Dark Manor: A Hidden Object Mystery
Dark Manor: Nope..... not in the 'manner' I enjoy playing....
My immediate and first impression of this game was that the load times between screens were appallingly slooooow [not my internet connection; I have fiber optics wired and it is oober fast].
As far as the game itself? To put it bluntly, I didn't enjoy it at all; in fact, it annoyed me utterly and completely and it basically felt like a complete neon nightmare. Even at Halloween Dark Manor: A Hidden Object Mystery would give me bothersome nightmares during the day (!) and not because of any type of creepy appeal because it didn't have that. I say this because to me, it was just plain incredibly garish and grungy in it's combined effort... it's colors, characters, mode of play, and storyline [can one really call this a storyline?]
In addition, I certainly wouldn't want to do any social networking via "Dark Manor..." I believe the name itself rather holds the answer to the statement as to why, along with all the other lack of quality I've mentioned.
All in all, I have had more gratification paying bills than I had playing "Dark Manor: A Hidden Object Mystery".. which is to say I disliked the experience in every respect and it held no sense of satisfaction or reward whatsoever, something I can at least say I have after paying bills. :] Speaking of bills, this game I have no way of knowing up front just how much it's going to cost; I don't appreciate that whatsoever.
Bottom line, this game is a total NOPE, no way, no how for me and I truly can not see any appeal to continue playing this mix mash of annoyance; it's certainly not my idea of a 'game'.
No offense meant to anyone enjoying it.... please continue doing so and I advise you keep an eye on your wallet, and, uh, don't look for my name, 'cause it won't be in 'this' manor.

I've never tried to play a game that had absolutely no instructions like this game. I stuck for about 10 minute trying to figure it out and then just gave up. Glad for the free trial though and just deleted it !!

Worst game I have played in several years. One of BF's top 5 money makers. Have your bank card on the ready when you d/l this. I hadn't played 10 minutes when the grubby paw came out. Don't just walk away from this game, RUN!!!!

I usually love hidden object games, but alas I could find nothing to even like about this game. It has no story line, no challenge, & really nothing to make it even remotely interesting. Maybe kids would like it, but I don"t really see them liking this game any better than I did.

Don't waste your time
I'm glad I tried this before I purchased it! This and Haunted Hotel were the Worst games I ever played. Unfortunately I assumed Haunted Hotel was as good as Haunted Hotel: Eclipse they were nothing alike. They're related or even in the same ballpark. Save your money.
