Hmmm. not sure what's up with me and this game. Not that it was too hard or anything but I just couldn't get into this AT ALL. What I played of this which was maybe 20 minutes most of the items pretty easy to find but did have to use a couple of hints. I'm with RandiM's review as I thought this would be better as well but nearly put me to sleep. Give it a whirl though, you may enjoy it but I just couldn't get into it.

You'll definitely need to look very closely to find the hidden objects in this game. Good story line. Game is timed, which I liked, and most usually I had several minutes remaining on each investigation. Mini-games also required you to give some thought. Really requires player to concentrate and look for the details.

I found this game a struggle to play. The small size of the objects coupled with the number of sites to be investigated in the time frame allowed removed any sense of enjoyment for me. I felt like I was racing the clock throught out the entire game. The game has a number of good points, such as the graphics and the story line; However, the pressure to meet the time constraints or replay the scene caused me to loose touch with the object of the game, and the game became just a test of how fast I could find the objects. I stayed with the game up to approximately the mid point, then I threw in the towell to give my eyes a rest. There are enough positive for me to recommend that you try the game to see if you like it. Who knows, you eyes may last longer than mine. Good luck!
I'm not sure what to make of this game. It's not horrible, but it's not great, either. The graphics are great. Crisp and clear. So, that's probably the best part of the game, I admit. The story wasn't the greatest. A bit hard to follow sometimes, because you are concentrating so much on finding objects. The game is timed, and you get 25 minutes to clear 3 to 5 locations before time runs out. I did have to start over in a location, because I ran out of hints, as I could not for the life of me find a particular hidden object. Be prepared, if your screen isn't particularly bright, you will have a hard time finding some objects, plus some of them are so incredibly small, they're next to impossible to find. I've never had to use so many hints as I did in this game. You do gain hints as you finish puzzles at locations, plus you get more hints when you finish a chapter, so that helped. But, if you run out, you're screwed if you need one. The puzzles were interesting. Not a lot of help associated with what to do, but you can skip if you need to (you don't earn an extra hint if you do). I did feel the need to finish the game, as I wanted to know "who-did-it". When I did, I was left thinking .... "what?". I don't know if it was because there were too many characters (you kinda forget who-is-who), or because there were not enough clues to let you figure it out yourself. The answer is more-or-less given to you in the end, diminishing that "wow" factor. The game can last 5-6 hours (or even more), but you might want to take breaks, as your eyes may get buggy looking for objects. Replayability? Possible. You don't have to find the same objects, luckily. Story? Kinda boring. Graphics? Great. Overall? So-so.
This is one of those games that you really want to play, because the graphics are great, and the story line is engaging. All other things being equal, I would have given it at least four stars. But all other things are not equal. First of all, each segment is timed. You have three to five locations to complete in each segment, and if you don't accomplish that goal, you have to repeat the whole thing. Second, the items you need to find run from small to miniscule. Even though the graphics are good, the items are exceedingly difficult to see. Be prepared for some eye strain. Third, you are given a set number of hints for each segment. You can earn additional hints for completion of mini-games, which are mostly pretty simple. The problem here is finding the pieces to complete the games, which are also tiny. So, if you run out of hints and can't find the objects you need, you just have to sit there until the timer runs out, or you can click very fast often enough to incur 30 second penalties until the clock runs out. Neither option is very acceptable. I finished this game because I liked the story and wanted to find out who murdered whom. But with just a little effort on the part of the developers it could have been a whole lot more fun.
I tried to like this game! Objects are way too small in most instances. I was bored after about 1 hour ( but kept playing).

Not a fan...I will try again but I have finished the entire game once already. These games should be hard but dang, this was nearly impossible! I had to skip several bonus rounds and had to re-do one whole level because I didn't finish it in the a lotted time. The graphics were good and the story OK, but at times a bit confusing with so many characters. Like I said, will try it again but am not all that hopeful it will be better the second time around.
I enjoyed this game thoroughly. The objects were just hard enough to find, and I found the clues very good. I did figure out whodunit before the end, which was very satisfying. I'm looking forward to a replay.

the items in this game are just too tiny to see a lot of the time. i had to use hints quite a bit, but i was able to replinish my hints by completing the bonus activities in some of the scenes. now that was cool-collecting fireflies/arranging acorns/gathering ashes/finding the humingbirds. not only did u have to do the activity, sometimes there were things to do b/f u could complete the task-such as put the fire out in the fireplace/fill the hummingbird feeders up-that was pretty cool. the minigames appeared easy, but really took some thinking-which is nice. i liked that there were clear directions. if u like HOG's, and have great eye site, u'll probably like this one...
