If the rating were available, I would give this game 4.5 stars. Overall, it's very good, and certainly more complete than the previous game from this publisher. The overall story line held up throughout, and the music was appropriately creepy. The HO scenes were mostly easy, although a few items were well hidden. There was no challenge to the puzzles, which was a bit of a disappointment. The map did what all good maps should: it allowed you to jump from one scene to another with one click of the mouse and also told you where there were actions still needing to be completed. My only real complaints are with the quality of the drawings (which were pretty rough) and the graphics, which still have a ways to go. If you're not sure what I mean, take a look at Nearwood, which has exceptional drawings and graphics. Otherwise, this is a well constructed game with all the elements you could wish for. I played in Expert mode, but because of the map, whatever mode you play in you will easily be able to know what you need to do. A very good game, although not for children, due to the nature of the storyline.
