The Lake House: Children of Silence Collector's Edition
Get rid of the Mask!
This game started out slow for me. As the game continues the story gets better. Its all about a terrible mask, whoever has it on, does awful things. The bonus chapter, has the new wife going back to try and finally get rid of that darn mask! As usual, the graphics are great and puzzles aren't too hard. Good game overall.

An Adult Review
This game was pretty good, but I finished it within a couple of hours. Not very difficult. But variety of scenes is very entertaining and great graphics

A Different Story
It's all about the story, folks, and this promises to be a really good one. The opening left something to be desired, but things progressed from there.
The HOS were interactive, art work impressive, and the actors reasonably good. Minigames were interesting and varied, if not totally original. I left the sound on - always a good sign. There promises much to be explored. The level of challenge was good - this is the first game in sometime that I didn't finish the trial before the hour was up.
On the other hand, while I was grateful for a different story, I did not get far enough along in the story to be unable to endure not finishing it. If the trial was a wee bit longer, I might have splurged on the CE immediately. As it is, I will wait for another credit, or the SE, whichever comes first! But I will want to see the ending - another good sign.

Good game but......
What I loved was that the games ending leaves room for a sequel where I hoped to learn more about the mask and see how it affects another person. The Bonus game kill that hope. How the mask got it's power was lame and it dashes the chance of another game. Yet another game that is better off without the bonus chapter.

Enjoyed the Demo
I found this game to be enjoyable. Not the hardest HO game but the storyline was interesting and makes me want to continue playing it. Graphics and sounds were great. Overall I would give this game a B+.

Good Game BUT
I must cry FOUL, developers. There are at least two HO screens that I know of that are exact duplicates from your other games. Did you think we wouldn't notice?
Otherwise, it's a great game with plenty of interaction and a main character that looks like Benjamin Bratt. That certainly added the eye candy factor.

the art work was good... but the challenge wasn't very hard, items were easy to find... but the PITA bit was constantly running from one end of the game to the other...

Fun all the way through...but so easy
Review based on full game. Enjoyed all the puzzles, the smooth flow of the game. Had to go low on the challenge level rating though because even at expert I sailed right through. Games are novice level, which can be fun. I didn't feel like thinking too hard tonight anyway.
All around a fun game.

over all enjoyable game
I liked this game over all. the only reason I gave it four stars not five is the end. I wanted to destroy the mask but we don't get to. otherwise all was good. finding things was well done, not too dark and unlimited clicking with out getting yelled at. I don't use sound so can't rate that. the hint button worked well, there was a map but I didn't use it, kept forgetting about it and I don't think it really did much anyway.

Children of silence
Really good, I enjoyed it. Very dark and creepy, lots of rain and fog... Bonus for the angry dobermann and posters in the cinema. :) I think this game's strength is in the excellent graphics and the storyline. It kept me interested the whole time. What exactly happened?? I was really scared that our character might be a killer. :D And even after that. Who invented the mask? Who is the mysterious man at the Lake House, and how can I destroy the evil thing?
