Don't play this late at night!
This game had everything I love in a game! The graphics were beautiful, the music fit the game, HO areas had items in the same size perspective, just the right game time length, puzzles were challenging but not too hard and an element of creepiness.
When moving from scene to scene there would sometimes be a figure spying on me among the trees or out a window that actually was creepy.
My only regret is that I didn't spring for the CE version with extra game play.

LONG TERRIFIC GAME WORTH FULL PRICE
Based on entire game. Very, very lengthy. So much to do. You get a map with the journal which will help you remain orientated, because there is a lot of travel. There are spooky cutscenes which you can re-watch after completing the game, provided you find all 42 morphing objects (there is one in every scene). There are 14 runes to find throughout the game; you should them in the cathedral as soon as you find them because you will get something needed to go further in the game.
HOS were typical junk piles with some small objects but not as small as in a lot of other games. Mini-games were varied in type and difficulty. You make potions and perform a interesting rituals to rid the world of the 7 deadly sins. It?s cool when they are defeated. You can rewatch their defeat when you get the cut scene reward. Hints recharge quickly. If stuck outside of the HOS, you can just go back through the rooms and you?ll run into a HOS and see what scenes still need some action and easily figure out what to do. Hints work in and outside of the HOS.
Music: sound anxious; not my cup of tea. Graphics: terrific ? crisp and clear. Animation : also terrific, especially when it contributes to the haunting atmosphere. Ending: beautiful.

I really liked the graphics and the storyline. It was entertaining and a good length. My only complaint is with the tiny tiny size of the objects in the HOGs. It should be possible to make them challenging without making them so small. There were a lot of HOGs and as fun as the story was I dreaded the HOGs. The mini games were not too difficult and the soundtrack was good.

Very good game!
I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. The scenery was "creepy" at first (being in an hospital) but it soon developed into a very engaging story. The HOGs are well done and the puzzles albeit challenging are not difficult. I also enjoyed the music. I recommend this game.

I really enjoyed playing this game. Unlike some games where it seems the developers want to make it near impossible to figure out what to do, this game is more straightforward. The HOS are good, but they do have an anti-random-clicking feature in that the list refills after an item is found. Didn't bother me, but it might some. The production is good (artwork, etc.) except for the old time scary music in the background. I found this to be a relaxing game that I highly recommend.

Sacra Terra: Angelic Night
Another game which I've put in my top 5 favourites!
STORY LINE: A game with a proper storyline and something which combined a bit of being lost in a hospital, a bit of ghostly goings on and adventure. You have special 'runes' to collect and 'baddies' to get rid of throughout the game which I think adds some fun. Nice happy ending too.
GAMEPLAY/GRAPHICS: Gameplay was good. Quick movement between screens and when clicking on items, etc. Graphics I also liked. Not too cartoony and a mixture of light and dark scenes.
MUSIC/VOICEOVERS: Music I always have switched off, but the voiceovers were better than some I've heard. Not overly dramatic or forced. There's not much talking in the game anyway because it's just you alone in the hospital area.
HOS/PUZZLES: HO scenes I really liked in this game. Clear and items were well hidden, but not too hidden that you needed a hint at any time. They were also interactive so some items you had to complete an extra step to get them. Again, I like this added feature as HO scenes can get tedious in time. There's also not too many of them, and they're equally distributed throughout the game. Also another plus in my book! Puzzles however were fairly easy. I didn't use any hints or skips in puzzles and usually completed them quite quickly.
CHALLENGE: There are two modes of difficulty; casual and expert. I played on expert but to be honest, this was quite easy so I dread to think that casual would be like.
WHAT DO YOU GET?: You get your usual notebook and also have a map. The map was good as it let you know exactly where you were and also told you in which location an action was available in case you get stuck on where to go next. There are also beyond objects that you need to collect 42 of, and you get a little bonus at the end if you collect all of them. Then you also get your usual hint and skip buttons if needed.
LENGTH OF GAME: Very good length for a SE game. I finished in just short of 4 hours.
Highly recommended game.

Challenge, Storyline, Graphics - All Good For Me!
The storyline may be a bit jumbled for some, but that really didn't detract from the game-play for me.
Most direction/tasks are pretty clear - you shouldn't be too confused about what to do next, or where to use an object - most things are pretty evident once you've found them.
The hint system will show you which direction to go without depleting itself (sparkles to the left, right, etc) The hint system recharged fairly quickly in casual mode.
The areas to explore are larger than they first appear, with new areas constantly being made available. The main centerpiece (the cathedral) has very little that you can do other than deposit the runes.
The only annoyance was that every time a rune was found, you had to click, click, click. click (etc) to go back to the cathedral. I'm not big on map jumps, but this game needed one!
