An Entertaining Game For A Rainy Weekend
The atmosphere of the game, with it's gray tones, is quite haunting . I really had the sense I was in a dream. Probably the developer's intent not to be ghoulish but surreal as dreams tend to be. The cut-scenes had that same affect.
The story line was interesting dealing with making right the transgressions of dead family members. Story length was about six hours for me as I am not an advanced player. Standard Hidden Objects scenes with objects easy to find. Puzzles were designed to create some thought. I really like that.
Game would have benefited with a jump map. However, the backtracking was not tedious since the hint button will take you to the next task location.
I really enjoyed this game. Great fun for a rainy weekend.

Fun HO Game
What a cute game!! Loved the voice over. Great music and graphics. Puzzles aren't my favourite thing to do, but these puzzles were different and fun. Not a difficult game. Would be great for mom/dad/and the kids to work on.

Great puzzles, ok plot
This review is based on the standard issue of the game. I got this game because I like psychological mysteries. I also like a combination of HOS and puzzles. This game gave me both.
You play a woman who's been in an accident, which put her in a coma. You get the whole "dark-tunnel-bright-light" experience and then a strange figure tells you that you're between life and death and that to return to life you need to resolve "issues" that you have with family members. The art, background, and cut scenes are good. I don't usually play with the sound on, so I can't comment on that.
The play was good. I liked the length of the game, not too short - I really felt I got my money's worth. In each chapter there are lots of locations and the hint meter has a great feature that told you to look in a certain place and gave you a way to go right there from the hint window. That is such a great feature for someone like me, who tends to get lost in scenes with multiple locations.
The HOS's were good - not really challenging - but good. The puzzles, though, required some real thinking. There are a lot of things you have to build/construct/create, which adds to the challenge level. I spent more time on the puzzles in this game than usual, which I kind of like.
My only real complaint about the game is that the ending was far too abrupt.
Overall, a really good game with lots of challenging play.

A bit sad, but redemptive
Makes you think about people you didnt get to say goodbye to. Excellent storyline, as this person gets another chance to do so.
Tons of HOS, very clear, interactive
Good hint system, shows you which area to go
Nice music, but a bit monotomous
Good puzzles, short skip button
Length 4 hours casual

Loved the storyline
I play games for the plot factor, and this one did not disappoint. It was a bittersweet game and that pulled me in from the getgo. The one thing I didn't like was the cheesiness of the voices (except for the mysterious figures - that was cool). All in all, a really entertaining game.
