Dark Alleys: Penumbra Motel Collector`s Edition is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 130.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Classic That is Fun to Play Again and Again!! I bought this game back in 2012 and played it through and loved it!! I loved it so much that I remembered I loved it 3 1/2 years later! I just replayed it and had a blast once again. I really like that it doesn't have any H.O.S. to slow the story down, which moves very quickly. Most of the time it was obvious to me where an object in the inventory was needing to be used and I would travel there and use it. There didn't seem to be too much traveling around required--most of the objects were used in the present scene or the last 2 or 3 scenes. There were a few times where I missed something in a scene and had to use the strategy guide to figure out what it was. I could have used the hint but I don't like to in this kind of game. The mini-games were awesome!! Challenging and fun!! Graphics were very detailed drawings that added to the atmosphere of the setting of the game. In other words, great! Storyline kept my interest and intrigued me to continue playing to find out what the true story was behind the murders of this family so many years ago. A winning game that I am sure I will replay again sometime. The screen would not play widescreen on my computer but that was a minor detractor from the game play. I highly recommend this game even with all the newer games out there. It is fun to play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decent effort This game reminds me alot like Fright, right down to the use of real actors. Its the first ERS game that I have played that actually takes place in (relatively) contemporary times. They did a good job. There is some hokeyness of course, which is expected for this genre. I wasn't too crazy with some of the music, which wasn't scary enough but the graphics were just fine. The interesting thing is that there are no HOS scenes in this game! Its all minigames. The game is relatively linear where a room generally has all the tools to unlock puzzles within that same vicinity, so you don't really have too much annoying back and forth. The bonus chapter isn't bad and has a somewhat lovecraftian ending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT GAME What can I say but that I LOVE this game.My review is based on the Collector's Edition.I enjoy games that are considered "dark" and that use real people in the storyline.If you like True Fear;Forsaken Souls and games such as Mystery Case Files:Dire Grove,and MCF 13th Skull then you are going to love Penumbra Motel.Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from CREEPY ADVENTURE This game was so much fun I did not want the end to come!!! I loved the fact that there were not 101 HOS as a matter of fact there were none. The game was not that difficult to figure out but not too easy either. I found myself chuckling out loud at some of the stuff that happens. I do not want to say too much cause I do not want to spoil it for anyone who has not played yet. You do need to scan the scenes and look for things you need to interact with, but it makes sense to use certain items for certain tasks. The live actors also make this game even better. The music is just okay kind of carnival like. I am so happy I purchased this game I will definately play again. Great job ERS keep more like this coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic!! Loved this game and the graphics are superb! It's the usual kidnap story but every game is unique and this is no exception. Great length of play and the bonus was a good hour of extra play. The only downside i feel is the missing HOS, just wasn't the same without the hidden object scenes and just constant running around looking for objects all the time but still enjoyable all the same. Please keep the HOS in the games as we love them!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally an adventure game with out hidden object Scenes I was o the verge of canceling my Big Fish membership because I simply could not take one more HOG with endless hidden object scenes. This is an adventure game that makes you think but yet is not difficult enough for you to need a Strategy Guide or walkthrough. The story line is interesting, the voice overs are very well done and the graphics are decent. There is some going back and forth but not overly so. The objects you collect are used, so you are not walking around with items in inventory that are of no use. This game is and SE so it's well worth the money. If you are tired of HOGs, I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is very good Yes, on Mother's Day I treated myself to this wonderful game. It reminds me of Mystery trackers, with real actors, pretty good storyline, but somewhat grainy graphics. It is kind of easy to keep track of things and inventory items, and having only played about 2 hours into the game I have not seen a HOS, which I kind of miss. There is a little trunk that constantly plays mini scenes on the bottom, from the war, and you have to find film reels which you can play there too. Also you need to collect medals, which also go in the trunk. I like this game a lot, it just flows and you don't have to go nuts over trying to figure out what to do next. I also like the ghost scenes, which can sneak up on you here and there and give you a few grey hairs, but there is a bottle for that..... I spent my 2 credits on this one and no regrets Keep it up BFG, very nice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Rush Wow this game is just awesome. This is something totally new for this developer and man did they ever deliver. It looks like a hidden object plays like a hidden object but it's not it's pure adventure no search scenes. You do however have to find stuff but not like usual no list this time. The graphics are really good the sound is good the game has that nice creepy feel to it that makes you wonder what's lurking around the corner. It is a deserted town and your passing through for gas and snacks and the little girl with you goes in the store to buy some snacks and never comes back and so it begins you have to find her but not only that you have to uncover the deep dark secrets of this town. There are real actors in this one and several different locations and lots to do with this one and the puzzles are really cool and the bonus content is really good it's full of goodies. It has everything you would expect from ERS all the fun and all the creepiness you want. I bought it right away and I think it's going to be a really long game and a total blast from start to finish. The graphics aren't the bright and colorful gorgeous eye popping graphics instead they are a little dark which fits perfect for this game and the time period the game is set in although they aren't the gorgeous eye popping graphics they are still awesome and just fit this game so well. I'm so glad I purchased this one it's one I wasn't dare going to let slide by. Give the demo a try it's worth that. Thank you ERS and Big Fish for this awesome new series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ers so I got it ERS games are great so I played for 30 min and got it for free. I would have bought it also. Great graphics and the sound is good. I love adventure games so this is up my alley. DO not care if there is no HOS. Looks like a good game to play. Try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't want this game to end! This is the first game I've played where there are absolutely no hidden object scenes, and I didn't miss them too much as the story was so engaging and there was so much to see. Although I do like HOGs, sometimes looking for the oil can, the hammer, the pen, the glasses, the binoculars etc. etc. can get a little repetitive, so this was something different. This game has live action characters in the cutscenes, and - shock horror! - for the most part the dialogue actually matches the actors' lip movements. I absolutely loved wandering around, every new room/area found was a joy to explore. Sparkles indicated that there was something to look at, either an item to be picked up, or a diary page to see, or a puzzle to solve. Many of the puzzles were of the "move things into the right slot" variety, which I'm not always terribly good at, so sometimes I took a sneaky look at the built-in Strategy Guide, which was helpful. Some of the puzzles were quite simple, others took a little more thought. The setting for the game is a ramshackle old hotel, with ramshackle streets and ramshackle rooms, but that's right up my street so I loved it. There were a good few skeletons, some animated, quite literally "hanging around" too. If I only had some minor gripes it would be these: #1# Given the nature of the story, I thought the music was, how can I put it, a little too "perky"? I think there would have been a far better atmosphere to the game if the music had been spookier. #2# The bonus content was really pretty short and didn't take long to complete at all. I don't go in for downloading the music, or having screensavers, or seeing the concept art, but that's just me - I have no use for things like that. The only reason I like CEs is because of the in-built strategy guide, to be honest. #3# I didn't really see the point of the film reels - OK, you saw real footage from the war, and later on some obviously staged footage added in, but there wasn't much explanation as to what that was about. It could have been explored/explained a good bit better. I did feel as though the game didn't explain things as well it could have done, and that it finished a little abruptly. If you're like me and don't feel the 'extras' justify the extra £££s, then I'd wait for the SE version. Don't let that put you off, however, because if - like me - you love exploring spooky streets and spooky houses, this is a game I think you'll definitely want to play one way or the other. On the whole, minor issues aside, I really, really loved it!
