Mystery Trackers: Raincliff is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Game but it requires patience, perseverance, and moderate skill to be enjoyed This is the third Mystery Trackers game I have played. I enjoyed the first one (MT-TFA) and was enjoying the second one (MT-BI) until I ran into problems where the game froze about half way through it. Despite trouble shooting, uninstalling and reinstalling the game, and dialog with Big Fish, the problem was never resolved and I ended up deleting the game. The third game, MT-R, is perhaps the best game I have played so far out of the 20 or more games I have played in the last few months. There are numerous HOGs and puzzles that range in difficulty from pretty easy to somewhat difficult. Each HOG is a combination of both objects that are easy to find and objects that are cleverly and sometimes deviously hid or blended into the puzzle such that finding the last one or two objects can take as much time as finding the rest of them. There is also a wide variety of other clever puzzles that also range in difficulty from easy to pretty difficult. In fact, one puzzle was so difficult that I never solved it and ended up going online to learn the solution from two different sources, each of which had a different solution along with a different explanation of how to solve the puzzle; unfortunately, neither of the solutions worked and I was never able to understand the logic of the solution leading me to believe it is a variable solution puzzle. Increasing the difficulty, the puzzle had no reset feature allowing you to start over. In the end, it was the only puzzle that I was unable to solve, and I had to use the ‘skip’ feature to move on. It is a fairly lengthy game. It has numerous scenes that individually have numerous actions ranging from as few as 1 to as many as 8 actions in the scene with an average of about 3-4 actions per scene. There is a lot of interaction among the scenes that ranges from close at hand to extensive travel back and forth. One negative for me was that there is no map provided with the game. Admittedly, that makes the game more of a challenge but it also is a bit of an inconvenience, however, I learned a long time ago to keep my own map complete with needed scene actions even when a map is provided with the game. On the positive side, each forthcoming or prior scene is highlighted by the cursor when placed on that area or scene. Some of the actions and solutions are borderline weird but as unconventional as they may be, they are founded with some logic. It just requires that the player think a little more ‘outside the box’ when figuring out the next action. Another clever feature is that there are key actions that are added to a particular scene or enhancement shot that are not very evident and can be easily overlooked unless the player is both cautious and thorough on each visit. Overall, the story line, while not realistic, is actually quite good and the build up to the ending is logical with a reasonable conclusion. In summary, like any game, the like/dislike factor is a function of the expectations and the whims of the individual player. Not every game suits every player. For me, MT-R was an extremely enjoyable and highly challenging game. MT-R is a game that demands patience, perseverance, and shrewd thinking. It is not a walk in the park and someone looking for a breeze through game is going to be both frustrated and disappointed. I almost always play games as an intermediate player and this one took me an extended period of time and quite a bit of thinking before I was successfully able to complete the game. I never used any hints and only once skipped a puzzle but that is because I was willing to go back through multiple scenes to see what I missed. Not all players are willing to do that. Of all the games I have played and recommended so far, this one definitely would be at the top of my list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Trackers: Raincliff ~ Sprinkled with Goodies Based on completed game. Took me over 5 hours to finish. Lots of fun start to finish. Great graphics. Good story. So many frogs to collect, some in unusual places. Achievements to strive for. Most puzzles are challenging. Well worth the price for a SE. I will play it again and again to try and obtain all of the achievements.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now I understand why Mystery Trackers has so many fans! Copied over from my CE review, so you'll know what you're missing: This review is based on a complete playthrough of the game + bonus content. First off - the Bonus Content (or "Why should I pay double for this game?"): The main game ends conclusively - no 'cheated' out of an ending. The bonus is a new mystery, with a new cast of characters, in the same locations, supposedly happening three hours after the main game ends [somebody was very busy for those three hours]. The BC story isn't nearly as good as the main game - lasts an hour and half or so. The plot's been done to death, and there are no twists or new angles on it. The usual achievements, frogs to collect (there are extra so don't sweat missing a few), artwork and the usual swag. OTOH, the main game is one of the best HOPA's I've played. It kept you moving, you always knew what you were doing and why, and there was some real suspense and sense of urgency going on. I'm not going to say it's my favorite game, but it's up there - and that's after all these years (2014 now). This is the third MT I've played and the best so far. You're still 'the detective' for an ancient order (one Ogdoadic star in game if you look for it) jumping headlong into a mystery. On to the review: THE GOOD: The storyline - it picks up right from the start and never lets go. I had to stop playing for a couple of days and when I came back, after two hints I was right back into the swing of it. The characters were introduced gradually, and you learned more about all of them as the game progressed. Graphics were top notch - still