I don't think this one is the same one being sold in stores. I THINK I read that this one was made specifically for casual gaming sites. Not sure where I saw that or even IF I'm completely right about it. If I DID see it, it was probably on Gamezebo.


Thank you for that info. I will have to find my game and see what the name of it is.

Hi Teresa, I looked on Amazon and it has a picture of it. I think it says hidden objects there too. Like the last Nancy Drew, a bunch of adventure fans only will be upset when they think they got another adventure. I learned from last time and started googling it to make sure what it was when Mudrock said it was coming this week.

I downloaded it to try it, but I don't have much hope considering the reviews here.

Yes, I just checked my game and it is called The Hidden Theft. Will have to try this one even though most of you don't seem to like it too much.

I have to agreealso about the game. Its not my cup of tea im afraid. I played about 10 minutes and
when I came to where you have to join up the wires, that was it for me.I hate those puzzles, and I couldn't
find a skip button, so in the bin it goes.

Yeah, the Hidden Theft is an adventure game and I played it last fall. It is like Nancy Drew and not a real good one, but decent. Amazon has the Perfect Crime one too, due out June 16th and it is the one here. If you didn't know and had bought the first one, you would assume it was adventure too. Here, of course, we know, BFG is great about informing us. It looks like not so much info on Amazon, etc.

I was looking forward to this game, but now I'm just disappointed!

The noise when you find an object is obnoxious. Had turn the sound off immediately.
The timer never moved off of 12:00, even though I didn't choose a 'relaxed' mode.
Goofy dialog.
Fuzzy graphics.

I agree with you!

Small items
What's up with the conversation blocks scrolling up the screen???
Annoying music, turned that off real quick


Just tried it, uninstalled real quick

This one is an HO game, there is another made by the Adventure Company that is an Adventure game, I would assume the one you bought is an Adventure Game, does it have Jesse McCartney as one of the voice actors, because I would think they would state that on the game somewhere.

Tried this game but only lasted a couple of minutes. Having to bear the dialogue was enough for me, objects too indistinct, nothing really to hold my interest. Very disappointed.

This game could be a good one but I agree with everyone else. The objects are too small, I can't see them. The grammer is awful--this tells me that the people who developed this game barely speak English.
There is nothing to recommend that one should purchase this game.
Who tests these games? They should be fired.

I was so disappointed in the Hardy Boys....It could have been a really good game, but the items were so small, the graphics were grainy, scenes were dark and I didn't like the way they had the dialect between the characters set up.

I was truly hoping for a good game, but it's a NO for me too.

I lasted 10 minutes with this game. I agree with the negative reviews of the other posters. Deleted.

I too thought this would be like Nancy Drew, but with the Hardy Boys instead. Um, not even close! This game was really bad. I like HOGs and puzzle games, but this one - . I was pretty disappointed as well. The graphics were horrible, the incessant talking b/w characters was irritating, and the puzzles were easy and boring. So note to anyone wondering - DON'T BOTHER!!!!!

Hey all,

The Hardy Boys - The Perfect Crime now has its own forum so I've gone ahead and moved this thread.

Cheers!

This was a very bad game. Indiscriminate clicking to find objects that look nothing like they should is not my idea of fun. Usually couldn't even catch the hints as they were too hard to see. I expected a lot more from a game "with a name" - I'm sure they paid a lot to use.
