This is a very good game, and it has a good story and good characters. It has many plot twists and will keep you coming back for more. Pick this game up as soon as possible and play it. You will love this gem, and might even find it to be one of the best adventure games you've ever played.

Případ čarodějek ze Smailholmu je unikátní dílko, které by vám nemělo uniknout. Sice vyžaduje znalost angličtiny, ale opravdu za to stojí. Záhadná úmrtí, postupné odhalování souvislostí, tajemné lokace, spletité vztahy, láska i smrt – to vše vás čeká v tajemném skotském městečku.

On the whole, the third case Ben Jordan solves is the best so far, and we are most certainly looking forward to the next ones!

Nemám moc argumentů, co bych mohl autorům vytknout. Je vidět, že se jedná o zkušené tvůrce, kteří své mnohaleté zkušenosti spojené s vývojem adventur úročí na každém kroku a výsledek je tak skutečně perfektní. Mě nezbývá nic jiného než se začít pomalu těšit na další díly, jež se vám pokusíme přinést v několika dalších dnech.

In conclusion Ben Jordan Case 3: The Sorceress of Smailholm is a good game, and, I would say, a definite improvement on its predecessor. It appears to be the point at which the major story arc of the series as a whole begins; Cases 1 and 2 seem to me to be effectively interactive introductions to the character and his world. Furthermore it develops a more interesting and, for me at least, immersive atmosphere than do the previous two games. While the graphics are still not a highlight of the game, they do seem to be improving a little, slowly over the series, and the music remains a more positive aspect of the game. Overall, I found the game to be very enjoyable.
