Summary: I just replayed this after I don’t know how long (years?) and was surprised how well it holds up since it’s release in 2009. It was the first in this series to add an adventure element to the HO format, and the story attempts to explain the Bermuda Triangle via the mad scientist route.
Summary: This game had surprised me! It was really great and I had so much fun with it. Graphics were fantastic, and the sound, effects and animation were really cool too. Although the music selection was good too, I did feel that it was a little 'quiet' at times - perhaps the developers didn't want the soundtrack to be too much of a distraction. I really liked the story, although the first part was a little confusing but it was comprehensible as I played further.
Summary: Totally agree with Gamezebo review. Surprising, innovative puzzles and zany gameplay. Fun twists at the end with cliff hanger presumably to lead into sequel. Where is it? Highly recommended. full disclosure: I did have to refer to the walkthrough maybe a little too often. But then I'm still kind of a new-be.
Summary: I cannot but give this truly beautiful game 5 stars. This Hidden Expedition game is quite different from the others in the series, and the HOG scenes were much better and cleaner. The puzzles all had a different twist. I loved the reworks of Da Vinci machines, and there was quite a bit of humour in the dialogue. The voice overs were good, and the characterisations excellent. In fact the Gideon person is a conflation of two people I know (coincidence only).
Summary: Actually I wish I could give this 3.5. This was a lovely game and I particularly liked the puzzles. Others found it too short but that wasn't a problem for me. Pros: Graphics were good and the storyline was easy to follow. Music was nice and appropriate for each chapter of the puzzle. Cons: The hint button often did things for you rather than just providing a clue as to how the item was to be found or dealt with. I'd rather do things for myself.
Summary: I have been playing computer games since the first Kings Quest series written in DOS, yes I've been a gamer for almost 30 years. This is my first really big disappointment. The game has a great start, excellent graphics, puzzles that make you think, and good sound, but after only three and a half hours, it's over. I purchased what I thought to be a complete game, with a beginning, middle and end. Instead I bought half a game that leaves me feeling angry and cheated.
Summary: I bought this game from Big Fish games and loved it. The graphics are fantastic, the storyline interesting and unique, and I appreciate that it did NOT put me through a whole bunch of hidden object scenes looking for items that have nothing to do with the plot. Yes, the ending is a disappointment. I keep searching the internet for a sequel, but apparently it either hasn't been made yet, or plans for it got derailed somewhere.
Summary: I have played many games of this type and NEVER experienced problems such as this one caused on my computer! After successfully making it through at least 3/4 of the game (I'm assuming, since I was never able to actually reach the end) my computer FROZE during a puzzle where the player needed to place and rotate square puzzle pieces containing images of a swan, hot air balloon, lightning and a butterfly.
Summary: I have purchased many BigFish games and they were great. This one is very troublesome, kept freezing up. Couldn't even make to the end like the previous reviewers. I will think twice before buying another BigFish game.
Summary: I played this expecting the same experience I had with their previous games , but while it was good while it lasted, the game ends VERY abruptly leaving you wondering where is the rest of the game? To Be Continued? I think not if the sequel is like this. Also, I play Hidden Object games for Hidden Object Puzzles, while theire are lots of stuff to do and solve on each area. I missed all the many scenes where I can find a huge list of stuff.
