Nightfall Mysteries: Asylum Conspiracy
Not too bad...
Had a harder time trying to find hidden objects than I did trying to figure out what to do next. But that was a good thing. Wasn't overly frustrated with having to complete the game "linearly," it seemed pretty easy to intuit what to do/where to go in order to move the game along.

Good from begining to end
Well since I started this trilogy at the end with Black Heart, I have now played the first and had all the questions answered. This is a well done game with great visual and storyline. Just the right amount of HO scenes and medium difficulty puzzles. Definately worth playing!

Not as good as Black Heart
Same story line, but the characters not as well defind, and the game not as sophisticated as Black Heart. Lots of HOS, and not easy to see, had to use magnifying glass a lot. Liked the tapes, but the game was pretty short.

Good game but not more
I was not impressed of graphic, it seemed to be blurred sometimes in the HO scenes. The plot is a little far-fetched or forced. The riddles are interesting, but some of them are monotonous. The final chord with Victor was false in my opinion. But the general effect is good, but not more. As a plus: many HO scenes, audio cassettes stories and background music.

Much much better than Curse of the Opera
This one did not have that Annoying music in background that distracted you. Better, crisper Hogs, All in all just better done and enjoyed alot. If they had it as a CE I probably would have bought it on this one. After downloading the third one to this series I downloaded and started playing the first one, now the second and then will play the new one I bought. I played the others so long ago I wanted to start from the beginning of the story.

pretty good but not hard enough
the first game in a series of 3( so far), it's a little rough but a good game. I played Curse of the Opera first ( and I like that game better) so it was a little hard to make the stories mesh. There is only 1 level of play which was disappointing. Dislike how you can't turn off the annoying music or the voices (if you unclick the voiceover tab you still get voices). lots of good hidden object scenes, plot a little disjointed but okay. Could have been creepier. Again too much leading you by clues, but worth playing.

Could do better...
characters are cute, storyline is awesome. the only reason it lost a star is the fact that it just DOESN'T MATCH THE STORY FROM THE FIRST PART.
overall, if you disregard all the HUGE gaps between the two stories, it's a fantastic game. I hope for more!

This is the 1st game iv finished with out using a hint.
Great little game worth a look

Really a good game if somewhat outdated now, and quite long with many chapters. There seems to be about an equal number of HOS and mini-games. The hint button refills quickly; however, you'll have time to get a drink of water and go to the bathroom while waiting for the skip button to fill.
There is a lot of back and forth. The map is helpful, but not interactive. You pick up cassette tapes (remember those?) as you play the game. I didn't listen to any of them, so I don't know what information they contain or if they would've been helpful. The journal records any codes you will need, but isn't much help otherwise. The hints outside of the HOS are almost no help. I relied on the map more than the hints.
The story is fascinating, and there are other interesting characters who need your help or who are helpful to you, which is a real plus as far I'm concerned. The artwork is excellent.
If the map were interactive, I'd give it five stars, but as it is not, I can only give it four.

Good game, didn't realize 'Opera' is the prequel. Didn't get that one but did get the one prior. (Remembered that story when the play was mentioned at the end of this game)
Interesting storyline, gory enough.
Not a great love for the tapes, slows game down. No necessary info given.
Have map, which is needed, but does not help get you around. So lots of back and forth.
Always love the puzzles and minis, these were very good!!
DO NOT love HO scenes and there were way too many for me!!
Thomas got on my last nerve; he is the inspector and had me doing all the work; he could have at least helped!! (smile)
Fun game, great if you like HOs. Recommend for HO fans!
