Classic puzzles, but nothing new

If you're a fan of puzzle games, you'll recognize the vast majority of puzzles in this game. Although there's really nothing ground breaking, there is an acceptable variety to keep you from getting bored.
My main complaint with this game is the amount of pointless room to room travel. In addition, the map screen is slow to load. Still, if you're a fan of the genre, this game delivers puzzles with attractive window dressing.

Horrible

The only cracking I wanted to do was to the disc

I've rented bad games from here before, but this was the first game that I actually sent back the same day I got it.

The premise seemed great - go through the game, solve puzzles, etc. Right up my alley. I then get to the second puzzle (a square sliding affair) that I spent an hour on with no results - even walkthroughs didn't help.

There's no instruction as to where to go in the game and how to solve the puzzles, and they're not as intuitive as you may think. The controls are also clumsy, and the narration not good.

Don't waste your time.

My wife and I were VERY disappointed in the game. After all the reviews I anticipated a fun time. NOT!! The game was frustrating and very difficult to navigate. I am VERY glad I didn't BUY the game and only rented it via Game Fly. Receiving no paper instructions with the game and also unable to print any out via the internet made it almost impossible to play which contributed to our frustration.
