  1. While The Haunted Mansion can not be classified as a children’s game, it does have a genial, yet spooky feel about it and is easily accessible by both novice and veteran gamers.
  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. Zeke is a cool character and the gameplay is enjoyable enough for a good weekend of gameplay.

    The game does a pretty decent job of retaining the style and spirit of the license without sacrificing on control mechanics or puzzle cleverness. For these reasons, parents looking for a safe, enjoyable title to play with their kids may find TDK's game a worthy selection.
  5. The game expertly blends physical—mostly platforming—challenges with cerebral puzzles and, in the process, keeps players guessing throughout.

    If you enjoy puzzle solving and are looking for a way to kill an afternoon, there are worse ways you could spend your time. [Feb 2004, p.102]

    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]

    This game is awesome! For fans of the ride, it doesn't get any better. I don't think the Play Magazine guys played the game very long.

    I wasn't expecting much from this game but being a fan of the ride I decided to rent it. 8 hours later I still couldn't put it I wasn't expecting much from this game but being a fan of the ride I decided to rent it. 8 hours later I still couldn't put it down!!! I was late for work. I was immediately wrapped into the game's ease of play and the level of authenticuty it offers from the ride. The puzzles are fun and unique and can be very challengin at times! Renting is not enough, I need to awn a copy! Collapse

    This game is pretty cool but, some parts are hard to figure out. Also, the graphics are alot better than I thought they would be.
