    One of the most beautiful hidden object games to come out in 2010, Mystery of Mortlake Mansion features superb animation and a unique hand-drawn art style presented with detailed high-resolution graphics.

    Typical of haunted house stories, you receive an urgent letter from a distant relative and soon find yourself locked in a mansion trying to find a way out. As you progress from room to room solving puzzles and finding objects to open doors and secret pathways, it's not long before you discover the owner was working on a way to travel to another dimension. Without spoiling any surprises, the things you soon discover are quite innovative and make for a unique and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    While there are some spooky ghosts and villains it's not a violent game so all but the youngest kids should enjoy it. The hints come easy for casual players like me so hidden object pros may want to jump straight to the harder difficulty if they want a challenge. Puzzles weren't particularly difficult except some "web untangling" puzzles toward the end. If you find yourself stuck you can skip the puzzle after a brief time. The game features a clever map system that highlights room(s) with puzzles that need solving. You can also jump from room to room via the map if you don't want to backtrack through the mansion.

    My gripes are minor. First, the voice actors talk really slow and are not very convincing. Some of the voices start to grate on the nerves after a while. Fortunately, you can skip through them. You'll also run into a few odd translation errors on occasion as this is a foreign made game. Finally, even though I loved the unique art, it is quite different from the norm and may be off putting for some so check the screenshots for examples to help you decide.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Game Bug February 20, 2011
    Verified Purchase
    I am extremely sorry to bust the near perfect rating for this game because I really liked it and would have easily given it a 4 star or more rating.

    But halfway (or so) through I encountered a problem that didn't allow me to proceed. After searching the internet high and low for a solution, a patch, etc., I came up with nothing. This leads me to believe that inadvertently I must have done something to cause this behavior. My guess is that I played in a slightly different order than the programmers had intended, thus bringing it to an unintended but sadly complete halt.

    During the game one goes from room to room, completing tasks and collecting objects, most importantly so-called Ingredients, which must be placed in an altar in order to obtain a key which is then placed in a corresponding lock. Altogether 6 keys, each of a different color, must be collected. The game has a map that the player can consult to see where he is at any given time, which rooms have been completed, which rooms still have "active tasks", and which rooms "might have new tasks".

    My problem came after successfully obtaining the second key. Instead of five required Ingredients for the third key, I was only able to collect four. None of the rooms on the map showed up as having "active tasks" anymore, and only two with "might have new tasks". However, when clicking on the Hint Function I got the message "There is nothing to do here at the moment". I got this message in every single room, even the ones with "might have new tasks". No exception. I also searched for walkthrus on the web and for the life of me cannot figure out which scene I missed - to me it looks that I visited and solved them all. Carefully moving my cursor around these rooms to find "active" areas also yielded nothing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finding the hidden objects is only half of the fun. January 22, 2011
    By Chris N

    I am fairly new to PC games. Based on favorable reviews, I bought Gardenscapes and really like it. When I saw this new release from Playrix Games I downloaded it as well.
    It has similar terrific hidden object graphics as Gardenscapes. This is a much more interesting game however. There are other types of games to complete in order to "solve the mystery of the mansion."
    The characters and their "messages" are a bit strange (but it is a haunted house after all).
    Overall I would highly recommend this game.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of the better hidden object games March 28, 2011
    By Kevin
    Verified Purchase
    I've been playing a lot of HOGs in the past couple months as a break from more heavy duty games like Modern Warfare and Dragon Age. They're great to play on the fly, and are generally just a fun distraction. The problem I've been finding is that some of them are pretty simple and repetitive. Mystery of Mortlake Mansion is NOT simple and repetitive. I love this game.

    PROS:

    - Robust, if not original, storyline that will appeal to fans of haunted houses, and gothic literature.
    I honestly didn't really care about the plot too much; the puzzles and hidden object segments kept me enthused.

    - Fast game engine.
    This game runs great, with rich and atmospheric settings, good soundtrack and quality animations throughout and there's no stuttering or "thinking" icon pauses here. The game runs fast and lean, which helps immerse you into the experience.

    - Excellent graphics and well-positioned animations.
    The art is really top-notch, both whimsical and a little sinister at the same time. I am absolutely in love with the gear-work present in some of the puzzles. The animation totally accentuates the gameplay --it doesn't get in the way. Some of the puzzle presentations are really quite beautiful actually. The opening graphic sequence literally makes me crack a smile each time.

    - Efficient play-through.
    By this I mean that you don't have to do a lot of sitting through animated cut-aways and cinema breaks. The game is fluid, with animation occuring while you are still able to click through scenes. There's not a lot of bloat on this game, it's all meat.

    - Great interactivity.
    Do you like Magic Encyclopedia? If yes, then you'll love this game.
