Nocturnal: Boston Nightfall
Let them stay in the dark
Too much reading and really boring. I didn't even complete it.

I didn't enjoy this game at all :(
and the comicstrip style dialogue scenes, not my thing.The same mini game over and over, a very simple one at that,was redundant.
I'll pass thanks, without even finishing the trial

Crude comic book style, wishes it was hip. Meh.
The story is convoluted and only comes out in drips and drabs, so you start out with no idea what's going on. After playing a bit, this only gets marginally better. Characters are very shallow and the romance is forced. The nightclub scenes and disco-dolly outfits try to adopt an edgy, hip flavor but don't succeed. The drawing is so crude that characters aren't really recognizable from one comic book-style panel to the next.
You can gain hints through game play, and rack up quite a few. The game play is only so-so. The hidden object scenes are a complete mess, and not that much fun.
Buy it on sale, if at all.

Beginner's Game At Best
I just replayed this game. I have to admit my game skills have improved since I bought this game a couple of years ago. It is repetitious and not that hard but good for picking away at when you aren't up for something more challenging. It would be good for a new player looking to learn HOG's.

Go To Sleep Instead
Realizing that hidden object games have really developed since this game was released, at the end of the day, it's still pretty bad. The vampire storyline is the best thing this game has going for it, and it is well done...playing through to the end, your only reward will be the twist ending.
As to gameplay, where to begin? You'll be doing a bunch of hidden object scenes (including some of real places, which was a nice touch# and they are junkpile style. Objects will be sized randomly, so you'll find the Statue of Liberty and a hairpin at the same size, which is disconcerting and rather silly. You'll have little difficulty completing these scenes in the time allotted, particularly since chaining several items in a row will result in a time bonus.
In addition to that, you'll play three simple minigames that are all pretty bad. One is a matching game, one is a "Simon" type color puzzle, and the other is picking colors in sequence. None of them are hard, and it wouldn't matter anyway since you'll have a stockpile of hints just from completing the standard HO scenes. Fortunately, you can skip them #and not bother collecting hints#, as they are all too frequent and completely monotonous. They simply exist to draw out the game.
Sound is rather techno and grating; it wasn't the worst I've heard but nothing to write home about. Cutscenes are storyboarded comic-style. You'll get a lot of them; this game plays more like a Twilight graphic novel. Good idea, but terrible execution. In addition, not scary at all considering the subject matter. You'll wish you were asleep.

This was a game that was offered cheap when I bought another game, and now I wish I had not purchased it. I played it only about 10 minutes and it was annoying and repetitive. Do not get this game!

Its my favorite game
The game starts off with a Gothic feel and graphics that help set the mood. Each level was beautifully designed so that each time you replay it you are not redoing the same search list but instead there are many different objects that you may be asked to find. Also there is a 4 minute time limit per stage adding a nice challenge. When looking for an object you must think about it in every way you can be cause they made it so you may be looking for one thing but you would of never of guessed it looked differently like finding a bat can mean an animal or a sport tool. The objects are placed in a surreal way making you look i can say honestly that this is my favorite game yet in any console or genre i have beat the game over 6 times and still play.

Not worth time let alone money. Graphics are nonexistent, sound terrible, all HOS are dim, and the minigame of a simon type board is monotonous.

I played for not even 10 minutes. Don't buy this game!! Don't even bother playing for 60 min.

Small objects and short story line
I had a hard time on some the hidden objects because they were very small... I enjoyed the story line and was sad to see it end so quickly.
