Ghost Encounters: Deadwood
This was not the worst game I've played , but a stretch from the best. The graphics were this games saving grace. The characters were likeable and believable, The mission of the game was not a difficult task, and yet some items were not as easy to find and a lot of traveling between scenes to get what you need to proceed. The HO's were easy enough, I did find the game somewhat tedious and boring at times. Not sure if this game fits everyone. All I can say is you just have to use your judgement on selecting this game for your library of games.

Yet again another typical ghost story with that ever so well known curse. The game itself is ok......just to pass the time away but thats it. The HOS were pretty clear but i felt sometimes a bit too cluttered. The mini games were ok, but they were mostly jigsaw ones and didnt pose much of a challenge to the well seasoned gamer. The story line is like as i pointed out at the beginning.....your typical ghost story.

You've done better than this
Although I somewhat enjoyed this game, I didn't find it nearly as interesting, challenging, or graphically exciting as games such as 9:The Dark Side, Awakening: Moonfell Wood, and other games like these I have played.

The storyline was cute, a little boy who wants to be the sheriff and save the day. The music became annoying though it had set the right tone for the storyline with the ghosts and saving the boy, Billy. The objects in the hos were easily found and the mini games were typical and uncomplicated. I didn't like not having a map (especially when I started and had to stop) and the hint button was only available in the hos. Got kinda bored and didn't finish demo. Definitely a good game for a beginning hos fan.

For beginners only!
Really dissapointed because game had alot of potential just; perfect for beginners of HOPA games. A Western ghost story where you haveto track down a serial killer in a deserted town and save the boy. I liked the graphics and sound effects although I recommend you turn off your custom curser and adjust the eye candy to low for faster gameplay. Good Voice-Overs, better than some SEs that I have played and two game modes. HOG scenes are srisp and non interactive, easy to find items which are placed in your inventory. Mini-games are easy and some did have a certain degree of fun factor. Actually I liked playing the demo however5 the game lacks any sort of challenge for me. I expect that if you are new to the HOPA genre, this would be a very good game to own. I think it is well worth a credit and who knows, if I have nothing to do tonight, I might just splurge on it to see what will happen to bad dude in town. Cheers and have a good week-end.

Ghost Encounters DULLwood.
My bad I guess for not trying the demo first - I actually had hopes it would be based in some form @ the Deadwood series.
The graphics, voice-overs & game play are smooth and high quality. The puzzles were far too simple and so I found the game overall exceptionally unchallenging and items gained after HOS are used almost immediately.This game should be targeted to first-time players.
Sorry ... I just found this as dull to the point of tedium.

Didn't I already buy this?
This game was so typical that I kept wondering if I had already bought it. I played the full demo and I will purchase it because I have nothing better to do today and it has some things going for it.
The graphics are crisp and 'cartoonish" ...in a good way. The story is engaging. The developers were smart enough to have characters speak, saving us a lot of reading. This game will not blow you away but I think it's worth the price.

Visuals were great, not concerned with sound. Overall wasn't very intuitive

somewhere in between..
after reading a few of the other reviews, i find myself somewhere in beween.
its a good game, (not great by far) only cuz the "cowboy theme" is a bit different.
other than that...meh...but i suppose its worth the demo anyway.

i've only played the demo so far, but it seems like a good game. probably wouldn't pay for this game, but i will use a free game code to get it. something to pass the time and have some fun.
