I like casual point and click adventure games, and picked up this and Nightmares from the Deep on sale. I enjoyed the latter, but this? There is hardly anything here. No story, the object hunting is tiresome, ridiculously short, and the puzzles unoriginal. (Tower of Hanoi? Really, guys?)

Give it a wide pass even if on sale.

Its a decent hidden object game. For 5 bucks I felt it was money well spent.

The voice acting was ok, the storyline was somewhat interesting but I kinda felt urged to continue to play just to find more objects and puzzles. The storyline wasn't really motivating.

Its certainly not a triple A title but I enjoyed most of the puzzles and digging around for hidden objects.

This is like a stocking stuffer for people who enjoy hidden object games, I would definitely recommend it for anyone with modest expectations.

For what it's worth I used to pour scorn on hidden object games...too casual for me/kids games/generic blah blah blah.

In regards to this however, it's thoroughly enjoyable. Most likely shares elements of gameplay with the likes of Nightmares from the Deep, Angelica Weaver and the Midnight Mysteries series in that it has hidden object elements to it but your essentially advancing a story by finding objects within the game world, often combining them with each other, the game world or game characters something along the lines of an adventure game although not quite.

It really is quite well done, the whole monks and templars thing is interesting with decent logic puzzles complimenting the story, HOG and adventure elements of the game.

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.

Where Angels Cry is an okay game, considering I was expecting more of a point and click adventure and not a hidden object game (which this was mostly though it had some mini puzzles that weren't hidden object). The disappointment I found was the length of the game. To me, it was too short. I beat it rather quickly, and while it gives 3 different levels to play on, I'm sure now that I beat it in adventure mode it would take me no time at all for the other ones. I had issues in the market scenes when I was supposed to find the parts to fix the wagon. The game glitched and didn't allow me to find one of the parts I needed so I had to start over, which also was a bit of a disappointment.

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 ;-)
