Mystery Case Files: Black Crown Collector's Edition is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT GAME! This is such a fun and creative game with an outstanding storyline and great visuals! I love MCF, and this game is no exception. It's super creative, with unusual HOPs, some of which take place over several stages. There are a ton of locations, and they're all unique and well thought out. The storyline is very enjoyable. In terms of collectibles, there is a crab and a morph in every scene. Most of the time they're relatively easy to find, but a couple of them were tough. All in all this is a particularly good game in the series, and I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one is great fun. I haven't had this much fun playing a HO game in a while. The game play was challenging, but doable. I loved the hidden objects that had 3 sections of playing before it was done. The graphics were excellent. My only regret when I was done is was that the game wasn't longer. I hope the next MCF is just as good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PATIENT # 11 HOLDS THE KEY TO THE BLACK CROWN Completed Game approximately 5.5 hours (including completion of all mini-games & CE Bonus Chapter) 29 Main Game Scene Locations +15 Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Intermediate Locked away in a tiny, dark cell of the Manchester Asylum is patient #11. She doesn't know who she is or where she's from. She has spoken, she hasn't responded to any treatment, she has made no progress for years, until now. Patient 11 has been obsessively drawing images of the Black Crown all over the walls of her cell while uttering randomly. Patient 11 may be mentally unstable, but she seems to be connected to the Black Crown, the same Mystery Case Files you solved 8 years ago, in Louisiana! Gadgets/Helpers: In Chapter 1, you will use a pocket watch that reacts when a new scene is discovered. You must drag the watch around the scene until it turns green, indicating you have discovered the right location. This gadget is only used 5 times and only in the first chapter. Why didn't they use the Mechanical Moth from the last MCF game? Collectibles & Morphing Objects: There are 42 Hidden Crabs and 42 Morphing Objects, one of each in every scene, including the CE Bonus Chapter. The Crabs are way too big to miss and the Coral is too brightly-colored to blend into the single color hues of most locations. Hidden Object Scenes: There are 17 Hidden Object Scenes +3 in the CE Bonus Chapter. Although there aren't a lot of variances, the scenes were well thought out and located in interesting scenes. They are mostly Listed Item Finds that are multi-layered and pan towards the back with one scene following the next. There are several Interactive List finds, Matching Symbol Finds, Matching Constellation Finds, and Pictured Item Finds as well. There are No Alternate Games Available. Mini-Games: There are 42 Mini-Games +6 in the CE Bonus Chapter, including my beloved Super Puzzles which are Rube Goldberg variations of complex door locks that require solving multiple layers of puzzles to open and proceed to the next chapter, and it's what makes MCF games so unique. below are a few of my personal favorite games: 1-All 3 Rube Goldberg puzzles 2-Drag various angled clock hands to point to every hour on a clock. 3-All versions of Untangle the Ropes games. 4-Trace the lines without repeating a direction. Bonus Chapter (Collector's Edition version only) Jumping jambalaya, Momma Aimee has discovered that Phineas Crown is one determined pirate. Phineas placed 12 segments of his soul within ordinary items and hidden them in the swamps of Louisiana. I loved this 13th Skull revisit to Absolute Voodoo which is an average-length chapter that takes place over 8 familiar Scene Locations. There are 6 Mini-Games and 3 Hidden Object Scenes and you will pick up the final 8 Hidden Crabs, and 8 Morphing Coral. Collector's Edition Extras: 8 Wallpapers, 8 Video Movie Cutscenes, 11 Music, Case Files Journal,15 Achievements, 19 Replayable Puzzles, 20 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 42 Collectible Crabs, 42 Morphing Coral, 20 Souvenirs, 5 Chapters (listed as Chapters 0-4) +Bonus Chapter, and a Built-in Strategy Guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like reading a really great book! I have really enjoyed the MCF series, some more than others. This one was really fun. I was so caught up in the story that time flew by. The hops were really well done. Some nice nuanced twists so even though they weren't junk piles, some items were not easy to find. A nice challenge. The music contributed to atmosphere. The storyline was captivating and I easily suspended my disbelief. The tasks were realistic and contributed to progess in the game without feeling like, do this , do that without meaning. I like puzzles with multiple layers which was present in this game. The bonus chapter blended nicely so you really get a lot for the price. I will play this one again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the better MCF games, almost on par with some earlier games I really enjoyed The Black Crown. One of the better MCF games in a very long time. I almost felt like I was playing one of the earlier games under Big Fish, like Thirteen Skulls or Return to Ravenhearst...almost. Is the game scary? No, but it's a good mystery. Some parts kept me guessing up until almost the end. A few of the puzzles were a bit tedious and I ended up skipping them, but that seems to be the case with a lot of games lately. But for the most part I felt most of the puzzles were a decent challenge without being too difficult. Some were very easy, but I wasn't playing on the hardest difficulty level either. The voice acting was a bit dodgy at times, like the actors were just reading the scripts and not really emoting, with the exception of the actress who played patient #11. She was excellent and it's a shame we didn't hear more from her throughout the game. I loved the storyline and the music and I thought the graphics were beautiful. All in all, this is a game I will probably play more than once and it definitely makes me want to go back and play previous MCF games, especially Thirteen Skulls. One thing I don't get is why Eipix changed the Master Detective from female to male. Sometimes I wonder if the current developers actually played the earlier games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A TERRIFIC GAME THAT REVISITS ONE OF MY FAVORITE MYSTERY CASE FILES When I first became a member at BFG eons ago, I always looked forward to Thanksgiving and the release of the annual Mystery Case Files game. Although I found most of the games good, only two are my all-time favorites, and one is related to the story of Phineas Crown – a storyline that is revisited with Mystery Case Files: Black Crown. After playing the beta for Black Crown I knew it was a game that I would love. Black Crown is the first MCF game that I have looked forward to in the past several years, and this one is well worth the wait. Kudos to the developer who has done a wonderful job with this game because it is everything I hoped it would be. If there is anything that I dislike about the game it is that in some of the HOS, the items are very tiny and difficult to identify. I have a 34” monitor and I still had difficulty finding some items because they are too small. Most of the HOS were better than the few with minuscule items to find, and those were much more fun to play. One of my favorite HO scenes is early in the game where I had to find matches between the chalk drawings on wall sections with the sketches on paper notes. One of the best things aside from the storyline are the puzzles in the game. I love some of the Rube Goldberg puzzles that are signature to this series. Black Crown has some of my favorite puzzles and contains one that I haven’t seen in years. It is a puzzle where we much place hands on a pocket watch in order to cover every hour on the watch face. I loved this puzzle the first time I ever encountered it in a game, and it is just as much fun today. I have not yet completed the game, but I am almost all the way to the Bonus Chapter that I will play a bit later. What I have played of the Black Crown is wonderful and I think it is one of the best MCF games in several years. If future MCF games are of the same caliber as Black Crown I will once again look forward to the tradition of playing an MCF game during the holiday week. Although I love this game, please try the demo to see if you will enjoy it as well. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TIME OF ON YOUR SIDE....OR IS IT? I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The puzzles and HOPS were challenging and a little different from the usual fair. Eipix has outdone themselves with this exciting mystery and adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 13th Skull Follow-Up A great MCF game and follow-up to 13th skull. The uses for items were excellent, and the visuals and music also seemed like a step up from previous installments. Excited to see what comes next!
