that I'm going to keep purchasing the games if they keep getting shorter and shorter. Either way, great in all other areas. So kudos on that end.

Too Many Glitches
I have started this game over several times and am just giving up and dumping it. Items I found and need suddenly disappear, never to be seen again. I'm sick of starting over. I can't recommend it and certainly won't be purchasing others in the series.

DO NOT BUY!
i was so so so disappointed in this game. The fun factor and the sound and visual quality was good but the length of the game was extremely poor. I absolutely could not believe how short the game was! I have the other drawn games, my husband and i love them, they are our favorite. However this one gets such low ratings because of the length. My husband and finished the game in a little under an hour...waste of money in my opinion...

Not for Me
Bought it, tried it, deleted it.
Got to the second portal, and though it probably say's more about me than the game, I was so frustrated trying shut the 3 eyes to open the portal through the vines, I decided to go no further. Even the YouTube solutions took between 3 & 10 minutes. It ceases to be a puzzle and becomes a chore when the method works against the solution.
I agree that the book thing did not work in this iteration and maybe the devs have becomed tired of the genre, it's definitely run out of steam.
I also found the music very annoying, but was more annoyed when I couldn't turn it off without reducing the speaker volume on my computer.

Glad it is over !
The most UN-enjoyable game. Exhausting !
The graphics are very inticing.
However, the game itself is such a struggle and "messy" to play. Hiccoughs throughout, the worst part of the game is the pop-up book. It really doesn't work.
The game is very short #thankfully!# and definately not worth the money.

Not happy with this installment
I feel awful even saying this, but ... the mouse factor ruined it for me. You could not change the custom cursor, therefore, not a "tight" playing game for me. However, graphics were great and sound good. But nothing like the original Drawns. Sorry folks.

Sorry but I was very disappointed in this one. I have loved Drawn until now. The game was very short and ended before the story even seemed to start. It almost seemed as though the game was an incomplete concept. There were some great pieces to the puzzle but it was never put together as a whole.

An awful game ...
Just cannot get into this game, very childish, hard to figure out, hints are ok but not a great deal of help. Now I have torn most of my hair out it will go onto the back burner never to return...waste of money.

I would not recommend this game
This game is full of puzzles and you have to solve them to continue. This is no skipping puzzles. I would not have completed it without using the walk-through at each screen. I found the game very frustrating. It was more stressful than fun. Didn't even finish it.

Glad it was a freebie
This was the most boring, inane game I have ever played. It wasn't fun, challenging, nor was the story line anything to rave about.
