Infected: The Twin Vaccine
This was one of the best Mystery/HO games I've played in a while- Just the right balance between difficulty and fun. Extremely well acted and great graphics. 1 star deduction for length....I could've played this for another 3 hours and not tired of it!

Loved It... Wished it was longer.
Great game, but short in length. A different storyline and the cut scenes were excellent. Teaser at end gives the idea to a sequel. I would definitely play a sequel.

I liked this game very much!! From the very beginning it caught my attention with the news reporting a twin missing and she possibly being the only one whom can cure those infected in the town. Your job is to find her and the cause of the of virus. The mini games are really cool and all in all a very good HOs game.

I have a ton of games from Big Fish (mostly Ho) but I have not purchased any lately because I'm really tired of the creepy, ghosts, murder and worse....... genre. Did the trial and purchased the SE (CE's are mostly a waste) for this because it looked a bit different and the reviews were mostly excellent.........big disappointment. Challenge level was minimal (never used walkthough), the "back and forth" was ordinary, and although the story line started out interesting, it really went nowhere. The live people were okay and well done and the interactive HO's scenes were a different but all in all certainly not a great game.

Dissapointing in the end
This game had a great start with believable news footage and sounds that placed you in the thick of the action. As the game progressed though, I found the game play less than challenging and the main antagonist silly. There is a redeeming persona in the homeless man which offers aid for the price of a bag of chips. Found objects are used almost immediatly so there is no packing things around for hours waiting to use it. If you decide to buy this game, don't bother with the CE as the "Extra Chapter" has short run time and doesn't add anything to the story. Took me 10 min. to complete.

Very Good but SHORT
Premise is modern and pausible but the game is too short! Recommend if you don't mind a limited gaming experience.

There's always a "but..." isn't there?
I usually don't post reviews but for this one I'm making an exception.
First of all, I appreciate that the storyline is fresh. My favorite games are hiidden object games but I sometime get tired of castles, witches and such. Second, the graphics in this sometimes make me wonder how much are photos and how much are computer generated. If it's both, the blending of the two is outstanding.
This being said and admitting that I haven't finished the game yet, I come to my "but..."
I don't like the icon signaling a switch to another scene. I can understand an arrow or feet walking or something that points or shows movement. This game has a clock with hands going around. #And it just occurred to me that is might be a compass. Still doesn't work for showing movement/direction.#
The next thing I don't like are the HOS. I know the big trend is to make them interactive these days, but they're not consistent. Accessing some parts of the HOS will open the inventory, some won't even when you need items from it.
I also admit to having a pet peeve about words not being used properly or not matching in the game. If a hint tells you to pick up the red ball, it should be listed as that, not as a red orb, for example. So far, I've found less of this in this game than most.
But...in the back apartment that is behind the burning building, is a room with lab equipment. On the floor is a book that when clicked on, explains it's on etymology, the study of insects. Uh, no, etymology is the study of the history of words. *Entomology* is the study of bugs.
Picky? Maybe. But it's sloppy. And irritating. And saddening that no one in the development process, the alpha testing, the beta testing, wasn't curious/knowledgeable enough to catch it.

I was expecting so much more...
I was expecting a deeper story line. It was kind of like, oh... that's it?
The game was too short.
I am just really disappointed.

Not for me
I played the demo for 25 minutes and did not like it. The ho scenes has too much to do. It was boring to me. I did not care for the storyline. Its slow when you want to skip scenes. This game I think would be good for beginners.

Anyone have trouble getting this game to run? My screen just pulses, never letting me even add my name. I sent an email to the tech guys. Sounds like you're all having such fun playing!
