Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Game! Since (at this point) 102 people have reviewed this game, there's little I can add. It was a great game to play. The storyline is engaging, the graphics are excellent, the music tends to drift into the background, but when you do listen to it, it's great. This is the FIRST game I've ever found all the morphing items and all the collectibles. I know I'll be playing this one again! I heartily recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from INCREDIBLE An abnormal magnetic field under Deadmond has spiked since the time of the Druids, but yesterday's spike has made up for lost time. Time that these townsfolk no longer have, because time has fast forwarded their lives. The Queen has asked you to investigate this crime against mortality, because almost everyone has aged rapidly (I say almost because little Henry is still little Henry?!?) Joined by Alison Sterling, from Dire Grove, your investigation becomes increasingly difficult with every road you take, but all roads seem to lead to the town's benefactor, Richard Galloway. Time won't be on your side for long, Master Detective, this case must be solved before everyone perishes from old age! Incredible! Mystery Case Files has never released a dud (Shadow Lake may be the exception lol) This one might even top my beloved Ravenhearst series, but I do have to voice my opinion on one flaw. It seems they opted to put the Morphing Objects within the HOP's instead of the main game, and for that, I say BOO! I fell in love with this series once I discovered that they all offered Morphing Objects within each scene, and I played them one after another because of the morphs. I always forget to look for the morphs within the HOP's, especially when they are as engrossing as the one's offered in this game. There are 39 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces and Achievements to earn in this Collector's Edition, which normally isn't enough to sway me to purchase a CE version, but I simply must have this game one way or another to complete my series collection. The Hidden Object Scenes are so interactive, so fun! There are only 2 offered in the demo, the first is an Interactive List find, the second is an Interactive, Progressive, Silhouetted Shape find that allows you to pan between 3 different scenes. Each of the 12 HOP's have a Morphing Object to find and they include at least one Mini Game puzzle. The Mini Games seem to be easier than the usual games offered by MCF, even the 8 part Super Puzzle seem easier, but they are simply fantastic, some of which are offered in the HOP's. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Use the clue to dial the correct phone number. 2) Guide the car to the finish line by selecting parts of the road, fueling is equal to one square of road, traffic lights need two fuel units. 3) Shoot the required number of colored spheres at matching colored spheres to make matches of three or more identical spheres. 4) Move the weights so that both sides of the scale are balanced. 5) Position the red tokens according to the picture in the center. 6) Swap the battery tiles to complete the pattern. 7) Use directional arrows to move the snake to eat all fruit. 8) Flip switches according to the hint provided. 9) Use clues to figure out the correct amount of money needed to withdraw, and select the correct money icons to enter. 10) Select the correct symbols on the cylinders shown on the parking meter. 11) Create a path that divides the empty dots from the solid dots. This Collector's Edition has 12 replayable Hop's with 12 Morphing Objects, 36 replayable Mini Games, a Knight's Dire Fate, 39 collectible Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces, Case Files, a Trophy Room, 19 Achievements to earn, 11 Music Soundtracks, Wallpapers, Concept Art pictures, 12 Movies, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy lifting that veil!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MYSTERY CASE FILES IS HERE AND IT ISN'T THANKSGIVING, OR DID I MISS IT? In a surprise move BFG has given us our much anticipated Thanksgiving game eight months early. It is anyone’s guess as to why the departure from the norm but I am thrilled to get a Mystery Case Files game earlier than anticipated, and even more so after last year’s excellent game The Broken Hour. The new MCF game The Black Veil begins with a cut scene showing a gravely wounded soldier on the battlefield who reaches out to touch an apparition in the moment before death. As he pulls back in surprise he finds a feather in his hand that soon turns to gold as his mortal wound is miraculously healed. The actual game begins when we see Alison Sterling (yes, our old friend from Dire Grove) reporting on a viral outbreak in Dreadmond, Scotland that that has people fleeing the city in fear of their lives. The virus causes people to age at an accelerated pace and everyone who comes in contact with the virus soon dies of old age. As you