  1. For the first T rated Disney game, High Voltage ("Hunter: The Reckoning") and TDK have done a magnificent job and this is easily their best effort to date.
  2. It's imaginative, it controls well, and the puzzles are solid and challenging without being repetitive. It's simply that a basic weakness in the engine makes The Haunted Mansion a far more frustrating experience than it really needs to be.
  3. Has great production values, is "spiritually" faithful to the look and feel of the famed Disney attraction, and is a very good action/puzzler to boot.
  4. The game expertly blends physical—mostly platforming—challenges with cerebral puzzles and, in the process, keeps players guessing throughout.
  5. A fun and straightforward game that takes its inspiration from the Disney ride and thankfully not from the Eddie Murphy movie of the same name.

    Sadly, the game falters during certain combat segments. While the control mechanics enable locking in on an attacker, at times, there are so many charging that it’s difficult to target a particular one.
  7. The story is way overdone and weighs down the gameplay..., and convoluted specifics of progression are unnecessary given the game's linear structure. [Nov 2003, p.93]

    I remember playing this game in my child hood. IT has a very spooky atmosphere, great enemy design and the puzzles are very fun. AlthoughI remember playing this game in my child hood. IT has a very spooky atmosphere, great enemy design and the puzzles are very fun. Although during combat the game does get a bit boring, but that isn't what this game is about. The game main strength is in its atmosphere, enemy design, and puzzles. A very great hidden gem on the nintendo gamecube and is recommended to everyone who owns the system Expand
