  • Summary: I really liked the game, like its precessor. The ony reason I rated it a 4 instead of a 5, which may be the case has it not been for the minigames that I was forced to skip at the end. But overall, I enjoyed the series. Wonderfully fascinating. Now, if they made another one, it'll please me a bit.

  • Summary: 3.5 stars actually. Can't give half star here. Graphics were pretty good. Lots of hidden objects scenes. Easy inventory collection and solving of puzzles & scenes with these inventories. Not too much back tracking between scenes. The map was helpful because it indicated which area required action. Gameplay was easy as well as the puzzles. No journal to read (yay!). Story didn't deviate far from the original Wizard of Oz and as such it was a pleasure to play.

  • Summary: IMHO, 3 stars is exactly right for this game. I played the original Fiction Fixers, had a relatively good time with that, and decided to try this one. All around, it's a fairly easy game to get through, but that's what I was looking for when I bought it. (If you're looking for something that will sorely test your brain, skip this; mini puzzles and HOG scenes barely taxed me.) That being said, there's much to enjoy in this game.

  • Summary: Just like Alice in Wonderland that proceeded it, there is so much that I wanted to like about this game, but it just didn't come close to hitting the high bar set by the new Sherlock Holmes, Drawn, Nightfall Mysteries, and a number of others. I guess it felt poorly planned to me. It was as though they did a section, and then said, hmmmm, here's what the book says, what should WE do next? Then sort-of followed the book, but not quite.

  • Summary: Just like it's predecessor, it's a light-hearted game, albeit with a slightly darker colour scheme. Vile is back with big and mean machinery to destroy the land of Oz. It's pretty good and enjoyable, and yes, it has quite a few downsides. The graphics are top notch - seeing the story come to life was a delight. The HOG scenes are also much better than the previous one.

  • Summary: I don't think I'll buy this game - well maybe at $2.99. The game is enjoyable, but without challenge. The graphics are o.k. and the storyline somewhat predictable, but it doesn't offer much that is new. Hidden objects are easy to find, and repetitive - keys, shovels, butterflies, balls etc. Because there are relatively few places to explore, you need to revisit some locations more than once.

  • Summary: A very good game for the young and for those who want to play a game to pass a few hours without stress like many hardcore HOG can put you through. If it was advertised as a great game for the experienced game player, I would have given it a much lower score. I found this game to be fairly easy, but the game was intended for that player level. This is a good game for youngsters that are in the household in need for something to stay busy with.

  • Summary: Wonderful graphics and a major improvement from the first game. However, I agree with another reviewer who says the game is too short. Also, this one is so dang easy I had almost fallen asleep when the demo was over... and I was not even sleepy when I first started playing. Probably good for beginners of the genre.

  • Summary: I'm a huge fan of the story, and I was pleasantly surprised at how they integrated the story elements with game elements. Unlike the usual trend, the demo is set to end at a preset point, but that did not detract from the game in my opinion. I played the easy version in the demo, but I didn't get the impression that it would be all that challenging in the advanced mode either.
