1 Moment of Time: Silentville
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!

you need plenty of time to play this game too many hidden object scenes often the same ones used more than once, graphics can be very fuzzy not much to keep your attention.Poor story line did not even complete this one as lost the will to live.

hidden object finding and clues are obtuse and overly complicated

I just didn't like this one at all !!
I love HO games, but this one didn't tell you what to do with items once you found them. Plus it didn't tell you how to interact with them even when you found them. There were a lot of objects that had to be combined with other objects to collect them....but didn't give you ANY clues unless you used one of your hints. It's one of the worse HO games I've played so far as to the DUHHH factor.....like WHAT do I do next? Not a game for me.

Frustrating, weird ending
After awhile this game had me so frustrated I wasn't enjoying. Too bad I wasted a free game credit on this

Not for me!
I have played many of the HOG's BFG have to offer and this one was DEFINITELY not one for me.
I found the game boring, lacking in any real direction and having played about 15 minutes of the demo I deleted it.
To compare this to any of the games I've purchased lately..... this is the biggest FLOP!

Wrong, wrong, wrong
I have seen the other reviews of this game and I can only wholeheartedly agree with the scorers at the bottom end of the scale.
The devs should have looked at the finished product and either reworked it completely, or scrapped it totally.
Wrong to submit it to BFG - hey buddy there are standards here! - and even more wrong for BF to release it.
There is so much better out there, seriously.
