I downloaded the trial version and am glad I didn't buy the full version.This game keeps freezing my computer. I can't even get past the first search.

Fun game for children. Easy to find items, no pressure and colorful. Children will love it. As to the short gaming time, we are judging it on an adult level. It will take the young ones longer to solve the puzzles and find the items. Should keep them entertained for hours.
Merry Christmas to all the fishes out there both big and small and everything in between.

Cute game for those with children. I'd say for children 6 to 12. My 7 year old grandson really enjoyed it. I got bored with it after about 15 minutes straight hidden object games do nothing for me. He took over and was disappointed it ended. I guess I'll get it for him. Who knows my taste in games changes, maybe one day I'll want to sit down and play it through as well.

I put my comment somewhere else, so I'll move it here.

I don't know how I feel about this game. If it wasn't Christmas themed, I'd probably hate it. It's straight HOG -- no interactive bits. The graphics are pretty decent, although somewhat photo-realistic, which I don't like. I DO like that the "Twelve Days of Christmas" is a main component of the story. You have to find all of the items that are described in the story. However, they sort of sparkle while you're looking for things on the HOG screens, so they're way too easy to spot. The mini-games are blah, and nothing we haven't seen before: Spot the Difference, Slider Puzzles, Figure out a Lock. You can skip all of them if you'd like. Hints recharge very quickly. I also feel like at the rate I'm collecting the "Twelve Days" items, this game will be pretty short.

Edit to add: I hate that "Good Job!" thing that pops up after you finish a level. It's only there for a few seconds, but it just sort of lingers in your face. I just want to keep playing, not stare at that! LoL

It's cute for a Christmas game and seems well put together. However, I'm not sure I'd spend the $6.99. If it was a Daily Deal? Sure.

Great game for entire family, which is not something you can say very often. No blood, ghosts, or mean people....nice while kids are on break!!

I'm glad to see a Christmas HOG game that's not dark and dreary. Don't get me wrong I do have plenty of the dark and dreary HOG's but it is good to see a Christmaslike HOG...that's not too syrupy sweet like Holly. I'd like to see a Christmas HOG game that's not dark and dreary and that's also just a tad more adult like. This is good though it is Christmassy and I do like that. I have to agree that I do not like the "GOOD JOB" thing that lingers for a few seconds, LOL! It is kind of annoying, LOL! I'd like to get it but things are a bit tight right now so we'll have to see. Overall I did enjoy it.

This big kid really enjoyed the demo. I found the graphics to be very endearing and charming and the music was perfect. However, not sure I would have bought it anyway but after reading the comments about the shortness of the game, its a no buy for me.

Merry Christmas and a Safe New Year, but this is seriously not for me.

Cute game, but way tooooooo short for the full price of the game. Perhaps BF could offer a percentage off on these short games; it would certainly pay off in the long run. I finally wised up and started reading reviews before buying the games. I have about 25 that I will probably never play again and it gets expensive after awhile. I'm happy with most of the games and appreciate BF for trying its best to bring us the best to us gamers.

This game is way too short. Fun but not a value for your money, that's for sure.

Even though this is a short game it does have some replay value.
The hidden object items don't change a whole lot but they do change.
And who doesn't love those 'Lords a Leaping'? LOL!
Merry Christmas from Kizmit!!

Cute game for kids and the kid at heart. Is it me or does Santa look like Charleton Heston?

MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL!

I love this game (love games with a Christmas theme), and bought it. I love the graphics, and yes, the game is easy, but I don´t mind in this case.

I absolutely adore the fact that "The 12 Days of Christmas" were added in the search. What a charming idea.

This game was just okay to me. Mostly, these kind of older looking HOG's just don't have great appeal to me and I've a backlog of them that I haven't played yet. If this one didn't have a Christmas theme, I'd never have demoed it.

I agree the "12 Days of Christmas" addition was nice, this game is full of Christmas cheer, but since they glow in every scene, it adds nothing to the gameplay. I think this game would've been greatly improved by the addition of a more challenging mode of play option.

As far as Christmas HOG's go, I'd rank it third behind Holly: A Christmas Tale and Christmasville. Older but much superior games imho. This game does have a great Christmas feel to it and it's worth at least a demo for that.
