I've played ALL of the Midnight Mysteries but this is the first one I own because it is definitely worthy of adding this HO/mystery adventure to my library. I cross referenced all accounts surrounding Houdinis's death & there is much controversy & speculation regarding this and Mumbo Jumbo did a superb job w/the story line of this game w/the cast of characters. The graphics are crisp & the visual & sound effects are excellent...big improvement over the previous MM series. Hidden object scenes have cleverly hidden objects & the puzzles & mini games range from fairly easy, time consuming to a bit challenging. The skip button takes over 2 mins. to power up. The flow of the game is smoothly done--NICE! HO scenes, puzzles & mini games are meaningful to the story line. There is limited back & forth but only in each location...eg. Bess's home, France, the train etc. There are two achievement awards w/in the game--40 clovers will give you the bonus of extra HO play & ravens will give you extra hints for the game. The game is fairly lengthy--over 3 hours of entertainment. I recommend this game to own--enjoy the FUN!
