I decided to give the trial version a try, to see if it was worth the $19.99 I'd have to pay for the full version.

The only reason I would buy the game would be to find out what's going on in the town. What the horn is, and why it has such an affect on people.

For the hour I got to play the game, the only acting that was worth writing home about was the ghost hunter group. The medium's performance is way to cheesy for my taste.

While I do play HOs I'm not fond of the type in this, or any other, game. It's harder for me to pick out things from photo type images than those with actual 3D models.

What puzzles I did encounter in that hour were OK, I guess. The one needing to be solved in order to see the medium was just a matter of finding the correct information. Getting into the records room was just trial and error, and observing.

As to the graphics I saw within that hour, eh, I've seen better. But they aren't intolerable.

As to what's going on, that would, as I said, be the reason I'd buy the game. But since other things have to be taken care of first, it may be some time before I do buy the game.

I'm stuck too. I'm doing the HO for the school room and can't' find the" heart". When I ask for a hint it says I should find the objects Cassandra wants. The SG is not helping, I don't see a heart highlighted anywhere.

Rosaboobie you need to place the drawings over their corresponding scenes. Yes, it highlights when you click it in the right place. Hope this helps

Thracia the heart drove me crazy I don't know how to hide the answer and you might not need help anymore but if you do want me to tell you where it is, let me know and I will attempt to figure out how to hide the answer or I can message you. LOL

An update has been released for this game:

Quote:
We just received a new PC version of Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake Collector's Edition that addresses the following:

o Vignette locks won’t reset if changing profiles during HO scenes

o Church door puzzle won’t crash when closing

o Credits and typos fixed

o Fixes to prison records room door lock and final puzzle Drag-And-Drop issues


I haven't experienced any issues with the game as yet but will probably update just to be on the safe side. wave

Sly One, I finally found the heart after looking on the BF forums. Someone else had the same issue, Marian answered the question. Thank you for the offer of help. The funny thing is once I knew where to look for it, it was clear as day. Not sure why I didn't" see it before. Thanks anyway.

You are welcome. I'm glad that you found it. I had such a difficult time finding it myself and said the same thing when I finally found it. LOL

wave Hi, Just finished the game and found out there's more to it. I didn't know there was a Grimes Quarry but found it when I was looking for more. Now, I'm hunting morphed objects.
I enjoyed the game very much. It's not like the other Mystery Case file games. You will either love it or hate it. thumbsup
