    Another Well Done Midnight Mystery

    BASED ON COMPLETED GAME

    Don't get me wrong,this is one of the best HO games , but this is my least favourite of the Midnight Mysteries, which means it's only wonderful not superb. Smile

    Artwork: I preferred both the other MMs, but I can't pin down exactly why. There are a couple of moments of sheer brilliance though. Watch for the wolf and the hanging tree. Magic.

    Story: On solid ground here. A little involved at times, it intrigues and satisfies, with some interesting twists.

    Difficulty: Just about right for both HO and puzzles. A bit frustrating for me on the adventure side of things. I always miss picking up a item and end up totally unable to move forward. Still, probably not a problem for the more experienced players.

    Likes: Again, the wolf, LOVED the wolf. The way to combine items in a special box is great. Tracking what % of the game you've completed is helpful.

    Dislikes: I hate the way you have to be so precise with the cursor when using tools, sometimes I had to repeat the action several times to get it right. The map is worse than useless. Even though it was my second go in two weeks, I still managed to get lost. Walkthrough was necessary a few times, especially since the help feature can sometimes be less than helpful.

    Replayability: Excellent. I still found it a challenge, and the trophies and unlocked games add further incentive to try to beat yourself next time. I'll definitely be playing it again and again.

    I Recommend This Game!
