The Lost Crown: A Ghosthunting Adventure

 

Sometimes you need more cooks in the kitchen

A lot of good ideas ; More logical puzzles ; Cool background art

So freaking slow ; Cruddy, agonizing voice acting ; Too much reading

Using black and white photography for location backgrounds is smart, and the animation gets away with a lot by being similarly monotonous. It’s a really good idea. It doesn’t, however, disguise the ridiculous glide-walking. There are huge amounts of...

Lost Crown: A Ghost-hunting Adventure, The

 

The Lost Crown: A Ghost-Hunting Adventure is the latest work from independent developer Jonathan Boakes, who previously brought us the haunting Dark Fall series. A spiritual successor in some ways and a notable departure in others, The Lost Crown...

Art design is amazing; sound effects, music, and ghostly voices are terrific; a large variety of unique puzzles

Terrible voice acting; extremely repetitive dialogue; mostly empty environments; ending doesn’t resolve many of the plot points

The Lost Crown is beautiful to look at and good for a few scares. If you have the patience to get past its many rough edges, you’ll find a thoroughly playable adventure underneath.

The Lost Crown: A Ghost-Hunting Adventure

 

This is probably one of the most difficult reviews I've had to write. All reviews seem to come with their own difficulties, as you have to omit putting certain key points to paper as they could (and most likely would) contain possible spoilers. What...

Consumer review by:

One of the games which will hopefully change the industry.

 

When I first read about Europa Universalis II back in December 2001, I thought there was no way that it could be as good as some of the reviewers were claiming. How could a game simulate the events of 400 years and do it well?

Great historical entertainment, very deep, high replay value, easy modification, multiple ways to play

May put off those who are used to RTS or action games. Some Bugs

Much More than an Update

 

Huge scope, easy to edit, intuitive interface, any music you want, unlimited possibilities

Occasional crashes, steep learning curve

Strategy First came onto the gaming scene a few years ago with a few really bad titles. Ever since then, its games have been improving, and sometimes actually contained a few original concepts. The company became the fastest growing publisher of...

This is only a patch of the previous game

Consumer review by:

Steep learning curve, but worth the effort

 

Europa Universalis covers the period from 1492-1792, in the format of Real-Time Strategy (RTS). You take the helm of a major European nation and compete with your rivals for trading rights, provinces, and conquests in the unexplored world.

A real challenge Fantastic detail in politics,economics, production, military. Replay potential very high

Still buggy (ver 1.09 patched) Have to surrender to exit. Long loading time

Western Civ 101

 

There are few computer games that allow players to guide countries from the 1492 through to the French Revolution. While Imperialism II, released several years back, captured the colonization / domination aspect, merging it with a strong economic...

Excellent diplomatic and economic model

Dense Manual (120 pages) that is difficult to read, audio is rather sparse

Consumer review by:

Rule the World in Real Time

 

First-Off this game is not for everybody. If you are looking for the next Real Time, Mission Based, Quick Clicking Game, then stay away. If you are looking for a political, commercial, and military simulation of the world around 1492, then purchase...

Historically Accurate! Real Time

Long and Terrible Manual! Some Bugs

Product Specifications

Nigel Danvers is on the run! Two shadowy agents are on his tail, pursuing him across London to the grand train station at Liverpool Street. Nigel suspects that afternoon's activities may be to blame. Travel with Nigel Danvers to an eerie seaside town on England's east coast. Learn to use advanced techniques used by real paranormal investigators, and uncover an ancient mystery and treasure. But, beware, not all of the towns residents will help in your mission, whether they are alive or dead. Inspiration from the haunting works of Charles Dickens, M.R. James, Arthur Conan Doyle, and E.F. Benson combines with real ghost-hunting gadgets to bring this frightening story to bone-chilling life. Success or failure in locating wandering spirits depends on your skill as an investigator. Placing motion detectors, night vision cameras, and temperature gauges correctly will reveal a location's haunted past, and expose terrifying apparitions. With nerves of steel, and wits to match, you will soon discover long lost secrets, previously known only to the dead!
