Silent Nights: The Pianist is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from kidnapped sister Your family is one of musical talent. Your sister, a brilliant singer, is kidnapped. You need to find her, avoid people in hooded capes, and solve various puzzles. Most puzzles are easy. I needed explanations of the goal, but did not skip any. Lots of backtracking and no map to jump. That got a bit frustrating. Help says "nothing here, try elsewhere" messages. Open for obvious sequel. Nothing great, but enjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, if not terribly challenging Good storyline and plot, just the right amount of HOS, nice graphics and music. No map, but none needed. Hints point you in the right direction, but give nothing else away. I especially appreciated the attention to detail in the HOS - graphics are complex and found items stay found in subsequent visits to the same scene. Plot is a little cheesy and the puzzles aren't that difficult, but the game is fun and held my attention, so I didn't mind. SE has decent ending (with teaser for the bonus round), so you aren't left totally hanging if you don't buy the CE. Maybe a tad short, but would still recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well put together I enjoyed this game very much. It had me hooked and I didn't want to stop playing. I liked that I could use the item in inventory rather quickly and not forget where to use it. Not a lot of back and forth either, which I liked. The music was very pleasant. Plenty of HOs also. I recommend this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BETTER THAN AVERAGE BUT A LITTLE SHORT Game was on the shorter side – a little over 3 hours on casual mode (challenge mode also available). If your screen is on the dark side, you can add extra brightness. Mystery: You are to accompany your sister, Yvette, at a concert but he doesn’t show up at your Uncle Albert’s inn. Who took her and for what purpose? Good story line. Well-developed gameplay. Nice piano music, average graphics. No journal or map – there is some back and forth, but not too excessive. Interactive HOS (some with 2 moves to assemble an object). Hint system works very well - points in the direction to go if there is nothing to do in the scene. Ending was mysterious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable Got this on special and was sure worth it. I could not stop playing until it was done. Engaging story. Quite a few HOS but they were relevant and well done. The music was only mildly annoying, as when got too repetitive it stopped. It did end rather abruptly although satisfyingly, and I had a great time playing this.The puzzles were mostly challenging and I did skip a few which made the game shorter, but not TOO short. I think most will have fun with this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Silent Night: The Pianist Very good game; thoroughly enjoyed it. THE GAME: - I enjoyed the storyline. Some weird sect kidnapped a woman and tried to extract 'a skill' from her. All a bit dramatic. - Graphics were better than some I've seen, not too cartoony. - Movement between locations could have been better. Some took a while to load which got a bit annoying. - Music was a bit tedious though as it was just the same tune played over and over. But thankfully the music wasn't played all the way through. It just popped up here and there, and during HO scenes. HOS/PUZZLES: - HO scenes were very easy in my opinion. Often found all objects within a minute. But the interactive feature of them was good. Often you had to complete three actions before getting an object. This made up for the lack of difficulty. - Puzzles, for me, were great. Just the right level of difficulty that meant I had to think for a bit, but none of them had me tearing my hair out because they were too difficult. I had my pad and pen out trying to work stuff out, rather than clicking around hoping for the best, which so many puzzles have you doing these days! WHAT DO YOU GET?: - Surprisingly, no notebook and no map! - Only help was the usual hint button, and skip button in puzzles. - One feature I found I liked was that the Inventory and Menu/Hint buttons were at the top of the screen, rather than at the bottom. At first, I thought it was going to get on my nerves, but after a short while, I found it better. It seemed out of the way, and you didn't run the risk of clicking Go Back while trying to view your Inventory. - Two modes of play; casual and expert. LENGTH OF GAME: - Pretty good length; took me about three hours to complete. Should have got the CE though so there was more game play. I could have gone on longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked it but..... I thought it was on the short side. Would've liked to have a several more hours of play. Other than that it was very entertaining and the inventory was easy to get to......not always so in some good games.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun, Challenging Game This one has another missing person story, so nothing new there. I liked how you had to go from scene to scene in order to get things needed for the tasks. Drove me crazy carrying some of it around until I could use it, but that's half the fun. This one has all the bells and whistles. Loved that there were several steps to opening doors, cases, etc. Good fun for any level user.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Game but Ending? Loved the HOS. Having puzzles within the HOS is a trend I truly enjoy. Puzzles outside were easy but satisfying. Great story until the end. Ending was abrupt. More questions than answers. Some of the visuals were dreary but it was after WW 1 so it was appropriate. Love the setting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An entertaining game I definitely enjoyed the game. It was not as impressive as other similar games I have played and was about average overall, but it was still quite entertaining. The game had a good balance of adventure, hidden objects and puzzles - it did keep you moving along. It also had a pretty good, but familiar, story. I thought one of the characters, Uncle Albert, was excellent in terms of the voice over - one of the better ones in this type of game. This was not a pretty game, but the graphics were still clear and well drawn with good background effects. This game was introduced as a CE, and I am glad I waited and got the SE version - while it was a very good game, it was not as high in visual quality and game complexity for what I like to see in a CE. The length of this version seemed just right to me. Overall, a well-made and enjoyable game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent gameplay - good mini