Customer Reviews
Mystery Case Files: The Countess is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why the bad reviews?? I am so glad I decided to buy this game despite some bad reviews. If you love puzzles like I do, try this game! It is loaded with puzzles, many that are different than the norm and also has the multi-level puzzles that are so fun. This is a long game so you definitely get your money's worth! It's one of the funnest games I've played and I have played hundreds. Give it a go!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Puzzle Mania I have played almost all of the MCF games and have never seen so many puzzles. Some of which were rather difficult with no clear instructions in an SE game. But, if you like puzzles this game is for you. There are hidden objects throughout the game --most of the list type. I did like the graphics and the atmosphere of the game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good Game I am only critical of the puzzles. I am not sure if they are as hard as reported, or as I find them, or just the instructions are vague. You need to test these to folks who did not design it. If I can't figure out what the heck I am supposed to do, I skip it and that is not good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DESTROY THE MIRROR REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS Well fishies, if you love lots of hidden object and mini-games, then this will be perfect for you. Here you have to find Eleanor and then learn the story about Gloria and William Coddington. There are lots of twists and turns with the story and things are not what they seem. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Easy, Medium, Hard and Custom modes; * Interactive map; * Journal. The graphics are superb, with just the right amount of colour. This is one huge manor with lots of locations, so you won't be bored here. Sound is good and the music is orchestral and stunningly beautiful. I've always loved the MCF music and even the family know it well from me having it on loud over the years. The hidden object games are mainly slightly interactive straightforward and there are a lot of them. These are easy to do because items are very clear to see. Now, there are a lot of mini-games to play - some are easy and others take a lot more thinking and strategy. There are a couple of super mini-games, however these are not too hard to do. The first one took me about 20 minutes because I was a bit out of practice, but the second one only took about 5 minutes. There is something in there for everyone, even if you are not a fan of them. I loved them all because its the first game in ages that I had to think, rather than just click. All up the game and bonus took me a good 9 hours or so - that's playing all the mini-games without skipping. Some did take me a while. So, do you get the CE or SE? The CE has 37 morphs and 37 glass shards to find throughout game and bonus; 24 replayble mini-games and 24 replayable HOPs and 12 achievements (some with 3 circles). If you are thinking about just getting the SE I would reconsider because the bonus is integral to the main game and you won't get the full story of this disfunctional family. Overall a totally immersible game with lots to do, incredible mini-games and an intense desire to find out what happened to this family. Happy playing fishies. Its a long game, so please get comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ONCE UPON A TIME... The biggest reason I love the MCF series is because of the type of mini-games they include. It's a hard thing to describe, but I love puzzles that you tinker with, such as setting gauges or set points, puzzles that require logic or some sort of complex thought process, without being frustrating. The kind of puzzles that have you thinking 5 steps ahead because you know what logical steps need to be taken to get from point A to point B. I don't like manual dexterity puzzles because it doesn't require much thought process at all, I loathe "clicking one may affect others" puzzles which never seem to have any rhyme or reason to them, and I hate fight scene puzzles (probably because my logic-craving brain isn't located in my fists?) I really enjoyed most of the games here, so I was completely satisfied with my purchase. (I chose the CE version because the collectibles and morphs alone were worth the price difference to me) Master Detective, the Queen has granted her permission to allow you to investigate the disappearance of your dear friend Lady Codington. After reclaiming the family Estate against her father's wishes and warnings, not only has she mysteriously vanished, but the interior design team has vanished as well. It isn't long before the Master Detective comes face to face with evil itself, The Black Countess, the mirror alter-ego image of grandmother Gloria Codington! As far as the