Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake 2.8 5 209 209
Not worthy of the Mystery Case Files name I bought this game without playing the demo because of the MCF franchise. If they are trying to kill off their fan base, they are making a good stab at it. This does not have the humor, grace, or style of the previous games, especially Madam Fate. The game is repetitive, the storyline is banal, and it just wasn't fun to play. November 16, 2013
What Happened to MCF? Boring. Tedious. I use to love MCF, but will not buy another one. MCF:RTR was so bad I didn't finish it, but this game is just pathetic. Hardly any puzzles, the same plodding routine for "finding" clues, Lea Thompson is a sad psychic and the storyline is truly awful. What a waste of money. Bring back MCF: Madame Fate, where the storyline was fun, the puzzles challenging and the game actually fun to play. January 2, 2013
WHAT HAPPENED? I was like a kid in a candy store when i saw MCF had bought out another game. I have waited for sooo long for a new MCF but what a massive dissapointment. I always try before i buy (except MCF) but for some reason this time even the picture of the game had instantly turned me off so i did a trail 60 mins and i am so glad i did. I havent even played the free 60 mins of the game and to be truthful.... i wont bother. This game is nothing like the MCF of old. Its all over the place. The story line is extremely boring. I truly wonder how this game even passed BETA testing. Lets hope nexts years MCF game is back to the old MCF that we know and love! December 31, 2012
I feel ripped off I bought this game without trying it, just because Mystery Case Files have been some of my favorite games. Don't know that I will even finish this one. The back and forth, and remote directions from the psychic are a really clumsy effort at plot development. Locations of puzzles are predictable and the whole game becomes redundant sequences at each location. I certainly will play the demo next time a MCF game comes out. December 27, 2012
Pass on this one Not up to MCF standards. Lea Thompson seems angry/annoyed that she is in the game. Sorry to say, pass. It fails on many levels. December 26, 2012
repetitive, Repetitive, REPETITIVE and it repeats itself a lot. Don't know how this got under the classification of MCF which are mostly good games. DIRE GROVE was the best. HUNTSVILLE was a boring HOS. SHADOW LAKE is NOT a good game. The story line is boring and disjointed. It goes on forever and forever. I forgot what the whole premise was and how it began. If I saw one more FLOATING PUZZLE I thought I would scream. I'm not even at the end yet but you can be sure I know what's coming........Go back to the Motel, get pieces, put pieces in place, find objects, Go back to the Motel, repeat. Wish I could tell you the story line so I could ruin it for you so you won't buy this game but I think I lost it along with my mind about 5 hours ago. The best part of the game is the cover art of the lake which I haven't even seen yet. I've got one more map location to get to if I can stick it out...maybe I could find the Lake and drown myself !!!!!! Or at least go kayaking. March 3, 2013
What Happened to MCF? I have all the MCF games and I usually love them. I saw the dismal reviews and couldn't believe it. I have played the trial for collector and regular - and now I believe it. Very unfriendly - lousy hints - and even for basic navigational directions (arrow) not many games 'charge' you a hint for that - but this is some kind of old-school thinking? The most maddening part is you can't click to go to the next screen but are trapped until you read every boring piece of dialogue. Something is wrong at MCF. Please fix whatever it is and come back with your usual great games. December 28, 2012
Very disappointing I am a MCF fan...this is a bust. Boring and too long. December 27, 2012
MCF: Shadow Lake HATED IT....was boring..not challenging..hidden pictures were not up to par, the photo match thing and the travel through her psychic brain to match pictures was just stupid..the story line needed help...MCF Ravenhearst got me hooked on these games and Big Fish Games...but if this had been the first one I would never have come back..this was a WASTE of TIME and Credits December 27, 2012
Loved Lea, really didn't like the game I have all the MCF games, I love them, I wait with anticipation for the next one. I used a free coupon on this game, and I am soooo glad I didn't waste a credit to purchase it. I have been a major fan of Lea Thompson's since "Red Dawn", maybe even felt a little affinity, as I lived in Colorado most of my life, and camped frequently at Arapahoe National Forest, I think it is awesome that she would entertain the idea of being in a game, MCF have usually been such good games, but I feel bad for her that this game was just not in the league of all the other MCF games, and I hope all the bad reviews of the game don't convince her to quit.
