Mostly a HOG

Summary: I had played the other 2 games in this series and expected this one to be similar. I had some of the same visuals but unlike the other 2 was mostly a HOG which I am not terribly fond of. I don't mind them interspersed in the game but I do not like when there is one after the other.
Summary: I really like the way the game plays on Haunted Houdini better. Haunted Houdini is 2011 or 2012 and it has more storyline and problem solving than this one. This one is a lot of hidden object finding. This was one of the earlier games to come out in 2009.
Summary: Typical of every HOG, the story pretty much takes a back seat to the gameplay. Here you are trying to solve the mystery surrounding the death of Edgar Allan Poe. Not as compelling as you might hope.
Summary: the game is great, maybe for newb's. kids would love the game, 8 and up. i don't consider myself a gamer, but for some reason in my old age, gaming is what keeps my mind active. the game is somewhat hard and the mystery is to find out what happened to him.
Summary: This would be a great game for the first time gamer of this type of game, Hidden objects, seek and find. It really guides you along the way, there are also a lot more Hidden object scenes than anything else. The puzzles are on the easy side to moderate. You can't really get lost either.
Summary: If you like HOG games you should love this one. There are so many objects to find it seems that's all this game is about. You don't really have to follow what's going on as the game leads you through everything. The few puzzles included are too easy and the graphics aren't very good.
Summary: Other than the story line, there's nothing really wrong with the game. I think beginners would probably enjoy it. The atmosphere is spooky. The graphics are nice and the puzzles and HO scenes are fairly easy.
Summary: This game is basically broken into 5 major parts. In the first you're mucking around in the cemetery around Poe's grave. I like this because you got to do grave rubbings, which I used to enjoy in real life before I found out that you can degrade the headstone by doing them.
Summary: This was a bit different than I thought it would be and at times I found it a bit confusing as it seemed to go in 2 different directions. I enjoy HO games but this one isn't one I'd play over and over.
