  • Summary: No I don't like this one either. Everything is boring. I wanted to like it but just couldn't bring myself to. 15 minutes was enough for me.

  • Summary: I have had this game for some time and finally got around to playing it. Wonderful graphics. It's a nice HO game. There are a ton of HO scenes so if that is your thing, you will love this game. I found it pleasant, but was really done by the time it was done. The pipe puzzles and other mini puzzles were fun, not hard.

  • Summary: When I first demoed this game, I was very pleased because I thought -- and still do think that it's better than the first one. There's more to do and more to look at. Some of the objects are a bit small, but not impossible and I like moving things around to find items or buttons or whatever. It's a straight HOG which I happen to like. So, why only 3 stars?

  • Summary: I completely enjoyed this game. It was a fresh change from all the gloomy HOGs that have been out lately. I thought the story line was cute and enjoyed the hidden object searches. The characters were fun to read about and interact with and the whole game was fun.

  • Summary: I won't go through the actual game play as others have already done that, but I will add this to the reviews and hope that it helps someone. I agree that this is a basic HOG with rather mundane mini-games and not a lot of 'traveling around' for those of us who are used to more advanced games. BUT, for a starter of either HOG's or "Adventure" games, this is a good place to be.

  • Summary: I never thought I would say it! Too many HOG scenes. One after another and another and another....you get the picture. Just makes for a boring game.

  • Summary: I'm gonna differ with the comments and reviews of some of the earlier, astute posters on the merits (or demerits) of this game. It comes to us from the same developers that gave us Hidden In Time--Mirror, Mirror--that was a good HOG. This one seems to be quite a bit more. I got up early to see what BFG would offer, and was disappointed--"Mummy" something-or-other. A few hours later "Mummy's" gone (on Mother's Day?) and Mudrock's promised Hidden-in-Time is up!

  • Summary: The title sounds intriguing, a bad idea to play a game, which I keep proving to myself recently, but I did survive for a while before unloading this game which turned out to be a big disappointment. The story is a hodgepodge of sci-fi to travel back in time, a western setting and ghosts all rolled up into one long mess. For the most part, the HO scenes were easy except for the few items which didn't look like their descriptions or were too small to find.

  • Summary: This is a very straightforward HOG with little diversity. You usually play a HOG scene lets say in a saloon, then a mini game, mostly you have to connect rails from side to side while travelling through all stations and avoiding cows, switch to the back room, play another HOG, switch to the saloon, HOG, a third room opens, HOG, backroom, HOG, get the device, jump to the final puzzle, jump back to the last scene and walk to the next setting.

  • Summary: When I read the description, I was expecting something, well, interesting. A game that would have me engaged and eagerly moving from one level to the other, wanting to know what's going to happen next. Well, that never happened. In fact, I was bored to tears. The hidden object scenes were so easy that I finished them in less than a minute. The mini games offered no challenge. I kept playing hoping that it would get better, but it didn't. I didn't even finish the trial.
