9: The Dark Side
interesting challenging & good length
This is a very interesting and challenging game as the puzzles are sometimes difficult and need walkthrough to solve but all in all a great game
graphics are good and clear the hidden objects are not to difficult to find
You need to travel back and forward in scenes to complete but this did not distract from pleasure of game
well worth the credit I have played it twice and found you have some different objects too find when played again
which is good I found it sometimes a benifit if I wrote down the clues as the diary does not always have all the details but it gives you the objectives you need to get through the game
Hope there is going to be some more by this producer in this vein.

Maybe it was a difficult game for me...
The story is like one of fantasy role playing games.
Adventure part is good but I prefer exploring normal houses or buildings to castles. But it's just a matter of taste.
Hidden object scenes are avarage, but it's fun because the graphics is good.
Some puzzles are easy but others are really hard or the types I'm not good at. Some of them are really time consuming and after about 20 minutes trying I skipped them. I think I skipped about half of the puzzles.

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 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.

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.

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!!
