Paranormal Files: The Hook Man's Legend Collector's Edition is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Storyline and Game play Really enjoyed everything about this game. The bonus game was great and had different scenes. Lots to collect, though achievements room was bland. Loved the music and voice overs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Rick Rogers I love this series and I love Rick Rogers - and we share the same taste in slippers. This is a short game, but very enjoyable. I liked the story line and trying to figure out who was real and who was not. I was happy with the HOs, and the puzzles. Goals were clear, and there was no difficulty playing. I'm hoping this series will continue for a bit, but I'd like the game to be a little bit longer. I'm sure I will play this again; in fact, I'm thinking about replaying the whole series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rick Rogers is Back! Now this one is more like it! I thoroughly enjoyed both Fellow Traveler and The Tall Man, but the third installment in the series, Enjoy the Shopping, fell short in my opinion. However, The Hook Man's Legend recaptured Rick's wry humor and clever wit bringing that element to the Paranormal Files games that makes it stand out from the dreary cookie-cutter HOGs that seem to have become the norm. The storyline was compelling, taking a fresh approach to an old tale. The mini-games were the perfect level of difficulty for me, especially with the option to choose between Easy and Hard. The HO scenes were a little dark, but not so bad that I had to use any hints. I found the eyes, collectibles and morphing objects without too much trouble, though the eyes were sometimes really hard to spot. Overall, I was very pleased to see that this game had the same appeal as the first two. Rick Rogers is easily my favorite paranormal detective, and that's saying something given the competition he has with Anna Gray, Brown and James from their respective games. Looking forward to see what case Rick has next in his Paranormal Files!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ANOTHER EXCELLENT PARANORMAL FILES THAT WILL “HOOK” YOU ON THE SERIES Hunky paranormal detective Rick Rogers is back in the third Paranormal Files: The Hook Man’s Legend, a terrific ghostly whodunit mystery. You will have to sort fact from fiction as you strive to find what is real and what isn’t in Ashen Valley. I loved the previous two Paranormal Files games, both of which were rated four plus stars by other gamers and I predict that this one will reach the top of the charts as well. The HOPS were very creative and I particularly enjoyed the one with a slider component. I hate to give away the details in a game so will only say that I believe all of the HOPS are terrific and for me one of the best components of the game, or more accurately they are the best. Not only are the HOPS excellent, the well-designed Puzzles are possibly even better, and this comes from someone who is not a fan of puzzles. Even though some were based on puzzles I’ve seen in the past, they were somehow changed to make them even better. The great thing about both the HOPS and Puzzles is that there is a fairly equal balance between the two so we don’t have a game that has far too many more puzzles than HOPS. As with the previous two games the storyline is well developed and told in a manner that unfolds as you find the usual clues and bits and pieces as you move through the game. I enjoyed the way the story unfolded and soon found myself so interested that I kept wanting to learn more about The Hook Man. The gameplay did involve a fair amount of back and forth but as I was hunting for the items I might need, but I liked that I did not have to stop frequently to play a Puzzle or HOP scene that seemed to interrupt the game flow. Another thing that I really like in some of the more recent games is that more developers are going back to having larger inventories where we are carrying a lot more items with us as we more back and forth between the scenes so that we need to remember where a particular inventory item might be used. In the earlier days of HOPA games, we sometimes had ten or more items in inventory and there was a lot of back and forth in the games as well, which is something that I really liked. At some point, the games became more linear and with that feature they became much easier and so straightforward, losing some of the challenge that was once found in the HOPA games. Now, at least with the larger amounts of inventory items some of the challenge has returned. Paranormal Files The Hook Man’s Legend is a game that I highly recommend but, as always, please try the demo to see if it is a game that you will enjoy as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Challenging and fun... Hello friends! As usual, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story to others to tell. I do, however, comment on it now and then. Another addition to this series. Graphics are very well done, with very little blurring, which seems to be the norm these days. Game play was excellent, with no problems during the demo. Animation is fairly smooth. Colors are very nice and not over powering. Voices were age and character appropriate, except I felt that Mr. Rogers voice sounded a bit too young for his face, and the Southern farmer's voice was a bit over the top. It was nice to see that we have considerably more character interaction in this game than we have had in many of the others lately. You can click through the dialog without missing any clues or additional useful objects. Music was soothing and unobtrusive. Sound FX are well done and move in and out with whatever is happening at the time. HOG's are very well done, with interactive lists, silhouettes, highlighted words and picture pieces. Items are not difficult to find and the scenes pretty clear. Puzzles had more challenge than I expected and took a bit more time to complete. Hint system is helpful and we do have the transport feature for longer locations. As in the others in this series, we do backtrack quite a lot. We do have a jump map, which is nothing special, but it does show you where a collectible is found, or missed. Collectible are very well done. We have eye silhouettes that are well blended into the background and not easy to spot. So far, they are in every scene. We various morphing items that are very easy to miss. We also have 12 dolls to find. These are very difficult to see, as they are mostly very small and in dark places. Of course, if you just can't find these collectibles on your own, they are listed clearly in the Strategy Guide. This story is nothing new, but it is well done. You are constantly on the move and there is enough challenge in the puzzles and collectibles to keep you interested. I think all levels of players will find this one fun and challenging, and I feel this one is worth the price of a CE. I like this series, so yes, I am adding to my CE collection. I gave this one a 4.5 on my scale. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may not care for this one at all. Thanks for the reviews. Play on!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rick Rogers Rescue. Good game. Not as good as the others in this series but better than most games coming out. I had a hard time seeing what to do on some of the area's. Some items use made no sense to me but other might see it. Sorry not to sure what to say but a good game with a discount.
