Brink of Consciousness: Dorian Gray Syndrome
A LOT of backtracking!! This game is very repetitive, as far as game play. The radio puzzle was cool, but that doesn't make a good game overall. No wonder the dude searching for things is always coughing, because of the backtracking LOL.

Going back and forth!
Great idea, nice visual and sound, BUT way too much going back and forth. When you're quite far ahead in the game, you find an object that you have to go back to one of the first rooms with, and that just keeps happening! I spent roughly 60 % game time going - quite far - between rooms because you didn't find the necessary item for room 3 before room 12 etc. That's really irritating!

Gorgeous art, fun to play... but an interactive map would have been helpful with all the backtracking.
Worst of all, though, is the total letdown at the end. I can see including a special chapter in the Collector's Edition, but please give the Standard Edition a satisfying ending!
No more games for me from this producer, despite the beautiful graphics.

Do not irritate your customers
It was OK up to a point. Grim, ugly settings - to go with the storyline. Puzze level OK, not much backtracking wichich is good)
Until I got to the point that I had to use the double hook to connect two ends. I spent five minutes clicking the mouse and trying to hold it steady. It kept escaping. There was no way to think it thrugh, no way to skip. It was just an exercise of frustration, just to see how good our muscular cntrol is.
I HATE when deelopers do that. They should by now understand taht not all gamers have precison muscle control. It was as if they were mocking me for not having exercised my wrists hard enough.
Well, They can mock me as theywish. I wiill never buy any other game from Brink of Consciousness ever again.
HAVE SOME RESPECT FOR YOUR CUSTOMERS!

Am I The Only One?
I must be the only one who didn't like this game. Oscar's voice downright annoying and having to "click down" 10 times at one point - are you kidding? I was not able to play it all in one go and it was easy to lose track of where I was coming back to it after a couple days. Compared to other
similiar games, it seemed way too short. (I did play the
demo and was looking forward to the full game but only found it disappointing).

Disappointing at best
This game was dull and uninteresting. Very few hidden object scenes and not very challenging puzzles. Rather redundant in how to solve each step. Don't waste your money or credits on this one.

Loved It, Right Till the End... of which there was NONE
I thought this was one of the best-made games I'd ever played. I spent the entire game on the edge of my seat, and was thrilled with every puzzle. I played through the whole game in ONE day, because I was so engrossed, and found the storyline creepy and incredibly engaging.
Then, I got to the end. Such as there was. I refuse to post spoilers, but I will tell you this: I feel REALLY cheated! The game didn't have an ending, then promised the ending in the collector's edition, which I think is a total rip-off. As good as it was, I'd say don't waste your money,unless you want to be frustrated.