games I was surprised there wasn’t more piano music given the title of the game but it did not spoil my enjoyment. The voiceovers were excellent & I was able to change the brightness in the options, thanks to the developer for this. The graphics were clear & the artwork very good although the hidden object scenes were junk piles which was a let down. There were several different cats in the H0s – I wonder if they belong to the artists. There are two modes, casual with a 30 second hint recharge, sparkles & glints for areas of interest & challenge with a 60 second hint & sparkles for the H0 scenes only. The hint button is helpful; it will point which way to go if you get stuck. There are about the same number of H0s as there are mini puzzles; the puzzles were fun & some take patience to solve. There are the usual opening locks, Simon says, etc. but also some I haven’t played before. There is a skip button if you need it. As you get deeper into the game a lot of different areas open up & there is a great deal of going back & forth to either find items or returning to a scene after an item has been found. At times you will end up with a lot of inventory objects waiting to be used. There is no journal so might like to make a few brief notes about any codes you may find. The ending is excellent; it gets your heart racing as it makes you feel you won’t solve the puzzles to save your sister & leaves room for a sequel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked the game The game started out ok with the creepiest piano version of Silent Night ever heard! There is a choice of casual or challenge modes of play. You can change the volume for music & sound effects. You can choose full screen, wide screen correction, custom cursor & extra brightness <we used this>. In the beginning cut scene, there are no voice overs and minimal reading. Story line is good. In the hour demo, there were a couple times when there were voice overs. They were ok. The sound effects, however, are awesome. There was no journal or map. The inventory and find list were at the top of the screen. That's fine, but takes a while to get used to, since most are at the bottom (better it seems) The hidden object scenes were interactive. There were a few scenes that made us jump! The puzzles and/or mini games were not too challenging. The most frustrating thing about this game is the black screen delay when moving from scene to scene. All in all, with the exception of the very annoying delay between scenes, the game is fun with lots of interaction and awesome sound effects. It will be a purchase and a fun way to spend a rainy day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Choice for Weekend !!!! Worth the price. Help discover the truth about the disappearance of Yvette, abducted by a mysterious organization. Yes, another story of missing persons, but very well developed and attractive, keeping the interest and curiosity. Good graphics, outstanding sound quality, many great places to explore and interact, immersive atmosphere. Good amount of HOS, not too difficult, but beware: if you do not want to jump from the chair, do not click non-stop ! Well known but entertaining mini games, not really challenging. Guarantee of a fun and entertaining weekend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the extra HOS I played the CE previously and might still buy that version particularly since there is a sale on this weekend of 2 for 1 CE. Love HOS and this game has plenty; even the 'junk pile' effect of the HOS does work as most objects are easily found or assembled; then you get what you really want or need. Hints are very good in HOS where they outline what you are looking for. I always play casual in demo and use at least one hint in an HOS and one hint outside - directional arrows and telling that there is nothing available without using the hint is good so I can save them for a real necessity. Like another reviewer, I always know what tools I am going to need and am glad to find them very quickly. This is an older game? No map but movement from scene to scene in the demo hasn't gotten too difficult. I think I would want to play more than 1 hour at a time to keep up the rhythm and my memory of where I am and need to go. You do need to go back and forth a bit between areas which would make some type of map a good option. Colors and sounds are great - I agree with the person who noted the creepy playing of Silent Night - I am not that good on the piano myself so had to skip that puzzle at about the third level. Good, easy play, lots of HOS, some challenge but not at a frustrating level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but short... This game is good for those who want a break from long games: it is short, for me less than 2 hours... But the storyline is good; the graphics are clear; the HOS also. The mini-games are easy. There is no journal and no map; and a lot of walking... Even in the Challenge mode there are sparkles. Well, this game is not challenging at all. But as I said, it's good for a break...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from challenging I play in expert mode and this game was really cool. I did finish it in two days but that was okay. A couple of the "what do I do next" made me use the hint button. But that was only for maybe three of the puzzles, so take your time and you'll get through this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Demo only The storyline is good. The repetitive music can be annoying. The scenes are on the dark side and a little hard to see. The hos are also difficult due to blending of one object into another. The hint button fills quickly and can be used to let you know if you have to do anything in a scene which i really like since there is no map or journal. It isn't one of the best games but it is a good game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of fun Very fun game. Somewhat challenging. Good graphics and storyline. HOG's large enough to find! always a plus. I recommend for all age groups as there was limited contact with bad guys and not a lot of gore. A great game for relaxing fun.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from if only great graphics, voice overs & music. HO junk piles and challenging. i'm beginning to think i expect little things - such as ten second black wait screens between every movement thru game no longer exists - not so in this game and i haven't the patience to accept that in a good game this could not have been dealt with. an unfortunate no buy for me. frustratingly Matouk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frustrating is bad tempo ?I'm sorry in poor English that rely on machine translation always Is not difficult to find items and also very beautiful background. Nevertheless, it is unfortunately takes a long time to load the scene changes to become stress. 