    I was not as scared by charlottes appearances as by just the general scary, dark theme going throughout the game. And the music added to that scary theme a lot.

    After all of the build up about how scary this game was going to be, I was surprised by how not scary it actually was. It's more the anticipation that is scary. The actual hauntings weren't very scary. SAW was much scarier.

    It's funny because SAW freaked me out with the mirror part and I was definitely on edge when I played Ghost dogs of moon lake. That one I actually uninstalled and refused to play it for months before reinstalling and finally playing it through.

    However, in GTH I did gasp when I saw Charlotte. But some of the other things that happen I'd just stop then laugh. When I played GTH the second time, I was expecting it so I didn't gasp or jump anymore and even when I saw Charlotte I would just think how pretty they made her and I love her dress! lol

    As far as letting your sister play it, just explain to her that it does have some nerve wracking parts that might scare her and let her decide if she wants to play it, and maybe you could even play it with her. You probably need to judge on her personality and how well she handles scary things.

    It's really a judgement call. If I had a *Age Removed* yr old sister, I'd probably let her play it but if she was under *Age Removed* I probably wouldn't.

    It's scary but honestly, there's nothing in it that's inappropriate for a child under 10, at least not that I've come across. If she gets freaked out and doesn't enjoy scary games then of course she shouldn't play it. If she's fine with them it shouldn't be a problem.

    I definitely thought the game was pretty scary--though I think maybe SAW scared me more because the ghost there was a bit more morbid than the one in this game. It was more of the shock factor than anything that scared me. Most of the ghostly happenings that were similar to those in MHM happened more than once in the game, so after the first time it was less shocking. I do believe the first time you see the ghost is fairly early in the game so perhaps play it up to there (yourself) and decide if you think she will find it to be too scary? You will be a better judge as to whether it will scare her or not since you actually know her!

    I would say that this game is a combination of The Curse of Blackmoore Manor and Haunting of Castle Malloy. I literally jumped and ran from the ghost in SAW; the pop-outs are not as intense as SAW, by far. BUT there are MORE pop-out scenes - none of which are close-up images of an extremely morbid character. She will be fine at *Age Removed*.

    It'll just depend on how old she is, really. Because I played the game in a completely dark room at night and was perfectly fine :p I mean, you could always play it with her or something?

    Btw, I like your name Shiek....Zelda fan? ;)

    To me, it wasn't so much "scary", as it was creepy. After playing some of it a second time, I had a freaky dream myself where she was beside my bed and jumped at me. It was really creepy. And I'm quite a bit older than your younger sister. (I'm *Age Removed*).

    As far as comparing GTH to another game. It was like SAW, it had a ghost, and strange things happen. But in SAW it was because a person. In GTH, you don't get that overall explanation. If it was my sister, personally I wouldn't let her play it.

    this game is SO SCARY to me!!

    hi all, i just wanted to share that i find GTH to be the scariest nancy drew game ever... and i have played them all, multiple times each in most cases!

    i'm a lifetime fan and devotee of these wonderful mysteries, but this game seems to have a creep factor about it that is sometimes making it not so enjoyable for me to play. in most other games there is some "relief" from the scary factor, however on this one i feel every area you go to is really terrifying and i keep having to quit playing to take a break, from getting so creeped out!

    i am an adult, and i know many people really enjoy the scare factor, and i do somewhat as well, but this game actually feels a bit... dare i say.. evil to me? i am wondering if i'm going to finish the game as i'm only 1/2 way through. it's funny because usually when you discover an underground tunnel, it's really scary in the other games, however, in this game i find the underground passageways to be downright charming compared to the rest of the settings, scenery and overall vibe of the game!

    just my 2 cents, y'all! carry on sleuthing... i'll think only be playing during the day though! haha!

    Most of the time I like scary stuff, but for some reason I was on edge the whole time. I jumped at everything! In the end I really liked the game, and i liked being scared, but i don't think I want to play it again haha!

    Full disclosure: I get freaked out by jump-scares very easily and creepy atmospheres can scare me too.

    Mostly whenever I encountered Charlotte it was like *gasp* followed by a short period of barely breathing until she went away. I found that a lot of the scariness in this game was not from the ghost and various scares around the house a la MHM (though those could be a creepy) but from the darker-than-usual psychological aspects, which I think made the game more terrifying for older players than younger.

    If your sister's older than 10, she should be fine.

    It all depends on the child. I would be able to play it from seven above (Just because of the difficulty factor) I didn't find any of it "scary" sometimes things would startle me, but I never "jumped" i may have just shaken a little. But It was more that the things were unexpected, that made me jump.

    Yea Its somewhat creepy.....I jumped acouple of times....and to be perfectly honest a couple of times I even hid my eyes haha.....But yet thats me.....It mainly depends on how old your younger sister is. My little sister sat down to watch me but i told her no cuz i thought it was to creepy for her. But yet shes not even 10 so yea

    Maybe

    I did enjoy this game. It IS creepy. There was one place where you have to investigate (several times) where I did think, "I wonder if THIS is too strong for younger kids?"
