9: The Dark Side Collector's Edition
Ok, just finished playing the demo, I had to purchase it right after, especially at the special price of 6.99 this is a steal! It had me hooked about 10 minutes into playing. Graphics are great, artwork is wonderful. So far, not so much into the storyline but like I said I have only played the demo. I am looking forward into playing the rest of the game. I love these types of games!

Absolutely worth the money!
I loved this game! The puzzles were challenging for me, I liked the fact that the HOs graphics were well done and not smudgy, and I enjoyed the story line and voice-overs. All around good game, and plenty of play time.

I really enjoyed playing this game. The graphics were really nice I thought. I'm not good at puzzles so I had to skip quite a few of them even though there weren't that many. I had the sound off most of the time so can't say if it was irritating or not. The hint recharged in a decent amount of time, about a minute. I just thought that the ending could have been more spectacular. I was expecting something and did not get it. It was kind of abrupt and I didn't seem to get closure to the game. I mean the goal was accomplished but what I expected to see after I accomplished the goal was what I didn't receive. It was like the developers ran out of time so had to do something quick. Such a shame. But all in all very enjoyable play time. I thought it was a good length and the back and forth you have to do made sense and also the hint button really told you what you needed to do.

Challenging yet AWESOME game!
This game is one of the best we have played in a long time!
You really have to think on some of the puzzles & mini games. Although, there is a skip option.
The graphics are great and the cut scenes get you caught up in the story right away.
There are many achievements to acquire. Those are always a fun addition to any game.
The voice overs were ok, but a bit slow.
There is a "jewel" in the game that lights up and reacts to glyphs needed in the game. That was a clever unusual idea.
This game will give many hours of entertainment and we give it a rare 5 star rating.

If you like challenging puzzles, this is the game for you
This game has it all: beautiful graphics, gorgeous locations set in a derelict castle, great soundtrack and ambient sound effects, compelling story, some genuinely scary/eerie moments with demonic spirits, great, challenging puzzles, achievements and great game length.
My favourite part of the game was the challenging puzzles, the most difficult ones I've come across in the HOG genre. I wanted to get the achievement for not using any hints or skips and probably got a good 8 or so hours of gameplay for the main game (not including bonus content), which is over twice as long as a typical HOG for me.
I like the way they integrated the bonus content into the game. They added some new locations and connected them to locations from the main game. And there were lots more excellent puzzles!

9 Is a great change of pace
Loved the game. Great that has voice. The puzzles were challanging and I liked that. The HOG's were a bit simple, but the story line made up for it. The Extra gameplay could have been a bit longer and more challenging. Keep up the good work!

Just one darn good game
I really enjoyed playing this game. Very good graphics and enjoyable story. The HOS were quite challenging but not impossible. My only objection was, and the only reason I didn't give it full marks for "Fun Factor" was I spent too much just trying to figure out where to go next. But, I realize that this is probably a personal thing, and maybe others won't find it that much of a problem. I definitely recommend this game.
