Fun and unique
The puzzles weren't too challenging, though you still had to figure out what you needed to do. The hidden object scenes were medium difficulty, but still fun. I really liked the story and the graphics were great. I want to see more in this series.

gorgeous game - and engrossing
I can only repeat what others have said about the graphics, music - and the quality of the acting. I played it right through once I'd started it.
It's not terribly difficult - but not far too easy either - so a nice balance. Not frustrating or boring.The challenge for me was mostly in the HO scenes - which is what I always enjoy.
I certainly hope there will by many similar sequels from Edward's cemetery.

Very pleasant and fun game
This game was refreshing. A story of voodoo but with a different twist. It is a HOA game. There are some puzzles also. There were unique features to the puzzles. The game caught my interest from the start and left me anxious to play the next scene. There are 5 different scenes you work your way through and then go back to all of them in the end. The hint button has a great feature also. You can choose what you action you would like a hint on. It refreshes pretty quick. There were a few HO that I would have named differently and there was some searching but not too difficult. I am not much for the HO but thought these were OK. I highly recommend this game for a break from the norm and for a pleasant adventure.

What Fun/graphics great and colorful
If you are looking for a game that is just fun to play this the game for you. That's not to say that you don't have to think to play the games, some were more difficult than others and very original. No, it s not a particularly long game, but I dont think the intent was to give you an long drawn out intensive brain boggling game. It's just fun to play all the way around. Graphics are colorful and distinct, well done and really pleasing to the eye, You don't have to strain with fuzziness. I bought this game because I was looking for a break after playing 13th Skull, which I thought was terrible (loved the other games in series). Characters and voices were likeable in this game but I can't comment on the music, because I always turn it down. But I can tell you there are very real insect noises. I swore there was a cricket in my house until I realized it was the game. I will play this game over and over again!

I absolutely LOVED Deadtime Stories...I was sad when the game was over...this HOG is going to be in my lift of the top 10...it would be wonderful to have more of this style while taking place in New Orleans....The Gorgeous Visual combined with outstanding sound quality instantly made me purchase Deadtime Stories...I want MORE MORE MORE..

On any other game the repetition and limitations would have driven me nuts, but Deadtime Stories can get away with it! What a fun, original game! I didn't have to mute the music, and I ALWAYS mute the music. I didn't "blah blah" my way through the cut scenes, which usually just serve to bore me -- I was that invested in finding out the whole story.
The major flaws are that it is a very narrow world in which to search and a lot of the HOSs are identical. I really dislike it when I'm sent to the same HOS to find the exact same items I found there the last time. It smacks of laziness on the part of the game designers.
However, usually I stop playing a game as soon as I figure out it is going to keep sending me back to the same place for the same things. This time, I could forgive it and it hardly bothered me at all. The game itself overcomes its flaws.
If only the world had been slightly broader, the HOSs had been all distinct, and the game was a bit longer. Best game ever.
As it is it just has to settle for pretty freakin' cool instead of perfect.

HO and others
this has to be our favorite HO game so far, the story line is great, exporing the different areas and going all around was good, I didnt want it to end, I keep looking for more games like this one, it has to be our fav so far!!

Mon Dieu, it's Voodoo!
Loved this game because of the New Orleans theme. It definitely has the feeling of old New Orleans, the swamps, the architecture. Graphics were sensational and the story rocked. Didn't have to use the hint much at all.
I was also hoping for a level of play that involved the swamp family seen in the family portrait hanging in the tree. Their swamp house was part of one scene but the people were never seen.
The voodoo theme was well done and increased the creepy fear factor for me. This is what I love about HOGs and mystery puzzles -- a good story.
My only complaint was that the game could have been longer as it was a lot of fun. Anyway, looking forward to a sequel if the developers are planning one! Thanks!
