Midnight Mysteries 3: Devil on the Mississippi
This game kept me hopping the whole time. The graphics are amazing. The interactiveness of the puzzles had me on my toes. I hate to hit the "skip" button, but I have to admit I did once. It would have been nice to get an explanation of how the puzzles were to be worked out, but with a little bit of thinking, they turned out just fine. My heart did a "whoa!" a few times when "things" jumped out of the screen at me. I really liked that. I would highly recommend this game to everyone!

I loved this game!! Grapics clear, not to dark. HO clear & not to small.No map & you do move around a bit, if your stuck the hint button will show which direction to go with arrows. The puzzles were different then any I have played, challenging, but not super hard. Hints recovers quickly. If you find 70 of an object, you get to play a bonus type of game.This game really holds your interest. The story line is almost believeable.

10 out of 10
This game is amazing!! The graphics, game play, storyline, they nailed it. The ambiance alone, is enough to keep you playing.
This game is in my top 5. Did I mention Spooky as well?..Game on...

Love this game!
Beautiful artwork, nice background sound and music, great blend of HO's and puzzles and interesting storyline... what's not to love!!! And with the achievements, it has replay value!
My only regret... I didn't buy the CE!!!

A Devilish Pleasure
This game was a pleasure to play! The puzzles are challenging enough to keep you trying -- truly works your mind; the story line was great, the hidden objects adequate the atmosphere and graphics were awesome.
I highly recommend the game, as I do all the other Midnight Mysteries. The series gets better with each game.

"VERY COOL GAME"
This game is great! I was not dissapointed at all, well other than the plot being a little out of my league. But on a good note, I actually learned a few things from this game :)
Make sure you play with all the sounds cranked!! and the lights off!!! Enjoy everyone!!!!

One Of The Best
BASED ON DEMO
I do love this game. It is much more exciting and dramatic than the 2 previous games, right from the first few moments. The intro will make you jump and flinch, and it sets the scene for all the cut scenes that will do the same.
In keeping with the framework of the series, Mark Twain?s ghost (think, Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer) visits you and asks you to help him find a solution to the ancient evils he unwittingly loosed on the world, after publishing a work proving Marlow was ?William Shakespeare?. It involves time travelling to Twain?s era, then on to Shakespeare?s time, all on the mysterious ghostly river boat, ?Pennsylvania?.
SIGHTS & SOUNDS
This series has a signature style to its graphics, and in this game, it works brilliantly. With the greater intensity and drama in this game, the colours ? black, ectoplasmic green and ghostly blue mostly ? suit the mood perfectly. Special effects, including some very dramatic and sometimes downright scary cut scenes, are excellent.
The series also has a signature music score, which is again applied here, and is never overdone. There are no voiceovers, but it?s hard to really notice that. And the ambient sounds are a delight.
I love the first scene in all these games ? you are in your office (which doesn?t change from game to game), and you receive an unexpected ghostly visitor. This same scene acts as both introduction and tutorial, and it?s the best I?ve ever seen of attempts to do this.
This is nicely balanced game, with a good measure of adventure, wrapped around 8 HOPs and a bit more of mini-games. HOPs are standard interactive lists with a twist, some objects are listed as if they were crossword clues. For instance, honey may be listed as: ?bears love this?. Some, but not all, of the HOPs are visited twice. Without using hint, you can bring up a silhouette of the item you want. Very helpful. Easy but original puzzles.
There is a good directional hint system, taking you all the way to the correct place, and a diary that is only good at summarising. The objectives list is a little more use. But there is little need, really, because most actions follow logically. More so than in the previous games. So it is not a very hard game, and it is also not very long. The game has a timer and I took 3hrs 30mins, which is pretty quick for me.
This is not a CE, but you could be forgiven for thinking it was. There are two collectibles, ravens provide extra hints, and clovers, which are numerous (about 100 I think), and you need 70 of them to open up the unlimited HOP games. These are scenes in which you must find ALL the hidden objects (about twice as many as you get in the game).
They are also both an achievement to collect, along with a dozen or so of other achievements. Many of them are quite hard.
It may not be as flashy as some of the newer games are, but it is a dramatic, exciting, and in-your-face thriller, that looks darn good and hooks you in from the opening scenes. It still rates a huge 5 from me.
