Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room
Mystery HO more suited to newcomers
This really is not a bad game, although as I said, the low challenge level is strictly for beginners. Although not as good as the Woman in White from the same series, it still boasts a very interesting storyline. The graphics and voiceovers are ok and HO's are actually more difficult than mini games, but still entertaining, as you try and solve the mystery of the yellow room.

Couldn't really get into it
It's an older game with static two-dimensional graphics and dialogue that you have to click through, which really slows things down.
I found it pretty straightforward, with very little challenge. In fact, the biggest challenge was getting the cursor on just the right spot to pick things up or get them to work.
The game gives you extremely limited options, so it's fairly easy to figure out what to do next, if you're familiar with these kind of games.
Puzzles are average.
It's worth a shot, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.

But way too short. Liked that the characters actually talked to you, unlike in other games I have played. How do we find out who makes each game so that we can buy ones from the makers that we like? It doesn't say in the description of each game.

Overall this games is abit average.
The last part was a waste of time and didnt have anything to do with the story line that I could make out.
The ending was to sudden and you didnt know what the out come was.
So If they do a next episode they should have a look at how they end it, It seemed as if they ran out of ideas and just gave up.
Read other reviews first and try it before you buy it.

Could do better
For me I feel this game would be too short, I completed the demo in 20 minutes, does seem to have a good mix of HOS and puzzles, but again the puzzles are too easy for someone who regularly plays HO games, would probably suit a beginner

Not very exciting
I was really bored with this game. When I clicked on HOs I found it necessary to click more than once...the game was just too slow.

Just OK. Wait for a sale
The demo took me 27 minutes. That is really short.
Graphics are nice, but nothing special.
Most objects were period appropriate, which I like, but some were quiet small and difficult to see.
Scene changes are a rather slow (on Win7 w. quad core & 6G RAM)
No hints when not in HOS, so if you can't figure out what to do, you are out of luck.

The SKIPs should be shorter for the mini games

sound track is irritating. Puzzles are easy. Animation is bothersome.

Will just play the preview
I found it was ok but many of the objects in the HO really very small. Thought it was a beginners game in the scheme of things. Would not spend the $ to buy as hoping better games are coming.
