Classic Computer Game, But is it Good?
28 August 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with the other comments here on why the game really isn't good. In fact, the first time I played it, I wrote scathing posts on AOL years ago about how bad it was. However, I've since found that I enjoy playing the game just to look at the mansion. That much I enjoy. The entire game was shot on a blue screen and everything you see, all the sets have been computer generated. That is the uniqueness of the game. As far as scary or good horror writing, no. It's okay as an interactive horror movie. If you play it as such, you'll probably enjoy it. But if you have in mind to play an actual game, forget it. This thing should have only been billed as an interactive horror movie. You can't really call the few clicks that you do game play. I suggest you pick it up cheap somewhere and just try it as an interactive horror movie. For real gameplay, you're better of with Realms of the Haunting.
