The offer is good until 11/25, so does it seem more sensible to buy the game on Sunday just in case there are more CEs available from today to Sunday or am I not understanding the offer? It wouldn't surprise me not to understand, not understanding is my best thing.

Can't wait to get playing this one! I bought it without playing the demo .This was a nice surprise as the game wasn't supposed to be released until the 22nd.

Fil, another CE was announced yesterday for release this week, entitled The Beast of Lycan Isle. I would think that it would be included in this MCF sale if you were to buy this game after it shows up (presumably this weekend), but I cannot say for sure.

I also bought Shadow Lake without even trying the demo - thankfully, the game runs well. Can't wait to start playing. thumbsup wave

Thanks Marian, I believe I'll wait a few days and see what's what.

Fil, a moderator on the Big Fish forum has confirmed that the MCF coupon code will work for a CE released between now and when the sale ends. wave

Yippy skippy! rah penguin

I'm a fan of the "Ghost Hunters" TV show, so I loved the beginning of this one. How nice to have the opportunity to buy this before Thanksgiving. And the special offer on other CE's makes it a no-brainer. Just played a few mins. of demo and can see that the game will be packed with challenges.

When I joined Big Fish I bought a superpack. One of the first games was a MCF game. I followed this series and enjoyed every one, Dire Grove being my favorite.

This present game does not have a MCF feel about it, it doesn't even have a BFG feel about it. It's like they farmed it out to another developer.

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.

Thanks Ana! Yay! Bought it without trying demo and have been playing it all morning. Other games got put on back burner until I'm finished with this one. lol
Love it! Great game so far! thumbsup
Also bought the Dana Knightstone novel CE on sale with it for $6.99.

Your opinion is valued, Flo. I can't comment on the game yet because I won't be starting it for a few hours. I will be very interested to hear what everyone has to say about the game, whether it be good or bad. wave

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 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?
