The Agency of Anomalies: Mystic Hospital
Spooky Adventure Game
This is a yummy, spooky game! The description says, "Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure game." I say, "Adventure Puzzle Hiddle Object game."
Looking for tools to progress through a game seems to be the primary action here. My personal taste is for hidden object screens. This game has beautiful graphics, so the HOS are a special treat. There just weren't enough to satisfy me.
If you like adventure first, this is the game for you.

I loved this game. There were no glitches, music was ok and storyline was interesting. Graphics were amazing, but they were a little dark in the HO scenes.
Mini games were ok, nothing new. Can't wait to play the sequel.

Very good game
Mystic Hospital is a very good game. There is a lot of back and forth and at times it causes confusion which the walk-through can clear up. The HO scenes are usually very bright and clear with well hidden objects and a small number of HOS involve putting objects back into the scene. Odd, but it works. The cut scenes are very well done and the voices are not overplayed. I enjoyed the game even with the back and forth. The puzzles were another story. The majority of the puzzles were boring rote games with only a few real bright spots, but then I dislike puzzles. I did not find this game quite as good as its running mate, Cinderstone, but the differences were minor. Both were very good or better for me. The story line was a bit farfetched and weak, but at least somewhat interesting.

Abandoned Paranormal Hospital Has Chilling Atmosphere
Whoa! Demo scared me off lol!! Returned to enjoy this sci-fi paranormal-themed game. I don't understand why this game doesn't have more Rave Reviews unless the CE has them all. Moves at fast pace in finding and using needed objects and has a wide-open approach. No claustrophia for Gamers!! Loved the Sci-Fi Creatures!! Loved 'em!! Enjoy!! Mama Mia

Better Than Most
I've gotta say, this game really exceeded my expectations. The images were very nice, and I really enjoyed the style of hints they used. This is one of the better games I've played in awhile. Went ahead and bought the sequel. Hope it's a keeper, too!

Good game and not that hard
The anomalies are a good game series. The HOS do need a good eye but you can find most of the items. The puzzles are fun and most are not hard to do. The graphics are music are good. I like voice over and this one has it in most areas. You do not need to run all over the place to find clues. I feel the the pace is good but predictable. Not a hard game to me.

Paranormal Approach to Tired ?Abandoned Hospital? Tale
GAME COMPLETED SEVERAL TIMES
Story: You are a special agent with the Agency of Anomalies sent to investigate a military hospital that hosted a variety of terrifying experiments before it was abandoned. Discover the monstrosities that soldiers, doctors, and nurses have been transformed into, and try to stop a dimensional vortex from destroying the world.
Release Date: Jan 2012
Extras: Time Scores, Cut Scene Replays
Or is that paramilitary? This game contends with those tried and true villains ? the army and their mad scientists, using the Anomalous Activity Detector (aka Hint). This device identifies areas of interest, and if asked, the solutions. This can be surprisingly unhelpful, and recharge is slow, so the game is not easy.
The HOs and visuals are the usual grungy rat holes you?d expect from an abandoned hospital, but they are well done and for the most part appropriate to the location. They are both lists and return items, and each HOs is visited three times. There are few puzzles, most reasonably easy, but skipping one costs you 30 minutes of game time, so that?s just as well!
This is the first of a series of three games each of which is increasingly well done, but it is still an excellent place to start your career with the ?Agency of Anomalies?.

Quick fun, great atmosphere
I finished the game in three and a half hours - if you are good at games, you will too. This is not an easy game though, it requires thought and it rewards you when you get it right. If you enjoy a grim atmosphere with a creepy feel, then you will like this game a lot. The music was one of the things I liked best about the who thing. Fun, engrossing and worth it, I think.

I bought this game a while back but just got aroung to playing it, and I liked it. Even though the graphics are much better in recent times, they are still done really well, the cutscenes are are brief and just okay. I must admit that I was challenged quite a few times as to where to go or what to do, and found myself traveling back and fourth, building to building, room to room searching for something I missed, but that's kind of what I like about the games. There isn't a map for traveling and the hint system is worthless, showing you only what the solution would look like, not where to go, and if you skip a puzzle it will add time to your overall game finish time but since there aren't any achievements who cares? The game was old school but still a good game to play.
