Midnight Mysteries: The Edgar Allan Poe Conspiracy is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Game Retains its Charm This is a review of Midnight Mysteries: The Edgar Allan Poe Conspiracy for PC. This is the first HO game I ever played, back in 2013, and I loved it. With my renewed interest in such games, I decided to replay it to see if my impressions had changed, especially since I have found myself being frustrated with games that are too easy. GAMEPLAY: I am learning that I really like HO scenes compared to Adventure or Puzzles, as this game is almost entirely HO scenes and I still loved it. They were fairly easy, but I did use hints a few times. One thing I did not like was how precise the clicking had to be. There were times I gave up on an object thinking I was wrong about it because I got the dead-click sound so many times, and then later discovered it actually was the right item. I loved having the not-quite-hint of seeing the item’s silhouette in the lantern, which did not use up an actual raven hint, but still helped me find it. There were a couple of puzzles, but not many compared to the number of HO scenes, and they were pretty easy, too, although again, I never felt irritated by them. Finally, there are ghost witnesses you can listen to. You don’t have anything to say back to them, and they usually only have one or two lines. All the dialogue is silent. I normally do not like penalties for miss clicking, but I didn’t mind the appearance of the cat, since it did not do anything permanent. Also, I kind of liked the cat. STORYLINE: I enjoyed the storyline. It is not logical, but it was still entertaining. I liked how Poe’s fictional stories were related to the “real” story of his death, and how the villain was involved in the real-life versions of those stories. I also liked the role of the books at the end. AESTHETICS: This is a beautiful game, but it’s old, so the graphics are not comparable to today’s. I liked the skeleton hand pointer, but again, due to the age of the game, it’s not as clear, which might have been part of the issue with the ease of miss clicking. The music was beautiful and soothing, and I also liked the other sound effects: the dead-click sound when miss clicking, the chime when something is found, and so on. The raven was occasionally annoying, and the cat was perfect. LENGTH/VALUE: This is definitely a short game. It was 4 hours the first time I played and shorter this time. That said, I enjoyed replaying it, and I can see myself playing it again a third time because it is so peaceful and interesting, so I think it is worth the price. Final Assessment: As far as enjoyment goes, this easily ranks as one of my favorites, even after playing and liking more difficult games. I definitely recommend it, unless you don’t like too many HO scenes. If there was a Collector’s Edition, I would probably buy it even though I already own the basic one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT GAME ALTHOUGH A LITTLE SHORT I really liked this game and couldn't stop playing it. I love books and a game based on a real author and his books is very appealing to me. This game was not hard, although at times some of the hidden objects were a little elusive. I used some hints to find some of the objects, but didn't need any hints or a walk through to complete the game. The puzzles were fairly easy. The game play was varied and engaging; very little repetition at all. Lots of hidden object scenes and lots of different types. It seemed a little short to me, but maybe it was because it was so enjoyable. I'm ready to play the other games in this series, and just hope they are as good as this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I love almost all of the Midnight Mysteries games, but this one seems to stick with me. I love this one. It is my favourite of them all. Salem Witch Trials and Devil on the Mississippi May be flashier, but this one is classic. I didn't really like Witches of Abraham. Having said all that, I really, really, REALLY wish this would come out for iPad. That would make me happy. If the makers of this game are listening, pleeeeeeease. Haha. Love this game

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good visual effects and challenging. it is a good game but it is wise to always play the online game before you decide to buy the game that way you can determine whether it is your type of game playing. Try it before you buy plan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good times! This was the game that hooked me on HOGs in the first place, but I'm a big Poe fan and a sucker for ravens. It's been a while since I first played it, but I loved the ambiance of the graphics and the music. A fun game all around, and it had me hooked from the start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poe's Playhouse I've read all of Poe's books but to have them in game form is just too cool. The graphics and the story lines are just wonderful. Full of suspense and at times makes you feel like your part of the game. I hope there are more Poe mystery games to come in the future.

This one you can play over and over again. Have fun, I know I did. It kept me up for hours, just couldn't stop playing till I reach the end. Great game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting game.... I really enjoyed this game, although my biggest complaint was the shortness of it. It should have been longer so I could continue playing it. Don't really feel like I got my money's worth.
