1 Moment of Time: Silentville
Didn't like HO scenes
Well fishies, I think this would be a great game as far as the story but I hated the hidden object scenes. They were so dark that I couldn't hardly read what I was supposed to find. I would really like to be able to play more of the game but this was just too time consuming and nerveracking.

Well, that was a waste of a game credit
Yuck, this game is definitely NOT up to the level of Big Fish's usual fare. The background graphics are okay but the old style character depictions are clunky. The children's book-style cut scenes, plodding storyline and "interactive" HOG's are bad, bad, bad. This game seems like something that I would have seen a few years ago as the genre was exploring what worked and what didn't (this game falls into the didn't category) Sorry BF, but this one is a stinker; I quit after just 20 minutes.

I bought this game, loved the beginning graphics, but its a little slow on the story telling, nor do I care for the voice telling the story or the water art work. The music sucks. Would I buy it? In hindsight ...no not a best choice!

It was just okay.
Again, it was just okay. I like your more spooky type of Hidden Objects Games.

The story line was OK but I didn't particularly like the game play itself. Not sure what bugged me about it, but it DID bug me. I can't really explain it but it just didn't feel good playing.

The graphics are fairly good. Lost the story line other than a storm hits the town and miners. Too much jumping around in the game no set pattern to follow. May be great for some folks just not for me.

Looked promising but after playing the demo it's a no-buy for me.
So-so storyline, not very chanenging puzzles and irritating aspects to controls, e.g. needing to double click to go thru doors, sealed it.

Thought I would love it but.....ARGGHHHH!!
This started out fine,and I thought it would be a great game. Then when I logged in again,the startup scene was half of the computer screen,and some of the options were hidden. I finally got it to get to 3/4 of the screen,and then I had sound problems. I reinstalled it and same result. I tried again and it started off half screen then adjusted itself.
The graphics are beautiful,but it is exceedingly annoying to click on the hint screen,and it takes you to another scene where you are supposed to use something in your things you have acquired. There is no clear indication which it may be.
The HO are vague and small, and you need to get one object to complete the whole item,but you can't make out what the item you have clicked on IS! I have a 23" screen,so that is not the problem.
Altogether one of the most frustrating games I have ever played on Big Fish,and I have played MANY!

Robotic, Unguided, Monkey Work
This is only the second game I've bought and quit playing because I was so bored with it and disliked it so much I wasn't playing at all. So, instead of avoided games I enjoy - I just quit this one and played a better one.
The scenes are robotic. 3/4 of the game is finding a collection of things to put together to make 1 thing, then finding out where it goes and places it.
The story is mysterious but the game is unguided. You're never really in pursuit of anyone or anything. You just wander aimless from clue to clue putting things together.
The graphics are beautiful and the game was well rendered.
Dreadfully slow and terribly dull

Couldn't get it to play!
I tried many times to play this game but I can't get past the train station. The intro plays flawlessly and the game requirements are well within my computer's capabilities so I'm at a loss as to why it won't play. Once the game loads and I hit the play button, the cursor floats and drags slowly and there's a padlock hiding the hint button?!? Nothing happens when I click on things. Everything is in slow motion and the cursor never changes to something that will alert me to look at or pick up something. And like I said, the hint button is not available because it's "locked". What am I supposed to do with that??? Even the lightning is s-l-o-w when it cracks. I've uninstalled and reinstalled this game several times with the same results and even tried reinstalling and playing it again without success after having my computer reformatted. The game sounds so interesting too but I frankly don't care anymore because I've found other games to play that actually work on my computer. Buyer beware but as always....demo it first!
