Summary: This game felt very little boyish to me. Not necessarily a bad thing but maybe just not what I am wanting. From the very simplistic child like language of the dialogue and notes, (notes complete with stick people drawings), to the children building moon rockets??? a pirate ship and a ridiculously basic plot..I felt this game lacked any excitement. There was also an over abundance of metal contraptions and underwater crash sites.
Summary: Very good game, fit right in with the last one. The only problem is that some of the objects are really hard to see. It definiteley makes you think, though, and I like that. Worthy of the Hidden Expedition games which keep getting better.
Summary: Today I heard the sound of hell freezing over: I actually was relieved to see a straight-up HO scene. This game doesn’t give you many chances to sit back and relax; there are constant surprises that keep you wondering what’s next. A simple box becomes a multi-leveled puzzle. Suddenly a scene panoramas on you. A chicken become critical to solving a mini-game. There’s some serious creativity going on here by the developers.
Summary: Excellent. I find it odd that the 5 games in the Hidden Expedition series are so different. This one and Devil's Triangle are well worth a play, but the others are disappointing. This was a lovely adventure HOG. It had some unique puzzles in for a change, as well as some variations we've seen before. It was all well drawn and took you through different stages. Nice and challenging without being frustrating.
Summary: I avoided this game because I was afraid it was going to be HO scenes barely strung together with a thin plot. I actually enjoyed it immensely because there was much more adventure/puzzle to it than I'd anticipated. The scenery isn't just beautiful, it's very creative. I love the little boy's WWII bomber treehouse (wish he'd been around to build me one), and the tongue-in-cheek villainy of Undertow.
Summary: The long await sequel to Devil's Triangle, passing the expected release date by a year. Now I personally do not care for puzzles. Years of playing RPGs has trained me to hit now & ask questions latter, but I won't let my personal grievances cloud my rating, especially since I can just skip all of them. The fact that 3 people in my family own this game says something.
Summary: I put this game aside for almost a month before completing it. Not that it was bad but there were other eye catching titles that came out around the same time. I think this is the fifth in the Expedition series by BFG and being the game selling giant, they seem to do their homework pretty well in trying to improve their own games from what others get criticized for.
Summary: (Disclaimer--have played about an hour or so) Those of us who are BFG HE fans waited a long time for this sequel. As a BFG reviewer said, it came in "under the radar" and surprised all of us (including BFG's predictor, Mudrock, apparently). I was overjoyed at first, but the joy has kinda faded with game time. Beautiful opening screen, good Options Menu with all the right choices.
Summary: BFG rarely disappoints, and I certainly was not disappointed with this CE: bought it, played it for hours, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe not a must have, but a certainly play and decide for yourself.
Summary: Boy, I'm with ERIGBY...they'll be prying my dead hand off my mouse. I made it OFF THE ISLAND!!! YAHOO!! Ever wonder how finding 'like' items could prove to be a challenge??..play this and you'll find out. Perhaps there are some game wizards that could breeze through this but not I. The premise of the game has already been stated which at this moment escapes me!(smile) It is gorgeous without a doubt.
