5.0 out of 5 stars Super, interesting puzzle game in creepy setting., 1 Oct 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Barrow Hill (PC DVD) (Video Game)
It's a brilliant game at a great price, an adventurous gamer will not be disappointed. It's dark, scary and pagan out there in the woods! Barrow Hill is a wonderful, detailed and exciting adventure game.

I finished the game (20+ brilliantly eerie hours) over the last week and can happily say it's one of the best adventure games I have played (and I've played alot of puzzle based adventure games!). The puzzles are logical, devious and very solvable, each one weaved expertly into the storyline and locations. I never felt 'stuck' or bored, as there are many clues scattered throughout the gameworld. Speaking of gameworld, I really should mention Barrow Hill's unusual and quirky setting; as well as the actual druidic stone circle (thousands of years old) there are abandoned farm buildings, a creepy service station and desolate motel rooms to explore, as well as a square mile of richly detailed countryside.

Barrow Hill is easily the most realistic game to depict England's green and pleasant land, even if it is the creepier side of the landscape around us. The makers of the game have gone to great lengths to make sure Barrow Hill looks like the Cornwall we know, so there are plenty of signs and sights from the English countryside.

If you like adventure games, with strong story telling and great puzzles then give Barrow Hill a go. It's well worth the price, and will sit on my shelf for many years to come!

Barrow Hill also ran flawlessly on my computers (no bugs, not a single one), which include Windows ME, 2000, XP and Vista.

It's a brilliant game at a great price, an adventurous gamer will not be disappointed. It's dark, scary and pagan out there in the woods!
