Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders
Read a book instead....
This game is full of long dialogue that cannot be clicked to speed up. Clicking skips the whole dialogue and sometimes entire scenes. I've been trying to get through this game when I have nothing else to play for months. Still can't do it.

Disappointing follow up to Dorian Grey
This is a slow, boring follow up to the excellent Dorian Grey (the games are unrelated). Lonely Hearts Murders starts off with an interesting premise, but the gameplay is interrupted by so many long, dull, and overly melodramatic animated cut scenes that it feels more like an (terrible) interactive animated film than a HOG. The puzzles were too easy, my inventory barely ever got over 5 items, and the map isn't interactive, so there was a LOT of running about. The animation and graphics were fine, but the storyline was so sluggish that the otherwise disappointing ending was actually a relief. There are too many better games on BF to waste your time with this one. Keep looking.

It moved very slow. The map does not allow you to travel. It makes you go from one side of the map to the other for random things. The visuals are great, but that wasn't enough to capture my attention. I didn't even finish the game because I was bored.

Too much talking
Agree with many others--too much dialogue. This wouldn't be a problem if you could just read it, but the only option is to listen to the whole thing or skip entirely. Also, at times you have to click repeatedly on a character to get all of the story. Finally, the game wasn't very challenging (based on the first hour trial).

Worst Sequel Ever!!!
I was giddy with joy when I saw this sequel to my beloved "Brink of Consciousness" but I felt gutted after playing the Trial version.
This game is a waste of time and money!!!
It has nothing of the previous game, the protagonist are yapping around for ever ( I had to shut down my sound system for I couldn't stand it any more)
An what's worse "Mass hidden object"-games;
Senseless seeking for some (not-game-related) garbage in a big heap of more garbage in the most unlikely of settings...not my idea of a good time!
I'm just glad I was sane enought to get the trial before purchase, I would have hated myself for spending money on this game.

Am I playing a game or watching a movie?
By far one of the worst games of this genre that I've played in a long time. There are more cut scenes than game play and when you are playing what little game there is, it's far too easy. I don't usually review games but this one was so bad I had to say something.

Like Wearing a Leash......
This game led you around the entire time. You went to numerous sites to do one thing and back and forth through those scenes again even when you were not doing anything. There was too much dialogue that was boring.. I kept playing thinking it would get better. Not worth paying for it at any price.

Maybe a good game but the screen was too small so I quit after 5 minutes. On a laptop, with no option to change to widescreen, the game was stretched from top to bottom. There are too many games like this.

One of the worst
Bogged down by too much dialogue. Worst purchase I ever made, especially for CE, Just plain boring.
