Awful! I thought this was just an adventure game like the other MCF games but this is just a Hidden Object Game. I don't like hidden object games at all, but when they are part of a bigger game where the Hidden Object Games are part of then i don't matter. This game is awful if you don't like HOG.

Will not play on Mavericks 10.9.2 Would like to play this game, but it won't play on my system. March 12, 2014
Straight Hidden Object - You already know the story The "story" gets revealed through diary pages that you find, I think were 18 or 20 of them, but after reading the 2nd entry, you know the story. Seriously. You've read this and seen it a hundred times already. There are no twists. There are no surprises. Everything happens exactly the way you expect it to. Sound: There's an annoying soundtrack that keeps playing a 'ghost' voice saying different things. Any 'creepiness' this may have had is long gone after about the 50th time you hear them, which isn't very far into the game. The HO scenes: This is the game. All of it, really (except for the 'puzzles' I'll get to in a bit). You only get five hints to use across all the scenes in a chapter, so you have to use them carefully, and you need to find all but three items - there are eight to find in each scene. So if a chapter has seven rooms, that would be 56 objects and you'd need to find 53 of them with only five hints. The scenes are all junkpiles, with about 80% of the junk being recycled from room to room - so you'll see the same banana, and honey dipper, and skull, etc... And you'll keep going back to the same scenes over and over and over again. The 'trick' to finding the objects is to let your eyes go in and out of focus and then keep focusing deeper and narrower into the scene until you're at the right 'level' to see the items. From a purely technical standpoint that's pretty cool. From a practical standpoint, if you only think that sounds like a recipe for eyestrain you have no idea... I can't remember how many times I had to stop playing because my eyes hurt. This has never happened to me in any other HO/HOPA game. The 'puzzles' are just Rube Goldbergesque machines. Keep clicking on everything on the screen until stuff happens. There are no instructions. Some of them make no sense even after you finish them. I got the game because I wanted the 'backstory' to the Ravenhearst games (The other two having better reviews) and because I thought it would be nice to play the whole trilogy - I'm a sucker for things like that. Don't bother - as I said at the top, you already know the story. All of it. I suppose if it was the last day of the month and you needed one more game to fill your punchcard and this was the Daily Deal, it might be worth it - but I'd take a good hard look at the Weekly Deal first: That Fish Farming Salon Road game might be a lot less frustrating.

For the Beginner I recently purchased this game because I was intrigued by the description of Escape from Ravenhearst and thought I'd better start with the first one so I would know the storyline. My last MCF game was Dire Grove - a lot of fun to play. But I was bored to tears by this one; I guess I'm now used to a much more complicated game. I'm not sure about the storyline - many reviewers think it's good but I haven't the desire to play 'til the end to find out. I should have played the free game first before purchasing; live and learn! August 1, 2012
This game was awful! I have to agree with my fellow gamers who did not like this one. Too many repeat HO games with horrible graphics. I guess I have been spoiled with the new adventure/HO games out now, because this one was a snooze.. July 10, 2012
This Mystery Shall Remain Unsolved The Mystery Case Files series has always been a mixture of good and bad; this was one of the bad ones. Good Parts: Great graphics Nice sound effects/music. 2 modes; normal and relaxed. OK Parts: Limited hints; but 6 were available, doubling the last game. Bad Parts: HOS were too hard, had to use my hints on all of them. The door puzzles; they were way too hard, even when I used the clues and calling for back-up took away all my hints. Storyline is nothing special. It's not one that kept me going like Huntsville or Prime Suspects. I was looking forward to playing a game that was pure Hidden Object, but I will be going back to my other games. This is a no go. November 6, 2012
Not my favorite!! I found this game very irritating. Too repetitive. I didn't bother to finish it. The big challenge seemed to be putting together puzzle pieces to form a page of a diary. This is just a basic hidden object game. May 26, 2012
Absolutely awful. I thought the storyline was quite interesting and was quite curious about what had happened to Emma, however, being the type of game it was ruined the whole experience. Obviously the point of a Hidden Object games is to find things amongst a clutter, but this game simply dumped millions of items in a heap. Would not recommend. May 6, 2012
listen to the reviews Seriously, this game stinks out loud. The preview was ok, but when that ends you can't advance unless you purchase. Once you do that, it's an entirely different game...and yes,. it is just a HOG full of junk piles. I bought on the cyber day special, and still wish I had saved my money. Do Not Buy this game if you are expecting it to be ANYTHING like the others..they aren't. Major disappointment. Shame on you MCF folks November 26, 2012
Boring I tried to play this game but it's so boring. I wish that I never would have bought it. Mystery Case Files Return to Raven Hearst is a whole lot better. Don't waste your money it's not worth it. November 5, 2014
