I Know a Tale

OMGosh! Where did this game come from .... and WHO really expects us to purchase it?

An older scene ... depicted by the model of the car ..... with 2 people appearing to go antiquing. Nope. They are interested in ........... robbery. Ok. They demand, at gunpoint, that the proprietor of this store "open the safe". He does, a blinding light appears and .............. ....... .....

Your character is the town's Sheriff, sent out to investigate the robbery gone wrong.

The graphics ..... awful. Some black/white scenes, mostly very sepia-toned. Very one-dimensional, even with the use of live actors.  I hope they got paid well. Voice overs .... awful.  Clearly the lip syncing did NOT match the mouth movements. Music and Sound fx .... awful. Hmmmm. I detect a pattern here.

There are 2 difficulty levels - casual and hard. YAY!  Not.  A tutorial, journal that contains notes, clues, etc., a "fingerprint scanner" that doubles as a videotape machine but looks more like a more modern-ish video camera and a crystal. No idea what this crystal does. No map ... No transportable hint button.

You, apparently, will locate a number of videotapes that will help your investigation. During the entire demo, I went back and forth, and forth and back, and back and forth... well .... lots and lots of times ..... in/out of 3 rooms. I mean, seriously????

You find a little girl in one of the rooms and give her the crystal. Then, she is ..... ignored. A frightened LITTLE GIRL!!!! dGiven a crystal that people had DIED over .... and then ignore her. Yeah. Like that.

The HOGs were list type only. One HOG indicated that you needed to "locate the items to fill up the crystal". No list appeared. Guess what???? You're looking for ..... morphing objects! Glad I figured THAT one out. Mini games? Um.....boring. One mini game will definitely be difficult for those with arthritis or hand problems ...... it was long .... longer ..... yeah.  I thought it would never end and finally, my hand gave out and I "skipped".

Right off the bat I can tell you this is NOT going to be a purchase for me. Boring, boring, boring .... no entertainment value, boring (did I say that already?).  The storyline made no sense and there was no cohesion between the storyline and all this backtracking through 3 rooms and the items you found, etc.

I do not recommend this game for anyone. Oh, but I DO recommend BFG empty their vault of older games such as this one and have a .... BONFIRE! Bet you thought I was going to say a yard sale, 
Don't waste your time trying the demo. There is absolutely NO reason someone should use an hour of their time with this.  Go to a movie, read a book, play with your pet or kids, take a nap.  ALL these would be an infinitely better way to spend this hour.

Where am I going? And why am I in this hand basket!!!?
