Customer Reviews
Mystery Case Files: Incident at Pendle Tower Collector's Edition is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank You GrandMa Count me in on the positive side of the reviews. I liked nearly everything about this game with a couple of exceptions noted below and I won't let the perfect be the enemy of the good. It's head and shoulders above some of the more forgettable MCF efforts we've been seeing the past few years. Pros: very high production values throughout: the graphics are spectacular, excellent voice acting, lush atmospheric music (but no sign of the traditional MCF theme), and for me the biggest pro is the mini-games. The full-screen ones are gorgeous and challenging and the Rube Goldbergs are what I so love this series for. Certain mirror worlds lend an air of surrealism to an already compelling game. And yes, even a nod to the clacky typewriter. Cons: good but not outstanding writing with an engagable plot and a satisfactory resolution, but certain of the secondary characters were interesting, original, and sadly undeveloped. A good deal of this was rectified in the Bonus Game, where we learn about the formidable Millicent Keaton but alas, the characters of the boy Bobby Reilly and Terry, the construction worker who accompanies the Master Detective throughout are barely touched. No spoilers, but the ending would have been much more satisfying with a little character development in their regard. Contrast them with Rose and the tragic twins of the Ravenhearst series to see what I mean. Bonus Game: thank heaven. Here we play as the redoubtable Millicent and find out just how the hotel came to be the spirit-haunted place that it is. Great length, great mini-games, and fully worthy of the CE status. The extras allowed a second chance at the elusive morphing objects and puzzle pieces enjoyable enough to tempt me to pass one I'd found just to be able to revisit the scene. Overall, it's the best shot for quite a while at the quality and originality of the old MCF games - good heavens, 15 years now? - and worthy of inclusion in the series. Developer GrandMa can take a bow after this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LET'S GIVE GRANNY CREDIT FOR A HUGE IMPROVEMENT! I was very critical of the last two MCF games because they abandoned everything that made MCF the holy grail of HOPA games. They obviously thought long and hard about what went wrong and chose to go back to the drawing board and try harder...and the effort they put forth in creating Pendle Tower couldn't be more obvious to me! They abolished the cutsie graphics, washed out the color palette (just enough), and created a plot that was interesting enough to make you want to continue. The tasks have vastly improved and almost everything requires fidgeting with mechanically. My only complaint here is that there aren't enough active zones per scene, BUT it was really nice to have to think about tasks for once, absolutely not cookie-cutter, and I can't help thinking how "out of their comfort zone" this developer must have been. I'm not going to lie, HOPAs bore me lately, it's always the same tasks, the same games, the same features, HOs that a two-year-old could solve, the same collectibles, basically a carbon copy from game to game. I simply did not feel bored playing this game and I even enjoyed the HO scenes (particularly the Morphing scene that switched between past and present) I usually hate gadgety features but I enjoyed the Riddle Blueprint puzzles, and the mini-games are my favorite kind, a mechanical type that requires thinking a couple of steps ahead to solve them, or requires tinkering with gauges, gears, levers, etc. Granny did a fantastic job with the Rube Goldberg puzzles, they still need to be more of a cause & effect, chain-reaction type of puzzle but if Granny improved this much in one year then I can't imagine how far they'll fly with it next year! I'm not saying this game compares to a Dire Grove, Ravenhearst original, I've lost hope that BF will ever allow these developers to create what they know in their hearts is what we the customers want. They seem to tie their hands behind their backs and expect them to create masterpieces on a ridiculous budget...but for now, this "incident" was starting point...well done Grandma :) Won't you join us at my new forum thewoodsforum.boards.net

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GrandMa's House For Thanksgiving! This is terrific. I'm half way through and am enjoying every minute of it. First and foremost; the graphics and palette- wow!! The effort on the graphics is grand in scope (literally), very well rendered, and the colorists took their time resulting in a beautiful, realistic yet pleasing palette. Very well done! Secondly the story- great ghost story, but it's what surrounds the story that makes this effort so much fun. We've got our find 'ems but we are not inundated with them- two collectibles to a scene and a puzzle piece in the close up. Great, that's enough- perfect. The scenes themselves are not overly busy with chores but there is work to do- and you have to think! Imagine that! I love the puzzles- lots of new twists there and a few will take some time. GrandMa put some thought into these puzzles! The HOPs are fun, I'm enjoying