When I realized that the Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects is a series, I decided to try the Ravenhearst game. The storyline is that as the nephew of an eccentric inventor who lives in the Ravenhearst manor and who has disappeared (or died, couldn't remember which), you have to find the clues to the diary left by the latter so as to solve the mystery surrounding the manor for so long.
Like its Mystery Case Files brethren, the game has superb graphics quality that can initially overwhelm first-time players due to the obvious painstakingly detailed images embedded within each place. The beauty of Ravenhearst is the added animations within the places where you have to find objects and clues, adding to the spooky ambiance of the game. Ghosts (not very scary, in my opinion) pop out of nowhere should you try to just click on spots around the rooms randomly (there are a lot of rooms to search within the manor, each with a little surprise for players).Sound effects are way better as compared to Prime Suspects, which made me jump on several occasions as the first time I played this was in the middle of the night. Storyline, as described above, is as creative as all the others in the series. Overall, the game effects will effectively get you into the mood of the game, so watch out for signs of addiction. :))
Something to watch out for: After this came Madame Fate, but MCF creators said that they were gonna release MCF: Return to Ravenhearst this fourth quarter of 2008. Better watch out for it! I bet it'll be more amazing than all the others in the series!
