Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room
This could have been a fairly good although be it short game if it were not for the tecnical difficulties in the game. Such as you need to read what the people were saying for the clues and it would flash them for about 1 sec and could not recal what was said. ENDing was BAD BAD BAD. would not waste my game credits on another like this one.

beat the demo in 20minutes
pretty much enough said. this game is a no brainer, there are no challenges. after playing other games, you learn what to look for and this game i would suggest to beginners only.

Tried the test version. anytime I can finish the trial in 29 minutes without skipping a puzzle scares me...

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(

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.

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.