delve into this latest mystery you find things are not always as they seem. As is always the case with this top notch developer, the graphics and the Mystery Case Files world created are absolutely wonderful. Everything about the game is exactly what I expect and look forward to in this wonderful series. At least from what I have played in the early part of the game, the Dalimar saga is not present – thankfully! You have an interactive map that is present at the beginning of the game. The HOPS and the puzzles are incredible. I don’t want to say more because you need to experience them and find out exactly what is awaiting you in the game. I thought I had just about seen everything there is to offer in HOP scenes but EIPIX takes creativity a step beyond and has given us a new twist. The puzzles are terrific and yes, they are a challenge. When the first MCF game appeared and we encountered the Rube-Goldberg puzzles I was amazed. It probably took weeks to get through that game and I needed help to complete some of the puzzles that were found at each level. Now, I look forward to finding those Rube-Goldberg puzzles in the MCF games and I am happy to say there is a good one early in The Black Veil. If you prefer the CE version of a game this one offers the following extra content: 6 Morphing Objects, 7 Trophies, and 39 Puzzle Pieces to find. There are 20 achievements to earn and some of them have additional parts. Other extras include the standard fare wallpapers, artwork, movies and music. You can replay the HOPS and Puzzles, Knights Dire Fate, Trophy Room, Strategy Guide, and Bonus Chapter. The Mystery Case Files games have for the most part been quite terrific. There was a point when I reached my limit with the Dalimar saga and I am quite happy that maybe they have gone away for good. The Black Veil is creepy and has an excellent storyline. I knew that the game would be a no-brainer purchase for me so I hit the buy button immediately. I’m am so thrilled to have an exciting MCF game to play and that it is one to stimulate the brain as well as provide the fun I look forward to in a challenging mystery game. Please try the demo to see if this Mystery Case Files is a game you will enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And they're back! Well done MCF, well done. Last two games had me worried that the MCF franchise was in trouble! But you have begun Redemption. This game had it all - a closing (or opening) story to the last 2 games AND puzzles that actually made me think! Really enjoyed it. Keep moving forward and yes, me thinks me saw a hint of the next one? Exxxxcceelent..... Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storyline & Puzzles Galore Based on Main & Bonus games Getting an MCF game in March is like Christmas in July. Eipix showed out with great puzzles, scenery, cutscenes, story, music, characters, and voice-overs. I actually went back to review the cutscenes-I never do that. Nor do I usually follow the story closely, but this one pulled me in hard. Eipix skillfully wove a melancholy, creepy environment with music & sound effects, and eerie artwork. The villain was more like Hitchcock's "banality of evil" type, than the usual cowled "bwah-ha-ha" kook. Adventure was A+ with multiple scenes, less linear play, and none of the trite tasks we come to dread. HOs were interesting w/o being cluttered, and contain morphs. Traditional HO fans will be pleased. For you puzzlers, Super Puzzles are everywhere, and clever, entertaining and challenging. Mini-puzzles are usually much simpler. Puzzle pieces are in every scene; collect them all and get a new wallpaper. CE bling also includes the Trophy Room (a mini-collectible hunt), replayable puzzles & HOs, achievements (some are quirky, read them before you play), and the usual. The main game lasts 4-5 hrs in hard mode, the bonus game about an hour. The latter is more of a prequel. Is it worth a CE? Definitely yes. There was a lot of effort put into making this game more compelling, original and challenging. Plus the bling will extend your playtime. And yes,it's better than MCF:Broken Hour. Hope that helps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a MCF is Supposed to Be This game has the music, the puzzles, the environment to create the mood that we all love in the MCF series, especially the earlier games. The longer puzzles are a little easier than the older incarnations, like Madame Fate, but still challenging if you don't like to skip anything. Lots of rain, and I love that in a game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW !! I woke up and went to BFG's home page and it's Thanksgiving already !! Such a surprise and a pleasant one indeed to have a new MCF game 9 months prior to when we usually get a new offering. Welcome back Alison Sterling who was in a group years ago to decipher goings on at Dire Grove. This time she is in Dreadmond, somewhere in the U.K. to see her former classmate Maggie Sharp since some strange events are bedeviling