Investigate the legend of Dire Grove

The Celtic legend of Dire Grove has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. Considered a fairytale, its telling was meant to frighten small children into staying in their beds through the night. A recently unearthed artefact in England, however, proves the dark legend to be true! Use your wits and hidden object talents to follow the trail of a group of missing graduate students in Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove!

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
A good, fun, and nice looking Hidden Object Game, which will pass a couple of hours. So, if you want something more substantial, and involving, try Barrow Hill: Curse of the Ancient Circle (PC DVD). The two scenarios are virtually identical, with Barrow Hill being released a couple of years ago. Dire Grove is obviously made by a foreign designer, as they seem to know very little about "York Shire", and think that we use dollars and gasoline. But, if you can see past the obvious influence from another game, and get past the cultural mistakes, Dire Grove is a good game, if...and only if... you like Hidden Object adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really great skill required to play and enjoy 8 May 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
One of our all time favorites this game was a great puzzler from the begining to the end and not too easy to play also, there were many levels of thinking and puzzlement to complete we found that this game also lasted a long time so was very good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dire can be fun! 10 Jun 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Probably the best balanced game of the 'hidden object' type that I have come across. The puzzles are principally a matter of logic. Items are collected and used to solve other problems. I particularly liked the inclusion of a walk-through; it's easy to call on only when needed, and there was certainly one particular problem (involving the wolf) that would not have ever occurred to me. In addition to the main game there are particular objects dotted around which, when identified, lead onto a further stage. Thoroughly enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, Good Game 13 Jun 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed previous Mystery Case Files games, particularly the 'Ravenhearst' thread, but found that the themes, effects and some of the attempts at humour to be increasingly daft and cringeworthy. This is not so with Dire Grove, which I think is MCF's best release to date.

A good background story, complex puzzles and well-arranged Hidden Object sections combine to ensure hours of gameplay and excellent value for money.

I didn't know what to expect when I saw that the story is revealed through live-action video clips, but I was pleasantly surprised. The four actors are talented, engaging and plausible and you feel for them as their fears increase (the chap who plays Jack, the guy with glasses, is also seriously gorgeous... not that that influenced me in any way, hehehe...).

Quality artwork throughout and problems to solve that genuinely require thought make Dire Grove a fantastic product. Some of the effects and clips, however, would probably be a little too frightening for younger players, but that just adds to the fun for the rest of us!

4.0 out of 5 stars dire groovy 4 May 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed playing this game very much good puzzles not too complicated but interesting also I liked the storyline (a little blair witchified at times) but most enjoyable, the downside is it,s a little too short & the ending is rather abrupt ( it made me want to go on playing ) having said that I,m glad I bought the game & I would certainly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars not that dire
Well it seemed ok for adults to play and took several hours of dabbling to complete. Perfect for people like me with no friends who have nothing better to do.
