Customer Reviews
Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 80.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from OLDIE, BUT DEFINITELY A GOODIE!! I played Brink of Consciousness: Dorian Gray Syndrome and enjoyed it so much I bought this one. What a great game if you like murder mysteries. It is a bit old school, but how refreshing. They definitely don't make them like this anymore. No whistles, no bells, just a good murder mystery. I love the detective and his grit. Not afraid to tackle or say anything.. Had some humor thrown in from time to time to add to the enjoyment. If you are tired of all the fairytales, si-fi, ghosts and witches, give this a try. It definitely will make you as eager to solve the mystery as the detectives. Just a good, old fashioned, serial killer mystery to solve. Happy Gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPERBLY DONE DRAMA – Who is murdering forlorn souls who’ve been jilted? I thought this game was excellent and created a wonderful atmosphere from the start. Set in England, using authentic English voice-overs, you travel around to all kinds of settings: small houses, mansions, parks, Hotels, China Town…You will know from the first 5 minutes of trialing this game if it’s your cup of tea. I was looking for a change of genre, not fairytale, nothing occult and nothing sci-fi, although I do love all of those too! This fit the bill. Great graphics, sound effects and a storyline. The violence is minimal and only extends to seeing some dead bodies, and very little blood. There is A LOT of talking, but that is also part of the charm. If you click where the written words of the conversation appear, then that whole section of discussion will be terminated (it won’t move to the reply of the next person). The map doesn’t take you to locations, but I didn’t mind, because I found the game scenes interesting to be immersed in. Nice artwork in many places. I wish I had bought the CE so I could’ve played the bonus game too. From the screenshot of it, which appeared at the end of the main game, it looked as if the Bonus Game was set in beautiful countryside. GRAPHICS: Excellent, clear, detailed, natural looking, artistic, enjoyable to look at. Very nice back-drops. HOPS: About a dozen. PUZZLES: Varying in difficulty. SOUNDS: 4 sounds…hooray! Full sounding environmental sound effects, separated from music. If you listen to the music much, it is nice. HINT: Will lead and show you where to go and what to attend to, but NOT what item to use from the inventory. DIFFICULTY LEVELS: 3 - You CANNOT change levels during gameplay. MAP: Very basic. Indicators are present. NOT travel. INVENTORY: NOT lockable JOURNAL: NONE. CHARACTERS: Excellent English voice-overs. There was something strangely entertaining about the characters at times. This is the second installment in the Brink of Consciousness series. I trialed the first one, Dorian Gray but didn’t play it because it seemed a lot darker/chilling/disturbing in nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders Great squeal, very good storyline, beautiful graphics and heaps to puzzles to keep you going:) I thoroughly enjoyed this game but the talking in it just sometimes went on a little too much, never the less I still loved the mystery and adventure of the game which made me feel like a real detective.. Good work Big Fish:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional game! I loved this game! I didn't play this game until early 2015 and it is still better then all the newer high tech games coming out today. The Lonely Hearts Murders is one of those rare hidden-object adventures that feels like it dedicates itself to its plot more than anything else. It's all very Sherlock Holmes meets film noir, with a big emphasis on atmosphere and character interaction, which means you see and speak to a lot more characters, making your investigation feel like... well... an investigation. The character models tend to look best from a distance, but the design as a whole is remarkably well done, from the artwork to the soundtrack. Heck, even the hidden-object scenes are typically easy on the eyes and fun to mess around with. I loved the British accents, but my favorite part was having someone in the game with me, talking to me and helping me with the investigation. Ok, I actually do all the work but it was fun having him with me just the same! . If you're looking for a hidden-object adventure with gorgeous art, creepy intrigue, tons of fully animated and voiced characters and scenes, and the ability to rearrange a woman's shoe closet, do yourself a favor and check out the demo for Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders you won't regret it!! Highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from After 3 years, it is still enjoyable I have just started re-visiting all my games and playing them again. It is surprising how many that I thought were great at the time, seem so dated now (only 3 years on). But this one has retained it's playability (if that is such a word!). I thoroughly enjoyed playing it again