Trapped: The Abduction
I was immediately hooked by the story. It reminded me of the Saw series (which I'm not a huge fan of). I loved the lines from the kidnapper (the first time I heard them) and I liked Helene's attitude. Unfortunately there was a lot of material set up that never really paid off and the ending wasn't satisfying.
The graphics are nice but the gameplay is enough to pull you out of the experience. You're unable to pick up an item until the game adds it to the list even if you know that the item is needed for the present puzzle. It feels a like your hand is being held by someone that thinks you're younger than you are.
I got to a place where Helene stated that an item was needed but I couldn't get the game to add it to the list for me to pick up. Add to that an annoying night-vision segment, the kidnapper repeating lines, and the hint button's annoying habit of pointing out the task instead of the item that would help with the task and game play slows to a crawl in places.
And when you're slowed down you begin to wonder why she's putting things together instead of jumping out a window. Overall, it's a pretty good story but with the gameplay frustrations I'd suggest giving it a pass unless you're a hardcore fan of this type of story.

A wasted opportunity
I bought this after reading the plot on the back of the game in the shop.I thought it sounded really interesting, a girl gets abducted and she has to find a way to escape. I quickly realised that is was actually rather dull and repetitive. The game is not scary and the abductors voice is laughable!The ending is abrubt and offers the player no answers at all.
A real let down!

Sorry but this game is not for me; it was most enoying that U had to click on to an object before U do something with it AND there is NO escape from the rooms worse than that I had to keep using the Hint button DOU;;;;

disturbing sadistic male fantasy
this cant even be called a game-it has a terrible story line, cliched script, and seems very lazy as if some 15 year old boy letting his fantasies run wild one afternoon. im extremely disappointed-shouldnt be as expensive as other games as its clearly nowhere near as good. i honestly dont think i have ever played a worse game. plus, it made me feel physically ill whenever the male character would appear, or speak-there is a fine line between an abduction game and a virtual reality for rapists to get their kicks. this game really overstepped the mark. it took ages between phrases spoken so i had to spend alot of time just waiting around and the objectives were ridiculous. i didnt like a thing about it

Waste of time.
For the first time I've downloaded a game I couldn't even stand to play through the entire demo. Everything about this game was just bad...
