Customer Reviews
Haunted Hotel: Personal Nightmare is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Based on completed main game & bonus play of CE • A note to people new to this site & reading reviews: If you toggle the “SORT BY” on this page, change it to “NEW” (& most helpful) I’ve noticed there are more reviewers in that category that have completed the full game and not just the demo—A lot of them will clearly show at the top “review on completed game” and I always find it so helpful. The SE portion of the game took me 3:02 hrs. CE bonus play took me 1 hour CE secret room took me 8 min. Total Gameplay was 4 hours & 10min I play all of these games on custom mode. I complete all the HOS & try to complete the minigames but I’ll skip them if I become frustrated. I play at an average rate and run the stopwatch on my phone whenever I’m playing so it may take you more or less time. I love how Elephant lets you turn on/off the "special effects" in options. I noticed when I had this setting off the scenes seemed clearer. I would occasionally switch it on/off mid game. MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO MENTION: ~The main game ends quickly, but conclusively and is independent from the CE bonus ending. ~ There were some great mini games in this game. The demo has a (challenging) arial obstacle mg of a black horse and rider that was fun. Page 20 of wtg has one for James I loved; Chapter 4 has a great toy train one on pg. 25 of wtg. ~ You play in many beautiful and eerie, outdoor locations. You don't just ramble around inside the hotel rooms. One fear was loneliness. "Mountain Spiral Road" just nailed that feeling. ~ Jump scares: I LOVED these animations! Most were in the demo but they did continue right on into the bonus play. Whoever did the animation for these....just perfectly done!!! You got me, more than once! ~ RE: MAP- I didn't find this map all that easy to read quickly so I used the portal hint and the strategy guide instead if needed. FAVORITE CHAPTER is #3 James’s chapter. I am such a fan of the handsome James and it was fun to see him again. We get to revisit a pinch of some prior HH in his chapter. The Axiom Butcher, Death Sentence, & The Phoenix are the ones that readily come to mind. This game did not have replayable videos OR a diary, only a useless task list. I often play more than one game at once and one or the other of these things is so helpful. It was missed. IF YOU LIKED THIS GAME HERE ARE SOME OTHER GREAT GAMES I'VE PLAYED HERE LIKE IT: 1. Harrowed Halls: Lakeview Lane (has keys for locked fear doors too). 2. Sable Maze: 12 Fears (ea. chapter was a fear here too). 3. Bonfire Stories #1 The Gravedigger: (I had just finished the CE to Bonfire when I bought this HH I kept forgetting I was in a different game. It has the same colors palette & great play/story.) RE: CE VERSION: For anyone who cares: I did a much more detailed review for the CE version so if you want to know more about the bonus play or CE content… I listed another review on its CE page outlining the bonus story & things to look for in the CE. Many thanks to BFG & Elephant Games for many hours of fun and a game I will replay for sure. You keep making them & I’ll keep buying them :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haunted Hotel as it should be, Creep and Scary! Stellar! I'm not going to go into details about the game as charlene_lane and pennmom36 have already done a great job explaining everything technical about the game . I would just like to say that this game is Stellar! The graphics are beyond amazing, just the trees alone in the forest were a marvel to me, the faces appeared to be living and breathing, one was actually crying. The huge spider spinning a large ball of silk, although gross to me was still something to behold! The setting's change from time to time and the overall feel is dark, sinister and spooky. There were two times in the demo alone that scared the heck out of me, I just loved it! This is the Haunted Hotel done right, harkens back to the earlier games in this series but with much better graphics! Elephant Games, can be very proud of themselves they put out a stellar game! A lot of hard work went into this game and it shows. I think it's pretty darn close to perfect! My only critique would be if they have people in the games with you, which I love, they should find a way to make them actually work with you or help you along the way, that would be awesome. I know some who have played the complete CE edition of this game say it's a bit on the short side and that's probably true since I finished the demo with at least half the time still left but I do tend to skip mini games so maybe that's why. Even if it's a shorter game it's still well worth the full price or a free game coupon. Yes, I highly recommend this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Is My First Time With Haunted Hotel... and it was impressive in the demo, but still won't catch ME there. I found the game to be pretty easy but that didn't make a negative difference. The games and HOGs were very entertaining, especially enjoyed the HOGs which were of average challenge and a little different. The color and graphics were fantastic, perfect really, and the characters were very realistic. The story caught my attention right away, as other reviewers mentioned monsters, phobias and other horrors lurking throughout the game. Those things added to a haunted hotel, have to create a really creepy scenario! I did feel some uneasiness while playing because of a few things I saw, so I suspect a whole lot more in the game's entirety. I know it is only a game, but for the life of me, I don't understand how someone can walk into a place like that for ANY REASON! And I wanted to shake some sense into Steven Blake, like crazy, about his friend who kept repeating things like a broken robot!! Such informative reviews can be found under the CE Version, I think I will leave the details there for you to discover, as not much more to offer here with just the demo to go by. Don't know which version I will buy, but if a really good sale comes up, I would love to have the strategy guide. I'm looking forward to a chilling good time, whichever version I choose! Faith....