Haunted Halls: Green Hills Sanitarium
Both the games in the series are really cool, but this one is my favorite and it seemed to last longer as well. Great balance of HOs/puzzles/adventure. The creativity that went into this series is what easily puts it in my top 5 favorite games. I generally categorize games in the light/wholesome or twisted/dark arena, and these games fall in the latter. Highly recommend.

Fun Creepy Game
This game is fun but don't bring anything new. For fan of hidden object game, you are sure to past a good moment.

Great fun and actually a little creepy
This was a fun game and actually had some creepy elements to it. The very end made me roll my eyes a bit, but the rest of it was full of rich graphics, a large variety of puzzles, and very challenging. In fact, this one was a bit much for me and I had to cheat / look at the walkthrough a couple of times. I don't think I should have to use a walkthrough, but some people might see that as a good thing if they like a harder challenge. If so, this one is for you!

Creepy, challenging game
Of all the games I have recently played, this has been (a) the longest, (b) the most challenging and (c) the most disturbing. The sounds alone creep you out (screams etc from inside the asylum, crying and wailing etc), let alone the visuals.
Saying that, it was an absolutely fantastic game. It took a long time to play (always a bonus), the graphics are amazing, the puzzles REALLY challenging. I have to admit I had to use the walkthrough more than once, but I put that down to the fact I'm a real beginner.
It is an amazing game, and would recommend it, however it may upset one or two more sensitive people, so be warned.

Welcome to Green Hills Sanitarium
ERS Developers hit upon a truly immersive, hidden object adventure game! You are in for a treat as the plot develops from finding your missing boyfriend who initially visited Green Hills to conduct an investigation into you discovering a macabre adventure.
A gamer's delight as you conduct gruesome searches along your quest in finding boyfriend Tim, all the while-- unveiling and unfolding ten patients' nightmarish "rooms" to ultimately free Tim.
As Winston Churchill, the greatest Historian of all time said, "The greatest thing to fear is fear itself", this game paves the way for us to relate with some of those inner fears exhibited by both male and female patients who mistakenly entrusted their minds and bodies to a complete and utter madman--Dr. Blackmore!!
Armed only with your courage, wits and a journal, numerous HO scenes, puzzles and Green Hills Sanitarium await you!
I would certainly recommend the Collector's Edition for the added Bonus Content. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

CREEPY Hidden Object adventure game!
Haunted Hills: Green Hills Sanitarium is a very creepy Hidden Object game, and very fun! I believe the storyline runs first before Haunted Hills: Fear from Childhood, and is very well done. The sanitarium appears to have been a place to treat the severely afflicted of terrible fears, but upon closer look, the fears have been used to torture the patients. Graphics, sounds, animations are excellent. The puzzles are challenging and fresh. Too scary for kids; great for those who enjoy the challenge and bizarre storyline!

Disappointed with the glitches
I bought this game some time ago and decided to re-visit it. Sadly I now remember why it has been abandoned! The storyline is gruesome - poor people trapped in horrendous nightmares and there is nothing pleasant about it. Even when rescued they remain in awful rooms! The graphics on the HO are hand drawn and unrealistic; the movement between scenarios is slow and laboured; even though I picked a correct item it would not disappear; the game shuts down at least once during play. As you can guess I am disappointed because I feel it is a game with potential.

Great game and fun
I enjoyed this game. The storyline was good and easy to get around. Did not have to go all over the place to keep going forward. I think all the ERS games are great to play.

Wild Times at the Sanitarium
This game is a blast. It has a fun story line, the hidden objects scenes are good (and some are quite a challenge), the mini games were challenging enough to hold your attention and the ending was somewhat mysterious. I really enjoyed this game and would highly recommend it.

I loved this crazy sanatorium!
What a game! You have to free your boyfriend and some patients from a creepy sanitorium. There is only one game mode.
- The storyline is really interesting. The sounds make the atmosphere freakier!
- The graphics are clear. The objects from the HOS are easy to find.
- The puzzles are sometimes quite challenging.
- There is no map, and a lot of going back and forth. Each new room is stranger than the one before!
I needed 3 1/2 hours to finish, but it seemed longer to me, since there is so much to do.
This is one of the best "asylum game" I've played!
