Dark Dimensions: City of Fog
Pretty Decent Game
I enjoyed this game quite a bit but for me I think it could have been even better. I suppose I would have liked a little more to do at times, seems a lot of times you would go through a lot of trouble to gain access somewhere and then when you finally get there, there might be 1 or 2 things to do in that area, although a lot of the stuff was just informative to keep the story moving along it just seemed to me like it would have been better to have more things to do. In the end I enjoyed the game and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Loved the Game, but had some glitches!
Well, the game itself was great with a lot of different venues I thought it was a fun game, but the major thing that I did not like was that when you were doing the HOS's...the kind where you match two items to make the one listed...I had to click the second part at least 20 times before it stuck. The game was saying you need a tool or that just happens in the movies (which was very annoying}. Let's face it, a fish tail is the only thing you could attach to half a woman that would fit the item listed as a mermaid..ha! This happened on quite a few HOS. Now for the positives. It was a good length story wise, the art was great and very detailed...the characters (all being ghosts) were done extremely well) they did not look like robots like you see in some games). The puzzles were great, but I'm not much of a puzzle person. I did have to use the walkthrough a few times, but I'm not an expert yet. I enjoyed the game as much as a CE. The ending was kind of weird. You had to go quite a distance to get to the train station,,. but to get back to town you only had to step through a window?? Oh well, except for a few glitches the game was still enjoyable and I probably will play it again. I think you would like the game overall.

Another great Hidden Object ADVENTURE Game
I just finished this game, and found it fun and challenging.
The Hidden Object puzzles were a little difficult, but the hint system was good, and allowed repeated use. I also liked the two-step objects. (My only complaint was that sometimes the clicking had to be too precise. I KNEW I found the object, but had to click several times for it to register. The same was true of some of the keys, etc. Sometimes you had be so precise in using it, that I wondered it I even had the right tool! But those are my only mild complaints.) The story line was good, I enjoyed that the game required going back and forth between scenes, revisting some scenes repeatedly. Those who prefer a straightforward game will find this annoying, but I loved it. I also enjoyed the puzzles within the game, and was able to solve most of them - though I was glad that we were permitted to skip games, and I had to do this once or twice. (I wish I could go back and play some of those games by themselves. ) I was also a little annoyed by the cliffhanger suggested at the end of the game, but was so glad to have completed it that I rerally didn't care! All in all it was a very good game, and a lengthy game which provides your money's worth and hours of entertainment.
(If you're like me, just be sure to find a good walkthrough when you get stuck!)

Sometimes frustrating, sometimes clever
A lot of my comments have been made by others already. It was frustrating to not find the exact place for an item and have it jump back to your inventory. A couple of frustrating areas were just my not realizing you can use something twice.
Overall, I was impressed with the length of the game. Not my favorite game, but definitely worth a sale price.

Fun & Challenging
This was an interesting hidden object game. The mini-games were very challenging, and there were a few times I had to refer to the walk-through to solve a perplexing dilemma. All in all, a very good game - great graphics. Also really liked the clever hidden-object games - figuring out how to uncover certain objects is more interesting than just finding the items on a list. Well done!

This is a good game
This does not rank up with my favorites but it was an enjoyable experience. I had some minor technical problems (I got about half way through the game and one of the rooms I had already opened closed and I couldn't get back in so I had to start over).
The story line was not as interesting as some of the other games available on BFG. I played on the lowest level as I am a casual player and I found the game to be just right for me. (I like to skip puzzles!)
The hint button is there if you get stuck which is another bonus that I like.

At first I didnt like it because the HOS were kinda wierd but after you get use to it it was pretty fun. Story line not that great.

Love this developer!!
I love this developer! Their HOPAs are really HOPAs, not just HOGs with a few puzzles. Each HO is only repeated once. City of Fog is the first in the Dark Dimensions series; I personally like the second one, Wax Beauty, better, but this one is great too.
As I said, it is a good mix of HO, adventure and puzzles. It is also very long, it took me several days of several hours a day to finish it. I don't use the hint button.
The atmosphere is eerie, and it is set roughly 100 year ago, so very nice ambience.
There is also a bit of a mystery with this game, trying to figure out whodunnit. That's always nice!
This is a wonderful game from a wonderful developer!
