Mystery Case Files ®: 13th Skull ™ Collector's Edition is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An unexpected challenge '13th Skull' is the seventh installment of the hidden object and puzzle video game series 'Mystery Case Files' where you - the detective - are sent to the swampy southern state of Louisiana in the United States to investigate the disappearance of Marcus Lawson, husband of Sara and father of Magnolia Lawson. Shortly before his disappearance, the Lawsons moved into a manor said to have once been inhabited by the infamous 1800s pirate Phineas Crown. From the title of this review, this game was an unexpected challenge: more puzzles of differing difficulty were introduced and point-and-click navigation was given much more emphasis. I actually had to consult the strategy guide at one point because I was just dumbfounded. More characters were also introduced, with the ability to interrogate them regarding several subjects surrounding your investigation or the current conversation. What very much impressed me was the storyline, and seeing as this was my first time playing the game, it was quite a roller coaster ride! ? The visuals and accompanying environmental effects makes you feel at home in a rainy and gloomy swamp. ? The music is fitting and descriptive of the swampland culture. ? The live-action acting is a step up, and with good reason, as there are more characters you can interact with than any game in the series so far. ? A new achievement system with a humble number of eight achievements were also introduced, encouraging players a more "investigative" and careful playthrough. As with any good game, there are downsides: just like my previous review, replayability may suffer as there are more cases of puzzles than hidden objects (but the difficulty of the puzzles kind of makes up for it). I also found the ending (of the bonus game) a bit underwhelming compared to everything that has happened in the game. In conclusion, this game is definitely something I can recommend to my fellow seasoned MCF players and even players with a knack for investigation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mystery Case Files - 13th skull Have been playing hidden object/adventure games for almost ten years. Played many games. 13th skull is heads above any other game. Graphics top notch. Challenge is extreme in some areas and the storyline holds your interest throughout. You will not be disappointed, but be ready for the challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made game! Well what can I say about this game that hasn't been siad before? Probably nothing! but, here goes... First of all this game is kind of nostalgic for me, I've been a member for like 7 years, and this game is the very first game I played! I absolutely loved the 'real life' actors in 13th Skull. I've played 'Dire Grove' also. same thing, Loved it!! Loved the creepy chilling south atmosphere to 13th Skull! I don't know why Bigfish doesn't make more of these type of games! i.e. 'real life actors. I Highly recommend this title plus Dire grove' :) Peace out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best of all time! This game is easily, hands-down, one of the best games I've ever played! It has everything: HO's, puzzles, story line, characters, scenery, and humor. The interaction with live actors wasn't annoying, but fit perfectly into the game. This game gave me hours, even days of play time, and kept me intrigued the whole time. Oh, if we only had more like this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I'd expect the south to look like!!!! Love the southern houses, bayous, boats, music and hillbillies. This all sets the atmosphere of the game plus it's raining constantly which makes the game gloomy. Too many bright colors and cheeriness in other mystery games. There's also a great twist in the end, I did not see this coming. 13th Skull, Escape from Ravenhearst and Dire Grove are the classics that you can't miss out on. I highly recommend these games if you're interested in more than just HO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GAME I have owned this game since it first came out . I love ,love, love it. The real life character's make the game so much better than any other game I have ever played . The reality of the setting is wonderful .You travel all over the plantation . I now have my grandchildren playing it . Wish BFG would make another as good as this one .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Game in the Series This was the highest quality game of this genre I've played so far. And I've been at it for years upon years now. So much variety in gameplay, entertainingly over-the-top live acting, and its actually original! More than you can say for most hogs, where its an endless sea of cliched item fetching with little substance. I was so glad they went in this direction with Dire Grove and Shadow Lake, hiring real actors is such a fantastic idea. Now they've topped themselves with 13th Skull. I truly hope they let this streak of great games continue. No more cookiecutter bland hogs without soul, just more like this one, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rascals Rule Here! Wow. Graphics were great. Loved the use of real people. Can you imagine this game in virtual reality. Wait, that just gave me goose bumps. I can smell the decaying house, I can hear the mosquitoes coming in swarms, I can smell the farts at the bar and can see the dim light from the voo doo house. Only thing that was hard for me to see was a little girl dying...even if she was a liar and a brat. Still looking for two golden tickets because I refuse to cheat. Will keep trying though. You really need to give this game a chance. Loved it!
