Christmas Stories: A Christmas Carol
I enjoyed it to a point .... then I felt Scrooged
I enjoyed the cut scenes, the graphics were pretty good but not great nor consistent at all. The music was nice in the very beginning. The puzzles were inconsistent and either very average a few were cute and unique actually. So, when I had a spare credit hanging around I purchased it; I decided I would accept the game as a childish themed, mixed up Dickens type of game and purchased it as a SE and was ok with it despite my original review of the CE until I got to the point where things were just getting way too off the wall, not even a storyline and so much spoon feeding I was choking!
WHY an oceanographic themed game in the nave along with an obvious mast head of a SHIP, along with Santa Claus holding his own birthday cake; I mean, even in a remotely nightmarish game, what would include those things and more pointedly, what would they be doing in the church along with a boar's head and a smithy (in the "belfry")... ??~! How about a town hall or a blacksmith shop?! Again, it appears to be laziness or ? on the Developer's part.
Truly... I do understand the reviews of the game if one played to a certain point... beyond that?? Oh my gosh... this is one messed up "Christmas" story. It is totally ridiculous and incredulously out of line with anything "Christmas" themed.. really and truly!? Other than the snow and decorations and a few cut scenes, this was an awful Christmas story and not enough challenge or substance to pan out as a true game... I don't care WHAT the other reviews are giving it, I gave it two chances and I say thumbs waaaaay down.
Do your homework and try again Devs. :)

A real downfall
Contrary to the first part this one is really bad storywise.

The Little Tim's doll that goes on the chest is bugged. I already got the legs, joined it to the torso and put it in the right position but the game tells me it is not right and I can't continue to play if I don't get that doll to open the chest. So for selling a bugged game, you get 1 star.
