Customer Reviews
Victorian Mysteries: The Yellow Room is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 114.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mystery like no other Like the 1985 movie "Clue" in which everyone is a suspect. Only downfall is the graphics are a little outdated, but the voiceover can make up for that. As positive reviewers have said, this is very underrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Victorian Mystery This is a beautiful game - extraordinarily done artwork - ... and while it has it's little share of the macabre, it is delightful to see colorful flowers and scenery and to encounter sweet puppies and bunnies that looked like the real Mccoy. I am sure that I will play this many times as I have Victorian Mysteries Woman in White and will get lost for hours in the antique atmosphere. They just don't make stuff the way they used to then. Thank you as always, Felix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My love for Everything French came Rushing Back at me. I LOVE THIS GAME! Not much of a review, but that's how I feel. I do not care one bit that there is no hint button. Back in the old-school adventure game days (and I'm only 32) there were few walk-throughs to be had-so you had to get the brain working and figure things out on your own. With this game, I had to put on my thinking cap a few times but that made the game more interesting to me. Everything follows a logical pattern. So if you get stuck, actually imagine that you ARE the detective that's there...and what would YOU do next? This strategy worked well for me. I adore the French accents, but French is my second language so I was pleased to play a game that had something besides the typical American voice-acting. I did see some gripes about this (I honestly don't know why) but it adds depth to the story-it would not have been as believable if everyone talked without an accent during a game set in early France. This game does NOT hold your hand. You are a detective, meant to collect and photograph evidence, interview characters and eventually solve the mystery. Too often in games, the developer does most of the thinking for us, but not in this game. We are often left to our own creative devices--I have been having a hoot playing through this and I long for more detective story games to SOLVE much along the same lines as this one. Graphics are crisp and clear; hidden object scenes and puzzles are spaced out well and not over-used. The story is brilliant and flows smoothly (I was also intrigued that it was based on a book that I will now have to find and read). Another perk about the story is that it is NOT the same old formula that players are getting sick of. It's not predictable and it IS unique--it's what we've been wishing and waiting for! Don't let the "no hint button" scare you away. Put on your Sherlock Holmes outfit and play with confidence-you will figure it out! A must buy, and I am positive it will be added to my favorites-rarely do I give out 5 stars. As for length: I've been playing these types of games for several years, both PC and console gamer- so I consider myself an expert-I'm not finished yet, only a little less than 1/2 way through, and I've spent at least two hours, if not more. I read everything (newspaper clippings, etc) and often take a look at the evidence gathered so far, so I thoroughly read the journal. If I were to guess, for me this game should run, for an expert player who takes their time, at least 5 hours to complete. And the journal is well done also. I like the concept of 'tabbed' journals where you can go to see specific things: Evidence collected, Character Bios, Story, etc. The task list is kept separate as well but is also imbedded in the map, which is also done well and should help anyone who might get stuck. It shows you were you need to go and for what (evidence, puzzle or hidden object scene). A lot of detail went into the small things, and that adds up to many great things. Worth a free game coupon at the very least, but well worth paying full price for, IMO. Happy gaming and I hope to see more games like this! (Hint, Hint developers)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Enthralling Game - Loved It This review is based on the whole game playing in hard mode. * A mystery HOPA game (hidden object puzzle adventure) * 5 chapters * 2 modes of play: Easy/Hard * Hard mode has sparkles just for the HO scenes. * Hint/Skip take at least a couple of minutes. Very slow. * Hint is only available for the HO scenes. * Journal which you take pictures. Also has tabs for evidence, characters, and story. * Map shows your present location, areas of interest: evidence, needs investigating, HO scenes, and completed areas. You can't use it to travel back/forth locations however. * Also shows list of task(s) that need to be completed. * Graphics: Characters look very realistic and also has several cut scenes throughout the game. * Voice overs for all the characters but your own. My overall impression of the game: Well I really loved this game. Very enthralling story/mystery. I was hooked to this right from the get go and held my interest to the very end. I did not stop playing this until I got to the end. This game is kinda on the lines of an Agatha Christie or Sherlock Holmes type of story in my opinion. The graphics right along with the cut scenes I found to be very well done. Also the voice overs. I found this game to have more "adventure" to it than HO scenes cause there is a lot of traveling back/forth. Adventure side the usual standard fare of inventory items. While this game didn't have a hint button in regards to where to go/do next I did find the map pretty helpful but i will admit I did get hung up at the end of chapter 3 so used the walk through for just that one part only. Other than that I had no problems. I did have to think a bit on where to go/do next but far from frustrating. HO scenes I found to be very well done. Only had to use a couple of hints. Majority pretty ease to locate. Puzzles I found pretty easy: Putting together pieces of letters, gears, hit in right sequence, match/move circle rings. Also a slider puzzle. I only skipped one puzzle. As for game length: I was quite surprised I got through this in 3 1/2 hours. That's rare for me since I'm a slow game player. I take my time. I found this to be long enough for me however as the game seemed longer than that so no complaint about the game length. Overall, I give this 5 stars. While