Highly recommend Another I'd rate at 4.5, if I could. This game brings something new - in addition to finding various objects to use, they must be hidden as we travel back and forth through the spirit world, to be picked up again later. The emphasis is on finding and using objects within the areas. HO scenes come at a reasonable pace and are clear and fairly easy to solve. There are very few puzzles, and the ones included are quite simple. The story is good and reasonably engaging. Can't comment on the music, but the atmospheric sounds and voices were great - particularly the antagonist's voice. Movement is smooth. Playing in Casual mode, this was very much on the easy side. Total play time (including demo# was a bit over two hours. There is a journal but no map - but a map was probably unnecessary, as the actions were very well laid-out, without a lot of backtracking. One thing I particularly LOVED about the game was that when an area was cleared, it was labeled so at the top of the screen. I'll take that over a map any day. The only thing I'd change would be longer play #possibly the CE version would have been the better choice) - it's a little too short to get the full five stars, On the other hand, I'd rather the game be as cleanly put together as this one was without a ton of filler material to add unnecessary time. Bottom line: the game left me wanting more. I will certainly play any sequels that come out. January 14, 2012
OTHERWORLDLY EXISTENCE SUMMARY: Game took 3 hours to complete on casual mode. Travel back and forth between the dilapidated mansion you inherited and the mansion?s opulent splendor in the realm of the ghosts. Details: ? HOS are plentiful, attractive and fairly easy. ? Puzzles are scarce, in comparison to the HOS and are not too challenging. ? Find and trace glyphs to open new mirror portals between the now and the ghost realm. ? Game is linear, so there?s not much back and forth. Objects needed are nearby. Areas are marked completed when it?s time to move on. ? Found objects in the ghost realm must be cleverly hidden so you can find and use them in the real world. ? Customize your gameplay by adjusting the difficulty of tips, visual cues and hint recharge time. ? No map, but none is needed due to the linearity. ? Diary tells the tale of the family, but you have to find the pages. Miss a page and you miss part of the story. ? Very good graphics, especially in the ghost realm. ? Sounds are realistic. Playing at night in L.A., I had to look out the window to see if there really was a rainstorm. November 14, 2013
Closer to 3.5 - Decent HOG Like I said, I'd rate this closer to a 3.5. It's a very straightforward HOG, for the most part - the twist being you travel through mirrors or other reflective surfaces to hide useful objects in the "ghost realm" that then appear in the house once you travel back through. The storyline was pretty weak - your standard "inherit a house but it's haunted so you have to exorcise the ghost" type thing -- not interesting enough to hold my attention to the details - I played it yesterday and honestly couldn't give you a detailed blow-by-blow of what happened, but the scenes/challenges were interesting enough that I finished the game. If this one comes up on sale, it's good for a rainy afternoon when you've got nothing else to do. August 12, 2012
Fun Game, But A Little Too Short Overall, this was a fun game. The graphics are amazing and the art direction sets a good spooky atmosphere. The storyline itself isn't that original, but he idea of traveling between our world and the Ghost World is a fun twist. The level of challenge is good for an intermediate gamer such as myself, but I imagine advanced gamers would find it too easy. One thing that I really liked about the game was that it was all puzzle solving and hog, there were no mini-games that resulted purely on manual dexterity. My only real complaint with the game is that even as an intermediate gamer, I took less than three hours to complete the whole thing. For that reason alone, I would say wait until this is on special for $2.99 to get it, but for $2.99, it's definitely worth a whirl. March 18, 2012
Well-Crafted Hidden Object Fun There is a lot to like about this game. One example is the overall look of the mansion, which you get to see in both its current dilapidated and previously grand looks. The voice acting is infrequent but well-done, and I enjoyed the background music for the most part. It's always a good start when the game looks and sounds enjoyable. A couple other very nice touches that the veteran game player will appreciate: you are able to select various difficulty settings (not just the game itself, but the hint timer and difficulty of objects as well#, the backstory is collected through journal pages and is deeper and more well done than much of what is out there, and the idea of hiding things in the past to use them in the future is quite novel and very well done in the game. The game moves in a very linear way and tells you when nothing is no longer needed, which is a great way to not spend hours wandering around just for that one lost item. And therein lies the only disappointment for me. Granted, I didn't play the CE, so I can't speak to that, but the game is very short. The searches #even on the difficult level) are often enough but a breeze, there are not very many puzzles in either "world" to slow you down, and you always have a very good idea of what needs to be done next. In addition, not to be a stickler, but considering you can just plop a mirror down in any room to visit that "other side," it rendered the lengths you go to a bit bizarre. Of course, this territory (haunted mansion, speaking to the spirits) has been mined before as well. All of that said, this is a very fun game that looks great, plays in a very straightforward way, and tries to bring something new to the table. You could do far worse than this. January 17, 2012
ho with a twist This is the first game i've played with different worlds sort of speak, i love this game, if you love ho adventure, this ones great in my oppinion, i sure hope they make more like this. i cant wait till the next one comes out already and havn't even finished this one yet. The only one little , just little gripe is the music, not all the music but some of it other than that its a great game and wish it were longer but i wish most hidden object adventure games were long.

Fun Game!! If you are looking for a fun game, with some spooky graphics, this is it! :) I enjoyed playing, but thought it was rather a short game...I still recommend for all you Ghost lovers!!:) February 3, 2012
Good game This is a very well-designed game with a unique concept. You travel to the past through mirrors to search for needed objects, and you hide them where you can find them when you return to the present. The HINT button works well during game play, so you don't need a map, SG, etc. The story is interesting and builds well during the game with a diary. The HOS are the usual, cluttered but OK. The puzzles are fairly easy even though the instructions leave a little to be desired. I found the game to be very fun, and it was a good length. January 31, 2013
enjoyable, not chalenging i agree with others who enjoyed this game. BUT! i consider myself an intermediate player and it took only 2 hours to finish!! nothing was frustrating, just relaxing as i like. glad i got this as a free game from my punch card. i feel cheated as it is because a few others said it took them 4-5 hours and that's what i like.

Fun, but could be better It's actually a nice story line with a good plot, it has room for much improvement though. I did actually want to finish the game- only to wish it was a little longer- with more of a plot line. But overall its good for being the daily deal. I say its a personal choice if you want to buy it or not. I say if you like this mystery HO games, then go for it. July 30, 2013
