Spoiled Gamers wanting a clone give this game unfair ratings! This is a DIFFERENT style MCF game which does NOT make it a "Bad" Game. If you like cheesy B Horror flicks this game is for you! It has the bad acting and over the top characters. Kinda like the lesser known Bruce Campbell movies LOL! Poor Lea Thompson? HECK NO! It was obvious she was having fun playing her role! Many actors branch out to video games to have a little fun while making a bit of extra cash! This game was FUN and FUNNY with some scares! The environments were creepy. The graphics & sounds were fabulous I LOVE games with Live Actors also Finding the hidden objects was fun in what I can only call unconventional HO scenes. The adventure part of the game was also fun. It was the story that I enjoyed the most. I really wanted to know what happened next! I would give this game a 4.5 only because I didnt like the "cube puzzles" .... so I skipped a few. No biggie ;) I am giving it 5 stars because I really did love it & also to bring the ratings up a little so people try it. I had a blast! December 2, 2013
The BEST Game in 2012! I purchased the Collector's Edition. This game es great! The MCF series is the best and I love this game like the others. The graphics are very good and detailed done. There are many creepy places in Bitterford, Maine to explore. There are some scenes in the dark. There you need night vision googles. I really like this scenes. The sounds are great. You can hear the wood cracking under your feet. The music is good to, but there is not much music in the game. The places to explore are very creepy and if you meet a spirit you get a shock everytime. I really love this creepy places. An old school house, a burned down house and some more. The storyline is great! It is creepy too. An old horn is going around and kills everyone that touched it! It's great. I really like Brandon O'Neils and Lea Thompson in the live scenes. They are perfect done! Good job. I had so much fun, while playing the game that I played it again, and again, and again. So I played it 7 times yet and everytime the game got greater and greater. That's why I rate it with 5 stars. December 25, 2012
Mystery Case Files:Shadow Lake Fun Hidden Object Game!" I love it! January 8, 2013
Well, I am the exception to games I guess I loved this game. I found it extremely fun. I enjoyed how you had to travel to different area's to complete the HOS's. I also enjoyed having to find the area of the drawings. I also reviewed 2 other games that had 4-5 stars that I recently tried for the trial period and hated them. They had very few HOS's. When I buy a HOS game, I believe it should have HOS's lol. So I must be the odd man out where it comes to these games. The ones that everyone loved, I did not. And this game does not have great ratings, but I loved it!!! January 1, 2013
Loved it, loved it, loved it !! I was a bit wary about trying this after having read the other reviews. However after playing the demo I decided to buy it and I don't regret my decision at all. Some complained about the picture finding - I love finding the pictures. Some complained about the floaty puzzle - loved that too even if at times it was a little frustrating lol. Some said it wasn't as good as Dire Grove or the 13th Skull. Well, I didn't like Dire Grove very much and as for the 13th Skull I can't get into it at all (started the game at least 3 times !!), but this one is excellent. The graphics were superb and the game was interesting and a good length. January 1, 2013
never fails to impress me. have always enjoyed playing mystery case files games and this one is no exception, absolutely amaaaaazing! July 27, 2013
Loved this Game! I loved it so much I didn't want it to end. It was very nice to see Madame Fate once again as well. I am a big fan of MCF and I still play the other versions. This one was very different and I had a lot of fun with the puzzles as well. Big Fish Rules! March 13, 2013
Twisted game! This game was just amazing! I was confused at first though. You didn't really get much information about the storyline, and it seems the title doesn't really play a part in this game (except for the tribe). But all in all, I loved it. The spiritual drawings (auto-drawings) were a bit annoying though. You had to match some drawings with the scene, and when you had matched all, you'd go back to the psychic, and then she'll read them. Some puzzles were a bit repetitive, but that's okay; I enjoyed them. I got a lot of jumpscares through out, but I love games with a little horrific scare. The game was a bit short, but I guess I was quick? The quality of this game was really great, and I loved how you searched some scenes with night-vision goggles. Only thing I didn't like, was the hidden object scenes. I don't like how you had to go around, instead of just one place. You didn't know if you had missed an object in one area. January 20, 2013
Can't believe the bad reviews I thought this game was brilliant ! I enjoyed everything about it, and so glad I bought it. It was a great change not to have normal HO scenes and finding the hidden drawings added to the puzzle. I didn't find the talkie bits over long, they were all part of the story telling, and the acting was quite acceptable. The spinning blokes at the end of each chapter were a novel change, a bit frustrating to do with a laptop, but the skip button helped. The story was interesting, a bit common, usual relic /demon causing deaths, but done well. Would love there to be more games like this, don't miss out on this one , its fab !! January 14, 2013
One of the best! Love the Mystery Case Files series, and this one does not disappoint. Love the acting and new puzzles -- not the ordinary that have seem to become common place. December 29, 2012