great even by today's standards. Cutscenes are all replayable in game. The sound effects helped bring that icy chill through while you were playing. I don't think there was music for a lot of it - if there was it was very much in the background. The puzzles are challenging, varied, and interesting. The AI for the 'fox and the hounds' puzzle is a little off (I won from a lost position), but still challenging. The Strategy Guide won't help you with the keypad puzzle once you've tried to solve it yourself - check the forums if you're stuck. THE BAD: Girl, you better have some sneakers on cause you're gonna do some walkin' !!! You are going to run back and forth between two places that are probably geographically next to each other but you need to go through more than ten locations each way. You have no map to help you - and this game could've used one (a 'jump' map would not have been amiss). No journal. This could go into either good or bad depending on your personal playstyle. If you're used to keeping notes from Nancy Drew or similar games, you'll do fine - if you aren't: well, keep a pad next to you while you play and write down where everything is and what it 'needs'. Might want to make your own map, too. THE UGLY: Not much. A bit of frustration over inventory items that could have worked but weren't what the game was looking for (I think an oak branch qualifies as a 'stick'). That's about it. BOTTOM LINE: I think the SE is the way to go with this one. The frogs and achievements don't do anything other than tell you what you've done, and the bonus game isn't nearly up to the high standard the main game sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Trackers: Raincliff Very good storyline along with Good graphics set in the snow (freezing), heaps off puzzles & great sound.. Loved the played back movie screens you get to access on your bottom left tool bar. Thoroughly enjoyed it will be starting squeal after this... Thanks Bigfish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHO WAS THAT MASKED MAN? SUMMARY: A well-put together adventure-HOG with plenty of puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty. Artistry is detailed and appropriate to the type of scene portrayed. Story is well-told and develops nicely as the game proceeds. Lovely game - over 5 hours to play in casual. Some interesting details before you begin: • Achievements. To get all, you must complete the tutorial, complete all HOS without a hint and take at least 10 minutes to play a HOS. So if you like to garner all possible achievements, plan ahead. • Find 50 secret frogs (they take all sorts of forms and may be found in HOS but not on object list). • HOS are list-based; usually one color predominates to increase the difficulty involved in finding blended objects • Lots of back and forth, but there’s a limited number of locations, so traveling is not unwieldy. Plus you travel to and from the crossroads a lot, so you’ll get to know how to get to wherever you need to be soon enough. • Who was that person in the mask at the end? Thought everyone was accounted for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fun night Yes, another all nighter I had. Loved every minute of it. This game is fun and challenging. I loved that I had to run all around everywhere and to remember where things were. Good for the brain. Visual and sound were brillent. What I thought was great was that it was quite a long game which we could really get our teeth into. Can't wait for another one to come. Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game Mystery Trackers: Raincliff is a long sprawling game that really delivers in all aspects. It has a good (albeit hokey) storyline, good voiceovers for characters, some challenging puzzles and in casual mode, a hint button that refreshes quickly. Once I started playing, it was hard to stop. The HOS are plentiful and not that hard but present enough of a challenge to not use hints, graphics are great, and in playing the game, you'll be doing lots of running around from scene to scene. The game is not linear, and does not have a map, so you do need to keep some memory of what scene is located in what part of the game. I now have all the Mystery Trackers games, and although I didn't like "The Void", I loved this one and will now be moving onto "Black Isle"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, Awesome game!! This is by far the best hidden object game I have played on Big Fish. The story is captivating, the graphics great, and you never repeat a HOG scene. The mini-puzzles ranged from easy to difficult, but all were doable. The best plus of all, for me, is how LOOONNG this game took to finish! I hate to buy a game and then two hours later it is done. This game took me several days, playing a few hours each day. I enjoyed it so much that I immediately bought two other Mystery Trackers games without a demo, and I look forward to enjoying them as much as I did this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING I really liked this game. The graphics are awesome. I never play with sound, so can't express an opinion on that. The map is one of the best features. You can move to another location with the map, which eliminates all the backing out and going left/right to get to the next active area. The mini games were varied and some were very hard to figure out. The information on how to play the mini games was not always enough to know exactly what was required to play. Because of this, I had to skip some of them, which kept me from winning one of the awards. That was another neat thing about the game, the ability to earn awards based on how you played. That just added another dimension that just made the game that much more interesting. The hints were right on the spot and very detailed; I used them a lot to find out what I needed to do next, eliminating the need to go to the walk through for this information. However, I did not need hints in the HO scenes. This game is almost perfect and I highly recommend it.
