I beta tested this game several months ago, and I couldn't wait for it to be released. I own every game in this series, and it's one of those games that, although it isn't necessary, it's very helpful, to start at the beginning (New Horizon/Standard Edition only) to get the big picture. The Secret Order is The Order of The Griffin, an order dedicated to ridding the world of evil, which usually centers around the nefarious Dragon Clan, and its leader, Quiron. The only feature I'm disappointed in, is the fact that the famous Royal Griffin, no longer exists. The one and only feature that set this game apart from all other games and made it unique, was that Sarah Pennington traveled through time aboard this mighty ship, and now its gone, gone, gone! I think this series is still relevant, but has lost some appeal because of the disappearance. I always buy the CE version, because I enjoy the morphs and collectibles, so here's a recap of my review to help you decide which version to buy, if any:
Sarah Pennington is a modern day Time Traveler with The Order of the Griffin, a secret organization her father founded. Her mother joined the Order to protect the helpless, and volunteered her medical services in the Amazon basin, her mission....sabotage! The Order was created to thwart the nefarious deeds of its nemesis, The Dragon Clan. Sarah's mother has been searching the Amazon for a flower of miracles, a flower that if possessed by the wrong person, could become a deadly flower! Mom has been searching for THE Flower of Life, a flower that cures ALL illness! Looks like Sarah is back on the job, because the Dragon Clan has kidnapped mom, claiming that they will return her unharmed in exchange for the flower of life. We're about to find out what will happen if the Flower of Life falls into the wrong hands!
Hold on to your computer chair folks, this is going to be an amazing Amazon adventure! The graphics are stunning, and I loved every second of this game, the sights the sounds, and the beautiful Amazon wildlife. I didn't hesitate to purchase the Collector's Edition version, for the abundance of Collectible Animals, Hydroplane Posters and all those Morphing Amazon Critters. Eventually you will take possession of a Cube artifact which will give you 3 special powers after playing a mini game. A small monkey takes a liking to you, and he will assist you when you need something that's too high to reach, but he's fairly realistic and unobtrusive, in my opinion, he's not annoying in any way.
Where has The Secret Order been hiding lately? (apparently the Amazon) This series is fantastic, but it's hard to keep up with the storyline when they take so long in between releases, New Horizon was released in December of 2011, then we waited for 2 years before Masked Intent was released March 2013. Ancient Times followed in it's footstep a year later in April of 2014, Beyond Time the following year March 2015, and last game was released in May of 2016, The Buried Kingdom. I guess all that waiting has paid off, because they took the time to get it right!
The Hidden Object Scenes are mostly Silhouetted Shape finds, some are the Progressive Interactive ones, but there are also the standard Listed item finds, and one scene where you are tasked with finding items and following instructions that mom gives you. If you're not into HOP's, there is a Pair Matching game to play instead.
The Mini Games are plentiful, and none of them seem too difficult to solve. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo:
1) Follow ingredient clues, mix to achieve the correct color, then use a 5 oz. and 3 oz. beaker to achieve the correct amounts of each color.
2) To use the cube's power. move the lens around the scene to reveal and select each symbol shown on the lens frame to reveal hidden places.
3) Recreate the colored symbols from the paper by using the colored wires to connect two different shapes that when combined will form the correct symbols.
4) Escape the burning plane by interacting with the scene.
5) Enter the correct combination by first solving the match equations and applying those color coded sums.
6) Put the discs into their correct places by swapping tiles.
7) Find the object that matches the keywords in a story and then place those items correctly.
The Collector's Edition has 7 Collectible Hydroplane Poster Magazines by Dale Kingsley, 7 Collectible Parrot statues, 7 Collectible Alligators statues, 7 Collectible Panthers statues, 7 Collectible Chameleon statues, 24 Achievements to earn (12 skill based-12 story based), 20 Morphing Objects to discover, replayable Mini Games and Hidden Object Scenes, 15 Wallpapers, 9 Music Soundtracks, a built in Strategy Guide and a Bonus Adventure, enjoy!
