Paranormal Files: The Tall Man is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PARANORMAL FILES DOES IT AGAIN! Elephant Games has done it again with the second game in the Paranormal Files series. The Tall Man has a very good storyline that is sure to keep you involved as you play the game as Rick Rogers who recently found his abilities to hunt ghosts and subdue evil entities. What really grabbed my attention right from the beginning is the mystery aspect of the game as you try to sort fact from fiction and find out what happened to Tina Rice. Hopefully you will be able to prevent the events of that fateful night a year ago from recurring as the same group of friends has once again gathered on the edge of the forest for yet another house party. IMHO, this is a very entertaining and well-crafted game. As we go through the numerous tasks that make this a HOPA game we will play some excellent HOPS as well as the Puzzles that I thoroughly enjoyed. Both the HOPS and the Puzzles fit the storyline and they made progressing in the game a bit more seamless. Of course, we still have the missing keys to find and then that zipper pull that will inevitably make most of us groan. Hey, what would a hidden object game be without them? Personally, I don’t care if we have to go through several steps to open a first-aid kit or to unlock a door. For me, playing a game with a good storyline and well-designed HOPS is what I enjoy so I tend to not put too much energy into the minutiae because if I did it would be too much like work instead of fun. The team at Elephant knows what it takes to create a game that makes sense and tells a story in a way that happens to keep me involved. The further I progressed in the game the the more I enjoyed the storyline. Thank you BFG and Elephant for bringing us this second Paranormal Files game. The Tall Man is everything that I love in a great HOPA game and one that I was happy to add to my gaming library since this is one of those games that I will play each year during the Halloween season or at any time that I want a great game to play. Even though this game is perfect for me and the way I like to play, as always, please try the demo to see if the Tall Man is one you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paranormal Light in a Good Way I kept expecting more (intrigue?) in this game until I stopped myself. I remembered what makes a HOPA game: putting together/using objects (after gathering inventory) to help solve a mystery, save the world, or rescue some deserving person. This paranormal mystery game delivers in every way. In the game play there is not a lot of back and forth; there are fun (and interesting) twists to tasks, as well as the expected (keys, locks, batteries, etc.) as other reviewer have described; there is good, solid dialogue, and occasional humor. Rick Rogers does not take himself too seriously, and I really appreciate that, sort of paranormal light in a good way. Other reviewers have done a fair and good job relaying the crux of the story as well as providing specifics about graphics, HOPs, and mini-games. I always appreciate that. Thank you. I purchased this game, as I really like this series but also because of the reviews. The series storylines are varied, there is usually a bit of tongue-in-cheek, and the series integrates the tasks into the storyline, immersing the player into each game. None of this can be easy to do and Elephant Games consistently delivers, be it this series or others. Well done, again, and thank you! My review is based upon completed play of the game. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from PLAYING SPIN THE BOTTLE MAY NOT BE A GOOD IDEA! REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS Once again you play Rick Rogers and need to find out what happened to Tina Rise. There is plenty to do in each scene and I liked the characters to the story. I felt sorry for Tina as teenage crushes can be so heartbreaking as I'm sure we have all learned from past experiences. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced, Hardcore and Custom modes; * Interactive map. The graphics are terrific and very well defined. Items you need are easy to find and use. Colours are good, even in dark scenes. The music is mainly orchestral and piano. The hidden object games are mainly interactive straightforward, silhouette, find one item, then put one item back and finding 10 of an item. These are all very easy to do because items are clear to see and/or use. I thought some of the mini-games were quite challenging - you know the ones where you have to rotate tiles to get a picture or move tiles to get to a certain point. Personally I thought these had been ramped up a bit and I really enjoyed them. Some of these took me a long time to do. So, do you get the CE or SE? The bonus its about locating Mika and Dean, a journalist and her cameraman, there are 13 replayable HOPs and 13 replayable mini-games and an achievements board. In each scene throughout the game and bonus there is a morph, an eye and sometimes a statuette to find. The morphs and statuettes are easy to find, however the eyes are a little harder to see because they blend into the scenery well. I enjoyed doing these. My personal preference for this game is to play the CE. All up the game and bonus took me about 6 hours or so to play, so good value for money. Overall, this game is definitely worth putting in your collection. There is plenty to do in each scene, some of the puzzles are challenging and there is a good sense of urgency to find out what happens. