Name: Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion
Release Date: 03 April 2014
Developer: G5 Entertainment/Gestalt Games

The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion is definitely not a mind-blowing HOPA experience. It has a predictable story centered around the theme of ghosts and spirits. The developers did well on implementing those aspects in the game; the atmosphere is very spooky with creepy sound effects and chilling background music. The quality of the graphics is high, all of the scenes are sharp and detailed. The special effects are professional and add some value to the game.

Furthermore, the gameplay is solidly entertaining. Although the hidden object scenes are standard at their best, they are nice and easy to play. The puzzles are not unique; however, they tie in the plot really well and offer some creative twists that make them much more engaging.

On the other hand, Paranormal Agency 2 lacks several features that are essential for today's HOPA. There no voice-overs and there is no interactive map. That might not be a concern if the game does not involve absurd amount of backtracking. To make the problem even worse, the transition in the game is incredibly slow which comes to be extremely frustrating. Nonetheless, it has  reasonable length and 20 achievements to earn.

Paranormal Agency: The Ghosts of Wayne Mansion is an above average game that could have been great if not for its plain story and excessive backtracking.
