A good game..with a few confusing bits.
Overall this game was a good game,but it left me with so many questions at the end!!! I hate when that happens... I felt the game was a lot shorter than the other Shiver as well. Great graphics!

SE is great, but get CE for complete ending
This is an excellent HOS game, one of the best I've played in a long time. The graphics and music create a deliciously scary atmosphere and the puzzles are complex enough to offer a good challenge without blocking game play. There were numerous times when my inventory was very full and lots of different paths to take through the game. Large playing area, but no map, which was ok for me, but some might find it confusing. Really liked the hint system, which mostly just gave travel directions and didn't ruin puzzles by being excessively helpful. Nice long game play, good number of cut scenes, nicely fleshed-out storyline.
Overall, the SE is a solid game and the ending concludes the main story, but there are questions left unanswered that set up for the bonus chapter in the CE. If I could buy this game again, I'd definitely upgrade to the CE - this one's worth it!

Shivering Wet HOG
What a great Daily Deal deal ! I do like a pleasant surprise with my game purchases. I played this game in intermediate mode. I do love a nice, creepy mansion and grounds to explore with a dark, stormy night background. Excellent graphics and puzzles. I only used the hint button a couple of times. I wouldn't recommend this for younger children. Enjoyed my romp around the island.

I like it!!!
Yep, Shiver definitely gets the job done! Great puzzles, not too many HOG's, good adventure, and I even liked the storyline! I will definitely want to play this again. Well worth the DD price!

better than the poltergeist hitchhiker game
i really liked this game. i bought it because i liked the hitchhiker game and liked this one even more. the hint and skip buttons charge fairly fast and there aren't a lot of puzzles to solve and those are not too bad. there is a journal to help you and the hint system pretty much walks you through it. i got confused a time or two but finally figured it out. the graphics are pretty clean and clear and not too crowded. if you liked the first one you should like this one more. i can't give a rating on the sound because i didn't use it much.

A very enjoyable game, just the right balance of adventure, hidden objects & puzzles to make it entertaining. I did get a little confused with the story pages as you progressed, fortunately it did not have a negative effect on the overall game.

Wow! Glad I bought it!
I had tried this game as the CE version and didn't know if I really liked it. With the sale going on this weekend, and the in-depth reviews from the other reviewers, I thought I'd try the SE version and give it another chance. Boy, everyone was right. This is an excellent game! A nice gray, dark theme and the perfect game for a chilly Saturday afternoon. The ratio of puzzles to HOS was excellent. Too many games are relying on 70% HOS, which has become a bit boring and "done that". Game seemed nice and long, the scenes tied into each other and made sense, and the game really kept my interest. This is a must have for your collection!

Awesome Game, Lots of fun! Don't need Strategy Guide!!!
I loved this game. You DO NOT need the Strategy Guide at all!! The hint tells you where to go and what to do next. When you get the Camera and it sways back and forth, TAKE A PICTURE!! USE YOUR JOURNEL!! It will help you a lot!! This game is so EASY but not too easy!! It is just the right amount of fun and and enough of a challenge to keep you going and thinking, "Hey this game is fun"!! I LOVED IT!! The graphics, dialog, Scenery were great!! Worth the purchase!! I play A LOT of games and this one is in my top 10 Favorites!! Highly Recommend!! Hope this review helps!!

One twist after another!
I love the challenge of this game. At times it was really hard to figure out what to do next and I loved that. I played the most challenging level. This game has everything you look for. Good story, great graphics & sound. Loved the flashes of scenes brought on by the ghost. Lot's of interactive fun in this one. For those that don't like going back & forth to complete a task, what can I say, you may not like it. Personally I think it adds to the challenge & forces you to think outside the box at times. Loved the parts where you had to use objects in an other than obvious way. This is a must buy!
