OH MY! Well, I must say, I had absolutely NO idea how OLD this game is! I downloaded the demo of the 3rd installmant of Ravenhearst today and decided that I would like to play the first 2 before purchasing the 3rd! I SO wish I had NOT made that decision! I thought I was really missing out on a "something fabulous" game, but boy was I WRONG! I just went ahead and purchased this game instead of doing the demo first, which is something I NEVER do, and also something I will NEVER do again! I got through 2 rooms and realized this is just the old school basic hidden object game, that is timed, and not the hidden object adventure type game that I am used to! I probably should give it more than 2 stars, because it's my fault for not reading about this game, or checking the age of this game, before purchasing it! Based on the overall ratings that this game has received, it's probably not a horrible game, and was probably an awesome game when it first came out, which was obviously a LONG LONG LONG LONG time ago! ;-# But what I learned about the game, based on my limited playing time, is there are 2 modes of gameplay, both of which are timed. The one I chose was casual, which is usually what I play, and this mode gives you extra time to find the hidden objects and extra hints. The penalty for excessive clicking is you lose several seconds from the time clock. I normally turn the music completely off in most games, but I didn't find the music or sound effects annoying at all, so I left both of them on. The quality of the graphics is poor compared to games today, but they were probably excellent back in the day! ;-) Actually, I honestly do not know exactly when this game came out, it just appears to be extremely outdated. Of course, everything seems to progress and improve so rapidly these days, it could've come out 6 months ago! #HA HA!# All in all, if you're a gamer that likes timed hidden object games, and you don't mind the graphics being somewhat grainy and blurry, this is definitely the game for you. HAPPY GAMING! December 23, 2011
Redundant Find HO's, solve a jigsaw puzzle, read part of a diary, find more HO's, do another jigsaw, read more diary ... gets very old very quickly. There are some entertaining door puzzles but they are scarce. What makes the HO's even more difficult is that the clues are downright horrible, many of the items I've never heard of them before and the ones I have, they give you clues that are to vague.. I spent a half an hour looking for a bazooka when it ended up being a little toy soldier with a bazooka that you couldn't even see. Many of the clues are like that. You can't see enough of the clue to recognize it and many don't resemble the item the clue says. I was supposed to find a native American on one (an Indian right?) there was an Indian right there easy enough but it wouldn't accept, instead it ended up being a toy soldier. wtf? and then a lot of items you click on are the right items but if you don't click on it just right it won't accept it which confuses you more. Also the sound effects are good at first but are very repetitive and will drive you nuts after a while. I gave it 2 stars for the benefit of the doubt, I feel it deserves 1 1/2 stars. August 11, 2013
Monotonous and repetitive room to room search! This was a free game and I can see why. The story line was simple, and all the HOS took place in the same rooms over and over again, looking for the same objects again and again. Very boring, constantly wondering when the real game was going to start, but it never did!!!! I was about to delete it, but I like to finish what I start. Oh well, it was free.... Thanks anyway!

Tedious Repetitive But A Must Play All The Same A purely hidden object game that proved to be tedious and repetitive, but a must play all the same for fans of Ravenhearst games. Play to find out why... January 3, 2013
Too many hidden objects Well, the story behind Ravenhearst is great, but the game itself is too boring. 90% of this game is hidden object scenes and the hint is super stingy. The mini games are too difficult and it costs you lots of hints. This game annoys me and would probably would never replay it again. July 14, 2012
Just a hidden object game. While the graphics weren't too bad, I was expecting a hidden object ADVENTURE game like the other Mystery Case Files. I played Dire Grove and 13th Skull. Both were really great. I really want to play Escape from Ravenhearst, but thought I should play the previous installments first so that I know what is going on with the story. I probably won't even finish this one and just move on to the next because I know that one is an adventure game. This one is boring. December 29, 2011
I Hated It...... I first played MCF's Return to Ravenhearst, which is actually the sequel to this game. After finishing with that one, I bought this game because I wanted to experience the story from the beginning. Big mistake. This game is NOTHING like Return to Ravenhearst. It's not an adventure game. It's strictly a junk pile/cluttered room hidden object game. The graphics are poor and the HOS scenes are so grainy it's extremely difficult to make out many of the objects. And the door lock puzzles were absolutely horrible! Those puzzles were completely incomprehensible to me and there was no instruction or help on what to do. In order to justify the purchase of this game, I quite literally suffered through it, but just barely. November 25, 2011
Not Worth the Eyestrain I downloaded this game to remember it, and to see if I wanted to buy the sequels. Turns out I had forgotten because nature had drawn a merciful veil over the memory of my first playthrough. The H0 scenes are ugly piles of junk, blurry and not very well drawn. The silhouette type puzzles at the end of each chapter had my eyes stinging and watering even more than the H0 scenes. And to cap it off, the story shows a young woman born to be a victim; she's so stupid, I wonder how she made it through teacher's college. November 28, 2011
Warning: ONLY for people who NEVER tire of endless HOS w/ no adventure at all Enough said. Read the review title. I have played gazillions of HOA and HOPA games on Big Fish, and this is the only one that I did not finish because I just couldn't stand it any longer. The music was lovely, and I actually LOVED the creative door-locks - by far my favorite part. The storyline was interesting, but it was taking FOREVER to get anywhere because of the seemly thousands of repetitious HOS, which were revisited and revisited and revisited...and boring the first time around, and cluttered! I played as long as I did (through 10 of the 14 diary entries# only because I wanted to know how the story ended and loved the Door Locks. There is no exploring, no adventure...just mind-numbing HOS...more than I've seen in any game, ever. I actually do like some pure HOS games #e.g. G5's Secret Society, on Android# in moderation. But this was just overload. If you love pure HOS, unendingly, and never tire of them - this is for you. If that's not the case for you and you like them but only in moderation along with adventure, etc. - pass on this one. #Just a note that I read the higher reviews of Return to Ravenhearst, sincerely hoping that it would be seems to be so, but not by much (based on demo). I mention this in the original's review because I wish someone had warned me that it wasn't just this installment of the series that is way too HOS-centric). January 22, 2014
Disappointed It was mostly all HOG. Some puzzles to tell the story, and door puzzles. I thought it was boring. I have been buying these games to get away from HOG. Return to Ravenherarst was the first one I bought. I loved it. I thought this one was the same type of game play, and I wanted to know how the story started. I tried this one first, but didn't realize it was mostly all HOG. My mistake. The HOG scenes were nothing but junk piles, and fuzzy graphics. Very hard to find objects. At least, now I know how it all started. Good thing it was a free game. February 3, 2012
