5.0 out of 5 stars Another great installment by Jonathan Boakes January 31, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Review under Windows 7 x64.

Preface
-------------------------
It is amazing on what some people can do. Being a programmer myself, I admire the power, the work, the capabilities and the end-result of Mr. Boakes. Darkfall III - Lost Souls is another great game that any adventure gamer should not miss.

Installation
-------------------------
1 DVD which completely installs to the hard disk, not needed afterwards to play the game and no stupid protection mechanisms. 100%.

Scenario
-------------------------
You are a Police Inspector (hey, no name?) , having left unfinished business in the old creepy and mysterious Dowerton railway. You were assigned that missing girl case before but you were caught trying to manipulate the evidence to support charges against your suspect. This time you have to find out what happened to the girl, prove the guilt of your suspect, and restore your name and status. Not bad for a DarkFall, 90%.

Vote for: Simple and clean scenario
Vote against: Not that unique, but this has never been an issue for me.

Graphics
-------------------------
As in any DF game, graphics are very good and creepy. This time you are fighting darkness and your weapon is light and patience. There are some problems in finding your way out, and be sure to look up and down in many screens, as they are clues/objects to be collected.

Vote for: Full screen graphics, nice coloring, atmospheric.
Vote against: Not that much animation.

The graphics are not as perfect as in Lost Crown, and the animation is minimal (In LC, almost *every* screen had some brilliant animation element). But when compared to the other DarkFalls, the game deserves an 90%.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylishly creepy August 17, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The third installment of the Dark Fall games reprises the Dowerton train station and hotel featured in Dark Fall: The Journal. This time, you are playing as a nameless Inspector who has come to investigate the 2005 disappearance of an 11 year old girl, in the hopes of resolving the mystery that ruined your career.

Compared to the earlier Dark Fall games and especially the mammoth undertaking that is Lost Crown, Lost Souls is streamlined and plays quickly. Many of the puzzles are logic/common sense rather than inventory-based, so it takes some mental bandwidth. Several puzzles repeat themselves throughout the game (e.g., picking locks or talking to ghosts) so once you solve the first one, you have something to work from. The game also requires manipulating objects by zooming in and dragging up/down/left/right, which I found awkward. A few puzzles are timed--if you happen to die, the game automatically restores you.

Pros: The graphics are excellent--almost as good as Syberia--so if you like (or at least tolerate) the macabre, then there is PLENTY to look at. I'm not a big fan of the ghost-hunting equipment that Jonathan Boakes likes to use, so I was happy that I didn't have to mess with goggles and ghost-sensors and whatnot. Best of all, the game flow isn't overly burdened with complexity or a zillion characters to keep track of, so things move along quickly. Often, solving a puzzle and walking out of the screen is enough to prompt guidance on where to go next from a mysterious character who sends timely SMS messages.

Cons: So if the design is superbly atmospheric, what's the problem? The story--both by itself and in context with the other Darkling games--is pretty illogical.

4.0 out of 5 stars dark fall: lost souls November 13, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Not a bad game overall. The hotel was really bad, as in good. It was totally creepy and disgusting. I really did get chills running up my arms more that a couple of times. I liked the idea that the inspector could change the bad things that had happened in the past. The ending was not a total let down as so many of the current adventure games seem to be.

I liked the game. I recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor design choices in this game March 26, 2011
By ravl13
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The atmosphere is pretty good, but this game is impossible without a walkthrough. You have to look up and down sometimes (this is a still image game), but you find things so infrequently with it that you sometimes forget to do it, and if you didn't do it in a spot you were supposed to do, you're stuck until you look at a faq. Also, at one point there is a bag you look in, and you pull out a note. I then proceeded to be unable to continue because I was missing a key item. I looked at a guide and it turns out you're supposed to click on the bag AGAIN in order to get another key item. Oh, silly me for assuming that boxes and bags only need to be searched once!

Seriously, who pulls this kind of garbage? Imagine if other games had you search every chest twice to get all the items. Ridiculous.

And then, there's this other time that some old film is all chained up, and I tried pulling it out, and the game made it clear that those films were not coming free. Turns out they don't come loose unless you pull them to the right (pretty arbitrary). I was pulling them up and down.

There is also a section where you must identify 6 random constellations out of 16. However, one of the constellations (which I needed) was not labeled, and instead one constellation was shown twice. I had to look at a guide to figure out what my final constellation was.

This series usually has some good stories and atmosphere, but gameplay execution is very bad sometimes
