Midnight Mysteries: The Edgar Allan Poe Conspiracy
This is a good game if you are new to "Hidden Object Games" (HOG)
When this game was new perhaps it would have been better for me, but I have played several of these games now I just finished "Midnight Mysteries-Devil on the Mississippi, Collectors Edition" (CE) and all I can say is wow what difference. If you are a new player or have played a few HOG's then this would be a good option to move on to more advanced games. You will definitely get some good hidden object experience with this game. Most everything is done for you. You will be lead along by the hand for the most part. I did use the "Try B4 U Buy" and am glad I did. I will say that the HO scenes are not easy by any means.

Awful is all I can think of
This is one of the worse HO games I've played. There is absolutely no story line at all and it's ALL HOs....nothing else to fine or solve. Plus the graphics were very bad and not clear at all. It just goes from one HO scene to another. Don't waste your money on this one....I don't recommend it at all.

Very poor game
I was very disappointed with this game - having played quite a few midnight mysteries before like - 'Salem Witch Trials ' and found them to be excellent - this game was just not in the same league. The game was just hidden object with a couple of odd bits thrown in - there were no puzzles to speak of (none that an 8 yr old couldn't do easily) The music was boring - the graphics too dark and the storyline poor -overall I would not recommend this game at all.

AGREE DULL GAME!
There are Much worse games I have played...
but I Expected More from a Midnight Mysteries Game..
Story is really terrible..
there is very little Adventure Gaming in this game imo...
I had to finish it because thats just how I am..
sometimes games get better...
but this one never did for me...
Buy Midnight Mysteries Salem Witch Trials
or Haunted Houdini instead
and pass on this one
thats my 2 cents...

Too easy to play. Not enough depth to grapghics like "House of a 1000 Doors" series or "Mystery Case Files". No adventure in this game.

What a dull game
Wow - what a dull game for such an interesting author as Poe.
1. Repetitive - there really isn't any kind of adventure - you just mosey from HO screen to HO screen while the story eventually unfolds in front of you. Almost all the screens have the same dark/bluesh-grey color.
2. Nonsensical - The story doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, and mostly kept me off balance.
3. Annoying beginning. I felt like I was 3 years old learning to cross the street there was so much hand holding and tutorial in the beginning.
4. Annoying effects. The penalty for over-clicks (which is basically 3 wrong clicks) is the replacement of your bird by a cat. Its noisy and a nuisance.
5. Items dim and hard to find.
6. Dull non-descript music.
It was the second game ever I stopped before the end because I just didn't care to finish. Perhaps the later Midnight mysteries are better - but this one is for the birds.

Static pictures and no real game, just a lot of HO
I had played the other Midnight Mysteries games and loved them. This one was terrible. You just go from one Hidden Object screen to another, and it limits the objects you can look for each time. Terrible!
