Summary: I'm torn between 3 and 4 stars because this game is not too bad! The graphics are nice and the hidden objects are really hidden well. That is why I want to give it four stars, but some of the puzzles have me puzzed. All in all, I enjoyed it quite well and if you're looking for a relaxing game, then check out the demo at least.
Summary: This is your average HOG without any of the recent refinements in gameplay. The first thing I didn't like was no real widescreen support. They put the filler bars up for the game, and as small as some objects were in the HO scenes, any amount of stretching would have helped. The game started off with fairly intricate combinations and puzzles but as you progressed through the game, the search for the talisman pieces kept getting easier.
Summary: I bought this game because its one of those that you can just relax with. I have to admit that the graphics are so-so, the music became annoying and I had to cut it off in the middle of the game. The gameplay is okay, no replay value here. There are a couple of places with very tiny items, too much so, and overall, after finishing the game, I felt it was a little too short and just not that enthralling. Glad I used a free game credit on this. Try before you buy!
Summary: For some reason I really had a difficult time finding the 'fun' in this game. I almost, on several occasions, quit the demo...but then thought maybe it will grab me if I keep playing. It didn't, but I'm giving it a C for effort. Graphics were very nice, teeny tiny HO though, a real turn off for me. Used the Hint frequently. As always, try before you buy - this game did not work for me though.
