This is an older game so don't expect quality graphics; however, the sound really added to the atmosphere and I loved exploring an old Scottish castle and it's grounds. I love point & click adventures games and I only got stuck once. This game gave me about 9 hours of gameplay.

No. And this is why:
Pros:
+In the boring starting video, I'm pretty sure that I've heard juggernaut (from dota 2) in there.
+Voice Acting

Cons:
-The movement system made me sick, you just click on places and then you just appear in that place with a new picture in front of you, you just switch pictures until you are stuck in a room with no teleports locations.
-You can restart your game from pause menu -_-
-Bad graphics
-No options at all
-You can't stay at menu and hear you favorite song because you can't mute ingame sound (well, only from computer settings).
-No cards
-No achivements
-You have no idea what to do
-Boring

Bottom line:
1/10, skip this game if you can, even if you want to make yourself throw up.

Disclaimer: I am not a big fan of these "point and click" type games because in almost all of them I feel like I am just randomly clicking on objects most of the game. This is true in this game even moreso than the majority of this genre.

Movement is in the style of "The 7th Guest"

PROS:
-Fully voice acted

CONS:
-VERY dated graphics (low res is being kind)
-Annoying movement system
-Just randomly clicking everywhere. "Gameplay" consists of moving your mouse all over each view to see what you can interact with and clicking on it...very dull as it is not obvious what you can interact with and what you can't. (For Example: You can "look at" some of the books laying around the house, but not many others although they look identical...)

There are many better point and click games out there for fans of the genre.
If you aren't a fan of the genre, then skip this one for sure.

This is by the same guys who put out Necronomicon a week or so ago. They are old games, but I think they look surprisingly good. There is no real 3D. Instead of a 3D environment like an FPS game you actually move from one point to another. And at each location you have a different 360 degree panoramic view. So it's basically like Google earth street view. The game is low-res and the images are pixellated but I think it look's good. You basically explore environment looking for items and clues etc. So far I've played for almost 1 hour. It's one of those sort of detective games where sometimes you get stuck looking for the next thing because you can't see it anywhere. But that is typical of this sort of game. Those parts are a bit tedious but I really like this game. I can see myself coming back to it.

If you like this game check my Necronomicon: The Dawning of Darkness steam review and let's play here. It is basically the same thing but H.P Lovecraft themed. Watch to the end of that video to see me get punched in the face lol

Not a bad little point and click adventure game with a bit of an annoyance in it forcing you to do everything in the correct order by locking doors.

Its an older title so the graphics are forgivable and if im honest sometimes rather funny, I still think the main character looks like a basset hound.

It is hard to see areas of interest due to the dated graphics. It also feels pretty random in picking up objects and not knowing why until you use them. I also suck at these games, because they don't make sense. Finally, it doesn't autosave, so you can get killed at a certain point and have to start over.

This game was a blind purchase in a bundle with Scratches. A few months ago, I decided to give it a shot. I wasn't disappointed. The game is a bit fantastical with a touch of a Sherlock Holmes-esque feel to it. If you enjoy Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments, you may very well enjoy this. It is a touch confusing at times, and I did occasionally need to consult a walkthrough for some of the timed portions. The mystery is enough to keep you engaged and interested to the end, and there's a good amount of action as well. The protagonist is whitty and the puzzles are fun. I'm genuinely curious about the first game in the Cameron Files series because of this installment. Those who enjoy Adventure/P&CA games will want this in their collection.

Overall, if you can get it in a bundle, or on sale, I recommend.
