What can spoil the joy of inheriting a manor in the Great Britain? Only the Poltergeist!
for only $ 13.99!Hello, my dear friends, once again the time has come to review new Hidden Object game from Big Fish - Shiver 2: Poltergeist. As usual, Shiver 2 isn't pure HOG - it's also includes Puzzle and Adventure game elements, and that's good. And as usual Big Fish Games released on March 2012 only Collector's Edition of the Shiver 2: Poltergeist game. Big Fish simultaneously released game for PC (download link can be found upper) and for Mac. Standard Edition will be available in the end of April. Or never :) But speaking seriously lets firstly watch video with gameplay elements, and only then we can do some conclusions about game.
Nicely drawn landscapes and locations, great interactive game videos, looking like a real thriller to me. Also Shiver 2: Poltergeist includes pretty interesting story. Can't say it's revolutionary but it isn't boring too. At least I payed attention to the storyline until the very end of game.
Long time ago a young girl was in love with the master of the Kangale Estate. He loved her too, and their destiny was appeared to be great and happy. But that was only a dream, reality changed everything to worse. Much, much worse.
From the ancient times there is some supernatural force in the Kangale Estate and it claimed to have influence on the actions that are happening there. Those force didn't like the girl and didn't want her to be a mistress of the Estate. That's why she died.
When the girl visited the lighthouse, the fire suddenly started. She was cut off from the exit by the fire, and firestorm was spreading dramatically fast. The only way for her was to go up to the lighthouse's top. But there was no salvation, fire followed her there, so the only way for her was to jump. Her beloved one seen the fire, he took the boat and sailed to the lighthouse, but he was too late. Girl jumped, girl died.
But all of this is history. Your avatar's name is Ricardo Chellini and until the age of thirty his life was really dull. But then he received a letter that he inherited a manor in England. The Kangale Estate. And now the time has come for scary adventures!
Estate placed on the island, where even in the middle of summer you won't see the light of sun - only the myst and the rain. You took the boat and sailed to the island, to your new home. No one met you on the pier, but it's even better: you can familiarize yourself with your manor by the way you want.
Soon Ricardo will find out, why the game is called Shiver: Poltergeist. Strange things will occur with him all the time. It's enough to turn around - and objects behind your back will change their positions. Fire in the Fireplace will appear by itself, doors will open and close whenever they want. Scary place to live.
If you experienced some technical problems - go to the game forum.
Shiver Vanishing Hitchhiker, but the connections between the stories are weak. Gameplay is interesting, but there is nothing extraordinary - simple puzzles, usual Hidden Object scenes. But there is also no significant cons in the game.
Buying Collector's Edition of Shiver 2: Poltergeist will give you some pleasant bonus features (absent in the Standard version) - Integrated Strategy guide, bonus gameplay (more quests connected with the rusty lighthouse and ferry), Wallpapers (in various resolutions) and Concept Art. As you may notice, everything is pretty standard for Big Fish Games Collector's Editions.
bogging, that's why it's hard to stop playing. Download Shiver 2: Poltergeist CУ - it's worth it.
