Worst Mystery Case Files game ever! Terrible overacting. Horrible story line. Couldn't wait until it was over. Just not fun at all. The rotating puzzles after each level were the worst feature I've ever experienced in a game. Bought the collector's edition and am very sorry I did. The next time a Mystery Case Files is released, I will certainly not be in a hurry to purchase. Will wait to read other reviews. Very disappointed after all the hype about this game. The "live actress" added nothing and, in fact, was laughable with the overdramatization. Bad game. Waste of money. December 9, 2012
Very Repetitve and You Don't Actually Get to Play... I absolutely love the Mystery Case Files games; Return to Ravenhearst, Dire Grove, and 13th Skull are all-time favorites. So what happened?? In this game you don't get to play at all--you just run around following the psychic's instructions. There is little to look at or pick up, and only a few puzzles to solve. The rest of the game is spent going back and forth to the motel to pick up or bring back the pictures you match (NOT very enjoyable) or listening to her give you clues of what to look for via a portable radio. It's the exact same thing over and over and over... and none of it is fun. This game would have been ok if the character of Cassandra was cut out entirely and you could investigate everything on your own. But Cassandra pretty much dictated your every move and you made no decisions yourself. She acted as an audio walkthrough and told you exactly what to do. Live action is unnecessary in these types of games, and certainly not celebrity live action. I didn't mind seeing the cut scenes; judicious cut scenes further the story, but celebrities are unnecessary. The HOS were spread out over several screens, and while the idea was fine, the font was too small, the items were too small and at a distance, and it just didn't work for me. The picture-matching and cube puzzles, while fine once, were tedious and unacceptable ten times. I liked the scare/creep factor. But that's about all I can say for it - it had no redeeming features. I hope Mystery Case Files goes back to the formula that made us all fans. December 29, 2012
Can't Even Finish the Game I'm always excited when a new MCF game comes out and buy it immediately. This game has been out for 4 months and I have yet been able to finish it because of boredom. This game is definitely not up to MCF standards and will never buy another MCF game before I try it out. I have played every other MCF since Huntsville and this is the worst one yet. Don't waste your money on this game. March 25, 2013
What happened to MCF? I am a huge MCF fan, and have played, enjoyed and LOVED every other MCF game that has been released. BUT, this game was such a let down. What happened to the beautifully rendered scenes, the fun and challenging games, and the creative HOS? This game was just frustrating overall, not fun, boring and dull visually, and very very repetitive. I was so ready for it to be over. So not worth the CE price. December 7, 2012
So disappointing! When I finished this game I felt so dissatisfied. I couldn't believe that this was the game that rocks my world every year. I had to stop playing every 20 minutes or so because I got bored. The storyline was predictable and a huge let down. I thought big fishes standards were higher than this. November 28, 2012
Shadow Lake A Big Let Down very disappointed in MCF, have loved all their other games but Shadow Lake dose not make the cut, no comparison to previous releases . I was actually feeling glad when it ended and will never re-play like I have Dire Grove, 13th Skull, etc. Hoping MCF can pull out of this nose dive for the next game they release. Shadow lake = Save Your Money. November 28, 2012
the Worst MCF I am a huge fan of the MCF games and was so excited to see a new one! SO DISAPPOINTED!!! the story lines are terrible and annoying, and everything was so easy it was a joke. I beat it in an afternoon. a far cry from the last one escape from ravenhearst! please bring that one back November 25, 2012
Woof... I LOVED MCF games - until now. This one was easy, boring, poorly done, with a clunky storyline and an abrupt ending. The "puzzle" of pulling the pieces of the video together was just plain tedious and dull. I will think long and hard before I shell out the $ for the next MCF game. April 14, 2013
mystery case files; shadow lake collector's edition Stupidest and most unclear game I've tried. Strategy guide not healpful. Couldn't get past first room. November 28, 2012
Terrible game This has to be one of the worst HOG games I have ever played. What a bitter disappointment, what has happened to the original designers of the previous games? Not worth the money at all. I cant believe I have wasted my time on this game, it was that bad after half an hour I have took it off my system. Do not waist your precious time nor money on it!
