A very plotted HO game, you are a supernatural investigator sent to discover what has been going on at a military hospital, which has been partially destroyed in an explosion when you get there. You gradually pick up documents that reveal the disturbing truth as well as encountering the 'patients' still inhabiting the 'abandoned' hospital.

The game has a lot of different locations, numerous hidden object scenes and several puzzles, though there are more of the more basic 'use fire extinguisher on fire' type problems than in many of these games. The amount of locations can be a problem as it does leave you with a lot of places to search it you are unsure where to go next, a little frustrating at times but it did make the game longer, even if I did have to go to every location and hit 'hint' at one stage to proceed. The mini game puzzles were fairly easy in this game for the most part, but in a game this complex that's not that bad a thing. I'm having difficulty expressing why I've given this game 4 stars let me list a few of it good points: it's plotted, it took a good while to complete, it was satisfying to play, you get to stop a truly evil baddie. On the other hand it has average graphics, of the 'painted' type, not anything outstanding but nothing to make you wince either, and it can get frustrating finding the object you've failed to pick up.

You gradually collect a dossier of information to read that reveals what has happened and gives you clues on how to deal with the 'patients', the information in it and the cut scenes that accompany the patient files are really quite disturbing, more than hints of Dr. Mengele, I'm not sure the 7+ rating is high enough really but possible the bizarreness of the results make it more 'cartoon violence' than horror?

At the end of the game you are told that the mad doctor has a brother whose orphanage you will investigate in the next game. I have played that game 'Cinderstone Orphanage' too and it was slightly better than this, or possibly as good but less disturbing.

Set in post first world war Germany the game centered around you being hired as a detective by a former psychologist to investigate an abandoned hospital where in true pre Nazi fashion a precursor to Himmler Paranormal division have been conducting experiments in an attempt to create a elite soldier using those who had suffered the horrors of the first war and were recovering.

Naturally its all gone terribly wrong and your job is to sort out the mess. Lots of enjoyable, not too difficult puzzles, creepy atmospherics and intreaging back story make for enjoyable game. If there is a blip is that in true hidden object style you have to search through a multiple array of items to find that what you seek with often no clue as to what you will find. Only later do you discover for what purpose the object is intended.

Perhaps they could have had parts which are hidden you need to find them and then when you have all the pieces assemble them.

For the setting of a hospital carrying out experiments on soldiers in 1914 I would suggest this game should have a higher rating. It was rather disturbing becuase although these were paranormal experiments, we know the horrors of what has happened in real life. Although the soldiers were given 'western' names and the narative was given in american english, the pictures of the soldiers did suggest men of eastern european origin.
Saying that I found the game just enough of a challenge to keep me interested, with a good ballance of HOG and mini-games. The bonus game, although containing rather a lot of HOG games, was also of good length.

A very enjoyable game, with just enough difficulty not to make it boring. Lots of atmosphere, with beautiful artwork, and a scattering of brainteasers to make this game playable again and again

Good game with quite a few twists and turns but it is really gruesome, verging on sick at times. This is not the sort of game to cheer you up and could be quite disturbing for some people.