CE bling, I must admit that Eipix has done a wonderful job with the Morphing Objects and Collectible Mirror Shards, and I'm not usually impressed by this particular developer. I found myself staring intently on several scenes (especially the bathroom scene) to spot the mirror shard. The Morphs changed at a slower pace than usual, and for once they didn't choose an obvious item to Morph, (cuz it's pretty hard to miss a baseball sitting in the middle of an upper-scale Manor right?) Most of the time I know which item will morph the second I enter a new scene because they always chose an object that looks out of place in the scene. Even the Mirror Shards were somewhat challenging because they located them in unusual areas of the scene. I liked the graphics much better this time because they made them a tad bit darker and slightly more detailed. The Hidden Object Scenes were rather unimpressive and far and few between. They clearly poured all their effort into making this a puzzle adventure rather than a Hidden Object adventure, adding just enough scenes to qualify it as a HOPA. Most of the scenes are Interactive List finds or Keywords in Sentence finds but there are also Multiple finds and Silhouetted Shape finds. I found many of the scenes to be lacking clarity, therefore, some of the items were hard to find because you just couldn't make out what an object you were looking at actually was! I hope you like Mini-Games because there are a ton of them and they are back to back most of the time. Although I found the instructions to be confusing at times, the puzzles themselves aren't that complicated. The Super Puzzles once again make an appearance as they always do in this infamous MCF series. If you're new to this series, Super Puzzles are multi-layered puzzles, but in my opinion, these weren't as interesting because they were just made up of several mini-games, not the usual Rube Goldberg style puzzles that this series is known for. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter before and after the demo: 1-Swap pie-shaped sections to create a path for the sword. 2-Select & rotate the correct key that matches each shape. 3-Select & drag tiles vertically or horizontally to match the central piece. 4-Drag left & right ribbons to match center symbols when combined. 5-Press directional arrows to move a beam of light through a maze. 6-Super Puzzle #1: Press books to receive the first clue. 7-Super Puzzle #2: Drag tiles until their symbols match the pattern. 8-Super Puzzle #3: Place the heart between the two lovers. 9-Super Puzzle #4: Rotate tiles to create a path. 10-Super Puzzle #5: Press directional arrows to cover entire grid with ink. 11-Super Puzzle #6: Rotate overlapping circular discs to create an image. 12-Super Puzzle #7: Drag books over numbered tokens to deduct numbers to 0. 13-Rotate dials to correctly point to the direction of the symbol. 14-Rotate petals to complete flower images. 15-Swap cubes to match the flowers in the correct order. 16-Click the moving figurine to guide it to the mirror. 17-Direct the beam of light to the end by adjusting mirrors. 18-Drag a line to flip all tokens to the Black Countess in 2 moves. 19-Push side tabs to match the numbers revealed on the book. 20-Drag a line to connect identical gems passing through all holes. 21-Place dominoes correctly according to the equations. 22-Choose 4 symbols that create the symbol shown when combined. The Collector's Edition version has 8 Wallpapers, Concept Art pictures, 6 Movie Video Cutscenes, 7 Music Soundtracks, 12 Achievements to earn, 18 re-playable Hidden Object Scenes, 24 re-playable Mini-Games, 37 Morphing Objects, 37 Collectible Mirror Shards (Eipix Signs) 4 Main Chapters (average length) +Bonus Chapter and a built-in Strategy Guide, enjoy, just don't look in the mirror!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Mystery Case Files This game has nothing to do with the Mystery Case Files I know. I played them all. The storyline is not interesting. I finished the game because I bought it, otherwise I would have been stopped earlier. I looked forward to play this game (I always do with new MCF), but it was very disapointing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Puzzle after puzzle after puzzle To quote a reviewer of the CE, "Don't buy this. Don't even do the trial. It's nothing but "map here", "map there", "skip puzzle" (the puzzles have no plausible nexus to the story line). It's so bad that it's embarrassing to say that I once ADORED Mystery Case Files. WHAT HAPPENED???" That about sums it up for me. The demo was almost all puzzles. You go from room to room and back doing nothing but finding yet another puzzle. I do not exaggerate. There were two very easy HOS during the demo, and they were no more germane to the story line than the puzzles were. If BFG were giving this game away, I wouldn't take it!
