  1. Dark Fall: Lost Souls proves that the point-and-click genre hasn’t met his demise yet. Thankfully passionate individuals like Jonathan Boakes create games like this in their spare time. Lost Souls may not be of the same high quality as the other two entries in the series, but it still is a must-have for people with a weak for a good horror story and old fashioned point-and-click games.

    This is a flawed game, but it's getting better. [Feb 2010, p.95]
  3. It is sad to see so many good ideas killed by their implementation.

    Dark Fall: Lost Souls is aimed squarely at the Myst crowd: if you like taking your time pondering over clues, taking meticulous notes and solving some brain-bending puzzles, then you’ll render a considerable degree of enjoyment from the game. If not, then its tension and suspense will be lost on you thanks to the snail’s pace it takes and the distinct lack of anything remotely exciting happening.

    Make no mistake, this is a puzzle solving type gaming. Type of game i'm not good at and regret buying for myself. Sound effects is the bestMake no mistake, this is a puzzle solving type gaming. Type of game i'm not good at and regret buying for myself. Sound effects is the best feature about the game and the voice acting is okay. Story seemed interesting just couldn't get myself to finish it. Full Review »

    The game tries to hard to be frightening, and the result is quit tedious.. Full of horror cliches and a really bad voice acting.
