And neither will I......it was one of the most confusing games I ever played, The hint system was terrible and when you needed it the most I couldn't tell what it was showing me, if at all!!!!! Too many fragmented pieces throughout which I usually don't mind but sometimes when you need help...their help didn't provide anything


TG I bought it for a coupon so now I don't feel so bad.

This was fun with some interesting puzzles, but at least in the demo time, the story didn't make much sense, and some of the hidden object scenes had items really difficult to find. I hate having my hint button on cool-down, but for the last few objects, it often was. Maybe I'm just having a bad night. *shrug* Overall though, good game, and a might-buy for me.

This game is not so bad, I like the way the puzzles are, I always like something different when it comes to HOG.

I bought it on sale and I was not disappointed of what I got for the prices.

Review based upon completion of the game.

You are reunited with Pam, your significant other, only to have her abducted the following night. You are stuck with a medallion that she brought along from her trip, and that's the only clue you have. Find Pam, and uncover the mystery of some island where she supposedly is now...

The Good:

+ FROG scenes
+ quite good story, told in comic style in cut scenes
+ adequate game length

The Neutral:

o some mini games are not explained well, but you are able to figure it out quickly
o quite fast hint recharge (you will need it!)
o sometimes you are stuck with completed objects and no clue what to do with them

The Bad:

- VERY TINY objects
- sound (this marks the first time that I voluntarily turned up the music volume to drown out the blings)

Bottom Line: Good game that apparently aged quite well. There are broad black bars on the side in full screen mode, making visible screen smaller and some objects tiny. The story - while a bit clichéd (your standard Indy Jones one) - held my interest for the 3 hours it took me to complete.

I was annoyed to have to go look for help more than once and am again stuck in the car!! When the items don't work (handle) and the tools are hidden then to another game i"ll go.

Funny Fact:

This has been a very enjoyable game for me. I've found it relaxing and not too hard of a challenge. Quite logical gameplay, actually, and good story. I'm about 3/4 of the way through it, but I had to stop and comment here tonight on one thing over which I had quite a good laugh.

I noticed there were minor grammatical errors throughout the game which normally do not detract from gameplay for me, but I sure giggled over this: Watch out for those "gorillas" with the guns in the jungle. I'm sure the developers meant "guerrillas," so this elicited quite a giggle out of me. There were a lot of monkeys depicted throughout the different scenes, but I've never yet seen a gorilla toting a machine gun in my life--- except maybe in a cartoon!

Not the best storyline, but okay. HOS scenes were nice. But, someone should have checked the use of english; nouns and verbs should match.
