Summary: In all honesty it has been a while since I've played this game, but what I do remember is that I got bored of it very quickly. I wanted to finish it at the very least, but I really didn't like how the game play was. The sequel was far better and didn't seem as redundant or slow and dragged on as this one was.
Summary: I tried this game and enjoyed it; it's not quite as good as Mortimer Beckett, but it comes pretty close. This game does a good job on all the major areas, graphics, music, etc. I especially like their weaving two standard plots (finding out about lost family and time travel) into one game. However there were a few spots where they could have done better. One was the penalty for skipping a mini-game (that is a pet peeve of mine).
Summary: Played the demo and ended up buying this one the other night. It's kinda unique - but sort of in an annoying sort of way - but fun all at the same time (confusing, I know). Initially, I liked it because it was so different from anything I played before. But the more you play the repeated scenes with looking for obscure shaped objects (you're looking for pieces that are split into many pieces OR really bland every-piece-looks-like this type objects), I just found myself...
Summary: This game didn't work for me. It started out well with the time travel but became tedious quickly. Going back to the same places over and over, via the Time Machine, just was not enjoyable. The 20 minute time penalty for skipped mini games was overly punitive. The graphics were fine, the blonde was annoying, and the 'heroine' rather insipid. Finishing the game was an exercise in fortitude. The sequel, to my surprise, is turning out to be a much better game.
Summary: I was a little put off by the really good reviews, but here goes. The reason for the 3 stars is not due to the graphics, which are quite good. It's not due to it being a fragment HOG; I played and enjoyed Briar Rose. But what did not do it for me was the static nature of this. You find all the fragments for one piece, find all the fragments for another piece, yadda, yadda, yadda. B-O-R-I-N-G for me.
Summary: I'm brand new to Gamezebo and this is my first review. I Loved This Game! Can't wait to play the sequal. The game wasn't very hard, great historical info (if you're into it). I especially loved the fact that they had Abbey Road Studios as part of it. (Huge Beatles fan). I loved the fact that even though the rooms you went to were the same, that the perspective of the room changed, thus it seemed like a new room. I don't usually play a game over and over.
Summary: Fantastic fragment hidden object game that is even better than Mortimer Beckett due to the tremendous replay value, production values, and game length. The beta to the sequel is out and this is certainly a hidden object game that warrants a purchase. Clearly in the top 5 hidden object games of 2009!
