Summary: My 11-year-old son and I had a great time playing the Malgrave game together so I looked around for similar games. This is not it. The graphics are so bad that playing the Eye Spy games is no fun at all - and, unlike Malgrave, there is no penalty for guessing. In addition, although the voice actor cleaned it up, the written dialogue for one of the characters is offensively racist in its sterotyping.
Summary: Our family was looking forward to the release of this game. Unfortnately, it failed to live up to our hopes. Some of the seek-and-find items are very obscure. The screens are also repetitive - one has to redo the same scene many times. There isn't much to the story and the characters lack enough depth to draw one in. We have played about half of it, but I am not sure if we'll even bother to finish. It just isn't that much fun.
Summary: We were looking for a hidden object/adventure game, like Mystery Case Files: Malgrave Incident. This was not it. The hidden objects scenes in Titanic that are in the PC version, were removed for the Wii version. Bad idea. The cover says hidden object scene, and by that they are referring to a few scenes where you search for 10 of the same objects, i.e., ten pieces of paper, ten pins, ten cards, etc. Boring.
Summary: This game was fun to play but no where to go once you finish the story. So glad I purchased through QVC - was able to return the used game. The price is right if you have family and friends to borrow it.
Summary: I bought this version of the game for the Wii because I had seen the same game for PC. It is described as a hidden object game, but there was very little "hidden-object-ness" about it. There were many puzzles, but I bought it for the hidden object scenes, and there just were not enough of those to satisfy me. I am also disappointed in how short it was. It would be nice to play as different characters also. Oh well.....
Summary: I am a Wii novice and really don't play video games too much. I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as I expected. I thought it would be more hidden objects, which I LOVE, but it is more puzzles. I don't consider myself to be terribly computer game savvy, but I was eventually able to figure out most of the puzzles. Twice I had to resort to the internet for "cheat" tips just to be able to move on. I would like to see more direction in the way of hints.
Had I been able to rent it first, I wouldn't have bought it.

Summary: I love Titanic and anything to do with it. I more so got this for myself than for my kids, but knowing my kids enjoy Titanic too, I thought they would enjoy it. To me the game is pointless. The games and challenges can be difficult and impossible! There is one part where you have to crack a lock (the spinning style). Do you know how impossible that is to do with a Wii controller! Thankfully you can skip through it to move on.
Summary: Though there were some challenges, I found this game to be not as much fun as I had hoped for. I would not have bought this game for gifts if I had known the disappointment before buying. I love hidden objects games but this game was confusing at times.
Summary: Point & Click game in which you search for and collect various clues and utilize them in the correct setting. The game also includes mini puzzles that may be skipped, several dedicated stages of find 10 of... (stamps, bells, matches, etc.) necessary to progress in the game, and some "physical" moves to be performed with the Wii remote (shuffleboard, using a salt shaker, dialing a safe combination, throwing a life jacket, etc.) Hint option is also available.
Summary: This game is near impossible to figure out. I am 21% done and completely stuck. Neither my engineer husband nor my techie teenager can figure it out, either. There are no hints available for what to do next, nor are there any cheats available anywhere on the web. Further, getting the Wii remote to 'crank up the box' took feats of amazing proportions. I would not recommend this game.
