Very good adventure game, filled with puzzles that will often provoke you to ease your way out with the Hint button. But you're a brave one, and will figure it all out. Sometimes game is quite a complicated and requires you to search through the whole map, before you can complete your task. Items are so well hidden in the enviromenet, that they blend in one with everything around.
Overall fun adventure game, not the longest but with it's story and interesting puzzles.

This is a terrible, awful, crazy-making game. The antagonists behave in idiotic, self-sabotaging ways; the voice acting would be an embarrassment in a game from 1995; and the puzzles simply make no sense. (Restacking crates magically makes a ruby appear? Why?!) And of course no bad adventure game would be complete without a generous dose of find-the-one-interactable-pixel scavenger hunts.

Where Angels Cry simply isn't worth its price point; even if it were free it wouldn't be worth your time.

It's probably taken me longer to write this review flaming the game for not having background shading in the text bubbles than it would have taken the developers to add some shading to the text bubbles so the poor schmuck who has to play this game isn't forced to read white text on a white background with about a two pixel black outline that does very little to actually make the text readable.

Beyond that, other reviews have summed this one up. It's an extremely "budget" pixel hunt. Not at all worth the $7 price tag when you could just check out an I Spy book from the local library for free, and check out a regular book while you're there if you're looking for a story.

Not quite an adventure game but a better developed hidden object game is the best way I can summarise this experience. Some good puzzles, especially towards the end, but the negatives just tip it the wrong direction. Bad graphics, dodgy voice acting, some quite linear gameplay, and for 2 hrs, too short. The story could have been fleshed out a bit more but felt rushed. For the right price this is a short time killer but don't expect much depth here.

This is sort of a half point and click mystery game in the style of Nancy Drew and half item find-it game. The graphics and voice acting are up to the standards of an item find game, but if you're not really into those kinds of games, it seems really sub-par. And unless you really enjoy puzzles, you're going to blast through the entire story in an hour and a half. Speaking of, there really isn't a story or a big mystery. An in-game character tells you flat out who the murderer was in the first night, and the rest is pretty easy to figure out from the most basic of clues. I got this as part of a Groupee's bundle, and for the $1 I paid, it was a fun entertaining use of an hour. But I wouldn't recommend it at the price they're asking for on Steam. (Especially since there's no Steam acheivements! I clicked on all those creepy angel babies for nothing!)

So far this is a pretty well executed casual point and click game developed by a very small team compared for the price.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this game, it is a casual game and a small casual game gem for the price, or while waiting for the 2014 game of your choice. It will transport you in that world.

The game definitely has cinematic ambition for mood, plot, etc..
Settings are well thought and bring good mood.
Designs are well created.
Voice acting....while it is pretty good acting and it is the team's choice, I believe it is better to stick with original voice actor instead of trying to pull accents even though it is supposed to be in the alps, hopefully it does not dither to suspension of disbelief but it definitely can be confusing for very short time, so my definite choice would have been "speak English or Italian for a good majority of the acting and elder monk(s) or special key role(s) (for example) can use a mix.
Character animation are limited and that is a good thing in this case and game.

Total hours played does not say much about my experience. I stumble on this game on Steam while working on Photoshop, Maya, Mudbox, and Articydraft open at same time, although I repeat again this game may suffer of a little - here and there, it definitely is worth it overall and I had to voice up before I go back to work or it would grind me all day long ;-)
