This is a typical run of the mill hidden object game. You have your requisite supernatural story, hidden objects games, and simple puzzles, with a small amount of backtracking. In my mind, if you've played one of these kinds of games, you've played them all because the puzzles tend to repeat in many of the games, and the gameplay doesn't change, nor is the story very different. However, I do enjoy these games from time to time to relax. I've played worse games in this genre, but also many better. This one was very average and didn't really stand out to me. It's worth a play for anyone who likes this genre, but otherwise it's impossible to recommend. It took me about 3 hours to beat this game and like all other games of this genre, I never went back to it.
Paranormal State Poison Spring is a hidden object and puzzle game based on the A&E ghost hunting show Paranormal State. I never watched the show and the story of the game isn't that interesting, with cast of the show investigating a Civil War site, but there are a decent amount of locations. You act like a new member of the group though you don't say anything, it would have made more sense if you had played as the other characters. As you progress you will get to use different tools that will activate mini games, which helps change things up from the usual gameplay of finding listed objects. The visuals are somewhat hit and miss with some good looking environments but some occasionally poor or unintentionally funny character models and expressions.
This is a very good point and click game. You discover hidden objects and solve puzzles, trying to understand what is going on the town. I never watched the TV show, but I liked the game a lot. It has spooky scenarios, but it's not a scary game, and it's really easy, you can use hints all the time if you want. Overall, I recommend it for people who like hidden object games, and point and clicks in general.
I must preface this review with the fact that I have never watched the A&E TV show "Paranormal State" and as such I can't say whether they used the show actors to do voices for this license game or if any characters were misrepresented. I'm rather fond of hidden object games, they are a guilty pleasure of mine and help occupy my time when I'm in the mood for a light gaming session. As far as hidden object games go, Paranormal State: Poison Spring is a good game. Length is about what you'd expect for games in this genre with an average playtime clocking in at 2-3 hrs or less. There are interactive objects across every hidden object scene and the puzzles and mini games are pretty standard fare. There is also a short epilogue available after completing the game as well. What makes this game stand out in game play is the inclusion of 3 tools you can use at specified points in the game that serve as mini games to push the story forward. The most interesting one is the EVP which requires setting the proper height and width for a frequency and matching it with the sample. The variety in mini games and puzzles was a welcome change though many of the usual suspects rear their ugly faces here (leapfrog stones, sliding puzzles). As far as production value goes, it's hit or miss here as you can tell they put in some effort in making the characters match their real life counterparts while at the same time featuring them in some rather unflattering freeze frames. Paranormal State: Poison Spring is a worthwhile distraction if you're a fan of the genre and maybe even the show. As far as hidden object games, it doesn't fall into the repetitive, dull pitfalls that many in the genre succumb to and doesn't overstay it's welcome.
