Not up to usual MCF standards... I love Mystery Case Files and have been playing for years. I was so happy when this game didn't take forever to come out like the last one (for us Mac users). Ironically enough I am just now getting around to playing it. Anyway, this game ended up not being very long considering that it took well over an hour to download. I also feel like the graphics and acting were wonderful, but because of that there was serious skimping on the plot and puzzles. Having to go back and forth for the drawings didn't make much sense, but I was ok with that since searching for clothespins and grapes at a crime scene hasn't ever made much sense. It's a game. Just felt like there was little to no depth to the characters and nowhere near as interesting of a story as Ravenhearst. I can deal with lower quality graphics and bad acting if it means there's an interesting mystery I'm trying to solve with puzzles that are challenging, not just annoying. Those floating things that you had to twist around and match together? Awful. I was disappointed. Definitely try before you buy! January 13, 2013
So sorry I bought it I have LOVED all the previous MCF games and was sure I would love this one also; however, I was very disappointed. Way too much dialogue and going back and forth. I could not even finish the game. I usually don't leave reviews but with this game I had to let others know. Don't waste your money or time on this one. January 13, 2013
Very Disappointed I really disliked this game. I was so disappointed because I really like the other MCF games. Lea Thompson's part was terrible. I really disliked the puzzle part of putting her vision pieces together. It was so time consuming trying to get the pieces to line up. I ended up skipping those. Storyline was so cheesy and the acting was under par and unbelievable. Thank goodness I used a free game token instead of buying. I wouldn't recommend this game. January 13, 2013
Not up to Mystery Case Standards This is a very frustrating game not much in the area of hidden objects more hunting for clues and puzzel work you couln't skip if you wanted to. Continuously returning to the motel for the mediums drawings was pointless as the drawings really didn't get you anything worthwhile. Very disappointing. January 13, 2013
the first MCF i will NOT be purchasing Much to my disappointment I will NOT be purchasing this game. This is the first time I have been so sadly disappointed in mystery case files. There is no challenge in the game, it tells you or does everything for you( AKA removal of all of my fun). Scene hopping is made easier by the map but going between places it is a bit lagging and slow. The sound was terrible so i turned it off from the start. I am not sure if the story line in OK or not, the demo seemed a bit vague and I was a bit confused as to what the story was, maybe cause i turned the sound off?????? it took me 34 minutes to complete the demo.

MCF fail I'm so sorry my favorite game franchise came up with this! I'm sure the game makers are sick of reading how disappointed everyone is (I couldn't even finish it). But if MCF wasn't so consistently awesome this particular outing would not seem so horrible. January 12, 2013
poor quality it is quite a boring game, the only reason that keeps me playing is the storyline. I want to know what happened. January 11, 2013
unsatisfied I have played all of the Myster Case Files and found this one very amateturish and not up the the stadards of the other ones. Very dissapointed. January 11, 2013
Nowhere near as good as previous MCF games Played the collectors edition didn't like it gave the game the benefit of doubt just bought and played the standard edition and what a waste of a game credit , it just didn't have the gripping storyline eg Dire Grove which I loved and made you feel you were actually in the game but this game is awful the Hidden Objects are hard to see and the puzzles are rubbish, from a very disappointed MCF fan who has all the MCF games and who couldn't wait for a new challenge, I wish I hadn't bothered buying it .........

Disappointment I am an avid fan of MCF and found this one to be nothing short of a disappointment. It was shorter, less challenging and the story line was unclear. December 26, 2012
