A Good Game but.....

I had so much trouble with the HOPS! When you had to place something in the scene, it wouldn't take it! I had to try and try and try before I got it! It was the same when I had to pick something up out of a HOP. I really liked the storyline, as I always do with this series. Some of the puzzles were lacking in instructions also. If you could straighten these problems out, it would be a 5 star game.

What the heck?!!

Let's talk about the positive before I mention what I think is wrong with this game. Game itself is cool, right up there with Edgar Allen Poe writings. Kudos for graphics, spookiness, storyline was good too but ..
Talk about difficult, sheesh this game takes the cake and then some!
.. maybe I'm wrong about this but the camera is new to me. It took a lot of tries to figure out to wait for a "green frame" to show up just to take a darn picture! A hint would have been nice. Further into the game, just to do the easiest tasks became the most frustrating. What I mean is the story telling of where you find items that go along with the story, then maybe get an item or a clue at the end to help with the dialogue. It's not like you were putting the rods on the bird cage one at a time, it shouldn't matter where the dang rods need to be placed.
Normally I love these games but this one was either a rushed job, the makers just wanted to get it out or they didn't care. Thank god I read the reviews before buying. Poorly done. If this is the kind of games that Big fish wants to be associated or carry it's name then you're going to lose your customers.

Got through it!

First the negative: Very poor instructions, Very unresponsive - multiple tapping needed with Very sensitive placement of items. This was more than frustrating! However, due to no crashes during the trial, I had purchased it. This has taken a lot of patience & persistence.
On the positive side, the graphics were crisp & clear, character voice overs were good, actually there were a lot of unique aspects and tasks to perform ( just a shame that the developers did not lay out the aspect of the game & instructions.) Lots of running around, however teleporting map was provided -Thank Goodness! Storyline I felt was interesting enough to try and get through it. Longer than expected, due to all of the bugs and unresponsiveness. As a result I can only give this a 2 star rating - as it has been a real pain to get through.
