Hi, Marian!

I was actually shocked by the low rating that "MCF: Shadow Lake" received on BFG, because that series seems to have a cult following, but I did enjoy the demo so bought it anyway.

I was pretty shocked by the low reviews too. I do think you will enjoy the game, Susan - I think the MCF series is open to harsher criticism because folks have such high and varied expectations for each game. I thought it was a fun game and I will play it again in a few months. wave

Hi, Marian!

You and I seem to enjoy the same games so, if you enjoyed "MCF: Shadow Lake", I probably will as well. I picked up 2 other CEs in the sale, so I'll have to flip a coin to see which one I'm gonna play first lol !

Not sure about this one. Just doesn't seem as well done as other Silverback games. May wait for the standard version to be released.

I like what I played of the game, but I think it would have benefited from an intermediate level of difficulty; the casual mode seemed too easy and the hard mode seemed too difficult. I will probably pick it up during a CE sale. wave

Hi, Marian!

You touched upon one of the things I really didn't like about the game ()besides not being able to random click). I always play in casual mode because I like to relax while playing and sometimes take advantage of the "Skip" option for puzzles. The casual mode of "Beast" just doesn't take you by the hand. It hits you over the head with a sledgehammer lol ! I may use one of my coupons to pick up the SE when it's released, but I took a pass on the CE.

Agree with Marian and Susan. I usually play in Expert mode if it allows for skipping puzzles. But in this game, the Expert mode is just too hard to navigate.

P.S. Also, did not have a custom cursor in the demo. Anyone else notice this?

I didn't notice the lack of a custom cursor, but some folks on the BF forum mentioned this. wave
