Mystery Case Files Ravenhearst

1 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Although this game has been available overseas via the net, it's finally hit the shelves in Australia and we all know that physical is better than virtual! I must admit that I have not played a hidden object game since high school and this was in the computer labs at school but interestingly enough, this genre has definitely changed for the better.

Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst.

10 July 2009
  • Excerpt: What is fun? Is it zipping through late night traffic, a hellish choir of sirens wailing behind you as the cops close in? Is it sawing through evil aliens, their viscera spraying onto the screen? Or is it plugging away at the same puzzle for hours only to discover that the answer was simpler than anything you had yet imagined?

Expert Review

23 May 2008
  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst is a downloadable game from Big Fish Games. At about 73 MB, the game downloads pretty quickly. The other side of that downloadable convenience is that Ravenhearst is not very complex graphically. There are no environments; rather, the game is a series of puzzles. The screen is utterly littered with dozens of objects, out of which you must pick a list of things in order to progress.

  • Excerpt: is a puzzle game that lets you play the role of a detective sent--by the Queen of England, no less--to investigate a haunted mansion. You’re equipped with a flashlight, a bag for collecting clues, and a journal that once belonged to a resident of the house.

  • Conclusion: eine gelungene Mischung aus Wimmelbild- und Point-and-Click-Spiel geboten, welches nach den ersten Durchspielen glatt zu einer weiteren Runde einlädt. Fans der Genre kommen hier auf jedem Fall auf ihre Kosten. Kauftipp!

Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst

8 May 2011
  • Summary: Natürlich folgt auch hier wieder ein Standard-Fazit, denn auch dieses Spiel erfindet das Wimmelbild-Genre natürlich nicht neu. Der Spielablauf ist hinreichend aus anderen Genrevertretern bekannt, wirklich innovative Elemente gibt es nicht zu entdecken. Dafür kann aber die interessante Geschichte, die mit toller Optik und durchaus gefälligem Sound zu überzeugen weiß, punkten.

Mystery Case Files : Ravenhearst

14 July 2009
  • Conclusion: En conclusion, Mystery Case Files : Ravenhearst fait preuve d’originalité sur de nombreux points : le scénario, les casse-têtes, les puzzles, etc. Malheureusement, cette prise de risques n’est pas vraiment payante… Les nombreuses répétitions au sein du gameplay finissent par lasser et la réalisation en dents de scie n'est pas toujours au niveau.
  • Pros: Des casse-têtes originaux et marrants , Un scénario plein de rebondissements et de suspense , Des puzzles représentant des moments-clefs de l’histoire , Des bruitages mettant le joueur parfaitement dans l’ambiance
  • Cons: Des graphismes fort sombres et sans vie , Des objets cachés répétitifs , Une durée de vie relativement courte , Des musiques répétitives , Un début d’histoire assez simpliste
