I love how every room is a different room to search. I can't stand when games make you go back to the same rooms to find objects. This game was fairly easy w/ a little extra effort in finding certain clues or locating a particularly small object. But it was entertaining, although a bit confusing in the story itself... It wasn't too long; in fact, relatively short compared to most games. It kept my attention and that's what's important!
Really enjoyed the story, so decided to buy the game, but after two sittings (probably about 2 hours max), the game is over! Such a shame considering the story was intriguing and ambiguous, but alas... Worth a look, but quite forgettable *sigh*

I thought this game was OK for an hour as I just played the trial version of the game. Just like the typical hidden object game of finding things. Most very easy a few a little challenging but hints which charges up pretty quick to help you along. What made this game just "OK" was I thought there was way too much dialog interruption. You find a few items then dialog which you can skip through it but I found it annoying after a while. I give this 3 stars overall. Not a game I'd be interested in purchasing. Not enough to hold my interest.
This game was easy and went from relaxing to boring in two shakes of a cats tail. This game lacked challenge. The lag between game screens seemed to be intended as fillers to extend an otherwise short game. I feel this game should go back to the drawing board. In its present form, I would not recommend purchasing this game. As for anyone who has purchased it, I hope they can get a refund. They deserve it.

Dumb, stupid, boring and slow. I didn't like this and finally gave up out of boredom. Not innovative in story or technology. I miss my Real Arcade.

I finished the game in less than an hour. While the game wasn't overly hard, the story makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

If you are looking for a challenge and an intriguing storyline this isn't it. If I could give this game a zero, I would. What a disappointment. The plot is unbelievable and the graphics although nice too small to see. This is definitely an easy game but there is no challenge and nothing to make me want to play again. Not worth the money.

This is the first HOG that I have NOT finished. I really didn't care for the storyline. I like a game when the objects are not necessarily in plain sight, but this one was ridiculously difficult. The music was depressing and sad, which didn't help with the storyline. Can not recommend.

Well, it wasn't the worse game I've ever played, but it wasn't all that great either. The graphics are good in places and patchy in others, the objects could be quite difficult to find but the hit bar loaded back up quickly enough. The story could have been a lot better, but was quite entertaining ~ although slightly ridiculous at times. It was neither great nor poor ~ so as a whole it was pretty so so! And not one single pipe to find ~ gotta be a first in a HOG!!!
I found this game very repetative. The story line was sad and depressing. The ending in no way finished the story line. Some of the mini games where ok. Not enough to make this game worth spending my hard earned cash. I say save your money and find a different game to play. Too dark and depressing.

The overall story idea seemed interesting, but the dialogue was completely unrealistic and very poorly written. It took to long to get to the real story (Russia) and it was very boring, slow and cumbersome...uninstalled after 60 minute trial.

The premise of the story is intriguing - why is this young woman experiencing blackouts? I found the cartoony-style annoying. There was no way to speed it up! The scenes were sometimes too dark to find items without using up clues, too. I didn't mind going back to the same scenes, that's been done in other games. I DID find the ending a complete letdown. No questions were answered, and I was a bit confused - was all of this done to reincarnate Rasputin? As a free download, it was ok. I would not pay to own it.
I found the story interesting but a bit dark. Rasputin is a shadowy, mystical figure and this was well portrayed. I got annoyed by the wait between scenes for the game to load and my mouse was a bit jerky at times. The game was long enough and the puzzles were varied and quite interesting.

Felt let down. Kept waiting for something really exciting to happen. Plot very shallow.

I am sorry I purchased this game. Shortly after the 60 minute demo the game was finished. It had way too much dialog .Some of the objects were very easy to find and some were harder, but you had plenty of clues because the clue finder filled up fast. It was a fun game but I would not recommend purchasing it

For the time I got to play this game I really enjoyed it! My computer ran this game really slowly so I didn't get into it as far as I would have liked in the free hour; and that is the ONLY reason I'm not buying this game. I think the story line on this game was very interesting, and the dialogue between the characters was very realistic. I would have liked to have seen where things were going to go and what adventure(s) awaited me... Yes, it does seem like a bit too much time is spent over and over again in the same room, coming back each time with a different set of objects to find. But, even with that, at least when you go back each time it is for an interesting purpose. Like, one time you go into the room to find the kids toys, you are packing your bag the next time, and finding pieces of a telephone in order to put it together in a puzzle the next time. And it does throw in the ability to open cabinets and drawers where more things are hidden, which is also more fun. It does seem like some of the items are difficult to see when you are searching for them (they do a good job of hiding them,) but they balance that out with some items being really easy to find. And that is what makes it more challenging and fun. I would rather that, then to breeze through the game and be bored. If the game would have run as quickly and smoothly as it should I definitely would buy this one! The story line just sells it for me.
