Name: Haunted Train: Frozen in Time Collector's Edition
Release Date: 10 May 2015
Developer: Deep Shadows
Unlike the first game and the series' title, only a few parts of this sequel actually sets on the train - since the majority of the storyline takes place in the smalltown of Farrington. The storyline here is nothing extremely unique nor overly-exciting; still, it managed to capture our attention from the start to the end through some interesting events and well-developed characters.
The visuals in Haunted Train: Frozen in Time looks a little bit old-school, with vivid colors and a somewhat flat scenery. Regardless of that, we were pretty impressed with the quality of the graphics in general and the mysterious atmosphere of the game. Besides, the soundtracks are very neatly-executed and they really help build up the suspense in the game. Similarly, the voice-overs are top-notch and suit the characters very well.
On the other hand, the gameplay of Haunted Train: Frozen in Time is rather weak. Although the adventure aspects of the game are expertly put together, they offer nothing particularly challenging or innovative. The hidden object scenes are mundane interactive lists, and they do repeat themselves at times. Moreover, most of the puzzles are the typical ones we have played a million times before.
However, there is one special feature in the gameplay - the Chronometer. This high-tech device needs to be used from time to time in the game, each time launches a hidden object style mini-game which is fairly entertaining.
Despite the fact that Haunted Train: Frozen in Time has quite a decent length of roughly 4 hours, and another hour or so for the bonus chapter - the Collector's Edition is very weak. The bonus content only featured a Strategy Guide, Wallpapers, Achievements, Collectibles and Soundtracks.
Overall, Haunted Train: Frozen in Time might not be the most original game ever, but it is still enjoyable in its own rights. Nonetheless, we highly recommended the Standard Edition since the Collector's Edition does not seem worth the price to us - but again, try it for yourself!
