Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches
THE GAME I'VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR
Funny enough, I bought and downloaded this game over two months ago and played it for an hour and decided I hated it. The navigation was impossible, the scenes dull and boring, the story completely elusive to me. Then my sister happened upon it on my laptop and INSISTED I play it with her. Grumbling through the first hour with her, I finally realized how to play it and OMG what a FANTASTIC game it is! We stayed up 2 days just playing as it is nearly impossible to stop once you get rolling. It is everything that the standard HOG's aren't. I'll never be able to play another HO game now that I've discovered this genre.
This type of game is very reminiscent of the Zelda games on Nintendo. Very few hints and lots and lots of THINKING. Love Love Love it.

If you enjoyed Myst....
I just finished this game and was completing blown away by it. A great change from HOS. You really needed your thinking cap and a few helpful hints. I couldn't stop playing it and it lasted longer than most games. I just had to tell someone.

Really loved this game. Great graphics, kinda spooky, not too easy, but also not so hard that it requires walkthrough to complete. Really a great game all around. Only kinda weird thing...the music at the very end. Didn't seem to go with the rest of the game. Not a biggie though.

Rhiannon is fantastic.
This is a fun game. A little like a good book, you will find yourself thinking about it even when your not playing. Trying to figure out what needs to be done next.

A dark themed game without the dark, dreary graphics
This is an excellent large file/adventure game. It takes a lot of thinking to get through this game but the story and graphics and sound make it worthwhile. There are no hidden objects in this game so if that's what you're looking for get another game or try this game for a change of pace. See how good your adventure skills are without sparkles and hints.
There are no mingames in this one but there are many puzzles to figure out.
Graphics and sound are fresh and clear. Navigation can be challenging but there is a map to help you out and save a lot of running around by transporting you to other places.

Sad it's over....
Just finished playing this game. Wonderful! Lasted for days with many twists and turns and a great storyline. I would have liked less clues form the notepad and a few solutions were a bit of a stretch but other than that -- so much fun!

Loved this game so much, it took me ages to solve the puzzles and the story line is definitely intriguing and keeps you wanting to know what happens next!

More games like this please.
This is the best Big Fish game I have played so far, 'Dire Grove' being a very close second. At last a proper adventure game with a proper story, not a load of hidden object scenes and click puzzles 'tied' together by a lame plot #the developers of this game must have really been interested in what they were doing#. I really felt like I was 'playing a story'. The game whilst challenging is not very difficult, most of the puzzels are fairly logical to work out and I only had to cheat once and I kicked myself when I found the answer #if you think this game is hard then you should try some text adventures for the ZX Spectrum#. There has been some criticism of the navigation in this game and although it seems a bit awkward at first it is totally logical and not really a problem when you have got used to it. Apparently the developers of this game were working on another game called 'Coven' but unfortunatly were unable to finish it which is a real shame because we need more games like this!!

This was the first game on big fish that I played. It was VERY difficult and INCREDIBLY interesting. I actually got my sister (who never played large file) to help me with this. She and I can hardly stand to play anything else now. Only advice I can give you is LISTEN. You never know when someone is going to stop by.

A Classic Adventure with an Excellent Story
A wonderful game to play. One of my top 5 favorites. You'll need to put on your thinking caps on for this game, but it will be so satisfying figuring out the different puzzles and exploring the different areas.
The compelling story in this game is really well thought out and the creep factor is just right. I enjoyed playing it very much.
