This isn't your run of the mill HOG game. It has a really good story line with dazzling graphics and atypical game play. There are a lot of puzzles and places to investigate. The soundtrack is very well done; the only thing it lacks are voice overs. I definitely will be checking out more Midnight Mysteries titles in the future.

I'm not a big fan of this game. It was just OK.

Review based upon finished game with all but one achievement (although I ended up with 53 of 52 needed ravens).

This is the fourth Midnight Mystery and the only Deluxe Edition offered on this site, which means we do get a Strategy Guide with the game, but no bonus gameplay (save for unlimited mode). This time around it's about the famous magician Harry Houdini - his wife cannot contact him in the afterlife, and materializes in front of you so that you help her out and find her husband's murderers. What has Arthur Conan Doyle to do with that?

The Good:

+ nice story
+ achievements
+ unlimited mode (I strongly recommend to practice HO scenes in this mode to have a chance to finish one scene in less than one minute)
+ some baffling magic tricks
+ they try some scary stuff (no easily frightened, so didn't shriek, but some might so)
+ diverse mini games...

The Neutral:

o ...but all of them require little to no thinking
o still no voiceovers
o only 7 different HO scenes

The Bad:

- some achievements do not really work (I only got the 70 clovers one on the 76th clover, and did not get the raven one despite finding one more than required)

Bottom Line: This game holds up to the other parts in the series, but I was more interested in the Witch Trials and Mark Twain. I recommend reading Houdini's biography (at least on Wikipedia) to fully appreciate the game.

The game itself was good as far as the graphics and quality, but I found it a bit tedious and boring. I think I am just tired of the dark games with the same theme...they are all beginning to look the same. If you are into this sort of game, this one was a very high quality game.

This game has one of the best story-lines in a hidden object game I've seen in a long time. It is constantly keeping my attention, and making me want to go back for more. It is certainly not just another one of the same-old, same-old: the writers did an excellent job with this one! There are surprises around every corner, and I like how real magic tricks are thrown in, as well as real historical events. Many of the puzzles are uniquely challenging, although not impossible. I haven't had to skip one yet. It's entertaining and well-made, so I highly recommend it!
