Fallen: The Flowers of Evil
Possible Glitch...and i was almost done.
This one had a hard time keeping my attention for very long. Usually if the game is good I'll play till I finish. Been working on this one for 3-4 days. Then I hit a glitch towards the end with drill only took out 3 out of the 4 rivets then took the drill out of my inventory. Checked each room with the hint button and it says Nothing left to do here. So I'm thinking I may have to start over....when I have nothing better to do.

Not really worth the time
I, like others, purchased this after reading so many positive reviews and trialing it, but it went downhill after that. Unless you're desperate, I don't really recommend it. It was one of the more forgettable games I've played, and the storyline (the little there was of it) was not incorporated well. Graphics of people were just bad and too cartoony for my taste. WAYYYY too much back and forth. Sorry, but this one was not my cup of tea, between its cliche-ness, lack of originality, and tedious-at-times gameplay.

I found this game quite boring, the game just didn't have enough to entice me further, I only played 30mins of demo, but that's all I could cope with. I normally play the whole hour because the game may pick up...but I just couldn't do it with this.
The game is fine, but the storyline just didn't cut it for me.

I was pretty happy during demo-and I read other reviews. So, I decided to buy it. I can't even finish this game-the further I get into it, the slower it seems to move along. It's so unbelievably boring! I dread playing it at all now.

Didn't like it
I thought the graphics were poor. Several items in the HOS were not labelled correctly; needle was actually a hat pin, hook was a block and tackle, etc. Way too much running around; as bad a Phantom of the Opera. Story didn't move much in the hour I played. No redeeming qualities and a no buy for me.

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.

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).

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.

Aside from all the backtracking and been-there-done-that theme, the two biggest peeves of mine are: 1. having to visit a HOS more than once with all the same objects in place, and 2. finding objects that don't fit the era of the game setting. I recall seeing some very modern toenail clippers and pruning shears. Keep it consistent with the era, please!
The scenery was pleasing,nice color and the music wasn't objectionable. But because the storyline was SO not unique, I found the game very dull. Perhaps it livens up after the demo, but I'm not enticed to buy.

OK game, horrible tech issues
The game itself is OK. There is a lot of running around and back-tracking. You have a map that you can use to immediately go somewhere, but in my opinion that took longer than just back-tracking. The graphics are pretty decent, the puzzles are fairly easy. However, due to technical issues, I can't finish the game. I've tried twice now, and both times at different points in the game, I've gotten stuck and can't do anything else. The first time was fairly early on, couldn't get the lamp on the chandelier because it just literally was not there. Uninstalled, reinstalled, waited a few months so it wouldn't be tedious to do again, same thing at a different point, almost to the end. Couldn't undue the last bolt on the shield because my drill disappeared after the 3rd one. I literally CANNOT continue, everywhere I go, the hint button tells me "there is nothing to do here". After getting so far, I'm certainly not wiling to try the game a 3rd time. My advice is don't waste a game credit or money on this dud.
