Review for game 9: The Dark Side Of Notre Dame

The Festival of Fools is in full swing in Paris when the gargoyles of Notre Dame Cathedral abduct a festivalgoer in plain sight. What was assumed to be a festival stunt turns out to be something much more foul. You are hired by the Paris Police to work the arcane angle of the case in this fantastical reimagining of Victor Hugo’s classic tale.

A hidden object game with a bite!
April 7, 2013

Put on your thinking caps, your going to need them with this not so simple hidden object game. If there wasn't a map you might never find your way to where you need to be. Two of the challenges it tried for a while but, I am just not good at that type so I did not skip until I my head was going to pop off in anger. For along time I did not like hidden object games they just seemed way to easy, or perhaps that is not fair to this game type, I mean I was looking for more of a challenge, adventure. Well I can state this has it all. This is a high mid level to high level game.

Ah Voila! Fantastique!

GAME COMPLETED TWICE Story: The gargoyles of Notre Dame come alive and kidnap a young lady. The Paris Police can?t admit the existence of paranormal events, so you are invited to solve the mystery. Unsurprisingly, the story is somehow connected to your role as the Last Descendant of the Clan of 9. Developer: Play Favorite Games Release Date: Mar 2013 Extras: Guardian Amulet, Interactive Jump Map, Gladriel A little more fanciful, light hearted and easier game than the original ?9?, this sequel is a wonderfully put together game that I believe would still offer challenge enough for our ever-demanding adventure brethren. HOPA fans will be pleased to hear that the puzzles aren?t impossible, and are outnumbered by some exceptionally beautiful HOs. Which are heavily interactive and are almost a puzzle mini-game in themselves. As everyone else will tell you, this is a beautiful, and classy game. Excellent graphics, music, voice acting. This is as you?d expect after the first ?9?. The jump map is essential, and invariably helpful. I didn?t need the hint button at all, but it is a large and complex game area and I would have lost my way frequently without the map. Gladriel is adorable, but I felt she seemed out of place in this story - just a little too much magic.

I've only spent about four hours so far on this game 1 1/2 on the cash register puzzle alone. This game rocks. The puzzles are different than any I've seen and are VERY challenging. I like it so much, I left to tell you about it. I can't wait to see if there is a prequel or sequel to this, because it's going to be mine. Graphics are great, again, puzzles are different, which I like. No more same ol same ol here

Excellent game!

Excellent game, based on a very interesting and original stroyline and setted in the magic Paris.. and you can really have the feeling of! Graphics are fantastic and the sound magic, all fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the "Ville Lumi?re". The game is intriguing and hooks you from the beginning on, is fluid but makes you also think about where to go on what to do next (that i like!)...there are a lot of beautiful locations to visit, HOG are very funny and puzzles, most on the difficult side, are original and make work the brain. I loved our heping friend Gladriel, very nice and funny! The main game took me more then 5 hours, playing hardcore (no skip or hint button available) and relaxed, reading the story and the dialogues. I played the full version of the CE, with a lot of achievements to get, but the bonus chapter was nothing really worth the double price..., round about 40 minutes of gameplay not so challenging or interesting, a sort of flash back on the beginning of the story of the cathedral...If you don't care much on wallpapers, music & co...i suggest you to purchase this SE, really a 5 stars game you cannot miss!

fun puzzle game

I dont normally write reviews but felt I had to on this one. It is seriously one of the best games I have ever played. Good,good fun.It kept me interested all the way through and I didnt want to stop playing it. Thanks for such a great game.

What's not to like about this game. The King ordered a powerful amulet be divided in half because it's magic was to powerful for one man to contain. The King didn't know the amulet wasn't divided equally with one half still in the guardians posession and the other half has now been used to bring the gargoyals to life, kidnapping the mayors daughter! Your task is to quietly investigate this matter that the town believes was part of the festivals activities. The mini games are really fun such as a grid with numbered buttons 1-4 which you must move all buttons to a different slot in the amount of space that button says like two spaces up or 4 spaces over. You will recieve a map with tasks that allows you to travel to that location, three modes of difficulity from casual to hardcore, and a hint system that tells you exactly what to do with no penalties because only the CE has achievements. The graphics are crisp, the developers have paid attention to detail, the cutscenes are HD quality and the story is captivating. Honestly you can skip the demo and just buy this one, it's a keeper.

Great graphics and some challenging puzzles
March 12, 2013

I loved this one! The graphics are great! The story is good. There are 3 game modes. There is no journal but an interactive map, very useful since there is a lot of to and fro. Some mini-games are really challenging. The game is not very long, about 2 1/2 hours, but I still recommend it.

Love it!!

I played the demo of this game in Collector Edition and now I purchased the SE. Great game, full of play and thought provoking intrigue. Beautiful to look at and listen to. Plenty of action, Hidden object games are really good. You get a little "pal" to work with too!! You have to really think and remember all the places and move your cursor around the entire field of play. There are things all over the place. Hint button is really good, will lead you to where you have to go if need be. I am having a blast playing this and hope you will too!! Enjoy!!

Outstanding Challenging Game
March 10, 2013

Review is on finished Demo - and playing on casual mode : This game caught me from the very start, Challenging puzzles (puzzles that vary in difficulty ) - there is always the Skip/Reset button if you get stuck or you lose your patience. The HOGs are clear - and not too HOS heavy, the quality of graphics are very well done, great storyline, cut-scenes that were well done. music changes with diferent locations. Three levels of difficulty, useful hints, achievements,The crowbar is very useful and it stayed in my tools. Got startled a few times from werewolves,ghosts jumping out at you.This is another BFG Winner ! My decision now is whether to go with the CE or the SE.

Very nice
March 20, 2013

I really enjoyed this game. I hesitated very long before buying because I didn't like too much the first one. But this one was really better. The music is beautiful, the graphics, the HO are nice too. The puzzles are not that easy and I enjoyed. I really like when a lot of puzzle remain to do at the end. It gives the feeling that there is so much to do again. I don't know about the CE version but I had enough for my money with this version.
