Portrait of a thief

Summary: Let it be understood...I love Hidden Object games (just ask the folks at BigFish!). I have played the MCF MillionHeir on the DS as well as this one. The only real issue with either is that I'm not as young as I used to be and even with only a portion of the screen in view at any given time, it's often difficult to spot the items.
Summary: I liked this game but that's not unusual since I am a fan of the popcap games. I already had the forgotten ruins game and liked that one. This game was almost the same except you had a different story going. Although by the time I 'solved' the crime I forgot I was solving anything because the story kind of got lost somewhere. It didn't really matter to me because I really just like the seek and solve and puzzle games anyway, but hey-it was supposed to be a story, right?
Summary: The game is fun and entertaining. Love the mini games. This game could of been perfect had the makers included some kind of magnifying tool to use on searching for small things, like bugs, keys, etc. While playing I find the things I can see and for the little stuff, I use my own magnifying glass for the small things. Would of been very helpful if the game actually had one built in. How hard could that of been? All in all it's a fun and entertaing game.
Summary: Wasn't sure I would enjoy this because it was a bit different from MCF: MillionHeir, but it is good. I still go back and play it, the unlimited games since I have finished the puzzle portion. If you like Seek & Find this is enjoyable. 06/04/10 Still one of my favorites............love this game. Have replayed under different names to the point of having to delete them.
Summary: I got this game as a gold box item for about nine bucks. I found it to be a ton of fun, however after about twenty chapters of looking at the same 4 rooms I just wanted it to end. Besides that, good graphics, decent story and easy to pick up.
Summary: Growing up, we used to play I Spy ALL the time, so finding out there was a version available for the DS sounded like a great idea, and it is. It's not as easy as it looks, especially with the timer ticking down. What's nice about this is that it's become our "leave in the car" game. It's a great option for taking into restaurants, where you can quickly run out of real items for I Spy unless you're in a place with lots of toys and decorations on the wall.
Summary: I purchased this game recently to take with me on my flight to the Virgin Islands. I like seek and solve games. It's not a challenging game, just something easy and stress free. But if you like to be challenged then this game is not for you.
