Return from the crusades, enter the dark side This is from "Play Favorite Games". I guess they are a new group as I do not remember playing any of their games. If 9: The Dark Side is their first game, I look forward to the future games! I played the demo until time was up. The graphics are excellent. I noticed an option to change language, which was nice, except the only option atm is english. (?). The music was repetitive, I usually turn off music, but every now and then you would hear a dark voice chuckling in a sinister way. Made me laugh. 3 different modes of play, I chose advanced and it seemed just right for me, right in the middle. The voice overs are nice sounding, but I thought too slow. They could have read in a normal pace. The HO scence were just the right difficulty for me, never had to use a hint. Some of the puzzles were a change from the usual ones in other games. I only skipped one, it started to frustrate me, something I do not like in a game. (I like a challenge but not frustration). I plan to buy this as soon as I am done with this review. Good job Play Favorite Games and thanks again BFG for bringing another great game! Happy gaming fishies! December 4, 2011
Outstanding ! A game that catch you right from the start! Cutscenes are great, and continue to be all over the game. Not too challenging ... but good level of difficult. But not only the challenge is important to make a good game ... the quality of graphics and sound, amazing voice over, immersive Atmosphere, locations very well done, excellent HOS and mini games, (some may require good skill), make this game a super entertainment, fun and unforgettable February 1, 2012
9: The Dark Side is Flawless! ** Demo only ** Similarities to Hallowed Legends Templar - which I also give 5 stars. Great graphics, voice-acting and cut-scenes. Challenging puzzles and good HO scenes. Gem feature to highlight glyphs on walls is another nice activity. Lots of achievements to attain. Three levels of difficulty. Built-in strategy guide that holds your place. Since I haven't played the entire game, I can't comment on length, but the demo/strategy guide indicates a decent length. The only con so far is that since it does have similar storyline to Templar, this story is not new. December 4, 2011
Exquisite and Challenging HO Game! What a wonderful surprise to discover this game on a Sunday night. Never sure what to expect from new names in the Pond, so I was floored when I started playing. The artwork is beautiful: very detailed, lovely, and realistic. The colors seem particularly vivid and bright. The game is generously lengthy, with very long chapters and several sites we must revisit throughout the game. As other reviewers have noted, the game offers three levels of play: easy, challenging, and hardcore (no hints, no skips). I like to be challenged as much as possible, but admittedly, I appreciate the option of a Skip in case a puzzle just hangs me up too long. The HO scenes are beautifully rendered, with some objects requiring a little more imagination to uncover. I haven't heard of this company before, but I certainly hope they have more up their sleeves. This game gives you plenty opportunities to use your noggin to figure out what to do next. Along with the normal types of puzzles, they have a few unique and satisfying new puzzles. The actors are very talented, each with a distinctive personality and accent. It feels that lots of thought has gone into every aspect of this game. Very imaginative musical soundtrack, and the sound effects actually made me jump a couple of times! Well, I did have it turned up pretty loud, but all the EFX are very realistic. I recommend this game highly and will be on the lookout for more from this group of artists. December 6, 2011
A festival of puzzles I see I am not the only one being hooked up upon completion of the trial version. This one is a definite buy for me too. I agree the voice-overs sound a bit weird giving the impression the text is being read too cautiously, hence a lack of natural flow, and the repetitive music becomes rapidly tedious. But these are mere trivia largely made up for by everything else in the game: well crafted graphics, not that many locales but all of them splendidly rendered, neat HOS's with objects not too difficult to find, a generous hint system, objectives clearly stated, a decent stroyline, a mildly eerie atmosphere and, of course, the traditional useful-object-hunt. But the application of these utilities seems to always respond to logic, at least in the demo. With five chapters, three game modes, lots of awards to earn, and a good level of challenge, gameplay is bound to be fairly long provided one doesn't sneak peek into the SG too often. But that's not all ! What about the puzzles/minigames then ? As my title suggests, there is a multitude of them, of all kinds, classics or innovations, random or logical, easy or...not so easy. The less seasoned players among us will be happy to find that all the puzzles in this game can be reset and are skippable. Patience is often the key to the solution, anyway. I particularly appreciated the fact that the CE's demo gives you access to the entire SG and all the extras, thus providing all the information we need prior to a purchase to determine why we should buy the CE rather than the SE. In this case I have chosen the CE because a# I think the game is worth it, b) the bonus chapter offers a better conclusion and c) I have a weakness..... I love parking lot type slider puzzles #available only in the bonus chapter). "Play Favorite Games" did very well indeed for a first-timer and I gladly give them a 4.5 star rating (rounded up to 5).

Reporting That the Dark Side has Been Defeated? A game that kept one involved with the goal of the story to defeat the Dark Side. This is a challenging play. Most puzzles were difficult and those who enjoy working out solutions will be in HOG heaven. The music I found relevant, the art work was stunning. The creative team is to be congratulated, Interdicting game achievements was a great idea. The game, for me, revealed no gaming problems (bugs) so I would like to thank the programmers and the QA team. Good job. The Hints are more than adequate making the Strategy Guide less important, in fact with persistence the game is playable with out consulting the SG. Thanks to all for bringing us this most entertaining game play. December 7, 2011
Stand-out game of 2011 (Subjective!) If you're not too fond of HOS kept to a minimum here) but enjoy puzzles and exploration/adventure, this is the best game since Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison (IMO stand-out game 2010). Apparently new devs but excellent game. This game also has an appreciable bonus play content; by that point every bit of extra time is very welcome. Enjoy and look forward to more games from this source. December 13, 2011
Awesome Challange This is the type of games I love playing it had the normal HO game but also the parts finding game and the shadow finding game along with all the mini games. but even before you did the finding you had to find the tarot cards to see which type of search you were going to do. I also agree with some of the other reviews that the music was a little boring but it was nice with the little bit of voice overtones like a ghost was talking to you. December 5, 2011
This is EXACTLY what I've been waiting for! I....LOVED...THIS...GAME! 9: The Dark Side CE is the most skillfully designed game I have played since being hooked by Big Fish. Where to begin: Graphics - superb, HOG's - just the right amount without hitting "HOG Overload", Mini-games - absolute brain-torture delight & of course there are all of the elements to make this a CE game: Long, satisfying Bonus Play, Challenge Level options, Smooth voice-overs, Strategy Guide (if needed!) & even a choice of language. PLEASE MAKE MORE GAMES LIKE THIS! I didn't want the adventure to end... December 11, 2011
Strategy Guide Overhaul Game was excellent for graphics and color. Story line was excellent. Just might buy game later after holidays. Christmas presents to mail out and a birthday this month (great grandson) and a birthday next month (grand daughter) and an anniversary( daughter- 18 years). It was hard in some spots and cursor froze. ( can't post in forums anymore). The game was spell binding and captivating. Everyone should try it. On some occasions built in guide became handy but guide needs some improvement. Sound was great and I loved the music at a lower volume. I recommend all should try the game out before purchasing. It definately needs more time for trial period as some of the puzzles were hare to figure out. Good luck and happy game playing fishies. December 4, 2011
