Haunted Hotel: Charles Dexter Ward Collector's Edition
25 September 2014
Summary: A nice treat for fans of HP Lovecraft--like me! :) Plot: Your brother, Charles Dexter Ward, has gone missing after inheriting a mysterious hotel. You travel to the hotel and search its grounds in an effort to find him, but instead find journal entries from another missing man, a reporter who was...
Summary: First of all: I do not know the other "Haunted Hotel"-games, so i cannot decide on whether this one is better or worse than the others. I just liked this one. It made me - and kept me - very curious about what happened and how to help the brother.
Summary: Hmmm, OK but nothing special. I won't repeat other comments, but the biggest complaint I have is that you have to find ingredients for a lot of elixirs and other concoctions. As a result, the inventory can get quite large and unwieldy, and you have to hold many items for long stretches of the game.
Summary: If you prefer point and click adventure games as opposed to hidden object games, but want something casual and not extremely challenging, this game is for you! The hidden object scenes in this game are few and far between. There are many varied locations, not just a hotel to explore.
Summary: This next installment in the Haunted Hotel line fails to deliver much excitement. While it trys to keep with the same storyline as the others, it comes off feeling disjointed and is played a little differently without all the inventions, etc.
Summary: A HO puzzle adventure following a typical dark story based on "I need to be immortal". Liked :) - reasonable interesting story that will keep you on going - true adventure like feeling - construct objects in the inventory - good graphics and sounds Not liked :( - absent map and mostly not useful...
Summary: From Specialbit Games comes another nod to H.P. Lovecraft in the form of an adaptation of his short story The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. This iHOG is very adventure heavy, puzzle-heavy, with a smattering of HO scenes.
Summary: I played this game after playing the Haunted Hotel III: Lonely Dreams and found this one to be awfully boring. It just seems like it goes on and on with the same routines after awhile. The dialog was translated poorly and too lengthy.
Summary: I think the game is ok, but i think it's lack of interaction and creativity, Echoes of the past if better than this one.. The level is seems like repetitive and no where ends, and the diary mode should be shorter with just few lines and plots..
