I wanted to love this game because the dinosaurs intrigued me. I thought that maybe the game would improve after the demo, but it was just more of the same thing, pick up an item from this area of interest, put the item on another area of interest, go here go there, nothing really exciting, just the same ole, same ole thing. There weren't even any epic dinosaur scenes, other than a couple of times when rogue dinosaurs appeared in attempt to frighten the player (and didn't) I tried to love this game, but instead I got really bored and quit after playing a little over one chapter. If done right, a HOPA game should have the player glued to the screen, wanting to keep playing, because the HOP's and Mini Games are entertaining, and because you want to know "what happens next" If what happens next, is that you could care less about either, the game failed miserably. Here's a recap to help you decide which version, if any is right for you:
Eve Glover may want to pursue another career at this point, because every archaeological dig she's assigned to, ends up taking her to another world. One of these days she's going to get stuck there, with no way to return, and perhaps, that would be a great way to close this series. Epix games are top notch, but they just don't know when to quit, they tend to release one game after another, until they drive it into the ground. I gotta give them kudo's for the Lost World storyline theme, but they didn't take advantage of the really cool jurrasic era meets alien world genre. Instead, you get the responsibility of uniting two opposing tribes, that once were one.
The missed opportunity? Well, the tribe originated from another planet, which make them aliens, but they are no different than tribes in any other game, for starters. They use the planet's native dinosaurs as means of transportation, but they don't really focus on them, which is a major mistake in my opinion. There are never any games about dinosaurs, let alone sci-fi games with dinos, would've, could've, SHOULD'VE! Lastly, the graphics are bland and unappealing, not what you'd expect from a futuristic yet prehistoric jungle game, and the only extra offered in the Collector's Edition version, is the infamous Epix Hidden Sign's, which are 30 prehistoric drawings.
The Hidden Object Scenes lack detail, which inevitable make objects difficult to find, not because they are well hidden, it's because they are hard to distinguish when there's no detail. Many scenes are multi-layered, and vary with Interactive List finds, Progressive Interactive Silhouetted Shape finds, Multiple Item finds, Finding and Replacing items back into the scene, and finding 5 of the same object in 2 categories that will give you a tool to open up the Object List. There is an optional Bubble Shoot Game as well.
The Mini Games are okay, but nothing really new. Below are brief descriptions of some of the games you'll encounter during the demo:
1) Press symbols in the correct sequence using the encryption code clue.
2) Excavate a dig site using three different tools in the correct order.
3) Position the figurines on their color coded places, then guide them in the correct order, along the slots to their
matching platforms that open up after placing them on the correct spots.
4) Slide yellow tiles to make a path for the marble to reach the other side.
5) Form a bridge by finding matching pairs of stones. Select a stone on each side of the bridge to compare them, stones can be rotated.
