  1. Players will feel a real sense of accomplishment upon completing each one. However, there isn’t anything else to do in this game, and once the puzzles are solved, there is no going back and replaying.

    It's a good thing Safecracker has a number of entertaining puzzles, because it has little else.
  3. As long as you're not too hung up on variety and plot, these breaking-and-entering brainteasers will delight puzzle fans.
  4. So that's basically it. If you enjoy your puzzle games and like to work your brain on challenges ranging from simple to break-the-desk frustrating, then Safecracker might just be for you.
  5. Apart from the odd frustrating puzzle, there's nothing much at fault here, aside from the fact that what you're buying is a small collection of puzzles and nothing more. As long as you realise that's all Safecracker is - and there's no adventure element to speak of - then you won't be disappointed.

Not terribly difficult, I beat it in 3-4 hours. Beautiful, creative environments, generally bland puzzles involving letters, numbers, or combinations therein. Safecracker is an accurate title. Puzzles almost as exciting as an IQ test. Full Review »

I'm not usually into puzzle games, for example Myst, but I was determined to beat this one despite the rather 'easy' approach the developers took to a storyline. All in all, this game was fun while it lasted. I wish I could have had a bigger payoff for all of my safecracking at the end, but it was still worth the satisfaction I got after completing each puzzle. Full Review »
