Midnight Mysteries: Salem Witch Trials is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 60.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well done! Great animations, awesome story, very well done. I love the little bonuses, finding hidden clovers and crows. It just adds to the searching fun. Midnight Mysteries games are the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Addictive, exciting adventure story Finished this over 3 days. Loved the storyline. Many games on big fish have very basic plot lines, but this one is excellent, interesting and combines creepy moments with historical detail and interesting settings. Exactly the right mix of adventure, HO scenes and other puzzles and challenges. As well as completing the main story you can unlock other features in the game. There is an unlimited HO mode by collecting clovers throughout the game. There an achievement for finding every single raven in the game, one for getting to the end without getting a 'black cat' (black cats appear if you randomly click on the screen), One for completing every HO without using the magic lantern hints, and many more. The game looks good. There are maps and a journal but they only provide basic information, you have to work things out for yourself. The hint system is interesting. You show your raven an item from your inventory and it shows you a picture of where you need to use it. What it does NOT do is literally guide you to the next task you need to complete. This means that you do miss things from time to time, and have to go back to places to see if there are any objects you need that you did not spot the first time. My advice... you can open many drawers and cupboards in the scenes. Make sure you click on them all, just in case you miss something vital. I really enjoyed playing this and definitely will be buying the other games from the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Salem Witch Trials I love all the Midnight mysteries' games! They all have a plot that envolves a ghost! This game has wonderful graphics and sounds. Length wise this game is great. I think its nice and long with lots to do. I couldnt wait to see what happened next. If u run out of hints u can always get more by finding a raven. I truely love this game!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the Best Games ever Midnight Mysteries: Salem Withch Trials is one of the best games I have ever played. The storyline is great, the graphics and the sound quality are perfect. It's a game that keeps your attention for hours, the game is very long but it worth untill the last second. I hope they can make another Midnight Mysteries sequence soon. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from challaging Good game with good HOG. Moves you around to find clues and makes you pay attention to be able to solve the area so you can go to the next area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midnight Mysteries Strikes Gold Again Stealing the plot from the movie Anonymous was ingenious. Although I don't like re-writing or questioning historical facts the game tapped into those emotions which made for a more entertaining experience. You know when something is good when you can't stop thinking about it and want to play. Overall, Midnight Mysteries are the better Hidden Object Games (HOG) out there, the Native American connection was lame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a good bit of historical fact mixed with conjecture in this fascinating game in this hidden object puzzle thriller, American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne has supposedly died during a freak snow storm. was he murdered? since you are a detective with a particular affinity for ghosts and time travel, Hawthorne's ghost is asking you for help to unearth the cause of his death and to expose the secrets of Salem’s witches. graphics: wonderful. beautifully detailed. splendiferous blend of hidden objects scenes and puzzles, combined with a mystery thriller storyline. hidden object scenes are refreshingly neat -- almost no junk piles here! some of the hidden objects must be assembled before they can be crossed off the search list or before they can be added to your object inventory. some of your inventory items languish for quite some time before they are used. there is no click penalty. puzzles are varied and some are challenging since the instructions for what to do are minimal. music and sound effects: there is no music that i recall but the developers did make good use of ambient sounds (wind and calling crows, for example), there are special sound effects that accompany ravens and clovers and there is the sound of a quietly ticking watch in the background too. storyline: fantastical tale but the basic facts are well-researched. for example, it's true that Hawthorne really did live in Salem (and his family were active in the witch "trials"), Hawthorne and US president Franklin Pierce were friends, it's also true that they met whilst attending Bowdoin College, and Hawthorne really did die in the month of May whilst traveling with Pierce. the developers' alternative idea about the cause of Hawthorne’s death is tightly plotted and includes enough historical detail to make their story truly captivating -- and it made me dig a bit to better learn about Hawthorne’s life and the actual facts known about these events. a really engaging way to get people interested in history. also includes time travel, which i usually find tedious, but the developers use it well in this game to develop their story. gameplay: there's no hand-holding in this game: no strategy guide is included (although i don't think it necessary to this game, you can purchase it separately). there is a journal and a map, and hints are available in the form of ravens (click on a raven in a scene and you are awarded one hint, which is added to your hint meter). you also need to click on clovers during the game to unlock an unlimited hidden object mode, a "must" for HO fans. there is no sluggishness at all during the game, nor during scene transitions. an interesting feature is the meter that shows the percent of the game played thus far -- this is the first time i've seen this. my interaction: one hour demo. (the game has only one mode of play.) this is the second midnight mysteries game i've played and like the first, it's just wonderful; historical fiction with cute little innovations here and there. this game series has caught my attention and probably is my favourite series in the HOPA genre offered here at Big Fish. i've added this game to my "must purchase" list. i think you will also enjoy this game -- and you should check out the entire midnight mysteries series!
