Summary: I'm starting by admitting that I am a "dark comedy" fan. When you get to be eaten by a carnivorous plant in the first act you know it will be fun. The game goes somehow in the classic mad scientist script but in a very colorful exotic environment. Its a very nice change from the creepy dark scenery of the type like. Genetic plant mutations, and a helpful in the end huge eye what can be better. Otherwise it is a common object haunting sprinkled with puzzles adventure.
Summary: This game is not perfect but it was thoroughly enjoyable for the right reasons. I liked that it was in 3 acts like a play. I enjoyed the curtain call at the end. Those of you who are click-haters will not like it. The game is a typical hidden object game and provides enough hidden object scenarios to please HOGgers like me. It incorporates action sequences that do not drag down my computer because they are animated/CGI.
Summary: If i could give points for the professional review written here, it would get 5 stars from me. Everything is exactly as described - and has been written in such a cute and entertaining mannor. I did like this game right from the begin, then bought it and the switch in the hero of the game got me also puzzled.
Summary: This was a nice game to play: the story of a crazy scientist was framed around a scary plants theme that made it a little different with some pretty graphics. The story kept me engaged, although I agree with magfan, it does have a ‘hunh?’ ending, but hey, most games these days do.
Summary: Great game & very enjoyable. Length of game was pretty long, interesting captivating story, beautiful graphics, and therefore I found it value for money. Of course the effects, animation and sound were very good too, except for the music. Although it was ok, I found the scenes mostly were relatively quiet and I could only hear the background ambient/environment sound effects like insects, water, etc. Once in a while, the music would come on briefly.
Summary: Natural Threat: Ominous Shores is colorful and a lot of fun to play. It has a Hint feature that works outside of hidden object scenes and shows you the best screen exit to take in glowing purple. Hopefully the saving problems that some people have experienced will be corrected in a future fix. Ominous Shores is the first Big Fish game I've played in over a year that "forgot" all the progress I made in the demo after I installed the full game.
