Abandoned: Chestnut Lodge Asylum
Broken and lazy
Do not BUY!
The game is very terrible, while the opening cutscene had me interested, I immediately wanted to throw the game out of the window when I saw the boy, with poor animation and voice acting. Same with a cop you encounter later on.
The guide itself misses out on several key items, with it even incorrectly stating in one puzzle a dial should be to the right, when it should be left, (the puzzle in question had me cursing quite colourfully at the screen when I had done as I was meant to but wouldn't complete.)
The HOS lists are sometimes poorly translated, making it very annoying at times to complete.
While the plot is good at first and kept up by finding skeletons, it loses momentum after a while, making you wonder why you are still playing this game or most importantly why your character still thinks it's a good idea to carry on, even though they are finding alot of bodies and not call the police.

Possible to stuck forever!
I played a great number of Big Fish Games and I like BF games much, but this one is a real garbage:
1. They designed it to be not linear, and due to this "brilliant" idea it is possible to completely stuck, so you'll need to start over: example - can't find glass? here you are.
2. How come tile puzzle (with 11 tiles above bed) was preset in IMPOSSIBLE position? Impossible means it is preset in such way that you have no chance to solve it. So when you place 9 tiles in correct order, 2 rest will always be in reversed wrong order. If you think it is possible to resolve in such position plz, send me your explanation. being child I played tiles game a lot, so I know what I'm talking about!
Disappointed! Will reconsider buying from this company.

Another dark hidden object game. Spelling on HOG very poor. Why do we have to have games with morbid settings.
