I very much enjoyed this game. The illustrations of the scenes were beautiful with rich colors. The graphics were mostly crisp, although a few items in the HO scenes did fade into the background. The HO scenes were mostly easy to moderately difficult, as were the mini games. None of the mini games were particularly difficult, but they were still enjoyable. There were no moving figures within the scenes. For instance, the figures themselves didn't talk, but a little head appeared on the bottom when there was spoken dialogue. The voice overs were very well done, but I thought the talking heads were a bit odd, particularly since the mouths didn't coordinate with the spoken word. The story line was well done and drove the story forward. There was no game map, but you really didn't need one. The hint button recharged quickly, which is a big plus in my book. I consulted the guide a couple of times toward the end when I wasn't sure where to go next and found it to be very helpful. The game was not overly long, which might make some people unhappy, but it was a good length for me. Overall, this was enjoyable game play. The bonus chapter at the end was also enjoyable, even if the ending didn't make a lot of sense. Tweens might enjoy this game, but it could be too scarey for younger children. It's not overly difficult, the scenes are lovely, and the story line is entertaining. If you wait to puchase this one on a half-price sale you will get your money's worth.
