Lasted a loooong time, so I felt I got my money's worth, but was a bit bored by the whole thing, and was ready for it to be over by the end (but, of course, I had missed three cards, and that took forever!). I think I was spoiled by Green Moon.

TWO OF FIVE STARS

I loved this game. I got the standard version. It took me a longgggggggg time to get it done. I am guessing 9 hours while relaxing and enjoying myself. When I saw that you had to collect cards I was guessing that I would miss a bunch but I was so surprised to see I didn't miss a single one. Honestly...ERS is turning out to be one of the best game makers in my opinion. This game was worth every penny I spent. I can't wait to forget it and redo it in a few months. I am sooooooooo happy that I bought this game. Funny thing is when I first did the demo I wasn't sure I was going to get it. It seemed too hard. But I took a chance. All I can say is Wow! It is that good.

I played the trial version after someone on another thread recommended it. Love it! It's a must-buy for me!

Bought the game and just finished playing. Took a long time (a good thing!) and wasn't too hard. Don't remember who recommended it here but I'm glad I wrote down the name and looked for it.

I love how you start out with only a few rooms in the mansion and then as the game progesses you access more and more rooms. I am so glad I bought this game!

(only downside to this game was music sounded a bit repetitive to me, and sometimes would edge into a Spanish/flamenco sound that didn't quite fit the mood, but music can be turned down)

I totally do not get your ratings system. With no explanation why you rate each item in your list the way you do, I find it to be no help at all.

I agree completely - loved this one! Can't wait for the SG of the next one!

Loved the game! Have to agree it was challenging without being too difficult. Loved the mini-games. I liked having all the secret rooms-- I personally enjoy having to go from scene to scene-- it makes me really remember what I saw where!! Super graphics-- just wish there was more to do in town, at the other mansion, and at the shack. Really enjoyed it! I would have preferred a little brighter lighting in all the HOG scenes, but it was ok. Great game! Hope there's a sequel!

I just bought this as I was offered it for a bargain price and only had 5 minutes to decide. There was no time to trial it or even to read many reviews. At the price i paid it was a bargain. I thought the graphics were great, the puzzles were all fairly straightforward but the music drove me mad and I turned it off. It's quite a long game and there's lots of legwork required as there's no map.

The biggest disappointment was the hidden object scenes. To start out with they weren't too bad, there was an extremely generous click penalty and the objects were easy to find. But as the game went on they became much more frequent and very dark and very small. Some items didn't pick up on the click unless you had the cursor in an exact spot on the item. Some things were so well hidden that even with the hint button I struggled to find them.

I am with a few other reviewers here by not having a clue what the fog on the SG box was all about.

On the whole it's a challenging game without being impossible.

Another great game from ERS. Very good graphics, tolerable music, decent HOG scenes. A map would have been nice but was able to get through with just a bit of confusion (old age?). The mini-games were especially good - both variety and level of challenge. Story line was interesting but it wasn't fully fleshed out. Ending, as seems to be the norm, was hasty and disappointing.

Enjoyed the play and will probably play again. Looking forward to a sequel?

Really good game. Great graphic, plenty of HOS's, voice overs are good, good story line & no technical problems. Would highly recommend.

4 1/2

Anyway, this is up there with RTR for quality, length and game play. A little dark in some scenes but still could find what I needed. Got lost a few times, but actually managed to find my way thru without walkthru. Yea! If you like good HOG with good story, this fills that. You won't be sorry for purchasing this one. Well worth it for good game play, good mini-games, length. Ending is not the most satisfying but leaves the door open for another game to come.
I don't play with the music on so can't comment on that.
Enjoy, all you HOG Fishie Fans!!


What is RTR?

This was absolutely the best game I have ever played !!!! I played a LONG time; the story was captivating; even the music was appropriate. The amount of different places to go to was incredible (I didn't keep track). Hands down the best money I've EVER spent on any game EVER!!!!!!!

Agree with most of you, great game Just a couple frustrations. I played all the way to the end before I discovered I missed a card. An "Area Cleared" would help. Also, no hints to help with the next move (not HOG scenes). The moves seem to be disjointed and search and click is the only way to figure it out. I felt I needed the walkthrough way too much. PS: I discovered which card was missing by clicking on the card pile next to the menu button.

Double Wow!! this one kept me scratching my head for weeks. Yeah, I know, I am not a wiz kid but I did love the whole damn thing. I wish there was going to be another one to follow suit but they don't seem to do it that way very much. "sigh".
Anyway I sure did love it.

Frustrating as hell! I've gotten stuck and can't move on at this point. I was looking for the next step for over an hour and finally gave up.There needs to be hints throughout not just in the hidden object rooms! I want my $4.99 back! Or I want to know what to do next. A game should be challenging and fun, not frustrating.
