As good as it gets!
December 19, 2011

Both Nick Chase episodes have been top notch games. They are old classic private eye stories (think Humphrey Bogart film noir) with wonderful graphic novel style illustrations. The music is appropriate to the scene, yet unobtrusive. There is a nice balance between adventure elements (I'm an old adventure gamer), puzzles, and hidden object scenes. There is a definite story line, not just a series of puzzles or HOS. No spoken dialog, but the text is easy to read and well-written #no poor translations or typos that I noticed). As with the first episode, this one is a story unto itself--that is, you don't need to play them in order to know what's going on, and there is a nice, tidy ending with no cliffhangers. I can't wait for the next one!

As Good as the Original
July 28, 2012

I actually played this game before the original Nick Chase (very early in my gaming life). I played this on an iPad and will buy it again if it ever comes out in Mac format. This game is special and not just cuz it got me hooked on adventure/puzzle/HOG games, but because it's like watching a old film noir movie. Exceptional story line the pushed forward with excellent puzzles and HOGs. I just wish it were longer. You'll love the story, the acting (the guy who does the voice over for Nick Chase should win awards), the feeling created by the artists. I can't praise this enough and I urge you to enjoy it as well. This is money wisely spend,

DECENT BUT FRUSTRATING
March 13, 2012

I sincerely apologize. Perhaps I am harder to please than I thought. As a general rule, this game was adequate. The nice parts involved the ability to gain hint points relatively easy and skip puzzles. The graphics were quite dark in some spots and not the clearest, making it harder to find some things. Yet the scenes with the HO's themselves were relatively clear and easy. In short, the general scenes which led to the HO scenes were difficult to see. Personally speaking, I would not really waste my $. I am glad it was given to me as a gift. Don't let me stop you from trying this. Some may find this fun - others may find it most frustrating. All I can say is give it a try - you should get a pretty good idea of whether you'll enjoy it or not.

Enjoyable game but missed the voice of Nick
April 30, 2014

After playing the first in this series, I looked forward to hearing Nick's voice again, but alas, that didn't happen. No voices at all but the game was longer and had more HOS then the first episode. There was some good puzzles also and the usual comic book drawing scenes were excellent. Hired to help protect a large diamond, the game has several twists and introduced several characters to help Nick.

Great game

Loved the comic book feel. The HO scenes were pretty easy, but I again liked the graphic novel look. Some of the puzzles were tricky just because you had to really scour the scene carefully to find all the parts/places to interact with. Some of the puzzles were a little different than the usual, but most were much like other games but with a twist graphically. The story was good and made sense. Very enjoyable game.

It Was Ok.

Storyline: Nick Chase is in his favorite bar, an obviously run-down bar - just sayin'. The bartender gives him a package someone left for our Mr. Chase. He opens the package with an artifact in it and thus goes the hunt to find out what the curse of the Deadly Diamond, Graphics: Very old-school. Could be hand-painted. Could add more color than to have everything sepia-toned. Sound: Sound effects were ok. Especially when the hint/gun goes off. I was shot before so that kind of unnerved me and, therefore, I tried very hard NOT to use it. There were no voiceovers - you have to read everything. There is a hint button in the form of an old revolver's ammo case - which will hold 6 bullets (or hints). You have to find these bullets/hints wherever you go. Sometimes even in an HOG, but not always. There is a random click penalty. Having said that, I detest, absolutely dislike, ANY game that has a limited number of hints and makes you find more or get more in some other fashion (i.e., shoot the burglar or shoot the ghost or find the bullets). I believe it takes away from the game play and what happens when you're stuck and no bullets/hints are available? Tough luck, sonny. You have a diary of sorts. Really, a notepad that you click on to find out your current objective. On the main menu bar there is a wallet - click on it and you will see that there are extras. Surprising for an SE. They comprise: 1. A strategy guide - although I didn't see it in game play, nor did I find any way to access it during game play. I did not need it. 2. Nick Chase, A Detective Story. Self-explanatory. 3. Game credits. This was an interesting game that had LOTS and LOTS to do in every scene. There were no sparkles indicating HOGs. HOGs: Yes, there were several types - from find "x" number of such and such an item (such as fuses), to silhouettes of items to a written list of items. I found these especially difficult because either items were lost in a m

PLESANTLY SURPRISED!!!!!

My review is based on the trial, only because I was afraid that there wasnt enough game left to validate a purchase. Im on bed rest and have spent enough $ on BFG but will definately be looking for this one in the Daily Deals. It was a fun comic gumshoe adventure game with just the right amount of HOS and puzzles. Nothing to challenging or original but fun just the same. I didnt think I would enjoy it with the comic graphics but that added to the fun laid back feel. Its definitely worth a look at.

Very enjoyable!

I love how they made it like a comic book for the cut scenes Sometimes it was hard to find some of the objects in darker scenes. I really liked the level of challenge. The puzzles were very fun and weren't too easy. I love playing as Nick Chase as he fights to outwit his unknown enemy. Overall a good game. I recommend it.

Well, not exactly my cup of tea...
May 28, 2012

While there was a wide selection of games and some very easy HOS's, I really didn't care for the comic book format. The game was not challenging to me and the story did not flow smoothly and did not pique my interest. I finally just got bored and stopped. It seems more like it was written for a young teen than for an adult. Since we don't all have the same taste, I would recommend trying the free hour before buying this one.
