Death Under Tuscan Skies: A Dana Knightstone Novel
Pretty but no substance
It is a beautiful game and the voice acting was done well but the game was lacking.
Mind you I only played the demo.
The mini games were way too easy. In fact there was no challenge anywhere in this game.
The plot also seemed to be typical and predictable.
If you want something pretty this is your game if you want a challenge skip it.

Far too easy to offer any challenges
This game has far too few challenges for an experienced gamer. Some of the minigames one has to solve before going on is suitable for preschool children, and some of them were in theory solved only seconds after beginning the game. Nice graphics, nice music and an overall atmosphere of laidback semi-fun prevents me from knocking off one more star. I look forward to more games that is not based on the "hidden object" theme, like the remade "Broken Sword" or hopefulle the remaking of some of the old Sierra-games.

Not worth any money....
This game is not worth any money. Not sure if I'd play it even it if was free. Boring story line. Uninspiring scenery and music. Mini-puzzles with directions that are so uninformative I skipped many because it was completely unclear what the heck you were supposed to be doing or solving. The story was disjointed and the objects required to complete certain tasks were illogical and completely counterintuitive - it made no sense that you were supposed to use certain object for certain tasks. Completely lame. I enjoy challenging games and mini-puzzles if they are done well, have clear sequences and instructions and inspire you to find out what's in the next scene or next task. Glad I got it for free otherwise I would have been even more annoyed had I paid for it. I didn't even finish the game - wasn't worth it.

while the graphics are good the rest of the game play is dissapointing.the puzzles are way to easy, and the cursor is not accurate enough when using it on items and pzzles,and means constantly clicking on the same part til the required action is achieved.,which is annoying,frustrating and time consuming.ive quit this game and deleted it half way through chapter 4 as the game froze and wouldnt let me back to another area to continue the game...im just glad i used a game club credit and not payed cash!

Really Bad Game
The game didn't respond well at all, with the cursor hanging constantly. And when I got into mini games, there were no instructions. I'd get a few steps into it, like putting the figurines that I found onto the table and then waiting, used up hints, waited some more. I couldn't find clues. Off on wild goose chases. Couldn't find how to get the electric circuitry into the left half of the library - that's when I gave up. Twenty-five minutes of hit and miss. I guess if I had used a game guide or walkthrough, could've gotten it. But it wasn't fun, just tedious. And again, the skipping cursor (I wasn't online looking for software updates or doing my weekly scan either).
