Mystery Case Files: Crossfade is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Return of a fun MCF game! Fantastic game. I own all of the MCF games and too wish I could play through some Rube Goldberg puzzles but this gameplay was excellent. HOGs have become often completely doldrum for me as I have played so many of them. Crossfade made me excited and slightly giddy playing it as it was THAT good. I was NEVER bored and very much enjoyed the gameplay. Top notch job GrandMA Studios!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A trip down memory lane Great fun - it helps [but not necessary] to have played the other MCF games. The master detective has to "fix" time and to do that has to interact with old enemies. Very interesting, well paced, good challenge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable game. I'm not a huge Mystery Case Files game fan but I don't dislike them either, I judge each on their own merits, and this one I really did enjoy. I Thought the graphics were great and the mix of hidden objects and puzzles was very well balanced. I really enjoyed the puzzles within puzzles games, they made you think and they challenged me so I was very happy when I finally made it through them. The sounds were perfect for the environment too. All things considered, music, graphics, story, games, hidden objects scenes this was one of the best games I've played in a long while. Yes, I do recommend this game

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FUN GAME I enjoyed revisiting old characters but as others have said you don't have to have played the originals. The varied hidden objects were good and the puzzles not that hard. I really liked the multiple puzzles where you had to complete four different ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from RESTORE THE TIMELINE REVIEW FROM COMPLETED CE GAME I really enjoyed this game and it was fun to catch up on previous characters from earlier games. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced, Hardcore and Custom modes; * Interactive map; * 13 Achievements; * Find 54 pieces of evidence; * Find 20 jigsaw puzzles; * Replayable HOPs and Mini-games. The graphics are superb. The colours are well defined and each scene is crisp to the eye and items you need are clear to find. The MCF music you will know well and I had it turned up very loud. I just love listening to this music. The hidden object games are mainly interactive straightforward. These are easy to do and you can get back to the game quickly. I loved the mini-games and there are a huge variety. Some are very easy and others will take you a while to do. What looks easy can have a twist to it. There are a few super puzzles to do, but honestly these weren't hard to do and the instructions are easy to follow. There are 2 pieces of evidence to find in each scene. They look like a magnifying glass. The first one is also easy to find, but the second one can be more elusive. I always made sure I found these first. There is a tag to the left of your screen to let you know if you have found them or not which is helpful just in case you get distracted. The puzzle pieces are not in every scene, so just check the tag to make sure you have one in that scene. Get them all and you get achievements. After the game you can replay the HOPs and mini-games to get 100% accuracy. I always enjoy replaying these, especially if I took too long the first time round. All up the game and extras took me about 8 hours to play. I think Grandma did a terrific job and I felt like I was playing an MCF game. They did put their heart and soul into making this game and it shows (compared to the last game, which I was disappointed in. Not this time. This game triumphed.) Overall, definitely worth playing this game. The storyline is terrific and the HOPs and mini-games are fun to do. The bonus games is about Madame Fate, which is separate to the main game. Comes recommended. Happy playing fishes. Stay safe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GR8 STORY BUT NOT A GR8 MCF GAME 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 being 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 4 out of 5 by from Okay Game I enjoyed it. Nice graphics, atmosphere and good game play but there were a lot of mini games.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work! This game has been sitting for me when halfway thru I could get no further. The walkthrough was no help because there was nowhere to go and the skip did not work. Then, hooray, I got an update notice. I downloaded it and surprise - nothing had changed. Still got nowhere to proceed. What gives?
