follows on from first story/game nicely.but still too short....
This is the 2nd game in the series (legacy being the first) and you need to have played that to understand what is going on in this game. As I said in the legacy review even though these are fairly recent games the developer has decided to go down the retro feel of very early 90s text style adventure games.
I thought the story here was good and there is slightly more to do than in the first game which was very easy if you are an experienced player. Here you have to remember to right click on things to get more information and hit the tab button to change characters. Writing down names is helpful as you then look it up in the phone directory at home. It's a manual save game which you get if you go into your inventory bar at top of screen (right hand side). It's still very straightforward if you are experienced as there are very limited locations, so you just go back and forth most of the time talking to people and trying combinations in your notebook (click on one item then another)
There are 3 ghosts to help - different chapters in the game but the first ghost is by way the longest - the 3rd is over so quickly.
I can't actively recommend the individual games as I feel there is a reason the games are being sold in a bundle elsewhere, this feels like a first chapter of a game. If all 3 games where joined together, I would have if you are looking for a very quirky (but not great quirky), different game and don't mind pixelated graphics that looks like it was made 20 years ago. But each game is SO short, I'm just getting into it when it's over.
I do like the addition of the 'bonus' features in this game - if you take bonus photographs at the beginning of the game at the end you get music unlocked amongst other things. The music especially in ghost 1 was very good.
When I say short this is over in less than 3hrs. Way less if you are very experienced.
I don't do love etc but try and be objective and do it out of 5 hence my 3 star rating.

Much like the other game, a disappointment
Much like the other game in the series, this game is a total disappointment. It promises great things but just cannot deliver. It is WAY too short and although the storyline is brilliant, it doesn't provide enough entertainment to be worth the money.
I honestly found it VERY easy so I'm not sure what that other reviewer is on about 'not progressing'

This game is way to old for the computers of today.
Yikes, BigFish needs to put the creation date some-where near the tile or spec's page. "Enough Said" Perhaps BigFish did not make enough money on this one so they are keeping it around a while. But if I did not know better and this game was one of my early purchases, I would be moving on to one of the other sites. out there. I really like Large-File games but wow are they hard to come by these days.

I tried 2 seperate times and Blackwell Legacy games when do u learn??
Yes I said that to myself both times I tried a Blackwell game. I am an astute learner with an higher than average IQ. To me that means squat if I make decisions like this 2 times then read reviews thinking of doing it a 3rd time. Thank you other reviewers I've been saved.
Oh, and I do understand about loss of game progression, when u play this game u have a lot of repeating to do, annoying.
