    So, if you weren’t sure about the “musical adventure” genre, you should be now. There may not be too much competition, but Wailing Heights definitely belongs there as one of the genre’s greatest.

    If you love 60’s rock and roll culture, Wailing Heights’ wicked funny script will have you in stitches despite some obvious rough budget edges in production. There’s a fierce soul kicking in this one and the gorgeous artwork and inspired, wacky soundtrack more than make up for its mechanical shortcomings.

    Even though it's not perfect, Wailing Heights is one of those games that everyone looking for something different should try. A good plot and a strong visual identity provide the foundations for a very interesting offer.

    A great adventure & musical videogame full of puzzles, with a charismatic look and good sense of humor.

    Wailing Heights is a stylish ballad of comic horror. The plot could be stronger and there are a few technical bum notes, but it’ll leave you with a wolfish grin.

    Wailing Heights is a game with a unique idea that quickly falls into the same old adventure game traps.

    Although this game just secretes good vibes, it's never funny or clever enough to pass the critical eye. However, its light-heartedness and character is enough to play it through, and will have you dancing to the beat of the game for its duration.
