Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches
Hard but not impossible
Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches was the second large file game I played. I got stock several times but I wanted to know the end of the story and see more of the amazing graphics, so I went to look for a walkthrough in the web. I found very nice sites that have free step by step help so you are able to continue the game. YouTube have many BFG walkthrough videos step by step so you don't have to stop playing the game you pay for and want to see the end of it.
I bought so far 444 games, played about 250 and never ever had to stop playing a game because I couldn't find the next step in the web. I look for help until I found the answer and then I continue by myself. If I feel stock again I go look for the next step but I never gave up any of the beautiful and amazing Big Fish Games.

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!!

Creepiest First Person Adventure
This game was genuinely creepy to play. Things jump out at you and you will be startled several times. However, it was fun and challenging with a great storyline that I enjoyed.

Wow, what an amazing story!
Just finished it... The best $2.99 i've ever spent on a game! Rhiannon was a real joy to play! Very long game play! The story line and puzzles/objectives were absolutely amazing! Some of the objectives have fairly complicated associations, and I found it necessary to use a walkthrough at several points during the game. Technically, it wasn't the best, as it uses a lot of outdated gameplay that many of the newer games have surpassed. Has some bugs, and i agree with some of the other comments regarding navigation. It could have been better developed. Regardless, this game takes you on an amazing journey!

Complex and Lengthy!
While many games seem to rush you through to the end, Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches doesn't do that.
Settle in for a long while for this game - it is very lengthy, even if you resort to some walk-throughs.
The frustrating part for me was being able to pick up an object, but not be able to put it inventory until you were close to needing it. That meant literally writing notes about where I saw something - otherwise, four hours later I was searching every area again!
The story line involves a lot of old Welsh legends, and while it is important to the game, you don't have to immerse yourself in tons of reading on background history and lore to keep moving forward in the game.
The pace of the game is slower than many adventure games currently out. This allows the necessary time to explore and discover things; No one is tied up and about to die if you don't hurry and find that clue like some games. You are also not going to interact with other people - it's just you, the farmhouse, outbuildings on the property, and lots of acreage and tree groves to root through.
There are no hints or help, other than your task notebook. It IS helpful to keep your own notes in a real life notebook, as I mentioned earlier.
This game was what I had been looking for: complex, well-thought out and very lengthy!

Good story, nice mystery, not easy, must like details
Rhiannon is my first big file adventure and so I gave myself time to get the hang of it. I got better at it by "Chapter Earth" It is comprised of an intro and 4 chapters. Walking your character through the game- you never see your character in the mirrors in the game at the sinks and running water- There is no reason for this - you just don't. There is must reading of three diaries and a recipe and letters and two books on trees and reports on land purchase and floride not in water and others- picking up magazes read those covers- in this game Some of everything you read will matter and a lot will not but read it and over time the game lets you pick up AND inventory- But it is a clue just to pick things up before you inventory them- look at the objects and Think about the game and where it logically leads to. The game is mostly logical but not always linear 1,2,3 but can be 2,1,7,8- I mean the way it progresses - NOT enough- music- sound effects- long streaches of no sound effects while you are Walking around- The creators of this game should fix that.The Walkthrough helps online are often wrong about moves in this game- Some say that the three stones when combined are a map of where to go in game to find next place/thing, but it is NOT a map- clue- look at the roman numerals--And also, Finding the claw is one of the trickiest multi task moves in this game- read all pages and sometimes just go back and flip through and don't forget to visit Rhiannon's computer to look for new messages/attachments throughout the game, It will not tell you to. Feed the cat and flush the rodents- The first letter says to feed the cat- I think it moves the game along- Revisit places new things will activate even to just pick up- and piano notes-have pad mk notes

Was worth the Money
This is definitely a unique game. While it does have a tendency to drag, all in all a Rhiannon was worth the time. It does get complicated sometimes so a walkthrough really helps a lot. I play a lot of adventure, first and third person games, and for a first person game, this was worth the money...any higher price and I would pass.
