Grim Facade: The Red Cat is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful game It isn't often that a game exceeds my expectations in all four ratings categories, but this one does. I enjoyed the mini-games, I loved the graphics, and it took several hours from start to finish, another big plus for me, lol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good game! I am a happy fishie! Just finished playing this game and I loved it. The best ERS game in a long time. I bought this SE version and I'm very glad I did. The great story ends in a good, rounded up way, and I don't feel I missed out on something. The extra bling wasn't much and didn't interested me. I recommend you try it and buy it. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Game Without Ghosts! This is posted after playing the entire game. I really enjoyed this game. I own most of this series and this one is the best by far. It was a joy to play. My only regret was not being able to play the whole game at one sitting, but the kids have to eat sometime.. :-) Graphics and sound were excellent. Voice overs were very well done and the music went perfectly with the action in the scene. I really enjoyed the level of challenge. The hidden objects were clear and yet well done. Some were relatively easy while others posed some thinking. Although there wasn't anything in the hidden objects we haven't seen before, they were varied in difficulty and exercise which kept my interest. The amazing thing was my ability to complete most all of the mini games. Not saying they were easy, but... well they must be if I did them. Nonetheless I did enjoy working them out. The ones I didn't do I just didn't understand what I need to do. As helpers you have the map, which was very valuable. It showed where there were things to do and transported. If I have one complaint it was it seemed it took the map quite a while to come up. As a part of the game there is a gizmo which collects memories and shows what happened in that place at an earlier date. Did a good job explaining the story. The story had me from the beginning and when the beast that had been wreaking havoc on the city was unmasked, I was taken by surprise. It is a great story and I don't usually rate them this high. Give the demo a try, but don't base your opinion solely on it. There is so much more to the game than that explained in the demo.I think you'll enjoy it as much as I did. No witches, goblins or things that go bump in the night should be enough reason to make this purchase. Maybe... just maybe if the developers get the idea we are tired of the supernatural they will make more like this.

Based on the demo....Another great game from the Grim Façade series....Music fine, good graphics and nice to choose difficulty levels of each puzzle....Puzzles are fun and imaginative too, btw....Even without strategy guide it's not hard to figure out what to do next.....Keep up the good work devs....Definite buy for me....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GRIM FACADE 9 IS A WELL-ENGINEERED UNIQUE ADVENTURE Grim Facade takes us back to Venice with this new installment, The Red Cat. Recently, a series of murders has been going on in town, with the killer announcing its victim by putting a Red Cat print on the victim’s front door. The Mayor has asked for your expertise when his son appears to be the target – can you catch this serial murderer and bring peace back to Venice? Grim Facade: The Red Cat follows an engaging storyline with stunning visuals. The art team at ERS-G has really stepped up their work with the studio’s recent releases, as the visuals in this game show no hints of fuzziness occasionally seen in ERS-G’s projects. ERS-G executed it in such a way that is both effective and entertaining. The fast-paced adventure is filled with interesting tasks to complete, and some of them can be quite tricky. Further, the puzzles are often complex and creative, and some are truly mind-blowing. The Red Cat also equipped you with a Memory Fragment Detector which allows you to replay what has happened in the location a few hours back. This improves your understanding of the storyline and gadget fans will appreciate this. The Collector’s Edition includes all the features expected from a HOPA by a leading developer; wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, a strategy guide, screensavers, collectibles, achievements, replayable hidden objects and replayable mini-games. No secret I am a BIG FAN OF ERS. I think this is one of the best Grim Façade games in the series. I urge first time player's to check out the series in it's entirety. Thanks Big Fish for continuing to offer beautifully bizarre games from these devs. •Grim Facade: Mystery of Venice •Grim Facade: Sinister Obsession •Grim Facade: Cost of Jealousy •Grim Facade: A Wealth of Betrayal •Grim Facade: The Artist and The Pretender •Grim Facade: Hidden Sins •Grim Facade: Monster in Disguise •Grim Facade: The Red Cat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AN AWARD WORTHY NEW GRIM FAÇADE We all know cats have nine lives, right? Well it looks like my once favorite developer is having a resurgence of its life with some of its recent games and just maybe this new Grim Façade The Red Cat is leading the way. If you fondly