This series involves very challenging puzzles. I am addicted to these types of games. I can guarantee you will not want to stop the game once started.

Dark story and atmosphere I liked the gameplay.
I enjoyed playing the game though its atmosphere was a bit disturbing to my sensitive soul. It did manage to get to me, I think they did a good job trying to scare people with this story. there is a tendency to show girls in distress in games lately, don't know why they can't find a better direction, I got hooked not because the idea of saving this girl but because I love playing hidden objects games. Remember, It is not based on a true story so it people just play and have fun.
The graphics are OK, the music is dark just like the whole concept of this game, hidden objects and puzzles kept me hooked to this game, I was impressed I went ahead and got the sequel as well.

Don't Listen To The Others, This Is Great!
Despite all the bad reviews, the synopsis of this game appealed to me, so I decided to give it a spin. I?m so glad I did, because I really enjoyed my trial!
The storyline or rather, storylines was what kept me going. The gruesome details of each case really appealed to me. I?m really into crime and things similar, so this was a really decent story. It?s nice to see that developers are taking us gamers who like this sort of stuff in to consideration. As the synopsis warns: This game is for mature audiences, so do not let your children near this game. I must also add that I really liked the intro, and found myself replaying it time and time again.
The gameplay was very simplistic and varied, which I really enjoyed. The puzzles were as follows:
? Standard HOS
? HOS where you had to find a large group of one certain item
? Grid puzzles
? Shadow HOS
? Anagram Puzzles
While the majority of these puzzles were easy, they still provided great enjoyment to me, especially the Anagram Puzzles. I found myself implying strategies for the harder ones such as the grid puzzle, but I would eventually get them done.
The graphics need a bit of improvement, but overall they were clear. Nothing troubled me visually and the artwork was well done, with the exception of a few grainy scenes.
- Hints. You start off with about 2 hints and you build that up by finding roses in each scene. (there are 2 to collect)
- Diary. The Diary is your main collector of evidence, and it is referred back to constantly, both from Rose?s POV and the Detectives.
Overall, I must say that I disagree with the general opinion because I really enjoyed this game. Although I got through 4 cases in the trial and I still had 12 minutes to go, I?m not sure about the length. I definitely recommend, and think I may buy this with a coupon.

Scary Psycho Game
One of the first games I purchased. The games were challenging and scenes were disturbing, but enjoyed because there was a good feeling at the end of game. Not a game for kids.

SUBJECT MATTER IS SENSITIVE
A dark and intriguing psychological thriller about Rose, who has a supernatural power. But her parents are in conflict about that power ? is it a sickness or a gift? Dr. Fraud?s goal is to take advantage of Rose?s gift to separate all the money he can from Rose?s father. Victims of murder befriend Rose as she uses her gifts to assist her detective uncle in solving the murders.
Well-paced story told through parents? e-mails, detective?s notebook, diary and doctor?s memos. Rich intense graphics. 2 modes: relaxed and timed. Set music, sound effects and visual quality levels to your specs. Wide variety of HOS and puzzles. Each HOS/puzzle contains 2 hidden roses to collect for additional hints. HOS and puzzles are very visible, so you won?t need many hints to solve them. Easy to pick up at any point in the game. Good to see Dr. Fraud got what was coming to him, though he must get out of it since there?s a sequel.

Not as good as I thought it would be
I played the sequel to this game Redrum: Time Lies and really liked it. I was disappointed in this one. It's much easier and the story just fell flat.
It's not for the squeemish. It involves a phsychiatrist who goes insane and uses humans as test rats.

I ran the demo, and I will not be buying it. The storyline wasn't intriguing at all. I found the tile matching more difficult than it warranted. I did not like how it asked for objects on the screen and there were plenty of those objects. For example, the list would say 'books', and yet there were 3 piles of books in the scene. Worth a demo download to see if it fits your style, but I would not recommend buying this game.
