I took a pass on last years game too. I hope this one is better! I loved the old ones like Dire Grove and the early ones.

I don't want them to revert to the format of the earlier games where hidden objects were the emphasis. Last year's game was like that. The Mystery Case Files have evolved over the years with great stories, fun game play, interesting puzzles, etc. They spoiled us with Ravenhurst. Hopefully this game will be a reversion to the more recent games.

I believe you are referring to Mystery Case Files: Rewind, which was released earlier this year and had an emphasis on hidden objects. I don't know if they plan anything else like that or not, but today's MCF release is definitely a HOPA.

Hi, Marian!

I'm going to play the demo later on today. So as not to clutter up the board with another post, I want to add that I bought and played "MCF: Rewind" earlier this year and enjoyed it for what it was ... a throwback to the original games. It was a novelty but not one that I'd like to see repeated lol .

I'm thinking that Mystery Case Files: Rewind was probably a one-off in terms of MCF games, but I don't know that for sure. I feel similarly to the way you do - I enjoyed it for what it was, but I don't require a series of them. smile

Thanks Marian. Lots of posts here already. Can't wait to hear what people think of the game. I'm still quite far behind on my MCF gaming. I haven't played the last 4 yet.

Well there you go. I have no sense of time anymore. The days, weeks, months and now years just seem to blend into one mass of time. lol

Hi, Marin!

I played a bit of the demo last night and enjoyed it. Since I haven't finished the game I'm currently playing, I'll wait until Saturday to see if BF has a good sale. If not, I'll use 2 Game Club Credits to pick it up.

I seem to remember Big Fish having a good Thanksgiving sale last year, so let's hope it's the same for this year. smile

Agreed, Draclvr. Dire Grove set a high bar to meet. I did like Black Veil and the three Ravenhursts (Unlocked, Key and Return), but otherwise, they have been disappointing. Still, I'll check out Countess as a Demo and decide then.

I'm looking forward to opinions on the game! I am avoiding spending the money till I hear it's worth it. I am not a club member for a long time.
