Real Crimes: The Unicorn Killer

This game was very boring. The game also provides you with too many hints. Being it was a historical reenactment type plot it wasnt all that compelling since the outcome was a given, but game play wise it was fairly decent, no weirdly names objects, and the dialog while needing proofreading here and there didnt seem to have any real "Engrish" problems. There's no gore involved so kids could play it but whether they'd get into it, I don't know. The story moves fluidly and there is no continual going back and forth to same place. Every time I quit playing and came back to it, it hadn't saved and would start from the beginning again. The story sticks to the facts of the real crime. I also really appreciated that I could flat turn OFF the mini games, which I find quite annoying- I play for the object hunt not the inane mini games. The mini games, although a welcome addition, were a bit too easy. The game is way too short; I think most people would have no trouble completing this game in less than two hours. I pribably could have finished it quickly but it was so dark and depressing it I put it off for several weeks before going back to it. The mini games were unique and quite fun, even though I failed one no retrys. A waste of time in my opinion. Additional hints are earned by finishing mini puzzles correctly and other actions in the HOS. It got to the point that I was searching for pale gray images in the background.

I'm not sure if this was done by the same people who did Jack the Ripper but if it is they ought to be ashamed. The story moves fluidly and there is no continual going back and forth to same place. Mini puzzles are mixed in with the HOS and are also repetitive. Some scenes are literally very dark as well. The HOS are straight junk piles with no upgrades at all. The mini games were unique and quite fun, even though I failed one no retrys. The mini games are moderately challenging and the one continual game nice touch. No replay value. This isn't about a Unicorn but a criminal by the name of "Unicorn". The scenes and game play are repetitive. Don't waste your time. I like something that is going to give me some more bang for the buck. Please don't give all the negative reviews your full attention and at least try this surprisingly good game.

I pribably could have finished it quickly but it was so dark and depressing it I put it off for several weeks before going back to it. The graphics are great. There was no excitement and not enough of a challenge. I was all the way through the first 'segment'. Overall boring. This isn't about a Unicorn but a criminal by the name of "Unicorn". You play a new FBI agent assigned to this case to help the FBI agent who has been working the case since the beginning.

It's the same answer for all the games that I have thought about purchasing. The game takes as long to play as it did to read the prior sentence. There maybe 20 locations, with only one HOS per location, which is another reason the game is so short. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by BrittysMom from Just Ok the game quickly becomes boring. Upon completion of this game, I felt no sense of achievement; I merely sighed and thought, "Is that it?

  1. You follow the story of the Unicorn killer. The hints are counted down, and if you don't solve a mini puzzle, you don't get credited for hints. I think this says a lot because I own at least 50 games from big fish.

  2. The HOS are straight junk piles with no upgrades at all. The game is way too short; I think most people would have no trouble completing this game in less than two hours. Overall boring.

  3. So, for that reason alone, I will not purchase this game although I earned 7 hints by the end of the free demo. Rated 5 out of 5 by Innovativemom from Great Game I loved this game. Overall boring. If it weren't for the fact it's based on a murder it could be a child's game. Date published: Rated 3 out of 5 by BrittysMom from Just Ok the game quickly becomes boring.

  4. This isn't about a Unicorn but a criminal by the name of "Unicorn". This appears to be a very old game that probably should be retired, although it might work well for a beginning player if you can get past the subject matter. A waste of time in my opinion. Yes, this is strictly nothing but HOGs hidden object games and mini games but the story line is surprisingly interesting. These puzzles center around the FBI lab and include such games as swapping tiles and matching two of a kind.

  5. I also really appreciated that I could flat turn OFF the mini games, which I find quite annoying- I play for the object hunt not the inane mini games. Being it was a historical reenactment type plot it wasnt all that compelling since the outcome was a given, but game play wise it was fairly decent, no weirdly names objects, and the dialog while needing proofreading here and there didnt seem to have any real "Engrish" problems. The HOS are straight junk piles with no upgrades at all. Honestly don't waste your time.

  6. My only gripe is the character we're meant to be is a woman with a right attitude - and I am a woman. Luckily I got it for free. I wouldn't want to work with her, that's for sure, cocky little madam! You follow the story of the Unicorn killer.

I will recommend to anyone who enjoys a little sleuthing, however. So, for that reason alone, I will not purchase this game although I earned 7 hints by the end of the free demo.

  9. The Inventory that is displayed appeared to be just for the HOs. What a waste of time. There maybe 20 locations, with only one HOS per location, which is another reason the game is so short. Didn't buy and advise you not to buy as well. A waste of time in my opinion.

  10. HO screens are seriously lacking, items are the same color as background. The story moves fluidly and there is no continual going back and forth to same place. Yes, this is strictly nothing but HOGs hidden object games and mini games but the story line is surprisingly interesting. I would rate this as a kid friendly game as well.

  12. The mini games are moderately challenging and the one continual game nice touch. Having one item with a clue instead of a name, or require two objects to interact added some variety to the lists. There is a lot of dialog, but without it, the game would have been even shorter. My only gripe is the character we're meant to be is a woman with a right attitude - and I am a woman. Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by mrm from Surprisingly good game.

  13. The game is way too short; I think most people would have no trouble completing this game in less than two hours. I uninstalled it after just a few scenes so I can't tell you much more. Happy Gaming! Yes, this is strictly nothing but HOGs hidden object games and mini games but the story line is surprisingly interesting.

  14. Theres quite a number of items that are very well hidden, but if you see one hidden that well you may as well click on it because you can guarantee thats on the list. Finally: the writing is just plain bad. I will recommend to anyone who enjoys a little sleuthing, however.
