Three reasons to buy this game:

* Challenging puzzles for people who enjoy frustration.
* A decent and interesting horror story.
* It's a very valuable piece of gaming history.

Three reasons NOT to buy this game:

* Cheesy cutscenes (but for some of us who like to laugh, it's a GREAT reason).
* Won't appeal to people who love HD games.
* The engine is outdated. Some people will have to fiddle with the game to get it running.

Now... for the review:

I have to admit that, like most people who played this game when it came out, I have fond memories of it: I used to play it with my family, in the weekends, when we usually took turns to solve the puzzles or to try to beat Stauf in Honey & Blood or the Rat Maze.

It's kind of sad, but I haven't played like that with my family and friends in a while. It seems like games rarely have that balance anymore. Most games nowadays are divided in two: A single player paradise with a flexible difficulty (so the player doesn't lose its appendix because of the frustration) or a multiplayer gore fest where rarely you understand what's happening anymore. Yeah, like most gamers, I also enjoy those kind of games, I know it's the evolution of gaming. However 11th Hour (and the 7th Guest) was a game which could be enjoyed with other people in a single gameplay and somehow, it seems it was meant to be played with the advice and skills of other people or it could be a very frustrating game.

You had to ask for help before the internet spoiled everything.

But time has passed and I know this game will barely catch the attention of new and young players. It's a shame. It deserves an opportunity, at least as a piece of history. The game has an interesting story but cheesy and low-res movies require some faith and imagination from the player; a suspension of desbelief and a willingness to enjoy what's happening or what's about to happen, regardless of the acting, or the 90s modelling and rendering. In my latest gameplay, although I knew most of the story, I could feel some scary or tense moments. The music is amazing, a true accomplishments (some puzzles are so difficult, that you could be listening the same tune for hours and you will hardly feel tired from hearing it).

Henry Stauf is a great character. It could be an icon like other popular videogame mascots.

A classic!
Although people still says that this is a downfall from The 7th Guest, it is defenetly a must-have for fans of the genre.
Can't wait for the 7th Guest 3!

This game is an all time classic, like the 7th guest
for comparison only Myst or Riven

Lets face the facts that these Games are not aged well- indeed this is a thing i´ve heard many times
from the (new) Gamer Generation if there is one acutaly.
1 off if you comapare those games Myst Riven and 7th guest and 11th hour wich came out
way before the CD rom or DVD Blu Ray standarts- these were the first games wich
gave the gamers the feeling he is acutaly part of that games.
I would say myst made the job a bit better but thats not the point.
So after ive finished the 7th guest in my nostalgic phase (now in 2014)
i can easily say- this game sucks because of the bad video standart of those days.
But no i dont say that because its not the main reason to play those games.
The riddles are fantastic they are harder than other games yes.
If i compare Myst with Riven than there is pretty the same increase of difficulty between
those games.
Take Riven wich frustated many gamers those days-
So yes the 11th hour and 7th guest are for hardcore gamers
whom take the challenge of these increased riddles.
You get a real fine story even the 7th guest made a better job.
If you think it has to be a HD Remake with newer days standarts your
terrible wrong and its your own fault if you bought a game you espected
its a new one.
The only problem i see is that it runs to fast on my machines.
I mean the cutscenes the ingame graphics etc.
But thats all.
If you didnt played the 7th guest and bought 11th hour and think
about that stauff cant shut its mouth? He did this in 7th guest too
and no one had a problem with that.
Its his house its his riddles its his horror world your into in those games
and its called sarcasm all the way.
If you think this games are easy and disturbing horror genre games are not your thing
dont buy it.
This game is a milestone of its genre
and still challenging today there are not many games
wich made this.
Yes technics of today made this game bad.
But as i said before high end graphics arent the
things that makes a game great.
Poor that the Collector never made it to the release
and that the remake of the collector didnt made it.
If you would do remakes of all those games with
all its details im shure there would be a nicer
resonance. But fans of the genre would buy it anyway.

This game takes place inside the same mansion as The 7th Guest. The mansion is more detoriated than the previous, your character uses a flashlight while moving around. The gameplay is the same as The 7th Guest. Pointing and clicking along, you must solve puzzle after puzzle in order to continue on deeper in the mansion and figure out more of the story. Anyone who likes puzzle games should play it.

This game was one I enjoyed when it was first released in the 1990s. Unfortunately, it has not aged well. The seveth guest was known for being one of the very first games with full-motion video, and animated screen transitions instead of slide-show transitions. But even when the 11th hour was first released, the novelty had worn off. And twenty years later, the graphics [which were the best features] are now considered low-resolution. The interface is clunky by modern standards, and the puzzles frankly are not that interesting.

If you are out for a nostagia trip, the 7th guest will better satisfy the urge. Or watch the reconstructed movie on Youtube.
