Grim Facade: The Message Collector's Edition is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Zzzzzz! Hello friends! As usual, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story line to others. Well, unless I lost count somewhere along the line, I believe this might be #10 in this series. No, I do not have them all either. The graphics were actually very well done, very clear, with no real noticeable blurring. Game play was quite good and the scenes fit my large screen very well. Animation is really nice and realistic. Voices were not bad. The "bad guy" had quite a sinister voice, but the old man needed to actually sound like an old man. The one thing I really do not care for is the need to "choose" what I want to say. I wish to play a game, not figure out what I'm going to ask next. I haven't seen that it makes a difference which dialog you choose either. Music was the same few notes and got quite annoying very quickly. Sound FX aren't too bad. I did hear some background sounds now and then, but not a lot. Color was much better in this addition, than in previous games in this series, clearer and brighter. Again, we have the annoying "memory sphere" that collects energy to give a ghost enough power to help you out now and then. This really takes the fun out of a game for me. Be aware that when you are in the "dream" mode, there are bright lights. Fortunately, not often. HOPs were a combination of interactive lists and silhouettes. The scenes were fairly clear and items were not difficult to find. Puzzles weren't all that challenging, but did take a little time to complete. None were really hard to figure out. The hint system is quite helpful, but there is no transport feature on this game. We do have a jump map, but it is very bland and only useful if you want to jump to a different location, assuming you know where you need to go. SG is the same and does show you where collectibles are hidden. Collectibles were disappointing. I accidentally found out that I collected coins to buy items that help me progress through the game. Again, we find skulls, which are plenty large enough to see, do don't worry about missing any. This game definitely needs more in this department. As with the last game in this series, I do not feel this game is CE worthy. The story was the same old boring line and moved too slowly for me. It was an okay game for a beginner, but it didn't have anything exciting to keep me interested and wanting more. Again, the lack of collectibles, choosing dialog and the boring sphere are the reasons I downgrade this game. I will recommend this one for beginners, but I don't feel a seasoned gamer would care much for this one. I'm sure there will be those who find this one fun, but it isn't for me, so no buy. As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Another Masked Madman I am a fan of the later games of this series particularly, but I didn't like this one so much. I was a beta tester and I thought it showed promise. The artwork is good, but we seem to have slipped from Steampunk to a sort of anachronistic jumble. Like other reviewers I found the story line somewhat confusing. The game is also, I felt, a bit on the short side altogether. The bonus chapter is a separate story and doesn't really add anything to the main game story. I, as usual, had problems finding all the collectibles and wish there was a way to go back after you finished and research scenes to find the ones you've missed. I recommend if you a series fan to try the demo first and then decide if you like it enough to do the whole game. I thought it started out very promising but then kind of left me hanging in the end.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Excellent graphic but boring story It was a really boring game/story - not exciting at all. Somehow it was pretty clear who the bad guy is, but it does not make any sense anyway. I had it through very quickly - from time to time I needed a hint for a minigame but most were very easy to solve. I have played a lot of better games - too bad, It has much more potential, because graphically it was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This one had me at a 'NO' when. . . . . .at the game's start, I arrived at the Medium's house and the front door had 5 or so locks on the OUTSIDE of the door (huh?). Yet, while I had to 'puzzle' my way in through a side window, the cops simply breezed in without either a kicking in of the door or, at the very least, show where they shot at the door to enter in (now THAT would be detail). I also don't like having to do so many tedious/menial tasks, at the start of ANY game, to get out of a situation (i.e., getting out of the prison), nor do I care for 'gimmicks' (a deal breaker); all of which interferes with the flow of a game. I have long-ago bypassed this developer's offerings (previous group and these folk who have assumed them), as they have long lost their edge in game originality. Their games have great visual and sound quality, but that's exactly where they leave their talents at. I strongly echo others in that we all have diverse game preferences. But, as for me and my household. . . .

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's a Mystery Why Anyone Wants to "Take Down" Mordamo In a small town, the local medium, Madame Esperance, claims she has been helping to protect the town from evil for years by helping the police. She sent for you to help solve her murder. You arrive in time to see her murdered thru her window by someone wearing one of those beaked masks that keep showing up in games. After you work your way through her security system, you are in time to be caught with blood on your hands and tasered by the police. You quickly find yourself in jail. Good News: Some fool will let you out for 24 hours to find evidence in your favor. Bad news: The murderer has a head start on killing other townspeople! Good news: the story is better than several of the previous entries in this series. Bad news: It's still not that good! There seems to be some indecision on the part of the Devs to settle on a time period or a game style. Worse news: They did agree to use some of the most deadpan VO's I've ever heard. And they have you running all over town stealing and waving a Spirit Catcher around when you see a cat! The story is as big a muddle as the rest of the game and left me wanting to escape Mordamo as much as the detective should. Please try the demo for yourself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A game as dead as its townsfolk Unfortunately, there wasn’t much to like about this game. The story was bland and predictable, the voice acting was monotone (and often sounded robotic), and the puzzles were uninspired. I’m a fan of games where the player must earn/find money to purchase things along the way, but having just the right amount of coin basically handed to you just before needing to buy something sort of misses the point. I’m giving the game two stars since there was an interesting twist on a hidden object game. Unfortunately, this twist only appeared in one area, the rest were the standard find-and-click. This game was so frustratingly dull and unenjoyable, it will likely be the last game I buy in this series.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I've set the option for 'voice' to 'off', that should mean 'off' Others have spoken about the gameplay so I won't rehash that. I generally dislike the voices so I turn them off. In this game, however, 'off' only means 'off' sometimes. Irritating enough that I uninstalled the game partway through the demo.
