Totally underwhelmed. Waiting for a CE this Sunday and not getting one was bad enough, but this game in it's place? For shame.

After the huge intro and build-up and all the talk about tracers and zapping and time travel etc., this turns out to be a straight HOG with small indistinct objects, one scene after another.

If anyone finishes the demo and I turn out to be wrong about this game, please let me know. I only managed 15 mins and could not tolerate any more.

I only lasted 20 minutes and couldn't wait to uninstall. I own old games like this one that I will never play again because of timers and junk pile HOGs. In the time that I played I didn't encounter even one puzzle. There is no opportunity to skip the tutorial. No voice over. Boring music. Tiny items. Two of the items I looked for were incorrectly named. Thanks BFG, but no thanks!

I usually dont have a problem with straight HOG' s but this just does'nt do anything for me I'm afraid .Have played half way and up to now there are'nt even any mini games to break the monotony .Think its uninstall time for both games today . On with the housework on this rainy sunday

This game was so boring I quit after 5 min. in. All it is is hos and that is boring. The hos are even cheap looking, no great developer here. Sorry BF not for me.

The word "timed" was all I needed to see to know this HOG will not be one I will even try. Were there an option to play it without a timer, I might at least download the demo and check it out.

With gaming technology as advanced as it is now, I'm surprised any developer would release a timed Hidden Object game without offering an untimed option.

I don't think I've read one positive review on this game; that tells me all I need to know. My gripe/comment is why in the hell did release this game as the feature game, and not the new Amazing Adventures game, which was only a soft release? Whoever made this decision at needs to be transferred to the janitorial services dept .

Well, since this is the "comments" thread I guess it is OK to post here...

This is one of the very few games I did not even download for the free trial. I read through all the posts and am skeptical that I would find anything to say other than what has already been said. Thanks to those who did opt to try the demo and give us their impressions.

I, too, was a bit surprised not to find a "Sunday CE" today....maybe due to the 10-day sale on CEs? For the ones offered on the sale thus far, I have already purchased them in the past so nothing to spend my half-price credits on today.

I thought that timed HOGs were a thing of the past. It seems its ugly head has resurfaced.

I will only tolerate timed games from the Little Shops. I will never tolerate tutorials that cannot be skipped. I stopped the download after I read the comments. No buy here.

I'm okay with the game itself, I only have a problem when the item you need is hidden behind something and you can't see enough to click on it. How do you get it then?

I made it through 12 minutes and that only because I was stujpid and would not stop during a HOG scene. Boring. Old-fashioned. Too much explanation at the beginning. TIMED scenes! Yuck. Sorry, devs.

They lost me in Japan when the bright blue coffee pot was not the "coffee pot" I had to find but some indistinct thing halfway off the screen was (I had to use a hint). This was about 5 minutes into the game. I'm uninstalling it now.

I usually like straight forward HOGs with very few mini games, but this was awful!! I should have quit when the clue was orange ball, and there was definitely a large orange ball in the scene, but when I used the hint, it was a basketball.

The final straw was in the Mexico scene, the clue was rifle, and there was a rifle in the tree, but, using the hint it turned out to be what looked like a twig on the ground.

I lasted 50 minutes, and that's 50 minutes of my life I'll never get back

To me, it is imperative that I comment on one part of this game so that those of you who will be totally offended are aware...........Look at the third screen shot. At the shooting gallery, do you really want to shoot the cross of Jesus?????? Where are you Big Fish? I wouldn't have let this one by on a bet!
