Haunted Manor: Queen of Death
Love the game, it was a challange, a little dark when trying to find things. Game going great, and then I get to the 3rd chapter and I HAVE TO START OVER, it will NOT let me get the corkscrew after I got the scorpion tail. Real disappointed in this. But the game overal was a challange and fun.

An easy way to pass 30 minutes
The game was ok. What I liked most about it was the interactive puzzles. However, the game wasn't very challenging.

haunted manor: queen of death
bought this game after reading good reviews but was disappointed -graphics were okay, story okay, instructions for puzzles not very clear and a lot of going backwards and forwards - got a bit of fed up halfway through the game.

If you hate backtracking, avoid this game. The last segement is entirely based on backtracking to every HOS that you've played throughout the game, and this game is chock full of them!
The basic story is okay. It's good for a player who likes a little morbid fancy but doesn't want anything to gorey. I prefer a little more horror in dark HOG games, but this one finds a happy medium between too much and too little. The puzzles are very simple--too simple for an experienced player. For those who like more variety in gameplay, you may find this title wanting. There are puzzles, and then there's HOS. The latter is really abundant, and the former could stand to appear more in between the frequent HOS.
Overall, this game is good for a beginner or someone who wants a tame horror game. If you're thinking of buying it, I recommend waiting until it's on sale. I did, and I'm really glad that I didn't pay full price for this.

Could be better
This game is good, not the best though.
-Storyline was not the best. I found it odd and depressing to have a child saving souls of her family and witnessing her family's death (mother, father, nanny, and somewhat evil sister all died right in front of her).
-Graphics are good, but weren't excellent. They werent as "sharp" as other games. No speaking, you have to read the dialogue which is one thing I didn't like. It made it boring.
-HOS were easy; not cluttered. Puzzles were also very easy, hardly challenging.
-No map; you had to keep going back and forth which became annoying after awhile.
-Hint button refills very slowly. I had to use it to know where to go next. It doesnt use your hint when you use to go from one area to another, but hint is used and has to refill when you are in the same room a task needs to be done. One thing I did notice was most of the time the hint would direct you using arrows, but other times instead of arrows, at the top of screen it tells you that you need to go somewhere else, but wont tell where.
-Skip button fills up pretty quickly, although you dont need the skip because the puzzles were very easy.
I recommend this game to those who like easy HOS and easy puzzles. If you want more of a challenge, go for something else.

I tend to have a brain that forgets things quite quickly, so if your good a remebering stuff you will probably enjoy this game. I liked the hidden object and puzzled element, but I do struggle to keep track of where I need to go next. No problem if you use the hint button (and it recharges quickly), so I was enjoying the game. But after a while, the hint would just say 'you need to look somewhere else'. I know that. Thats why I used the hint! After wasting a long time going from one place to another, I gave up and deleted the game without completing it.

Lots of running around...
This was an interesting game, but there wasn't a whole lot of interaction with other characters, and it really could've used a location map. There was a lot of running from one location to another, back and forth, and I find that a bit boring and frustrating. A map would've helped a LOT. However, the HO scenes were challenging, puzzles were good, graphics were nice. Just a bit long and tedious without a mapping feature...

Lengthy and Repetitive
The graphics on this game are incredible, however I found it to be repetitive. The music is irritating and is on a continuous loop. You have to go back and forth multiple times between scenes just to find something. I found it took longer to move to the right location than it did to find what I was looking for in that location. The storyline premise is kind of stupid. I found the look of the demon to be laughable. This game killed some time and would be great for first time players of this type, but I got bored after awhile.

Art style in this game is good, story is interesting but the puzzles become a minus after the trial. The music and atmosphere are wonderfuly creepy but the tension wears off before the middle of the game and the puzzles turn from clever to irritating. As soon as you think your (finally!) at the end you learn you have to go through 12 more HOS, ARGH!!!! All this back and forth traveling starts to wear on your nerves as well. The SE version is best if you want to give it a try.

Definately a beginner level game. Only one difficulty level, and that is very easy. Not only sparkles, but the bright flash of light that shows you the next step, often before you even have a chance to think about it, or try any other path. Boring. Graphics good. Would recommend for beginner or someone who just wants to run through a game without thinking. Some people like to play that way sometimes.
