Lake House: Children of Silence
A good SE
I demo'd the CE but it didn't grab me enough so waited for this version then bought it.
It is a good SE as my review title says....fun to play, nice graphics and good story. I would probably have given it 5 stars if the puzzles and HOs had been a bit more challenging.

Well done but a bit gloomy
I liked this game from the start...and then I hit a snag with a puzzle and got stuck. There are only a few game walkthroughs online, but I finally figured out the puzzle. This developer always makes good games, and there is a solid storyline here that kept me playing for a good 5 hours. There is a map but it's not interactive. The HINT button refreshes very quickly and there are lots of scenes and good HOS scenes as well. You move around the scenes to figure all of the puzzles, which are also good. The game has good graphics, but because of the storyline is a bit gloomy. I'd still recommend it, but there are some better games of this genre.

This is the first game I've played in quite a while that felt worth the money.
Everything is nicely done, not too many HOS, 14 chapters, and if you don't rush, you can play for a good 5-6 hours or maybe longer.
Overall, a satisfactory gaming experience.

Overall, a very fun game but not challenging enough in the "expert" version. If the game had a few chapters and the mini games more challenging it would've hit a home run. #2013#

Good story, creepy, lots of places
Lots of places to explore, objects to obtain, and a very good story line that was actually worth watching cut scenes. The graphics were very realistic and music was good. Only complaint would be the puzzles were way too easy, often finished in a matter of seconds. Over all a good play, and would recommend

I liked this one, mostly for the creepy storyline. The graphics were very good, as was the HOS. There is a map, though not interactive to those who need that. The objects in your inventory are very easy to figure out, so the hint wont be used much. I hope another comes out! Happy gaming gamers!!

The gm was enjoyable;however I can't believe you had a pic of a dead whale They were hunted I know, but so majestic.

Graphics are just ok, nothing great & colorful which I prefer. HOGs are typical, some hard, some not. I do not listen to audio - too many games are just dreary or sluggish So I'm just learned to play without it..
There is a great deal of moving back & forth which often is ok in some games but here there is No understanding (at least to me) of why and what to do next. I'm using Hint much too often.
I can also only stand to play about 15 min. at a time - I keep playing because I bought it....
I realize there is a story here but I don't get a lot of it in playing the game.

Could Have Been a Great Game
I tried this game and love the story line, but the graphics was just awful. Very Out dated. If they fix this with clear, sharper graphics I would buy this in a heartbeat. Sorry but this is how I feel.
