Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts
The movement was slow and jerky. The visuals were dark and the voice acting was too dramatized. I played just short of my free hour and delete the game

I didn't like that it didn't show what to click on or if you could go in a direction. didn't give much "hint" with the mouse as to what todo when you clicked on and item.

This is one of the WORST games I have ever played. I didn't have it on my wish list but got it last minute and Im kicking myself for even thinking this would be a good game. I can't believe this has so many good reviews. Lets start with the positive, I'll try hard to find it...the ghost realm was interesting. The going back and forth between worlds and hiding things was good. I like doing stuff like that, reminded me of mystery of mortlake mansion but without the cartoon graphics. Thats why I was somewhat interested in this game to begin with. So did not equal out later on.
Cons: With all the options they give you in the menu why is brightness not a factor? the ghost realm scenes were bright n lovely, able to see everything but the main scenes in the house were awful. Half the time I felt like I was playing a game in one color, blue. It had a blue gray hue the whole time and I couldn't see the objects and if it hadn't been for the magnifying glass in advanced mode, I never would have seen what I was supposed to.
-This game is too short and too easy even on advanced mode. This game was so boring that i played it for an hour a couple days in a row which totalled out to a 3 hour game give or take. That is NOT a good value especially since this was originally a CE game.
-The plot was all over the place. Half the time I had no idea what was going on and why this lady was even there let alone who the mirror people were. The tasks were mundane. I don't recall seeing any mini games, it was just find this, put it there in ghost realm, find it in reality. It became very repetitive throughout the game especially because the rooms all are the same color and look alike. Id come back the next day and think...didnt I do this yesterday?
-It had an ending although Im not sure what happened but it set it up for a sequel. I really hope this developer does something unique and special for the 2nd one because right now Im laughing they would even create another one.
-Also, the game was jerky. Even when I turned off the optimizer in the options menu, it was jerky. So the game was jerky, blurry, dark, boring, repetitive and was a ghost theme so way too overdone in my opinion. I do NOT recommend this game to anyone. Its a rip off and I can't believe it has 4 star review. Really?
