Fallen: The Flowers of Evil
I was pleasantly surprised by this game. It has a nice story that places you as a Doctor set out on a Investigation of a troubling illness that has stricken a young girl. It is up to you to discover the secret and save the girl.
The graphics were not the best I've seen but no dark and murky HOS that cause you to give up or draw within inches of the screen. Some objects had less than familiar names, but I found I only needed the hint button a few times. There is the option of game play instead of the HOS which some may prefer.
There is no map for transport and there is some back and forth but I didn't find it tiresome. The hint button will give direction outside of HOS which I used often. There are no Morphing objects or special items to find, which I tend to love, but didn't really miss them in this game.
The game had a good length and I played it casual and took my time, I didn't tire of it, and enjoyed it much as one does a good book, taking my time and enjoying it.
All in all this was a relaxing fun game where the storyline made sense and kept my interest.

enjoyed this game
i have played some really hard games lately so this one was refreshing. hints/skips charge fast. diary. don't have too many items in inventory at any given time. the games aren't too hard if you take the time to think them through. no sound and played casual, and again, i really enjoyed it!!

I enjoyed this game. The voice acting was good, especially the Father. I liked how the story progressed, building up some of the mystery.
The puzzles were fun, most weren't too difficult. The Hidden Object scenes were clear, interactive, and enjoyable to do.
There was some backtracking, but it didn't bother me. I actually hate it more when I pick up an object and use it right away in the next location.
I DO recommend this game!

Played better . . .
Sounded good when I read it, but once I started playing - well. . . . not so much. The story was uninteresting and when you found items it didn't just give it to you (too many clicks).

Quit out of frustration
There's a lot to do in this game, but the animations were too slow and the back-and-forth was just maddening.

Slow March to Obviousness
This game moves slowly. The hour demo seemed much longer. The cut scenes are no where near as good as the HO's, which are gorgeous.
Between bite marks on the neck and pallor I knew in the first couple minutes that the *wild beast* was a SPOILER ALERT, for the slow witted, VAMPIRE. Such a hackneed plot.
This game is not worth paying money for, but, if you are still tired from New Year's Eve, & have a free game coupon, get it. Otherwise, forget it.

Could have been so much more
This was a huge disappointment, especially after playing "The Lake House". The storyline was okay, but wasn't executed well. The VO's were absolutely dreadful and quite honestly, it was waaaaay to short of a game - even for a non-Collector's Edition.

More For a First Time Player
This game is just "OK" -- too much of the same HO. However, if someone is new to games, this would be a good one to start.

I only played the demo and left after 5 minutes. A game has to catch me within the first minutes, this one left me disappointed. I did not like the graphics form the very first moment, which gave me no little reason to go on, so I had to turn off.
No buy for me.
