Too Small

If you are a fan of hidden object games, but are frustrated by small items, that seem impossible to find, you may want to wait on this one. Deffinately try it out, but I found the items very tiny. Haven't decided if I will buy it or not.

I finished the Demo but will not buy. Too many tiny objects and scenes repeat too often. There may be 16 environments, but in a hour's play I saw only about 6 with several repeats.

I love history and I really wanted to buy Civil War, History Channel and this game but the tiny objects made them all a big NO for me. They must be designing these things on a 40 inch monitor. Note to Game Developers - test these on 17 and 19 inch monitors and see what you can find.

I am hoping for a good history game with more viewable items.

For those with large monitors or very good eyesight this could be a winner for you. I so wanted to play it

I agree with the above comments. I did buy this game and I'm sorry I did. Screens are so monochromatic that many items are almost impossible to find. I used the hints way more than I like to 'cause I just could not see the items. And it's very repetitive..... Not as interesting as I'd hoped, with National Geographic as a sponsor.

I went ahead and bought it just to see the tomb. Big disappointment. I agree on the size of the HO's! I have a HD screen and still had problem. Not likely to play again.

I had high hopes for this game too. It seemed very dull. I'm not sure that I even finished the demo before I deleted it. Definitely won't buy it. Felt the same about Civil War. Many tiny, dark objects, too few hints.

I agree with all of the above complaints and am also disappointed in Nat. Geo. for sponsoring this game. I was going to buy, but due to the consensus of opinion........ "no way".

Have to agree with everyone here. Too small, too repetative and a real
big disappointment.

On the pro side, good story line, which almost makes it more disappointing that I won't buy, but after an hour, my eyes hurt as do my arms from holding up a magnifier.

With a name like National Geo, I expected better.
