1 Moment of Time: Silentville
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

Worst Game Ever
This game has no rhyme or reason. It doesn't give any real clues to where you need to go and takes you back and forth all over just to find HOS. You can't use the hints much since when you use 2-3 in a row, it then locks the hints and you are done. Never played such a horrible game that puts you in such a bind you can't even figure out where to go next.

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!

The game was sticky, not at all responsive. It moved so slowly I had to slow down my click rate because of that.
What bothered me more was this game had my name, my REAL name which is not something I use on game sites? How did that happen?
