I bought it although my favourite board game of the franchise is Arkham Horror.

First impressions are positive: the game looks nice, loading of the screens is fast and smooth, and graphics of characters common with Arkham Horror are nice and shown in quite high resolution.

Second impression is mixed: the game is hard, and tutorial is really crappy. It said that drawing of the tokens is random, but it doesn't explain that the tokens are actually d6 dice, so in the beggining you have no idea what the odds are. Also I think that it didn't explain, that blocking of the dice by monters, etc. is global, so removing these blocks are usually do-or-die decisions.

Now that I have come to understand the rules better I am extremely happy with the game, and must admit, that it gives exactly the same kind of thrill as much more complicated Arkham Horror. Plus setting up the game doesn't take hours as in tabetop version ;)

With its haunting music and beautiful artwork the game draw's you into the Cthulhu Mythos. But be warned this game can be hard but not to the point of frustration. When your fearless party expire to death or insanity, it makes you want to jump back in and take the fight to the old one's.
The aim of the game is pick four investigators and use these heroes to thwart the Old Ones plans. Each of the investigators start with some form of benefit and with the right combination you have a good chance to succeed. The game is easy to pickup and play and highly recommend it for Cthulhu buffs.

A surprisingly decent game that is perfect for some short term casual play, Elder Sign: Omens appears based off a boardgame, but has made a fairly good transition into a video game. The player takes control of four investigators and chooses who they will be dealing with, with each adventure having their own opponents with their own effects on the game. At first, you'll find easy tasks to do in your home museum. Later adventures expand past the museum, letting you go to other locations as well as giving you entirely new tasks. These adventures can be played in any order as well.

While I can not say I know the original boardgame, it does appear to have been four player. It seemed odd at first that they would turn it into a singleplayer game then, but after some playing I can safely say that the four investigators only barely interact with eachother, so instead of four players each playing a fourth of a game, they instead have one player playing the whole thing. Controls are not awful either, as one would expect from a boardgame made into a video game.

If you do not like random chance, this may not be something for you. The entire game exists of smaller adventures, in which you get what are essentially dice and need to match dice with the situation's requirements to pass. You may be lucky and complete a difficult quest in one try, or you may spend 3 turns failing at one of the simplest ones. Luckily, you have items and investigator special powers that will help you get through them. In the end, you will always have an element of random chance in it, but even then, it's a pretty good way to spend some time during slow periods.

And, of course, Lovecraft. The adventures have plenty of flavour to them and seem to be pretty close to how one would play through a Call of Cthulhu game, although clearly with less pen and paper roleplaying stuff and with more singleplayer set-in-stone stories that you can progress through.

Be sure to keep him that way, it would be a shame if he woke. Humanity probably wouldn't like it. And you're probably part of humanity.

I played this game for quite a while. And I like it - yeah it gives the table-top some computer conversion and this is fun to play. The great old ones are tough to beat and you need some good strategies, but those strategies also might fail.

Since this game has some random element as most tabletops or card games, you can either fail through bad luck or by using the wrong *ahem* investigator on the wrong playground. I just hope that there will be some expansions for the game, since there are still a lot of great old ones missing ...

Tabletop fans will love this game, most other players might get hit at the head because of the many trial and error experiences this game might offer. But on the other hand, not all games can be won. I managed to beat Yig and Tsathoggua, and the last one with very much effort - so yeah, I beat them but I didn't master the game. I like this insecurity, sometimes dice will get locked... which of course even offers more suspense and frustration at the same time.

Always keep the special abillities of your investigators in mind - it will give the edge you need to get your foe down.

Solid 9/10 for playabillity and fun.

This game is fun if you're bored and just feel like rolling dice.

What's the Game Aboout:
Choose a card, roll dice to match the card's symbols. If all symbols match your dice you collect the card's reward(s). Do this to accumulate items, trophies, and Elder Signs. Collect
enough "Elder Signs" before the "Elder God" ie Boss collects his needed "Doom" tokens
and you win the game.

You Lose when:
-All your Adventurers die
-Adventurers die when eithor their Sanity (Brain tokens) or Stamina (Heart tokens) reaches zero
-The Elder God reaches his needed Doom Tokens

Game Jargon + Translation:
-Unique Cards - (Generally) give you an extra Red Die to roll
-Common Cards - (Generally) give you an extra Yellow Die to roll
-Spell Cards - (Generally) lock your dice so you aren't forced to reroll them
-Clues - Reroll as many dice as you want
-Trophies - In game currency used for replenishing Sanity/Stamina meter, or buying Items including Elder Signs

That's the entire game, add to this each investigator has their own
little spin which gives them specific advantages over others, and
monsters get spawned to add to the amount of symbols to match, and you can
figure out the rest (if there is anything left).

Is the game fun? It's essentially themed singleplayer yahtzee.
So if you like the sound of that then yeah sure it's fun, but don't expect much else.

Watch This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh4nSpV2n4k before you play, after that it should be pretty smooth sailing. I did not find the ingame tutorials particularly helpful.

I've never played the board game version of this, but I am a board game fan, so I took to this game pretty quickly. Great fun, played it with my girlfriend, we both played two different characters (though this game is not technically multiplayer). This game is hard, perhaps thats why it really gives me "roguelike" feels while playing. I really enjoyed it overall, I'd recommened it to friends looking to kill time. Unfortunately it being single player I feel the game loses some of the charm and fun that it would have as a board game played with friends.
