Customer Reviews
The Curse of the Werewolves is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't play based on the bad reviews! I really have no idea how this could've been rated so poorly. I loved this game! It's actually one of the first hidden object mystery games that made freak out a little after turning it off at 3 AM to go to sleep. The sound effects and music are spot on with the creepy factor. The music kinda reminded me of the music played in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I also had no trouble being able to see in hidden object games. Those that say this game is boring or they couldn't figure out what to do next shouldn't be playing this type of game to begin with in my opinion. These games are meant for thinking and using your brain and that's what makes them so fun. I didn't have trouble to the point of being just totally stuck. Loved this game! Play it for yourself without focusing on the bad reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpected gem I agree whole-heartedly with those who say this game is under-rated. I am so glad I paid attention to them and not the over-all rating because this game was so fun to play I would have hated to miss it. I thought the sound was really outstanding - never annoying, always spooky and varied. I love it when a developer pays attention to the sound, and this time it really paid off. Another thing I loved were the HO scenes. Normally they are something I kind of put up with to advance the story, but in this game they were a plus. It is true that they were dim and gloomy, but that fit the game's atmosphere and I rarely needed the hint. And some of the clues/items were so clever it made me smile. It was slightly interactive and the interactiveness, if that is a word, was very clever. OK, moving on, I liked the voice of the main character - she didn't say all that much, but she sounded real and maybe even someone it would be nice to know. The hint system was really excellent, it told you where there were things to do but not what needed to be done. Just the way I like it. I didn't have to skip any puzzles - always a plus. Oh, and the plot - OK, not much of a plot, and it was mostly explained at the end, but the whole atmosphere dragged me along. Someone said it is short - I actually thought it was pretty long but I like to take my time and I can say that I was having so much fun I didn't want it to end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh boy. This game was ah-mah-zing. I don't get the many bad reviews this game got at all. It was such a creepy and eerie experience. I felt like I was in a horror movie. The atmosphere was just brilliant. I never needed to look at the walkthrough for this game at all. Not even once. And most of the time I usually do because I just lose my way, however, this didn't happen in "The Curse of the Werewolves" because I became completely enthralled in the game, because the map was extremely useful and also because the item interactions you were supposed to do were blantantly obvious. I have read in a review here that the search scenes can be zoomed in again even though there is nothing more to do in them, but when you pick up or interact with everything you can in such scenes, they automatically close and that's how you know there's nothing more for you to do there even though you can still zoom in. Pros: - Almost palpable and breathing atmosphere. Just brilliant. Every little thing contributed to it. The nicely told and unfolded storyline, the effects, the artwork, the sound and the music. Un-be-li-evable. - The ambient sounds and the music were pratically always the same but they didn't bothered me not even once. That is definitely a feat. The footsteps sound effects were delightful, too not to mention the howling sounds outside. Top notch; - The effects were beautiful. The dust falling all around the mansion, the lamps or the lit candles, the moonlight. So beautiful; - The artwork is the bomb, too. The mansion is so beautiful to look at. My favorite location was the dinning room with the creepy wolf head above the fireplace. The scenes are more dark than usual but that's part of the story and the setting and enveloped everything in an incredible aura of mystery; - The hidden objects scenes weren't few but they were a pleasure for me to play and I love when that happens. Although some of the objects were very small, they were still pretty easy for me to spot. The HO scene I liked the most was the one inside Robert's house. The artwork was beautiful; - The puzzles weren't very tough but not very easy either. I was really pleased that I didn't had to skip any!; - The storyline, although not original, was a delight for me since I love the ideia of werewolves. It was also very well achieved throughout the locations (the dead bodies, the splattered blood all over, the silence...); - Ashley's voice-over (she's the only one who gets to talk apart from the wolf) was very, very good and not annoying for me at all. Very believable!; Cons: - I really wished the game would have been longer... It wasn't very short, but it could have lasted more. I wish it did...; - The bonus chapter was really, really short. I still loved it, but when I got to the end all I could think about was "that's it?"; - The collector's (or premium) edition isn't really worth it. For me it was since I completely loved the game and wanted more apart from the main game, but, as I mentioned above, the bonus chapter is very short and all that you have left after that are wallpapers and just three of them. Not even concept art... :(; Overall, this was one of the best games I ever played. So atmospheric and so beautiful looking... The storyline is also very good and it doesn't leave too many questions unanswered and that's great in these types of games. I'm really saddened by all the bad reviews people gave this gem but the game being absolutely awesome more than makes up for it. So much, much more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a surprise packet. Despite it only having 3 stars I decided to trial it anyway and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. Yes the hidden