the town. Alison is rescued by the detective ( that's us ) and upon reuniting with Maggie finds Maggie to be an old woman. Although Alison is unaware of why her friend has aged so incredibly, the player knows from the initial cut scene that a British soldier wounded in the World War I Battle of Somme is miraculously revived by a weird woman-like entity after he plucks a feather from her clothing. We also meet a Scotsman who claims to have devised an apparatus which will end the mysterious events plaguing Dreadmond. Eventually even Alison is suddenly aged by the Black Veil so now it's up to the detective to solve the mystery. Most of the MCF games have been remarkable successes with a couple of clunkers to deal with. The Black Veil appears to be one of the excellent installments based merely on the demo portion. Other than the fantastic drawing of this game, it is the terrific use of imaginative HO segments and the inclusion of some difficult puzzles that make this MCF a worthy successor to the series. The player needs a sharp mind to complete some of the puzzles as they are tough nuts to crack. One is of the Rube Goldberg variety introduced way back in Madame Fate. Fortunately for the player, individual sections of this poser can be skipped if proving to be too hard. I managed to slog through with lots of trial and error before finishing and obtaining a useful item to continue the quest. We also have a fabulous HO segment in the Dreadmond estate building requiring the opening of 3 sections of a scene and locating and inserting objects correctly in order to acquire yet another item. There are jigsaw puzzle pieces to collect and if there are morphs I saw none in the demo. This game is clearly not for beginners and for those who have not played earlier MCF don't worry as Black Veil looks to stand alone quite well. Finding a new MCF at this time of year is a pleasant surprise and I can dare say that most of us HOPA aficionados shall certainly jump straight away into the deep end of the pool. This game should be a brilliant success.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STOP RICHARD GALLOWAY AND SAVE DREADMOND REVIEW OF COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS The main game is about you, Master Detective, to stop Richard Galloway and save Dreadmond. The bonus is about a young Richard Galloway in the 1920s in Paris. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Hard, Insane and Custom modes of play; * Interactive map; * Diary; * 19 Achievements (some with 3 circles); * Find 39 puzzle pieces throughout game and bonus. The graphics are quite dark, however there is plenty of colour. I didn't have any problem finding the items I needed and felt that it added to the ambiance of the game. Sound is good and the music is from the Ravenhearst series which I had turned up loud. The hidden object games are highly interactive straightforward and silhouette. All items are clear to see. There are also little mini-games in them as well. I enjoyed doing these. There is also one morphing object per HOP. Get them all and you get an achievement. There are a huge variety of mini-games to play. Some you will get very quickly and others you will be spending some time on. There are a few super puzzles to do, however these are not too hard and I did them all. However, you can skip part or all of these if you prefer. I really enjoyed them. Some took me a good 15 minutes or so to nut them out. There are 39 puzzle pieces to find throughout the game and bonus. Most of these are easy to spot. The puzzle piece icon turns gold when you have found it at that particular scene. It stays dark until you have found it. The diary has some answers to tasks you will need to do, so just check it out from time to time. I didn't need to use the interactive map at all because you are only moving about a few scenes at a time before heading off, so no long traipsing backwards and forwards. I did get most of the Achievements, however I didn't get the 'Skip 3 puzzles', 'Solve HOPs in under 60 seconds' or 'Solve HOPs in 20 seconds' in the Extras. However, I know that some fishies love to get all the Achievements, but I couldn't manage that. All up the game took me a good 10 hours to play and I was disappointed when it finished as I wanted to carry on. Overall, a terrific game. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PRESENTING EIPIX' AMAZING, LONG AWAITED MCF, THE BLACK VEIL!!! Am I dreaming of playing an outstanding MCF Game? Do not wake me! Dark, foreboding, interesting, logical--there's a 180 degree turn here from the illogical and mostly boring games during the past year throughout the BFG Site. EIPIX has come through in a big way with a smoothly flowing exchange of conversation and events, music, art, graphics. Bravo! I will be the 1st to admit that I was wrong! Is this the surprise another member wrote about that they had beta-tested and was being released soon? Aha! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-
