Worst game ever - no adventure or puzzles

We started this game thinking there was something interesting like puzzles or relevant game play involved. Well, there is not… do not play this game it is a massive waste of time (we were a family of 6 and very experienced in playing Nancy Drew games). This game has neither an interesting story (come home and sister is gone due to a boring love story) nor is there anything good to see or find in this game (you can turn cups around - the 3D engine is the only interesting part in this game). Imagine walking through the house of your average boring neighbor… now remove all the possible interesting parts - there you go this is gone home.

Time Played: 1-2 hours

Felt too small and linear

Given the reviews, I was expecting much more from this game. By the end, it felt more like a series of tasks I needed to complete to finish the game than fun. I found the story rather predictable and stereotypical and the world too small and annoyingly maze-like. The tapes were incredibly annoying and the voice-overs felt like cheating. The story should have been revealed purely by things discovered in the house, not voice-overs. And they seemed to have too much of the same items in each room and you couldn’t use them together or… I couldn’t find a game system to play the SNES games or anything to do with all the VHS tapes. I didn’t find it to feel like a real world or to be an engaging story.

Time Played: 2-5 hours
