Summary: This game is fun and moderately challenging. It is not nearly as captivating as MillionHeir, however. There are too few variations on the quick games but it is mildly entertaining. Difficult to see the hidden objects and they are duplicated throughout each stage. It is okay. Can't rave about it.
Mystery P.Sigh: Lots of Object Finding, But No Mystery-Solving

Summary: At first "Mystery P.I. Portrait of a Thief" was a very addicting game but, after several chapters, it became mind-numbingly repetitive and the whole mystery solving theme got lost. The storyline is that you are a detective who is trying to solve the case of paintings missing from a gallery. You need to gather evidence by finding objects in various locations in the town. You progress through 20 chapters in the case.
Summary: It has been several months since I received this game. I held off writing my review because I wanted to be sure each of my children tried the game after I finished it. You see, I rather enjoyed the game myself. It's an addictive, yet somewhat repetitive seek and find game where you, the main character, are a detective in search of an art thief. There are many objects, treasures and keys to be found, and you get to play a handful of typical memory/tile games.
Summary: this was a disappointment. it was over way too quickly. i enjoy these types of games very much. this one is fun but in 3 days i had it solved. thats way too quick. my only consolation is that i didnt pay full price for it. it also taught me a lesson....not to purchase this type of game again. it just cannot sustain my interest as long as id like.
Summary: This is an "I SPY" kind of game. I wanted it to be more like CSI though and it definitely wasn't. If you like to look for things, I recommend this game. If you wanted a more CSI mystery kind of game, don't get it. The other thing about it that I didn't like is that it went by very fast.
Fun for a while, I finished in 6 hours....yes, the entire Game!

Summary: Initially I liked this game and I found it fun searching for all of the items listed. I liked how some of the items were old fashioned looking or named by their scientific names to keep you thinking and on top of things. BUT...Eventually you get to a point in the game where there are no new items and no new pictures. Half of the time you are finding the exact same items with a few new ones added it.
Summary: I'm a 38 year old professional and use my DS to relax and not think much, it is entertaining. I was a little disappointed in this game as brain skill is really not needed. Once I figured out that all you had to do was "find" stuff hidden in the scene I finished the whole game in a couple of weeks, that's right, no more levels I've done it all except perhaps the mini puzzles. Kinda disappointing to finish a game that I thought would go on for awhile.
