Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst Review

Review by Sara

With its colorful interactive graphics, lively plot line and impressive game length, Return to Ravenhearst is one of the best hidden objects/adventure combinations to date.

Beautiful Graphics

Wander about the manor grounds, searching the haunted mansion and nearby areas to uncover the ghostly secret of Ravenhearst. Expect beautifully constructed scenes with intricate detail and unique objects to find such as DNA!


The graphics themselves are a sight to behold, offering vivid colors and animated backgrounds in which streams flow, animals move and the weather shifts at will. Ghosts roaming the manor are live action actors edited to appear eerily transparent which blends perfectly into the scenery.

Lots of Locations to Search

Mini-puzzles are adequately challenging and must be completed to unlock a new area or object. Some items are out of proportion and are difficult to spot, and all items always remain in the same location which reduces the re-playability of the game. However, the game itself is very long, with over 150 locations to search and countless puzzles and challenges to complete, so you needn't fret over these small detractors.

Conclusion - Excellent Value

The creativity of Mystery Case Files – Return to Ravenhearst is truly astounding and the challenges it presents through object hunting, puzzle completion and game navigation make it a worthwhile adventure to all audiences.