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from YOU HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FEAR ITSELF....AND WHAT LURKS INSIDE THE FREEDOM HOTEL Welcome to the Freedom Hotel, a hotel that can grant your deepest desires, a hotel that can help you overcome your deepest fears. A hotel whose owner just might be the Ruler of Darkness, the Angel of Light, Belial in the flesh, the great Deceiver, Beelzebub, the almighty King of the bottomless pit! The cost of a room at this hotel isn't cheap, you could very well pay the ultimate price.....you're soul! To play this game, you'll have to sign a contract with the hotel's owner (no worries, you will be signing in as Stephen Blake searching for his mother Elizabeth and sister Kate, not your chosen screen name, just in case your darkest fear is the fear of signing away your soul, also known as thedevilmademedoitphobia) To try to make your stay more enjoyable, I suggest the CE version, which gives you the freedom to search for Ghosts of past hotel guests, Morphing Beyond objects and Morphing Phobias. The owner would appreciate your cooperation in returning his missing family Crest pieces as well, so if you come across any of these fragments, kindly assemble the crest and return the screensaver, no questions asked. Also for your entertainment, the hotel has arranged some wicked Hidden Object Scenes, prior guests say they are absolutely to die for! Former guest Mary had this to say: "I absolutely loved the HOP scene where I found objects that matched the silhouetted shapes of animal prints, one in particular appears to belong to some sort of beast!" One of our favorite hotel guests, James, had this to say about his experience: " I had no choice but to dig through a mucky fountain as I searched for items to save my life" One of our permanent guests Frank also adds: "The hotel's bar is in shambles, I had to move items just to find two of every ingredient so I could whip up my favorite spirit!" The puzzles are optional at this hotel, you won't be penalized for not participating in the game, however, it is strongly recommended that you give at least one of these games a try, if you want to have a more immersive experience: 1) Navigate through the hotel corridors to reach your mother using the hotel map to select the correct hallways and doorways. Caution, your deepest fears will come into play. 2) Place the flags according to the year they represent. 3) Find the correct path through the forest by rotating the compass until the correct group of prints that match the clues align, then choose the path the arrow points to. Please be cautious of things that go bump in the dark forest. 4) Place the owls in their correct color coded spots. (please ignore the fact that you just fed a spotted owl walnuts)...(because they don't eat nuts)...(they eat meat)....(but maybe he's just trying to overcome his fear of eating the same thing a squirrel does)...(....just saying....) 5) Guide the mouse through the labyrinth by using directional arrows to plot the course and clicking the start button to test your solution. (do you think mechanical mice have fears?)(they probably have a fear of everything bigger than themselves, which is almost everything, a.k.a. thewholeenchilada phobia) 6) Follow the recipe to brew a soothing cup of tea to give to James because he's supposedly freaking out... but he looks perfectly fine to me. ( I fear people who are freaking out but appear normal. whatsupwiththat phobia) HAUNTED HOTEL GAMES AVAILABLE: Haunted Hotel (SE only 11-16-11) Haunted Hotel II: Believe the Lies (SE only 11-16-11) Ancient Bane (5-29-14) Charles Dexter Ward (6-10-12) Death Sentence (12-18-14) Eclipse (10-10-13) Eternity (4-24-15) Lonely Dream (SE only 11-25-11) Personal Nightmare (5-25-17) Phoenix (8-20-15) Silent Waters (9-17-16) The Axiom Butcher (4-30-16) The Thirteenth (12-24-16) The X (11-12-15) The Collector's Edition has 10 Wallpapers, 10 Concept Art pictures, 4 Music Soundtracks, 15 Achievements, Morphing Phobias, 20 Morphing Beyond Objects, 20 Hotel Crest fragments to assemble a Screensaver, 12 replayable Mini Games, 16 replayable Hidden Object Scenes, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Chapter, sleep tight, enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Things That Go Bump Good game play with interesting hidden objects and mini-puzzles. As others have stated the game had good graphics. It had the typical options of game play and modes of travel (transporting).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's not the Hotel California, but it's very, very close! Okay, so the graphics are little old school, but that fits with the game's mood and ambiance and does not detract from the overall enjoyment factor. Others have described the story and play-by-play, so I won't recreate their good efforts. A bonus for me in this game, being the old curmudgeon that I am, is that I get to play in my own gender for a change. Not that I have anything against female antagonists, who can be very capable and heroic, it’s just that I get a little tired of having to cross-dress, as it where. Background sounds, music, and voice-overs are all very well done, and certainly enhance the game-play experience. The map, as in all of the Haunted Hotel games, is a very good tool. The HO sequences are the usual mix, with enough of a twist so that they are not entirely run-of-the-mill. The same can be said of the mini-games. I played and reviewed the CE demo of this game and commented that not being a fan of CEs —which you already know