White Haven Mysteries
Good game shame about the ending...
Excellent game to start with, really let down by it's abrupt ending- I wish I hadn't wasted a game credit on it.

Promised a lot - but didn't deliver!
This game really tends to suck you in. The graphics and sound effects are great, HO scenes were interesting - but fairly easy and the storyline is creepy. Hints recharge quickly and there is interesting info in your journal.
But although the story starts well (the suggestion to play in the dark is unnecessary hype) after a while it peeters out. The puzzles aren't very difficult and the story simply dwindles into just moving around the garden. The ending is a real disappointment - lasts around 3 seconds - and leaves you completely confused!!! Such a let down!!!

The storyline was better than the game itself. I played on casual mode - you have two choices. The hidden object scenes have sparkles around them. The cursor doesn't change into a hand, magnifier, etc., for things lying around. Thus, you really need to have a clickfest to see what you need. Once you do have what you need, the game is very linear. The music and atmosphere is creepy which I love. There is a journal which is basically useless as it just gives little bits of history about the doctor and the task you are supposed to be doing. I will not be purchasing this game.

HOS were good. Puzzles were few and far between. I enjoyed the visuals. I would like to have seen more puzzles. Hint system was great and I especially liked when it told me an area was cleared. However, the ending was abrupt and unclear. Story was unclear the whole time. I recommend buying it as a game on sale.

As usual I made the mistake of buying this, I played for the free hour and it took me less than an hour to finish it. I am just glad I got it on sale.

I would give this a 5 out of 10
the graphics were great, but did not really appeal to me, a little disappointed to be frank.

I was just getting into the game and it was over.....too short. Also on some of the Mini puzzles there were no instruction, maybe I'm just not smart, but I need a little instruction as to what to do.......

didn't blow my hair back
i was looking forward to the game when i tried the collections edition. thought there was more but disappointed there wasn't much more. Graphics and sound are fine but somehow got tired of the storyline. didn't do much for me this time.

Tests Your Patience
This game is full of HO's and they are not interactive and each one has 15 items to find. Grrrr
-No map, and it could certainly use one.
-The journal doesn't put the last read article first when you reopen it. I finally stopped looking at it.
-Thank goodness the hint system is good in casual mode since you will use it a lot.
-The spooky warning at the beginning of the game is unwarranted.
Its just a fair game. I would change my rating if the HO's had been better.

Nice game but it too mysterious
I really don't know what the storyline was. The Hidden Objects were interesting, a nice mixture of easy and hard, but I really couldn't get the connections and that sorta killed for me; reading the reviews I seem to be alone on this so perhaps I just missed it. I also didn't care for the loop of music, I think that needs to be a little longer and better. A nice spooky game though I think the storyline should be a little clearer.
