Customer Reviews
New York Mysteries: The Lantern of Souls is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GAME NO EXAGGERATION--SPELLBINDING CAST! If FIVE-BN GAMES doesn't win one or two top 2016 game categories for this, will be very disappointed. This is great gaming. For starters, with 26 smooth, detailed videos, gamers can't go wrong. Developers took their time, however, get the CE so you can replay them as I did many times over. The best is Video 17 in the lineup--will give you a gasp as it did our beautiful, unassuming Laura James. All are great with 17 as my favorite and then 19, 20 and 21. Music - 6 awesome tracks with the usual spellbinding New York Mysteries musical score--violins, cellos and horns, oh my! Mini-puzzles - 18 with 5 added puzzles n the CE CE Bonus Game of 20 added mini-puzzles as well. Complete Collections or go back to retrieve any missed. Gamers can re-visit any scene again and again as no scenes are blocked. How's that for being thorough and generous? The journal is very interesting and helps gamers understand the story line. Did I say story line? Indeed! Professor Bishop, Laura James, Will and a cast of others will thrill gamers with their personality and good looks. Even the villain is ruggedly handsome as a "lunatic". Thank you FIVE-BN GAMES for a fabulous, over-the-top ten star gaming experience. Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Graphics! Hint Transports! Moves Forward! Fun Game! Overall: Great graphics, good stand alone story, interesting scenes, clear items, not a lot of back and forth and if you had to return to an old scene the hint transported you there. This game was entertaining and enjoyable with a good pace and offered a fun journey. It’s not a real long game, but it’s one the whole family can enjoy together and a game I will play again. The New York Mystery games are well designed and crafted and worth giving one or more a try. Graphics: Excellent clarity of all objects, scenes. Well crafted. Sounds: Very appropriate. Music: Didn’t have to turn off, not intrusive to the game. Characters: Human with a touch on the cartoon, mostly attractive and not distracting from the game, very well done Hints: Transported you to next scene and moved the game steadily forward which I prefer. Map: Could use to transport but didn’t really need it with the excellent hint transport. HOG: Interactive and fun, so you have a bit of a challenge, mostly find objects vs lists. Clear objects and good visibility, and no dark hidden corners. Mini: Varied and well crafted, probably not as challenging as some, but as a non-mini fan I genuinely enjoyed them and only skipped a couple.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots To Do Good length, lots of content, many scenes, decent puzzles, understandable plot and a map to help you out. That's a lot for a game that isn't a CE. There's a bit of back and forth, but they gave us a map so there's no need to complain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New York, New York! This was an excellent game. It was very clever and had lots of fun mechanics. However it wasn't so difficult that the average mechanic wanna-be couldn't accomplish anything. It was totally fun from a to z.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Fun Mystery Game I loved this game. It is story driven and not just a usual hidden object game. There are hidden object scenes but they are silhouettes and instead of just searching for an item you must use the silhouetted item to find other items in the scene. I so prefer that to just random items to find in a scene. The story is good and the length of the game was also good. The puzzles were easy but it didn't detract from the fun of the game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! An excellent game and how lovely that it was an SE. Really engaging, good puzzles and an even spread of HOs. More like this please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely a hit with me I was hoping for another New York Mystery and was not disappointed with this game. Another sinister villain wanting to rule the world which leads us into a battle again solving all obstacles to defeat evil once again, I played the CE version and so pleased that I purchased it. The graphics were brilliant with a great storyline. Music has become a theme for New York Mysteries since the very first in the series. I had very little need for the hint in the puzzles but definitely needed the map to get to some of the levels. I especially liked the puzzle with the four tokens which had to be moved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's Hard To Feel Sorry For This Golddigger! The White Stone Order has another case for Laura James to solve, and Dr. Bishop is convinced that it's paranormal. Laura is one tough woman, especially when you consider this New York Mystery takes place in the 50's, a Journalist/Detective that doesn't let anything stand in her way, even the undead! When Laura starts her investigation of the brutal murder of Carrie Martel, a widow who buried her famous lawyer husband just hours ago, things just don't add up. Has Thomas returned to seek revenge, or is there a much more plausible theory? I purchased the Collector's Edition because, New York Mysteries is known for its collections and The Lantern of Souls is no exception. There are 9 hidden Apples, 9 hidden Shields, 9 Music Symbols, and 9 hidden Miners. There are also 20 Achievements to earn and 35 Morphing Objects to find throughout the adventure, and a new feature of 16 collectible Fact Cards that give you fun facts about points of interest in New York. The Hidden Object Scenes are scarce, with only 5 in the entire game, BUT, I promise you they will not disappoint you. These are extremely Interactive Progressive Silhouetted Shape Finds, with all kinds of gadgets to figure out and several smaller puzzles to solve within each HOP. The Mini Games are really creative, however, several of them are just too simple to solve, my only complaint of this entire game. Below are brief descriptions of some of the Mini games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Rotate the arrow to set the correct sequence. 2) Select two symbols to create the symbols shown in the center. 3) Find pairs of taps that rotate at the same rate of speed. 4) Use a code to unlock a door. 5) Use the control buttons to help the mouse move a square to the designated spot. 6) Connect wires from left to right by following tangled leads. The Collector's Edition has 9 Wallpapers, 16 Concept Art pictures, 26 Videos, 6 Music Soundtracks, 18 replayable Mini Games, 5 replayable Puzzles, 20 Achievements, 35 Hidden Collectibles, 16 collectible Fact Cards, 35 Morphing Objects, 20 Bonus Games, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, enjoy!
