As Exciting As The Face Of A Buckingham Palace Guard

mwreview "mwreview", Amazon

  • Summary: For a hidden object game about Buckingham Palace, this Hidden Mysteries release is surprisingly bland. The subject matter could make for very impressive search scenes, but they have a washed-out look and are not as clear and vivid graphically as other hidden object games this reviewer has played. Some of the scenes are a little dark and some objects are a bit difficult to see as a result.

Disappointing and repetative

  • Summary: This game lacks challenge. The items to find are the same in each scene. The extra challenges are too simple. After a short time, the game becomes boring. I had hoped with the Royal Wedding just occurring, this game would have been much more fun.

Way Too Short

  • Summary: I preordered this game and they kept changing the launch date. I guess I expected more out of the game. It is fun as far as it goes but you finish it in about 1 hour. Would have been better if the game was longer.

Not a lot for your money

  • Summary: Oh dear. I was so looking forward to getting this and even by playing just an hour at bedtime for a couple of days I finished it. There are only a handful of puzzles inbetween what they call acts. 2 of those puzzles were that obscure I had no idea what they were expecting. Each Act meant looking for a dozen or so hardly hidden at all items. In short I feel very very cheated. So cheated in fact I want to tell everyone how I feel!

  • Summary: I was very disappointed with this game as it was far to easy to complete. Same game whether you played on Queen or King.

Not as described

  • Summary: My husband bought me this for Christmas. It's ok but very quickly solved and a little boring. There are certainly not 48 levels!! Some of the mini puzzles are very random and there is no explanation of what needs to be achieved. Not sure what he paid for it but it won't have been worth it. Only buy if you can get it cheap.

Fun but too short

Csuti, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: My primary gripe is that this game can be finished in about 3 hours - so not very good value. There are a few mis-spellings e.g. tab for tap and mis-drawings, e.g. the rabbit-foot is really a light-bulb. These slow you down but not enough to make this game good value. Some interesting information on Buckingham Palace, which you could get for free on the Web, and an implausible story-line. Overall, not impressed.

not impressed

  • Summary: i did not find the game very mind taxing in fact it was very easy as each time you went into the next room most of the items were repeated so it didn't take long too do.
