No conclusion to storyline I really loved this game up until the ending. It had a good selection of puzzles. that progressed to harder puzzles. I found the storyline line to be a bit of a mystery suspense. And I loved how creepy/ thriller movie the whole game was. But the ending did not come together. I'm still scratching my head after an hour trying to figure out what happened. Who killed who? Was that his daughter or someone elses? Who was the guy at the end? Is the dog dead? I mean is red ead.

Okay but not great No hidden object games in it at all - it was quite good but I think I've been spoiled by Raincliff and other Mystery Trackers games because they're brilliant - ending was very abrupt. Worth playing but not as good as I thought it would be. November 9, 2012
Can be a bit boring Interesting story, not much to do November 24, 2012
nothing great nothing good stood out in this game to me. It was dark and the programmers didn't provide the option to adjust the gamma. The centering of screen for everytime you needed a close up look gave me eye strain. The music was boring and didn't change throughout the entire game. A pure adventure game was a nice change but I'm looking forward to playing advent/HO next. I'm recommending this.....but don't hold me responsible for your overall won't find it here.

Not a Hidden Object Game! This is a Puzzle/Adventure Game -- be forewarned! June 27, 2012
I wanted to like this game..... There were some really great things about this game, but it was all ruined by the incessant noise. I had to play with the sound off because it was so loud and chaotic. I like to have sound effects and ambient music, but this was crazy. I hope the makers of this game think about that, because I would be reluctant to buy another one if it sounds like I'm living in a tornado. If you can stand the racket, it's a O.K. game.

Meh I found the game to be boring. I didn't like the storyline, found it nonsensical, and the gameplay was too back and forth. It didn't feel linear. June 16, 2012
What Happened Here? I normally enjoy ERS games, but this is an exception. I couldn't wait for it to be over! I purchased the game from the demo, but it as a mistake. The fun was just not there. Trying to figure out where in the world I was suppose to be, doing ridiculously difficult puzzles one after the other, just took all the enjoyment out of it for me. I enjoy adventure games, but this was just not fun. The visuals were different. When you click on an object, say a door, it comes up and then you click on the lock, it kind of zoomed into view. I thought I was getting vertigo. There are no hidden object scenes in this, so it was difficult to judge the graphics. I would find an area where something was to be and would just click, not really seeing anything, and the next thing I knew it was in the inventory. I hope this isn't a new standard for ERS. The sound was really good. I enjoyed the music along the way and the effects went along with whatever part of the story it was used. The level of challenge was very challenging to say the least. There is no map, the hint takes forever to refill, and the diary was so so in helping. The goals were good, if you could remember where it was you were suppose to use the knife. There was one part left over, or it was used at the end and I didn't see it used. If there weren't things, doors, jewelry boxes, or something needing a key, there would have been nothing to do in this game. You expect that, but not constantly. The story line, was confusing and kind of difficult to follow. Maybe I was just getting tired, but it didn't make a lot of sense. There was a beginning, and an end, it was the in-between that was the problem. If you are a die-hard fan of puzzles and wondering all over in search of something you have no idea what it is, then you will enjoy this game. I see I am out numbered on ratings, but I have to be honest with you, I make a big mistake buying this game. October 17, 2013
Disappointed Most of the time I agree with the reviewers but this time I was disappointed. The ending lacked any kind of expected "finale" that I anticipated throughout the game. August 15, 2013
