Well to begin with, I am an adult, but a kid at heart and this game really brought out the kid in me which was a pleasent change from the same old daily grind of the responsibilitys that comes along with being an adult.
I'm sure I enjoyed playing this game as much as any kid would have...I LOVED IT!!
I just got lost in the wonderful atmosphere and was surprised with the interaction that is involved in this game, very imaginative which I love.
The second and third escape from the house, was better IMO than the first, the ghost machine was my favorite.
I didn't have any graphic issues at all, like others have stated, mine were very clear, so I was very grateful for that because I do need glasses just for reading.
It was nice to feel like a kid again, for some reason I don't remember much of my childhood at all...still haven't figured that out after 47 years, so maybe that is why I enjoy these games now.
Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't want to play these kind on a daily basis, but these I spy games just have something about them that really draws me in !!
I purchased the first one that BF had on their site, and enjoyed that one as well, so I hope they continue to make future I Spy games.
THANKS BF for bringing this older game to the BF site, and letting me find my inner child again :-)
If anyone is aware of other I SPY games, PLEASE send me a pm with the details, it would be greatly appreciated...thanks !!

I am also all growed up. I love the concept of this game. Would like it to move faster - hate to have found everything then have to listen to a recap and repetitive instructions. BUT I would be glad to see an adult version with the word play and puzzles.
It is a clever and humorous HOG.

Well.....I'm glad someone else (and others I see), has the same problems with this game as I do. Especially with the pixelation. And....I'd like to know why someone at BFG (mods or tech people), doesn't post answers here for us about this problem(s).?? I bought this game, cause I had fun with the first I Spy game here, and I thought this one would be good too. Well.....if I can't play the game and have fun, then what??? Maybe I'll just ask for a refund........... And there is nothing wrong with my video card or anything. I can play Dire Grove with no problems and it looks Great on my computer. So, why can't I play this I Spy game? I am upset......

Way too irritating to buy and I finished and got out in less than the demo anyway.

Maybe a fun kid's game, but then again, that voice is so irritating, that maybe not.

Yawn.

To the ones who finished during trial my hats off to you after I got out the 1st time I was invited in at least 2 more times. As for this being a childish game duh! This game is mainly designed for children I believe, my 2 oldest grandaughters- ages 6 & 8 love it and it give them practice with reading as well as being whole lot of fun. I bought it right away.

Sorry BF. Do not like this one at all. After you click an item, it responds too slowly. And as far as moving the puzzle pieces, too jerky.

I've almost finished this game. I have finished the first chapter without any glitches. But the second game is givigng me trouble. I have all the items in the lab and have attached them correctly. But, I can not get the breaker box opened to insert the "Go" button (witch I have no found yet.). I have the little switch and can not find the Go button and can not get the breaker box open. Anyone have help.

I enjoyed this game but in the second part at the end in the lab, I had all pieces, but could not get the electric box open to insert the little red thingy. Didn't get to finish and no clue how to do it. Sorry I bought it. What's with no ending?

Tha was actually the first hidden-object game I played and today I was very surprised to see it on BFG. All I can say is that this game is wonderful! The spookiness of the house combined with good humour make it a good game for children even. And as for rhymed lists of objects to find - each time it was making me smile
Just great!

This game is definitely for children and those adults young at hart, I bought this game when it first came out I guess because it was appealing to me, but after playing for a while I just could not play anymore.

I have to say that it was nice and engaging, but no for me.

This game is a hoot! A fun and enjoyable game for kids and adults alike. Once you get over yourself and don't take the graphics seriously, you'll understand that it just adds to the charm. Don't be fooled either because it can be challenging, at times.I laughed my way through it and loved it.

I realize this is an old game. 2005. But I don't believe anyone could finished this game entirely in two minutes. I thought the game was fun and maybe a bit clunky. It crashed when I used the hint button. The game was worth the money, considering its age. The sound and voice over was very good. I remembering seeing this game at our local school book fair.
