Bummer. Was SO looking forward to new MCF but won't play on my pc. Used up the trial trying to adjust anything in Options but nothing worked. Pretty much saw just the small golden hourglass. Going to check forum on bf and see if anyone else having probs. I had problem with last MCF(last of Ravenhurst series)in that while in a rainy area would barely run...but this one has no rain-lots of fog however..BUT not fog indoors and still when able to get to new area then the hourglass begins again and can't move.

I've only played 20 minutes so far, and I will finish the trial. As for the extras, there's nothing there that is enticing. I'm thinking this will be one MCF that I won't be buying as a CE.

The SG is not a true SG, it borders on useless.

Sorry to be a downer on this game, but it's just not of the MCF caliber we have come to know in my opinion.



I agree with you about the feel of these last 2 MCF games. The developers seemed to have gotten off track and have completely changed the format. I did enjoy Dire Grove and 13th Skull though. But I do really prefer the earlier games that were mostly HOG's I know that a lot of people here don't agree with that but this is just my personal preference. I am not wild about the Strategy Guide in this game but so far I haven't had a problem following it.

needing some help, please - asked at BFG forum but got no reply - liking the way the forum is linked right into the game

I can't find the school bus in the kids' room at the Warden's house - can you help me?

This is such a great game - lots of new and different things, but I'm frustrated when I can't find the bus and can't get help

Need to get outside now and have some fresh air - If the rain stops for a minute, I'll make a run for it

I played 30 min. of the game and didn't like it all. That's just me. I didn't like the hint button keep recharging even outside the HO. Even in the HOS you have to go to other rooms to find things. Lot of gamer might like the game.

I bought it sight unseen this morning because I know despite what I am reading, I have to judge for myself. It's interesting reading the pros and cons. I will play it in a couple weeks when I have time.

I'm loving the game so far; I've only played it for about 40 minutes or so, but I can already tell that I'm going to have a great time with it. I'm playing in hard mode and seeing how far along in the game I can get without looking at the strategy guide. That probably won't last long, but it's fun to try. smile

Excellent Marian. I have always enjoyed the creativeness of the BigFish developed games so I am thinking I will also enjoy it. yay

I think part of the problem with the negative comments are that you may be expecting the same as the others when in fact they have all changed from the original a little bit each time. I will approach it as something new and not expect it to be any specific way.

Hi, Marian!

I just checked the "Help" article and it says nothing about CEs released between now and when rhe sale ends being ineligible. It just states that you must have "MCF: Shadow Lake CE" and at least 1 more CE in your shopping cart for the coupon to work. If the sale only applies to CEs released prior to today, should that not be stated somewhere in the instructions?

Hi Susan, it could have been made more clear as to whether any CE released between now and when the sale ends is eligible, but a mod on the BF forum has confirmed that it will be. Trouble is, that would have meant holding off on buying the new MCF for a few days, and I don't have that kind of intestinal fortitude. lol The other CE that is supposed to be released before the sale ends is The Beast of Lycan Isle (developer is Silverback, who also brought us the Empress of the Deep games and Theater of the Absurd); we will see if it shows up. smile

Ana, I go into each MCF game thinking of it as a new experience rather than comparing it to others in the series; I agree with you that the developers try to offer something a bit different with each new release. It has certainly worked for me. wave

Hi, Marian!

I just finished the demo and enjoyed it; however, if "The Beast of Lycan Isle" is from the same developer as the "Empress of the Deep" series, I think I'll muster up all of my willpower and wait to see if it's released before Sunday. If not, there are two other CEs that I've been holding off buying, so I can pick them up.

That sounds like a very good plan, Susan. thumbsup

The sale will be good through November 25th, so if Lycan Isle is released on Sunday, you will be able to use the MCF code on it that day. smile

I am getting deeper into the game and I am liking it very much! A couple of scary moments there! No, it is not like the original MCF games but I have changed my mind about this one. It's delightfully different and interesting. Hey! Doesn't Cassandra look a lot like actress Lea Thompson? And the man who shot the convict ( the Warden?) looks like Jack Nicholson.
