good fun game
There are 3
episode focuses on HOS's,
The hint system is ok though you need to be judicious in using them. You replenish your hints by finding the raven in every new scene. No worry not that hard of a game.
Not much for adventure. Good game.
The game is a bit short compared to others, but don't let that stop you - it's a fun game for an afternoon of playing.

A great intermediate game
If you are looking for an intermediate game to play, this is it. The puzzles are easy, graphics are kinda old school, but none the less a good game over all. Make sure you collect the black crow in each scene to add to your hint collection.
game on gamers...

This is a great game. Not too much navigation, because the story moves you along from scene to scene. The Hidden Objects ranged from easy to hard and you have more than enough hints to make it through.
Plot wise, it definitely gets more interesting after you make it through the first part of the story. I liked Mary's story more than the other, but the overall plot line was good. The only issue was that you couldn't really piece together what was going on at times, because you were getting information before you really knew what to make of it. You'll probably need to play it at least twice to get the fine details of the story in your head.
Overall, great game and I will definitely continue the series.

I enjoyed this game because of its intriguing theme and story-line. I recommend this for fans of mysteries and Edgar Allen Poe.

Too short Too easy
This was VERY short for my taste in HOA games. I also found the beginning made me feel like someone was holding my hand every step of the way. The story line was okay at best, no voice overs at all and the graphics were fairly grainy and dark. You also have to click the correct objects several times before the game recognizes it and sometimes this will lead you into a penalty. Glad I bought it on sale and not full price!

Houdini beats Poe with a shamrock
I can tell this is the first game of the series. I bought the Houdini version. They're pretty similar but I miss looking for the extra object (ie the shamrocks for the bonus HOS). Will have to finish the trial before I decide if I want to buy it. I was about to quit before I realized that rubbing the icons was for one puzzle. I thought 'enough of the grave rubbings,already'. If you like a HOG and not so much travelling from one place to another frequently, you'll enjoy this. Pretty basic.

Good Hidden Object Game
Aftter finally trying this game I found it okay. It isn't a Hidden Object game that I am familiar with. It seems like every scene is about the same. There really is no story line to follow for this game.There are a lot of objects to look for in each part of the game. Not too challenging! It's a so-so game for me....

It was OK..
This was one of the first games that introduced me to HOG.. Ever since, I am hooked, so it's a bit of nostalgia playing this one. I like the story but I hate how clutter the HOG scenes were, and every 3 wrong clicks give you penalty. It's difficult seeing things in such messy scenes. But I like the storyline, which I think is original, and ever since, Mumbo Jumbo delivers many great similar games and it keeps getting better. Hope to see more of their games (less clutter, please!)

the E.A.Poe Conspiracy/Midnt.Myst.
I don't own the game,played the trial version.Same as most HOGs.Very dark screens,hard to see objects.A story has to grip your imagination from the start;this doesn't-after an hour.Won't buy,they should remake.But,I bought,"Devil On The Mississippi". That's the 5 star best! P.S: E.A.Poe was murdered by"cooping": Kidnapped;had liquor poured down his throat;had his clothes changed to someone else's.Then,he was forced to vote,several times,changing clothes.He was found in the street,incoherent,with someone elses clothes on,and sent to hospital;and died.Many people died of cooping. Great loss and a horrible way to die.-For those interested in Poe.
