Haunted Past tells a simple, yet exciting ghost story with an excellent atmosphere in the form of a hidden object game with a few nice mechanics.

Long version:
A female protagonist in a haunted house unravelling a ghost story is basically hidden object game making 101. What makes Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts different is how the developers made sure that the player is interested and invested in their tale.
Their greatest tool was the pacing, which involves just enough backtracking to shake the feeling of being stuck in a corridor, but not too much to make anyone run around in circles (thanks to the room clearance indicators).

The game has no traditional puzzles, only item gathering point ‘n’ click style, and lots and lots of hidden object scenes. These two elements are often combined into single-room challenges, called ghost rooms, where you must find and hide items to use them later in the normal world.
Sadly, not even this abundance of hidden object scenes could save the play time that barely reaches two hours, which may be too short even for such an engaging game.

As far as hidden object games go, it's a decent one for the collection.

The HOG genre are all very similar in terms of plot lines and gameplay, so it's hard to review these kind of games in detail without all of these reviews sounding the same.

The plots are always treasure hunters, old time detectives or historians looking for a special artifact, a murderer or just plain ol' answers. They're always set in spooky houses, old ruins or other planes of existence. History is revealed, secrets are unraveled and generally just all that kind of stuff really.

Despite hidden object games being all very similar to each other, they are a guilty pleasure of mine as i do just enjoy the hidden object scenes and puzzles you find in these games.

This one is set in haunted house. You need to find what happened, whose behind it and destroy the evil entity. The story was interesting, it was nothing amazing but it kept me playing which is always good.

In terms of puzzles, there wasn't really any in this one. It was more so just clear each room and move on. I quite liked the pace of the game as i was only looking for a short few hour game to complete so it worked for me!

This game also has an interesting feature of being able to switch between two planes of existence. You can find items you need in the other realm and hide them somewhere for you to find in the real world. This kind of switches the gameplay up a little bit and it's always nice to play the slightly more unique HOGs.

In terms of the object finding, the scenes weren't too cluttered to the point your eyes hurt, and the items were well blended into the scenes. So all around good on that part in my opinion.

All in all it's a decent one, if you enjoy the HOG genre then this is definitely one you can whiz through and add to pile.


TL;DR : It's decent for a hidden object game, pretty standard but it's enjoyable.

Quite torn...

That describes what I am feeling about the game. First, it isn't a bad HOG. But it's very short (my 8 hours of playtime were caused by me, getting some rest and dozing off). Second the story is interesting. But the riddles and puzzles are quite easy to solve, some of them are literally self solving. The graphics look great, but some of the full screen animations do lag and the sound is at times, best described as... "crunchy" - though the voiceacting was very pretty.

If I follow my own Rules and Regulations this game lies in the 50% area, because there are good and bad things in the game, overall it would be a "Not Recommended" for this game. Which actually I will give. To clarify my stance with this game I will give the Pros and Cons and then describe why I don't recommend the game.

Pros:
  • Nice Voiceacting.
  • Pretty Graphics, though they show the age of the game.
  • Interesting Supernatural Story.
Cons:
  • Crunchy Sound.
  • Lagging Cutscenes, only the fullscreen scenes were affected in my case.
  • Though the story is interesting, it failed to build up enough suspense.
  • Riddles and Puzzles are far too easy. Some are really self solving (Urns, Sigils etc.).
  • Too short in playtime, remember this is a HOG with only limited replayability value.

Not Recommended

Given the age of the game, this game isn't all bad - but it lacks a lot which games of the genre and this age already had, there are a lot of similar games which did truly build up a suspense. The game also isn't quite perfect on case of technology, the lagging was encountered on all of my machines. The crunchy sound might have to do with some of the effect filters used, to make the voices sound ghostly. The too easy puzzles/riddles were only a small anoyance compared to the really short playtime (actually about two hours).

All in all this game is nestled in the 45 to 50 % Value, because all of the encountered problems and annoyances. If you want at all to try this one out, try to get it bundled, or at a sale. But, please don't make the mistake to gift this game to a newby of the genre, he might lose his interest in HOGs forever...

A short hidden object game with fairly easy puzzles. Beautiful graphics, eerie atmosphere.
Although the plot is a common theme amongst hidden object games, the story is rich and keeps the player interested.

7/10 because it has that typical HoG ending that leaves off feeling rather unfinished.

I'm not giving this a thumbs down because it's a bad game. In fact, it's an extremely fun game. However, it's also extremely short. When the game ended, I just sat there dumbfounded. I couldn't believe the game was over already and the story seemed incomplete - there were questions that never got answered. So I looked up the walkthrough on Gamezebo to see if I had missed anything. It turns out that there is a "collector's edition" with more to the story. So I DO recommend this game. But don't buy it on Steam. Buy it elsewhere and make sure it's the Collector's Edition. If you're a hidden object fan, you'll love this game.
