White Haven Mysteries Collector's Edition
Don't Buy It
This game was an enormous disappointment. If it had come out in its CE form as a regular game it may have been worth the money, but is much too easy and much too short to be worthy of CE. It does have lovely graphics and a haunting Ring Around the Rosies, but the game play was lacking much. Definitely do not believe the loading blurb. There was nothing scary about this game, except the price.

Not Quite What I Expected( Includes spoilers.)
I played the full collector's edition. This sound effects became annoying after the first five minutes of the demo. Play with the sound on?! Oh yeah for the first five minutes and then you want to remove your ears. The whispers and the repetitive music grr... But back to the game the graphics are not bad at all. The hidden objects scenes are a challenge. What I didn't like was the story. You wake up in an abandoned hospital and find that you are drugged and need to find the antidote. Ok fine. You are also trying to save a little girl you later find out is some kind of split personality of you. As well as some hooded and masked man. Nice issues you've got right? Well you play through the game thinking that you are at least going to save the little girl or yourself and no! The little girl and the masked man are part of you and the little girl tells you as credits roll "This is our body now." So what the heck was I running around for?! I just didn't get this game at all. The graphics were great. I just didn't understand the story or the end at all. And incidentally she uses the same line at the end of the bonus chapter which does nothing to clear up the issues of the first part of the game at all. Bottom line fellow fishies: Don't waste your money. Unless you like disappointment and confusion.

All Hype - No Show
What a disappointment. It started out okay, but fizzled early on. I play a lot of H.O.G.'s during the daytime....leaving my harder games for in the evening. This game promised scary.......nope, just fizzle. A game to pass by.

White Haven is not worth the extra money
This expensive, collector's edition game is way too easy and short. My 7 year old granddaughter finished this game in about 10-12 hours. It is definately NOT worth the extra $7. You collect 5 vials of antidote and the 6th one is alread in the case. She played this for 7 days, for an hour or 2 each day and didn't even need help for any of the puzzles. Very disappointed. I feel like I was cheated. The graphics were nice and that is about it.

Too many HO's,very few puzzles!
I am really sorry I bought this game. The game had to many HO's and not enough puzzles. There are alot of other things wrong with the game,the ending stinks! The bonus content made no sense. The journal was a mess. No help for the few puzzle. All and all this game needs alot of help. From now on,I will play the full demo,with this game maker.

A real bore
This is one of the most boring games I've ever played. Its another woman who lost her memory and is in a broke down house/asylum and a little girl telling her to hide and they will avoid the weird man. This game tells you to turn off all the lights and turn the volume up and get ready for a real spooky time and beware if you get frightened easily and I have no idea why because the bad guy in this just laughs and mumbles a lot over another loud speaker and the graphics are really not that good so if anything scary is happening, I was missing it.
Like for instance, *SPOILER*, bats fly out at you in one scene but the bats are so blurry, I wouldn't have even known they were bats if I wasn't in a "spooky" house. The cursor was slow and it didn't fill my whole screen not to mention the little girl who is helping you looks really weird like her face isn't proportioned correctly or something because she looks strange, even her haircut isn't right like they didn't finish her.
Overall, after playing the demo, I have decided this game just isn't for me. The acting is so bad its almost comical and the more games that come out by this developer the more I realize how much I dislike them. This game is almost as if this developer decided, "hey spooky games are in, lets throw a bunch of stuff that is deemed "scary" into a house, have weird sound effects n a bad guy with bad voice acting and of course people will buy it" Id rather mow my lawn in 120 degree heat than play this game & the fact this is a CE is laughable. I wouldn't even buy this as a daily deal. Amazing what people try to make money on.
The only reason I am not giving this 1 star is because I've actually bought a game worse than this. Amazingly enough.

I read the reviews of this game before I downloaded it but decided to give it a try for an hour anyway. Unfortunately the poor reviews are correct. The graphics weren't really all that fantastic and I got the impression this game was rushed to production forfeiting quality. The storyline was boring and almost predictable. The HOS were simple and frankly a couple were just irritating. I would rather do without the fancy pop-up windows in exchange for a smoother, more interesting storyline and scenery. It just seems clunky and definitely not one of the better products the developer has released. This is one of the few times I will not be purchasing the CE.
