Curse at Twilight: Thief of Souls
Great If you like HOG's
I can only give a review on the hour demo i played, i will not purchase this game myself, as i am abit over the whole hidden object scenes and finding parts of a key item before i can use it. the graphics were good, but nothing fantastic. I read someone compare it to Dire Grove...unfortunately i can see no comparison. If you are a fan of HOG's then you will probably really enjoy this game. one thing people may find helpful is the ability to brighton the screen, since this is quite a dark game.

could be better
this game is lacking communication when it comes to the mini games it is either guess or skip. i play hog's all the time and have never been so disappointed. the music and so on i can't rate cause i don't listen to it. the graphics are great. to purchase this game to me is a waste of time.

Good game for some but not for everyone
I actual found this game rather annoying. The story line was broken and confusing for starters. You're fighting against this guy name Grim and after having finished the game, I still don't know who he is or why we were fighting him. I have no idea who the people I was talking to were for the most part. There really was no story. It was choppy and pieced together. Almost like they made a bunch of random levels and then said oh lets put all this together and make it a game. The music was going well except for one door you go through, it was the same 10 second song on repeat the whole time which was a complete mood killer for that level. Also its really annoying to find the item you finally need and when you click on it it breaks in down into 5-8 pieces scattered throughout the scene, so I have to find it again. If this is how all their games are I'd rather NEVER play them again as they are not challenging but make me want to flip my computer because it got on my nerves. So no I would not recommend this game.

Too much searching for parts of things
Okay I like the game - good storyline and all that. The map is a nice touch - ONCE you find all the little gold pieces which can be most annoying sometimes. The puzzles in the games are fun to figure out - finding MORE pieces in almost every scene is not. Half good, half bad. You choose if you want to be nit-picked all the time.

Stylish and frozen.
The graphics is nice and well detailed... But many objects are too small.
Intregating intro and atmosphere of a mystic manor.. But not enough motivating what to do next and what for.
A few diferent hidden object game play types, a little bit to evil punishment for clicking.
I feel the game needs more action, it just to frozen.
But the style and graphics are very nice and it is must be interesting to see for everyone, so ...

Wish I Could Like This One...
Based on 30 mins of trial.
From other reviews you know this gameis pretty, sounds good and is not your traditional HOG. But it is also not anything new either. There are plenty of games where, instead of combing through HO scenes, you must comb through your location for teensy weensy unidentifiable bits of stuff you may need, although how and why is not always clear. I mean, collect bits of a gem to light the fire? Gimme a break!
The puzzles I encountered came without any form of instruction even in casual mode. And the very first one Needed instructions, because the note that allegedly provided you with a clue was too obscure for me. And it just kept happening that way for the half hour I tried to like this game.
For those of you who are into pieces of objects, this is probably lovely, though not outstanding in any way, which is why I gave it 2 stars - to compensate for my personal objection to these sort of games.

Not for people with bad eyesight
I've tried this game three times and gave up (not finishing the demo!). I can't comment on the storyline, but I've really hated searching for small particles of things in badly lit rooms. It got a little bit better after adjusting the brightness, but it was still annoying enough to give up the game. I've had some technical problems as well; the cursor wasn't moving smoothly and the loading took ages.

Based on the reviews I read i was expecting something exceptional. What I found was blurry graphics, a poor story line, and a game that was a chore to play. I forced myself to make it through the one hour test period. Then I breathed a sigh of relief and went to find a better game.

Bit of A Flat Game
This game was just flat. Not what I expected at all!
The good thing about this game was the graphics. They were clear, wasn't hard to see the objects, great designs.
The puzzles were good.
The storyline. It was a little boring, and the intro wasn't as good as I'd hoped, but certainly not the worst storyline to ever be created.
Didn't like the Hidden Object Scenes at all. I would've much prefered the traditonal "junkple" scenes.
The game was a real bore, with nothing making me want to play on.
I didn't like the fact that you had to collect coins in the game.
The tutorial made you do everything the way it wanted to, once you clicked "yes" there was no way to stop the tutorial, which really annoyed me once it made me collect coins.
Overall, this game was a real disappointment. I will never recommend it.
