The Gift is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gift is a gift I bought this a couple years ago and played it. It is a stand alone unique game. I loved it. I just played it again today and decided to write a short review. A detective story set in the past. The story moves along quickly. This game keeps you playing. The graphics are older but still good. I loved the voice acting. This is a great SE to buy during a sale or if it is offered up as a daily deal. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Help guide a psychic investigator catch a murderer! Y'all she is Sarah Mieville and she is "gittin" close to finding out who the mysterious Nothingman is. I loved this game, and I love Sarah's southern accent. Enjoy this occult paranormal adventure because there isn't a game in the line up like this one. Using her telepathy visions and wits she discovers unique and clever ways to solve bizarre murders of persons who also have "the gift". I don't recommend this for kids. This is a mature game with dialogue necessary for game play. Just loved it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it.....Even Her Voice I found this murder mystery refreshing with that twist of the occult. Meiville's voice intrigued me as it was a change from the professional British actor voice. We are brought into the reason for her reluctance to play the role of the paranormal detective and we see her as an "outsider." But at the same time she is driven which creates a good tension in the story.(no details) I skipped a few puzzles due to weak directions mostly. But overall I liked it even with its very few faults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GIFT OF A GAME This is a nice tight little Hidden Object/ Adventure game which is interesting and quirky. It has fairly good graphics and interesting locations. It has the usual items to find such as the key to open the door, find something to eat for the homeless person etc. and is also not too difficult for a beginner for example.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great game, you'll love it!! Just finished the game, and I'm still baffled by it. Fantastic story! But you'll have to see for yourself, I can't give it away, can I? Crisp graphics, great fifthies atmosphere, fantastic VO's, nice, clear HOS, slightly interactive. Certainly not the easiest of games, had to skip a couple of puzzles. One small warning though, there is no walkthrough (on BF). But try it and see for yourself. Happy gaming!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gift of a game!!! I see mixed reviews for this but I loved it! The storyline is interesting and drew me in and it is a good long game. I made it last 4 days because I didn't want to finish it as I was enjoying it so much!! The HOS scenes are clear and the hint button shows you which way to go should you need it. The puzzles made the game for me. OK, the instructions were pretty vague but it was pretty obvious what you had to do, it was just doing it. Some took me a while but I feel a great sense of achievement at managing them all. A game I will definitely play again :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Adventure Game - NOT Hidden Object Game Graphics are good, but not great. Storyline is very good, and so are the vocals. I personally liked all the cut scenes. Journal is good as well. No map, but in casual mode, none is needed. Hint points toward task, or in direction needed to travel. Music is repetitive, so I turned the volume down. Even though this game has hidden object scenes, it's really an intuitive adventure game- i.e. think on your feet: 1) I just got an object, but what is it for? Have I already been somewhere I could use it? 2) I just found a new task. What kind of object would work here? Are there any objects in my inventory that would work? If not, I'll need to be on the lookout for something else that would work. For expert Adventure gamers, this game might be too easy, but I really liked it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Journal! Fun Game! I had a great time playing this game. I chose to play the Expert mode and I am sure seasoned players of this type game would add more pleasure to their gaming by choosing this mode. The Journal was interesting and I went back before games end and reread. The hidden object scenes were easy making them fast to clear so one could return to using the given inventory item. Puzzles were about my speed not so difficult that they caused me to hit the Skip button. The concept art to final graphic's was very good. Thanks to the entire team -- you did good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE GIFT - GREAT GAME!!! This game truly was a gift to me. Review based on full game play. You are Sarah, a young woman with paranormal abilities. Animation/VOS - Good - More to me like avatars. IHOS - Clear, some small objects. Could have done without the "ahhh" each time an item was found. :-D Be sure to scan areas outside of IHOS. Misclick Penalty - Screen resembles a tv set losing focus for a second. Hint - Quick recharge, gives clues and acts as a guide. Inventory - Items used quickly in various locations. While hint is recharging, if you click on it, a female voice whispers something but I couldn't understand what she was saying. Puzzles/Mini-Games - Not as many as some players would like but challenging all the same. Seems to be more IHOS. For those of you who enjoy the paranormal, then this is the game for you. Buy and enjoy!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Check it out - Well done 40's noir flavored crime... with a twist. Wow, this gem of a game by a primo developer slid past as a soft release that i missed, & boy, am i glad i finally heard about it! Had a blast playing this noir detective style game set in the 40's. You're playing as a Sarah Meiville, former police detective who's now working as a PI, or more to the point, an occult investigator with the gift of seeing people's memories. I don't want to give much away, but this is a very cool storyline, and the atmosphere created for it is wonderful. Graphics/artwork is great & i was enthralled by the stunning use of color in the darker areas - a perfectly moody stage for a detective drama. Music is repetitive but didn't bug me, as it was really appropriate for the mood. There are 2 levels of play & you have the option to have sparkles or not at either level. There's a journal that loads up with info as you go, no map, & a hint button that only points you in a direction. Puzzles give little to no instruction, so you're gonna have to figure what to do as well as complete them, & you can skip if you get frustrated. Also, no walkthru available anywhere that i found. So you're pretty much on your own in this game, Detective, & i think you'll find some challenge here, with nothing to fall back on but your little gray cells. This HOPA will provide you with smooth gaming, lots to do, HOscenes with a bit of interaction, great characters, & decent length of play. I was thoroughly engrossed in this one, played straight through. & am now ready for a sequel (please. I think this would make a great series). If you like crime/detective/mystery or dark & eerie games, i think it's worth your while to check this one out. Give it a go, & have fun gaming, folks.
