It's a type of fiction called a Hidden Object/Adventure Game.


They all do that don't they.

But my goodness the mini games theirs so many


PLAY doesn't work any more.

Yep I think theirs more mini games then HO scenes
.

I'm not buying it or even trying it, I want the devs to get the message that HOG games are not puzzle games. A few thrown in here and there are ok, but the majority should be HO.,

My review in the Customer reviews isn't posting again. I got the e-mail that it posted so it may not be fixed.

This was just "meh" to me. I totally enjoyed this series for many installments but this one just left me feeling rather bored. I really don't mind finding the many keys/statues/whatever as that's the MO for this series but the over abundance of puzzles was ridiculous, most of which were just time suckers and leant nothing to the story. Maybe I'll purchase as an SE, maybe not.

And why is everyone worried about their reviews not showing up on the home page? This review forum is open to all to see and I usually find better game info here (along with any potential tech problems). Long ago there were no starred reviews and I kinda wish it would go away as the early reviews are usually only based on the demo and that is hardly fair to a game.

To all that like this one, enjoy!

Hello friends! As usual, I review mostly on the game play and leave the story line to others who do a much better job than I. Wow, this series just keeps on going! Graphics were nicely done, very clear with no blurring when going in or out of cut scenes. Game play was excellent, with no problems during the demo. Colors were very clear and bright, but not over powering at all. Voices are age and character appropriate and very well done, when we have them. During the demo, there was very little character interaction. Music was okay. This game was fairly quiet, so I didn't really notice much in the way of sound FX. Animation was excellent, including the appropriate facial movements.

HOPs were clear and clean, no junk piles. Items were easy to find, so no eye strain. As usual, we had a combo of interactive lists, silhouettes, finding pairs and straight lists. I did not see that you could switch to anything else if you got bored with the HOPs. Puzzles were not difficult, and real time or thought to complete. We do have a lot of back-tracking for items, but we have a transport feature that saves a lot of time. You also have a jump map if you prefer, but the transport is much faster. Hint system is helpful. Strategy guide is the usual and helpful if you just can't find that one last collectible.

Collectibles aren't bad and some had a little challenge to finding them. We have 27 morphing items to find. These are not difficult, but they do morph fairly quickly. We also have 20 picture pieces that can be almost anywhere. They are fairly large, so not difficult to miss if you remember to pick them up. We also collect 13 memories. Not sure why yet, as I didn't see that we could use them or look at them during the demo.

The story is nothing new, another wife, husband, sister, etc., goes missing and we must save them from the bad guys. The story started to get a bit "out there" when the demo ended, so I'm not really sure about this one. I may have to replay the demo again. This is one you will definitely need to decide for yourself. At this point, I don't think I can recommend this one, except to beginners.

As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find this one to be exactly what you are looking for. Thanks for the reviews.

Agree with most of the comments here. I was looking forward to an interesting story, something a bit scary, but unfortunately it was nothing new & all very easy. It passed some time & am very glad got on sale but really it was just very easy & bland.

I love hidden object games and not the puzzles that have incomplete instructions. So I was disappointed in the game. It was super easy and ended suddenly.
