I agree with Mummypops and Gringojoy- thought this was a pretty good game!

I agree with everyone here. This was a good game but way too short. They need to add more to this game to make it worth playing. The first one was much better.

I also agree that I finished the game about 30 min after using the 1 hour demo and purchasing. I told my sister NOT to get the game as it is a waste of a credit. The first one was much better and I hope the game makers improve on the game immensely

I have to agree ... this was the shortest game I've ever bought (and I've bought plenty). I don't think I'll be buying more for quite a while. This was a complete waste of money.

Shorty after I made this post I sent an email to Bigfish customer service. It took 4 days to get a reply, but they gave me full credit on this game. It came in the form of a coupon to use for any game of my choice from this site. So kudos to bigfish for responding to customer DISsatisfaction.

DISAGREE STONGLY with rootbeer. this was a great game that was fun to play, Also feel that rootbeer did write a proffesional opinion of the game. If you did not like the game you should give specefic reasons as why you did not like the game, this was not done in this case. Also it is not your responsibility to tell people whether they should buy a game. You should only critique the game and then let people decide on their own. I have previously submitted a detailed critique of this game on previous occassions and so will not repeat them here. Unless you can write a proffessional critique that gives specific reasons that support your opinion then the post is of no value.

I'd have to agree with other posters who said this game is not worth the money. After playing it you are left with many questions that are left unanswered. For example: Why was the detective there in the first place?, Who is this person we are supposed to be looking for and other questions. This game was way too short. After downloading the demo I though there would be a lot more to it but after I bought the game it only took me a half an hour to solve! It was not all that challenging either. It was a very disappointing game! I even played the game twice to make certain I hadn't skiped any parts by mistake and found that I hadn't. It was a waste of money and time!

You can hardly call it a waste of time, since it can be solved in no time at all...lol. Graphics are not state of the art either. So not what I expected and the worst game I ever bought on Big Fish, though in general they have great games.

I've got to agree with just about everyone. Generally, I've been pleased with the games I've gotten from Big Fish, but this was extremely easy and unbelievable short. I definitely won't be buying any more Haunted Hotel games, if this is an example of the game - the visuals were fine, the puzzles not particularly challenging and, again, the entire game was way too short. Plus it seemed like I was looking for the same things in almost every scene.

I totally agree. I have bought HO games for less money (and equal money), and they have been much better value. This game is way too short, and the puzzles are far too basic. Compared to Return To Ravenhurst, The Clumsys, and all the Mystery Case Files games, this one is pathetic. I have complained to BFG, but am still awaiting a reply / explanation as to how they can charge so much for such a small game. What a rip-off!

Thank you everybody for the heads-up. I hate buying games that I finish in one day. What are your favorite - and looong - HO games? I already have all of the Mystery Case Files and absolutely love them. I'm looking for games that will satisfy the way those do. Thanks
