Diehard GameFAN: Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake Collector’s Edition Review

DHGF: Shadow Lake isn’t terrible. In fact, it does a lot of things right. The core gameplay is intact and does things a bit differently from most other games in the genre. Visually, the game works thanks to a more realistic approach that gels with the live actors. However, those same actors end up hurting the game thanks to some seriously hammy overacting that kills the game’s story and makes it hard to listen to. Some of the puzzles are broken messes that are frustrating to play. Even the bonus content is suspect, as you’re not likely to get more than half an hour of extra time out of it. This game is about as big a letdown as it could have been. (Mystery Case Files: Shadow Lake, PC) -
