Jane Austen's: Estate of Affairs
This game was enjoyable but not the best. The storyline was pretty good. I ran into a glitch and the game froze up. Had to turn off the computer. Started over two more times with it doing the same thing in the same spot, had to turn off the computer each time. Finally uninstalled. Had to uninstall Game Manager in order to find the game, then reinstall. Aggravating to say the least. (Game Manager needs work. Not working like it used to.) After doing that I was able to finish the game. I recommend the game as far as the fun level, but the problems with the game made it too aggravating to give a real good rating.

I found the controls a bit hard ever so often. The (right) key would hardly fit into the keyhole, had to get the EXACT correct spot... among other things.
I really was looking forward to play this one, now I'll uninstall it even before time runs out.

So so kind of game
Game started out by blacking out for about five seconds before reappearing to allow me to play the game. The music was annoying and I turned it down and the voice overs went down also so I could hardly hear them speak.
I could not find a smooth flow or direction with this one. Had to use the hint button to figure out where to go next quite a few times. Also you had to be spot on for an item to work or you would think after two or three times you are in the wrong place with that item.
The story line was great. The voice overs were nice and the older art work I did not mind and like. I will recommend it only because I like the story.

Horrid Little Game
Boring. Dark. Inventory doesn't stay open all the time even when locked. Hated Uncle Albert's (or whatever his name was) little poetic clues. Everything about it is clunky and dark.

I couldn't get past the first level on easy. I couldn't seem to find the missing key even with the hints. It wasn't fun if you can't figure it out.

Don't waste your money!
Game leaves much to be desired. Slow, boring and not much fun at all.

15 mins in and already I don't like it. Regardless of other reviewers here saying the voice overs are good, I'm finding them horrible! They just sound like terrible false English voices.
Another peeve is how exact you have to be when clicking on something with an item to get it to register. The graphics are quite blurry. And the music...oh boy, it's like being left on hold on the phone with a really bad tape playing. I found myself using the hint button just to find where to go to next and what to do, vague. Not even going to finish it, there are much better games to be playing.
