Summary: When I first heard of this game, it was before its official release, they had a demo of it at the Innoventions attraction at Disneyland Resort. Being an ultra Disney fan, I really wanted it, but at the young age of 12, could not afford it. My dad rented the game for me once, and I played through a few of the rooms with my younger brother before we got too scared and turned it off. Now, 10 years later, I came across it on Amazon.
Summary: This game was a lot of fun for me. It was difficult on "Nightmare" mode and easy on "Easy", so in that respect it can be played by nearly anyone. The game takes place in an amazing-looking digital Haunted Mansion (Disneyland version, which means no Library and no Vincent Price). The details are GREAT, even down to the portraits on the wall, the wallpaper, the characters, the settings, etc.
Summary: This game is really fun and very challenging, but even choosing the easiest difficulty level can lead to a lot of frustration if you can't figure out the technique that is required to finish a level (the book-walking in the conservatory is just one example that had our 12-year-old frustrated to tears; I am fairly computer-savvy and this challenge--even at the easiest difficulty setting--took me about an hour).
Summary: This is a great game for people who are good with puzzeles and examining tiny details. The average gamer- kid or adult- would probobly have the same difficulty with it as anybody else. Can be a bit spooky at times; not reccomended for kids 6 and under. Rent first- you too could be trapped in the mansion! Bwah Ha Ha!
