Summary: This game was fun, but not much of a challenge. My favorite parts of games such as these, are the puzzles and door locks that I have to crack. In that respect, some of the door locks were a bit of a challenge. Some of the hidden items could be challenging, and the storyline is interesting. It rather pales in comparison to the next two in the series.
Summary: If I had played Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst (MCF:R) early in my casual gaming career, i.e., before Mishap: An Accidental Haunting (great game!), I would have rated MCF:R as super cool, niffy, neat o. MCF:R is pretty cool. It is an hidden object game(HO) with some puzzles throw in. You shift among HO scenes effortlessly. The music, graphics, and sound effects are outstanding for a casual game. Voices pop up. It sounds like a haunted house soundtrack.
Excellent if you mostly like to find hidden objects

Summary: This is primarily a hidden object game with some fun brain challenges included. It has quality graphics and sound. While it is very good for what it's designed to be, I gave it 4 stars because I found it to be a bit repetitive after a while. You are supposed to be a detective looking for clues and pages of Emma Ravenheart's diary to figure out what happened to her.
An amazing but slightly too repetitive hidden object game

Summary: The "Mystery Case Files" series of computer games has made a name for itself by being some of the best hidden object games around, and in the case of some of the more recent games, they're starting to branch out into the adventure game world, as well. However, "Ravenhearst," the 3rd installment in the series, is a hidden object game with a few logic puzzles mixed in for fun.
Summary: Of all the seek and find games I've played, this is perhaps the best for the price. Not only were there many rooms to explore (32) but there were several, challenging mini games and a story that progressed well (even though it was predictable). I liked the foreboding atmosphere which was as haunting inside as it was outside with it's creepy music and background noises.
Summary: I like hidden object games. This was well rated. It had great puzzles that opened rooms and good hidden object screens, cluttered but not overwhelming. The clueless, helpless female story was a turn off.
Liked the Sequel Better, but good search and find game.

Summary: I purchased and played the sequel, 'Return to Revenhearst,' first and enjoyed it very much. The original is not as good as the sequel in my opinion, but it is more creative than some search and find games, with different 'Rube Goldburg' type puzzles and a pucture puzzle to put together to complete the diary entry in almost every level.
Summary: Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst takes players back to Ravenhearst Manor, a mysterious 19th century mansion constructed by Charles Dalimar as a symbol of affection for his love, Emma Ravenhearst. In the first visit to the mansion, taking place within the hit game Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst, players explored the haunted dwelling and pieced together the mystery of the mansion's now-deceased namesake.
Excerpt: The first of the trilogy of the Ravenhearst story, Mystery Case Files, Ravenhearst is a fantastic story. This is where it all begins and where you get to learn about the tragic story of the once magnificent house. So, the story starts when you, the Master Detective, is asked to investigate the mystery surrounding the Ravenhearst Manor.
Pros: Great Story, Simple Graphics, Good Array Of Puzzles
