Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room
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.

victorian mysteries the yellow room
I was quite enjoying the game but gave up after trying to find the other two spark plugs. I would like to buy the game but was at a standstill with the car. Can't go any further. The others that have good reviews for this game must be a lot smarter than me.

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.

beginners view fun at first
I am a beginner at games and needed the walk through help. Fun at first them I really needed the walk through to leave a room go some where return to room, seems like too many returns which I would have hot thought of it I did not have the guide. Most puzzles I could do but several I needed the help and sever the helps did not seem to work for me. Maybe if you are an expert you would know what to do next. Of course I found that I never followed the walk through in order. I move through where I wanted to go.
