A Series of Unfortunate Events is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unfortunately Excellent I'm a big fan of the books on which this game as based, and therefore can appreciate the tone throughout. This would be a prime example of a very simple concept that turns into a way better game than it might first appear to be. You'll eliminate options through increasing rooms of Count Olaf's mansion, while discovering more characters and items that directly relate to the original tales. With a few levels of difficulty and two completely different (but clearly related) games, you'll have hours of play available. In addition, as mentioned by others, the boards randomly generate, so you'll definitely find yourself coming back for more. You will also get some trivia from the books as you play, but the main feature here is the addictive logic puzzle that makes up its core. The animation is fine, though nothing special, but it's a really fun diversion. Never gets old for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Electronic Logic Puzzle If you've ever enjoyed logic puzzles, then you probably want to give this a go. It's an old game, so action is a bit slow, but don't let that deter you. The game has two modes, and both offer increasing difficulty as you move forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DID YOU READ THE BOOKS? I did, and it made this game so much more enjoyable. This is a deductive reasoning game where there are from a few to many rooms, each containing a selection of items such as villains, victims, motives, weapons, escapes and punishments. Using clues, you must eliminate items from each room until you have narrowed each room down to one item, which will then show who did what to whom, why, etc. There are 2 ways to play and 3 levels of difficulty for each way, so you have plenty of options. And because the board of rooms is randomly generated, this game can be played over and over again. It is not as easy as it sounds, as you are allowed only one wrong click for each board. When there are 36 rooms to a board, with 10 or more items to a room, this can be hard, When you get to that many rooms, the items in the rooms are extremely tiny and I found that I had to be particularly careful with my pointer, as several times it would move just a bit and I would click on the wrong thing. Also, sometimes, if I left it stationary for too long, it would automatically click on whatever it was resting on. If you make more than one mistake, you have to start over again, but the board and the clues will be different each time. The game contains a lot of hints as you are playing it to help you use the clues in the proper order to get the quickest solution. Although there is not a time limit to the boards, there is a target time for the board. I was never able to meet that target because the targets seemed unattainably low. I did finish one small board in 45 seconds, but the target time was 30 seconds. Sometimes I barely had time to review the clues before the target time was over. Not meeting the target time did reduce your score, though. A very enjoyable game that I will play again and again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Puzzle Game This is a really fun game if you like logic puzzles. My only complaint is that it's almost not challenging enough, but it's still fun and worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Favorite Game Ever! Of all the Big Fish games I own, this one is an everyday game for me. I LOVE THIS GAME. Once I have gone through all 6 game levels, I change my name on the game board and repeat all 6 levels with another name. I'm only competing against myself, and trying to beat my previous time. This is a typical Einstein game. If you are not familiar with an Einstein game, then you will soon find this game truly addictive. I only wish I had ten more just like it! Con: The only down side to this game is the music. It tends to be rather repetitive. I play with the sound off. I highly recommend this game (and others like it), for any age group.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Game Ever!!! Though I bought this game in 2011, I have not reviewed it. I love this game. I can play it if I am tired or wide awake and It is always fun and challenging. Sometimes I play just to hear the sounds for each person, item or action. And I absolutely love hearing the Count say, "Drat it!" I've read the first book in the series and seen the movie. When I play the game, it just puts another level of enjoyment to Unforturnate Events!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Game! ^^ I play this game all the time. It's challenging and engaging, while not being too overwhelming. If the icons were a little bigger I'd like it more, but as it is, I adore this game. Since the levels are randomly generated, even playing journey mode twice in a row, there is no way it would be exactly the same, thus no memorizing the icons and where they should go. If all the deduction is making you hesitant there is an easier mode where you just swap pieces, and also you can play the main game on easy. I believe anyone who like brain teasers should look into this gem of a game. Hope I helped. :)
