What a fab, involved game - worthy of its five stars. Coming from the Wales in the UK, I go to London every now and again, and it was lovely to see all the major site seeing places captivated in the game. Some aren't quite true to life, but it doesn't matter! And to find a dollar sign on an item in one of the shops was funny considering we use pounds over here. The game has so much to do with interactive objects, puzzles, HO's you won't get bored. The map helps you along the way telling you what still needs doing, otherwise you could easily get lost as you travel around. My total play time so far is 7 hours and I still haven't finished so you get fantastic value for money if you are going to buy this. The graphics are colourful and clear and the HO' s are really clever especially in the flowershop and bakery. You have to look very carefully as they cleverly merge into another object. Treat yourself and come visit London.
Excellent game (games?). Potential developers please note, this game should be the benchmark. Interest is is held buy the quality of the puzzles. Yes, I have purchased this game and recommend it to all HOG fans.

Seeing the slighly cartoony graphics I didn't think was going to be my kind of thing at all (I thought it would be too easy). It was actually enjoyably challenging and I was glad of the built-in walkthrough (which was very easy to use without interrupting the game at all). Thankfully the walkthrough offers you both hints and explanations for each task so you can get as much or as little help as you want. It's hard to find games where everything is pitched just right, but this is one of them - the HO scenes, the puzzles (original), the difficulty level, the plot and characters, even the dialogue (brief and to the point, and not annoying!), and it was so addictive it kept me up way past my bedtime! I'll definitely be giving the others in this series a go. Not the hardest, longest or most sophisticated game I've ever played, but really enjoyable all the same.
I thought this was just another hidden object game until I played the adventure story mode...I was addicted...finished it in two days. Best hidden object game I've played. Graphics are great and the adventure had me thinking and going all over London to solve the puzzle all the while learning facts about this historical city. I appreciated that the rooms were not crammed with objects and they were cleverly hidden. Well done...how about a similar adventure in Toronto??? and New Orleans???
After San Francisco, I was hooked! And each BCA has gotten better and better, and this one again didn't disappoint. The graphics are always awesome...the level of difficulty is just right...the mini-games are original and so much fun! This was my first attempt at the story part type of game, so I was a little confused at first....I usually just play HO....but found this to be the bomb! I highly recommend this game....sure to please!
This games contains a lot of facts about the country, landmarks and historical sites to be seen. Along with good music, great graphics and arts work, lots of fun mini games and just plane old fun for everyone. What a great job you did in creating this. No crazy drama, people or places, just beautiful artwork and facts. You will enjoy or the young adults will.

I reccommend this game for new HOG fans. It is a good basic HOG game, with easy to find objects, and basic mini games. The game is below the quality of previous games in this series but, that is just my opinion.

This Premium game comes with 2 modes. The regular Big City Adventure is the same format as the other Big City Adventures: lots of fun facts, well drawn graphics, light & eye-friendly scenes ( you don't need a flashlight to find everything), family friendly topics, mini games between locations and 52 searches (so the game doesn't end as soon as your 1 hour free trial is up)... lots of fun right there and earns a 5 star regular game purchase at this point. The twist in this release is the second game mode - the story mode. In this mode, you play an adventure game - still hidden object oriented, but use items to solve a mystery.This game is also a good length, well thought out, excellent graphics and an interactive walkthrough that is actually helpful if you get stuck.... you can get help with exactly what you want and can kinda decide how much help you want. You can use a map to check what tasks remain at locations and to quickly move there. The story line flows well, conversation with characters is the right amount for the info you need and the ending is NOT the thrown together and unsatisfying conclusion we've seen with other games trying to meet a deadline. The addition of this story mode is what makes it a good buy for a premium game - not just "enhanced with a walkthrough and some extras... but a whole different full length game. After completing either mode, you unlock extras such as wall paper and screensavers. Oh, and you have the option to play casual or timed (always a plus for me as I don't always want the time pressure.) Something for everyone in this game.... story mode for more thinking.... regular mode for more clicking. Both are fun. All in all, I give this game the highest recommendation for adults as wells as kids- you won't be unhappy.
I have purchased all of the Big City Adventures because I love to find out tidbits about the different locations that they cover, but London was very boring to me, I was surprised they couldn't come up with more interesting stuff.

