New York Mysteries: The Lantern of Souls Collector's Edition is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from No Flow to this Game Not sure why all the high stars for this game either. I found the flow of the story very confusing. Near the start of the game, you were told hurry, I have to get back to HQ's, but then you are stuck in all this mindless detail before you get back to the investigation. I agree with another reviewer who thought the same as me, that the story was lost in detail. Yes, we have to find a screwdriver, and a zipper pull. Then make a concoction mixing dangerous chemicals to spray on the rusty door of a room in HQ to get out the professor? What???? The mini games were so simple, I think they are geared towards kids, but not expert players. Another disappointment of the games that are been developed lately. I wish the developers would stop trying to push out games so quickly that they are just a copy of all the other games we have played. Remember, it's quality, not quantity, that's important. What is the point, when you can just replay a game that you have already, since there is nothing new out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just how old is this mess?? Generally I play a game demo to its conclusion as there are times when a game starts out slowly and then picks up steam. Could not bring myself to the same conclusion with Lantern of Souls. For starters, the character drawing is definitely a throwback to games we had available 6-7 years ago. This is the first indication of the age of the game. Either that or the developer has not the ability to draw and animate a more refined character. As a brief synopsis, a newspaper reporter ventures to the home of a recent widow who herself has now been slain. Naturally the security guard provides her with a key to enter what is a crime scene. Give me a break !! One of the first things we see is a gramaphone. Since the setting is the 1950's, a hi-fi is more appropriate. Next we are faced with the all too common tasks many of us are tiring of. Placing a newspaper under a door and using a needle to acquire the key, obtaining a screwdriver to remove screws in a place where screws just should not be, finding a code to open a safe with an unusual combination, etc. Then it took so long to crack the safe with a myriad of shapes to configure merely to gather a needed item. The boredom is quickly gathering pace folks. I didn't encounter a single traditional HO segment as I had already abandoned New York Mysteries with the opinion the game is rather dreadful. The only hint of any game modernity is the inclusion of morphs and collectible cards. It doesn't help. Had the game been offered in 2008 rather than 2016 I still would have given it an enthusiastic thumbs down.
