Resurrection, New Mexico
I liked this game. It kept me interested throughout. HOG's had at least one or two items that were a challenge but not impossible.
Mainly this had an interesting storyline and a good cross between nasty and nice characters. It made me want to finish the game to help the main character achieve her goal.
I had to use hints once or twice as it wasn't clear what to do next. The hint button was useful but didn't give away too much.
A good solid Adventure/HOG that's not too easy and not too hard.

I See Dead People!
This was a very entertaining game. I enjoy having to navigate all over the locations, and this game has great locations. There are many obstacles to remember as play goes on. It is fairly long - I am going to buy the CE. If you have arachnophobia - watch out! I am always happy when the dialogue isn't audible! The music is good, the graphics are wonderful. I think it's hysterical what the last talisman is! How 21st century!

Though you don't have to be a mom to have your heart strings pulled in this game, my heart definitely was in this. Great ending. The only critique I have is when you get a hint, it tells you two different places to go, when you should choose one over the other to get to the other option successfully. This onlly makes sense when you are playing the game. Great job!

Not too difficult, but kept my interest
This was an enjoyable game. The HO scenes were pretty easy (even when the graphics weren't the best#, as were the puzzles. Mostly holding on to lots of items until they could be used. But the Story journal told you what needed to be done in each area. Even though this wasn't much of a challenge #and rather short), the storyline was compelling and I liked the game a lot. The ending WAS a bit abrupt but certainly not as bad as many. All in all, a pretty good game.

Excellent - Highly recommended
This game was fantastic. The sound and art was very good. It was sufficiently difficult, meaning it wasnt too easy and it wasnt unplayable. The story and gameplay were very well connected and it made me feel like I had to be on my toes the whole time. The puzzles/minigames were interesting too. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable game. :)

I really enjoy this game. graphics are good and level of challenge is pretty good. The one thing I don't like is breaking my neck and straining my eyes to find the hos items. Don't get me wrong I know the point is to search but the producers should keep in mind that there are some people that enjoy these games that have eye and neck problems.

A fun HOG with an interesting story
I enjoyed playing this game, but just wish it were longer. It balances a good story with fun mini-puzzles and challenging HOG scenes. It would have been good to have better color graphics, which would have helped me from using the HINT button to find objects. As it is, the HINT button is also needed to make the game navigation faster, but I enjoyed the challenges of solving game puzzles.

Magnificent and Creepy
Magnificent and creepy. Objects to find were cleverly hidden, some objects were hard to find, game was to dark. Mini games were good. Slow to start but once I got into it was not easy to stop. Great game.

Interesting game play
You must go to many places to complete enough one scene. The HOGs are okay but some are well hidden and small. However the hint button replenishes quickly.
I played the one hour but really didn't get the feel of the game. It might just be a buy at the sale prices.

There are a lot of things I liked about this game like the music really fit the atmosphere, the story line immersed me, the characters were intriguing in their own way. The hidden object scenes were clear enough for me to see all the items although I did use a hint at the end of everyone of them just to move on. The things I didn't like about this game was the abrupt ending. Im assuming the real ending was in the CE so you get this abrupt, oh ok ending instead of telling how this woman got to this place and what happened to her blah blah. I would have liked a more solid ending. The reason I found myself using the hint button a lot in the hidden object scenes was because there were SOO MANY of them. Yes its the hidden object genre but every corner Id turn there would be 2 sets of flashing lights so two hidden object scenes per area and thats just a little too much.
I think I would have enjoyed this game more if it had a difficulty option. I hated the glints everywhere basically hand holding me throughout the whole game when the game was pretty simple. I only got stuck once and the hint button tells you what to do. Whats weird is, the guy on the game display isn't really in the story that much. Its surprising to me, the sheriff didn't get put on the display cover as he appeared everywhere trying to thwart your plans. Id like to know exactly what his plans were for the town or what he was doing to begin with but like I said you don't get much of an ending in the SE version. Good thing I bought this on sale.
I recommend this game but only if its a sale or dd. It only took me 3.5 hours to complete give or take and the only reason it took that long is because of all the hidden object scenes.
