Customer Reviews
9: The Dark Side is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 135.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from AN ALL-TIME FAVORITE GAME While going back into all of the games that I have on my “favorite games” list I found 9: The Dark Side marked as a game that I love. In replaying the game, I remembered why this is one of my favorite games. The gameplay is excellent. The graphics and cutscenes are crystal clear. The voice overs are extremely good and the music is almost epic. The CE version of this game contains the in-game strategy guide and a few other extras such as wallpapers, concept artwork, achievements, music and cutscenes. I would suggest the CE because of the built-in strategy guide that does provide some extra help for those who are new to the HOPA genre. In playing these older games, I love that almost every one of them had an excellent diary or journal. The diary always contains helpful information that I might have missed earlier. Although there is no map, it really isn’t needed as the game is easy to navigate. The HO scenes are excellent and I certainly found the puzzles a bit challenging although not daunting. All in all, when replaying the game, I can see why it is on the list of my favorite games. As always, please try the demo to see if 9: The Darkside is a game you will enjoy. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Phew!!!! I'm exhausted! This is such a good game! Very very taxing and hard as far as I'm concerned (other brainboxes might think differently?) and I would have been happier with a jump-map but the controls were good enough to make things less difficult in this respect. I think most people would either use the hint button a lot or might benefit from the walkthrough that Fish thoughtfully provide (I wonder why? lol). Try it and I bet you buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TURN OFF THE LIGHTS, PUT ON YOUR HEADPHONES... This game may deserve more than 5 stars. There were at least 3 times that I jumped in fright, and that is not easily acclomplished, I don't scare often. I have to admit I was playing it late at night, in the dark, with the headphones, but WOW!!! I purchased this game three years ago, and somehow never played it until now. I was surprised by how well the graphics were done (considering how old the game is). I loved the gameplay, everything made sense. The HOS were straightforward, nothing fancy, but enjoyable. AMAZING GAME! Just goes to show you, BF has been bringing great games and entertainment to our lives for the past several years. Thanks BF.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Dark Side What a fantastic game with a fantastic story! The Guardian Army has returned from the Crusades and are fighting a war to protect a sacred amulet. The Guardians called for the dark side to open, but the dark side shows no mercy and destroys everyone. Only 9 survive and retreat into the fortress, never to return. As the descendant of the Guardians it is up to you to enter the fortress and use the amulet to close the dark side and save Prague from evil. I couldn't help but feel as if I were actually searching this long abandoned fortress myself which is a testament to how professionally produced this game actually is. The HOS were very well done and are interactive list finds. I will admit that I skipped a few puzzles just before pulling my hair out! You will receive an amulet from one of the dearly departed Guardians, which will allow you to "see" hidden clan symbols. I really liked this game and think that the SE is the better buy, enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Liked it Nice graphics, well done HOS, interesting puzzles, good length and chance to use your memory skills. The only complaint are the sparkles for the HOS even in hardcore mode.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Adventure You are the last descendant of the Clan of 9. You obtain an amulet to help you in gathering 9 Medallions of Power to activate the crystal ball and destroy evil. There are good hidden objects to find and many mini-puzzles. Although this is an SE game you don't need a strategy guide as the hint button is very specific. The graphics are very well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is one of the best game i played so far Usually i can find something i do not like in a game, even i those really famous and well-done series. But i can not find anything i do not like in this one 1) The HO scene is crisp clear, and there is no repeat HO on one spot. 2) It has right amount of adventure, puzzle and HO, There are slightly more adventure and puzzle than HO, but that is what i like. 3) There is no map, but you really do not need it because it has no that much back tracking. 4) Even the whole game is crisp clear, it kept the CPU and GPU temperature down while i am using a large monitor with laptop. I have not played the sequel "9: The Dark Side Of Notre Dame" yet, and i hope it will be at least as good at this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous HO Game Gee Whiz! What a great game this turned out to be. It is so challenging that I needed assistance playing. There is a map included and I used it a lot to explore areas in Notre Dame and Paris. I consider this game to be very difficult but enjoyable. Playing time is extremely long. You certainly get your moneys worth. I have played many games that I consider to be very, very good. This game is extraordinarily good.
