Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders Collector's Edition 4.1 5 149 149
Not Up to the Standards set by the 1st Brink of Consciousness I loved the 1st Brink of Consciousness: Dorian Grey Syndrome. I had high hopes for this one. Was sadly disappointed! The dialog alone is enough to suffocate all the fun out of the game. You can skip it, true, but it does go along with the game. Without it, the game would be confusing.. and would probably be at least 1/3 as long. Too much for me!! Struggled thru it but only because I'm stubborn! The mini games are quite easy. The CE version has no morphing objects, no trophies, no added goodies except a bonus chapter and another 45min worth of dialog to dig thru! April 2, 2013
Seriously disappointing.... Wow, really struggled to finish this game unfortunately. I'm amazed at how many good reviews it's got! It was nothing like the first one, the Dorian Gray Syndrome, which was really disappointing as I loved that game. The main problems were: (1) The puzzles were way too easy and gameplay was dull. I just got really bored in general. No excitement, everything moved really slowly, including the characters!) (2) The awful english accents. I really don't know why they have non-english people doing these roles. I wanted to scream at my monitor all the time saying "We don't speak like that!" (3) There was way too much dialogue! I'd say about 50% of the game was taken up by characters talking. It got soooo boring and you can't even skip through each sentence, it was either sit and die of boredom listening to them talk for about 10 minutes, or skip the entire speech and not know what they spoke about. The game was also quite short for a CE, however, in my opinion, the end couldn't have come soon enough. I'm trying to think of something I did like, but I'm struggling to find anything. The HO scenes were ok I guess, and the game scenes were clear and crisp, but that's about it! A bit frustrated to have spent 10 on this game! Very disappointed. November 24, 2012
Interruptions Galore If I wanted to sit through that many interruptions and that much pointless dialogue, I'd watch television. November 20, 2012
Nor for me! I am so surprised at all the rave reviews. I only played 20 minutes of the demo then deleted. The graphics were grainy and I felt like I was straining to see the objects in the HOS. The puzzles were far too easy. You just start to move then somebody starts talking again and although you can skip the dialogue...why have it if its not relevant. There is a map but it is not interactive, and finally you get sparkles in every mode except hardcore which is very disappointing. All in all, I got irritated very quickly...I will pass on this one.

Poorly designed No buy for me. I found the continual conversations annoying, the items were sometimes almost impossible to see. Trying to figure out what do next was difficult with out the hint button. Just not my cup of tea. March 31, 2013
Too Much Talking The graphics were not too bad in this game. The one thing I could not stand was the talking, you may find a couple of items and then enter into a dialouge with everyone you meet. You weren't able to take the game at your own pace, because you were constantly stopping to talk. The puzzles also were not very challenging. If you don't mind talking constantly throughout the game, you may like this one. November 20, 2012
Dissapointed I read the reviews of other players, and they must have been playing a diffferent game. I found the game boring, and honestly could not wait for it to be done. I wish I would not have purchased the ce version. December 13, 2012
Bad Mini-Game Novel I wanted to play an HOG but Bad Playhouse Theater broke out.... rim shot. The cut scene dialogue here is SOOOO tedious. It goes on and on..... and on. Then you play for 1 minute and 2 more minutes of dialogue.... repeat. The puzzles are super easy as if they can't wait for you to hear more annoying dialogue, hahaha. And half of the story makes no sense. I'm not even sure why the killer had a broken heart, come to think about. Which reminds me, don't think about playing this game! Ok, here comes another cut scene :) August 9, 2013
This is no game, this is a movie In this "game" you are helping a police inspector to find your missing daughter. So far, so good. The police inspector however turns out to be an unpleasant person, who considers himself a fantastic detective, but in fact does not do any investigation - he leaves that entirely up to you, He tells you what to do/find/discover and walks off - and acts as if he has done all the sloothing himself! But the main problem of this game is that the characters (and there are a lot of them) keep talking, and talking, and talking, and talking... Endless stretches of dialogue, and a lot of it totally irrelevant to the game. You can play for 5 or 10 minutes and than the talking starts again, going on for up to 10 minutes each time. Entire chapters are filled only with talking, with nothing to do for you, just sit and listen till they finally have finished talking. I did not feel like playing a game, it felt more like watching a (rather outdated) detective movie with some moments of gameplay thrown in once in a while. The game is very easy.The HOS are pretty straight forward (the oldfashioned junkpiles) and the puzzles are nobrainers. In fact, they even do not deserve the name "puzzle". And than, at the end, you do not even have the pleasure of ending the game yourself. No final puzzle to solve, no grand finale. The villain is killed by another character, and a police constable eliminates the further danger. You just stand there and watch. The bonus chapter is just more of the same. This had nothing to do with a game. This was a movie and a very boring one for that, with you fetching some keys and solving some "puzzles" from time to time. But most of the time, you will be passively looking at your screen, waiting till they are finally done talking. Not my cup of tea. May 25, 2014
Be Warned: Mostly Dialog I cannot believe that this thing is getting five star ratings. I say "thing" because to call this a game is a huge stretch. This is more of an experience of you watching animated characters act out an old fashioned who-done-it. I will give you two facts to help you determine if you will like this "game." 1. This is mostly dialog. It is a one gigabyte download and most of that is dialog. You sit and listen to characters talk for long stretches of time; then they stop talking and you get to do a couple of things; then the characters start talking again. What's worse is that you can't even skip through the dialog line by line: it's either listen to the whole thing or skip the whole speech. How bad is it really? It's so bad that some of the chapters of the story are ENTIRELY dialog. That's right: you don't do anything except sit, watch, and listen. Not a game by my definition. 2. The few puzzles in the game aren't really puzzling. It's just token fiddling with stuff. In fact, my young son was watching me work through one of the "puzzles" and he chuckled and said, "You call THAT a puzzle?" It's pathetic. This was a total waste of the cost of a CE "game." If I could get a refund, I would. The only restitution is to warn others. If you don't like dialog in your games, you will hate this thing. November 19, 2012
