I am a great fan of American Pickers TV programme so had to buy this game. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is that the game only covered a limited number of US states. This might be because they are going to bring out a sequel. The hidden items are traditional antiques and not necessarily known by names that we English are familiar with. There are plenty of hints if you get stuck, and the music and graphics are good. It would be an educational game for older children.
I was so excited when this game finally released. Only to be disappointed in the graphics. They were too much and my computer kept making weird things happen when I would try to sign on again. =( Then gaming wise, I would get to the carnival scene when I WAS able to play then I couldn't go any further because I didn't have anything to trade and I completed all the scenes. I say forgo this until they fix some of the kinks, which hopefully is soon because I really want to like this game!
I'm in my late 50's, married, full time housewife, the mother of 17 children and have 15 grandchildren with 2 more on the way later this year. I was raised in eastern Iowa where I lived over 40 years and I had the privilege of meeting Mike and Frank in person several times many years ago, long before their TV show ever became a reality. I've never had the pleasure of meeting Danielle in person. Yes, Mike and Frank are as nice in person as they are on TV. Needless to say, I'm a big fan of their TV show which is the primary reason why I played the free hour trial of this game. I really like this game ... the graphics are very good and the entire game makes you feel as though you're going on a pick with them both. In this game you're doing everything that Mike and Frank do on a daily basis including making purchases, getting leads from Danielle, visiting fascinating places across the United States and you are meeting some very interesting people, some of which are easy to buy from while some are a bit of a challenge to buy from ... the same experiences that Mike and Frank have on a daily basis. I never play with the sound turned on so I'm unable to comment about this. At the end of the day when I play computer games to relax, I enjoy doing so in peace and quiet. I think this game is a real winner and will definitely become a part of my game collection as soon as my husband's Social Security retirement check arrives.
I've watched the TV series before so this game is true to form. Fairly easy HO scenes. It took a little while to understand the sequence of the different locations, but it'll come to you fairly fast. Only downfall of this game was the constant, repetitive chatter between the two pickers. Goofy. Anyway, hope you enjoy!

I was very happy when I saw this game come out because I enjoyed playing the game Pickers very much and was hoping I would enjoy this one too. I didn't like the dialog in this game, I did enjoy the hidden object part but that is all this game is because you don't get to set any prices. I haven't even been able to finish the game because it bores me so much, big disappointment! The way they advertise this game is very misleading since you don't have any interaction during the selling phase and you don't get to set the price you will pay while making purchases.
I really enjoyed this game as I watch the show often enough to know that the voice-overs are from things I have heard from all three of them from time to time or thing I could belive they would say on the show. I think it would be a kid friendly game too, even if there are items to find that kids today would not have a clue of what they are but the hints will help and they will learn new old things as they play.

Finding the items was too easy. I did not like the the part where you had to but and sell your finds. I didn't get the point. Give me HOG's that skip all the stupid side games.

This is just like the show. It is fun, but they did not give very good or clear directions. I figured it out but they should give better directions. The HO are fun and pretty clear. The pricing does not give you the option to bargain like it makes you think that it does. I liked it but it is a short game.

I suppose if you like the show or are into antiquing, this would be an enjoyable game. I did like the straight HO part, but was disappointed in the buying. You know these guys must bargain, but you couldn't do any, which, for me, cut down on the fun. You either buy something or you don't. I didn't really appreciate the chatter or the music either. For me it was just okay.

THIS IS BASICALLY JUST A HIDDEN OBJECT GAME. THE BUYING AND SELLING IS AUTOMATED AND YOU CANT BARGAIN OR INTERACT WITH THIS GAME. I FINISHED IT WITHIN A COUPLE OF HOURS. TRY "PICKERS" NOT AMERICAN PICKERS.

I found the game fun, the voice overs were funny, and the searches were moderate. It was the perfect game for a lazy afternoon and I enjoyed it more than any game I've played in a while.

This is not a hard game, but my grand daughter had a hard time with knowing what some of the items were (after all, you are going thru some very old dusty stuff). There are a few 'dark' area's, so just click on them, there is always something hiding in a dark corner. Most items were easy to see, some were not. This is a straight HO game, no side games or puzzles. I love the sound track!

This HOG is really for beginners! Great for kids! The voice overs are redundant! It was fun but glad it was over quickly!
