House of 1000 Doors: Family Secrets Collector's Edition
not bad....not great.
the game is ok, but it's not challenging enough and the morphing items were in your face easy. I won't be purchasing.

Guess it's just not for me.
Tried, but couldn't get the paper in the typewriter. Nothing seemed to work, so I decided not to frustrate myself. There are other games I can play.

Didn't exactly draw me in
I liked the graphics and the sound, except for the people. They were much too wooden. I liked the interactive map, it's a big help.
However, I didn't get the storyline at all. Even now, I'm still asking myself "Why am I supposed to care... and about what, exactly?" I still have absolutely no clue what central parts of the story are about if nothing is actually connected.
All in all, a nice game to play for a few hours, but with very little replay value - and one that I will likely forget very soon.

A Really Great HOG Should Be Playable By Everyone
The graphics look beautiful - albiet the dark, gloomy, scary atmohphere 99% of HOGS are offering these days. Apparently, that's the mandatory atmosphere. and this game delivers! The story line (something horrifying has happened and you are the detective trying to resolve the problem) is in compliance with the mandatory HOG story lines - so again, the game delivers. Unfortunately, what the game does not deliver is the ability for everyone to play. The font size chosen is totally restrictive for folks like me with challenged vision. I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me and my prejudiced point of view, so I asked my roommate who has 20/20 vision. He tried the game out for a few minutes and declared it undesirable because the font was just too small and he was already getting a headache from trying to read such small print.
The sad thing is - there is no reason why the font can't be large enough for folks like me to see it. Too bad, this is the kind of game I actually will spend money on.
Lately, there's been a lot of games with fonts so small they are not readable for folks like me - with challeneged eye site. I'm not blind, I'm just elderly and require glasses. .

The strategy guide does not follow your progress. After every move, it reverts to the index page *3. So you not only have to remember where you were but also the page you were on. Why is this a CE game if this is the case? De;eyed this game after 10 minutes of play. Don't waste your money!

This game is tecnically and visually competent
I have a problem with the story
Developers cannot seem to tell a ghost story without delving into Ouiji boards and tarot cards
Ghosts can be spooky and sad at the same time There is so much POTENTIAL for a great storyline but developers have No Imagination or are just plain lazy and lately, only generate cookie-cutter plots
