i browse around a lot but only post here, least so far thumbsup
i read a thread for anacapri the dream on the 4 fat chick forum and a very long one on just adventures.

they say you really need a excellent walkthuogh to play unless you have very much time.
the only walkthuogh i find on the net is the one on gameboomer by mag so they must mean that one so it must be marvellous bravo

what do you others think?

LindaMarion,
I was so fortunate to be the winner of the give away of this game. I really enjoyed the wonderful and beautiful actual photos of the city and the countryside. I enjoyed the story, which was a little hokey but it was fun talking to "real people". I got stuck a few times, but the walkthrough was great from MaG. Just make sure you check that you did ALL the steps and not skip anything if you are stuck. I started all over halfway through thinking the game was corrupted, but it was just one little step I didn't see the first time around. I loved it and the first one cause I really loved the real photos. I am working through the Carol Reed series and it has real photos and people too from their city. I enjoy these kind of games.

I agree the photography was wonderful ( as are the Carol Reed games) but I just could not get into this one. Just too much walking around thinking what to do next think
Thank heavens we are not all alike as life would be very boring. lol

I absolutely loved this game. The photography was stunning, it was a pleasure in itself just to walk around and explore. (There is an added feature of a guided tour, which is quite separate from the game itself.)

I thought the storyline was interesting, and the puzzles fun to solve, too. Some of the challenges were difficult, but the game has a bypass feature for a few of the harder puzzles. It's good to take notes while playing! grin

I would definitely recommend this game.

I bought the game because I enjoyed playing A Quiet Weekend. Don't know what happened between Weekend and Anicapri, but....
While the scenery is beautiful, there's waaay too much walking. Some of the conversations are okay, but most are inane to the point where I muted. And excessively long. Not to mention the Greek? statue with the Brooklyn accent? I found the game boring and only finished it because of the money I'd spent on it. Unlike most of my other games, I won't replay it.

I think it is magnificient! Yes, I agree about some of the voice actors but that does not lessen the interesting storyline or engrossing puzzles. As for the walking, I guess it depends on how much you enjoy looking at the beautiful surroundings as you mosey along. I wasn't in any rush to get through this game and thorougly enjoyed it.

It's the gaming equivalent of Marmite.

That's me! smile And you are right. I felt it was ambitious but not very successful. The core story (the love triangle) was too thin to support a 50 hour game. The other stories (the history and the quest for the obsidian disk) felt like filler. Or perhaps I should say Adventure Game Helper. wink

And all the clicking down all the dusty paths, streets, caves and stairways got very old.

That said, I couldn't be happier for all those who enjoyed it.