if you’ve read any of my other reviews— I would wait for the SE game and buy that one. I have several of the Haunted Hotel games, and have now added this one to my collection. As always, my caveat is that you play the demo and decide for yourself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elephant Adds Another Winner to the Series This is posted after playing the entire game. I thoroughly enjoyed this game! Even though it had ghosts and other things that go bump in the night, it was fun beyond my wildest expectations. Graphics were really good. Everything was clear and even though it was dark, it went along with the theme of the game. Effects were very good and the voice overs were excellently performed. Just what I have come to expect from Elephant Games. The music was good and not intrusive at all. The thing I liked about it was the level of challenge. I loved being able to complete the majority of the mini games, which means I have either developed more patience or they were rather simple. I would bet on the latter. If you are one of those gamers who love challenging puzzles, I don't think you will care for this one. I think the only complaint with the minis would be the repetition. When I do a puzzle, I don't like to turn around and repeat it again at the same time. There were several of those. Along with that, there really wasn't much new with the puzzles. Put the dot in the colored hole, etc, etc, etc. You have several modes of difficulty and I chose the custom so I could have the hint and skip charge quicker. The interactive map was a big help, because it does get a bit confusing as to what needed done and where you need to go. I liked the story. One reason was it is a male lead. No need to go dress in my finest gown and heels to get into the part. We need more of these or at least be able to chose the gender of the player. When the story began I thought they had written my buddy James out of the storyline, but he was there in a minor role. I don't know why I like him so much, maybe it's the voice or just the character itself, but this series wouldn't be the same without him. Others well go into depth about the story itself, so I'll just leave it that there is continuity and it is very easy to follow. It had me hooked from the very beginning to the end. As always try the demo. If you want a game that is relaxing, yet exciting to play this is yours. Thank you Elephant Games for another winner in the series.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST FEAR? REVIEW FROM COMPLETED GAME AND BONUS You play Steven Blake to find your mother and sister who went missing 20 years ago. There is: * Voiceovers (with dialogue); * Casual, Advanced, Hardcore and Custom modes; * Interactive map. The graphics are very good - everywhere is clear to see and well defined. There are plenty of ghosts popping up and whizzing passed to keep you company throughout the game. Colour is good and the music is orchestral and piano which plays quietly in the background. I enjoyed the story line. Its not complicated so it makes it easy to concentrate on the game. The hidden object games are slightly interactive straightforward, silhouette and finding 6 pairs of items. These are all very easy to do and items are clear to see and grab. Each HOP only takes 2-3 minutes to do which you will do once. The mini-games are fun to do. I've seen them all before but I enjoyed doing them again. The marble game took me ages to do because I wasn't quite fast enough. I found I didn't need to use the interactive map at all because there are only a few scenes to accomplish before moving on, so there was no need to use it. All up the game, bonus and extras took me about 5 hours (without hinting or skipping anything). So do you get the CE or SE? The bonus game is about your father, George Blake, and Thomas Coldwell which is separate to the main game. There also 16 Achievements; 20 morphing objects, 20 puzzle pieces in the game and bonus and collecting items for the Fear Room which are all very easy to find. There is also a Secret Room with morphing objects to find. Overall a great game to play. A little on the easy side but definitely worth having a look at. Happy playing fishies.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gotta' find those keys! I just finished the SE version. Not bad for an SE but I have ambivalent feelings about this game. The story was great, voiceovers were real good, but the graphics were muddy; the music was more special effects oriented hardly any music per se, and it played over and over again, whereby I had to mute the sound or adjust the sound bars in the option feature of the game. I liked the concept of dealing with one's fears but in this game you will have to deal with others' as well. A nice variety of HOS and puzzles which were really good, I thought. I'm giving this game 3.75 stars. The jump-to map was good. Sometimes when clicking on an item I'd have to do it a couple more times and often had to situate my mouse a certain way before I could retrieve the object. That was a nuisance. The ambiance was a bit too dreary for my taste and had the mechanics of this game been a bit better I would have given it a higher score. I still recommend this game. Try it out. See for yourselves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really like the Haunted Hotel games, until now :-( I have played a lot of the Haunted Hotel games and have really enjoyed them. This one was really lacking. It felt like it was just sort of thrown together without much care. It started out promising, but, went down hill fast. Not scary at all, puzzles were easy, and there weren't really any new factors that I like so much about the previous ones. I think that the worst part was how short it was. I went through this whole game in less than 4 hours, and I play on the hardest levels. Very disappointing! Hope they do better next time!
