Live Novels: Jane Austen?s Pride and Prejudice
So what, it's not murder and death
This was a bright and relaxing game. It has a slight scroll from side to side. Music good and graphics are nice.
I see a lot of people have thumbed this game down. To each his own, but it is a pleasant game. I think a lot of the dislike stems from the fact that it is NOT full of DEATH, DARK, AND THE OCCULT. Lately it seems that is all people will play and anything else can go in the can. That is silly.
This game offers a nice enjoyment that is safe for all ages. I highly recommend giving it a fair shake folks!!

Much better rendition
When I saw this game I thought there must have been a mistake. Haven't we played this game some days ago?
It turned out that another game with a similar title was indeed released some days back and has met rather mediocre reviews.
This one though seems to be different.
Let's get the "bad points" out of the way first. You must be able to stomach yet again a Jane Austen's story. I'm sure at her time what she wrote about was revolutionary but today I find it boring. But that is just an opinion. I also found unappealing the interface of the game. An option to fix the inventory box would have been nice.
Yet the game looks nice. It uses the FROG style, the items are not too difficult to locate, the puzzles are varied.
I particularly liked the graphics, paintings fitting the time period of the story are used in the puzzles and I find this very nice. The music was also nice, fitting and unobtrusive.
So overall the game has sufficient game elements to encourage me to endure through and finally get in a roundabout way what the fuss is all about Jane Austen and her novels.
In that respect we can say the game succeeds in its purpose, as suggested by its title, to bring the novel to life.

Not such a bad game....
First, I must say that even though this is not the best game in the world, it is pretty decent... Not to much dialog, just enough to get the story told. People say it's boring??? It is not so boring in the least. Thought it was pretty cute. So, it's not the most sophisticated game. It was fun.

It's Not A Bad Game
I usually believe the low ratings and stay well away from those games, but I bought this without looking at the reviews first (first and last time - not a good idea!). But I was actually pleasantly surprised by this game.
Visually, this game is stunning - the developers have put a lot of effort into making this game very realistic and the outdoor gardens are particularly lovely. The 3-D effect is very appealing. Well done for that.
Yes, there were aspects of this game that were dorky - the constant scrolling from side to side, and particularly some of the language - poor spelling (always check your spelling before publishing anything!), and unrealistic dialogue eg. "I think she's cute" or words to that effect - something a 21st century teenage boy would say, not Mr Darcy! Also, Mr Bingley I think he is, looks like a 1980s punk video star. Mrs Bennett looks a lot like the BBC character - good one.
Other than that, I can't fault this game. It is not hard, and some of the mini-puzzles were quite lovely. I am surprised it was so poorly reviewed.
Lesson - don't always believe the reviews. I liked this game. I did buy another game with high reviews which I did not like at all.
Give this a go.

Not The Best, But Certainly Not The Worst
I didn't mind this game. Some parts were alright but others were just frustrating.
Graphics were clear, modern and detailed.
Easy hidden object scenes. If you aren't very patient, like me, you'll love this
The hint refilled very quickly
I liked how to complete an object, you needed to find parts of it. Most of the time, I don't like this but it seemed to fit perfectly with this game.
Would've liked a little more variation in the game, perhaps a puzzle or two.
Should've been some voice-overs.
The storyline was not interesting at al. Got bored with it very quickly. A comic set out with no voice-overs and hardly a proper storyline.
The scrolling thing. To find the majority of the objects, you needed to scroll to look around the room. I found this to be really annoying and time consuming.
While I won't be buying this game, I think people who enjoyed the novel or people looking for something a little different will like it.

It was so so
Not a game that jumps out at you and says buy me. It was a relaxing game but boring at the same time. You really need good observations for the hidden objects as they are very well hidden. A lot of dialog and jumping from one scene to another. Mrs Bingham is very like the film character and it is easy to follow the story if you have seen the film. Overall it was an OK game. The hour goes by very quickly and I didn't get to far as it took a long time to find some of the missing items.

Didn't think it was all that bad
I'm really in two minds about this one. The HoG scenes are beautiful and the interaction is interesting, the objects are challenging to find. The music is soothing as well.
However - I'm not sure if i can get over what the devs have done to one of my favourite novels. The modernisation is appalling - someone is described as 'cute'!) The cut scenes showing the story are all over the place but if you can ignore that i think this game could be a grower.
In my case i will wait for a free game or catch of the day before buying this one.

good PC filler
Based on FULL hour Demo:
one game level
Artist concept drawing between scenes
FROG (Fractured Object Scenes) tend to go from monochrome to bright
Some Object are difficult to see (white on white sort of thing)
Hint refills at about 45 second-I used it alot
Click Penalties & sometimes has dialog to tell you you misclicked (really?)
Overall a relaxing game to wile away an afternoon if you want a non-demon, non-gory, family friendly type of game
or if you are at end of month & need to burn a punch code or get you card punch for a freebie
**On personal note I find Jane Austin books kinda funny in todays world. More a comedic story line.
