Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts
Absolutely loved it!
Really enjoyed playing this game and found the switching over to the other "realm" really unique. The graphics and gameplay are perfect, puzzles not too difficult. A great game all round. The CE version has quite a lot more content and is well worth buying.

Good, but it took me only 3 hours total!!!
This was good and graphically it reminded me of the first ?Princess Isabella,? but it just didn?t last that long. It was over fairly quickly even for a standard edition game. It did make me wish that I had gotten the Collector?s Edition when it was deeply discounted. The graphics were really good. There were some clever things like hiding objects in the ghost realm and using them in the real world. That made it interesting. But it was disappointing that you really didn?t get a chance to spend that much time in each area. The ghost realm was beautiful and lush while the present day was dark and decayed. Similar to ?Princess Isabella.? But it all just went by so fast. The overall game mechanics and concept had potential, but they just didn?t expand on it enough. I don?t think you should have to buy the Collector?s Edition to get the developer?s full vision for the game. The Standard Edition should be a finished concept. And I?m not suggesting that this game isn?t finished, but I used a free game coupon. I would have been upset had I paid $6.99 for only 3 hours!!! Even the average time management game lasts longer. However, it was still worth playing. I did really like it. But it left me wanting A LOT more!!!! So, I wish I could write something more thoughtful and had more to say, but there?s just not a whole lot of game to play in the Standard Edition.

Excellent Hidden Object Game
I loved this game, I thought the graphics were fantastic, the storyline was interesting and kept me wanting more.
I have definately put this on my to buy list.
I found the game to be not too challenging, but challenging enough and if I got stuck the hint button helped. It recharged fairly quickly.

An Enjoyable Good Time
Played the whole game before submitting my review. The art and visual was very well done. Not a lot of actual hos but I thoroughly enjoyed jumping between the ghost realm and the actual "time". Deciphering the glyphs were not hard at all just a matter of remembering doing those as a kid. The object hiding between the two realms was also interesting and made a change of pace from other games. The hos were not difficult and the items were readily identifiable. I also like the "Area Cleared" announcements as it saves time from going back to places that you do not have to especially since there was no map to follow. The hint button filled quickly on the casual game and rarely had to use it. It was also helpful to be able to use it when I lost what I was supposed to be doing which happened a couple of times when I got off the computer and then went back to the game. It was not one of the more difficult games but I thoroughly enjoyed playing it. The music/sounds did get annoying once in a while but I did have the sound turned down to low. All in all, a game that was not difficult, was not boring, had a great story line and had some twists that kept it interesting,

I really liked this game,very different.
The hint system was excellent. Not too much wandering around.
The music and graphics were good too.

In the game, you have to find objects, and you end up going from room to room, including the servants room, and the gentry, (owner), sometimes at the end of a HOS, you are given objects, which you may have to hide, you use this to complete an area, I loved the game, I loved how it went from the past, to the present, the picture kind of goes double, and the room changes its look completely, one ghost, doesn't want you to succeed, and causes you problems

A Creepy Trip into the Ghost Realm
This is a fascinating game. You receive a letter from your dead father's lawyer about the house you inherit. You arrive and must solve not only the question of your father's guilt or innocence but what happened to your mother. Free the ghosts that are trapped by an evil spirit by traveling through mirrors to the ghost realm. I really enjoyed this game. The interaction, the puzzles were all very appropriate for the scenes.

I really, really enjoyed this game.
The theme is used brilliantly. Being able to teleport from past to present, and the whole thing involved with that is just great
Absolutely loved the storyline and great voice-overs were included
Pretty good graphics
The game was actually fun to play
Hint and "Solve" buttons recharged quickly and were very helpful
Loved the Hidden Object Scenes. The objects were a mix of easy to find and challenging.
The puzzles. Yes, I know, you're probably sick of me saying this but some of them were excellent, but others were just poor.
At times I had no idea what to do next, so I was waiting for the hint to recharge.
The characters should've been more realistic. I was very aware of the fact I was playing a game #if you know what I mean#
I haven't given a game a perfect rating for a while #I go by number of games, not dates as I review games very frequently# but this game is very deserving of a 5 star rating. Most definitely recommended.

Short, but worth the trip
You inherit a house, but there are a lot of restless spirits hanging out who need some help to move on. Good VOS. Nice, eerie music. Seek and find and non-interactive HOS. Sepia colors are easy on the eyes. Area cleared notice. Not quite 4 hours, but very enjoyable.
