Shadows: Price for Our Sins
this is an absolute no go for me
when was this game developped ? 10 years ago or more ? I must admit that I stopped playing the demo after 4 minutes !
And frankly speaking BigFish: It is not the time for a Halloween game, is it ? This is again one of the poorest games I gave a try during the last months.

Something a little bit different
The winner in this game is the story. It has been developed with a bit more depth than most games. The characters all have something to say and the story is told in a variety of methods, from straight talking to you, to silhouette cut scenes that are almost oriental in flavour. It's just that little different which made it a nice game to play.
It's not particularly challenging and there is an excellent map pointing you to where things need to be done in case you get stuck. If there was one thing which I would change, it would be some of the items in the HOS. They are inter-active and engaging, but some of the items were almost impossible to find without a hint, and I hate using hints! Gameplay was satisfyingly long, especially for an SE. All around, just a nice game to play.

I don't recommend this game...
Some of the puzzles are weird, and not fun. The last puzzle/game was ridiculous, boring, and frustrating. The game wasn't engaging. I wanted to finish just so I wouldn't feel like I completely wasted my credit. Now that I'm done with the game - I FEEL LIKE I COMPLETELY WASTED MY CREDIT.

Excellent Halloween Adventure!!
This is one of the BEST Games i have ever played from BF
i do Love Halloween and spooky stories
The story is Fantastic!!
The mini games are in general fun...
Fun... not necessarily super challanging though..
I dislike HOS in my adventure games
but these scenes were only a very Minor distraction
They are the best type of Interactive HO scenes
you have to play them to understand why..
I do Recommend this game to any Adventure Gamer
one of my sisters and i played it together
and we were hooked and entertained
the Entire Game!!
Game has a map and is a Long game
If you scare easily dont play alone in the dark ..

Buy this game!
I just finished this game & I loved it! I liked the story line. Graphics wonderful.....story line wonderful......puzzles challenging.....hints just right. If you want to play at your own pace: quick & easy or slow & challenging.....this is the game! I've been thinking & looking for an HO game, to introduce my parents to, who are in their mid
70's & this will probably be the one. It's a great game. THANKS BIG FISH!

I was reading the reviews here and am now curious of some thing, it seems like everyone agrees that the sound and graphics are fantastic, so I am now wondering is some thing wrong with my copy? When I played it, the voices were so low I couldn't even hear them, even with my speakers max volume. The graphics were alright, but a lot of the scenes were nothing but black and screams and other sounds, but still nothing but black. So a low score because again as I said a lot of the scenes were nothing just sounds.

Bad start, got better and better
One might wonder why I gave this game 5 stars yet not all "Excellent" ratings. Well, there were shortcomings, but overall the game was so good that it shouldn't be missed.
I did not like the start at all. Those awful puffy, unrealistic avatars really turned me off. And they kept calling me Dylan. If you can't put my chosen name in, then you shouldn't use a name at all. The "retorts" when you try to do something that's not allowed are often misleading (You can't use this item here) -- well, not right now but later you can. Sometimes you have to keep clicking around an area when you know it is the right action. Other times it will tell you to do things you have already done, and sometimes there is no action cursor where an action can be taken, e.g. on the projector. These glitches should have been caught during testing.
There's lots of back and forth, but that's okay with the transport map. The graphics are not always crisp but generally quite lovely. Most of the mini games are simple, yet always fun and often puzzling. The ghosts are well done, thankfully not puffy avatars. The HO scenes are fun but sometimes fuzzy, which is tough on my eyes.
Best thing is that there are LOADS of places to explore! Even when you think you are near to finishing the game, new areas open up. While I can't count this as one of my all-time favorites, it is definitely on the A list.

This was a very fun game! In my opinion, better than a lot of the Collector's Editions of late. Great story, keeps you moving right along. You help different characters along the way and each gives a new slant on the storyline. The HOS are fantastic- lots of interaction in them and challenging. The graphics were good. You collect figurines along the way of each of the characters, and by placing them in the game, you earn an object to help you move on. Just try it- you will be pleasantly surprised.

Shadow: Price for Our Sins
This is a good long game with a good storyline, but...If you like to find things in the hidden object part of this game, forget it . The developers had too much fun hiding everything. I even had to find a walkthrough just to complete some of the hidden object scenes. That took the fun out of the game for me. I played the whole game hoping that the H.O. would get better. I had to use the hint button too much.

One of the best
My daughter and I have been playing quite a few of the games of late. For these types of games we play on expert and try very hard not to use any hints. We were able to do this game without using any hints and didn't have to skip any puzzles. The puzzles were varied and challenging and it kept our interest throughout. I like that there weren't many HO and the ones that existed were more than just finding objects. The game felt like a journey. The map is a great feature. It allows you to know that there is something there to be done, so it is in a way a hint without using the hint feature. Hoping we find more games like this one!
