Mystery Case Files: Escape from Ravenhearst
Does not give good hints. Have to keep going back to the walk thru. The story keeps getting worse as you go. If you have a weak stomach do not do this game.

Ugh, a waste of money and time.
I disliked this game so much that I actuallly took the time to write a review of how much I disliked it.
First, I personally, love the Mystery Case Files series. I like 'hidden objects'. What I don't like is 'morphing objects'. I would rather have a laundry list of items to find than objects that morph. I end up staring at the screen until my eyes are dry and I have to walk away!!!
Second, some of the puzzles are so ridiculously hard that I didn't even know where to start. By the third or fourth puzzle, I had just started skipping the puzzles because there wasn't any logic of how to solve them. The only logic was that they wanted you to buy the Collector's Edition, so that you would have an idea of what the point of the puzzles were.
Third, the whole 'story' line was drowned out by the awful sound effects that were meant to be creepy. It was just a big bizarre hot mess and I don't recommend it at all. If you're a fan of hidden object games, I recommend an earlier MCF title. Huntsville still is my favorite!

What a let down
I loved the other Ravenhearst games but was very disappointed with this one. The morphing objects are very hard to find - would rather have HO instead. The story was disturbing to say the least and became very complicated. MCF is one of my favorites but give this one a big miss!

I wouldn't waste my money
This is the worst MCF game. I've played them all, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Not only is this NOT a hidden object game, but there is a "HINT" button that you can't use. Horrible game. Played for a half hour , got stuck, NO HINTS, so i quit.

It is a seriously unpleasant game - over complicated with impossible puzzles.couldn't you have at least have added a hint button. I have played all of these but this was awful!!

what have you done
I have played every MCF game and enjoyed them all. Do not like morphing, but worse still there is no continuity in the scenes which lead you to where to go next. Will not be buying anymore MCF unless they revert to old format.