30 minutes shorter than usual because I felt it takes a long time to load. (Played only 30 minutes trial version) The time and could afford to heart, it may be to play the full version if further discounted price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fun challange I really like games like this one that have many different scenes/levels to adventure in. This game keeps you on the move and the puzzles are mostly challenging. The only thing I would ask of the creaters of these games is to find a lighter subject matter but still keep the skill level challanging - there must be stories that would be interesting but not creepy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mixed Feelings I think that some of the hidden object scenes are difficult. Most of them are difficult actually. It is not that I do not enjoy the challenge but at some times it is more extreme than I do. I like how it is a little more interactive than other hidden object games. I just enjoy being more indepent. For example, taking a screwdriver to each individual screw or pumping the air into the soccor ball we had to find. I love the music, it really was nice. My laptop is new so I doubt it is the problem. When the scences change to each destination, there is a few momments pause and black screen. Overall, the game was fun...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Played demo and throughtly enjoyed it. Good HOS not terribly challenging but fun. My only gripe was the wait between the scenes loading. I have several games on the go at the moment so I'm not buying at present but will do in the future. All round good un.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good, easy, but gets boring Not a bad game. Not hard and the HOS are ok. Good graphics and music is really good to keep you startled at times. Has a good flow. I just got bored real fast.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a bad game but ... This game is typical of many; you're searching for a missing person, it's dark and raining (why is it always raining in these games?) and have to dig around in a cellar, a crypt, etc etc. It's moderately enjoyable if you are looking for a traditional HOG for stress relief. There is one annoying thing about it; between scenes the screen blacks out for several seconds. It kind of distracts from the game play.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Game, but I wouldn't buy it. I used a game credit to purchase this game. I can't say I really enjoyed it. It took forever to switch scenes, and I didn't really enjoy the puzzles. It was just boring.
Date published: 2012-04-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not that fun for some reason There are a lot of things about this game that bug me: - the inventory is at the top of the screen. I play a lot of HO games, and the inventory has always been at the bottom. I keep mousing down out of habit. - contant "click to continue." While I appreciate not missing dialogue because I was called away, needing to click to continue after finishing an HO scene is overkill. - I found the HO scene click zones to be a little too tight. In other words, I would click on the edge of an item and it wouldn't recognize it. - a personal pet peeve is the zoom-in scene with a note that remains zoomable even though you've done what needs to be done there. I would prefer the model with a diary or journal, where all notes found go in there and can be re-read at will. (Also, I had no way to know that when I found a safe combination, it would be re-presented to me when I found the safe, so I was trying to memorize the number.) I like it when a scene is zoomable only while there is an action to be performed. That way I get feedback that I did everything I need to do. I like it best when the scene closes automatically once I've performed all the available actions. I suppose it's a little bit of a cheat, but it's what I like. - if there's a map in this game, I'm missing it There are tons of better games out there. I will likely finish it, since I bought it, but I'm not having that much fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intriguing Storyline But Not Much Challenge I usually save my money for CEs, but I got this one for free since I'd finished a punch card this month. I enjoyed the game somewhat, but I'm glad I didn't spend money on it. The storyline was intriguing, but I didn't feel the game lived up to it. I liked the robed figures and wanted to know more about them, and also wanted to know more about the backstory. Storyline wise, I had a couple of objections: 1. I didn't like the ending at all. It was anticlimatic. Nothing exciting happens when you finish (and Yvette is VERY whiny.) 2. At various points in the game, there are cut scenes where villains inform you, "Give up or else." and I kept wondering why they let me go so many times... 3. Uncle Albert didn't serve much of a purpose in the game. He showed up at various points and more or less hung around announcing he was an old man, and I could have done without him. Game wise, the problem was there was just no challenge. I especially disliked that when you solved certain puzzles it told you where to use the object you just got! ("Oh good. Now I can use X to do Y." and the like.) I always play on the hardest mode available because I want a challenge, and it irritated me that the game had blatant hints built in like that. I found most puzzles pretty easy. Some were a bit irritating because of speed considerations and after about 2000 tries I ended up skipping the very last puzzle because I knew the answer but could not click on the very last button without time running out. There were also too many HOS for my liking. I did like that the HOS only listed a few objects at a time, and the interactive ones were logical. Another plus was the objects in general made sense for the HOS scenes rather than being completely random. I also liked the random click penalty--I jumped out of my seat when it happened and was careful not to do that again! All in all, it was an enjoyable way to spend a few hours, and worth using credits or coupons to get for free, but I don't think it's worth paying for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from painfully average I'm sorry to say I found this game to be painfully average. The graphics were alright but much too drab and brown. The story could have been more developed during gameplay. Puzzles were fairly easy. There were way too many HOS for me. There is no map but the Hint helps. Really nothing special stood out. Boring.
