So, I rarely spend $ on a game unless I KNOW I'll get my money's worth, or, if I get to play a TON of levels for free. If I play free for many levels, I don't have a problem with supporting the creators. Until now, I have NEVER spent money up front, hoping the game will be worth it. After trying, then buying, several hidden object mystery games by Big Fish, I now just pay for the full version right away. THEY ARE THAT GREAT! My ONLY wish is that they put out more games without an occult/magic/cursed theme.

I wanted to like this game, especially since I'm a native Bostonian. But, I've tried it twice now, and found it very disappointing. You go to a scene, find one thing, then have to move to a new location. And, since there's NO logic to most of the moves. You need to keep referring to the map. Example: the water in the hallway (it's a foyer, not a hallway, BTW) is dirty (beyond foolish, who has a bowl of dirty water in their foyer?), you go to another scene, several moves later, and find a cleaner, move further on to find a wounded man, and a dirty bandage (doesn't everyone have a dirty bandage hanging around?), so you need to go to the dirty water, add the cleaner, wash the bandage, go back to the wounded man and apply the bandage! Sorry, but that's just too stupid. This game COULD be good, but it's not. Even the HO scenes have oddities, like needing a scalpel to open the model of an eye to locate something totally unrelated. I'll pass. This game needs SOME logic to it. Seemed to have been developed by right rained people only. Booooo!

Finally a great mystery game without all the horror, occult, scary garbage, just a real mystery game! Great story line, graphics, seek and find and puzzles to keep you thinking! No extra money to buy more lives, or anything else. It keeps you on your toes. Yes, there is a lot of back and forth but a little of that is better than a lot of other junk you have to deal with in other games. Really fun and well worth the money, which is extremely hard in these games!
