Web of Deceit: Black Widow
enjoyed the game very much, graphics and scenery were excellent, good storyline, music was quite good, at least it didn't make me want to turn it off. The insects are very life like in some scenes very much so. The hidden objects games were easy as were most of the puzzles.The only downside was the dialogue, way too slow. All in all it is a good buy.

I hate spiders, but I enjoyed this game. Bugs are everywhere. The game is challenging and the graphics sound and storyline is very well done. I enjoyed this game.(not the bugs though, I really hate bugs LOL). This game is well thought out.

very unique game
The reason why didn give 5 stars : i never skip so many mini games in a game,, (( Some of them too complicated for my bird brain,,,
I bought it after less than 5 minutes of trial play, the spiders and butterfies are too attractive to resist for me, The graphic is super, the real characters acted well, they making the story alive and interesting, and there is a map easy to transport to different locations that really saving times from wondering around.
Those who playing this game might jus like me, cant stop til the end.

The webs look real!
The graphics are good, I am not a spider fan and these came close to the real thing, but I didn't shy away, fortunately its just a game. The storyline could use a bit of work but its ok, its not my first choice of games but I would purchase it. I played the demo and it was fun, I wish it had more immediate tasks, it seems as if you are searching at times for something to do, but then it recovers and the game is ok. I am interested in seeing what happens from the point I ended, so I would definitely purchase. I just hope the ending doesn't make me regret purchasing.

if you don't like spiders you may not want to play this one. i don't mind them and there were a few scenes that gave me the creeps. the graphics are good and what i heard of the music it was a typical mystery tune. hint and skip charge pretty fast. the hints tell you where to go and you have a map and a journal. there is a lot of back and forth. it is a fun game. the mechanical spiders take over and wrap people up in a web and that is what got to me, i think. good game, though! there are 3 level and i played casual. some of the mini games were easy and some harder.

Would have been great...
I read all the reviews before purchasing this game, and although there were some real negatives, I really liked the trial. So here are my thoughts: some great HOS's and puzzles; way too short a game. The scenes are beautiful, the story isn't very complicated and have some live actors (who speak WAY too slowly), but the puzzles were tough enough that I had to skip a few! Good game, overall.

Another good one.
I like this game. It was interesting to play. The only thing I didn't like was the weird dialog. I thought there was something wrong with my sound at first, but no, it was just the way they recorded it. Odd, so very odd.

This is a good game. I played out the trial but, was disappointed by the long pauses like it was going to stop. I wanted to purchase but, I'm afraid to cause I'm afraid it will end up crashing.

maybe 3.5 good game
The graphics are great and the music is good. Has voice over. The hint button works good but a little slow. The HOS are good some you really need to look for. The puzzles are challenging. What I did not like was you had to listen to all the talking or not at all. Could not speed it up. If you click on anything you skipped it all. The other thing is that you had to do lots of going back and forth to do things and find things to use. Not a bad game just lots to do.

Decent Game, If You Can Cope With Spiders
GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
It?s not sensational, it has no extra gimmicks or gizmos, it?s just an average HOG with decent production values.
I guess the one thing that does separate it from the crowd is the extensive use of LIVE ACTORS. This I think they did PRETTY WELL. They hammed it up a little bit, and the LIP SYNC was a little OFF, but all in, not a bad effort. There was also a LOT of REPLAYABLE VIDEOS, and they are done VERY WELL.
As you?d expect, there are SPIDERS everywhere ? mostly mechanical ones though. The STORY is not going to win awards, but it was held together well enough. You find yourself stuck in a little town that?s been taken over by spiders. Yick! And now you must find out what?s going on and defeat them.
WARNING to the squeamish: there are a LOT of dead bodies in this game, although none are gory or gross.
This is primarily a HO GAME. There are some STRAIGHTFORWARD PUZZLES, but relatively few. The HO SCENES are excellent. VERY CLEAR, objects clearly visible and a reasonable size. They do make use of colour to confound you a little, but not enough to irritate. The ANIMATION really livens up the scenes.
In general, this game is autumnal (fall, for the US contingent) in colouring throughout. Which was unusual.
The GRAPHICS were GOOD, not great. And the same can be said for the sounds, although sometimes the AMBIENT SOUND included strange and creepy mutterings, and that was REALLY WELL DONE. I found myself checking behind me.
All up, good value game, even at full price.
