Angelica Weaver: Catch Me When You Can
Some bugs but well worth it
Noticed in forum that other folks had trouble with bugs shutting down game, and some gave up. Confess my game hit some snags and shut down, but I just started game back up and it would be fine - it's very well worth it. Great fun, unique play, not many HOGs, but wonderfully unique storyline. I keep a netbook nearby with the walkthrough open and peek when needed. I know, that's cheating. Senior citizen privilege. Hardily recommend for novelty, cleverness. Loved it.

Not like the others
Great game. The mini games are unlike all the others. Yes there are some things I would change EX- characters could be more life like, but this is going in my favorite list just for the fact that after playing over 50 games this one had stuff I had never seen before.

A really good Adventure
One of the best games I have played, many scenes and not excessive reuse of Hidden Object scenes. Lots of variety

This is more an adventure game than a typical HOG and it was great.
Just a few HO's
story line is interesting
you have to earn hints, but you will have plenty of them
journal is nice but not really necessary
not a lot of back and forth, it's a logic gaame
Really enjoyed the game.

Entertaining in all aspects
more adventure than hog, play past & present time, nice graphics, voiced, well animated, lots to do and gather. And Angelica looks like a normal person with a 'normal' body. That alone is very refreshing.

Initially I wasn't keen on this- thought it was a bit clunky compared to the games I usually buy- but fortunately I persevered and I'm so glad I did! I absolutely LOVE the storyline which has a bit more thought in it than usual; I also liked Angelica who wasn't just a cutout but interacted well in the scenes. The best thing for me were the puzzles- different to the usual run- of- the- mill finding/using random objects- the items you have to find in this make sense in the story and are tricky to find! A great game- kept me entertained on a cold, wet day, with lots to do!

This game is totally different from all the other games I have played. You go back in forth in time to find clues to help solve the mystery, but it's done in a realistic way so it doesn't seem at all fantasy like. I was sorry when the game was over.
This is a true adventure game. You collect dream catchers and these are you allowable hints. I collected them all and only used a few. You also collect badges.
You have to think about what you are doing and how to use what you have.
Truly a remarkable game and I hope to see more of them; a must have game for sure.

I have played hundreds of HOG over the years, and this one tops them all. First of all, it is very long, so well worth your money. It's state-of-the-art technology is impressive. The storyline is engaging, and the graphics are top notch. The puzzles were different, fun and the difficulty level was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and highly recommend it!

REVIEW BASED ON ABOUT 2 HOURS OF GAME PLAY
Just could not get into this game. It was too clinical for me because of Angelica's comments. Her image on the screen was distracting. VO was good as was the IHOs. This game presented itself as more of a documentary with statistics than an actual story. Having to keep an eye out for dream catchers and sheriff's badges in every scene was time consuming. Scrolling scene(s) and lots of back tracking.

Caution - Cannot Switch to Standard Mouse Control
Extremely disappointed 5 mintues into purchasing game. Hand mouse flops all over the place, cannot get good hit on selection. Bought collectors edition, waste of money, too frustrating to play. Should have tried the trial, but assumed most games these days have the mouse option. Sad.
