Among the best MCF games Although this is an older game the graphics looked fine on my machine. The music/sound effects are perfectly matched to the theme and create an ominous atmosphere. Gameplay consists of HOS and puzzles. It's refreshing to play a HOP game for once instead of a's just pure fun with no running around performing silly tasks in order to move on. The HOS each take place in a room of the house and are filled with items whose juxtaposition creates an almost surreal picture that fits the theme of the game well. The puzzles are elaborate and fun to do. Interspersed between HOS and puzzles you get pieces of a diary. As you read them a tragic story of love gone wrong unfolds. This story is carried on in later installments of the MCF series and it's interesting to see how the Ravenhearst tale got started. Overall, this is a great game that has stood the test of time well. I think it's among the best of the MCF games. June 27, 2014
Emma Ravenhearst's Spirit...... I wasn't sure what to expect from this game. I loved it!!! This for me was my favorite Mystery Case File game. I understood and enjoyed the puzzles in this game more so than other Mystery Case games. I just had to click around and I somehow I had solved the puzzles. I did skip three of them which cost me all of my hints and five minutes. It was okay though because the scenes are quite clear. The graphics are nice. The music was nice and the sound effects were spooky. It's perfect for Halloween. There are no voice-overs which wasn't a problem. You follow the story by reading Emma's diary pages as you find them. The scenes and objects to find are often repeated but the whole game made sense to me. The game was long enough for me. It helped that I took my time which extended the game. At times, I ran out of time and had to repeat the scene but didn't have to do everything all over again. All in all, nice game and I will play it again. This is all hidden object with one puzzle per scene. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed it. Happy gaming!!!! February 13, 2014
HINT - FIND THE KEYS I've forgotten how many times I've played Ravenhearst. This is the first game and is tied up with the Charles and Emma. Return to Ravenhearst is tied up with their two children and the nanny. Escape from Ravenhearst is tied up with Charles' childhood. So all three stories link together. This game is mainly hidden objects, puzzles and with a few mini-games. The HOGs can be challenging because they can be hard to see and you are on a timer. Don't be discouraged though because the game is such a lot of fun. The mini games and puzzles are fun too. The graphics are now a bit dated but it is an old game. However, the music and ambience are just brilliant which makes up for this. Its quite a long and challenging game so get comfortable. Definitely recommended. When you finish, you can then start on Return to Ravenhearst and then Escape from Ravenhearst. See you in 6 months! January 15, 2014
My first Game!! Not for those who like "Easy" I am amazed at the negative reviews for this- it's really a great HOG that yes, has older graphics than say: Fate's Carnival (latest in the installments)...But as a beginner way back this was very challenging ( to the point of hair-pulling )- The storyline has been repeated in SO many games thereafter but ....Years ago, I just had to rescue Emma no matter what (oh, how many hours I spent on mind-raking puzzles!) LOL! This got me started with BF in the first place.Great, memorable game- Luv it!!!! December 11, 2013
Fun Game! I thought this game was interesting and challenging without being too difficult! It kept me playing!!! December 24, 2011
Loved almost everything about it! Although the hidden object scenes are mostly junkpiles and some for me were difficult to see (the green on green background in the garden), the game more than makes up for it by its excellent storyline and puzzles. For each location, there is a jigsaw and door-lock puzzle so those who like jigsaws like myself will find them in abundance here. The story is dark and disturbing and as the story unfolds, you will put together a jigsaw picture that corresponds to that particular day in Emma's diary. You'll also hear whisperings scattered throughout the game to make it more realistic. And the door puzzles are of the most unusual kind with funny animations included which have nothing to do with solving the puzzle but are there to lighten your mood and make you smile. Even though there are no instructions for the puzzles, you can basically just click around on everything and things will fall into place and you will notice a pattern form as to what to do. When I first played Ravenhearst, I just kept clicking around and the locks would open on some of them without me knowing how I did it. Upon later plays, I saw the pattern and was able to solve them the "right" way. I never needed to consult a walkthrough or the forums. Finding the skeleton keys at the end was thrilling as it was timed, so try to find them when you're at those locations earlier in the game so you'll remember where you've seen then and you won't get too stressed later. A tip for when you're finding the keys during the timed portion: write down the rooms where you pick them up from so you don't waste time going back there looking for a key that you've already retrieved from that room. There are many rooms and because of how you access those rooms, you may forget that you've already visited that one when looking for the keys. So if you love finding hidden objects and doing jigsaw puzzles, you'll like Ravenhearst. I played this one after failing miserably the first time with the puzzles in Madame Fate. The door-lock puzzles in Ravenhearst got my confidence back in that they were challenging but not ridiculously hard like in Madame Fate. I like these better. September 23, 2012
One of the best games I own I loved this game! It had a great storyline, great music, and a great storyline. I know that it is almost all HOG, but sometimes we all just need a simple game, right? This was the very first HOG I ever bought, back in 2008, I think, and I am just now reviewing a lot of my old games. It isn't hard to figure out what to do, like some games, and the puzzle are EXECELLENT! You should really play this game! June 25, 2012
Hidden objects and psychopaths... what's not to love? This is an excellent hidden object game, it is very heavy on the hidden object side- so be warned. It also has a strong and exciting storyline (told through the medium of diary entries which are assembled like a torn paper jigsaw puzzles at the end of each chapter). There are also some truly unique and inspired puzzles which are bonkers, yet brilliant and SO satisfying to complete! This is the first game in the 'Ravenhearst' series and is just lovely! Graphics are a bit old/grainy but not too bad. Give it a trial! December 1, 2011
