Don't believe the hype... I really need to start playing demos first before I purchase games. But considering how much people are raving about this game, I went by my gut and decided to get it. What a mistake. I play all HOPA games on expert and usually never have to revert my difficulty setting, but on this game I constantly had to. I went through the first 30 min wondering why every time you clicked on something to investigate it said the SAME sentence over and over. "I believe I use something else here" or "What item should I use?". You never know if you need to repair stuff, replace it, or what kind of object you need to use so you can look out for it. I clicked on a cabinet that was ajar and it looked like it could be opened. I clicked on it and nothing happened and the text at the top of the screen didn't tell me anything. I later found out (from reverting back to the BEGINNER difficulty) that something was blocking it from opening on the inside and I had to use a thin object to pry it open. How on earth was I suppose to know that from just looking at it? Apparently on Intermediate and Expert Difficulty you get those annoying two sentences instead of describing what you're looking at. On Beginner, that's when it disappears and everything goes back to normal, except everything becomes insanely easy when all the sparkling indicators comes back on. Horrible. A custom difficulty setting is very badly needed in this game. Other than that this game was a total snoozefest. It was very, VERY boring. There was nothing exciting about it, I tried to force myself to play through the whole thing but I just couldn't, I was bored out of my skull. The puzzles were ridiculously easy and HOS were nothing special. The storyline is ridiculous. You're playing the role of a detective and yet -- from where I left off -- the culprit manages to kidnap two women AND murder a innocent old man right in front of you. He is able to do so by distracting you most of the time by bombarding you with a toxic gas. Hasn't this guy learned already from the first time that he should maybe keep on his mask that he has on him? Worst. Detective. Ever. The graphics are highly inconsistent. The interface and the main title screen are probably the best graphical-looking things in the whole game. Some scenes in the game look better than others but in general the artwork was uninspiring and nothing special. It wasn't bad, just average. The music, though beautiful initially is EXTREMELY repetitive. There's a song when you're in a HOS, a song when you're in a puzzle, and a song when you're walking around. And it loops over and over. Some variety would have been nice. After a while it got so annoying I turned it off entirely. The only redeeming quality about this game was extracting scents to make perfumes that perform different functions. That was a very unique touch. Do yourself a favor. Try the demo first before you spend your hard earned money. September 28, 2013
Bored I was disappointing in the visuals for this game, the story line was pretty dull until the middle/end of the games and just when it might get interesting... done... blah. I suppose I expect more but then I am spoiled with the Blue Tea Games like Dark Parables. July 30, 2013
