Ghost Town Mysteries: Bodie
Tedious and poorly done game
- Slow game,
- awful graphics,
- annoying sound,
- voice over incomprehensible.
- mini games are repeated
- HOS badly designed, objects really tiny and almost impossible to find.
Could not stand playing for more than 15 minutes

I Should Have Believed the Other Reviewers!!
I'm one of those people who will play a 1-Star or 2-Star game just to disprove that the game can't be THAT bad. However, I think Brodie Town is the game that will stop me from ever doing that again.
I actually played this one to the bitter end. It's not a long game (thank goodness# so I toughed it out in one sitting.
The storyline is actually not bad, but it goes downhill from there.
I had my monitor screen on the best resolution and still the entire game was dark, not only the HO scenes.
Objects in the HO scenes were small, fuzzy and sometimes not recognizable.
I had to gather flies #yuck) in order to get hints. Unfortunately, the flies blended right into the dark scenery which eventually made them impossible to find. Which means I never had an over abundance of hints.
There was the same dark tombstone puzzle to complete throughout the entire game and you could not skip it; otherwise you would not progress to the next level. Very frustrating to say the least.
This game had a lot of potential and I can think of several developers who would have done an awesome job with it. Unfortunately, Brodie Town developers totally missed the mark -- probably because it was so dark that they couldn't see it.

I enjoy a good ghost tale and I too like to disprove the 1 and 2 star games. But even for charity I could not last for more then 15 min. I like the green flashing light directing you to the next stage but the the items in the HOS were small and almost impossible to find with out help.

One of the worst games ever
Looked like a story that might be interesting, but the game is too dark and dreary. I couldn't even get past the first puzzle, putting a tombstone together. Pieces too similar and too many options with being able to turn them all different ways. Only could get two pieces. No way to skip it either.
Don't waste your time or money.

Bad graphics, impossible to find objects - there aren't many good things to say about this game. I will admit that I almost enjoyed the old-fashioned creepy ambiance of the game - it reminded me of watching old-fashioned horror movies when I was a child. However, that still did not justify the price I paid for the game.
I have to say that if Bigfish were to do a cull of their gaming library, I would probably put this one at the front of the queue.
