One of the things I like best about the Carol Reed games is that they take place in real places and Carol often visits historic areas in Sweden. Bosch's Damnation features locations important in the history of Swedish entrepreneur Malte Stierngranat (1871 - 1960 according to Swedish wikipedia). Besides visiting the Stierngranat Museum and learning about his life, Carol visits his unusual pyramid tomb (and solves puzzles to get inside). Within the context of the game, the father of the missing family is the son of Malte Stierngranat. Also in the game, Malte Stierngranat was an admirer of the work of painter Hieronymus Bosch. Carol has to decypher a code based on two halves of one of Bosch's paintings, the title of which is where the game gets its name.

Bosch's Damnation: A Carol Reed Mystery is yet another worthy sequel in the Carol Reed Mystery series. The game is family friendly (with no swearing or graphic violence) and takes around 10-12 hours to finish. It has been exactly a decade since Carol's first case, and I can already envisage Nyqvist working on the next mystery for Carol to solve.

The bottom line is that Bosch's Damnation is a simple, beautiful, laid back game which will allow you to take a short vacation in Sweden. It was well made and enjoyable. I give it a solid “B.”

Ik heb genoten van de vele prachtige locaties en de toevoeging vande winter is fantastisch. Jammer dat de puzzels in dit deel tegenvallen, het einde slecht is uitgewerkt en de bekende minpunten van de serie blijven bestaan.

All in all, my first experience with Carol Reed was a mixed bag. Although I was impressed from a technical standpoint, the limited number of interesting environments to explore was a drawback, and the mystery was ultimately a disappointment, with the dull backstory and an overwhelming number of locations bringing down the more interesting aspects of the narrative. The puzzles were fun, but could have been integrated into the plot a bit more so as not to feel like obvious roadblocks. I suspect that devoted series fans will enjoy spending another few hours with this installment of their beloved franchise, but there’s simply not much in Bosch’s Damnation to attract new gamers into the fold.
