My husband & I had fun with this game, glad I rented and didn't buy, though, because once you finish it, you're done. (some of the puzzles you could probably play a few times, they're challenging enough that you would have forgotten how you solved it last time if you wait a few weeks!)
We definitely needed to log on the internet and do some walkthroughs on some of them!
Overall it was fun... long load times between rooms. Don't forget to LOOK at the pieces of paper and see what they say!

A wealthy man has vanished and it's up to you to find his ... will? (I thought I'd be looking for him). And so begins Safecracker. In this point and click adventure you are a safe cracking specialist who explores a mansion. Why? To go from one safe to the next, unlocking each one in order to get to the will. Sounds simple, right? Problem is, that's all the game has to offer. Safecracker doesn't have a compelling story or characters that make me want to find the next safe or continue playing the game. It also suffers from the "point and click" problem of finding the hot spots so I can interact with objects and move about the mansion. Adding to the lack of joy are long load times when I want to take a look at my inventory and a longer load time when I get out of the inventory screen. What does work in Safecracker are the puzzles. Some of them are the best designed puzzles I've seen in a while. They make almost forget the story attached to the game. But Safecracker is made just for those who don't mind tough puzzles with few hints to solve those tough puzzles. SKIP IT.
