Summary: Parents need to know that this game hasn't yet been rated by the Entertainment Software Rating Board, but falls in line with past Mystery Case Files adventures that range from "Everyone 10+" to "Teen." Return to Ravenhearst has some potentially disturbing imagery for kids, including ghosts of children (played by real actresses), statues that appear to come alive and a dead woman's skeleton in a casket.
Conclusion: At the end of the day, which could take anywhere from six to ten hours to reach (depending on how liberally the hints option is used), it’s obvious that Return to Ravenhearst isn’t your typical adventure game. Like a modern day 7th Guest, it offers up a host of familiar puzzles with a splash of hidden object sequences that provides an engaging diversion without being too overbearing.
