Mystery Case Files: Crossfade Collector's Edition is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent addition to the series Not sure what the wailing and gnashing of teeth is all about, this is an excellent fit in the Mystery Case Files series. It has plenty of puzzles, some are similar to the older games, some are new. There is a twist on the Rube Goldberg types, and who isn't up for a change of pace? This is making me eager to go back and replay Broken Hour and Madame Fate ;) The voice work is excellent. Graphics are top notch and I love the story. I 100% endorsed this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GAME! I love this series I haven't submitted a review in years but I had to for this one. It took hours to play, always a plus. Awesome and immersive storyline. Great all around. I was happy to see another Ravenhurst game. There is one game in this series from about a decade ago. It has been stuck in my head since I first played it. I wish I could remember the title!! It had a scene with pregnant women and was shocking for a hidden object game but, I loved it!! lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great game from Mystery Case files After a long time I enjoyed again Mystery Case File creatures. It was a wonderful game and I was very happy seen references back to games I had seen several years ago. I started been a member of Big Fish Games with Mystery case files games somewhere in 2011-12 .So graphics, puzzles,story everything was perfect. Some puzzles were difficult for me but with guide's help every was o.k. Thank you Mystery Case Files an d please try to give us such nice games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'M GIVING IT 5-STARS BECAUSE IT'S A GR8 GAME NOT BECAUSE IT'S A GR8 MYSTERY CASE FILES GAME BECAUSE IT ISN'T Completed Game a little over 7.0 Hours (including completion of all puzzles & Bonus Chapter) 20 Main Game Scene Locations +7 CE Bonus Chapter Difficulty Range: Beginner-Intermediate Thank goodness you're alive Master Detective! Now for the bad news, the energy blast you caused collided with key moments in the past that have altered the future, oh snap! Timelines have been altered in four previous case files Charles Dalimar from Ravenhearst, Merideth Huxley from the Broken Hour Richard, Alison, and Ankou from the Black Veil, and our beloved Madame Fate from Fate's Carnaval. You must restore the 4 Elements and correct the twists in each of these cases to set them on a course that will concur with the original outcome. Let's be honest, this does not meet MCF standards! It is an amazing game, clearly, GrandMa Studios has outdone themselves and poured their heart and souls into this game, it's probably one of the best games they've ever created! But that just isn't enough folks, you know it isn't! Even the last developer of this beloved series wasn't doing it justice towards the end, they were showing signs of becoming burned out after hanging on to the reins for 9 games straight. Most fans agree that Mystery Case Files is the crème de la crème of HOPA's, some gamers don't play anything but MCF. My point is, this is an honorary series and it has to be held to a higher standard than any other game. It can't just be a good game, a 5-star game, it has to be a blow your socks off, knock you off your computer chair, talk about it for years to come, kind of game! We ALL talk about our favorite Dire Grove, 13th Skull, Madame Fate, Fates Carnaval, and who doesn't love Ravenhearst, Return to Ravenhearst, and Escape From Ravenhearst? Crossfade is a fantastic game but it's not in a MCF league, it's never going to be a 13th Skull-Dire Grove kind of game...and that's what it has to be each and every time, it can't be a hit or miss or the MCF franchise's name will eventually mean nothing!? Placing simplistic back-to-back puzzles at the end of each chapter isn't fooling true MCF fans, a Rube Goldberg puzzle is a series of clues and tasks that need to be solved in an indirect and overly complicated way. In a true MCF game, you would have to find codes and clues, each code or clue would help to solve a small puzzle which would reward the player with a riddled clue, a code or a part necessary to unlock the next puzzle section until eventually, the player solved the entire door puzzle and entered the next chapter. It was the most satisfying sense of accomplishment, these were the most unique games ever created and it was what set Mystery Case Files apart from all the other games, it instantly branded the franchise...and the absence of them instantly disenfranchised it as well! Collectibles & Morphing Objects (CE version only) There are 54 Evidence Pieces, one of which morphs. Because they are small and plain brown cards with a simple opaque outline of a magnifying glass on them (until they go into the evidence room) they actually blend nicely and morph at a nice rate to make them challenging yet not too frustrating to find... eventually. There are also 20 Zoom Zone Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces that allow you to assemble a downloadable picture, some of them are tucked away into dark corners of the zoom zones but many of them are quite large and hard to miss. GrandMa does treat us right with the collectible features, after completing the Main Game you can go into