I did get hung up on one part of the game I overall found this to be a pretty relaxing and a fun game. Thanks Big Fish and developer for an excellent game here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Under rated Hi everyone, This is my first ever review of a game but have been a long time member of BFG. I've purchased many, many games like this one and I feel so far it is under rated. I played the demo on the most challenging level and I think those that have played many games like this will really like it. It would be frustrating for a beginner for sure but for me I loved it except as mentioned in another review, I don't care for the "pick your question" dialogue. Otherwise it's a great and challenging game. I like to get my money's worth, to figure out how to do things on my own and not have my hand held through the game. Some things in the HO scenes are a bit small but I like that challenge also. Even playing as an expert I found it was pretty easy to figure out where and what to do next without a hint button and there is a hint button in the HO scenes, but again, it's not for a beginner. Thanks for reading my first review! Kim : )

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well done game Like their other games you have to really explore each scene completly. The other thing to remember is to think out of the box such as when you need a screwdriver think of what else could be used. I have 3 of their games and find this latest to be just as well done. Hope people will give it a try even if there is only a hint button on the HO puzzles because you do get help from the map and the task list.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yay, wish there were more like it!!!! FINALLY! A good mystery!!! If you want something that is intriquing and fun but not too dark and ugly, definitely check this out. This was a fun adventure mystery with some H0 puzzles thrown in... it was not 'easy' nor was it difficult, it was simply 'different' than the generic game that is 'as per usual' and therefore I believe the ratings were not as high as they should be here. There is no 'hint' button so you are on your own to figure things out and that's the way I like my games. Victorian Mysterys: The Yellow Room was a GREAT GAME and I've been gaming for more than 25 years so I have quite a few to compare it to. I'd give it 10 stars if I could and hope there will be more like it in the NEAR future from BFG. So, encore, encore devs, give us more of these, please! Thanks! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Beautiful Game! I loved the graphics, which are absolutely beautiful and work so well with the time period. They are somewhat darker than normal but that's okay, it was perfectly easy to see everything needed. I moved from scene to scene without a hitch, and the hidden objects, though a bit more difficult to find than usual, were somewhat different than the usual fare--for example, the standard hidden crowbar was missing, at least in the demo.. How can that be? lol Amazingly, I survived without a crowbar. This game is worth a buy for the graphics/scenery along and it is worth the time spent playing it. Very well done developers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY fun game!! Im surprised this game doesn't have more stars because its really FUN. Its not the hardest game although there were a few spots where I was absolutely stuck as I played in advanced mode and there is no hint outside of the hidden object scenes but eventually I stumbled upon what to do. However, this game kept my attention because for one I am a sucker for crime novels/games. I had not read the book this is based on just heard of it but I thought the storytelling in this was very well done. I happen to like the pick and select dialogue because it makes it more murder mystery who done it like in real life with the asking of the questions and I LOVED the voiceovers in this game. They are EXTREMELY well done!! The ending was marvelous! Finally a game that does voiceovers to close the story and tell everything that happened! It was like reading a book but playing it! This game is an example of what I want to see more of. Games based on books that are done well and move along well unlike some other offerings I can think of which have been pure dialogue and boring. Like I said this wasn't the hardest game but the fun factor is what made me give it 5 stars. Its also one of those games I didn't buy right away but I kept thinking about so I had to go back and get it to settle my mind and Im so glad I did. Also, I remember this developers first victorian mysteries which was back in the old style hidden object only scenes and although perfect for that era of gaming, would have been a bore today. So I am glad to see that the developers stepped up their game and modernized this one! Truly enjoyed it! I didn't even mind that there were sparkles to light up the hidden object scenes in advanced mode, I loved this game so much! I never give 5 star ratings but this game taught me it doesn't have to be a great CE, stars, bells and whistles to make it be an enjoyable great game!! Kudos! I look forward to more! Oh & as for length, I usually am a fast player but this game took me roughly 4-5 hours because there was so much to do and explore and since it had a fair amount of hidden object scenes, I stopped playing periodically and would return the next day. I can't say enough good things about this game. xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I didn't want it to end! "The Yellow Room" is one of the best HOG I've ever played! I preface by stating that I am slightly biased in my judgment, as I was already a fan of Gaston Leroux's 1908 mystery novel of the same name, but this is still a great game! Part hidden object, part mystery, there is a lot to enjoy about it. The scenery is beautiful and evocative, the voice-overs and music great--listen for excerpts from Mozart's Requiem during the Hidden Object scenes--and the puzzles are challenging and fun without being ridiculously hard. There are lots of great areas to explore, and while there is a lot of back and forth, it doesn't get to the point of being tedious. The storyline is great, and if you've read the book, you'll appreciate how faithful it is to Leroux's story. I was really sad when it ended, and wish that BigFish would make a game of the sequel, "The Perfume of the Lady in Black"! All in all, I really enjoyed this game, and highly recommend it!
