The Agency of Anomalies: Mystic Hospital
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!

Challenging and Interresting
Excellent game with great HO's and story line. We enjoy the games that require concentration and going back and forth between scenes. This one moved along very well, but was a little short. We finished it in one 3.5 hour session.

Dark but good!
I liked this game. The storyline is good (experiments gone wrong in a hospital). The graphics are quite clear even if it's a dark game. There is no map, but a lot of going back and forth. The puzzles are not too hard. The hint system is not very useful, so I was happy sometimes to look at the walkthrough. It took me 3 hours to finish, but even if it seems short, there is a lot to do.

One of my favs!
I played this game on BigFish Unlimited. I really enjoyed it. It was nice to play something besides a mom rescuing her kids or husband. It's a little dark, if you like that sort of thing, but not scary. I got stuck a few times, but not for long. Sometimes puzzles were a little vague and the hidden objects had names of things I had never heard of like a "cezve," which is a turkish coffee pot. Nothing wrong with learning new words. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

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.

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.

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?.

A good game
I quite liked this game - music and graphics were very good at setting the mood. I enjoyed the puzzles, the HOS were a little too dark for my liking, but not impossible. The storyline was very good. I would recommend either playing this game in one day or making a map with notes - as if you leave this game for too long its very hard to pick up from where you left off. Overall a good game, not my favourite of the series, but I would still recommend it.
