Haunted Halls: Revenge of Doctor Blackmore
if you like the other haunted halls you will like this one
dr. blackmore is back and just as evil as ever. he has taken hostages and you have to free them to get the one you care about the most released. it is a great game and the graphics are pretty good. sound is something i don't know about. i only heard it a couple of times. the puzzles were different and i solved a few of them. hint/skip button charged fairly fast. hints don't always tell you what to do as much as where to go. you have to figure it out yourself. there is a journal there. there is also a lab where you have to mix things together to advance through the levels.

Thought at first it was going to be a dark game, but really enjoyed it. Different HOS.
The graphics were great. Good story.
Found it rather easy and relaxing.

One of my favorites
This games opens with a bang, and doesn't let you stop playing until it's over. Great storyline, fun and interesting mini puzzles, and challenging enough to keep you on your toes. Love it.

Excellent game. I can't berate this game in any way. The mini games were difficult and infuriating...just the way I like them!!!! Bought this game as soon as I finished the trial!!!

Wicked good game!
If you've enjoyed the other Haunted Halls games you're gonna love this one. They just keep getting better.
I won't go into any depth here, other reviewers have described it well. I'll just say that they've kicked it up a notch. Really a fun game.

Good but starting to get tired
Having played others in the series, I didn?t hesitate to buy this game in what was until this game a good franchise.
This game followed the other formats in that you had to help others before you could save Tim. This time though it was ?personal? as all the characters you had to rescue were people that had slighted the ?good? doctor in the past. Dr Blackmore being a particularly evil person didn?t put them into separate rooms of the asylum oh no he sent them to ?far-flung? ?disaster zones? such as Chernobyl. The game therefore had distinct chapters and each one could be played independently thus if you wanted to take a break between each chapter you could do knowing that you were ?starting again? with a new game within in a game (if you see what I mean). Each of the different chapters were good and well-thought out, and gave a little background to the zone and why that particular person was put where they were. The area was also well thought out thus (taking the above example) for Chernobyl you were told what happened there and a bit of further background, this helped therefore with playing the individual chapters.
Overall the game was good, as was the acting and voice synchronisation. The music was atmospheric and fitted in well with the game. The only downside was that in order to get a fully rounded game you have to really purchase the CE as the SE would have left players wondering exactly what happened to Dr Blackmore. I feel that this ploy should really be ousted as not everyone can afford (or indeed want the CE (can buy more games if you don?t purchase the CE) the CE and thus it is unfair to penalise people by not giving them a ?proper ending? after all people have taking the time and ?botheration? to purchase the game and to play it through so the lease they should be able to expect is an ending of sorts.
One final word, I hope this is the end of this particular franchise as unless they do some major overhauling this franchise is going to get weaker and weaker and people are going to just think the developers are just ?milking the licence?.

The octodoc you love to hate
Just got the SE version of this game with a free game coupon. I've played some of the other games in the series, and enjoyed them. The puzzles in this one were not too hard for me, except the rings in Chernobyl. I am impatient, and I just didn't want to take the time to figure it out. Also appealing was the fact that you don't have to traipse back and forth as much as in some other games. This was fun for me, but it might be too easy for expert players to enjoy.
