Excerpt: Disney’s The Haunted Mansion is many things. It is both a memorable theme park ride and another box office bomb that Eddie ‘Stuka’ Murphy would rather forget. If you’ve been praying to the Gods for a videogame adaptation, be prepared to sacrifice your first-born and settle in for ectoplasmic ecstasy.
Excerpt: After stepping into my apartment, it's blatantly obvious that I'm a big fan of Disney's Haunted Mansion . I can't explain it, but the draw of the mansion is just that damn good. Maybe it's the old, yet still amazing effects scattered throughout the ride or the catchy 'Grim Grinning Ghosts' that serenades you throughout the ride. Regardless, I was pretty happy when I heard TDK was doing a game based on the Mansion.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Though not puzzles per se, given that there is nothing to 'solve' as such, the range of smart, ingenious challenges displayed within The Haunted Mansion bodes well for High Voltage's future endeavours. It's just a pity that in this title they're marred by such generic adventure mechanics.
Conclusion: The sound is quite atmospheric, with some nice ghostly noises, the friendly ghosts have good voices. But the sound of the "balls" from your lantern gets very repetitive. Difficult to recommend then, although this game is clearly a copy of the rather good Luigi's Mansion on Gamecube, and whilst the PS2 has nothing quite like that game except possibly the considerably more grown-up Ghosthunter, The Haunted Mansion doesn't really match up to either in any respect.
Pros: Possibly good for the young ones in the family.
Excerpt: "The Haunted Mansion on Raren Xboxille kehittämän Grabbed By The Ghoulies pelin tyylinen kummitusseikkailu ja käytännössä yhtä hyvä joskin hieman eri syistä. Pelistä ei varsinaisesti löydy mitään suurta vikaa, mutta pelin ihan hauskaa ja rentoa pelattavuutta pilaavat osittain pelin jonkinasteinen itseääntoistavuus, sekä liiallinen helppous.
Pros: + Hauska pelata, + Toimiva grafiikka, + Äänimaailma
Cons: - Pelattavuus toistaa itseään, - Turhankin helppo