object scenes are a little dark but the building is abandoned and only light by candle and lamp light. Some objects are partly obscured by others and you do have to open boxes and such to find others. There are only hints for the HO scenes, but if you click on the compass it shows the location of: HO scenes, mimi puzzles and points of interest, this is sufficient enough and so you have to use your brains to decide what to do next. The graphics are great, it's atmospheric and the mini puzzles are not to difficult. Overall length was good. Trial it for your selves and you may be pleasantly surprised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better than it's rating Excellent graphics, good story line, plenty challenging and plenty long. Don't know what it has a lore rating, it's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wolves everywhere As another reviewer said, you will love or hate this game. I loved it! This is only the 3rd game of the horror genre that goes on my favorite game list. In fact, I rarely buy them and if I do I'm usually dissapointed. But, although this one does lack a hint system outside the HO scenes and those are often dark, I completely enjoyed this one and couldn't stop playing. What most endeared me was the wolves that popped up everywhere and the acting. Unlike most of these games, Ashley delivered such lines as "Oh, Grandma", with believable emotion. The game was challenging but that will add to its ability to be replayed. The story was great, with a surprise, involved ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome adventure! This is probably one of the best adventure games I have played in years! If you like super easy hints and maps that move you instantly this is not the game for you. There is no instant gratification in this game. It is all about using your brain. There is a map that tells you where you still need to find things but that is all it does. The only hints are in the HOGs. A couple of things threw me as being odd like using a stone instead of a sledghammer but for the most part it was really cool. This is a game where you actually have to think! The ending was a little too easy as compared to the rest of the game but still nice. I would definitely recommend this game to those that like to play but not use a walkthrough to cheat. It is extremely cerebral in some parts and a lot like being an actual police detective. They don't get any hints! Why should we?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect - maybe a little short This is a complete little gem of a game, which surprised me after reading the other reviews. The negativity meant that I trialled before I bought, and played through as fast as I was able - which meant when my hour was up I was fifteen minutes from the end of the game. I bought it to play those fifteen minutes, and to replay it to my heart's content, as I'm sure I will. The story is fairly basic. You're given your goal - finding grandma - at the beginning and while there are a few little surprises throughout, there isn't much more story progression til you reach the end, when you get a wonderful cinematic explaining everything you've seen on your journey. I really enjoyed this and wish more games would do it; far too often the story is part of the game and the frantic clicking of the 'endgame' scenario means you don't often check your diary in the final moments to get the big reveal. Whether you read your diary at every chance or not in this game, you won't be left with many questions. The playstyle is fairly magnificent. Not a whole lot new when it comes to the puzzles or HOs, though you'll want to 'look with your mouse' as it were, as occasionally your mouse becomes a hand - this is your only indication that you'll need to interact with the scene to find certain items. But what really makes this game stand out is its map. No it doesn't let you zip magically from one locale to the other, but it's a whole lot better than that. We might be used to maps that tell us which rooms have areas of interest, but this one goes so far as to show you, in a simple schematic, where IN THE ROOM that area is. It'll also show you where the HOs pop up, and these can sometimes appear in random places so that's pretty handy. Some reviewers suggested the need of a walkthrough but I can say this with some certainty - get to know your map and there should be no point at which, when you get stuck, it will not reveal all the answers. On the one occasion where I did not know what to do next and my map provided no new clues ... it was because I'd neglected to notice the arrow to the next area. My own fault. Even that only flummoxed me for a moment, until I figured out that another zone was the only possible solution. The map is perfect. It might not show you which item to use, but it does just about everything else. This might seem like I'm only reviewing that one aspect of play, but that's only because it really did affect my entire playthrough, and it made the experience wonderful. Everything else was average or better - only the slight darkness of scenes was irksome, but you're in the woods at night, so there's not really any good reason for the scenes not to be dark! As I mentioned earlier, I can't say much to the length. An ultimate speed run took a little over an hour, which is probably about average - if I'd been taking my time and not racing the clock I can imagine it taking two and a half to three hours. And the fulfillment of story makes it seem meaty content-wise, so overall I'm pretty pleased. That's a definite recommend from me, for the experience, for the gameplay, for everything. A beginner might find themselves going pretty slowly, but the answers are all there, it's just a case of finding them :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super The game is difficult but very interesting. It is for those players, who do not like playing hastily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice game to play. The game is short. When it ended, I felt as if there were more story to tell. Maybe the developer wants to do a sequel? I used a free game credit, so I got my moneys worth.
