Where Angels Cry
Very Slow Game.
Vague and very wordy. Terrible voice overs with weird phoney accents. I don't care for games that make you run the cursor over every inch of a scene waiting for a hand to appear to grab something. 2 thumbs down.

I was quite looking forward to playing a good old fashion game as I have found myself whizzing through some of the HOGs of late. I found this game very easy and over all ended far too quickly. There are only a few locations to wonder round and collect objects. Initially I had high hopes when it allowed you to play in HD, but the graphics were nothing out of the ordinary. This would be an easy introduction to point and click type games if you wished to try them.

Trial Review - Yawn.
I've seen this game recommended by so many people in other reviews that I thought I would give the game a try to see if I might use a coupon for it. Nah.
The storyline itself was interesting and the artwork, etc., is all decent...the game play is where it falls short in my view. Going back to one scene over and over because new items are available - that kind of stuff drives me nuts. If I can pick something up...let me just pick it up! Don't make me run back there over and over with the same stuff sitting around only this one "special" time, I can grab the thing I knew I needed the last time...sheesh.
The trial was really short but I was just about to bail anyway.
At least now I don't have to wonder whether I might want to add this game to my collection.

shocked beyond belief
The majority of people will disagree with me on my review.
First of all the Pros of the Game.
Great voice overs
beautifully done graphics
no hidden object list
fun mini games
I was so excited about this game that I purchased, until toward the end of the game, the gamer is forced to make a decision of life or death.
The majority of people who rated this either do not care about the morality of where there imagination takes them and what they are forced to do if they finish the game, or they did not reach close to the ending of the game. .
The Game ended at that point for me as I admit I was shocked! I will not allow my imagination to take me where it was being forced to go for the sake of a game. I am a Mom that has always monitored what Games my Children play.
A Game I thought was so innocent and fun, doing tasks working at a monastery undercover as a Monk to solve the mystery of a statue of an Angel that looked as if it wept tears of blood. It was fun doing the tasks. The voice overs were well done.
Graphics beautifully done. I was really enjoying the game until nearly at the end of the game when it was ruined for me and removed from my computer. When I was given instructions of what must be done with no way out of it, I sat stunned. I will not reveal it here otherwise to people it will not offend it would spoil the surprise for them. I refused to do it and regret buying the Game. Everyone has a line of morality, at least they should have and this crossed mine.
My Children will never play this game! I am glad I did play it first so I can protect them.
Everyone has to make their own decisions how far they will allow their imagination to take them for the sake of playing a game, and I have made mine. I regret buying the game but how else could I warn others.
If anyone wants to know what the Game Developer wants the Gamer to do in order to win the game email me.
I have to admit I have played many games but never saw anything like what is asked for the gamer to do . In my opinion and no one has to agree with me, it is highly offensive.
For now on I will be more cautious before rating a game. There was no warning I really was caught off guard and thought it was a innocent game. In my opinion it is not.
To my BFG Members please do not be offended this is my opinion and I had to write it because I shudder how many bought the game because of my previous rave reviews.
I apologize to everyone who writes me and lets me know they purchase games after reading my opinion of a game because they trust my reviews. On BFG Forum I wrote how much fun the game was but that was before the Game took a turn for the worse evil in my opinion. Why I am giving this Review instead of staying silent.
There will be people who read this and care and will warn others. There will be Grandparents, Mothers and Fathers that need to know before you allow your Children to play this game that seems so innocent but is not. There are people like me that would have wanted to be warned and would not have bought the Game if they had known.
This is why I am writing this review if it only helps one person it is worth the price of the Game. Everyone has an opinion and this is the first review I have ever written like this.

Got this as a BOGOF, mainly to see if I was morally affronted. I wasn't, just bored. Puzzles the tired old move pile A to space B, change the lights to same colour, movable rings picture to complete. Really glad game was so short because I really didn't enjoy it at all. Completed and deleted never to play again.

"Where Angels Cry" sounded promising but...
This game isn't for me.
I found the graphics to be too simplistic... too 'early computer' generated.
The opening scenes were the best part of the trial version. And, the length of the trial depends on how long it takes you to arrive at a certain point in the game.
At one point in the game you must move a stack of boxes to the other side of the screen... for no reason! I thought that once they were moved something would be there to pick up or read, but... nope.
The over enthusiastic reviews now make me suspicious. Devs? Family of devs?
Didn't like it, won't recommend it.

Where Angels Cry
Very boring; ten minutes was all I could take; graphics are poor; storyline is vague.
Game Introduction gives the impression that this is a great game; but it never happened, so why make myself more miserable!
I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS GAME!!
