Bought this game for my significant other. When she wanted to play it I tagged along... Usually I'm not into those hidden object kinda games but this one amazed me by its quality. Also, something I did not expect: The story was really entertaining! I actually wanted to know how this one unraveled!!! Surprised? I was...

Grab it for your wife/girlfriend and play it with her... You'll see ;)

I didn't like this one as much as the Mark Twain one (which is the only other Midnight Mysteries game I've played so far).
I think this one was the first in the Midnight Mysteries series, and I can see how the series has improved over time.

It's not a long game, I've completed it and logged 4 hours and at least an hour of that time was spent afk.
It's definitely not as well balanced or visually attractive or as in depth as the Mark Twain installment of Midnight Mysteries.
This is predominantly Hidden Object and the few puzzles there are pretty much provide you with the answer so there's little point to them.

I chose recommend for this anyway because I'm not a big player of HO games, (although I do occasionally like ones that have a balanced mix of other things going on throughout to break up the monotony), but I'm sure if you are a hidden object fan then this one is worth adding to your collection, it's not a bad game and as far as the story goes it's still streets ahead of what passes for a story in most other HO games I've played.
Also, I think the fact Mumbo Jumbo recently updated this old game with bug fixes and to ensure compatibility with Windows 8 deserves a thumbs up.

I played this through in one sitting, so can confidently state that it is about three hours worth of playing time from beginning to end, give or take a little depending how good you are at hidden object games, if you use hints, and so on. I would not consider it to be worth the price with the short playing time, unless you really love the genre, but having gotten it in a bundle myself I definitely paid less than it was worth, so I can't complain about my cost. In any case, keep an eye out for a sale if you're interested.

As to the gameplay itself, it really is rather straightforward and not terribly challenging. There were only a handful of times when I had trouble finding something or solving a puzzle, only to find that the answer was basically right in front of my face, of course. Fortunately, if you do get stuck there is a hint system you can use to show you where an item is or the next step in a puzzle, so there's no reason for a relaxing game to become at all frustrating. Unfortunately, the ravens that you collect in order to add to your hint total are a little bit too plentiful, so that even using the hints whenever I was getting at all annoyed with the time spent searching, I still finished with ten or so remaining. Also, I would end up using a hint for kind of lame reasons, like not lining the next item in the puzzle up exactly right. In other words, it's a little bit touchy at times. Just remember, what you think is the solution probably is. You just may need to adjust your positioning slightly.

All of this being said, it is rather fun as far as hidden object games go, and that has never been a preferred genre of mine. As an Edgar Allan Poe fan, I found the concept of building the game around the mystery of his death to be intriguing, the overall story quite well done, and the gane performance flawless. I run Windows 8 and had absolutely no issues. So, this is definitely a nice way to have a few relaxing hours of casual gameplay with no time limits or losing or anything, when you're in the mood for that kind of thing.

I have to say; had I of played this ‘Midnight Mysteries’ game first (as a supposed to all of its sequels), I would probably have never ended up playing them! This is by far the worst game in the franchise; the inventory management is completely simplified and the puzzles are few and far between! This is basically a collection of Hidden Object scenes played one after the other, where occasional items can be used within that scene to open a box; or feed what looks like a stuffed monkey a banana (yes you read right) to be presented with another item to collect… The game is simple, repetitive, relatively tedious and unfortunately isn’t a well-blended hidden object game; meaning objects like a giant pen will be placed against a wall... This is something the other games really didn’t do too much of and frankly I appreciate the effort… If you’re going to get a Midnight Mysteries game; pass on this and get one of the others instead!

Довольно ленивый hidden object: вместо того чтобы прятать предметы на фоне с помощью цветовой маскировки - экран просто забит хламом не имеющим никакого отношения ни к локации, ни к истории. Игроку приходится постоянно искать мусор который так же не имеет отношение к сюжету, а кроме того половину он тут же выбрасывает. История не имеет почти никакого смысла, а выглядит игра изрядно мыльно и не выдержана в едином стиле.

Притом повествование можно было сделать намного лучше.
