About

Hidden away in the serene Scottish countryside above Loch Ness, sits Devil's Ridge Manor. But the tranquility of the estate is an illusion- spooky ghosts and supernatural phenomena have invaded this once peaceful home. At the request of the famous physicist and owner of the manor Allister MacFarley, private investigator Alan P. Cameron leaves his Chicago office for the mists of his ancestral land. But when Cameron arrives, the old physicist is nowhere to be found...

In this thrilling point-and-click adventure game, you’ll confront strange phenomena while exploring the dark corners of the Medieval castle, the old scientist’s secret laboratory and finally the troubled waters of Loch Ness.

Can you help Cameron discover the mysteries surrounding the lake of Loch Ness?

The Cameron Files: The Secret at Loch Ness reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Mediocrity Nevertheless, make Fun The Cameron Files: Loch Ness was probably already a no more than mediocre game when it was released in 2001. Nevertheless, it got a Successor ("The Pharaoh's curse") the next Year, but it is not available here on Steam. It is also Worth noting that the Steel Version Is not – as with many other – is a Port or Remake, but is the Original Version of 2001. Banshee holograms – History and Nature of the Game A typical Point n ' click game from a Time when you moved From rendered screen to Screen at the Click of a mouse, thus getting a 360 ° view. This Point sounds as negative in some other Reviews, as today's generation likes to stick To Telltale and co. Has become accustomed. Unlike the classic Adventures, however, one can die here in some Places, which can be cited as a negative Point without an autosay function. But if you Know, you play more cautiously and store more often. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=872115182 The Story is mostly set near Inverness in the old Estate Of Devil's Ridge near Loch Ness. Our Alter Ego is an American Private Investigator who gets into this Solesider in Search of his family Roots and wants to clear up the Mystery of a Kidnapping and strange Crystals. After all, a Topic quite rarely treated for Adventures, which takes up supernatural Phenomena from Celtic Mythology, does not overuse and somewhat sensibly weave into History: The Monster is not what it seems! Other issues that have been addressed include the Misuse of Research and the Gap between Technological Progress and Tradition. Overall, I found the Story to be unused and well told, always peppered with smaller Surprises, even if the Main Person is not one of the likeable Contemporaries. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=873441161 Triskillian? – Language and Sound Of course, this is not about the three Celtic Worlds, but about the Voiceover: This is pleasantly completely set to music in German and not even too bad. In most Cases, you meet the Idiosyncrasies with Accents quite well. Background Music also integrates with Bagpipe Music into the Scenery, but never seems intrusive. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=872115119 Loch Pixel – Graphics Now though graphics: Another Criterion that many Reviews mention in their Review. And this Time they're Right. Even for 2001, the Interior view of the Castle is simply poorly implemented: Coarsely grained, the Colour Scheme chosen in such a way that one can hardly distinguish brown from red – which also Evokes fruit moments in some Puzzles. The extensive External Graphics are a little better: A better Job Has been done here, so that the Majority of the Game is also graphically average. The Animations of the People and the few Cutscenes are completely okay for this Time, the latter partly fuzzy. Lost Ways? – The Puzzles Finally a Look at something not quite Inessential At Adventures: The Puzzles. For the most part, these were well integrated, logical and quite variable. In Addition, there are two and three Exceptions: The Discovery through an Underwater Labyrinth, which I succeeded relatively soon, but led to Frustration among many; The Timescales that can lead to Death without Notice. This is not very solvable. Even the Orientation at the beginning in the large Castle is not easy and leads again and again to the same Paths and annoyed Rum clicking – of the undifferentiated Graphics Thanks. The rough Help is a Notepad with the most important Information listed there during the Game. Verdict: The Cameron Files: Loch Ness is not a very good Game. But the 5 Hours I needed until the satisfying End, I was well entertained. Technically flawless with an unused and well-told story, I was able to blurter the negative Aspects. I cannot comprehend the many bad Reviews (only 35% positive reviews) that come mainly from Newcomers to the Point n ' click industry; Bringing patience, the Will to Own Performance and trying to respect some Weaknesses no longer seems modern. For the Price of just under 3 Euros, it seems appropriate to me to recommend the Game for Friends of the Division – but also for People who want to experience a nice Story in The north-west Of Europe. Other: Because of Age, there are neither achievements nor Trading Cards and the Steam overlay doesn't work either.
