The Black Veil

Good: Intriguing movie-quality opening sequence. Reasonably good storyline. Some interesting hidden object puzzles. With plenty of variety. Including Rube Goldberg style. And the mini-games were good fun.

Bad: Visually, too dark. Unengaging and poor dialogue. And a confusing new key on the fast-travel map (indicating interest, position or objective). Which was not very helpful!

Overall: A good detective HOPA game. With an ok story, a variety of puzzles and fun mini-games. But MCF15 failed to hit the mark in terms of challenging game play. As a result, this one is ok, but does not hit the MCF high standard. As set by games (especially the earlier chapters) in the Mystery Case Files series.

This is the 15th MCF game. See my post: Mystery Case Files Games in Order. For all the games in the series so far.