remember the “bunny team” from yesteryear, then you will be happy to know they are now alive and well and hopping right back into the winner’s circle. Returning to the roots of the first Grim Façade game you are once again in Venice and you’ve been called in by Mayor Ricci to investigate a series of murders where the only clue is a red cat imprint that is that is found at the scene of each crime. Mayor Ricci’s son received a red cat imprint and the mayor implores you to catch the culprit and save his son before it is too late. As has always been the case with this developer the graphics are excellent with terrific hand drawn scenes. The voiceovers are excellent and with a good sound track the scene is set for a wonderful mystery game. Many of the fundamental elements of the series are again found in this latest game since you will find coins that can be used to purchase items that will be needed to help with the case. There is also a gimmicky tool that will help you see remnants of the crime in retrospect as you investigate. The Red Cat is such a phenomenal game that I don’t want to give too much away since this is a game where discovering the puzzles and HOPS is something you should do for yourself. I will say that there is a very good variety in the puzzles and some of them are delightfully challenging or at least a bit above the norm. I think I enjoyed every element of this game when I tried the beta and knew that it would be one of those games that I would purchase without a second thought the minute it was released – and I did! This developer is known for not including a lot of extras in its CE version of games but in this case, it is a good deal if you happen to prefer the CE games. After this week’s release of a new Puppet Show game, fans of ERS now have a far better choice with the SE release of The Red Cat but this is only my opinion. I purchased the CE version of The Red Cat last month and enjoyed every minute of the game. Even though I think this is probably one of the better games we have had this year (hopefully a good warm-up for the holiday gaming season ahead), I suggest that you try the demo to see if Grim Façade The Red Cat is one you will enjoy as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ERS GAME STUDIOS HAS DONE IT AGAIN: GIVEN US ANOTHER FANTASTIC GAME AFTER COMPLETING THE DEMO ONLY: I haven't purchased many of the previous games in this series, except for one, "Grim Facade: Hidden Sins", but after playing this game, I will now have purchased two. This game simply 'blew me away'. HERE ARE MY PROS AND CONS PROS: 1. Excellent voiceover for the villain, and the introduction. The introduction sets the tone for the rest of the game. It has to grab our attention, and the voices used here will grab your attention. 2. The graphics are outstanding: clear, crisp, and the color palette appropriate and concise. 3. The music fits each scene nicely. 4. The HOS's are fun and on the easy side with your usual variety. 5. The mini-games/puzzles are challenging. You have the option of choosing between casual and hard. But they are usually completed in a 2-4 step process. The one that I found to be the most interesting is the 'lock' puzzle. You have to solve one puzzle before going on to the other three before the lock is opened. These puzzles (at least in the demo) provide you with some challenge while still giving you that fun factor as well. 6.Robotic spider: This spider is attached to the mayor's son. In order to save him, you have to get rid of the spider and this is not an easy task.You have to slide down sections of each leg to find the correct symbol that is displayed on his upper torso. This is the same for the other robotic 'creatures' that attach themselves to others in the game. This is an interesting addition that adds an extra challenge and adventure to the game. 7. Fragmented Memory Device: It sits in the lower left of your screen and lights up when you need to find memories of a particularly bad scene. You then trace it around the scene. When it gets close to a memory, it will bounce. But you have to be rather quick, as the memories tend to move around. After you've collected five (5) memories, what has happened in that scene replays itself. You also have a Cheshire-looking cat that appears, who is a rather funny talking cat. CONS The only 'bad' thing that I could come up with is having to collect coins, go visit 'the store', buy a specific item, then proceed to a particular scene where that object is needed to advance further into the game. Some people may like this, but IMO, I found it rather tedious. This game is an excellent addition to the Grim Facade series, perhaps the best. It has everything that you could possibly want in a game. ERS Games Studio has done another outstanding job. As always give the demo a try. Enjoy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from THIS ISN'T A VERY NICE KITTY I was actually on the fence with this game when it was first released, because I wasn't "blown away" by this latest edition in the Grim Facade series, like others were, Why? Because there's a lot of familiarities, same scenery in Venice, same style of graphics, similar characters, same voiceovers, same tasks, similar and all too familiar storyline, and above all, the same features of