You are so RIGHT, I was very disappointed. If I had known how short and easy to solve it was I would never have wasted my money on this game I would have much rathered by something else. Even when the final closing scene came on I was in disbelief.

I totally agree. I wish I hadn't wasted my money. The game was too short, pretty well handed you the clues on a platter. Didn't didn't have to give things much thought. It told you exactkly what to do and the mini-games, a 5 year old could figure them out.

We, my hubby and I, throughly enjoyed this game together, we played at the same time! And if we couldn't find an object, we helped each other, Or got stuck in a puzzle we helped each other. Comicsellar gave it to us for Valentines Day, it was the best gift we ever got! For once we found a way to enjoy things totally together, hubby on his PC and Me on mine. Now we try all of our shared HO games together, and believe you me it was plenty long for that! We will look forward to more relaxed played Ho games, like this one!

I was very disappointed in this game, PLUS I w2as charged 9.99 when I understood it was supposed to be 6.99...
Return to Ravenhurst on the other hand was every bit worth the money

I agree with most of you, too short, too easy and left you with no sense of adventure, and I buy a lot of games from BF. Try Totem Tribe for a good game. Great for the explorers out there.

this game was easy and far too short, it makes me want to be very cautious about buying more in the future

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.


ADTech...launching into a "proffesional opinion" on this game was just not worth my time. I had already wasted enough of it dealing with customer service to get my credit back. I didn't claim it was my responsibility to tell people anything about this game, it's simply a post to warn others...take it or leave it. It looks like most people agreed.

so right guys and gals WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY! I played for an hour free..bought the game and 20 minutes later it was over. my first time buying and i have to rethink this. are all games the same way? RIP OFF is the best way to describe this game.

I cannot believe I did not think about checking out the forum on this game before I purchased it!!! I have purchased through Big Fish before and have been satisfied. This game is a total RIP OFF! I agree with everyone, it is too short and says "to be continued"..I do not intend to purchase the next installment. I never dreamed that it would not take you to the end of the game where you find out the outcome. I am very disappointed in this game.

I am so undecided.......everyone seems to think the games is so short and not worth it. Yet it has been a top seller for a long time and the description is so good. Is it really that short after the demo? Why does it keep selling so well? Even Gamezebo did not give it a great review.

I have seen posts here that say that the first Haunted Hotel game was better than this one..Yet, I have also seen posts in other forums that say the OPPOSITE.....You can not take one forums word for how good/bad a certain game is...Try the demo and if you do not have a feeling you will enjoy it, simply don't buy it.....60 Minutes should be enough time for anyone to know if they will enjoy playing or not...

Maybe it depends on the type of player you are? I wondered too and bought it anyway one day and I did not think it was as bad or as short as made out here. I am not a fast player though- I take my time and don't rush or skip puzzles.

I thought the game was fine.

FUNGAMEPLAYER -- these are my personal favorites --- James Patterson's "A Ddarker Shade of Grey", Lost in the city, Mushroom Age was fun and Siberia was very interesting but I needed a walkthrough to complete it! I tend toward hidden object or puzzle games.

As far as HH2--- I didn't enjoy HH1 all that much so don't think I'll go to 2. In HH1, I though the lighting made it very dfficult to see objects, I hated the energy thing and the letter thing. I'm just not good with hand/eye coordination. I thought the story was weird and didn't keep my interest.
