Nightmare Realm: In the End...
I was super bored......
I played the demo which I beat in 25 minutes, really??
Also, this game has a lot of cut aways....I felt like I was watching a video rather than playing a game. Also, there is only one HO scene in the demo and is it just me or is the music that plays in the background really annoying? I didn't like the look of the "bad guy" or the floating ghost guy...super lame. I actually got up at one point and did some housework before coming back (and I still beat the demo in 25 minutes). I'm actually confused by all the positive reviews about this....maybe it's just me....but I won't be buying this game.

The separated chapters stucture of the game brings down the fun factor. The only pro is the presence of collectibles.

We have the cut scene of the father, then the game tells us all about Emily and she becomes "ill" and the mother is given the task of saving her. Once the mother gets into the portal, the story takes another direction.
I found the side trip to be just another of the "You help me and I'll help you" variety. Nothing new here. I'm sure the side trips continue and eventually everything comes out fine, but there is really not much challenge.
The graphics were okay; dark and dreary until the mother fixes the problem, then nice and colorful.
During the demo there was one HOS and one puzzle (which was way easy).
The story failed to grab and hold my attention.
Some may like it, so try the demo first and decide for yourselves.

Great Game Despite Equipment Issues
Everything about this game was very appealing except for the fact that it does not play nice with my MacBook Air, specifically the track pad. Normally when using the track pad I do not have to actually depress it when clicking on something, but for this game I had to, and it started driving me nuts. Call me lazy, but I'm so used to the track pad effortlessly responding to the slightest tap, so the fact that it didn't work well with Nightmare Realm was pretty much game-breaking and annoying. Other than this, the game was great in all aspects and I agree with most of what everyone else who has reviewed it positively has written.

Spells, dragons, demons, idols? I don't think so!

Nightmare... to the end?
Not for me. I quit about half way through. I rated Nightmare Realm 1 as one of the best games I have played (although it's been awhile). This one was just too convoluted for me.
? Pop-up inventory that can be locked
? Letterbox window
? Decent graphics
? Voice-overs (although very limited)
? Dark colors required changes to graphics settings
? Way too many dreadful puzzles
? 2-minute puzzle SKIP recharge (CASUAL mode)
? 2-part puzzle requires 2 2-minute SKIP recharges
? Inconsistent dialog (some spoken, most required reading)
? Used too many hints for what to do next
? Resorted to walkthrough several times
? Detailed hints were next to useless at times
? Too much reading of useless information that stays active
? No journal
? Too much backtracking for one item
? Map not interactive
Definitely try before you buy on this one!