collecting coins (actually looting other people's coins) to buy inventory items, and the same prop, a Memory Fragment Detector to catch the same orbs. All I have to say is, surely they mass produced this device in order for all my clients to have one in their possession, so why is that I don't have one? I'm a detective that seems to need this device in each and every case, so perhaps I should loot enough coins to buy one for myself. One feature I did like with the Collector's Edition version, was with the collectibles, starting with the Mechanical Spiders that allow you go into the collections room, then you get to play a fantastic game using the spider to eat all the flies on his web. It's not even that easy (but still quite doable) because you have to choose the highlighted flies and it's very easy to get stuck if you choose the wrong pattern. I was hoping that you got to collect more spiders and play increasingly harder spider/fly games, but the next collectible disappointed me with a stupid bird where you swap puzzle tiles to create a picture. The only repeated feature I didn't mind was the return of the scrappy 'ole cat who seems to be everywhere, but I can't remember his name offhand. He offers you one of his 9 lives after the demo, once you answer 3 riddles to spell R.I.P. As I stated earlier, this is a rehash of the same story, a member of a small private organization within a small usually wealthy community goes rogue and seeks revenge on members who did him wrong. When the Mayor's son is slated to be the next victim, the detective is finally called in for help, and as always, they all know who the killer is and why, but don't bother to tell you because they know they deserve the punishment, they just don't want to die for their sins. In this case we have a gentleman dressed in a Red Cat suit, that sounds like darth vader, and leaves his signature calling card of a red cat symbol on their door, to torture them psychologically before doing them in. He seems to be playing a game of Cat and Mouse with the detective, as naturally, he's always one step ahead of him. Once again you are loaned a Memory Fragment Detector which is used in most scenes to scan for Memory Fragments to capture a recent memory which will be shown as a silhouetted clip. You will also collect coins all around town as you deem them free game, and you will launder these coins at the local shop to buy merchandise is needed to advance. I thought the Collector's Edition Bling was well worth the extra price point because of the previously mentioned collectible Mechanical Spider Mini Game of Eat all the Bugs in one continuous pattern, but after purchasing this game in the CE and finding out that the collectibles were different types of Mini Games, I wish I had waited for this Standard version. The CE also has the usual Achievements to earn as well, actually there's one achievement that requires you to use the Hint feature in every scene, which is out of the normal or usual achievements to receive, so keep that in mind. The Hidden Object Scenes themselves aren't all that impressive because most are Interactive List finds, AND most of the HOP's are repeated twice which is a feature I loathe because it's just too boring a second time around. One thing I did find enjoyable was that almost every one of the HOP's have a puzzle to solve such as swapping square tiles, or putting fragments together. There are also several smaller Zoom Zone HOP's that are Multiple finds such as 5 nails or 4 ladder boards. (btw, what do you think happened to the shopkeepers ladder that caused the boards to fly off the ladder and land above the doorway?) The Mini Games are really entertaining, and are usually available in Casual or Hard difficulty settings which is genius because sometimes I want more challenge than other times. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) A four part Super Puzzle, Restore the circular image by swapping the pipe pieces. 2) Match all of the mechanical eyes by opening two eyes at a time. 3) Swap sides of red and blue tokens by sliding or jumping tiles. 4) Complete the image by rotating each token to align the images. 5) Drag the pipes covering the spiders legs to find and align holes over the symbols until you find the symbols that match the ones shown in the spider's eye. 6) Memory Fragment Device games require you to scan the device around the room when it glows until you capture all the floating orbs that cannot be seen with the naked eye. (but you can see all kinds of crazy things other than orbs!) 7) Catch the criminal by choosing the arrows to program your movements. 8) Follow the code to choose owl in the correct order. 9) Slide tiles to empty slots until the star can slide out easily. 10) Arrange the celestial symbols as shown on the clue by sliding on a track to available slots. 11) Swap hexagonal tiles so all the colors connect and light up. 12) Fill the gauges by dragging lines to connect at least 3 same colored lamps. The Collector's Edition has 15 replayable Mini Games, 19 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 8 Movies, 4 Music Soundtracks, 4 Screensavers, 6 Wallpapers, 6 Concept Art, 12 Achievements to earn, Collectible Mechanical Spiders with Mini Games, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!
