I read reviews on games that don't offer an hour to try it out like the Large File games. The review I read on this game claimed they just 'couldn't walk away from it'. I played 15 min..then walked away. In my opinion this game was very difficult to use interface i.e. pick up objects, know what to do with it, getting from point A to point B and you have to read way to much to figure out the puzzles. It felt more like I was assigned a school report instead of a relaxing game.

Horrible, Boring, I Hated It
I got this game because the sequel looked good and I wanted to start with the first one. I hated it. Although, there is no trial option on this one, I won't play a game on here again without a trial. This is probably just not my type of game. I still have a headache from playing it. Its just boring. Lots of walking back and forth trying to figure out what to do. Why would I use a dead beaver as a holder for a funnel? There was very little I could figure out without the walkthrough. Very few puzzles. Lots of long dialogue and reading assignments. It just wasn't fun and I was not impressed by the graphics. I have lost interest in the sequel now even though people that did not enjoy this game liked the sequel. The most annoying thing about this game was that if you did not click certain pieces of information you had viewed, it did not register that you had the information and let you go to the next step. So I was just wandering around trying to figure out what I missed. I agree with the other reviewer that said she plays these games to relax, not to pull her hair out.

Attractive visuals and music; that's the only good thing I can say. It's not intuitive what to do at any step, and there's no help if you get stuck. After obtaining the combination to a lock, then when I selected the lock, the game just said "closed" and gave me no opportunity to enter the code. Nevertheless, I found the storyline to be one-dimensional and not worth continuing. Worst game I've played at BFG.

Not a hidden image game! L A M E !!!!
I searched large file games and it was listed with things like Ravenhurst. Not even close. Very slow moving game. Van Helsing walks slowly everywhere with no short cuts and plenty of revisiting the same scene over and over. Super droll dialogue. Plenty of reading! There was no guide to maneuver through items, menus or anything. If you didn't move your mouse exactly right during certain mini games, you could not proceed, even if you were doing the right thing. Stupid game, paid for it, so I finished... only with a lot of help from youtube. I actually uninstalled this game I was so irritated by it. Don't waste your time!!!!!

A pity I spent money on this
Tedious and a pain. I wish this had a free trial so that I could have saved my money.
