Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room
This is a waste of time, even for the one-hour trial. Very strangely laid out, too controlling of the direction it wants you to go in, and not intuitive in the least. Plus no help of any kind except with the hidden object scenes.

Nothing too exciting here. Quit 10 minutes in because this game had nothing new or challenging. It took no thinking to beat the first couple of puzzles so I quit. I prefer a game that makes me think!

No Hint , No Buy
Not that I use it much, but when I need it, I like a hint button to tell me what to do next or where to go. I might have purchased it but I did buy one before with no hint and it was not too much fun. The graphics are good, the french accents are a little hokey, but the voice overs do make it interesting. As I did wander the hall for a while, and had no place to look (and I did scour the train car and hall), decided not to buy.

Not for me.
I love HOG's but this one was not very fun for me. I don't care for all the mini games. Probably because I have no patience and to hard. The skip button takes way to long to fill. Lots of running back and forth trying to figure out what to do next. There is no hint button to help you figure it out. I wouldn't buy this game.

All I can say is that I'm glad I used one of my 'freebies' to get this game with. Well, actually....I'm NOT glad 'cause now I WASTED a freebie for nothing but a painful experience. I was soooooo looking forward to the end. Yes, I did finish it, only because I kept hoping it would get better but, big sigh, it didn't!! Judge for yourself if ya don't believe me. But please, waste a 'free game', don't pay for it....it's not worth it, really!! :o(

I Can't Believe I Bought This "Twice"!
I thoroughly hated this game! What is even worse, I found I had purchased the game before. How dumb can one be?
Anyway, from the getgo, I found myelf going in circles trying to find things. Trying like a maniac, not succeding very well.
After an hour, I quit.
I will say the graphics were clear and crisp, but characters so wooden I think I could see the woodcraving marks.
I never use sound, so I can't speak on that.

I have to say that the reviews (stars) are usually dead on, but this time they were way off. This was a very boring game. Some of the puzzles (that had the skip feature) were so lame i didnt even want to do them and it took forever for the "skip" to activate. The HOS was hard to see and some of the stuff was so tiny i would have only found it with the hint button. I can usually rate most of the games that i buy as a four or five star...this unfortunately was not. Thank goodness it was a freebie.

Worst Game I ever played
This is the worst game I ever bought and played on Big Fish. The hidden object scenes were fuzzy. The whole story made absolutely no sense. The French accents were ridiculous. The puzzles were so easy my dog could solve them. I couldn't follow who was who with the characters. Things happened that had no explanation, but, the game was still so predictable I flew through it in a couple hours.

WHERE'S THE HINTS IN VICTORIAN MYSTERIES THE YELLOW ROOM????
I played a total of 15 minutes before uninstalling this game. Not only was it very,very boring but it went nowhere extremely fast! I was shocked to discover after a few minutes that there were NO HINTS IN THIS GAME! In the Hidden Object portions..yes, puzzles..yes The rest of the game NO!!!!!! It leaves you hanging after only a few minutes with only two directions in which to go neither of which render you a clue in heaven as to where to go next.
This is NOT a game I would RECOMMEND for the avid HOG fan. It falls quite short of the mark as far as being a challenge and the graphics really aren't even worth mentioning. The music was good. It was soothing,classical music which provided a pleasant respite from the grandbabies caterwauling,lol. As I stated previously, this is NOT a game I would recommend and would NEVER PURCHASE it.