I loved that there were 2 types of games, the original seek and find, and then the HOG adventure. I finished them both, and were great!!!

As in the other Big City Adventure games the puzzles can be challenging and not all the objects are easily found but the game is simple enough to please a lazy senior citizen like me. I enjoy learning about cities I have never been to as well.

This was delightful - I played both the classic and story versions and enjoyed them both. The walkthrough option made the story version much more playable - I plan on playing both versions again soon.

This is an excellent game, it is in-fact two completely seperate games in one. There is the classic HO game and then there is also the adventure game. As this series is mainly HO I thought the adventure series was not going to be so good, how wrong I was. It is a full blown proper Adventure game. As a Brit what I think is sweet is how the Americans 'do London' in that are slightly sterotypical in how they portray London. The adventure game is good diverson from the usual HO games in the series and whilst there is HO scenes there is also good mini-puzzles and a well scripted storyline with a few 'surprises' and twist and turns. I would recommend this to anyone but especially people of this series and also to people who want to try a really good adventure/HO game. Try it you just may like it :)
I have been playing every Big City Adventure since they came out and love all of them! At this point they are like family! LOL! I love the new side games and have no complaints at all. Even my 85 year old mother plays this! (She gets upset when she runs out of clues and makes me find the offending object). At her age, she has trouble with the more darker games but loves this one since the color comparisons are easier for her.
You get two different experiences in one game -- marvelous. You can choose the standard hidden object approach, relaxed or timed, and enjoy the beautiful graphics and soundtracks. The HOs are mostly easy to find, but one or two will require a little extra eyeball effort. You've got plenty of hints, which you find as coins in each scene. I enjoyed reading the postcards about London and seeing where everything was on the map. The mini-puzzles between each HO game were pretty easy, except for the connect-the-wires one, which I can never do. But I loved that the Skip let me skip it right away: no waiting. The second option is the adventure/puzzle mode with animated and vocal characters, and a sense of being immersed in an archeological mystery. Very compelling, and completely different from the HO mode. I liked having the walk-through button built right into the scene to refer to, as I didn't want to waste the trial pondering too much. Amusing dialogue and characters, and an interesting intrigue. The same marvelous graphics and music. You can't beat two games in one, especially when they're this good!
I have the Big City New York and enjoy it. This is no different. I enjoy not only the classic hidden objects, also the London story too so far.

I have several of the previous Big City Adventure games and really enjoy these. The screens aren't dark like a lot of HOGs which I like. The puzzles are fun, although kind of easy so far, and it breaks up the game between searches. The game is long enough to be able to enjoy the "trip". The only suggestion I have for the developers is to make the objects a little harder to find. I usually find all but 1 or 2 rather quickly then really have to search for the last couple or use a hint. Overall, I still enjoy the Big City Adventure games and will definitely purchase this game.
I've played all of the Big City Adventures and have purchased 3 (this one included). What a nice surprise to find that the developers have added an extra level of fun by including an adventure game to the already satisfying HO game. You do not need to finish one before enjoying the other and gives you a change of pace if you need a break from just finding objects. As always, there a lots of fun facts about London to go along with the gameplay and in this one you now have a Trophy Room to keep track of achievements you attain throughout the game. I did think the puzzles were a bit more challenging in this one compared to the other Big City Adventures and admit that I did use my Skip coins more than I would have liked. Since I played it in the untimed version, I rated this Very Relaxing so I can't speak to how it would have been had I played the timed version. This a great game for the whole family and I eagerly await Big City Adventure #6.
I nearly gave the game five stars... It is very playable and even addictive. The scenes are well reproduced and someone has gone to some trouble to produce authentic little postcard stories. ...but then you notice that all the electric power sockets (in Marble Arch and elsewhere) are North American. The only fire hydrant pictured seems a bit unusual for London too. Other little transatlantic details grate too so four stars.
