Shiver: Poltergeist Collector's Edition
Ho hum. Lovely graphics, as always from this creator, but other than that I could barely make myself finish the demo. walking back and forth, back and forth - I found myself just using hint (which refills quickly) for every step out of boredom. HOS objects senseless and less than clear. Tiny twist of inventory items that need additional objects added, otherwise the entire thing is a patchwork from every other collector's edition you've ever seen; same old, same old...sigh.

Not that great
Shiver: The Vanishing Hitchhiker was a pretty good game. This one, not so much. The soundtrack gets very repetitive and boring rather quickly, the tasks don't follow in any kind of logical manner (I was combining objects with no idea as to their purpose), the puzzles are too few and way too easy, the game in general is not very challenging at all and the story is not exactly gripping, at least not the way it's told. Very disappointing.

FRUSTRATING BEYOND BELIEF
This game commits the cardinal sin, in my opinion. It jumps you all over the place until you have no idea where you are or where you need to go. Instructions like the following in the included Strategy Guide are a prime example: "Back out five (5) times then go right and down the hatch." No matter how good everything else in the game is, these tactics take all the fun and enjoyment out of it. I used the hint button continuously to get me to the next active location. Perhaps if the game came with a map where you could quickly go to the next location, then it would be better. The only reason this game is so long is because you spend 3 times the time going from place to place as you do actually playing any HOS or puzzles. And the included strategy guide was basically useless, at least for the bonus play chapter, where I used it the most.
