The Celtic legend of Dire Grove has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Considered a fairytale, its telling was meant to frighten small children into staying in their beds through the night. A recently unearthed artifact in the United Kingdom, however, proves the dark legend to be true! Use your wits and Hidden Object talents to follow the trail of a group of missing graduate students in Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove!

Amazing It really is a flawless game with challenging puzzles and superb storyline, graphics and sound. I really felt like I was in the game, and could feel the chill of the blizzard. Can't say enough about this game. You will need the walkthrough at some point when you get stuck, but if you can get through it without peek, hats off to you! April 2, 2012
Exciting Adventure This is probably my favorite Mystery Case Files game. The plot and storyline was intriguing and kept my interest. I really enjoyed the videos, and I thought they were very well done. The HOS are relatively challenging, but not impossible. The mini games are varied and there were ones I'd never played before. The graphics are very good, and the music stays unobtrusively in the background. Some things to be aware of. No map and there's nothing in the game play that gives clues to figure out the mini games like some games have. Sometimes, it was difficult to know where to go next, and what item in the inventory to use. There are also some items that have dialog boxes but aren't used. The game can be kind of spooky at times, but not as dark as others I've played. One extra thing I liked is that you can change the attitude of the messages when you try using the wrong inventory item. I chose snarky, but you can choose other attitudes. This game is very enjoyable, and probably even worth the extra money for the CE (though I only have the SE). March 29, 2012
Love, Love, Love, Love This Game I really thought I was gonna have difficulty at first without the strategy guide at my disposal, but I didn't need it. I had to do a little more searching between areas to maneuver my way around, but I made it through in about 3 1/2 hours total. (not at one time) It was an awesome game, love the graphics, sound, story line ......everything! I am not an expert by any means, but I enjoyed the challenge. I recommend this game! It was well worth the cost! March 27, 2012
Bought the game and glad i did This was a great story and lots of fun.. Wish i knew where to get the music. March 6, 2012
Another great game! I was pleasantly surprised with this one! I didn't think I would like the story at all until I got into the game. I found it to be very intriguing. The HOGS were perfect, not too hard but not too easy.The graphics are top notch and amazing!! It was a very good (LONG) challenging game; it didn't disappoint me in the least. MCF has really done it again with another captivating game with twists and turns that keep you going until the very end. March 4, 2012
Reminds me of movie This story follows Return To Ravenhearst. It even says it in your journal log when you start which I liked. The story was done in an interesting way. Much like the Blair Witch movie with all the video logs. I would have liked to see the bloopers at the end of the game like they did on Return To Ravenhearst, but other than that I really liked this game. February 29, 2012
Dire Grove THIS is a game that really sucks you into its atmosphere. You get that feeling of being isolated all throughout the game which really increases the creepiness of the snowed-in village. The actors playing the grad students are amazing. I love watching the video clips of them because it's like watching a movie. Heck, the beginning of the game (where Master Detective is driving down the road in the car) LOOKS like a scene pulled straight out of a movie. It's that good. Love the whole game, one of my favorites. February 29, 2012
My all-time Favorite game I've played so far! I LOVED this game! It was very challenging, long, entertaining and fun. The storyline was very cool with the video enhancements - which kept you incredibly interested in what happened to the missing people. I looked forward to finding each new video tape! The graphics and scenes were gorgeous! It really made you feel like you were there, in the snow, cold, etc. The challenge level of this game is high, as there are many difficult puzzles, tasks, things to find. (I had to look at the blog walk-through about 2 or 3 times) ;-) I honestly did not want this game to end - and to my surprise and delight - it did last a long time. You were never locked out of old scenes and there was some back and forth - which I actually really like. Great game - highly recommend! I can't wait for another Mystery Case Files game!

Brilliant! I must say hats off to the developers of this fantastic game, i couldn't tell you the amount of games i have played, but very few if any come close to Dire Grove. Not are the graphics outstanding, the storyline is engaging, Great sound...and very creepy. Can be quite challenging in parts, with lots of areas to explore...i could go on about this game...but all i can really say if you haven't yet tried this game, hit the Download Button NOW!

Chilling Fun! This is one of the better games I have played. In fact, best. The story line was good, graphics just superb. Kept me engrossed, couldn't wait to get back to it. I have now played it twice & will probably play it again. February 23, 2012
