Quirky but definitely playable
I read the other reviews and was undecided whether to run the trial or not.
However, as you may have guessed, I tried it and although it's not the best game in the world it is playable and fun in a quirky kind of way.
Some people will hate it, others will like the relaxed fun part of the game. It has minigames, HOS and puzzles within a loosly connecting story tied to the TV show premis. It is not really challenging but it is fun.
There is no voiceover and the characters do not move except in a bizarre gliding in and out motion. Some of the plot is almost laughable but that is in keeping with the TV show.
Don't expect logic or cerebral challenges in this game but a fun, varied time-waster, it definitely is.

The Storyline kept engaged~
I love a good hidden object game, this was a little much when it came to the HOG's, some easy finds and others too blended in. Mini games were cool and easy, but fun. The game was a little slow, in spite of the comments on the cut out characters, I liked them. Not every game needs to be 3-d-ish, and I liked the style of this game, and the story kept me intriqued, curious though of how it ends, I'm just not looking forward to the HOG in this game.

Liked that there are realistic looking characters, rather than cartoon type. Like games where characters solve mysteries. Relaxing, not taxing -- I don't work hard at something unless I'm paid or earning college credit. Want more of these type games.

It was alright
My criteria when choosing a game to buy is that if I feel let down that the free trial ended then I probably should buy this game. I did not feel that let down with this game. I enjoyed what I played of the game but didn't feel compelled to go any further. I love Ghost Whisperer but the game did not do it justice.

A frightful game
But not really spooky.
I'd call this an uneven game, meaning ups and downs. Good graphics, but the people were cartoon-y and like paper doll cut-outs. Nice animations, but they were limited, and there was a noticeable delay between scenes. Dialogue was decent in some spots yet stilted in others, with little story development. Ghostly presences were far and few, and it was even harder to stay in the mood with the game jumping from finding inventory to hidden objects to unrelated mini-puzzles. In essence, the game was a very weak imitation of the TV show, and nothing like the true experiences of the woman the show is based on. (I live in a nearby community). So for me, this game doesn't have a ghost of a chance. Yes, someone had to say it.

Rather slow paced game. Not very challenging, it was ok but wouldn't buy it.

not a lot of fun, disappointing
The hints are too vague and the game is confusing

Sorry couldn't get into the "spirit" for playing this game. Dreadful. Actually I live in the same area as the original ghostbuster, who was the inspiration and consultant for the series. I think she and Jennifer Love Hewitt would enter the spirit world themselves if they saw this game. The show has not been on the air for at least 2 years so it is now on reruns which makes it slightly dated. And this game is poorly constructed. The graphics are horrible, basically cut out characters. There is no voice. There is not a journal nor a diary to follow on the game. The puzzles are very easy and the objects needed to use in the puzzles practically jump out at you. I chose the harder mode and even that was very easy. In comparison with the recent HOG adventure games we have had in the last few days, I give this one a zero. It just doesn't have a "ghost" of a chance in my world.

After playing so many fabulous games this one was a " delete " for me. Constant pop ups, people moving like stick figures. Talk talk talk. This game does not allow you to think for yourself, seemed like. Yes ,there is a map, and that tells you too where to go. Sorry, did not keep my interest

I jumped and bought this game because it looked like it might be fun-WRONG! I disagree that it is too easy and that every item jumps out at you, for me I find the opposite. Anytime I needed help I got the most stupid answer that was of no help what so ever. I also found the game jerky when changing locations and it was weird to have no conversations except the written word, I think we can do better than this. I don't think I would even recommend this game to someone I was mad at.
