Theatre of the Absurd
Some big problems with this game
This game has some flaws commented on by others, but I guess they bothered me more. Cutscenes couldn't be speeded up. I usually read faster than the voice over so like to just click to move along. Can't do that here. It's also a pet peeve of mine when a HOG wants you to find an object and there is more than one. In the first scene, they want you to find a mushroom. I kept clicking on the mushroom until I found out that it was the wrong mushroom. Don't put another similar object in the scene. The graphics also really bothered me. They looked fake and cheesy like someone learning some graphics software. The few mini games that popped up before I deleted this were extremely simple.
Just too many things wrong with this one.

Too demonic for me
I am not a prude, I like scary storylines, and a few demons here and there, but this game just gave me the heebie jeebies from the get go! I didn't even play past the first 5 minutes, as I found it way too demonic, so I can't give it much of a review. I just wanted to point out that many people would find it a bit much.

Theatre of the Absurd?? No....
First I want to say I finished the demo in 30 minutes. Like many of the other reviews, a few things annoyed me with this game.
1. It is a reaalllly slow story line.
2. There are cut scenes that seem to be random and really annoying. I could skip some of them though...
3. In the hidden object puzzles, there are multiple items, some of the items are tiny, and there are no sparkles alerting you that there even is a hidden object scene.
It passes the time though..I found myself trying to rush through the game to see if it got any better..for me, it didn't

This was one of the worst games I've tried in quite some time. The graphics are fuzzy and/or blurred to the point of non-recognition. There are random light sources that do nothing to enhance the scenes - they simply distort the scenes. And, finally, IT'S SO SLOW!!I cannot think that anyone would get much enjoyment from this one! It's a shame really - story could have made for an excellent game.

Way too weird for me, didn't even finish the demo. Too fuzzy, too cartoony, too blue! Not my cup of tea.

Way too many cut scenes
It was slow and way too many cut scenes. I like to get right to the puzzles and finding things.

I read all of the reviews , and they really choose the games for me so I was expecting a bit of a scare, great grapics, good storyline etc, etc.
Ive never been so disappointed in a game in 7 years. Ive been trying to get into it for 2 weeks and Im sooooo BORED.
I dont know why its not grabbing me, its just not.
Yes, the grapics are good. The HOGs are ok, the mini-games aren't bad.....but thats about it.
Ive given up and bought the latest Puppetshow. After 5 minutes, I barely gave this another thought.
The only game Ive ever bought and given up on.

The Worst Game I've Ever Play On Big Fish
I never play the demo version of games. I don't want to go back and play the same thing over. After about an hour of trying to play this game, I regret not playing the demo and the $3.49 I paid for it. The graphics are terrible and the game play is confusing. Hints are worthless. When finding a bottom jaw in the first hos, how was I suppose to know it was suddenly a key? Seriously?! This is the first game I bought from Big Fish that I never finished and will never reinstall.

Reading the reviews in the forum is a waste of time.
This is a horror themed HOG meaning it will have some "scary" themes. So when I read the reviews I was actually excited.
Until I played it.
No, it wasn't scary. What killed it was how lame it was. The 3D was the biggest turn off. I like 3D just as much as any gamer but when it looked as bad as it did here then don't bother. I would've preferred her arm to just be drawn.
As for the plot. Well, what plot? I was thrown into it so fast that I had no idea what the heck happened. There's a demon and an old man. Then a little girl shows up and now we're both possessed and then angels are telling me to get stuff for a bell? What? Was there a memo I missed?
As for the HOG scenes, they weren't as bad as I read in the forums. Those were pretty interesting. I only had one moment where I legitimately knew I would have never found an item without the hint.
It had potential. It had some really interesting elements that I loved. IE; her possessed arm tells you hints. I thought it was so cool when you first use it and it says to not open the door. That was pretty awesome.
All in all, terrible.
Don't waste your money on the full download and don't was the space on the trial.
