Dark Canvas: A Brush With Death is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good game! Enjoyed this game, lots of fun. Very good storyline, will hold your interest. Not too much moving back and forth. A good who done it, mystery, adventure. Puzzles and HOs are very good; makes you work, not so easy. Good journal and no map! Do recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HOGs I've played both the Dark Canvas games and loved them both. The HOGs (hidden object games# or if you prefer HOS #hidden object scenes) are very good. I really had to look for a long time and in many games I used hints more than once! I sort of pride myself in that I usually don't use the hints for HOGs, but these are really cleaver and some of the HOGs are played more than once and I still had trouble. The story line kept me wanting to play on. Most of the mini games are easy which I loved, but I did skip some of them but not as many as I have in other games. I liked the ability to use the hint which showed direction instead of telling me what to do as in some other games. There isn't a map but BF offers a handy walkthrough. The walkthroughs come in very handy when I've been away from a game -- it allows me to read what happened previously. I also keep it open and if I get stuck I just alt-tab and go right to it. I really wish there were more of these games as I think this is my favorite at this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A FUN GAME Based on the demo. As soon as I finished it I bought it. This game is a lot of fun, there is a shadowy character in it, but not too much of the creepy factor. Visuals and music are right on the money. Minigames went from very easy to moderately hard to had to skip one because it was just too hard. The hidden object scenes were interactive and pretty challenging. I really enjoyed it and can't wait until it downloads and I can finish it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A THRILL! ORIGINAL PLOT, FUN GAMES, TWISTS, TURNS, ... BASED ON COMPLETED GAME ON HARDEST LEVEL WITHOUT HINTS OR SKIPS ******LOVED IT****** PROS: SMART story (for a change) that moves quickly and builds in intensity all the way through the end TWISTS and turns in the story until the last moment Music that builds and builds until your heart races towards the finish Fantastic voice overs Interactive hidden object scenes with a few CLEVERLY hidden objects but you won't need a magnifying glass Easy thru challenging mini-games that BLEND beautifully into the plot At no time did the HOS (hidden object scenes) or mini-games interfere with the story Story unfolds a little at a time through papers from your daughter's diary Truly EXCITING ending to the game that left me wishing I could immediately buy its sequel No map, but the game play is kept between approximately 3 scenes at a time which minimizes backtracking and does not interrupt the story's flow or your train of thought Characters that are convincingly complex Everything...music, sounds, story, graphics, voice overs, games, hos, all combine flawlessly to take you on a heart pounding adventure....almost perfection in my view Good length to the game although I finished it in one sitting because I was having so much fun CONS: Just could have been a bit more challenging for experts, but I'm being overly picky on that one. BOTTOM LINE: A thrilling murder mystery with a complicated plot that will keep you running through the various scenes just to see what happens next. Wish all games were like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I played the demo and decided this game so far was very enjoyable. So I decided to purchase. Well worth it. Perfect amount of Hidden Object games, difficulty was great, kept me thinking without getting frustrated since there is no map. Also game was quite long for a standard edition. Graphics were awsome as well as storyline. I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical paintings Nice adventure, I had a lot of fun playing this one! You have 3 modes of gameplay – casual, advanced and extreme No map, you only have journal with all the clues that you found along the way HOS are well done, clear and interactive, I enjoyed solving them Puzzles are challenging, refreshing, also you can always skip them if you get stuck Graphics are beautiful, crisp, many different locations very well designed Music is ok, I found it suitable for this adventure Story is developed nicely with elements of adventure, horror and mystery Verdict – fun game to play, worth spending some time on it, entertainment guarantied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beware of the Silloutte! A father set sail for Italy to search for his daughter who has vanished while studying art. This painter is famous for his artwork depicting future disasters, is it the painters fault or the mysterious dark silloutte? The story is great and the artwork, scenery, characters and voiceovers are very well done. This is an enjoyable game to play with clever puzzles such as jumping marbles until only one remains. The HO's are well hidden objects and some are slightly interactive such as click on a book, the book opens up to reveal a flask etc. Some of the items are obvious where to place and others take a little imagination to figure out but there is a good hint system that recharges quickly in casual mode, but is a little more challenging in advanced mode. I liked playing both versions (CE/SE) and I don't think you will be dissapointed either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Game OK....First...no acronyms-like HOS-HOG...I hate acronyms in a review! Say it like it is!!!!!! I love this HIDDEN OBJECT GAME.. Something different in every HIDDEN OBJECT SCENE. Hints refill quickly....gives enough to help but not give away what you have to do. So far not much wandering and backtracking a LONG way to retrieve something. That may change as you get farther in the game but I don't mind. Graphics are good...story line is a bit sinister but not SCARY sinister. I played for a full 40 minutes then decided to buy the game....Some of the objects you find to use are surprising in their way you use them. GREAT!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hint & Skip too long! This was a good game, but once again the devs decided to get sneaky with the hidden object games. What started out pretty straight forward, changed as the game went on. The hidden object games got progressively harder (sneaky) So that the game seemed long. Too bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FANTASIC, Loved the Italy scenes I simply loved this game. I only give games 5 stars if they use real actors. This one had regular CG characters. Its not a bad thing but I love for mouths to move and characters to be live. However please know that this game was superior on many fronts. It had lots of mini games and they were very fun. I LOVED the scenes, like one where you stood high above and could see the city and it was evening, I was transfixed by the beauty of it. Its where you stop pushing your mouse around and just sit quietly taking in the views. I loved the HO scenes some objects were a little hard to find. I loved the hint system, it took you right where you needed to be. I am glad that they used voice overs and they were very good and had accents as well. All in all LOVED IT! Now on the next Dark Canvas game in the series!
