Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure (Light).
People complain about no voiceovers. It would have probably cost the devs an absolute fortune to have the real actors and if they'd employed others to mimic the voices, then there would have been complaints about them not sounding the same.
I wasn't blown away with the pop-up cut-out characters but as the game progressed, it stopped bothering me. There is quite a bit of dialogue but if you took it away, how would the story be told? When you are demoing a game it can seem like a lot because I think you tend to rush through trying to get as much of the gameplay as possible.
The HO scenes were find items by list and these were well done. You do revisit scenes and items previously found are returned but some have been moved around.
I enjoyed the puzzles even though they didn't go into full screen. I normally hate that but it didn't bother me in this game. Some were old, some were new. Some were easy, some harder.
There are two stories to play and I've just finished playing the first which took me about 4 hours.
There is a map which if you click on it you can see which areas are open to investigation and jump to them.
In the clues box it will give you objectives and will tell you if there is anything else to find before you move on. This is great.
Thoroughly enjoyed the first game and I'm looking forward to playing the second.

I Saw Dead People and I Had Fun!
Being a fan of the show, I am always in the mood for a good ghost story and this one has two. Ghost Whisperer is certainly not a great game but it does carry a good storyline which is where I gave my high marks. Catagorized as an Adventure, I found it to be more of a HOPA. Not very challenging but entertaining. Graphics and visuals are dated but sharp and good, not outstanding and if you can get past the carton paste figures, its not so bad. There are no voice-overs and there are two game play options. You have two seperate stories to play which is like having two game in one. Game features include only a map that you will need to get from one location to another. There is a task bar right above the inventory list and a hint system that does refill quickly. Game mechanics involve adventure play whereby you need to find your clues and items for your inventory. There are also HO scenes that are over-crowded and not interactive (except some items are obscured by a fog which can be lifted whn you find a small ghost like image). In addition there are mini-games to paly which I actually enjoyed. Although they were not complicated, they were well designed and blended into the story-line. This is not an outstanding game and yes the visuals are a bit dated as are the game features. However, the storyline keeps your attention and I think beginners to adventure games should definitly give this one a try. if you are a fan of mystery, ghosts and ofcourse Melindai the Ghost Whisperer, you may just enjoy this game. I actually did enjoy myself during the demo and have already spent this months's credit on it. See you all onthe other side......

I never was a fan of the show, but the game really appealed to me.
The best thing about this game was the Hidden Object Scenes. They were a challenge, with some objects easy to find and others a little harder.
The gameplay was very good and straightforward. There was really no need for a strategy guide.
A great storyline, but there probably should've been some voice-overs.
Great graphics, very modern and detailed.
The hint recharged very fast.
You're probably getting sick of me saying this, but the puzzles were average. Some were really easy, but some were very hard.
Unlike the hint, the skip took ages to recharge.
The introduction to the story could've been thought out better. It didn't really hook me.
All in all, for such a terrible show, thegame was actually very good. Highly recommended to haters and fans of the show.

Perfect game for me
I was almost scared off by everyone else's reviews, but I'm very glad I ended up trying it out anyways. While it's true that the graphics are a little dated and that the lack of voiceover forces you to read all the dialogue, I still found that it was a perfect way to pass lazy afternoons. I usually find Hidden Object games a little too difficult, but this game was just right. The HO scenes had both easy and hard to find items alike. The puzzles were challenging but not frustrating. Also, if you give the story the time to read it all, it's actually really engaging and well written. If you're looking for a simpler, more relaxing game to play, I'd definitely recommend this one.

TWO DELIGHTFUL GAMES FOR PRICE OF ONE
The 2nd mystery (which took a little over 3 hours) is unlocked after completing the 1st mystery (didn't track time). Game follows the same format as the television program did. If you liked the tv program, you'll like the HOG. Play casual or expert. There is a map, on which only active scenes are displayed. Sometimes you may have to visit a specific location to search for an object to be used in a scene; however, since only active scenes are displayed at any time, there is no excess back and forth. Hint button is helpful if you get stuck with what to do next. No voice overs ? the dialogue (of which there is plenty) is written. But you can click through it as fast as you read. Although the stories are interesting, the endings are sort of ?hookie? just as they were in the tv series. Overall, a delightful game.
