Haunted Halls: Fears from Childhood
Good game, but rather easy to beat.
I purchased this game and its sister game, Green Hills Sanitarium based on the reviews they both recieved. I played Green Hills first, and I really enjoyed it. I liked the story line and the puzzles. It took me a couple of days to complete. So I was pretty excited to play this sequal, but Im kind of dissapointed. It only took me a couple of hours to complete. The storyline is ok, but the puzzles are not very challenging at all. I would reccomend Green Hills Sanitarium over Fears from Childhood.

I truly enjoyed playing this game. My only complaint was that i finished it very quickly.
The game play was very straight forward. It was neither to easy nor too hard.
The graphics were great, voice overs were excellent. The mini-games/puzzles were for the most part, not overly complicated. The ending could of been better but I only bought the normal edition vs. the collectors edition. Maybe with the etra game play it ends a bit better.
But all in all I'd say this game rocks. Easy enough for beginners. Give it a try!

Very fun, kind of creepy hidden object game
I had alot of fun playing this game. It is the follow up to the green Hills Sanitarium game. The scenery is very nice and the story line is good. The hidden object scenes are a little repetitive but all in all a good game.

Most of the HOS were good, not just too dark to see like some games, and the play was broken up into 'chapters' of sorts. Not too difficult to stay with the action and only one 'scene' had me positively puzzled for a long time.

Dark, Disturbing, and Difficult
This is one of those games you'll want to play late at night in a dark room...very creepy and potentially disturbing subject matter (which I adore). I felt there was a lot of traveling back and forth between scenes, but the graphics were clear and I didn't terribly mind the journey. It was, in my own experience, often times difficult to figure out the next step and I found myself relying on the hint button a bit more than usual. All in all, i would say it's a "don't miss", if you enjoy the darker games.

I thought this game was fun to play even though it was predictable. There is some really funny humor interjected here and there. The games were either easy or challenging. Overall I thought the graphics were great except for some of the HO scenes. I didn't think the last scenerio lasted long enough, but was a good ending.

Not bad, enjoyable
It starts out challenging, the last 2 or 3 children (it was
the one after the monster under child's bed) that it
was no longer a challenge and got easy.
I did enjoy it, but I felt the first was more scary and
didn't lose momentum.

Lots of fun, nicely done story and challenges
Good game, good successor to the last, well worth the time and money - definitely recommended.

Darkly Fun Hidden Object Game
Storyline, graphics and sound were great. Wish the chapters preceeding the first had been as long and challenging. Seemed that each progressive chapter was easier, more predictable and required fewer tasks to complete.

I enjoyed it!
I enjoyed this Haunted Halls game nearly as much as the first one. The graphics were good and the puzzles were challenging but not frustrating. I liked that the searches and puzzles were grouped and for the most part you didn't have to backtrack all over the entire game to complete a portion of the game. Looking forward to the creators' next game.
