Nightfall Mysteries: Asylum Conspiracy
I bought this game after becoming a BFG game, so it's my first 'asylum' theme game. It was OK, the voice over is not bad. I find there's a lot of backtracking in this game, too much actually. I don't like the voice over of the small girl, sounds so snobbish. Characters seem lack personality. The puzzles are OK, not too difficult and the game length is fine. But I wasn't much too impressed with this game that I didn't buy the sequel (black heart).

Spooky HOG, not as good as "Curse" though
It appears I'm in the minority here. I liked Curse of the Opera waaaaay more than this one, in fact that one is one of my top favorite games. "Asylum" as a stand alone isn't bad, but when you try to mash up the storylines together to make sense of them...they don't. In "Asylum", they seemingly retconned the pasts of the characters from "Opera". They never mention even once about meeting each other in an asylum and saving each other. In "Opera", they say they met during their travels with gypsies and the like and found out they had something in common and decide to take revenge for what was done wrong to them. In "Asylum" they act like they don't remember anything that had happened to them and we get this crazy "evil doctor" story. Um...what? It just lacked the suspense and mysterious feel that "Opera" had.
As far as gameplay goes, everything's fine. It was just the story that I didn't like, since it didn't add up with events that were told in the first game. I believe there is going to be a 3rd game to this series and I can only hope that it is better than this one.
Do I recommend it? Yeah, but only if you think of it as a standalone and not part of a series.

I thought I would buy this one since I liked Black heart so much. I was wrong. This really isn't a very good game. I am glad I got it with free credit. This is a very dated game in the graphics department. A lot of the visuals were grainy and dark. There also was a lag after clicking. Didn't play much of the game because I was just not having any fun with it. The HO games were just to hard to see and they looked second rate. Sorry, I know this is a earlier game, but it really just didn't enthuse me.

not creepy enough
I thought : Asylum, great, it will be creepy like FACES, well I hoped, but no ! Walking endlessly trough that asylum was not scary at all and certainly not creepy ! Too bad it could have been great if the main character was not so Disney like.
It was not dirty and damaged enough, just abandoned in a very clean way.....Too bad !

Unoriginal, Annoying, Demons
Based on Completed Game
I'm not going to say much more than my review title. This game was way too easy. It holds your hand all the way through as if you lack any intelligence whatsoever. The story is tired and executed in a very plodding fashion. The graphics are drab, the music irritating and the mini puzzles are way too easy. The map is useful but not a jump map.
Also, I do not like to play games with demons, pentagrams, etc. I find those themes offensive. But beyond all of that, it's just boring. VERY boring.

I downloaded this game and Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera. This one was slightly better than Nightfall Mysteries: Curse of the Opera but still too difficult to keep my interests. I like challenging games but not when it takes 1/2 an hour to find objects in one scene.
