    I liked this game. There was always something new to see, a fun puzzle to solve or another comment from the A.I. to mull over. I never felt frustration or the need to “get it over with.” I want more.

    You won’t find horror that creeps under your skin here, like you would in "Fatal Frame 2" or "Kuon" for example, but you will find a game with great and spooky atmosphere and a disturbing story.

    A tightly integrated game, well thought out and brilliantly executed. An unbelievable effort for a single individual.

    The music and voice acting are superb. I really liked Qara’s and Neeka’s voices. The performance was with a ton of attitude and personality.

    With the exception of my two gripes; this offering is, in this reviewer’s humble opinion, on a par with the big games produced by Lucas Arts, Access, the “old” Sierra, and more recently, Microids.

    Undoubtedly one of the "must play" adventure games. There is simply no other game quite like it. The 2004 release is not a new game and not even a remake, however the significantly improved technical quality and wealth of additional material, combined with an attractive price, will make the new Bad Mojo appealing even to existing owners of the 1996 version.

    It has been so long since we have had a comic adventure game that I think it is a relief to just have some fun and enjoy some ridiculous puzzles (and, might I add, puzzles that are purposely meant to be ridiculous).

    I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery, the puzzles, and the graphics, and felt right at home with much of it. In the same spirit that caused me to love Black Mirror despite its laughable flaws, I’m going to have to give Nibiru an A-.

    An entry in the series that long-time fans will love. Despite its serious lack of background music, the game delivers strong in so many ways that you will look over any of the weak puzzles and enjoy another outing with Nancy, the Hardys, and the usual collection of goofy and humorous characters (even a recurring character from a previous mystery!), accompanied by dialogue that’s more crisp and witty than it has been in a while.

    The game reminded me of a graphic animated adventure, had arena-style, turn-based combat, and an interesting exploration system.

    Most of this game flowed flawlessly, but there was one sticking point I have to mention: the load time between scenes was agonizingly slow.

    Although I relished my time in Fable 2 -- really, I did -- the half-baked marriage crap nearly killed the game for me.

    There is nothing in this game that you can point to and say that it was a breakthrough, but it is all consistent and consistently good. It is thoroughly enjoyable and doesn’t turn south on you half way through.

    I don’t want to oversell this low-budget PS2 action/adventure. However, it does have a lot going for it: putting the player in a dangerous yet unusually real situation, meaningful story choices, and lots of replay value. You might be surprised how much you end up enjoying Raw Danger.

    Not a perfect game. It suffers from patchy controls, dull and unremarkable locales and an ending that is a bit of a let down. But it also has some gorgeous 3D graphics, top notch voiceovers, music and dialogue, and an ultimately engrossing storyline which is well paced and will keep your interest piqued.

    If you have read the book, you should still enjoy the game and appreciate both the faithfulness to its source material and the liberties taken with the material. If the game is your first exposure to MOTOE, then it is most likely inevitable that you will then want to read the book.

    Situation: Comedy is a very good second episode in the new episodic adventure gaming genre. While the two hour play time is very pricey, the quality is good.

    This game is throughly enjoyable and most adventurers, new and old, will savor the experience of meeting these new characters in what promises to be a quality series.

    Cyan Worlds have brought two innovations to this game. One is the changeable world already mentioned. The other is an on-line multi-player game which actually changes with time. Put that all together and I must award an "A-" for the effort.

    So we have a very atmospheric game with good storyline and puzzles. And it is retailing for only US$10. If you don't mind the dark story elements, then this game deserves a place on your shelf.

    Honestly, if you played it and were rubbed the wrong way by the glitches, apply the patch and give it another shot. Mona may be only a campy vampire, but her heart, and the game's, are in the right place.

    Most importantly, though, is that the game is fun. It keeps you thinking, throws you a good number of curves, and for the most part is challenging but fair.

    If you’re looking for light entertainment and solid gameplay, Legend of the Crystal Skull is worth your dollar.

    The developers put a lot of effort into the player experience and took a few risks trying to break the mold along the way.

    Rhem 3 is a perfect sequel to Rhem and Rhem 2. The quality and gameplay from game to game is seamless. If you liked the previous games, then you will like this one.

    Still Life 2, despite its many faults, draws you in, puts you through the ringer and then spits you out like a wad of used gum at the end. I can't say it's a great game -- too flawed and at times annoying for that -- but it does deliver the goods.

    Overall, this is a pleasant and mostly simple game that is nevertheless entertaining and clever. The hunt-and-find part does get repetitive, as it is wont to do, but the mini-games and the storyline keep things interesting.

    Ultimately, I had fun playing detective for a day and trying to keep up with all the surprising developments that the case had to offer. It’s not without minor flaws, but it’s certainly a fun diversion that any mystery enthusiast – woman or not! – will enjoy. This is a series that deserves to continue and gain as loyal a legion of fans as Patterson himself already has.

    Like its two predecessors, Muzzled! is an exemplary offering.
