Death Pages: Ghost Library Collector's Edition
I don't usually write a poor review but I felt this game deserved it. When I started playing I thought this would be a game I would buy, but the longer I played, the lack of music was so obvious, I found myself listening for the very sporatic music more than paying attention to the game.Needless to say I did not purchase this game.

I have almost every single elephant game there is, usually purchased without playing the demo, as they have never disappointed me. I usually read reviews and that helps me determine about investing my cash. This was such a let down, I felt I had to say something. It was very short, at the middle level and almost too easy. I will, after this one, play demos from now on by this game maker, which is sad, as I trusted them and their product for being the best out there!

Yikes! FATAL LACK OF FUN FACTOR
BASED ON GAME PLAY IN HARDCORE, the 3rd of 3 modes.
Despite rave reviews and the clever twist on iHOS that I really like, I just did not enjoy this game. It did not flow well, did not make a lot of sense, the graphics were mediocre as were the iHOS and mini-games. Three just was not much fun to be had.
Sorry but cannot recommend.
STORYLINE: Sent to a library to recover the souls of 3 teens whose souls have been captured in various books by ancient evil complete with rabid, maniacal clown and its master.
MAP: YES, allows jumping to locations, shows active areas, and provides the location of gamer.
JOURNAL: YES, but it's a list of current status of objectives. I didn't find any of the typical historical entries.
OPENING GATES AND DOORS: Mostly through standard key or character shapes such as two locks that face each other and unlock when opposing swordsmen are placed in each one.
HINTS: Not available in 3rd mode so don't know.
iHOS and Mini-Games: Uninspired, serious lack of fun factor. Provision of instructions and reset with each puzzle is always a nice touch.
The iHOS scenes are lackluster and not artfully put together. The twist of having the gamer place items in a scene from a list is normally a blast, but this game manages to make them tedious.
The Mini-Games are easy and familiar fare we've seen before. The bummer is that not much attention was given to dress them up and adapt them specifically for this game's theme.
I know I am a bit of a loner here, but there just is not much that I like about this game.

This game is a journey into ridiculousness. It begins with 3 students who went to the library and now seem to be magically trapped in books. Good concept right? Well as it turns out ony one book. Romeo and Julliet. No achievements, no morphing, no collectibles. Done by Elephant games the graphics are everything we know and love but the storylne is all over the place. More trying was the array of locks. You needed a massive amount of keys including a note, red cross, skull, .leaf, rose, frog, crown, shield, crest, snowflake an assortment of medallions and on and on and on. Believe me I could keep going but you get the picture. As you enter the library you find some semi dead people holding notes and some guy with an evil looking puppet who pops in and out throughout the game. huh? I was into the third of four chapters when the library wall fell open to reveal a frozen area guarded by a fire knight???? sigh ok that's it. What happened to the books? I dunno. At that point I gave up. After putting together an elevator to no where I had had enough. Too bad as I had once stated Elephant games to be my fave. But they have begun pumping out games like crazy and at least for me, have lost their way. This one was too all over the map for me. I didn't even finish the game never mind the bonus chapter.

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.

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.

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 will not buy this, not even as an SE.
