9: The Dark Side
Good Idea not Worked Out Very Well
Here someone had a very good idea but not the knowledge to implement it. It's a nice and interesting story - different for a change - but it's drawn simpler and with less detail than most of the really good adventure/HO-Games. The same with the "story-plot" - you can get through the whole game quite quickly, because it's very obvious. No big challenge. All in all it seems to have been done a bit loveless and careless. Good idea, but not the engergy behind it to make a really great game out of it.
Technically: It runs without the slightest problems. Although it seems to "save" your recent game progress any time you quit it nonetheless doesn't have any problems with restoring your actual stage of the game even when you just found out that your son has used the power cable for your laptop and hasn't plugged it back in again before you started your computer ... If a game survives even that it's well thought through on the technical side. What a pity that they didn't put the same amount of thought into the drawings and the atmosphere.

Runs me around
It did run me around a little to much. But I guess that is the way the games are headed.
The games were to hard for the most part, or it might be that I was trying to get the game over so I could start on another one. Of course there was a few very easy ones also. I guess I would say it was a average to better game.

Good game, bad storyline
I liked the puzzles and graphics. storyline was too abstract and made no sense.

impressed. It was fun, but not great. I don't think I even finished it.

Not as good as the competition
I thought this one was going to be really good. It was average at best in my personal opinion. The story just didn't interst me that much. Although, the way the story was presented was great. Graphics, artworks, animations, it was all relly nice. Didn't seem to be that many hidden object scenes. The puzzles were challenging and clever, not too dificult. I guess I just had higher expectations going into this one and its just average to me.

While I don't particularly REGRET playing the game, it certainly doesn't rank on my top favorite games. It was just... mediocre.

Thought it would be fun. Too dark. Strange.

NOT A FAN
Played the demo for only 5 minutes and I find the graphics bad. I really would like the game but just can not see the items listed. I will not buy this one for that reason. Too bad.

Not my7 cup of tea!
Every review I have read says what a fantastic game this is but I have to say, I actually deleted it before I completed it. I found myself desparately trying to find something else to do other than play it, so what was the point.
Ok, so why didn't I like it? The strange thing is I can't really put my finger on a specific reason. I found the puzzles way too hard (but then maybe I'm just thick!), I just found that the instructions were confusing or just too basic. I also didn't like the fact there was no map.
I'm not a novice to games by any means, think I have now played around 500 different ones but I am sorry to say this one did not grab me at all. Sorry to be so vague as to the reasons but if you're an avid gamer like me, then you'll know, it's right or it just isn't!!
