This is an odd mystery game maybe better avoided than enjoyed by anyone and very very very short. The game is short and all puzzles can be skipped with hint buttons if stuck somewhere. Adjustable difficulty is nice but its the way the game is designed that is the weak point. Many of the hidden object puzzles have a colored filter over the entire screen making everything seem white, blue, or black. This is very straining to try and enjoy veteran players will find, while casual players spamming the hint button will probably just turn it off.

The story is good not that it matters this is a game, and the gameplay is where it breaks down. There is an interesting mechanic used of switching from the present to the ghostly past where you can move items from the past to the present. This is very interesting, would be nice to see some sort of mechanic like that used in future games. Doesnt feel very ghosty overall, not to spooky which is a downer for october scary gaming :(

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.

Short but sweet. It took a little over 4 hours to complete. The puzzles are fairly fun and the hidden object parts are decent. I was hoping for something more challenging but for five bucks I really can't complain. I literally ran through this one but I have recently finished a much harder game and that is probably why this one went so fast. The story is disjointed and such but the visuals are really nice. The music is decent and the atmosphere works well. This is a perfect game if you are bored and your finger needs to click for a few hours.

If you feel like a fast play hiden object/puzzle game then Realm of Ghosts could be for you. I love puzzles and hidden object games that have a strong storyline so I get a lot of play time and also have a choice of choosing differently so that the game has a good replay value. Haunted Past: Realm of Ghosts, bottom line is a fun but super short game as compared to other puzzle/ hidden object/mysteries I have played. Nice little game but not enough replay value for my tastes. I give it 2 out of 5. If the publisher would make it longer and a bit more detailed in the storyline it would be getting higher marks from me but as it stands I stick by my rating.

Straightforward hidden object game, nice-looking scenes. Has a story. No bonus scenes. There are only a few puzzle parts and they are pretty simple, plus the hidden object scenes have distinct objects, so nothing frustrating.

It's an ok game. I loved the settings and the transition between the past and present same outline but different details. However the reason for summoning the evil spirit lacked conviction -loyalty by servants?! really now. Anyway I would recommend it if you like HO and if it's on sale.
