Rite of Passage: The Perfect Show Collector's Edition
Not sure whether this is worth CE prices
Based of 1 hour of demo play.
First impressions matter a lot to me; when I trial a CE I expect to get sucked in and not notice the hour go by. Here however I found myself drifting off on occasions and happy when my hour was up.
The storyline offers a lot, and maybe playing experience improves as the game progresses. But during the demo the storyline could not make up for the graphics, grainy and dark. The game also cannot be adjusted for widescreen so the graphics are further worsened by the fact I had to peer through a letterbox to play it. Shocking in this day and age!
There are 2 game modes - casual and experienced. I played in casual mode and there were not too many sparkles - good IMO.
The HO scenes are painful due to the graphics.
You have to find hidden masks in each scene and the little mask icon glows green when there is one to find, which kind of takes the fun out of it.
There are voice overs but the characters didn't endear themselves to me at all.
All in all a mediocre offering which may be worth a SE price tag but I won't be playing any further to discover if I am right.

average hidden object game
the game is fun but i think that it could have used a bit more challenges. that would have made the game more interesting

Wasn't so perfect of a show for me....
I wanted to really like this game because I usually like quirky games with carnival-type features. It was sort of slow moving and I didn't think it was much of a challenge. The HOS were not difficult at all, and the items were easy to find. I was not impressed with the overall game.
It was....at most....something to do for an hour. I will not be purchasing this one. :-(

Rite of Passage: The perfect show
The first 15 minutes of play, I found the story line about missing children to be in poor taste. You also have to keep going back and forth, with different objects which is a pain. All in all not a game for me. The hos are sorta hard, and do not have much to do with the theme of the story.

Groundhog Day, etc
I have checked BF less and less over the last year, and when I do the featured game and most all the ones I missed are the SAME PLOT, I swear. Over and over and over ....lost kid, missing kid, abducted kid....car in the rain, running all over and calling it "game-play time", gates with no keys, spooks that aren't spooky, go save someone, gear puzzles, turn the rings puzzles. I really am stumped. Do they just use a cookie cutter to make these? It's just a matter of how well the game is done, like remaking Dracula for the 6000th time. This game is more of the same. I don't know who the child is in the game but they get more face time than the Geico Lizard. The graphics are blurry, the rain rains, the locks are locked, the child is abducted, you root around empty stores, empty houses, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. If you must, buy this when it's a SE. To everyone out there making games for us: I love you dearly. Now when oh when does someone think up a fresh plot that's based in creativity and really gives amazes us?

Rite of Passage: The Perfectly boring Show
Oh dear, with such awesome reviews I bought this outright without playing the demo. I find it childish and very simple, very low challenge level compared with the recent releases. I am not sure if I can finish this game............ it is realy very tedious. Sorry BFG, this is not up to the normal standard...... :(

Very poor quality and boring?
Two games in a row that were unchallenging and bad graphic and slow play. Took a long time between cut scenes. There are better games to buy.

This wasn't the best I've played!
I've played a lot of strategy/HO games and despite that, I still find a lot of the games on BF to be challenging and entertaining. This game was not so. The graphics were a little flat, but the storyline wasn't bad. It wasn't enough to keep me interested, though. The challenges were incredibly easy and when you find objects you use them right away. There wasn't much thought as to what I needed to look for because it was always nearby and it was laughable how simple the tasks really were. I'm not a pro at these games, like the said, but this one was way too easy. The storyline was the best part and even that left a little to be desired.

Did Freddy Kreuger design this game?
I played for 12 long minutes. In that time, I think I collected 3 or 4 photos of missing children. Sickening. The unease started when I saw the girl in the playground and the creep watching her in the bushes. Then the girl blames the teacher 'it's all your fault!'. I am all for dark, gothic lines, but this is just beyond....decent. Poor judgement to release this game. I can take awful voice overs, storylines, and so so graphics #think Vampireville here# but I just kept getting bad vibes, so after I get done with this review, I will not be able to get this game off my computer fast enough.
