  A GREAT GAME WITH A FEW FLAWS

| | See all dave00's reviews (22)

ive decided to take a star off for one very good reason!
the voice acting for the main character is terrible i.e like reading from a cue card) ive only come across worse acting in belief and betrayals main protagonist.
apart from that it was a real pleasure to play, with nice puzzles that wont make u pull your hair out over,
fine art backdrops
a nice original story and original concept of ghost hunting using TAPS tv series style tools which is awasom. so yes buy the game : ) im jemima im jemima

  Amazing

| | See all BobbieW92's reviews (2)

This game is amazing, i bought it after reading the good reviews and i agree with all of them. It's quite tricky in parts and they take a while to do, so i had to use the walkthrough once or twice, but a very spooky and entertaining game

  The lost Crown was amazing

I have a broken leg and i have been stuck in bed. I decided to get this out and play it. I was hiding behind covers and lost for the most part of the game. I had to cheat a bit but i got throught it and now i want more from these characters. Yo, creator please send more.
The ghost where scary, and you never knew what was going to happen next. I loved the crypt. When i saw it it took me a few hours just get nerve to go down there.
I play loads of ghost games and fatal frame or project zero. This is one ranks u p there with those. Try it you may like it.

  Another Excellent Story

| | See all jennamaxon's reviews (1)

I really like the games produced by this publisher - interesting, detailed, atmospheric, complex stories. Just goes to show what you really need for game production is imagination, creativity and commitment and not necessarily high end graphics and fancy animation. The only down side is I think the game are a little overpriced for the degree of replayability the games offer (which is limited) but still Great Fun and I'm too scared to go into the crypt.

I've gotta be honest when i first picked this up i was ready to dismiss it based on an unknown publisher to me and what looked like dated graphics for this day and age. Thank god i took a punt on it, the aforementioned graphics are a bit wooden as is the voice acting but you must, repeat MUST look through this as the story is fantastic and brilliantly presented to you, the gamer. After an hour you forhet about the graphics completely as you just want to find out whats going on, how did Danver's get here, are there really ghosts etc....

You absolutely must play it in a dark room with the lights off and curtains shut, whack up the volume and just let yourself ease into the story, I promise you won't be disappointed.

  Utterly Fantastic!

| | See all SleepyHead246's reviews (3)

Ive been playing this game for a couple of months, so its pretty long, but to be fair i play it for a couple of hours every now and then. However it is just such a good game, if you love ghost hunting games and point and click games this is just a bonus! Ive sat playing this in the dark and ive had to turn the lights on because ive got that spooked by this game. Theres so much to unravel and its such a great mystery. I really recommend it to anyone! Great Game!

Excellent game. Johnathan Boakes has produced another memorable PC game . As its creator he has meticulously planned out a great story line apparently covering multi time zones. it combines logical puzzle solving with some great spooky moment definately a game to play alone on the dark with headphones on to get an even better effect. Quite scaryy in the churches . The attention to detail is superb. I recommend that every booklet and pamlet found in the game is examined as they have subtle links to other other adventure games. .e.g. I enjoyed the varied menu in the lighthouse cafe.and the application of the ghosthunting equipment.

  refreshingly different and well worth the money

| | See all tinywoman's reviews (16)

bought this game on a whim as i love the whole RPG genre like Monkey Island and Broken Sword. At first I thought what a pile of rubbish mainly down to the characters voices and rigid movements of the lead character but when you look past and get involved in the game it's absolutely brilliant! the graphics style of mixing real photography and computer generated elements is really refreshing to see, and the game is very atmospheric and on occasions makes you jump and too scared to carry on with it, but that's just me being a baby. This game is definitely more for the fans of monkey island and broken sword game fans and if you can look past the actors voices and some of the characters movements then your in for a real treat. :)

  excellent

| | See all dibber23's reviews (1)

It is annoying when people give low ratings for home grown games that may be slightly flawed, but are original and definately atmospheric and entertaining. Perhaps they should stick to 35 quid games with 3d graphics,loads of guns and bangs that last 3 hours so they can go bye byes at 8 oclock.
This game is excellent ,spooky entertainment.A great story line that blends characters from over several centuries into a 1950s setting.Yes the vocals are wooden and the puzzles on the easy side, but who wants to pratt about for hours getting nowhere and then resort to looking up hints.One of the best p&c ive played in a while and ive played a few. The way it ended we will hopefully get a sequel.
