Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room
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.

A terrible game
This game is terrible, which, in my opinion, is such a rarity for Hidden Object Games. Here are my thoughts: (based on Casual Mode)
Classic whodunit case
Option of a tutorial, but sometimes it was no help
The hint took forever to recharge
Terrible French Accents
Objects were really hard to find
Lack of interest. I quit 9 minutes in t the demo. (yes, believer it or not, 9 minutes)
Overall, this is the worst game I have ever played. If I didn't love hidden object games, I wouldn't play another one.

This is awful
So much time spent looking for things. The killer for me was the 5 (yes, five) minute wait for the hint button to activate. What? am I being punished for playing this game? The graphics are amateur and the anticipation level is zero.

The worst game I've played so far
The main thing is all there accents through out the game you can barely understand them. Making the whole story line useless. I didn't understand any of it. The clock games where way to hard and the skip option took forever. I was bored the whole way through.

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.

Save your money!
I really enjoyed the free hour of game play and based on other reviews purchased this game. It is horrible! Save your money! Only if you are a rank beginner who has to have a lot of hand-holding should you even slightly consider purchasing this game. It is really short, offers no challenge and is a total waste of time.

Complicated and Slow
This game is hard even on the casual/beginner play! It loads very slow and when you're stuck/confused there isn't a hint or clue button. I finally gave up and just quit. Don't waste your time if you're playing for enjoyment!
