Haunted Halls: Nightmare Dwellers
This game started out a little crazy for me. (tea cups with legs)
I kept going and it actually got much better as did the story line. The graphics were nice, the game was long and had many different scenes to interact in.

I didn't dwell on the "fix this game!" nightmare
Despite the issues, I love this game! It's silly and a little creepy at the same time. Maybe even better because I had to wait for the fix, although I wouldn't want it happen again.
The graphics are cool. The story is so goofy you can't fault it. I loved the animals throughout.
This may not be your cup tea if you want a serious game, but if you are willing to go with the flow, you'll like this game.

Liked the puzzles
Similar graphics to previous games, music atmospheric, and a good story. I like the puzzles, some of them were a bit different from ones I have played before and whilst not particularly hard, nonetheless they were enjoyable.

Still Remains a Nightmare
I had played the CE demo when it first came out. I disliked the game highly. However, loving the previous Haunted Halls games, when I saw the SE I figured, well, why not give it another try. If anything, I disliked it more. The graphics and visuals are great. You do get your choice of difficulty including custom mode. There is a map and journal. And that's where the fun ended for me. This game seems like it is trying to be all things to all players and it does not work. The solutions to objects you find are so far fetched, it's ridiculous. I found the story very disjointed and all over the place. Also, this is sooo far off from the other Haunted Halls, they should not have made it a Haunted Halls installment. The repeating puzzle with the goggles put me over the edge. Ok, maybe once, twice, .... but over and over? No. This is still a pass for me. I also do not recommend this jumbled game.

Not worth the wait!
I really enjoyed the game to start with and couldn't wait to play more. After the second chapter it started to go downhill for me. The HOG scenes were very easy and not as good as the first few. The whole game seemed much less of a challenge for me. I found the music to be inoffensive, I liked the quirky animals but on the whole I was left feeling disappointed, not the best so far.

The 'normal' difficulty level is not challenging at all. The code mini games also got annoying and didn't really add anything to the game.

Not for me
This game has you running all over the place doing odd things, no real flow to the game. If you like whimsical things, you may enjoy it. The characters (detectives) are down to earth, but the game does not seem to follow their guidance. Maybe it is just me, maybe I didn't get the idea of it. Another one for the trash can.

based on the demo
I've played the previous Haunted Halls and somewhat enjoyed them but after playing this demo, I found it way to easy and childish. too bad.... 2013

Time for a change...
Well...I tried the CE version and wasn't real excited about it. Just didn't have the umph that the others in the series had. Sometimes, when I play the SE, I see something in a game that I missed the first time around. I did not this time. Please see the CE version for my full review.
I was very disappointed in the story line...nothing new or exciting in this one. Colors seems washed out. HOGs were extremely simple and got boring very quickly. Did not care for the eyeglass games...too simple and not fun at all.
I thought I might get this as an SE to add to my collection, but unless I have a credit that is about to expire, I won't. I don't even know if a beginner would find this one interesting or fun...too bad.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews.