and will do so again sometime. For once there is a storyline and an ending. The HOS are basic but good. The puzzles again are basic but a good level of challenge. It's not as technically brilliant as some of the current games but it does what it says on the tin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game, wish I bought the Collector's Edition Lots to do and puzzles not so difficult I want to skip them. There are a few too many cut scenes that you have to listen to for clues of what to do next but all in all a most enjoyable game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Different Game. Wow, I can't believe I've only heard of this game today. After playing the demo I just had to have it. That was this morning and I've just completed it in the casual mode. This game is very different in that there is an enormous amount of dialogue, but I loved that part the best. All the back stories, the lies, the searching, the interviews -- I could go on and on. I've never played a game where the story was told with some much dialogue, which I could have skipped but I just loved it. It has a map, but I didn't find it very useful as it doesn't transport you to where you want to go, so I stopped using it early on. I didn't even mind the music, which I usually turn off, but this was kind of dreamy and relaxing. I thought the visual was excellent. This is a very easy game, so a beginner would not find it challenging. It sure did get a lot of 5-star reviews from expert players who probably played in the most difficult. I never play in the difficult mode as my attention is easily swayed so I'm sure I would not like the game as much. It's a great story of love, suspense, a real who-done-it! This is probably not suitable for children as there is some swearing now and again. It didn't bother me one bit, after all these are very passionate men and women. There are not too many HOS and the same scene is visited twice. However there are some nice twists in some of them. Otherwise they are list type with a bunch of junk, albeit pretty junk. The hint button recharges fairly quickly. There are a lot of great puzzles. Some a little different from the usual. I think I only skipped a couple as they were pretty easy. There is a great walk through if you get stuck, which I did in a couple of the puzzles, but the walk through got me back on track in no time. The hint button is directional outside of the HOS or zooms in to the object if it's in the scene. I love directional hints and use them a lot to make sure I've cleared the current room and to guide me if I get a bit lost (I step away from game play a lot). I had so much fun playing this game and am going to try the other Brink of Consciousness: Dorian Gray next. Play the demo and read some reviews. I hope you read mine and it's helpful. Good gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brink Of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders SE I purchased Brink of Consciousness: The Lonely Hearts Murders in the Collectors Edition when it was first released, but I really believe the Standard Edition is the better value because there isn't enough substance in the CE. The Lonely Hearts Murders and Dorian Gray Syndrome are fantastic games! I will admit that I like Dorian Gray better for the story and creepiness of the game but Lonely Hearts is hands down a better quality game with extremely well done voiceovers and the characters move so fluently that they are realistic. To give this game a touch of the past, you can opt for film grain in the options box (Dorian Gray has this feature as well) You play Olivia Wright's father, Owen Wright and pair up with Logan Green the detective you mentored many years ago. Olivia has gone missing after a painful relationship leaves her heart broken, this is the type of victim the Lonely Heart killer preys upon, broken hearted! Owen and Logan know they must find Olivia within 30 days, after 30 days the murderer leaves the victims body displayed in the streets, he removes their heart and replaces it with a single yellow lotus, time is of the essence, what are you waiting for? As I said before this game is a first class kind of game, professional and quite well done on every facet of the game. Most games don't have you actually following a character because the character looks, sounds and moves so fake, not so with this game, characters as very well done and very realistic. The hidden object scenes are interactive, some items require you to click and drag that item where it belongs such as dragging patches to pants to cover up holes. My favorite mini game was placing shoes with stockings of multiple colors and patterns onto shelves that lit up when correctly placed. Each pair had to have something in common with the adjacent pairs, such as green stripes could be placed next to red stripes and the red stripes next to red plaid etc. The only extras you get with the Collectors Edition is Wallpaper, Concept Art, Soundtracks and an Interview with the developers, accessible after completing the game, either way, it's a great game enjoy!