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A test in patience... demo only This game has so much potential: enjoyable graphics and music, an intriguing story, an increasingly likable main character... it just falls short in the "fun" category. The next item you need to progress in the story might be on the screen you're in, might be in the last screen you just left, might be in your inventory already, might be in a place you haven't visited yet - regardless of the MANY items you've picked up already... but good luck in sorting that out! Rather than being entertainingly challenging, it just comes off as tedious. How many items do I need to collect before I can move forward? How many times do I need to visit the same three or four areas before it makes sense to any normal person that I've collected every item I need (regardless of how many times I've clicked every item in that scene), and that it's available for me to pick up the first or even second time I visit that scene?? Maybe I'm just used to faster-paced games... maybe I'm just used to games that require a little common sense to collect the items needed to move forward... either way, this game is not for the experience looking for challenging game-play, but maybe for the inexperienced beginner or novice looking to get their feet wet in HO/ adventure games. To the devs: this game has SO much potential: it could have appealed to a much a larger gaming audience if you'd just given the average gamer a little credit for being a tiny bit more intelligent in the common sense department... All of that said, please honestly judge your gaming experience before you give this game a go.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MORE CHEESY THAN CREEPY Rick Rogers at your service! After discovering his true calling as a Paranormal ghost chaser with the ability to withstand the dark forces of evil, after picking up an otherworldly hitchhiker, he's opened up his own Paranormal Detective Agency. His first case may be tougher than he thought when dealing with teenagers that love a good prank. One of the gang's friends has been missing since last year, but they haven't learned their lesson as they return to the Cursed Woods where folks have been disappearing for nearly 300 years, because ghosts aren't real, are they? I loved the first Paranormal Files but this one wasn't as epic. The "monster" was cheesy and reminded me of Groot, (Stan would probably roll in his grave) The dialog was trying too hard to make Rick funny, yet it's supposed to be a scary/paranormal plot? There were a ton of Logic fails, cliche tasks or tasks that made no sense, but I get it, HOPA world, right? I did, however, love the CE version's bling! Even though the Morphing Objects were fairly obvious and easily spotted, I liked that the Hidden Eyes were fairly challenging to spot, and I loved that the Hidden Character Statues weren't within Zoom Zones that never close until you click on the collectible, so for the bling, I recommend the Ce version. The Hidden Object Scenes were varied with Interactive List finds, Keywords in Sentence finds, Silhouetted Shape finds, Multiple Item finds, Sketch finds, Finding 5 tools in 2 categories to use on the objects blocking the Listed items, and a back and forth type where you find the Listed Item followed by Placing the next Object correctly back into the scene alternating between the two. There are several Zoom Zone HOP's and they are usually right before a main Hidden Object Scene. The objects are identifiable and the scenes are clear, but they are way too easy-breezy for my liking. I am disappointed because I didn't think they were this easy in the first Paranormal Files and in Elephant's last Series release they were amazing, so I'm not sure why they regressed?? The Mini-Games were a hodgepodge mixture of puzzles that ranged from super simplistic to more complex yet still not very challenging. They weren't necessarily bad, in fact, I enjoyed many of them, but some of them had me scratching my head wondering why they even offered them because they didn't really require solving, just moving them such as aligning 4 columns of tiles in no particular order? Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the game: 1-Drag the chain thru the maze stopping on buttons to open/close paths. 2-Swap pipe tiles to send current to numbers in a specific order. 3-Drag vertical & horizontal strips to restore the image. 4-Move tokens to the correct slots according to the clue shown. 5-Slide and rotate tiles using directional arrows to complete the image shown. 6-Drag circular discs to align 4 identical symbols until all outer tiles are lit. 7-Find the starting point that will end on the star, following the directional & numbered arrows. 8-Untangle the rope by moving set points. 9-Select pairs of matching arrows by dragging a line between them that doesn't cross other symbols. 10-Rotate the wheel to give the tools to the proper person. The Collector's Edition version has 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, 1 Screensavers, 5 Music Soundtracks, 13 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 13 re-playable Mini-Games, 10 Achievements to earn (some with 3-5 Categories) 12 Hidden Character Figurines, 27 Morphing Objects, 25 Hidden Eyes (unlock Art Collection pictures with 6-12-18-25 Eyes) 5 Main Chapters +Bonus Chapter, enjoy but he's behind you!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Definition of Derivative Derivative: Copied or adapted from others; unoriginal; secondhand. I have just two points to... er, prove my point. (1) You start the game having all kinds of electronics, but you have to use a flint striker to light a torch? What, you couldn't just set your phone to flashlight? (2) Then there's the always popular locked first-aid kit. In this game, the key to the first-aid kit is locked inside yet another thing you have to find the key to. Luckily, the injured party survives the delay while you search for keys, find a bowl, and figure out a way to get water out of... wait for it... a stone idol. I did manage to finish playing the demo, but I don't hold out much hope that the rest of the game will get any better