the Extra's menu and click on any of the Evidence or Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces that you may have missed to be taken to the scene to search for those collectibles. After completing the Bonus Chapter, those become available as well! Gadget/Helper: Master Detective has a high-tech gadget that doesn't even need a new battery after the cave-in, but naturally, it needs a new antenna and it's good to go, not a scratch on it! The Gadget is used for a couple of random things such as communication and location that doesn't require anything other than the push of an accept button. After that, the Gadget gets tucked away on the inventory bar until it starts to glow red. The Gadget is then used 4 times on 4 characters to fix the alternate timelines. Each time it is used you will play 2 mini-games. The first mini-game requires you to replicate the image shown on the bottom portion of the gadget by clicking and dragging columns and rows. The second mini-game is a simplistic, Spot 8 Differences between the two images shown on the gadget. The mini-games are the same every time it is used, they just use different images. Hidden Object Scenes: There are only 7 Main Hidden Object Scenes, +2 in the CE Bonus Chapter! Although I'm personally not a fan of most HOP's lately, I think this is a big mistake on Granny's part because most people play these games for the HO's and hate the puzzles and this is a very puzzle-heavy game! To make matters worse for HO fans, they are mostly Interactive List Finds, there is one Silhouetted Shape Find where you drag tile sections to align objects, and one with Listed Multiples of the Same Object Finds, but all the others were simple Listed Item Finds. One of the scenes required using an ouija cursor to find the listed items on a wooden plaque and one of the listed items was a candle but there were 2 candles on the plaque, one of which wasn't acceptable? Another scene in Madame Fates Carnaval seemed like it was going to be cool, I loaded up a rifle to shoot items and I thought I was going to have the opportunity to shoot objects on a moving conveyor belt to mimic a Carnaval arcade game, but I didn't actually use the rifle, my rifle just sat there while I clicked on the objects with a cursor that turned into a hand...what a disappointment and such a lost opportunity! Mini-Games: There are a whopping 52 Mini-Games +9 in the CE Bonus Chapter. My biggest complaint is that MCF is special for one reason...the Rube Goldberg Door Puzzles which obviously GrandMa Studios is NOT capable of accomplishing at even a basic level, so if you can't pull this feature off, don't accept the challenge. Instead of unique Rube Goldberg door puzzles, they simply place multiple puzzles back-to-back at the end of every chapter. There is also a repetitive mini-game associated with the Gadget (see above under Gadgets) Below are some of my personal favorites: 1-Enter the code using directional arrows to turn clockwise or counter-clockwise in either 3, 4, or 7 spaces. 2-Move the heart token to the end of the maze while avoiding the badge tokens. The arrow shows the direction of the badge token's next move. 3- Change all dots to the correct color according to the image by dropping balls from the top to hit the dots which will change their color each time they are hit. 4-Connect numbered squares to circle squares. The numbers on a square indicating how many spaces it can fit. Select a number square and then a direction, a path can extend further by crossing another path. 5-Place tiles so they don't repeat in any row or column. 6-Balance the scales with equal amounts. 7-Guess the combination of colored buttons within eight tries. Yellow highlights means the color and placement are correct-blue means the color is correct but the placement is incorrect. 8-Select the prisms to guide each ray of light to its matching hourglass. Bonus Chapter: (CE version only) Madame Fate sees all and she has predicted that Alister will return! As Madame Fate scrambles to stop the ritual that will allow the evil Alister Dalimar to return there's one minor detail she didn't see coming, a TRAP! This is an average-length chapter that takes place over 7 Scene Locations with an additional 9 Mini-Games and a measly 2 Hidden Object Scenes. Madame Fate does have a Crystal Ball Gadget that is used 3 times during the Bonus Chapter that involves a mini-game/hidden object scene as well. You will continue collecting the final 14 Evidence Pieces/Cards and the final 8 Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces as well. If you missed any of the collectibles you can return to the scenes to pick them up (the main game collectibles become available after completing the main game and the bonus chapter collectibles become available after completing the bonus chapter) Collector's Edition Extra's: 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art Pictures, 30 Movie Cutscene Videos, 8 Music Soundtracks ?, 9 Replayable Mini-Games?, 9 Replayable Hidden Object Scenes, 15 Achievements, 54 Evidence Pieces which are Cards with magnifying glasses (1 Morphing 1 Regular) 20 Zoom Zone Jigsaw Puzzle Pieces (used to assemble downloadable picture) 5 Main Chapters (Collapse) +Bonus Chapter (Prediction) and a Built-In Strategy Guide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh, wow, GrandMA