Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts Collector's Edition
Good game, but short
I really liked Haunted Past. It was a good game with a good storyline. I loved the custom difficulty setting. That is a great idea. It was a little too short, but overall, entertaining.

A pretty good Ghostly game !
On playing the Demo,I knew I had to buy it,as I rarely find great ghost games, It tells you when you have completed a area,which I Like alot ! It would of been intresting for the room to be restored to what it used too look like,that would of been Great !
I used to be a big fan of Princess Isabella's the witch's curse I was hoping it would be simular, and have the Charicters helping you each step of the way, that would be more entertaining ! Also I was not keen on the sound of a window smashing for a hint, why not a Ghostly sound for the hint button ? I must of pressed the Hint button less than every 5 minuites during most of the game. But overal good game, But It could be a lot more intresting with help from Charicters. And I was expecting a big finaly for the Ending, It just seemed a little dull the ending, nothing that would make you feel ready for the next game. But saying all that it was a good game.

This game had great graphics and detail. The clues were challenging but not difficult so that made the game move along well. I just hate it when I'm getting into a game and then I get the "thanks for playing the demo". Sometimes I've had an hour, other times just short. Overall though, this was a good game and I would love to try the full version.

good value CE, lots of fun play!
This is a very good game, love the extra twist to the hidden object scenes. Could have been harder, esp the glyph puzzles which were so simple as to be boring. Not at all scary or creepy, but I liked it anyway. I will buy the sequel.

I didn't think I would like this game when I first started but it grew on me. I like the graphics and the hidden objects in both realms was a neat idea. The only thing I didn't like was that the game was too short. I bought the CE edition and didn't feel I got my monies worth for it. Otherwise, a fun game overall.

Meh, okay, but I wish I hadn't gotten the CE
I got the demo first, which I thought was fun and therefore worth my two credits. I downloaded 3 diff games to try and picked this one. Obviously, the storyline and the visuals sucked me in, they were good. Sadly, the challenge is lacking, in my opinion. There is one HOS per room. I did like that it told me when I was done with a room. That was really helpful. There were less than a handful of puzzles. So many things could have been a puzzle like most games and they weren't. For example, I had to get pipes, but I didn't have to figure out how to place them. It was interesting that I had to figure out what objects where needed where to get the next object. That was interesting. I also liked that you got more than one object per HOS. So, there weren't HOSes for HOSes sake, as it were. I might play it again, someday, but it will be a while. Now I need to go find something else with more puzzles. I'm going to recommend this game, but I mean the basic edition, not the CE.

Very easy game to play
I wasn?t very impressed; this is an OK game but is not the best offering I have seen from Gogii games. On the positive side I loved the choices of gameplay; Casual has sparkles, glints & is so easy that you will not need the strategy guide & Advanced has a 90 second hint recharge & no glints but there is a Custom mode which is excellent. You can set how fast/slow you want the hint & skips to recharge, whether you want in game help; basically set it up to your wish. You can change any of the modes within the game without having to restart.
The hidden object scenes have some very well blended items & are not too easy but there are not many mini puzzles to solve & they are very simple. This is not a game that will challenge the brain cells & it is very linear, there is a little backtracking but not enough to need a map.
The voiceovers, ambient sounds & music are good & the graphics are pretty average; you move between the ?real? world & a ?ghost? world, the ghost world is rather like an overexposed photograph. There are a lot of rooms to explore & Area Cleared will be shown once you have done everything necessary in a room. I did not need to use the built in strategy guide at all.
The bonus game is an entirely different story to the main game & only took me 40 minutes to complete.
If you want an easy game then this is for you but I would not recommend for someone who prefers there H0s with a slice of adventure.

Fun game for beginners
The graphics are pretty good and the story line is okay. But this game is definitely for beginners. There was only one kind of puzzle throughout the whole game and it was extremely simple to solve. If you're a beginner, you'll enjoy this game. If you're an advanced player, don't bother with it.
