Summary: Actually this one is quite difficult to rate. I mean you have to dig HOG's. If you think HOG's are only so so, then this definitely is not your cup of tea. Like the other Big City Adventures you are presented with a series of HOG's, in this episode they are London-based. And the HOG's are very good. Well made, objects often well hidden, but not impossible to find. You have to find the well known coins again and there are minigames, which are rather easy.
Summary: I gave this game four stars because, for what it is, it's a nice game. I'm trying not to compare it to the hidden object adventure games, because this game is straight hidden object with a few puzzles thrown in. The music is fine. The graphics are OK. They're not the best, but not terrible, either. The puzzles are incredibly easy, however. I do wish they were harder. There are hint and points coins to collect in the scenes as well as the objects requested.
Summary: I was very pleased with the original version of this game until Jolly Bear Games reworked the puzzles. There is no challenge to it now. I am very disappointed that Jolly Bear Games changed what were a few easy to medium puzzles and made them far below par. I'm glad I played the original game before they ruined it. I will not be buying any more of the BCA games by Jolly Bear. So sad.
Summary: I couldn't resist and played the demo of this "Classic" game, just because I wanted to see the difference between this one and the "London Story" game, which came out at the same time. There is voice-over. There is a choice of custom or system cursor. There is a choice of timed or relaxed mode. There is no journal or walkthrough, as there is in the "London Story" game, because this is a pure HOG (hidden object game).