has redeemed themselves! I slaughtered MCF The Harbinger, because it was the worst attempt at a MCF game. GrandMA has listened to all the critics and done a 180. This game is night and day from their last attempt, they have really redeemed themselves! We are going into the past, and in the first chapter we revisit Ravenhearst. Finally there is some challenge to the many puzzles I have encountered in the demo, proper MCF style. I'll include some of my all time favorites for other players if you haven't discovered them yet: - Haunted Hotel Charles Dexter Ward - The Lake House - Children of silence - Nightmare adventures (once you get over the graphics there are amazing storylines and puzzles in both games) - Surface - Mystery of Another World - Echoes from the past - Witch's prison (in fact all the games in this series are great) - Hallowed Legends - Ship of Bones - Enigma Agency - The case of shadows - The Lost Lands series - MCF Fates Carnival - MCF 13th Skull - MCF Dire Grove Thank you GrandMA for this gem. Can't wait til I get home later and can play the whole game. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crossover So I jumped into this not playing all of the games listed within from which the games have crossed over into this one but with a twist. I am overall impressed with this game, this is only Grandma Studios second Mystery Case Files game and they have to incorporate a story from two different studios of the past. I can not imagine the pressure they may have been under. If you haven't played other mystery case files games before it may not bother you for me it got me interested in playing the other ones that I have not played but it does seem that there might be a little spoiler in their for the stories so beware. Most games that have a Bonus Chapter do nothing for the story and some can say that is the same with this one but it does have everything come full circle, meaning that the bonus chapter doesn't leave the story open ended in that sense which I appreciated. This game is a fun good time and honestly I do not see how you could not enjoy it and it is a risky play changing companies for a series this big under Big Fish's name. Also this isn't the first time they have used the other cases idea I think in Mystery Case Files: Moths to a Flame and Mystery Case Files: Rewind both used a similar using old cases but this one does take it to where I have not see a Mystery Case Files game use before. I would fully recommend getting this game and okaying the MCF series. This game has some good puzzles too not always the hardest but some of my favorite types of puzzles were in this game and I do see myself replaying this in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new favorite! Loved everything about this game. Grandma really got it right. Excellent visuals, A wide variety of HOPS and puzzles, some puzzles a little easy, but the design was enjoyable anyway. I especially liked that the useful objects and activities involving them, as well as the HOPs and puzzles, all made sense within the context of the story. Before replaying Crossfade, I went back to The Black Veil and The Harbinger, which I had only played once. Would highly recommend replaying those two plus Madame Fate, Broken Hour and Ravenhearst if you don't remember those well. Crossfade enhanced my enjoyment of these games, and refreshing my memory about the earlier games greatly enhanced my enjoyment of Crossfade. Grandma seems to just get better and better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Again, not an MCF but certainly a great game! This game scores highly in every way for me. It had awesome voice-overs ; unique HOS with clever points of difference compared to other games ; fun mini games ; clever little sets of tasks to do ; excellent artwork transporting you into the scenes ; great music and, a certainly imaginative storyline. Don't miss out - play this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Graphics and a Fun Engaging Storyline I spent this afternoon on this game. Much longer than I was intending, but I got so caught up in the storyline I just had to keep on playing. However it was time well spent. I loved the graphics, that were bright and clear, as well as the multiple storylines that drew on previous versions and helped to maintain the pace. The puzzles were enjoyable and the only thing that would make it better for me would be an option to play Match 3 in the Hidden Object scenes. A great new addition to the Mystery Case Files games that I am sure fans of the series will enjoy. I would definitely recommend it. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Why must all new MCF games be compared with earlier entries? I have read too many reviews of this game wherein the writers choose to cast doubt on the effectiveness of the new game since merely because it apparently does not measure up to previous entries. Each game should stand up to scrutiny based on its own merit. I find that Crossfade does just that. Using references to prior MCFs such as Ravenhearst, Fates Carnival and others leads me to reminisce about the genius of some of the older MCF games. As to the game play itself, Crossfade has a good mix of easy and hard to solve. This entry has what I want in a good HOPA. Enough said.
