Name: Haunted Hotel: Charles Dexter Ward Collector's Edition
Release Date: 11 June 2012
Developer: Specialbit Studio
Haunted Hotel series keeps getting better and better, yes, this sequel is better than the first, second or the third, but is it good enough for CE? The opening cut scene is very well done, with the use of live images and the help of fine voice acting; it was very promising as well as other cut scenes in the game! Unfortunately, graphics wasn't as great as we expected, they're lifeless and not very sharp! The story is quite interesting actually, the storytelling is great, the game features 3 Days of your investigation, it is nice to see the difference between days and the day after, thumb ups to the developer for that! What Haunted Hotel 4 fails is its gameplay, HOG scenes are nice and easy to find but without interactions? Also, the puzzles are old-types and slightly boring. The game also involves many back-and-forth walking which is also very annoying too! As for the music, it's good but not outstanding! It's highly possible for Haunted Hotel 4 to be a great game, it just has too many drawbacks that it does not feel like CE worthy!
