Special Enquiry Detail: Engaged to Kill - Dead brides everyyywhereeeeee!!!!

A new Hidden object game just came out this month and also turns out that this game is actually a sequel. I never did play the first part, but turns out that's okay because this story has no relation to the first one *phew* but at the same time this game has probably the most cliched story line ever and maybe it was a good thing that I never did play the first part.*un-phew*

So two detectives, a tom boy chick and a boring dude get a case about a missing model named Marcy, upon further investigation it turns out she was murdered and was a fifth victim to a psycho serial killer. The serial killer is notorious for killing young  bride-to-be sweethearts in the most painful and horrific manner possible.  So the detectives take it in their hands to capture the serial killer in the hopes to end the bride killing rampage once and for all.

Now as far as the game goes, unfortunately didn't reach to the expectation I was hoping for at all, in fact to be honest I did find it a tad bit boring.Let the Rant begin!

First of, the plot, now if there is anything I love most about games is the intriguing plots, but this one is so predictable, it was so predictable that I didn't even bother into looking what dialogues were being said, I just knew what was coming. With the plot being so predictable, I just didn't have the motivation to complete the game, it almost felt like I was I just wanted to finish the game just for the sake of seeing the words "THE END" and nothing more.

The next annoying part was  the voice acting for the dialogues, it was not as good as it should be, it lacked so much emotion, I mean come on, is it so hard to be a bit convincing with what you are trying to say? Why not just let your computer narrator software just say all the dialogues instead of these two lifeless souls to say anything at all!

The other issue was the puzzles, now I could be wrong in this part but I did feel that some of the puzzles were just to hard to solve, I maybe either really stupid or just bored to take effort into solving them, whatever it was i just felt they were too hard!

However there are some good points to the game, even though the plot was very predictable and weak, the serial killer still came out as an interesting character. The way the villain decides to mess with the detectives and the way the villain was portrayed through his crimes was quite interesting. Also the background scenarios and visuals in the game was pretty good, I did like some of the interactive stuff you could do in some parts of the game.

So overall the game unfortunately does not come up to the category of being something new and exciting to play but if you want to kill your boredom then sure why not...give it a try although I don't see you able to get rid of the boredom so easily with this game......just saying!^.^

Game rating : ** 2 stars

Society's puppet!

I am a puppet to this world, how long will I have people control me? How long will I have people treat me like I have no mind of my own?Why are they trying to make me look so perfect and why cant they see that what they are doing is not okay?When will I be able to be free from those strings and take control of myself? 
I wish they would stop and leave me alone, let me live the life the way I want to live!

Catwalk Countdown - The devil wears Prada sequel?

It has been quite a long time since I reviewed any games, so here is review on this fun and not so new game called Catwalk countdown. So first of the reason I want to review this game is because well, as far as I know of, this game isn't very popularized compare to the other games that ever came out and it's not so bad once you play it. Second reason is the nature of the game, I love playing horror themed games and this one was like taking a break from all the spooky and creepy plots and game play, it was more colorful and happy and that looked like fun!

So anyways, This is a easy paced stimulation game and it revolves around a aspiring fashion designer who just had about enough of her no good boss, who somehow reminds me of Meryl Streep in her awesome role as the evil Miranda from the movie, "The devil wears Prada". Well Look at the picture, doesn't she look like her? Hey you never know, she must have been an inspiration for the game!:P

So, the fashion designer, that is played by none other than you, decides to quit the job and start up your own clothing line!Throughout the game, you will meet different characters to help you make your dreams come true, from a very wise uncle to a very helpful friend and a very annoying and demanding girl. The game play is quiet simple, usually involves maintaining your routine on a daily basis and fulfilling quests to get closer into completing your goal. However for a game that involves fashion, there isn't much to do in the game, sure the story keeps you occupied but somewhere the game could have been more interesting. The entire game play can be quite repetitive and maybe it would have been more fun if there was some mini games added in and I felt the quest could have been a bit more challenging. Also, the game was too short! But then again it is better off being short if the game play was going to be so repetitive. :P

 What I did like about the game was the interactive choices we had throughout the game, you can choose whatever name you wished to be called and the characters respond to that, there are certain areas you can control dialogues the way you want them to and I thought that is pretty cool. The background environments were colorful and lovely, whoever made the art for this game made the style sweet and simple in appearance which was fantastic.  Overall the game is entertaining, something you should play if you are bored and just want to relax an have a quite girly game time. 

Game rating: *** 3 stars!
