Rite of Passage: The Perfect Show
SO BORING I QUIT 3/4 THRU
I really tried to like this game but in all honesty, I found it so boring that I just couldn't finish it. The music alone will lull you into a state of drowsiness and then the story line will put you to sleep. The graphics are dull, dull, dull. The voice overs were hilarious due to their poor quality, unless you like everything stated in a monotone. Only one puzzle posed a slight challenge to me, but by that point, I really didn't care enough about the game to work on it very long. There was a LOT of running backwards to either retrieve or use items, which I absolutely found annoying. I like a game that draws me into it's "life" and keeps me moving along because I just have to see what's around the next "corner." This is not one of those games. It felt like a job to me; a job I didn't bother to complete.

Not for Me
Before playing a game, I now read the reviews. So I just can't see why anyone would recommend this game. Its alright for a beginner, but I didn't care for the graphics, going back and forth to the same location, or even the storyline. I deleted with three minutes left on my demo. Just not what I would have expected after reading the reviews. Maybe I was playing a different game?

Not a buy for me
I read some of the reviews, thought I'd give it a try. Lasted about 20 minutes before I just couldn't stay in the game anymore. The colors and graphics are beautiful and the voice overs are very good. I don't especially love the storyline but can deal with that. Lots of HO scenes, which aren't my favorite. Few puzzles and they're either really simple to solve or seem impossible. But the real deal breaker for me was the sound effects in the HO scenes - just awful. I'll take a pass on this one.

A WASTE OF TIME
A real boring game and rather pointless. The HO scenes are dull- not clear- and loaded with the usual junk. Plus the objects are hidden behind other junk. You may be looking for an axe and all that is visible is a small part of the handle. I can't see giving it any more than 1 star. Perhaps because I just finished playing Lord of Statues - twice- because it was a really fun and different game with great cut a ways and great story line.

Phooey on Child Exploitation
I do not recommend this game to anyone. Within the first minute of the game a child is abducted from a playground. We see in first person the kidnapping, a weird and demented thing. Then the protagonist of the story, a hired tutor, expresses both guilt and revenge for the act. Stupid.
