Death Pages: Ghost Library Collector's Edition
This game, with its reference to Shakespeare, is plain dumb. Everything about it is boring. If you need a hint, it tells you exactly what to do. The plot is extremely weak, and the game just goes on and on, ad nauseum. The HOS are typical, nothing new here. After being 2/3 finished, I quit.

Cheesy. A real letdown.. I expected this to really be a good game, however after the first hour it lost my attention. I did not even finish it.

Not worth getting
Too many things hidden for no reason.

game too easy, sluggish inventory, very slow too download
Well you've noted my heading, so you'll know why.
took an 40 mins too download, and it wasn't even a large file format.
i'm on an imac, and ive never had any game take that long!
i did like the story line though.
graphic's on the whole good.
i will not buy this, not even as an SE.
but don't take my word, trial it first, you may get a different view to mine@

Could of been
Could have been a great game and because it ran so ragged on my older computer and was slow running I did not get very far to tell if it was a game I would want to buy. The little bit I did play looked promising. The graphics were good. Story line was great.
Some day a new computer and a sale on Big Fish and I might buy it.

If you're a fan of R+J story, you surely must buy this game, but even if you're not, simply if you love Elephant Games, like me, this game is for you too. The graphic as usual, is superb. Very good background music, almost like classical. Lots of places to explore and HOG games is not the find the items in word list. It was a great game, few backtracking with map handy, although the last chapter requires you to go back and forth many times, which will be impossible and will get on your nerves if without a map. There's no achievement in this game but I don't really care about that. The bonus chapter is slightly a bit forced, but I enjoy it nonetheless. If you are unsure, I suggest you to try the demo first and see for yourself before buying.

I am glad I played the free trial but wouldn't buy it...
I do like the story-line, it's different, but the story itself did not flow well. There was a lot of backtracking and I am not usually a hint user but I would find something WAY into the story and have to remember where I saw it before (I found something 45 minutes into the game that needed to be placed on the very first screen) so I was finding that I was using the hint after wandering around for a few minutes just because I had no IDEA where I had seen the place for the object and I didn't want to waste my time.
I love the "backwards" HO games where they give you items and you have to figure out where they go in the scene - that was fun. Though I agree with some other reviews that the HO screens were a bit fussy (not fuzzy) and sometimes it was hard to tell what exactly you were looking at so I ended up just picking up an object and clicking wherever a little gear showed up.
I enjoy that there is a map which allows you to leap from place to place but even that wasn't enough to clarify where some items needed to be used. All in all it was mildly better than average but not good enough for me to want to pay for it. A little more time wasting without enough payout.

It's a good game but not spectacular.
I bought this game. It's a good one, but I played better games than this. It keeps your interest, but I think the level of challenge could be more. The graphics and the sound are good but could be better.
Well, It's a good game, worth buying it, but there are other better games than this.

Not my cup of tea!
I guess after you try a game, within the first 30 minutes of play you'd more or less would know if you like. Well, this game just bored me from the get go. I see by reviews how many thought it was an awsome game, but to me, nah, didn't keep my interest. Very slow and hard to move around mouse. Kept clicking and nothing happened, became frustrated. Sorry guys but games are either hit or miss and to me this one was definitely a miss.