all of them. (I think more effort was put into the puzzles). The voice acting, well, it's decent and at least it's appropriate for Britain in that the accents are pretty close to authentic English accents. Too many times, the voice acting in other games have really gone down in quality as of late, very lazy efforts. The best V-O acting I've ever heard was in the Adam Wolfe series- that deserves a V-O Oscar. But, the voice acting in this game does not lower its overall quality and Her Majesty called to tell me she's enjoying playing the game very much (LOL). I love the little cameos of Madame Fate that appear: talk about a classic!! First MCF ever and a fantastic quality HOP game, hours of fun! I'm having a great time visiting GrandMa's house for Thanksgiving! Happy Turkey Day and thanks to Big Fish and GrandMa!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from *Incidentally* Unique! Mystery Case Files: Incident at Pendle Tower is the 23rd game in the Mystery Case files series, which is the longest and most famous hidden object series to date. When it was announced that Grandma Studios would now be taking over the Mystery Case Files series after it's previous creator, Eipix, stopped creating games, it was pretty well known that they would have a large task to fulfill. While Harbinger and Crossfade were great games in my opinion, none really hit the *Mystery Case Files* vibe, which in my opinion stopped hitting about 7 games ago... until now. Mystery Case Files: Incident at Pendle Tower was one of the best Mystery Case Files games to come out over the past few years, and while it does not live up to some of the older Mystery Case Files games, it comes very close. Grandma Studios did an excellent job this time around bringing a tricky, unique and all around excellent game. Personally, I think the idea of travelling back to previous cases has been reused way too much, it was done twice (three times maybe?) and that quite certainly is enough already; this game definitely did it best though, it only had slight references that made me smile remembering them. The game took me about 4 hours to complete, and while yes some bits are a little tricky, it's mainly because it's quite different from the other new games releasing now. Let me explain, most games released now are cookie cutter you-know-exactly-what-you're-going-to-do-with-an-object-before-you-even-receive-it easy, this game completely breaks that mold and actually requires a cognitive brain process. The story was good in my opinion, you can definitely tell Grandma Studios tried hard to make this as dark as they could without big fish not allowing them to publish it, and they did an overall pretty good job. The story was not *incredible* but it was definitely better than other stories I've played recently *cough* any Domini game ever *cough* Overall the bonus chapter acted as a prologue to the main story, and answered how everything came to be that was not already answered in the main story. There are two types of collectibles hidden throughout, puzzle pieces which appear on interactive scenes, and stained glass pieces that are shown in the main scenes themselves. The moral of the story, do I recommend this game? Yes, whether that be on sale or full price I think this game is worth it, Grandma Studios did an excellent job on this game so it's definitely worth your time to play it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WHAT A WELCOME CHANGE! BRAVO DEV TEAM!! I've been waiting for this release for a few months, hoping against hope that the final release would be as good as the survey. As soon as I read penmom's review, I put on my dancing shoes and waltzed over to the cash register, confident that the game was all it appeared to be. I almost never pay $13.99 for a game. I wait for a bogo or a substancial sale. Didn't care, had to have it. I almost never play a game nonstop. Did this time. Not once did I have to feed a pet, cut barbed wire with cuticle clippers, chop a tree when there is a ton of room to walk around it, or perform any of the other boring cookie cutter tasks save one - and because the game is so good, I only noted it in passing. Read penmom's review and sunnyglow's review for more details. All I can say is that it's been a long time since I enjoyed a HOPA this much, and I pray that the other studios pay heed to this latest MCF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had to buy it! OK, so it's not exactly the MCF game of the past. However, since the cabal-style takeover at Big Fish it is the best game I've seen. I love the storyline, the music and the color palette they've chosen. I'm buying it today because it is a long cool drink of water in the dry desert of games BF now offers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank You A game that has some different features and puzzles that I can actually solve. I am really enjoying this. I have stepped back and am pickier about the games I purchase so I only get the best and I don't have to write a bad review. Thoroughly enjoying this game,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I'm not going to go into detail, because others have already done so but this is an amazing, challenging game of the standard I have been hoping and wishing for, for a long time.
