Bad, bad game, even for a freebie This was a freebie from BF, and I thank them for their generosity. Having said that, I have to review this game fairly, as if I had paid for it. Had I paid for it, I would have been really mad. First, it's nothing more than a series of HOS and mini-games. The story is paltry. Second, the bad spelling is just unprofessional. Gramaphone? Monocule? (Yes, there is such a thing, but in this case they meant monocle.) And third, my pet peeve, is mislabeling of objects. I expected to see foreign names in the credits, but no, it was developed by Big Fish studios, right in our beloved Seattle. I hope Big Fish has hired better proofreaders since then. I do know they've come out with much better games. March 26, 2013
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
Bad Start of a Great There must be something about this game I'm missing; contrary to almost everyone else who has reviewed this game, I did not enjoy this game AT ALL. I thought the graphics were some of the worst I'd ever seen in a game. It was just too dark and it looked like an antiques shop had regurgitated all over each scene. The plot (what there was of it) was uninteresting. And the puzzles that had to be solved to access each room were more aggravating than challenging. Needless to say, I didn't even finish the trial. I usually agree with most of my fellow users; in this case, we are on opposite poles. For those who haven't played the game, I say play it and decide for yourself. June 13, 2012
Waste of money I found this game to be tedious, hard on the eyes and downright boring. I thought it was adventure/hog, but it turned out to be all hog with a few dreary puzzles thrown in. Not my cup of tea at all. Is there any way I can get a credit for this awful game? December 5, 2011
RUBBISH this is just a hidden object game, with no adventure!!!! I played it for all of 8 mins before I deleted it!!!!! August 22, 2012
The boring HOG... I'm a fan of MCFgames. They are awesome. But this game, got my hopes down. It was just full of HO tasks and no puzzles except for those door unlocking puzzles. May 30, 2012
Yes, it is bad It is a game for amateur beginners. Amateur beginner game designer that is. Lazy design, mediocre story, same scenes over and over. No collect this or that to move on just click click click. Door puzzles without hint or much relevance; come to think of it nothing had much relevance to either to the story line or to each other. Looks like like a weekend hobby project of a not too imaginative programmer. November 22, 2012
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.
