Customer Reviews
Ghost Files: The Face of Guilt is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of Typos! No proofreading before this was released, apparently. Good game but not much of a challenge, which takes away from it for me. Was happy to see a game without wispy ghosts and dark energy. Think you'll enjoy this one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just an okay game, not a must have. The graphics are somewhat soft around the edges; background sounds are, generally, appropriate; the voice-over narratives are delivered very slowly and, while they do, for the most part, add to your store of information, they just don’t sound convincing. The music is played at a slow tempo, which was probably done to add dramatic effect. The story line is not really new —you’re a detective chasing a serial killer— but there is just enough of a twist to make it interesting. The HO sequences are moderately challenging, without making the hint button your best friend. Likewise the mini-games. Others have described the play-by-pay —which was a little too slow for my liking— so I won’t duplicate their work. The interactive map is useful, though the symbols are little difficult to make out. When I reviewed the CE version of this game I said that I’d wait for the SE and buy that since, as you already know if you’ve read any of my other reviews, I’m not a fan of CEs. Now, having played the SE demo, I’ve changed my mind. The game play is just too slow to hold my interest, and the characters just don’t really engage me enough to make me want to go in harm’s way to help them. If you don’t mind slow playing games, you might find this one to your liking. Otherwise, don’t bother. As always, my caveat is that you play the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid 3.5 stars I bought this game due to the high ratings and the promising first hour of the demo. The graphics are decent, the detective story premise is original in its own way and critically, all the mechanics ran smoothly. These qualities have stuck it out right through to the bitter end, which is why I'm giving is a 'solid' 3.5 stars. The reason why it loses 1.5 stars is just that the gameplay is wholly unoriginal. I also found the storyline, despite its promising beginning, to be quite dull, devoid of twists and predictable. I could guess what was going to happen from the second I got a new 'clue' which took all the detective-work fun out of it for me, I'm afraid. New gamers will undoubtedly enjoy this, since it does such a good job of delivering the tried-and-tested mechanics, hidden object scenes and minigames. For anyone who has played more than about 15 HOGs in the past 2 years however, this game is not original enough and is therefore a bit of a drag - despite its finer qualities. In summary, this is a smooth but somewhat lifeless mystery adventure that will mainly only appeal to beginners.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from AM I A PARANORMAL INVESTIGATOR? When the Collector's Edition was first released, I was really excited when I read the title of this new series, Ghost Files: The Face of Guilt. Awesome, says I, a new paranormal game series about Ghosts! After downloading the game, my anticipation starts mounting, first things first, let's check out the "extra's," contain yourself says I. So I gathered my excited wits, surely there are ghostly beyond objects, says I, aha!, er....wait a minute, where are the Collector's Edition extras, says I? Well, turns out that you have to Buy the Game, Play the Game, and Yes, you actually have to FINISH THE ENTIRE GAME before you have access to anything! Now I understand what that stupid saying means that my Grandma used to always say, "you wouldn't buy a pig in a poke, would you?" I remember asking her, Grandma, what's a poke? Her reply, it's a bag, my next question, but Grandma, why did they put a pig in a bag? Her response, "exactly!" Hmf!?! Now that the proverbial pig is out of its bag, or is it still in the bag? Anyway, let's just move right along to the story, Ghost stories! Wait, what? Ghost Files is about a serial killer? Okay, maybe I just haven't progressed far enough into the game, I'm betting that the serial killer has been dead for about 50 years, but he thinks he's still alive, I says to myself, keep playing! Nope, it still seems that the "Guilty Man" is very much alive. Ooh, ooh, I know the answer, Emily Hunter, the lead detective, is really dead, but she doesn't know she's dead and keeps coming to work, that's why she just ditched the Psychic, Julie Sanders, right? Wrong, she's apparently still very much alive too! So I keep doing my detective thing all over the city, suspecting that everyone I see, is just a ghost, but they keep disappointing me with their living, breathing, aliveness! By the end of the demo, I've come to the conclusion that I'm not going to see any ghosts, until.........I FINISH THE ENTIRE GAME, am I right? The Hidden Object Scenes involve finding several ghosts. Actually none of that was true, they are just normal junk piles, consisting mostly of Interactive List finds or Progressive, Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds. You can opt to play an alternate Monaco Card Game of matching pairs of identical cards with ghosts on them. Okay that part isn't true either, there are no ghost pictures. You can make matches vertically, horizontally, diagonally or ghostly. The Mini Games don't involve ghosts or files. Below are brief descriptions of some of the ghostly games you'll encounter during the demo: 1) Turn the safe dial to the correct numbers and the correct direction, right, left or ghost. 2) Compare the 2 finger prints by dragging the microscope lens across the ghostly sample on the right, searching for unique ghostly marks given on the left side. 3) Compare the DNA of two ghostly blood samples by finding 3 pairs of matching ghost microbes. 4) Use the ghostly mouse to drag the ghostly chain along the ghostly line until you reach the ghostly hole on the right. 5) Select the 3 ghostly flowers from the fridge clue magnets on the padlock sliders. The Collector's Edition has 22 Achievements to earn, 10 Collectible victim Pictures, Collectible Tarot Cards, 5 Forensic item collectibles, Wallpapers, Concept Art pictures, Movies and Cutscenes, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, and lots and lots of non-existent Ghosts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No, Virginia, There Are No Ghosts! Ghost Files has no ghosts, nor much to attract avid gamers. There is a mystery - that is until you read the review that tells you the killer's name. You are a detective investigating a serial killer. He has killed ten people already and you have no suspects. Then a woman calls and says she knows the identity of the killer. You rush off to her apartment and arrive minutes too late. There are the usual HOPs with a matching game alternative, mini-games that are very average, and a repetitive musical score that will force you to turn off the sound. The artwork is supposed to make the city look gritty, but mostly it just looks dark and things are tiny till you zoom in - when you can. All of the usual logic lapses will parade through the story: You ask if your forensic kit is ready to go. Yes and here it is - except you have to open the safe to retrieve fingerprint tape, test tubes, powder, and a brush. This police department is REALLY careful of their equipment! You go looking for a missing wire and then cut one out of a doorbell panel and use it, claiming it must be the right one. DUH! Not if you CUT it out of the panel. You see the witness being dragged across the floor and break down the door to get to her. Do you search for the person dragging her? Of course not. There are no other apparent exits, but you still don't look around. Good work, detective! I finished the Demo and wondered why I bothered. Please try this game for yourself. Believe only your own experience.
