Silent Scream II: The Bride
Whoah! Does this have a great ending!!!
This game is worth playing just for the story and especially the ending! I have to play thiis , again.
The voice overs and cut scenes were very good and needed. Graphics were great. It's not a difficult game but well worth the money spent. The HOS start off easy and increase, somewhat, in difficulty. The hint button functions during HOs and to keep you on track. It refills quickly enough. The games are not really difficult but still fun.
After being stuck on two games, this was a refreshing change. In my opinion, it is worth buying just for the story.I know I am being redundant so you know I really recommend it.

A steady, even game....
Firstly, this game should probably be 3 1/2 stars, as it wasn't quite the same calibre as some of the games around. It was also a tad on the short side.
Everything about this game was smooth and steady. The hidden object games, puzzles, tasks to complete - all at a nice even pace. I played on the harder of the two modes, where no hints or skips were allowed...but none were needed.
You had a journal but no map, although the map wasn't really needed as the game was divided into sections, where you only need access areas around you with each section.
The storyline itself was probably the strongest part of the game, (although still full of holes) and at the very end I thought "finally, a bit of meat in a game!"...and then the last sentence was spoken and ruined everything. Take that very last sentence out, which didn't fit in with the general plot, and you have a semi-decent story. No edge of the seat suspense, but still has you guessing.
I found this game to be a great filler-in, and definitely recommend it.

A silent review
Has potential, but kind of slow moving! If you like a lot of HO's then this is the game for you because there are a ton of them. Not to many puzzles and they were nothing new, jump the red jewels over the green jewels to switch sides, or click on hex stones to trap the rat from escaping. The storyline was good but after an hour demo the only thing I did was wash out my cuts from a car accident and I followed a ghost into the forest! It's a good game, the graphics are okay, but you don't have to put much thought into the game you will know what to pick up, where to use that item and how to use that item.

Good game, nice play
Nice game, easy play for relaxing time. Not a difficult game, one of those games you can just play in an evening and relax. Quick hint recharge and help if you get stuck. Story is a little different not a lot but enough to keep your interest. Good to buy as SE or free game credit. Was a little short, only took me about 2 hours if that to complete, that's why the lesser star rating. So all in all not really disappointed. Good for beginners, teenagers.

1. Plays in full widescreen.
2. Well drawn, atmospheric scenes, just enough creepiness.
3. Voiceovers are well done, add depth to characters.
4. Music and sounds are cool, add to the creepiness without being annoying.
5. Hidden objects are clear, objects are large
6. Story is interesting, if not original, and moves along well.
1. When starting a fire, do not start one as it?s done in the game. Injury may result.
2. Some of the ?hidden objects? are nearly off the screen completely.
3. Lacks originality. Starts with car going off road, crashing, someone missing etc.
Overall, I liked the game.
Consider a purchase or definitely if you have a credit.

Much better graphics than Silent Scream: The Dancer, which I really did not care for. This one has a better story line and a few twists and turns. The transactions in action are too slow, but overall an enjoyable game. A bit "film Noir", but nice HOGs and not too challenging games.

Wow! Didn't see that coming.
I totally enjoyed this game. The graphics were great and the cut scenes were good. Most of all I liked the story and totally did not see the surprise at the end coming. It does not have the polish and all the bells & whistles that many newer games have but the story kept me engrossed. The HOG's were somewhat difficult but not because the objects were too small. The mansion was a nice change from the creepy falling apart wrecks that are the norm. I don't recommend for younger players.

Another Suprisingly Good SE HOPA Game
Silent Scream II ? The Bride is a very nice surprise. I read some of the early reviews in the forum and I have to disagree with many of the negative reviews. I decided to download the game and try the demo and after about 40 minutes decided that I will buy the game.
Although it is not a spectacular game it is very enjoyable and a good HOPA game. I found myself being pulled into the story. Yes, it is mostly a HO game but I love the genre. In 40 minutes I encountered 1 puzzle and hope to find more. The HOS are slightly interactive and very nicely done. I found most of the hidden objects of respectable size and not too much trouble to find, although I did have to use the hint button a couple of times.
The game has voice-overs in the beginning but am not sure about later in the game. The graphics are excellent and crisp on my laptop. The game automatically opened to fit my widescreen so no adjustments were necessary. The game is a bit spooky and I like the music.
All in all, a very nice SE game that I think you should at least demo before making a decision. As for me, it is very entertaining and I can?t wait to find out more.

Unbelievably good story to the game.
Thoroughly enjoyed playing this game.
It kept me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next. Quite a surprise ending.
