Mystery Case Files: Escape from Ravenhearst
hated this version
this game needs to go back to the drawing board. loved the first two in the series esp. the second one but this one is really bad. sorry-please try again!

I had gamers rage pretty much from the get go. I enjoy a good puzzle but these were darn near impossible. I stopped several times and then used the strategy guide just to get thru it and see how it all ended. I love the MCF files series, especially the other Ravenhurst installments because the puzzles are challenging. These were infuriating.

Worst Game ever
I love the Ravenhearst games and was so excited when I heard that the final one finally came out. I was disappointed to find out that this game was horrible! The game is EXTREMELY hard! I had to keep exiting the game and checking the walk through, which I rarely have to do! Besides it being difficult to figure out, there are scenes which I never wanted to see or do... popping pimples off of a wooden mannequin is one of them. I just can't wait until I finish this game! I recommend Every other Mystery Case file games, but not this one. Save your money, you are not missing out on anything!

I really liked the MCF series....
except this one. And I bought it without reading the reviews. My big bad! The 'morphing' objects are just too, too simple. Just watch each spot until you see movement. I like HO games because I like looking for HO's! Please leave them in.
The puzzles got just too esoteric, to the point I was writing down the walkthrough and going back to the game and still could'nt solve them. It just became a great big chore. No fun at all. And the story like is just kinda...yucky.

What a drag!
I was looking forward to the next Ravenhearst game. This is without a doubt the worst. Very distasteful. I enjoy a little blood and gore but really? The morphing was too slow. The games were much too complicated even with the strategy guide's assistance. I forced myself to finish. If this the last in the series, it's a disappointing end.

Disappointing at best
This was such a disappointment after playing all of the previous MCF games. Utterly ruined the Ravenhearst story. The puzzles were illogical at best, downright idiotic at worst. I try very hard to figure out most games on my own, without using the skip/hint button. Would have NEVER made it through this game without it AND had to hunt down the walkthrough. (Having read other reviews, I opted to only purchase the SE on a special, thank God.) The only positive was the graphics, which were gorgeous, but when the rest of the game is sick and disturbing without much point to being so, graphics just don't carry it along. Hated it, hated it, hated it! Don't bother unless you are like me and feel compelled to finish out the MCF storyline. Then wait until it is either a sale, daily deal OR a free punch.

frustrating and irritating
I really tried with this one but it just was awful and finally gave up. the clock toward the end would not work so I couldn't finish. the morphing was okay once I figured out not to click to much but the storyline was too creepy and there was no logic to each new place to go. could not do with out the walkthrough and once the clock wasn't working I finally gave up.

Awful Awful and more Awful
I normally love the Mystery Case Files games, but I thought this was one of the worst games I have ever played. I was extremely disappointed. The whole zit popping, toenail clipping, hair pulling was disgusting. I thought the MCF group had a little more class than that. Unfortunately for me, I went and bought the Collector's edition sight unseen. I was disappointed with myself for having done that. I feel like I should be wearing a T-shirt that says I bought this lousy game for $14.00 and all I got was this MCF pin. I will definitely try the next one out before I buy it.

Unlike the first two which were really good, this was more of a chore factor than a fun factor. Really hated the morphing, I like MCF but this one was a complete let down.

Don't like the new format
I really don't like the new hidden object format. the previous Ravenhurst games were my favorite hidden object games ever. I hate this one.
