Strange Cases: The Tarot Card Mystery

This game is no longer available from BFG.  I had it on a CD so was able to download and play it that way.  The gameplay feels dated, but was probably pretty good in its time.  I did like the story though.

No voiceovers and the HO scenes were straight list, Frog and Silhouettes.  Objects could be small and hard to find.  What I disliked about the HO scenes was that is was the full scene instead of a close up scene for ex: like a truck of a car or a bookcase.

Re: Strange Cases

Strange Cases: The Lighthouse Mystery

This game is very similar to the Tarot Card Mystery.  The only improvements made was now voiceovers were added.  You still needed to find a card to do the HO scenes which were the same: straight list, frog and silhouettes.  This time instead of 6 silhouettes to find they were doubled. Items again could be on the small side and the HO scenes were full screen again.

 Story was decent and length was approximate 4 hours.  I played the SE.

Strange Cases: The Secrets of Gray Mist Lake CE

This one so far is my favorite one.  I like the story, gameplay is good.  The  HO scenes are just straight list   which I prefer over the silhouettes and it is close up.  What I mean by that is instead of the HO scene being a whole room, it is now contained to a top of a table, for example. 

I had the CE for this game.  Only extras was bonus chapter, strategy guide and wallpaper which I found a couple that I liked.  The bonus chapter was pretty good and explained a few things, but not everything.  I still had questions that weren't answered after playing it.

Re: Strange Cases

Strange Cases: The Faces of Vengeance 

The last Strange Cases game is a kidnapping story in a abandoned mall.  Story kept my interest plus the gameplay was very good.  The ending was very abrupt though.  I still had inventory items left.  The why was dealt with finding newspaper articles throughout the game.  It didn't seem like a long game because it only took me a few days to play, but maybe that is because I was enjoying it a lot.

Re: Strange Cases

I liked it alright but it definitely had its faults. Didnt really like the characters either.

The nighrmare stuff freaked me right out though. I get scared very easily.
